Koala Bottle has been a customer of Grover Web Design (GWD) for over two years. GWD's services have been unparalleled and fantastic! The relationship started because of our need to improve our on-line presence and e-commerce experience of our customers. GWD's services were attractive because of the time and energy that GWD put forth to develop the relationship and to understand our needs. In the end, this created a great product for us that we can rely upon and that our customers can enjoy! Equally as important, however, the cost was more competitive than any other website development services that we could find globally.

Working with Ebony made an overwhelming project feel easy and manageable. Her extensive knowledge of web design and website development helped ensure that our project was completed on time and under budget which made a huge difference in kicking off a rebranding initiative. Ebony was always quick to answer questions and not with jargon but in simple terms that made sense. I'd happily work with Ebony again in the future.

Verified review

I am a Life-skills Coach and Author with Lenell Geter Enterprises, LLC and I live in Columbia, South Carolina. Since five years ago when Don Titus's company, Dokati Interactive, designed my website, I have continued to use his company to service my website. I was very impressed when Don was able to take my verbal input and limited sketch, as this was my first website, and to fashion it into a working website replete with an e-commerce shopping cart that he designed and programmed from scratch. Don was able to quickly grasp my design concepts and to implement my ideas into a website that I am very pleased with today. It took Dokati Interactive nearly five days to complete my website. Don has gone beyond what I have expected of him several times; especially, once when my online web hosting company crashed and I lost all of my data. Don was able to help me to navigate the process such that I was able to retrieve my information from his secure back-up services. The quality of Don's work is outstanding as he returns my calls timely and provides me with the correct solutions on the first time.

I had an excellent experience with Nancy. She created a website for me. We worked together at her location and it took about three individual sessions to complete the project. She began creating my website immediately and did not allow my uncertainty to curtail our progress. The quality of Nancy's work is excellent. She is very knowledgable and shares her knowledge and expertise freely. I learned so much from Nancy about managing my own website. I highly recommend Nancy for website design. She is very creative and makes the whole process enjoyable.

    I am a marketing professional, part owner of two companies, Stumpies Marketing Group and Stumpies Jumpies. After researching many graphic design / web design companies we came to the conclusion that Prime Art House is where we needed to land. What a fantastic choice that has been! Josh Krueger, along with his sensational team, has done wonders propelling our business by leaps and bounds in the area of web presence and cutting-edge design. His team has brought a fresh, creative, and intuitive prospective to our site. They have introduced me to programs that run in the background and monitor how our customers are using our site, that along with Prime Art House's watchful "eye"we have had more contacts and referrals than ever before. All this with reasonable rates and a willing and able staff. Invest in your business by hiring these professionals, YOU won't go wrong!!!!

    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.
