A website is a very powerful marketing tool. Customers can research your products, find your store and even order online with a website. But there are a lot of misconceptions about websites and Web developing services. Sometimes Web developing can appear scary, expensive and complicated, but it’s really not. Let’s crackdown on the most common misconceptions about Web Developing.
It’s too Complicated for Our Business
As a web developer, I see this one a lot. Most people think that a website is too complicated for them and is hard to set up. However, most web developing services do everything for you. All you have to do is provide them with a brief and they will do the rest. Some services, will even take care of your website after its finished, like doing updates or submitting new content for you.
It’s Really Expensive
According to the Census business Report, the average price for web developing for a small to medium business was $3,300 AUD in 2016. For some businesses, this can seem like way too much or not worth it. But not all Web Developing Services are like this. Some services have a price cap which means you won’t have to pay as much. There are lots and lots of web design agencies, but make sure you shop around. Try and find services that can offer you a free quote. Although the price may seem high, websites don’t cost much to maintain afterward and have a large Return on Investment (ROI)
I cant find an agency to work with
When trying to find a Web Developing Agency, there can be lots and lots of choices. Here are my top three tips for finding an agency that works for you.
- Are Local – A Local web developing firm can be easier to work with than a large agency. There are quite a lot of local web developing agencies, even in the Countryside.
- Can give you free quotes – Some major development firms use pricing structures that you can choose between. However finding a firm that can give you an accurate quote means that you can get exactly what you want and often pay less. It also allows you to compare many firms between each other.
- Offer to Maintain your site, forever – Some firms offer to maintain and perform content updates to your site even after its finished. This means you won’t have to spend lots of time updating your website.
