Working with your web developer

Posted on December 24, 2016 at 11:39 pm

When having a website created or even when you have an existing one, it is vital that you work closely with your web developer in order to get the best out of your site.

A web developer will program all the pages to look and function the way they should and often issues arise when the developer and the customer do not communicate properly. It may be that the customer knows exactly want they want on the site but does not convey this correctly to the developer.

When taking through a new website build or updates it is often a good idea to draw a flow chart or sitemap and diagrams of how it should look and what should happen when elements are clicked on etc. This can pick up any problems before the programming starts. If the customer has not asked for a function and later on wants to add it in then it may be that the programmer has to re do a lot of the work they have already done and therefore will need to charge for this. When working with a developer communicate with them by also listen to their suggestions as after all, they are the experts.
