A successful website depends on a collaboration in which the site owners bring an intimate understanding of the project, while the web designers bring familiarity with the endless possibilities offered by a website. Just as the designers will need to learn enough about your venture to be able to showcase it properly, they’ll also need to teach you enough about the web to enable you to make smart choices and understand the ways in which your website can most benefit your project or organization.
Making the Right Choices
A thousand and one decisions go into creating a website; your designer must be a good and clear teacher so that you can make the best decisions. But most web designers take a different approach: it’s fastest, easiest and most profitable for a web designer to make as many unilateral decisions as possible, without even informing the client of possible options. This is a terrible sin for a web designer; taking the time to give you enough background and understanding to be a full participant is crucial to creating a successful website.
Because websites come with a budget, teaching you about aspects of web design is more than an academic exercise. Being able to decide what you really need and what is just a luxury can make a difference of hundreds or even thousands of dollars. Understanding what features are necessities is critical, while some apparent economies may seem to save money up front but cost even more over time.
