How many times have you seen a fancy website, that instantly gets your full attention because of its incredible design? Probably a lot of times, but there is a big secret behind that.

The key for a good, and converting website is to hire a professional Website Designer – yes, it was not so difficult to get it.

But if you are a business owner – or anyone who wants an online presence – you might be wondering: How can I get a website like the pros?

And yes, there are a LOT of agencies that create websites all around the corner. But if you are looking for a professional web designer in Singapore, then you need to take a few things in consideration first.

Are you ready to learn what are the SECRETS to hire a good – and reliable – designer?

1. Know What You Want For A Website

No doubts that there are a bunch of web designers in Singapore waiting for you to get in touch with them. But you can't just talk to each one of them – well, it would be a waste of time.

Before contacting one, you should have a clear idea of what you are looking for. Are you looking for a portfolio? An eCommerce shop? A Blog? Or something unique that you can’t describe with words?

A lot of them don’t work in specific fields (Many of them don’t work with Content Management System like WordPress, Drupal, HubSpot or Squarespace). For example, designing an eCommerce shop is different from creating a blog, or a personal portfolio.

They will always accept your job, but they will fail to deliver – only if you don’t specify what you are looking for before getting started.

Use this as reference before talking with a designer:

2. Ask Questions

Would you pay a thousand dollars up-front to someone who didn’t get your main idea? I am sure you wouldn’t. That’s why you need to be careful before hiring.

Just by asking the right questions you can end up with an incredible website, or a terrible one. Make sure your designer understood what you are looking for. Such as:
  • What Do You Need To Get Started?
  • What Is The Final Price?
  • What If I Am Not Satisfied?
  • How Will I Gain Access To The Site?
  • How Would I Modify Things In The Future?

This kind of questions could save both of you a lot of time. And time is priceless.

So before hiring your next web designer, try to ask as many questions as possible. But obviously, be frank and consistent.

3. How Long To Build A Website?

You might be anxious about getting your website ready. But remember that Rome wasn’t built in only a few days.

Obviously, if a web designer is asking for less than 14 days to develop a static HTML website – don't even think twice – say no. To develop a good website, they will be asking for 30 – 45 days to complete. It also depends on all the features and stuff you require, of course. It is not the same to build an eCommerce store and a personal portfolio – just like we mentioned earlier.

Just remember this – your time is your most valuable thing. Follow the provided timeline closely and work within the given deadline. If your project exceeded way beyond the deadline, just look for another agency that could help you out with your website.

4. Set A Budget For Website Design

Probably the most important thing you need to consider. Well, you might care about your money, and no one likes to spend on non-worthy stuff.

Your website will be an investment, and you need to find a good and reliable designer that satisfies your expectations – and can help you out with that. So before hiring, try to make a budget.

Set your goals beforehand. How much are you willing to spend? How much is the web design agency or freelancer designer asking for? Asking this to yourself could help you save a big amount of time.

Bear in mind that prices might vary a lot between different agencies. But the ones asking for a low amount are probably not worth it. Good and solid projects aren’t cheap.

In Conclusion

Alright, so now that you read the full article, you probably know what are the “secret weapons” to make a good hiring – and get things done, properly.

Don’t set high expectations, you can’t expect to receive a website like the Pros for $200, in only 7 days. Good things take time, and you need to be patient.

No one likes waiting or spending a huge amount of money. But consider your website as your most significant investment. Having an online presence is unique, and you will be proud of that in the future.

"If your business is not on the internet, then your business will be out of business."

Most businesses have admitted it. Having their website makes them fully authentic and compelling. Thus, by being online their sales have increased by 40%.

So, now that you know all the facts and “secrets” behind hiring a good web designer, just ask yourself this:
