Dennetta M. says, "I have been in business for ten years since I finished business school. While dealing with a family loss, divorce, recent moves, changes of address, pricing, day to day operations and everything in between I was extremely overwhelmed with everything I had to do to get my business back on track. After a couple of years with what were minor/major pile ups becoming a big mess it was Rafael with Cloud9 to the rescue and I can’t begin to say how appreciative I am! I told him my vision for my business and he got to work immediately producing income generating results! I’ve made so much money already! I’m shocked!! Just his energy alone being on your team will have your business soaring in the right direction with in 24-48 hrs. First he not only got rid of a terrible false review on Google he gave my entire business a face lift! He has rebranded me from the trademark I grew in my early 20s to a matured reflection of my years of experience and what I truly stand for almost a decade later. From seos, website development, social media management, creating content for graphics, videos, logos and so much more. He is extremely obviously knowledgeable and experienced at what he does. His consultations alone will get you moving in the right direction and you literally do not need to worry about.. or do anything regarding marketing or managing your business he does it all! You just have to do your part and he does the rest. I’m so shocked I thought I was prepared for this and it just amazes me with in 3 days he has taken me from an outdated website, social media and Google page to an up to date platforms I can be proud of with out fear someone is going to find outdated online information on my business I’d have to explain in an embarrassing conversation saying it’s just not how I do business any more. Now there’s no questions! Cloud9 literally did everything and started updating me immediately after they already completed tasks and gave me so much peace of mind!! I’m a badass dog trainer nothing makes me cry but I cried from pure joy!!! They saved and protected my business image while I was neglecting it. I was unsure of how I was going to rebrand myself and he did all the work for me literally everything. And his network of professionals that can help with other aspects of business such as accountants he works with is phenomenal. I literally ended an agreement with two people with in 3 days because Rafael doing what they do plus what I found Cloud 9 to do was more convenient and satisfying than juggling it through so many different sources. It just makes sense to give them all your business problems and step out the way so they can fix it! He is professional thorough will do his research and find stuff you didn’t even know about your business on line because he is genuinely passionate about what he does! Rafael with Cloud9 works around the clock literally for his clients and I wish him as well as Cloud9 all the success because they have literally increased my revenue just with in 3 days and gave me a second wind. In our consultation hearing him speak about my business I literally said “ you’re going to make me so much money” and I was right :) I was losing my passion for my business doing it for so long it became repetitive and a bit draining trying to maintain growth and changes on my own. I just want to say ☺️ let’s go team!!! I am so excited!! I have decided to have Cloud9 do all my marketing website development as well as rebrand my business on an ongoing basis!! I’m locked in and fully pumped because I feel like I have a great support team to help me expand my vision. Seriously don’t worry about calling anyone else just call Cloud9 if you are ready they will get you where you want to go with your business. Their experience, competitive response timing, and professional approach to the solutions to your business problems will get you there.

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.

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.

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.
