Changing your website part way through programming

Posted on September 6, 2019 at 9:20 am

If you are a business owner then you may decide that you need a website or you may already have one but want to make some big changes to it. Most web design companies will start off by taking a brief from you. From this they can usually provide a cost for the design and build of the site. If this cost is agreed, usually the next stage is to crate visuals. These are usually flat graphics that can either be printed or displayed on a computer which will show the layout of the site. You may be able to chose from a selection of designs or adapt one to ensure it fits with what you want. Only once this visual has been agreed should programming commence.

Once programming has begun, it is not a good idea to keep making changes. Small changes such as text changes or colours may be ok, but if you want to start changing the structure of the site then you may incur additional costs. This is because much of the programming work that has already been completed may have to be scrapped or drastically changed which will take time. Programmers charge out their time so the longer it takes, the more it will cost. If you are not happy with something in your design point it out prior to programming and if you do need to change it, be prepared to pay.
