Have you been let down by your web designer?

Isn’t it funny how things come in threes.

In the last day and a half I have had three separate conversations with business owners who have been let down by their web design company. From failing to deliver promised work,  shoddy non functioning web elements, to hosting a site with a company who seems to have no concept of up-time guarantee.

It appears these web design companies do not value their clients, a strategy I find hard to comprehend.

Its not the first and certainly not the last time, I’ve heard stories like these. Over the years I have collected quite a few, for example

  • My web designer takes too long updating my site with the new content I send.
  • My emails and phone calls are never returned
  • Something is broken on my site and I need it fixed now
  • Google has black-listed my site and I am getting a “malicious” warning
  • I have paid a web designer to develop a web site and they have disappeared off the face of the earth
  • My web site is always down and I have just discovered my web designer is hosting it on a server in his basement
  • My web site looks different when viewed on a MAC or a PC, help!
  • I am getting bombarded by spam from my web site

There are a lot of  “cow boy companies” out there

The Chicago web designer is refreshed.

There is nothing like a good vacation to refresh the soul and a fabulous week in the UK has done the trick for me.  I’d written a couple of blog posts before I left and scheduled their publish while I was away, busy NOT checking my email… not even once. That is a liberating experience I want to repeat …and soon!

I am back on US soil now busy already and following up on a nice bundle of leads generated by some good old fashioned organic Google ranking for my Chicago web design company.

Here is a little photo montage of my trip.
