With all the people who design and build websites, it can be difficult to know what questions to ask, especially if you don’t know much about web design. Here are some questions you can ask a person or company you are considering hiring for your website project:


You should start by checking out their portfolio, and read any online reviews. Do you like their website design style? Are there any bad reviews that should make you leery of doing business with them? A little bit of research can go a long way. 

Next, ask them what browsers your site will work on. If they don’t say “All browsers and all devices,” you have a problem. Follow up by asking how they test and make sure your site works on all devices, and is optimized for phones. If they can answer sufficiently and put you at ease, it is a good sign.

If you are working on  time frame, ask the designer how long until your site will launch? Make sure to lock them into some sort of time frame so that you know when you can expect to have a site, and that they are committed to getting it done. 

Make sure to ask your local Alameda web design expert if they provide any extras with their web design service, you might be able to get some extra design or marketing work. 

Finally, make sure to ask them what happens after your site launches. After all, designing the site is only part of the issue, you really need to focus on making it work for you, marketing-wise.
