It seems that almost every Tom Dick and Harry do web design in one form or another. Everyone seems to know a friends' brother's son who can build websites for real cheap. Why choose to pay the sometimes high fees that web designers charge?
There's a right way to build websites and there's a wrong way to build them.
There are a number of consideration when building a website. The first is that the website being created is search engine friendly. I've seen some websites built in such a way that search engines couldn't see more than the home page. This results in a fraction of the traffic potential that would otherwise result for the website.
Professional or Mickey Mouse?
A poorly designed website reflects on the business that it is attached to. When your prospects visit a website that is poorly created, they will tend to project that first impression onto the rest of the services that your company has to offer. This can affect everything from how often you close sales to how much you can charge a client. In other words, it hurts your bottom line.
Anyone can create a simple web page. How many people can create a professional image?
What kind of recourse do you have?
If a high school kid is creating your website and something goes wrong or you spend months waiting for it only to find out you wouldn't want to use it anyway what can you do about it? When you choose a professional web design firm that can provide you with a list of satisfied customers, you can at least look to a track record you can count on.
You get what you pay for
If you pay someone to build a simple website for you that ends up turning customers off, how much has that website really cost you? Getting a professional looking website may be more costly up front but it will pay for itself many times over in the long run.
Communicate a consistent Business Image
By having your website created by a professional and having the content of that website written by a good business writer, you can have a powerful ally towards increase business sales and customer satisfaction. Choosing the right professional website designer can go a long way towards helping you achieve your business goals.

Has Your Design Firm Run Amuck With Your Web Site?
What's happening to good web site design? Somehow we creative types at interactive and traditional ad agencies have run amuck - we're building web sites that may dazzle the senses, but don't really communicate much about our client's business or products and services!1.
