You've made the decision to make your web presence shine, and have hired a web developer to make you a beautiful new website. Great! Having an experienced web development company build a website for you can be a cooperative, rewarding experience. Or it can also be a grueling struggle with lackluster results, IF you don't follow this one important rule:
There is nothing more important than trusting the experts you hired to be, well, experts. They want nothing more than for you to have a beautiful website that wows your visitors, but this can only be accomplished through working together and having faith that they know what they are talking about.
I often see people excited to start the process of building their brand new website, until it comes time to think about the nitty-gritty details. It is easy to overlook things like best practices for navigation and an intuitive end-user experience. As much as you love the that pop-up of “relaxed industry professional” as way to greet users to the site, we promise that your users do not love it nearly as much.
