Choosing A Web Designer :

You are choosing a web designer who is the perfect fit for you and your business.

Choosing a web designer is an important task. And every so often a prospective web site clients ask me the following questions.

‘What makes your web designer different from all the others?’

‘What sets you apart?’

Therefore I wrote a ’12 POINT PRIMER’ for selecting a web design company that’s the best fit for you and your business. These are valid questions you should ask every designer.


1. “Do you have a portfolio demonstrating your creative skills and technical abilities?

We exhibit our unique design styles on our featured client’s page and clientele portfolio page. Clients favor VISIONEFX for our bold design.

2. “I already have a web site. Should I redesign my existing web site or create an entirely new web site?”

If your web site is old technology is best to build a new web site.

3. “How does the web design process work?”

We have 5 STEP PROCESS to ensure the success of your web site. Furthermore, during the project, we maintain communication with you via Onsite meetings, Email, Phone, SMS, and Webinars.

Step 1. Web Concepts – We share, brainstorm, discuss design ideas with you to firm up the interface and creative direction of your web site.

Step 2. Keywords and Search Phrases – We research, review keywords, and search phrases using tools and methods to ‘search engine optimize’ for Google search.

Step 3. Wireframe – We develop diagrams to establish your primary navigation, creating a road map for your web site framework.

Step 4. Design Comprehensives – To establish a look, feel, and style for your site, we create original designs for your review. These are posted online for your review.

Step 5. Web site Build out – After you approve of the design, we start the coding process. We will also provide a web address for viewing your site in production. Furthermore, so you may proof and test drive every aspect of your web site.

4. “Do you have experience building web sites for a wide variety of clients?”

Choosing a web designer to build a business-specific website is extremely important. We design a web site for every business imaginable. We have over 300 subcategories representing multiple businesses posted in our staging design repository.

5. “Do you create original designs, or do you use web templates?”

We brand websites to a client’s business, service, or product. Our designs are original PhotoShop designs.

6. “Can you build a custom database-driven web sites?”

Choosing a web designer that can write code is a huge plus. A coder can give you the edge over your competitors by increasing website speed by tweaking your website code. 

Our expert programmers code in .NET SQL, (Dot Net) Telerik, PHP MySQL, Word Press, Joomla, Fusion, and open-source languages.

We program in legacy frameworks to include Classic ASP, AS400, and ACCESS database. Our programmers write, develop, website programming code customized to your database and requirements.

We perform web site maintenancesearch engine optimization, and other web site enhancements for our clients. VISIONEFX believes that our clients’ relationship does not stop the day after their new web site goes live. We strive to remain the touchstone for everything ‘Web’ related. Clients can reach out by phone, email, or live chat for questions or advice. We are all about having a long-term-partnership to help you navigated the changing digital landscape.

8. “Will my site be search engine friendly?”

Choosing a web designer who knows SEO is imperative because you want top ranking for your website on Google. Search statewide search ‘web design Virginia’ or ‘Virginia web design’ or ‘Virginia web design companies’, find VISIONEFX’s first page in the Top 5. We have many competitors, but successfully competing for a spot statewide in the Google Top 10 speaks to our ability to get our clients web sites found on Google.

9. “Do you write web site content, or help write copy?”

VISIONEFX can help you with basic writing tasks for SEO purposes; however, for the heavy lifting, we have a strategic partnership with copywriters writing for the SEO and the web. On the other hand, we encourage clients to rewrite their content. No one knows your business better than you!

10. “Why is copywriting so important?”

In today’s online market place, it has become vital for a web site to communicate effectively. And also be grammatically correct. From the marketing point of view, web content must convey your message to visitors. From an SEO perspective, professional-level copywriting yields higher search engine ranking.

11. “Do you provide customers with references?”

Choosing a web designer who does not have references is like rolling the dice. Therefore don’t gamble your hard-earned dollars on a slick sales pitch. Because you want to work with someone who has a solid reputation for service and artistry, make sure you ask for references or reviews. VISIONEFX has live Google Reviews posted by actual customers.

12. “Does your price include hosting and registering a domain name?”

We recommend that clients retain 100% control of their hosting and domain. It would be best if you never put your domain name and hosting in the power of another 3rd party. Web hosting and domain registration are relatively inexpensive. The yearly cost for a typical small business web site hosting plan ranges from $120.00 to $200.00 per year depending on how many years you sign-up. We will help to guide you through the hosting setup process.
