About Web Design Houston
Hello, My name is Sam Shah and I founded Simple Web Design Houston (Netlyte LLC) in 2007. I was building websites even before 2007 during my education at Dulles High School in Houston. They had a class there "Intro To HTML" or something close and one of things the teacher did was get me and everyone else introduced to HTML (the core of website development) and that's how it all started back in 1998.
I then went on to get my Computer Science Information Systems degree from University of Houston, graduating in 2005 with honors. Since that time I've worked at several IT jobs but during my off time I still did website design.
Luckily one day I stumbled upon a non-profit that needed a webmaster and I decided to help them build a website, free of charge. After their website was done - one of their board members referred me to what can be considered my first client, one of the fastest growing companies in Houston a few years ago. The rest as they say is history.
In 2015 Simple Houston web design and our group of web designers, based in Houston, will celebrate over 8 years of providing high quality web design services for businesses, entrepreneurs, non-profits. Along with website design we also now provide logo design, brochure design, any type of design that you may need. We also now provide online marketing using SEO / Search Engine Optimization, Video development and advanced online systems (credit card processing, apis, etx).
You've found an inexpensive Houston web designer and have finally launched your first business website. You then launched a huge marketing campaign to drive customers to it, only to find that as soon as lots of them visit, your site goes down. You call your designer in panic, and he says "It must be your hosting company" or "Everything seems fine on my end". And soon you'll find yourself trapped in that usual finger pointing nightmare. You are left with nothing but lost opportunities and a semi-working site. So what are the mistakes you should avoid when choosing a web designer? Let's have a look at few of them.
Does Your Web designer Have Good References
You might see glowing testimonials and reviews on the web designer's work on their site, but are they willing to provide you their contact details. Any website can list "testimonials" that may or may not be actual customer testimonials. If they have BBB or Yelp listing, check that. Insist on speaking to few past customers as they can give you honest assessment of the company's work.
Will your website work on mobile devices?
You've spent a huge amount on your new site only to discover that when you view it on your tablet or phone it only looks like a tiny version of your site. Your designer then tells you that you should now probably invest in App for tablets and mobile phones. That's waste of money. For the past two years, top web designers are building "responsive" websites, which work on all type of devices by automatically adjusting themselves in the most usable way. Therefore, you should insist on a responsive website that also works on mobile devices seamlessly.
Will your site have a custom web design or look like many others from that designer?
You launch you new "custom" site only to find that it looks similar to the one your web designer recently launched. And with the recent Google algorithm update its even more important now then ever to have a responsive, mobile friendly website. Looking over his past work, you'll see that your new website looks like many other websites they built. One of the purposes of having a site is to be able to set your business apart from competition and have your business get noticed. If your web designer is stuck in the rut by using one or more web designs constantly as his starting point for most of his projects, you may not get the results you are interested in. Insist on a designer who can provide you a fresh design that sets your business apart. If you want to avoid such mistakes then go with a firm, like Simple Houston Web Design, that has over 8 years of real world experience.
