How to choose a developer for your small business website

I get asked to do website estimates a lot, and sometimes, it’s downright heartbreaking to hear from people who are struggling with how to choose a developer for their website.
Whether they’re aspiring entrepreneurs or small business owners, I get contacted all the time by people who feel they were ripped off by their previous webmaster and are very reluctant to hire someone new for fear of the same thing happening again.

Some of these people have decided to do all the work themselves, and they’re struggling terribly trying to learn a whole new profession. Then, they end up calling me out of sheer frustration, as nothing is working, and things are worse off than before.

One time I was having a conversation with someone on a completely unrelated topic, and he asked me what I did. When I responded, he blurted out, “I hate web developers.”

I cringed.

But I didn’t take too much offence to this, as no matter what you do for a living, there are always going to be people in your industry who are really great at what they do, some who just do enough to get by, some who only think they know what they’re doing, and still, others who are intentionally ripping people off!

Sadly, the web development industry is certainly no different.

So, if you’re unhappy with your current web developer, and you want to learn more about how to hire someone to build a website, then you should definitely keep reading.

In this article, I’m going to explore several different options you may want to consider, discuss the benefits and drawbacks of each option, and provide some valuable tips that will help you find the perfect complement to your team.
