Getting the best website designers in Lagos can be very time-consuming because you have to sift through numerous web design companies to make the right decision.
Because hiring a cheap website designer means you will probably get a bad website to represent your business.
I fell victim to this before. Back In 2013, My aunt asked me to help her get a website designer in Lagos.
As a guru, lol, I typed “web design company near me” on Google, and voila, I got hit by many search results and plenty 5-star reviews from their previous clients (Are they even real?).
To cut this short story even shorter, I hired one from the list after reading some of the reviews.
The result was that I lost my aunt's money and wasted a lot of time doing all sort of revisions on the pitiful site.
A Bad Experience
The experience was terrible, and with no extra money to hire someone else, I took it upon myself to design the website myself.
Firstly, I learned Joomla, then migrated to WordPress because of the excellent interface and ease of use.
After working on the project for more than a week (including sleepless nights), I finally presented the website to my aunt, and she loved it!
You've maybe felt that happy tingle in your heart before. To me, nothing beats seeing your creation put a smile on someone's face.
I felt that happy tingle, and my confidence was through the roof.
That same month, I started my website design company, which I named; JIMOHWebDesign, a poor name, I know. lol
Well, JIMOHWebDesign is now a full-fledged digital marketing company in Nigeria called Tech O'Clock.
You are right; you are reading this on my blog.
Back to business
When compiling the list of top website designers in Lagos, I looked at four things;
- The company's portfolio size.
- The interface of their clients' website.
- The average speed of their projects (Speed can boost conversion rate).
- The company's age.
It makes excellent sense to explain why I've decided to use the following criteria in selecting my best website designers in Lagos.
The Company's Portfolio size.
By far, an essential aspect when selecting a website design agency or company in Lagos.
The portfolio tells a user what to expect when hiring a service, both online or offline.
It's social proof of your experience level.
Although, I'd choose a website designer with a small and high-quality portfolio over a company with countless poorly-designed projects.
The Interface of the Clients Website
What is the primary purpose of any website? The answer is simple, to convert traffic into leads or customers.
And the best way to guarantee conversions is to provide an excellent user experience to your potential customers or prospects.
About two years ago, I lost my money to a scammer on OLX, and it was the second time.
Out of frustration, I wanted to try something new, so I checked out another classified ads website.
Would you believe that the website showed me its desktop version on my phone?
It was so hard to navigate on mobile that I had to switch back to OLX.
Which brings me to a valuable life lesson;
Always appreciate what you already have, because most of the time, the happiness we seek, is found in the things we ignore daily. So, be grateful.JIMOH Ibraheem
An excellent user interface (UI) leads to outstanding user experience, and an engaging user experience leads to better conversions.
So when choosing the best website designers in Lagos for your next project, do not forget to look at how easy it is to get the information you need on their website.
The Website Speed
According to research by Google, the average user expects a website to fully-load in the first three seconds.
If you think that number is not achievable, check out the report of our site speed.
Our website load time is 1.1 seconds!
Website speed is also part of user experience because no matter how beautiful your website looks or feels.
If it does not load on time, your prospects would close the tab and move on to the next site.
The Company's Age
It would help if you did not use this as a significant ranking factor because we all know how it is in this modern world, and how technology has levelled the playing field.
Just because you've been doing something longer than someone else does not always mean you are the best in that field.
In my experience, most firms in the tech world find it hard to catch up with the latest changes and mostly stick to what has worked for them in the past, which is a terrible idea.
Imagine, in this modern age, you still use only CSS and HTML to create static websites for clients, and you call yourself a website designer.
When selecting firms in the tech world for your next project, do not choose ancient companies, because you will likely get old project designs.
Let now explore the list of the best website designers in Lagos below.
