Top Website Designers Turn Efforts Towards Future-Proofing Systems in a Constantly Evolving Industry

Leading agencies like the UK’s Web Designer Group focus on helping struggling businesses keep up-to-date with responsive design for mobile Internet use, security protocols and more.

London, England, UK – April, 2018 – Internet Technology studies have revealed just how quickly the Internet and web systems evolve, as well as the way most business owners struggle to keep up-to-date with the changes in systems, security protocols and responsive web design to make websites “mobile-friendly.”

Into this foray have come leading website design firms, such as the UK’s Web Designer Group, that are focusing their efforts on future-proofing sites for their clients in what equates to a constantly-shifting industry.

“Amidst an ever-changing online landscape, we work hard to future-proof our clients’ sites, keeping on top of all changes on their behalf so they can focus on running their business instead of worrying about their online presence,” explains Zak Ali, CEO of The Web Designer Group.

“In this day and age, modern businesses must understand that it’s all about responsive design – that is, making sure a website works on mobile phones, tablets, PCs and laptops – so that’s what we stress to prospective/existing clients, colleagues in the industry and attendees of IT-oriented tradeshows.

“The goal is always to take a future-centric stance with web design so these sites can expand and change in response to a business’ evolution.”

Today’s trends in the web development arena tend to change with the snap of a proverbial finger, with web developers having found 2017 quite the challenge because of significant technological leaps – especially with regard to web application development.

What’s more, progressive web applications, or PWAs, have become all the rage, representing an advancement of the web wherein users can experience mobile apps.

Put succinctly, these are regular websites that appear as traditional or native web apps to users, offering fast, reliable and very engaging and seamless experiences because the user saves the shortcut and the app loads quickly from the cache.

Other trending evolution’s in web development include push notification for websites, also known as “the server push,” which delivers an alert or information without the user making a request for the same, plus online customer support through the use of chat-bots, single-page websites and motion UI (user interface).

Still, the largest area of growth in the web arena seems to be the explosion of mobile device use for Internet activities, thus keeping websites mobile-friendly and SEO-oriented for the ever-changing search engine algorithms.

“In order for a company to succeed in today’s highly competitive marketplace, its website needs to look good, function well and be expertly coded to ensure it always ranks highly in search results,” concludes The Web Designer Group’s Ali.

The Web Designer Group is headquartered in London at Barbican, 88 Wood Street, 10th – 11th Floor and can be reached by calling 0333 305 2155. For more information visit www.TheWebDesignerGroup.com.

How Much Does a Website Designer Usually Cost?

Whether you like it or not, the first impression that a customer gets of your business is through your website. As the saying has it, it is a lasting impression! So before they even check out your product or service, they notice your design.

Your website’s appearance is incredibly important to your company’s success. Now, if you’ve been neglecting your website or don’t even have one yet, then it might be the right time to hire a web designer to create a website for you.

With a good web designer by your side, you can create a logo website that you can be proud of, or transform your existing website into a custom-made customer magnet that will play a huge role in increasing your sales and profits.

However, as with any investment, what you put in is what you get out. So you want to invest in a qualified and experienced professional that will deliver results. To help you along, we’ve got some helpful info on what goes into a website and how you can get the most bang for your buck through it all.

The Cost of Hiring a Website Designer

The majority of business owners are simply too busy to create a logo website on their own, even though it would be more cost-efficient to do so. Your best bet in this situation is to hire a good web designer to do the job for you.

Now, while most web design companies don’t have a set cost, they’ll give you several options to choose from so that you don’t have to start from the often confusing position of ‘point blank.’

The best part is that you’ll be given the option to customise your website according to your preferences. Considering the specific needs of your business, web design companies are able to offer a unique quote for each client.

The great thing about getting a beautifully designed and well-built website is that it will help you establish an online presence. Also, it will leverage the benefits of SEO to increase your social media presence and conversion rates.

Here’s a typical rundown of general website costs based on the most prominent web design contractors, just to give you an idea of what you can expect price wise:

  • For $500 or less: For this amount, you’re likely to get a brochure-like website with a couple of significant pages. This is perfect for a very small business with the bare minimum online presence.
  • Between $500 and $1,000: This is how much you’ll pay if you want a basic website with a few important apps thrown for good measure. It’s ideal for small businesses looking to go on the up-and-up.
  • $1,000 to $1,500: At this price range, websites are usually a bit more complex and will include a web content management package to help you keep your website up to date. It’ll have more app integrations which is great for small to medium enterprises.
  • $1,500 to $3,000: Here, you’ll get a noticeably advanced website with e-commerce capabilities, customer order tracking and some really great support features. Perfect for medium to large enterprises.
  • Over $10,000: This type of website is better suited for really large businesses that need to keep a handle on customer data analytics with advanced tracking features and databases.

Now that are well aware of what you should be expecting on your budget, you are ready! You can now better judge your options based on your business requirements and get the perfectly tailored website.
