When an individual or company decides to make the decision to develop a new website or even upgrade an existing website it is important to find a Web Developer that has the experience in building the kind of website you need. A Web Developer is the person you are entrusting your website to that will make a Design come to life, organize your Content, or even create the tools to make your e-commerce work, among other things.
There are lots of free services out there that will let you create a website but can limit what you may have envisioned. A Web Developer will help build those custom items that may not be available out of the box and set your website apart from everyone else.
When looking for a Developer there are a few key things to look for when selecting a freelancer or company.
1. Find a web developer that has experience with your kind of site; are you developing an HTML site, do you use java-script or Ruby? All Developers are not created equal and specialize in certain areas of the programming and have different skill sets.
2. Is the developer or company experienced in Digital Marketing or SEO?
3. Will the Developer be around if you have a problem with your website?
Many companies looking for a website, do not really know what they are looking for, so they tend to shop on price, which can be disastrous. Typically an experienced developer can build a website in a fraction of the time as someone that is inexperienced. The code is typically cleaner and more extendable to boot. This means, your website will perform better, and maintaining it will be less expensive in the long run.
Building a website the right way, involves planning for organization, marketing strategy, and working with the vision for your business. There are plenty of developers that know code, but not so many that know what it will take to make an impact in your market. Development is only one piece of the formula for building a successful website.
