How to choose the right web developer for your business.

What is web development?

The term 'web development' relates to the technical and structural aspects of a website's functionality. It is the 'web developer' that makes a 'web design' work in practical terms.

Web Development includes such elements as domain management, sitemap architecture, programming, specialist coding and security procedures. 

Web development is a highly specialised field that includes several disciplines such as web programming, information systems and architecture, internet application as well as an understanding of usability and online marketing.

A successful and highly converting website needs to 'look good' (with a visually appealing web design) and 'work well' (with integrated web development systems).

Your Business and Web Development

Every successful website needs to be 'found online'.

Professional web development boosts search performance. A well developed website is built to be search engine friendly. SEO (or search engine optimisation) refers to the techniques designed to achieve search rankings for targeted keywords.

It is estimated that more than 76% of all purchase decisions are made online.

A well developed website that is highly optimised for keywords is essential for businesses today. To remain competitive, every business should identify their target market. Today that target market is found increasingly online. A well branded, user friendly and professionally developed website will boost profitability.

Audiences are increasingly sophisticated and well informed. 

Every website should be designed to meet the requirements of your target market. A professional web development company will take time to understand the specific needs of your prospects and clients. Features and functionalities best suited to conversion and service will be carefully implemented into your website. Every website should be designed and developed for success.

Choosing the Right Web Developer

Quality web development is always in demand. Web development is a high growth industry. 

A customised website should deliver significant ROI. Online marketing and increased online visibility is a must for every business. A marketing plan that includes internet promotion, a social media strategy, eCommerce, email newsletters and SEO will drive traffic and increase profitability.

A quality website is the foundation of a successful internet marketing campaign. 

Take care to ensure your web developer is experienced and professionally qualified. 'Cheap' or 'Budget' websites can be false economy. Take time to choose a web developer with an extensive portfolio and client list who can demonstrate proven results. Ask for testimonials. Getting the right website is the best investment your business can make.
