Before Hiring a Web Company ask Questions

Here are a few Questions to Ask Before Hiring a Web Company.

If you want to be sure you get a professional web developer who will support your website in a professional and timely manner.  Here are our answers to some of the most important questions you should present to the Web company before you choose hiring.  You want to make sure the company is reputable, honest, reliable, competent, experienced, licensed, reasonably priced, and is the right fit for you and your company's needs.

Questions you should definitely ask your Web Designers.

Ask your Web Designer questions

  1. What is your experience in Web Design?
    We have over 25 years of experience in not only web design but Computer Programming, Systems Analyst, Computer Consultanting, Computer Training, Graphic Design & Video Editing, Technical Support, Hardware / Networking, Computer Repair, Databases, 
    Software Applications, and Op
    erating Systems.  See Company Owners Resume Here.
     

  2. Can you provide examples of websites you have designed in the past?
    Yes we have plenty of published successful online websites.  View our work here
     

  3. What is your design process like and How do you ensure the website meets our specific needs and goals?
    We go through a series of meetings and we fill out a complete questionnaire about your company, requirements, ideas, and desires.  Then we study and research your subject matter and come up with a website prototype for your review. View our questionnaire process here.
     

  4. Can you provide references or client testimonials for your previous work?
    Yes, we have real references on this website and have been permitted to use their very own words that they have spoken or emailed to us.  Please see our real reviews here and check out our work and call around and you will see what type of business we are and how seriously we take our company and its reputation.  Computer Tutor Services has been in business over 25 years and we have plenty of experience along the way.
     

  5. What is your timeline for completing the project and how do you handle project delays or changes in requirements?
    Each project is different and has different levels of complication, so this question is somewhat hard to answer.  However, we can get websites up as fast as one day but it would not be a complete website but a good starter point.  However, we do like to take at least a month to come up with a very decent informational website that will meet most of your needs.  In time with our monthly maintenance plan, it gets better and better and sharper and sharper as we go along and then it really ends up reflecting what you and your company represent.
     

  6. What is your pricing structure? Are there any additional costs we should be aware of?
    We are very reasonably priced and the additional costs would be your Web Host, Domain Name, and our Monthly Maintenance Fee.  See more detailed information on our prices here.
     

  7. Do you offer maintenance and support services after the website is launched?
    Yes, we charge a small monthly maintenance fee and make your updates every month with the person we are assigned to on the website contract.  They send in your change requests and we have a 3-day turnaround time and it usually gets done the same day unless it requires extensive programming and massive updates.  After updates are completed a follow-up email is sent to inform the requester.
     

  8. Will the website be mobile-responsive and optimized for search engines (SEO)?
    YES, and we introduce and index it with Google Search Engine at no extra cost.
     

  9. How do you handle revisions or updates to the website after it goes live?
    We at Computer Tutor Services do all your updates for you unless there is an assigned collaborator on the Website contract who wishes to make certain changes but with limited access to those needs only.  To protect your website from errors we wish to make all the changes for you unless a special agreement is assigned on our website contract.
     

  10. What outside programs do you recommend?
    There are plenty out there and we work with those listed below, but not limited to:
    YouTube, Cloud Storage Services, Facebook, Google Services, Cognito Forms, Instagram, Linked In, Twitter, Survey Forms, Constant Contact, Online Calendars, Wix Webhosting, POS type outside Shopping Carts, and Merchant Accounts like Paypal, Square, etc...
     

    1. How do you approach security measures for websites you design?
      Our Secure Web Server handles most of it.  If there is someone you wish not to be a member of your website you can request for them to be removed.  We Computer Tutor Services representatives do all updates for you monthly and allow limited access to assigned collaborators only who are listed on the website contract.

In conclusion, having a professional website with the right developer can make an enormous difference in developing your website and keeping it up-to-date online.  Asking these types of questions can help you assess the capabilities, reliability, and compatibility of a good web design company before making such an important decision.  Are you Ready?  Just call us directly at (727) 323-4677.  We are real people who prefer to speak with you directly.
