12 Common Mistakes
A WEB DEVELOPMENT AGENCY
Jul. 12, 21
Setting boundaries and rules is an important thing to do. Just imagine arguing for an hour about where to place a simple button.
Not using contracts
The benefit of contracts does not lie just in knowing what to expect and what should be delivered, it also has a protective purpose.
Unsystematic or ineffective design
It is perhaps one of the worst scenarios when the overall appearance of the platform gives a chaotic impression.
Being too general
Working with a web development agency that does not adapt to a client’s specific needs might be a risky position to be in.
Slow response to changes
A fast response to changes that emerge along the way is one of the characteristic traits of a powerful web development agency.
Fixed prices and not estimations
Fearing a bad response from you, many agencies will be tempted to provide you with a fixed cost instead of an estimation.
The website is not mobile compatible
More than half of internet users come from mobile devices. So when you hire a web development agency, make sure they work with mobile-first.
Forgetting about their own website
Working on several projects at once, often takes away the time and resources needed for updating our own platforms.
Poor SEO implementation
Technical SEO is oftentimes left at the end of the process, when in reality, it should be implemented from the early stages.
Jumping straight into work.
Understanding the end-users is crucial in the beginning, as they are the people who will be using the website.
Development trumps design
Web design and web development go hand in hand and there has to be a balance between them.
Shifting focus on themselves
Some agencies tend to put too much emphasis on their experience and too little on your needs and requirements.
