One of the biggest advantages to the internet is the ability to communicate and work with people from all over the world. This has been especially true when looking for someone to build a website. It’s now possible to hire a designer from anywhere in the world. The downside of this has always been it’s hard to tell if the person you are sending your money to is legitimate.
The answer to this might seem simple; find someone locally to build your site. Anyone that has tried to find a local designer knows that it’s not as easy as it sounds. While there are thousands of designers there are also thousands of different requirements and designers specialize in different requirements. Sometimes it will require a complex back-end or a shopping cart. It’s difficult to find the perfect designer for your site in your local area.
There are precautions you can take when evaluating any designer. Ask the potential designer for examples of his/her work. All designers should have a portfolio of websites they have designed they have created. Make sure that the examples they are showing have the same functionality that you are looking for in your site. If you are you are looking for a Flash website you need a designer that has experience with Flash. A designer that creates Flash sites might not have experience with creating a shopping cart site.
Every week we get emails and calls from people that have a designer that has gone missing. They aren’t able to contact the designer; all of their emails and calls are ignored. It’s not uncommon for the person to have invested money in the design and there is absolutely nothing to show for the money they have spent. They have wasted precious time and energy hoping for something to come out of it.
