The team at Manna Sites did an excellent job setting up web hosting for me. While I initially hired them for just hosting, their service was so good, that I decided to hire them for web design and development as well. I recommend them without reserve.

Verified review

I am an IT Consultant for a small company that has a legacy data infrastructure consisting of a database and several front-end components used for project management, timekeeping, budgeting, invoicing, and reporting. We tasked ACS Group to perform an assessment of the current infrastructure and provide recommendations for migrating to a new web application in the cloud. ACS Group performed a very detailed analysis and provided a report which included results of their analysis and recommendations. This report has proven to be very valuable in our decision making process. Ken Mozlowski was my main point of contact, and he was very thorough and helpful throughout the analysis.

I am really blown away by the prompt and professional service I've received with 365. Linh is very responsive and has tackled a big project for me quickly and perfectly. Taking this off of my plate has freed me up to complete a rebrand that must be in place by the first of the year. I wish I had hired Linh years ago. I've made so. Any missteps with my web design and SEO etc. It's such a relief to be able to hand this off to someone so proficient. A million thanks!

I have worked with RGB Web Services for about 5 years. Mike has done everything for me from transferring files from my old PC to my new laptop and setting up my Wi-Fi, to setting up my company website (including graphics). He also has helped me troubleshoot PC issues over the phone as well as email issues with my android phone. His work on my company website is of particular note. Mike and I talked about it in generalities over lunch. With his help I chose a domain name. Inside of an hour he had created a website for me to review. I wrote the website copy and I was up and running the next day! What I think I like most about Mike and RGB Web Services is their responsiveness, creativity, troubleshooting expertise, and not talking ‘geek’ to me. I run a small business out of my home and when my laptop goes down, my business stops. Computers are not foreign to me so I will always try troubleshooting on my own. When that doesn’t work I always know that Mike will take the time (and has the patience) to walk me through the problem. He never loses his cool or professionalism. RGB Web Services is beyond 5 stars in my book. They are a 10!!!

I found SeattlePH online, and I had them do my artist website, logo, flyers and marketing tools for my brand. They really did a good job and their price is competitive and cheaper than other brands. I'm also satisfied with their quality of work and turnaround time. I'm planning to have them wrap my new car, they gave me a good deal.

Lori Paulson, Helped us develop a logo for our business da Vinci Business Solutions, a company started in Aberdeen Washington that was started to provide support services for medical clinics and physician offices. Starting with Leonardo da Vinci's drawing of a helicopter type flying machine she extracted the shape of the propeller and used it as inspiration for a logo. I was very impressed with the effect of the aesthetic of her design while avoiding over complication in the design. Going beyond her incredible design, her color choice for the logo projected a strong sense of professionalism and trust. She was also able to design versions of the logo that optimized the appearance of our letterhead and business cards. She was also able to extend the artwork to our web page. We have had many complements on the look of our logo and I would eagerly recommend her to anyone who wants to upgrade their business image. I would also mention that working with Lori was a pleasure. She is very professional. when we needed some help putting together a brochure, she went out of her way to make it happen for us even though we came to her at the last minute. If you need to create powerful imagery, want to work with a professional you can rely on and to know your going to get value for your money, I would recommend you contact Lori Paulson.

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.
