If a web design company is very cheap, it usually means that they will cut corners just to look more competitive on price and win the job. You may end up with an inferior web design and you will have wasted your investment. Be wary of companies who say they can deliver but cannot show any good high quality results of their own or for their clients on Google search world wide.

See the list below for things to watch out for.
Here are the top three most common aspects of poor website design:
- Poor Contrast – If you have ever had to squint at a monitor to try and absorb the information from a website that has chosen to put grey content on a white background or pink content on maroon etc you don’t tend to stay on the page long! Do your visitors a favour and choose a more viewer friendly colour combination. Colours that won’t make the content hard to read. This way you can keep visitors for longer!
- Overcomplicated – Try not to make your website too fussy through complicated navigation and registrations. If a web surfer happens to end up on your page you don’t want to scare them away with complicated features. Make your website easy to use so that visitors can find what they are looking for. Read some tips on how to improve your site navigation.
- Fact- Finding Mission – Visitors to your site should know exactly what is your promoting, selling, or offering within a few seconds of laying eyes of your homepage. Few people enjoy having to dig around for what they’re looking for. It is best to give them what they want and fast!
So make sure you thoroughly research web designers before making your choice. A great web design will be clear, user-friendly and convert enquiries into sales.
