10 Things That Need to Clear With Your Web Development Agencies Before Going To Hire Them..
- Do they have their in-house team or are they going to outsource your project?
When you are going to search for a Web Development Agencies you will find a lot of the companies who are pretending themselves as Web Development Agencies but in actual they are not. They don’t have even an in-house team of Web Designers and Developers. They just pick the project from you and hand over the project to someone else and even they don’t have any control of them. And they will make you stuck in mid of the project.
So always make sure that they should have their Web Design and Development team.
- Do they understand your buyers’ journey?
When you start explaining about your project to them, they will very quickly answer you yes we can do this in the very first meeting. But no one can understand your business in the very first meeting. They should first study your market and your targeted audience then they have to come with a rough plan that what they are going to do and how is going to your buyer’s journey on your website.
Because who understand your buyer’s journey can make only the website which can convert your visitors into your paying customers.
At Maven Technology, we spend most of the time understanding your market, competitions, and your targeted audience behavior and that helps us to make a perfect website for you.
- Are they able to Design and Develop the Website as per your need?
Most of the Agencies just download the theme and make the changes to it and complete your website. And when you ask to put something new in the same design or ask for new functionality as add-ins they are not able to fulfill your customized requirements.
So always ask them are they able to do the customized changes as per your requirement or not.
- Do they provide any warranty?
Please ask them what warranty they can offer to make ensure that they are going to deliver you the successful project. What will happen if they can’t fix the bug or fulfill any particular requirement of yours. And what are they going to do if any problem occurs after delivery?

If possible please ask them to share higher management contact info at least email address so in any case if the staff got changed at least you can chase them easily in any worst scenario.

Sometimes maybe you need to integrate some other applications with your applications. There are lots of e-commerce companies that are using different tools to manage their accounts and in that case, they want to integrate their application with these applications to make tasks easy for them. And here a development company needs to have deep knowledge of their functionalities or how the API and SDKs work.

- Who will provide the content and images for the website?
In most cases, clients provide the images and content for the website. If in any case, they want to manage images and content by Web Development Agencies then that will cost extra money. So in this case where Web Development Agency is going to provide you with the content and images price range should be clear first. So talk with them in detail about your requirements so that they can give you a proper estimate about the prices.
