Sit down with a Web Designer
Anytime I ever meet someone, when they ask what I do and I tell them “Web Designer” , they always have a lot of questions about what I do. Questions like: “What is SEO?”, “Why is WordPress so popular?” , or even ” Whats it like to be a web designer in Marietta?”. A lot of people have different questions so I thought I’d write a blog to get it all out there.
Here are some questions people have about Web Design development.
Q: Why is WordPress so Popular?
A: Well, that’s a great question. WordPress is actually the most popular and widely used web platform in the world. There are over 66 Million websites on the web currently running WordPress. A few reasons its so popular:
1) They have a great CMS system that helps make it easy for anyone to make updates, change content and install plugins.
2) Google loves WordPress, and prefers higher ranking towards WordPress sites then others
3) Support. They have the best support network!
Q: What is SEO?
A: SEO stands for ‘Search Engine Optimization’, but the term means much more. SEO encompasses many different things but mainly its the practice of promoting and improving a website. Using different tools such as Google Analytics you gather information and statistics about the people visiting your site. By breaking this information down and studying the data you find areas in which your site could improve. You make the improvements and then gather more data and repeat this cycle.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A:Helping others succeed by giving them the tools a well built website can bring. We’re putting our stamp on the world (and creating the internet really), who wouldn’t love doing that? Being able to be creative and work with new technologies is also a plus.
Q:What do you wish customers knew about you or your profession?
A: In a perfect world I’d like for people to see great Web Designers, Developers and Programmers alongside that of a Lawyer, Doctor or Psychiatrist. Much like these professions it has taken a long time to hone this skill, a skill in which involves many different softwares ,programs, and languages you have to know off the top of your head. Like a Lawyer needs to remember a specific law or code for speeding in Arizona, a Web Developer needs to know the code for calling a specific function in PHP or RAILS. There’s a giant library of information we have to know and continue to learn and master to perfection. Its creating the internet, there are no simple tasks here.
Q:Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?
A: I believe we are a more personable than other web design firms. You and your business aren’t just another file on a desk or icon on a screen to us. Once we become your web designers, we are committed to helping your business succeed, that’s what web design is all about. Not just creating it, throwing it back and saying “Here’s your website, good luck “. We are available to all of our clients, give great support and communication when needed and quickly.
