Leading Vancouver Web Design Company Advises on How To Choose A Web Developer

September 11th, 2018

Do you realize your choice of web developer plays a major role in determining the success of your online business? An award-winning Vancouver web design and development company offers you benchmark guidance on choosing the right web developer, so you can avoid fatal mistakes that could cost you your online business.

Through my professional online experience dealing with Think Profits.com Inc., a leading Vancouver web design and development company, I’ve learned to set my standards sky high when it comes to helping my clients choose the right web developer to handle all their online business needs.

According to this top-rated Vancouver web design and development company, an ideal web developer should do nothing less than to create more profits for your online business, by providing search engine optimization with leading-edge, search engine friendly, custom web site design solutions; successful Internet marketing strategies; and one-stop Internet services to fully leverage your business’s online marketing potential.

This Vancouver web design company also suggests that you should find out if your web developer has a strong ability to perform with creativity, integrity, and commitment to excellence. Find out whether they offer long-term value and know how to apply unique Internet marketing business strategy methodology that will give your online business initiative every competitive advantage available today.

With rising demand in the web development industry, it becomes imperative that you choose the right web developer to drive your online business. Some people simply choose a web developer from one of the first few people who contacted them, while others make their selection based on the prices offered to them from various companies or individuals. I must warn you…this kind of selection process can negatively impact the overall delivery and implementation of your online presence on the web!

What people most often forget to consider is the ability and track record of a web development company. How long has it been in business? Is it stable and will it still be in business once the work is done? Does it have the capability to deliver what you’re looking for? Are the prices offered feasible and comparable to market standards? Does its team have the technical competence to warn you about any potential flaws or problems that can creep in at a later stage? Does the web developer provide after-sales support when work has been done and delivered?

Another important factor you should consider when selecting a web design and development company is the client experience. Are client testimonials and references available for review? Have clients’ expectations been met or exceeded? Has the company maintained long-term clients, and proven its ability to successfully build long-term client relationships?

These questions may seem like obvious inquiries to some of you, but even then, how do you know what’s considered a satisfactory answer? Is it safe to trust that you’re in good hands? Really, how well is your web developer performing for you? Don’t waste another minute wondering! Start with some simple due diligence to make sure your online business is on track to success. Refer to the benchmark standards set in place by leading Vancouver web design company Think Profits.com, and use the site to learn how to make smarter decisions to fully leverage your business’s online potential!

Writing Quality Content About Web Development Interactivity In Portal Forums

September 9th, 2018

Okay so, over the years I’ve written a number of articles on Internet topics, and to do this I have to do a lot of research. I’ve read countless books from the best of breed in the industry. Not just those who are actually doing it, but also the research papers from the computer sciences putting forth their philosophical theories and math. One thing that I do not see enough of are articles that help website designers and developers integrate everything. Let’s spend a few moments to talk about this.

If you have some background in building websites or web development, there is a specific topic that I can’t find a whole lot of information on, although I do recall going to an Internet business seminar in Las Vegas once and one of the symposium breakout sessions had to do with the best ways to manage Internet forums on Internet portal websites. Although I was busy and couldn’t attend that particular session because it conflicted with another one, now I wish I had. You see there’s a lot to know about the psychology of keeping a community together and preventing cat fights.

Perhaps you’ve experienced this where you write something on an online Internet forum, and immediately someone comes by and calls you something terrible, rather than discussing the topic or debating the point. When this happens, feelings are hurt, people’s reputations’ are flamed, and it creates a negative user experience. It causes people to no longer value the website, or wish to participate. This ruins the chances for solid interactivity, building of community, and increasing traffic. Whereas it is true that a little bit of controversy does build traffic, the wrong type of bickering and bantering on Internet forums destroys all that and more.

In fact, it quickly becomes an issue with the brand name of the website, and sometimes people get so upset that they hunt down the Internet forum organizer and start in on them, or start complaining about the other party to them, and demanding that various posts get deleted. That’s unfortunate because as soon as you start deleting posts, everyone realizes what’s going on, and everyone claims their free speech has being violated. No matter that a portal website does not necessarily guarantee free speech, especially personal attacks.

No matter how much you put in your user agreements that people must get along, they will always push the limits and beg for forgiveness, next thing you know you spend all your time dealing with various personalities and conflicts as they drag you into their drama. There is a right way and wrong way to handle all this, and we need more online quality content and carefully constructed and authored articles to help website developers with these issues.

If you know anything about this topic or you have a degree in psychology, there are plenty of Internet readers who would love to read what you have to say. Please consider all this and think on it.

So You Want to Be a Web Developer?

September 7th, 2018

Ah, well, welcome to my world!

Work from home, when you want to. $150 an hour potential income. Work part time at full time wages.
Well, maybe 10 years ago.

So much has changed since I put up my first website back in the early 90s. Back then, the Internet was nothing more than a few pictures and some text, not much to it. The hosts were all UNIX boxes and you had to know how to make a directory, upload files, and the set folder and file permissions before anyone could see it!

Jump forward almost 20 years; the technology has changed so much that my 13 year old son could put up his own site. No worries about knowing where that file is, what makes it work, or how it could be improved. Such is the case with millions of other people who have access to the internet.

So why would someone want to pay you for something they could do themselves? Easy. They might be able to put up a picture and write some text, but it won’t look like all the other sites out there. Why? Easy. Because they were written by a professional, who has studied and learned what makes the internet tick and how it works.

So that’s the first obstacle you must overcome is to learn the internet, learn how to talk to the world!

The next obstacle is clients; you have to somehow get someone that wants a website, or a better one. Many people make up signs and post them beside the road with a phone number. Some use classified to search for people wanting a website, and then send them information about themselves; examples of past work and beg them for the job. Others don’t really have to look for work. Because they have done so much work and made their customers happy, they in turn refer someone to them.

Which leaves the last and final piece of advice, how much to charge. People are funny about websites. They want a professional website, but they want it for as little as they absolutely can get away with. When I was searching online classifieds for work, I can’t tell you how many time the headlines read:
“I need a Website, prefer student or beginner to pad profile” or something in that manner. In other words, “I need a website, I don’t want to pay you, but you can tell everyone that you made it for me”. Which in my opinion is just complete and udder disrespect for the trade! Then when you do find someone who respects you enough to pay you, they want to pay minimum wage. Even though it may have cost you as much as a Jr Collage degree for online courses, books, web space and advertising, it’s still only worth minimum wage to them.

So there is some advice from a professional web developer to someone who wants to be one. I have learned a lot about people, technology, and most of all financial security in my career. I hope that should you decide this is what you want to do, you will give the community, you and your customers the respect that this trade deserves.
