Web design price, quality and value compared

Our CMS Design Tip # 1: Budget funds to get the highest quality possible for the initial development and launch of your custom CMS web design.

Like any consumer product, paying more for durable quality provides value for money spent. This is also true for a custom CMS web design. To set a design budget, our tips for analyzing web design prices can help you avoid the mistakes others make.

Value depends on quality, so an expensive price for an attractive website can be misleading. A cheap price even though good looks could also be a mistake. If you are looking for the cheapest price and lack the technical skills to analyze the quality, you may end up with a clunker that just doesn't work. Imitation websites and consumer products can look real until they fall apart.

A quick quality test for any website is validating the code, so Google the phrase "validate html" to locate the free online W3C tool. See the work of a potential designer testing your design. If the site is in xhtml and complies with W3C error-free, it is a good indicator that the designer cares about quality. The following tip provides more tips for evaluating a CMS web designer.

Options when selecting a CMS web designer

Our CMS Design Tip # 2: Evaluate your font options to create custom CMS web design based on your quality and experience.

An amateur CMS web designer who says "I can do web design" is probably correct. Children age 10 and younger at the elementary school level can design websites. Creating an attractive custom CMS web design may seem easy, but creating a website that works well in attracting business and search engines is different.

Here are the CMS web design service options to consider. The first 3 could be free, except for the time necessary to configure, manage and update your website. The other web design options involve costs.

1. Do it yourself Web design
2. Trust a friend or family member
3. Use a free standard template
4. Buy a premium CMS template
5. Hire a freelance CMS web designer

If you are inexperienced, the first 4 free or near-free web design options involve climbing a steep learning curve to have a quality CMS website that works well. With zero experience, it can take 200 or more hours just to research, evaluate, and select a good CMS software package, and then modify it to its unique look in preparation for installation and launch.

Hiring a freelance web designer may be the best option, but use due diligence to verify their quality and experience. Have them provide evidence of performance for your website. Request links to customer CMS design projects that also demonstrate quality and performance for your customers.

Inexperienced designers can either exaggerate or exaggerate. Many prefer to discuss what they will do for you without real evidence. This has been proven by uncovering the lies of companies that ask for web design work as subcontractors, but cannot prove the results for their site or their clients. If a person or company can really provide a quality custom design solution that works well, they will have evidence.

Another test is to ask if the designer can create a custom CMS in xhtml in a tableless layout with valid W3C code with the ability to add new text pages without learning advanced technical skills. A custom design that meets that phrase should show off well now and in new computing inventions for years to come. You may want to request proof that your designs are compatible with all browsers and will also display well in all major browsers,
