If you’re a business in today’s market, you’ve indefinitely thought about getting a website and which company to go with to make it. There are a range of options to choose from, however, it’s important that the company provides an excellent service. They should be able to manipulate innovative web design with subtle rebranding to create a vigorous project that you can call your website.
Here are 6 things to look for in a web development service provider:
- Portfolio – As with this type of work, portfolios are your best friend. Portfolios are how companies express themselves and show off their work. Make sure the work however isn’t plagiarised as with all good things, there is always a complete opposite.
- Experienced web developers – Make sure the company you are working with have a team of exceptional workers. Ask them for any previous projects they have worked on. This will show the skills they possess and what they are best at. Experienced developers have worked on many high-quality products which they should be able to present upon request.
- Timings – As with any commissioned piece of work, there will be a time range put in place, including a deadline. It’s important that the developers are able to mange the project efficiently. This is so that the client is able to receive their website on time, without any defects and glitches. The developers should also be able to make changes later on into the development stage without being too disruptive. The project manager should be able to lay out a successful plan to you that they will be able to follow and act on accordingly.
- Testimonials – If a company isn’t lying about their accomplishments, you should be able to find testimonials on their website to confirm their hard work was actually beneficial. If you can’t seem to find it on their website, ask them directly if you can get the contact details of a client they have worked with in the past. If they are unable to provide any information, take that as a hint.
- Flexibility – It is essential for the service providers to be able to make changes on the go. If you tell them half way through the project that you would like something to be changed, they shouldn’t turn around and say ‘it’s too late’. If you are paying them to make your website, it should meet your standards and requirements.
- Transparency – Companies shouldn’t have a problem with being open and honest when communicating with the client. It’s undoubted that the client has every right to be able to monitor the progress that the web developers are making, in the scenario that you may want to make a suggestion or an improvement.
If the company you were thinking of going with doesn’t match all of the above criteria, think again. These are just the barebones of what you as a client should be entitled to.
