You’ve seen the adverts ‘Websites from £10’ and you’ve probably been tempted right? But opting for cheap web design can have adverse effects on your brand image.
These days all potential customers will look at your website before doing business with you. Your website is an extension of your brand so effective web design ensures potential customers are able to find, understand and remember your business.
Your website needs to be attractive and professional, if not you may as well not bother having a website. If you cannot be bothered trying to grab your reader’s attention why would they want to bother finding out more about what your business has to offer?
Cheap web design will cost more in the long run
It is easy to try and save money by spending as little money as possible on marketing, most business owners are often tempted to either do it themselves or hire a cheap designer. I bet you’ve had similar thoughts?
Further down the line you will realise that your website doesn’t look professional and it is not moving your business forward like you initially thought it would. So you will realise that you need to find another designer, this time you may think you need to hire an expensive designer as they will get you better results. This is no guarantee for success; there are some fantastic graphic designers out there who do not understand website design is not the same as good graphic design.

A Bad Website will damage your Marketing strategies
You will use your website to promote your business via different means such as advertising, radio, e-marking, direct mail, in which time you will probably end up spending a lot of money and not seeing much benefits from this.
As a small or medium sized business – or any sized business; you cannot afford to waste money and see no results from it.

Do your research
Look around for the best deal by all means, but ensure to find a quality, well trusted web designer, who has a high rating. Every web designer should have a portfolio somewhere, if they don’t personally I would be a little concerned but perhaps you could drop them an email and ask them for some examples. They might just be in the process of changing up their own site/portfolio.
