18 Web Designers to Watch in 2018

by in Creativity , Growth , Marketing , Writing

Want to avoid the mistake most online business owners make when they create a new website?

I call it the dreaded launch and pray method. Meaning you build a website and pray your dream clients will find you.

Instead, you can infuse each page with strategies. So that every time you have a new or returning visitor you’ll drive them to take high-speed action.

Start by focusing on the MIP’s (most important pages). Each one is critical to getting the most opt-ins or sales conversions.

It consists of four pages: Home, About, Services and Lead Magnet. 

Each page is built to be irresistible and maximizes your reader’s attention. Remember, you’re competing with all the other tabs they have open so you want them to jump on the opportunities you’re presenting.

Clear, compelling copy paired with strong visuals designed to keep and hold their attention work best when they’re built on a solid strategic foundation.

I helped a client whose #1 strategic goal was to build her email list. Her lead magnet was a quiz for artists.

The results? As soon as she hit publish on her web copy for her MIP’s sign-ups started flooding her inbox. 

Within 24 hours her list grew by 153 subscribers. 

Shortly after that, she had 1,574 new subscribers, which for her, means money in the bank.

Most importantly she confidently sends people to her website and she’s easily capturing emails with a unique, memorable lead magnet. 

Web design isn’t everyone’s cup of tea and I’ll be the first one to admit that it’s not my specialty. Today, I have something for you that will help get the ball rolling so you can finally move your new website off of your to-do list and get it live!

Below you’ll find a list of website designers to choose from that will help you get your website functioning and looking beautiful.


In addition to this list of talented designers, I also have a free gift for you, “Get Your Content Live Checklist,” a free download that will not only help you with the process of working with a designer but also go live with your copy at lightning speed. Click on the image and opt-in to receive the checklist directly to your email.



I know that getting your content live as soon as possible is very important to you. So one of the biggest things you can do is to build a strong relationship with your designer. In my blog post, “Three Mistakes to Avoid When Hiring Your Graphic Designer,” I suggested some steps you can take to make the most of your relationship with your designer.

As promised here is a list of top designers and developers that I personally recommend (in no particular order). I went on a world-wide interwebs tour to hand select the very best talent I could find from Australia to France and all over the United States. I wanted you to feel supported no matter where you are located.
