Web users are often asked to create a website with a “WOW factor.” The term “WOW factor” means different things to different people. Usually, people or companies that order websites have great animation projects, home screens, cartoons, and attractive designs… this is not a WOW factor. Innovative for some people, but can actually block other users of the site: find the right balance.
If a person wants to buy a pair of shoes online, his task is basically to find the pair of shoes needed at the right price as soon as possible. Don’t visit e-commerce sites to see animations of dance shoes on the screen. Leaving unnecessary cartoons and animations, these cartoons and animations don’t add value to experts in their field. People watch this kind of entertainment from the Simpsons. They can’t access (or be impressed by) your website and are “glamorous” by irrelevant attempts.
Our interpretation of “WOW Factor” is a very easy to use website that is clean, tidy, easy to use and fast to load, and rich in content. Basically, sites that transmit basic messages quickly and succinctly are most effective. Google has a WOW factor and you won’t see slow-motion animations on this site. The WOW factor should mean Win on the Web and not something else.
So, you have set some goals and requirements… It’s time to start looking for the right people to continue implementing the solution for you.
Select a web designer/developer
Initially, the best starting point was to develop a short list of designers. You can choose to do it differently, but here are some suggestions you might consider:
The designer’s location is possible. This may or may not be a factor for you. Some people are happy to work remotely, and some prefer face-to-face interaction. If this is important to you, then you should focus on the designers in your area.
Designer’s portfolio. This is usually a key factor in any screening process. You can choose to focus on the designers who work specifically in the industry you are targeting, or you just prefer other independent websites (white label web development) that you develop.
Word of mouth is recommended to be independent. You may have received enthusiastic reports about specific designers and their after-sales services. Don’t ignore this.
The size of the company In general, the size of the company allows you to understand the quality, the work that can be produced, or the services that can be provided. Some SMEs prefer to work on a more personal level with smaller suppliers or independent designers, while larger companies tend to oppose the opposite.
Cost: Most professional web designers tend to design tailor-made works for each client, and most will not release prizes. (We do this) However, the preliminary discussion should be able to provide you with approximate numbers based on at least your needs map. Some designers can also offer cost-effective “off the shelf” solutions at a fixed price.
Tip: Get a fixed price quote instead of an hourly rate. Let’s face it… If you think that a designer can spend twice the time doing the same job, then the hourly or daily rate is meaningless.
Web designers usually post their previous work on their own websites, but keep in mind that they will adjust the design and structure of the website based on the requirements of third parties who may not be yours. More importantly, believe that you can implement your solution, rather than reading too much in other design work that you don’t necessarily like.
