Before you let your website build begin, consider asking your developer some of these important questions.
At Stratosphere, we love building websites. In fact, we’ve already built over 100 custom sites in 2015! For each web developer on our team, site design is all about telling the world what makes your business so special. In order to do create a site that can do that, we ask you lots of questions. We’ve found, though, that not everyone knows what questions to ask in return.
We want to help you get the most of your new website, so we’re putting the spotlight on these questions that you should always ask your web developer.
- When will my site be finished? You might be surprised by how much goes into building a website, so you might be surprised by how long it can take! We hate disappointing our clients, but all too often we’ve seen people come to us with unrealistic expectations for their site’s timeline. Before you start telling your team you’ll have your new site by X date, ask your developer for a timeline.
- What kind of revisions will I get? Obviously, you want to have say in your site. Ask your developer at which points in the process you’ll be able to see where things are heading. We generally advise a review/revision process when mock ups are finished, then a final review so you can give your input at regular intervals without having to be involved in every minor step.
- What costs are involved? While your web developer has (hopefully!) told you how much your site will cost, it’s important you ask what other expenses will come your way. Things like site hosting and additional features will likely come with associated fees.
The thing about asking these questions is that you need a web developer who will actually give you answers. If you’re looking for a highly responsive, service oriented team to build your new website, we can help!
