How To Choose The Right Web Designer For Your Business

WHAT TYPE OF WEBSITE ARE YOU LOOKING FOR?

Before you start contacting web designers or web design companies, you need to know what type of website you need. Are you selling products or services? Are you creating a blog? A non-profit organization that asks for online donations? Here are some web design types to help you understand what you need.

  • eCommerce Website
    An eCommerce website allows people to buy products directly from your site. When creating this type of website, it is important to include payment options by setting up a payment processor. You will also want to make sure your website is secure and get an SSL certificate. This allows for secure payment handling.
  • Personal/portfolio website
    This type of website is often used to show examples of someone’s work. Rather than a website to generate business, it is used as a showcase and it may not be necessary to market.
  • Nonprofit Website
    While not selling goods or services, a nonprofit website may still need to set up payment options for donations.
  • Web Portal
    A web portal is often designed for internal purposes or to create users profiles. They involve a login format and may have personalized views for different users.
