You have more options than ever when it comes to who designs your website. Some people prefer to take the do-it-yourself approach hoping to save a couple bucks. That's a fine route to take, granted you've considered the following:
- You are comfortable using software
MS Word and Publisher both save web pages.
- You are happy with the resulting design
Be sure to get feedback from friends and family.
- You are able to optimize images to load fast
Large images load slow, people don't visit slow sites for long.
- You are able to maintain and update the site as your business changes
This can easily fall to to the back burner.
- You understand search engine optimization
Search Engine Optimization is key if your goal is to get noticed
There are also those who have friends or family that can design web pages. And that's another great option for keeping costs down, as long as this person is frequently available, and can put forth a product you feel comfortable to use to represent your organization's image. Don't forget to ask this person how they plan to successfully market your new site.
And, there are scores of companies that design and host websites priced anywhere from "dirt cheap", to "outrageous".
Then, why Dala?
We pride ourselves on only producing quality, professional looking work, that anyone from a Fortune 500 company to a sole proprietorship would be proud to put their name on. Dala will take the time to make sure your new site is marketed as much as you need it to be through search engine optimization and submission. And, we feel we do it all for a fair price.
Here are a few of our recent projects.
We hold two things in high regard when it comes to web design. First, your site should be professional. A professional looking site exudes trust, reliability, and oddly enough professionalism. No matter what your trade, or cause, those are traits you want as part of your first impression. And, your website is quite often your first impression. Second, in order to be professional, a successful site should utilize logical color combinations, straightforward navigational systems, and quality content.
And don't forget, Dala Ad Agency is a full service advertising firm. When you choose us for web design and hosting, you also have access to great low rates on all of your design needs and low pricing and minimums on quality promotional products. Our goal is to promote you.
