Choosing a Web Designer in Abbotsford
Many small business owners struggle with deciding on how to make the right choice for designing their websites. They search the web for help with their website and find that the choice is harder than they thought.
Currently, there are (literally) millions of websites that claim to be professional web designers. However, one must be careful in choosing the right person or people in which to trust their company image.
Web designers fall into four general categories: freelance amateur, freelance professional, Web Design Company, Web Development Firm. You can also choose web design services in Abbotsford at www.firstpagemarketing.com/abbotsford-web-design/.

The majority of web designers you will come across, especially searching the Internet, are freelancers. That is individuals who do web design but are not employed by a web design company. Some are self-employed professionals but most of these freelancers are amateur-hobbyist types.
They find a copy of FrontPage came with their MS Office Suite. They discovered how fun it could be to make web pages so they started telling their friends that they could "design" web pages.
The "pros" of using an amateur is that they are very cheap. The "cons" are too numerous to mention, but I'll point out a few. They have no training; they have little knowledge of what makes a good website work; they do not understand HTML code or CSS but only FrontPage point and click; they do not understand general design and layout concepts and they have little real experience.
The biggest reason they should be avoided for the serious businessperson is that their work looks amateurish, which makes your company look amateurish.
