wix professional designers

Your website is one of the most valuable marketing tools you have at your disposal. Not only does it act as a primary source of information, but it helps define your brand and attract new customers.

While you can create a website that’s entirely professional and user-friendly yourself with our drag and drop builder, customizable templates, high-quality images and professional apps, for some, it can be beneficial to outsource this task. This is where Wix professional designers can help. You can hire a Wix-approved freelance web designer on the Wix Marketplace to create your perfect website or even to improve your current one.

Here’s what you need to know before getting started.

When to hire a professional designer

Did you know that research shows it only takes 50 milliseconds for visitors to evaluate the quality and appearance of a website? That means that within the blink of an eye, visitors assess your brand, your business, and decide whether or not to stay or leave your site. This can be a bit daunting, which is why you may decide to hire a professional to do the heavy lifting and create a website for you.

Here are some other key reasons why.

You don’t have the time to do it yourself

Hiring a professional designer to help you in making a website ensures that you’ll have a well-branded, user-friendly website up and running in a designated amount of time. It’s essentially one less task you need to take care of, allowing you to focus on other projects.

You want to take your website to the next level

If your business is growing or you are in the process of rebranding, you may want to consider a revamp of your website. A stylish, user-friendly site with high quality images and effects is vital for converting new clients. By hiring a web designer, you can improve your brand’s online presence by upgrading and redesigning your website’s layout and implementing the most updated features.

You’re having trouble bringing your vision to life

A professional designer can take your ideas and turn them into a functioning site. Together, you can discuss the elements of your branding and what it is you’re looking for. Then, they can incorporate the most up-to-date web design trends to bring your dream website to fruition.

How a professional designer can help grow your business

Investing in a professional designer can be highly advantageous for gaining and retaining customers. The following are the primary reasons why it may be worth your while.

A unique website sets you apart

Whether you decide to base your web design on an existing template or start it from scratch, a professional web designer will know exactly how to make it stand out. A creative, one-of-a-kind site with high quality effects and imagery is simply more enticing. It aids in brand appeal and allows your business to stand out from competitors, increasing traffic and bringing in new customers.

Better SEO optimization

Ranking on search engines like Google is imperative for people to find you. Wix professional designers have in-depth knowledge of Wix website builders and how to implement both front and back end SEO strategies that help your website rank when people search for related terms. A web designer can also apply local SEO that ensures your website is listed when someone searches for relevant keywords in your area.

Up-to-date advancements in web design

Web design is an ever evolving field. Designers remain on top of visual trends and technological advances to ensure the sites they create are as current and innovative as possible. When you hire a professional, your website will be scalable to help grow your business while remaining at peak performance.

A flawless user experience

One of the primary reasons to hire a web designer is to ensure your website provides a seamless user experience, a vital component of a well-functioning website. UX design not only helps visitors navigate, but it fulfills their needs by ensuring they find what they are looking for on your site. This is a major piece of building brand loyalty.
