Things You Must Know Before Hiring A Web Developer

Are you setting up a new website for your business? Or is the website, your business? There’s hardly any difference, as long as you want considerable traffic there. Being new to the field, you will be facing a lot of issues, and there will be tons of questions striking your head.

Things get even worse when you yourself are not a developer and need to hire one. Although designing and hiring is equally tough, you will have to rely on a completely unknown person if you need to hire a developer for your business.

Signing a contract with the wrong person or firm can cost you significant time and money, and getting in touch with the best ones can be equally tricky.

Before you push the throttles and set power to take-off, make sure you know how much to pull the yoke so that your craft does not stall. In simple terms, keep note of the points mentioned here before you hire a web developer.

Know your unknown partner

A web developer sometimes offers more than just development. It can be; web hosting, digital marketing services, e-commerce solution and countless other services that may sound similar, but are practically different.

Hiring web development services, in a way, is like hiring a contractor to build your home. It must now be crystal clear in your head that you don’t hire just anyone to build your home. Similarly, don’t hand over this project to just any random person.

How does he or she code?

You might be thinking why is it necessary for you to know the way he or she codes. But, in a real sense, it is crucial. It is true that everyone has a different approach to get to the same destination; it must not be entirely unique.

Why so? Because if in the future, you don’t have the same developer for you, it might be difficult for other professionals to understand. It’s like an electrician’s job at your home.

Can he develop a responsive site

A lot of people these days check the websites on their mobile phones instead of a laptop or tabletop computers. The number is significant, and you cannot afford to ignore them.

A responsive site is the one which can be accessed on multiple platforms without any glitch or bug. Every website today needs to be mobile ready. The basic idea behind this concept is that the site responds to the change in dimensions, and thus takes shape, the user desires.

It’s like water being poured from a bottle into a glass. It has the ability to change its shape accordingly. A website developer must be able to prepare a site like that.

Understand the concept of SEO

There’s no need to be a pro in this, but make sure you know the fundamentals of search engine optimization. This is one of the things that boost traffic to your site. The developer must be able to code to your site according to the best SEO practices.

The freelance developer will temporarily be a part of your business. So he must be as concerned about the strategies as you are.

Think of him as a real estate agent who has to sell your house. You’ll definitely choose the one who can list the SEO strategies to present your services or products to the visitors.


Web development is a lot of work, and so is hiring a developer if you do not know any programming languages for that matter. Hiring someone to work on your project can be tricky and tight, but with a few things in mind, it can be done with ease. Never hold yourself from researching before finalizing the one to whom you’re going to hand over the development of your website.

Keeping it simple, I would say I am a simple whacky kid :) whose mind is always open to learn more and more in this expanding universe. Another quality that I possess is- Even when the house is on fire, I try to keep a cool head. I have the right mix of education, creativity, organizational skills and motivation to become a competent professional. I prefer being involved in work rather than just watch it happening.

    Before hiring top web developers one should read reviews or contact the previous client to determine if their experience was a positive one. Web developers like many other independent contractors, always want to secure their job by promising everything the client asks for.

    Really nice and informative article you posted. Before hiring a web developer we should analyse their skills well because its all about quality there are lots of web developer present but quality developers are less. Also need to know about them from their previous employers.
