That’s a really good question, Why would you hire a web development company?

I mean you can build a WordPress site fairly easy with just a theme and some plugins and there’s a wide variety of them out there, if you don’t know how to do something there are also thousands if not millions of tutorials on the web to guide you through.

Plus most themes depending on where you purchase them from,  you get a limited amount of support so you can just ask the developer of the theme for certain things to do with the theme. But there will come a point where the developer may turn around and say “Its not part of the theme” and as a result won’t add the feature or make the adjustment, which can be frustrating at times when you believe its only a small thing and could be done fairly easily.

So what are your options?

Well you can go to a freelance site and pay an Individual to do the selected tasks for you and don’t get me wrong the rates some of these freelancers offer can be really appealing to someone on a tight budget, but what about aftercare, what about warranty or out of hours support, could you count on that one freelancer that built your plugin a year ago to still be there when you want some help or a new feature adding?

Other option would be to attempt to do it yourself, but if you don’t know what you’re doing then you could cause more problems for yourself.

So Why would you hire a web development company?

Before anything is done we discuss the work:

  1. Get a thorough brief from yourself with the exact requirements you need.
  2. Discuss what’s possible within the means of your budget and current site infrastructure
  3. Plan a timeframe of when work should be commenced as thus not to conflict with any advertisements or marketing campaigns.

Once thats been clarified, then work begins.

We’ll ask for site access information, once in we run a free site status report which let you know any updates, errors or problems currently on your site and the option to rectify them.

Then an optional full back up of your site is performed and sent to you for safe keeping, that way if anything goes wrong the backup can be used. An optional backup can also be done after work has been completed.

Throughout the time work is performed on your site you will be regularly updated with what’s happened as well as a chance to voice any problems or extra things you wish to add.
