Frequently Asked Questions
What’s the difference between a web designer and a web developer ?
In short, a web designer is the architect of your online space, while the web developer is the construction worker.
The web designer will design the aesthetic and layout of your website, using programs such as Photoshop to design and structure a well-branded asset for your business.
A web developer will then take the design and actually build the website, writing code and using content management systems to make sure the website is fully-functional.
If you happen to be looking for a web designer rather than a developer, you can hire one by clicking here.
How can a web developer benefit my business?
Here's the deal:
88% of consumers will never return to a website after a poor user experience.
And do you know something else?
70% of users have abandoned their online shopping carts due to a poor user experience.
If you want to make the most of your hard-earned sales leads...
...it’s imperative to have a fully-functioning website to prevent them from slipping through the cracks at the last hurdle.
The average freelance web developer will have hundreds (or sometimes thousands) of high-converting web development projects under their belt, leading to a far stronger ROI than a DIY effort.
Still not convinced?
Here are three further advantages of hiring a freelance website developer:
- It’s highly-customizable: DIY web building platforms lock you into stale-looking design templates with limited customization. Hiring a knowledgeable web developer allows you to gain full creative control over your website.
- It’s good for SEO: Search engines take various technical aspects of a website into account when ranking your website, such as site speed and link structure. A web developer will take these metrics into account when designing your website, allowing you to dominate the search engines.
- It saves time: Unless you have prior web development experience, building & optimizing a website can take a significant amount of time. By hiring a web developer to build a reliable and high-converting website, you free yourself up to focus on running your business.
