Confused whom to hire for your Website Development? Freelancer or Agency
Before you start your search for a web developer, it is important that you understand the basic difference between Freelancer & Agency.
Before starting this you must be clear about your website requirements and what kind of website you need so that you can convey your points clearly to the developer whether it is firm or a freelancer.
Now one thing we will make clear that there is no type or style of right or wrong Web Developer. It all depends on your website requirement and factors that are required, including skills, techniques or capabilities which your business require to reach your desires & budget.
We will just in short compare the web developers so that you can easily choose the right one.
We will start with a question – Would you hire a person to build your house alone, from start to end? No!
I hope your answer matches with this. If not, then you are great!
Building an empire by alone is not an easy task; it' s a team effort that brings the name "Empire". Just like that building your website requires a team of expertise just one single person can't do it all alone.
A good website will actually call great, when it achieves your desired business goals, it's not one man work. For this we need a great professional team with their professional skills & experience capability, which will lead to the way of success & achievement.
For successful business websites a business minded person is always needed, who leads your project in the right direction to complete the work in given time. The team of web developers, web designers, copy writer, coders, programmer for effective designs & convert designs into a functional website. Likewise website ranking or driving traffic is the job of SEO/SEM/SMM experts. Similar to build a world class home, building a world class website will require a dozen of professionals that are specialists in their skills. As it is feasible that an individual can perform all work as a multitasked but the time will be varied with the team. As a professional devotes their time to specialize in one skill, and when they are into the team they perform more effectively and efficiently.
Your business website could be as strong as its weakest point where the world is on the web and if you are not, then you must be following outdated strategy for your business. If you hire a freelancer to complete your entire project, there could be possibilities that they will outsource some of the tasks/work. If you focus strictly on cost-effective dealings and cut corners on talent and resources, the unfavorable consequence will fall on your shoulders.
But if suppose you hire a freelancer for your website development, but
don't do that blindly by sacrificing your desired goal for your website. Ensure all the details and other skills, abilities & management, which that individual can handle, the pressure of your requirements. Where as a Web Service Firm is capable to handle all pressure and fulfill all requirements with proper communication and the best level of achievements & success. No doubt giving work to the agency / firm could be a little bit expensive but will you sacrifice your needs and goals which you needed from your website? By hiring an agency, you hire a team of managed & professionals who will definitely take out the best outcome at the end and it will be worth.
Bottom line :– Many professional people have the above skills and abilities, but cannot build an effective website as a team of managed and professional of a firm can do.
