About Website Designers List
Well, where do we begin?
The year was 2005. People in need of website design, development and related services were desperate for a simple, elegant, well-organized way to find a website designer, web developer or website design company in certain geographic areas or within a particular specialty field. Meanwhile, across the vast expanse of the Internet, website design companies were just aching to make contact with these people.
Website designers and web developers reached out across miles of fiber, frantically grasping at entrepreneurs, executives, bloggers and others who would never see their interest. It was a story of unrequited love - and we can't stand to see love unrequited. So, being the romantics we are, we decided to do something about it.
The team that founded Website Designers List focused on the two key demographics:
- Website Designers (designers, developers and the companies they work for)
- Customers (those in need of website design and development services)
We wanted to know what each group wanted, what they craved, what they could not do without (and what they could do without. We spent quite a bit of time (and money - ouch!) putting together extremely fancy surveys designed to give us objective, relevant and actionable information that we could use to put together the best resource for finding a website designer on the planet.
We sent out and received back two rounds of questionnaires about exactly what each group would like to find in a website such as this one. The feedback we received was quite interesting and provided a great fountain of "how to build it" information. While some of the more clever respondents were eager to tell us where to stick our surveys (karma, man, karma!), most managed to provide honest, serious and priceless guidance and feedback (thanks, you rock!).
We reviewed pages upon pages of requests, suggestions, concerns, optimization tips, pricing preferences, and of course complaints about other such websites and services that were not doing much for their money. We then went to work on putting together the most comprehensive website designer resource on the web.
Today, after close to a decade online, Website Designers Lists continues to lead the charge for web designers, developers and freelancers everywhere. We are their advocate and want to see them grow and succeed.
