WHAT IS A FREELANCE WEB DESIGNER?
You've heard the notion, and wondered what is a freelance web designer and what can he do for you. So you surfed the Web and "landed" on Garin.ro. Let us begin... First thing first: on the web design and SEO market there are two main players: the big agencies (from which you can expect inflated prices when talking website creation and web optimization for Google) and a second category - the freelance web designers.
Basically, every freelance designer has decided to leave a bigger corporation and offer his clients better web services. To me, the prices set by web design agencies seemed unreasonable, so I put myself in the client's shoes and tried to deliver the same quality service at dramatically lowered costs. After all, why should you, from you hard-earned cash, pay for the secretary or the heating and electricity bills?
The answer to the above question is fairly simple: a freelance web designer is a professional who went against the grain and is offering high quality services at very enticing prices. A successful designer has many skills and fills many roles: web designer, web developer, marketing director, PR expert, technical advisor and last but not least employee, all at the same time!
Why is a Freelance Web Designer better than an agency?
I'll be honest with you. Many clients contact me because a) they've been disappointed by the tiresome experience they've had with web design agencies b) they're received a price list well over their budget c) they consequently look for a straightforward experience at affordable prices for even us mere mortals.
More and more individuals and businesses realize that hiring a web design agency is a slow, expensive and impersonal process. Freelance web designers, on the other hand, are capable of providing a very personal experience that a corporation can not. Let me ask you something: how often do you end up meeting the CEO of a corporation you are endorsing by buying their products? To a freelance web designer, every single customer is the most important, not just a sales figure.
What I don't do
I DON'T sacrifice quality
I DON'T promise the unattainable
I WON'T sell you a service you don't need
I WON'T disappear in the woods after finishing your website
Low prices, great quality
I don't pay salaries, nor do I pay rents in the city centre. This enables me to offer a high quality service you otherwise wouldn't afford, at a fraction of what a web design agency would ask for
I will listen to your ideas and will advise you on what is better for you, not for me. I will present you the best options to save money
I am a trustworthy man, punctual and easygoing
The aces up my sleeve are
Short "delivery" time
A web design agency often involves third parties, which means delays and postponements. I am 100% self-reliant, so I don't pose this problem. Plus, I DON'T WORK ONLY FROM 9 TO 5
The one answering the phone will always be me, not a secretary or somebody you haven't spoken to before
I strive to make your website look great and be up there in the SERPs (Search Engine Results Pages)
WHAT WEB SERVICES AM I OFFERING?
It is my core belief that your website should have personality and make your visitor react in some way. That is why I am offering you a wide array of services for total satisfaction. We're talking website design, which also involves graphic design (the visual component of the website, which attracts the public and keeps it on site) but also web development (web standards compatibility, working on all major web browsers, responsive design etc.). But the eye candy isn't everything - your website must be known and visible in the Search Engines' rankings, particularly Google's. I am also a SEO expert and I will be providing you with many techniques to climb up the ladder of Search Engines, like Google, Bing and Yahoo. Last but not least, I offer free website maintenance, so you can rest assured - at garin.ro it's all inclusive!
And because we live in the age of Facebook and social media, I've saved you the icing on the cake: promotion and marketing through dedicated social media plugins, so you can stay connected and interact with clients and business partners via Facebook or Yahoo Messenger, right from your website!
Drawing a line, these are the web services on my offer:
Beautiful design to increase traffic and sales
Compatibility with all major browsers
Keep you connected with your visitors through Facebook, Twitter etc
HOW I WORK?
Fast and good. I take pride in simplicity, yet I am complex. My web design is elegant, attractive, yet functional and intuitive, because a website, IMHO, has to be user friendly. I am flexible and don't mind if you have a special request or you woke me up (I hope you won't do it, though :) ). I'm a fan of minimalism, which doesn't mean a website should be bare bone - just that it doesn't have to be a maze. Your website is my bread, therefore our relationship will be close, direct and honest from day one. I hope we'll be friends and we'll continue working together in the future. Your satisfaction is my priority. That being said, feel right at home on garin.ro, browse my portfolio and leave me a message!
