It’s Critical for a Web Design Company to know its Customers’ Preferences
#1
There is no dearth of companies offering web designing services to companies. They offer many aspects of designing apart from just designing a page. It includes logo designing, brochures and visiting cards to name a few. Individuals and companies new to this field feel quite odd in getting to the terms and coping up with the requirement from their customers. This blog is written with the perspective of helping those web designers and also for the customers what to look for before finalizing a company for the web design job.
US is a big market for any type of business and industry. As a new designer operating in a metropolitan city like NYC is both an advantage and a curse. Advantage is that there are lots of people residing in and around the Big Apple who search for a web design agency nyc to get their work done. SO the market is huge and full of opportunities. The curse is that you need to be always on your toes as thousands of companies and even more freelancers offer their services and you must remain one step ahead of their strategies to have any chance of survival.
Selecting the Customer
While no company would want to say no to a client and refuse to build a website for them, there is a growing need among companies to select customers who can offer them benefits in the long term. For example, I am sure that you must have come through some people who are hard to please no matter how much effort you make. Some of them, of course, do this deliberately to make sure that they can irritate the other person and show that they know everything about web designing and the other person is a fool.
When a customer gets in contact with you for the first time, don’t just quote him high rates for work and try to please him with your portfolio and past track record. Make sure you listen to him very carefully and make a good guess about his personality. I am not asking you to start judging each customer perfectly as it is not possible. We all are not masters in reading human psyche but we can learn some skills in this regard. Once you will work for such customers, you will automatically develop skills about how to deal with them over the course of time.
Completely Satisfying the Customers is not Easy
Web design is an evolving field and trends come and go. You will usually find customers who are in awe of a particular trend or theme and that’s why they insist on getting that trend incorporated in their website. Well it’s your job to design a website according to the related business and product. You cannot apply a Barbie theme for a law firm or a candy store theme for a business consultancy firm. That’s where you will grow not just as a designer but a better person who can persuade other easily.
On the other hand, there are designers who go all out to satisfy their customers no matter what. They offer unlimited revisions, redesigning, change in content, etc. They try to pamper their customer as much as they can but in the process lose the confidence of the potential customer. He thinks of them as non-professional as they are not sure of what they are designing and don’t have the power to convince a person even if they are right. That’s a negative point that as a designer you have to get away with.
 
A Tip for Customers looking for a Good Designing Firm
If you are searching for a designing firm in the NYC area, it is not a very hectic job but can be a little tiresome as you have to select a single company from virtually hundreds of thousands of firms operating from the city and beyond. Make sure you check the portfolio of the company and the list of their clients. Double check their claims and only then sign the agreement. Don’t think of higher rates as an indicator of genuineness and credibility of a company nor shy away from a company just because it is demands a high sum. Go for the quality and then check the other factors.
