I first worked with Tara 25 years ago, and then hired her into Andersen Consulting when I was promoted into a leadership role at our World Headquarters. I have always known her to be professional, delivering high quality content (e.g., writing, editing, copywriting). She's an effective communicator who can handle PR, content strategy, social media, etc. At my current company where I am SVP of Operations and Customer Success, we leverage a network of freelancers to help deliver content for customer websites, customer SEO blogs, and social media posts. Tara is one of our valued freelancers. I would highly recommend her.

    Affordable Small Business Website & Graphic Design did for me what I had been trying unsuccessfully to do for myself for years--that is create an attractive, concise, well designed website that would give people a quick but all-encompassing, accurate, overview of the landscape design and installation services that my company provides. Terry paid close enough attention to the particular talents and specializations of the members of our design/installation group to be able to portray these uniquenesses to people who are looking for the perfect company to transform their outdoor environment. I was impressed with her ability to quickly get to know us well enough to be able to portray our particular styles of design/installation service in a stunningly clear way on the website that she designed for us. She also demonstrated an impressive insight into the San Francisco landscaping market in order to help us refine our marketing direction to one which is appealing to just the cross section of the local population that we find most exciting to work with. Since we took advantage of Terry's services, it has been quite rewarding to get inquiries and new clients from people who have landed on our website through various and unexpected ways, such as being referred from Craigslist to our Thumbtack listing, and from there to the website that Terry created for us. I am happy to say that Mediterrasian Landscapes has grown as a result of the services provided by Affordable Small Business Website and Graphic Design.

      I believe my work is a reflection of not only myself but my customers as well. Because of this, I always strive for only the highest quality, working with you to get the perfect product that represents your unique style, passion, and personality. I charge by the product not by the hour to ensure I am able to put in the extra time to get your site, design, or logo the way you want it. I love my job because it combines my backgrounds in both art and computers. It also gives me the ability to express myself and my clients passion, personality, and beliefs in ways that would otherwise be impossible. It becomes more about creating a work of art masterpiece, or learning a new skill, in which I can spend as much time as necessary without charging additional fees.

      Q & A

      Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

      Why should you hire a web designer?

      Your website is often the first thing your customers see when they’re searching for a business or service on the web. As the face of your organization, your website needs to be attractive and functional, offering the latest features that users now expect. To plan and design a site that both reflects your company’s mission and values and appeals to customers takes a professional web designer. While free online services can help people set up websites, web designers can provide a unique solution made specifically to meet customers’ personal or business needs.

      Most web designers offer a wide variety of services to make your website aesthetically pleasing and easy to use. Modern web design must be mobile-friendly and scalable, capable of expanding to include a blog, social media sites, and even video streaming; web designers are experts at integrating various web technologies. They can build the site, add functionality, test it, launch it on a live server, and track and maintain its performance.

      In addition to web design and graphic design, some web design providers also offer development and security services, including search engine optimization (SEO), social media marketing and management, logo design, site maintenance, domain registration and hosting, protection against malware, and digital marketing and content services.

      What should you look for in a website designer?

      A professional web designer creates the look and feel of your website, collaborating with you to choose colors, creating logos and other branding materials, establishing page layouts, and creating sample pages. An important part of web design is making sure the site is functional, meets your goals, and is easy for users to navigate. When you’re looking to hire a web designer, start by reviewing the person’s portfolio. Look for samples of work that match what you envision for your website, including experience building the types of pages or features you want. Make sure the web designer is familiar with your industry and understands both industry trends and web design trends — an old-fashioned or out-of-touch site will turn customers away rather than intrigue them.

      Because web designers tend to work as freelancers on a project basis, they must be excellent communicators, willing to manage their own work, and available on your schedule. Some critical skills, such as working collaboratively and responding enthusiastically to feedback, aren’t core to good web design, but make working with a web designer much easier. Finally, look for a web designer who has cross-functional knowledge, such as understanding marketing and conversion rate optimization in addition to web design.

      How much do web designers charge?

      The average cost for hiring a web designer varies greatly depending on the scope of the work, which may range from building a site from scratch to rebranding an existing one, as well as the amount of content and graphics the designer will create. In general, the more complex the project, the more time the design agency will have to spend. Because web designers often work on an hourly basis, the longer the project, the higher the costs; you can count on the web designer spending at minimum 10 hours to create a very basic website with just a handful of pages with few elements. Prices also depend on the designer’s skill set, the process, and the company’s rates. In general, the national average cost for a basic website package starts at $500, but a customized website can cost as much as $2,000 or more. Here are typical average hourly rates, broken out by the complexity of the work:

      • Basic layout and user interface: $15-$40 per hour
      • Content management system design: $20-$50 per hour
      • Custom website design with custom code: $45-$75 per hour

      What do you look for in a web design company?

      The web design company you choose must be able to interpret your company’s mission and identity and turn it into an appealing website that connects with potential customers. They must help you reach your target audience and meet your business goals. A web design agency should have on staff both talented web designers, with fresh ideas and extensive technical and creative skills, and a marketing team that knows how to drive traffic to your site, encourage visitor engagement, and convert visitors into customers. Web designers should be able to build in search optimization and integrate your site with a content management system and e-commerce tools. Look, too, for a website design company that understands responsive design and can optimize your website for mobile devices and desktop browsers. The right web design company understand current design and website trends, has experience building sites in a variety of industries (not just yours), and has an expansive portfolio of live websites. Finally, don’t simply hire the cheapest bidder — in web design, as in all things, you get what you pay for.

      How do you hire a web designer?

      You’ve determined that the best way to create a professional, modern, mobile-friendly new website is to hire a professional web designer to build it. To hire the best person for the job — and to get the web design that best fits your company’s identity — it’s important to ask a few key questions:

      • What’s the scope of the work? Will the website be basic with just a few pages about your company, its services, and contact information? Or will it also have an e-commerce section for online shopping, a blog, or content for visitors to download? Before you hire a web designer, make sure you have a thorough, specific list of the components you must have the designer include in the web design.
      • What do you want your website to look like? Consider websites that are similar to the one you’d like to build, ideally in the same industry or serving similar types of customers. Build a set of examples of types of pages, design aspects, and website features that you can hand off to the web designer — the person you hire should have experience creating websites with the features you want. If they don’t have the right skill set, they’re not the right pro for you.
      • What’s the web designer’s start-to-finish process? What will the final deliverable be? Before you hire someone, make sure their availability works with your timeline and that their process meets your expectations. Most important is finding a web designer who will work collaboratively with you to create a successful online presence.
      Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
