This is How Business Owners Choose a Web Designer

by | Jul 8, 2019

You will notice trends when you investigate who built the websites for small businesses near you.

If you stick with one industry, you’ll see the same few names over and over.

In order of importance, this is how most business owners choose a web designer:

  • Recommendation by another professional they trust
  • Someone they know personally, through a friend or relative
  • Someone local who can meet in-person
  • Someone specializing within their business industry
  • Someone they can speak to over the phone
  • A big website template company – GoDaddy, Squarespace, Wix, etc.
  • Freelancer who builds websites for any small business
  • Price shop over long-period and pick the lowest cost
  • DIY

The main factors that separate you are personal communication, genuinely educating your clients about how the web works, specializing within an industry, and familiarity with your local area.

With this in mind, have you:

1) Determined a business niche you want to work with?
2) Put together a list of leads within this industry?
3) Considered your pricing structure?
4) Reached out to a business in the last two weeks?

If the answer is “YES” to all of these, you’re on the right path.
