Working with a website developer Part 1

We understand that things are uncertain right now, but it is true when we say we should all be proactive when it comes to running a business this year. This holds true to marketing strategies, particularly online to reinvent how to generate larger revenue. We would like to talk about a few things that will make your next project be more streamlined and cost effective.

  1. Communicate: This is very important before starting a project and during. Discussing what your needs and message with your designer/developer. Convey aspects of the project that you just don’t want to see or thing you do want to see. If you know something specific you want then let the designer know so they can incorporate it in the design. 
  2. Invest In An Expert: Let them do exactly what you paid them to do. Give them time to figure out the best solution for your needs. A good designer/developer will be upfront and let you know the time it will take to do the project.  They will communicate with you throughout the process.
  3. Do You Have A Budget: Of course you do, so stick with that and lay it out on the table to the designer/developer. When doing this you give them the information to decide what will be needed for the project if there is a way to cut costs to meet your budget. If something comes up for an extra costs; yes this does happen so please don”t be surprised, they will let you know about it.
  4. Let The Professional Do The Work: Let them give you options of what they know will be the best solution. If you don’t like something then communicate that to them as best you can.
  5. Communicate:  Yes, we have this in twice for a good reason. During the development process you should be consulted and shown the site as it evolves. If at any point you are not happy with the direction, let your developer know before the website is finished. This will not only get your website online quicker it but you will be sure to have a site that not only functions the way you want but is a great reflection of your business, which are the main goals.

At Pro Web Marketing we will communicate throughout the development process and ask for feedback often to ensure you have a website that you are not only proud of but that represents your business online they way you want it to. Call us at 877-577-6932 to discuss your website needs.
