All reputable web design and development company must terms and conditions, which you must pay attention to, in addition to being license or registered. It is your duty to ask for evidence of being license or registered with the appropriate body, so you must not be afraid to ask any question from them.
4. Copyright Factor
Different web development industry had different methods of doing things. A reputable web development industry must have copywriter as part of their setup. Some company will ask you to provide the content by yourself because they don’’t write content. Even if you have written and develop the content by yourself, you must have it in mind that a reputable web development industry must have copywriter as part of their setup.
Take, for instance, at MEMESCO SOLUTIONS, we have department of copywriters who write and develop content for our numerous client. If you have develop your content, we are happy to use it, but for those who don’’t have the time to write their cont, our copywriters are more than ready to write for them at no addition cost.
If you’’ve not develop content for your website already, ask them if they have a team of copywriter, if they say no, then you can make decision whether to continue with them or not. This is simply because, some web development company just go online and copy content from other website and put it on your website without telling you. This is very risky because you will be caught by google, and your website will be eventually blackmail for copyright infringement. Copyright factor is as important as other factors.
5. The Update Factor?
Who will be updating the site? What if you want to update it by yourself, will there be provision for that? How much do they charge for update? These are some of the many questions that need to be asked before committing yourself to them, so that you will not be caught unaware. I will advise you to have both just as we do at MEMESCO SOLUTIONS for all our clients all over the world.
6. Financial Terms.
You need to ask their for financial terms and fees structure, you must ensure that all the financial terms are well spelled out. For some web development company, they work on project basis while some works on hourly basis. If they work on hourly basis, how much do they charge per hour, most web development industry will charge between $50 - $150 per hour.
Ask the companies to explain their fee structure and be sure to get an estimated project cost. Make sure that things are spelled out what's going to be provided at what cost. You don't want any surprises. Some companies work on a project basis, others work on an hourly basis. What's the average hourly rate a reputable web company should charge? Great question, but a tough one to answer. Numbers are all over the board, but normally, you'll find companies charging between $50 - $150 per hour.
Take as illustration, at MEMESCO SOLUTIONS, we offer flexible services to all our clients all over the world. During negotiation, we do ask our clients for their preference, whether hourly basis, or project basis, with all financial terms and conditions clearly spelled out with 30-days money back guarantee.
Having considered all the above factors, if you are not satisfied with the company, then it is time to move on.
