Tips for Choosing the Right Website Development Company

With the help of the right website development company, you will be able to create a website that creates ripples in the internet world. However, it is not that your website development company will land in your lap, on a silver platter. You have to conduct some of your own research to choose the right company that caters to the needs of your business or company.

Go through the portfolio of the website development company
Experience is an important factor to take into consideration when choosing anyone’s services. Looking at the company’s portfolio is the best way for you to find out how good a website development company is. Look for the types of projects the company has done, the number of projects completed so far and if the company has served big or small clients. You will be able to decide whether to do business with the website development company or not, by taking a look at its portfolio. If you want to outsource projects, find out if the company is experienced in outsourcing matters. This is important, to ensure that your work does not reach wrong hands. Check to see if the website development company has a well defined web development process it follows. If the company has no clear cut process that it follows, you find that your project will not be successful. In addition to this, you have to go through the information security policy of the website development company.

Sign an agreement ensuring safety of all your information
This is to ensure that whatever information you provide to the website development company lies and remains in safe hands. In fact, signing a confidential Non Disclosure Agreement ensures that you have a legal binding with the company where you are sure that all the information you provide them remains safe and secure. Of course, also ensure if the company has the right firewall systems, secured VPN and network and restricted employee access systems. Make sure you ask clients of the website construction company about its reliability, professionalism, credibility in work and work efficiency. This gives an idea of the working capacity of the company. Always work with companies that provide you with a single contact for your website development needs. This is because if you are assigned a second person for your project, you just have to explain everything, all over again.

Have an agreement stating the completion date of the project
Once you have got everything clear, and have clearly defined your needs and prerequisites, it is important for you to ensure that you have an agreement stating the completion date of the project. This is to ensure that your website is produced as you want it, whenever you want it. Make sure all doubts are cleared, and that the website development company has understood what you want them to do. Once this is all done, you can rest assured that your website will soon be ready for you to use.

Web 2.0. The Social Media Revolution – Make Your Voice Heard Above the Crowd

In the beginning of the internet, their was a massive divide between the web developers, and the end users.

It seemed that post the most basic information on the internet required degrees in computer science, and months of frustrating “hit and miss” attempts to get your message formatted in a way that was even barely user friendly.

Bright yellow web pages with lime green text, there were plenty of these about. Small graphic images that took minutes to download, and even longer to upload in the first place.

Lost connections, error messages and virus infestations were everywhere.

I’m not talking fifty years ago either, just ten or twelve.

The internet is a very different place now. Although WEB 2.0 represents nothing officially, it is recognised as the ground shift in the way end users can now actively participate on the web. Add to the discussions and even the media that is accessible by others on the internet.

Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and MySpace a the leaders of a huge following pack of user friendly WEB 2.0 sites that not only allow user participation, but owe their very existence to the products that we, the end user decide to upload and participate in.

With any innovation on a scale this enormous comes the possibility to leverage it for profit. These sites attract the most enormous numbers of visitors. The potential to marketing either products or ideas on these sites is clear to all.

The key for an internet marketer is first to understand the function of these sites. Join each site in turn, fill in complete user “profiles” for yourself.

Next, you need to make friends with people with a similar interest to yourself. Join existing groups within your chosen niche, if none exist form your own.

Finally, provide evidence of your ability. Answer questions, provide free help and information. Be an asset. If the opportunity arises you may be able to link to your own personal sites or web holdings.

Finding ethical and transparent ways to use WEB 2.0 sites to attract more internet traffic to your own sites is a task that is well worth undertaking.

The internet is a more open and user friendly experience. Having your say, learning from others, and getting a clear message across to others who would benefit from it is now easier than ever. Thanks to WEB 2.0
