In our experience

Some of our freelancers from 1999 have been working with HTML and other fundamental web building languages. These web languages are the central functional backbones which feature in every type of website.

If you are familiar in any way with web development you will not have gotten far without at least an intermediary level proficiency in the HTML language, for example.

Since 2010, we have also embraced the more modern benefits of WordPress CMS which has enabled us to implement much smarter online content strategies for our business clients.

In recent years, Google has implemented many strikes against poor web content publishers.

Because of this tougher stance, many small business websites which are poorly managed have suffered in rankings.

Content management tools like WordPress have helped us remain both relevant and agile in our hurdling such search software update obstacles.

Step-by-step process to hire freelance website management on the Isle of Wight

[1] Research

Make sure you do your research. You’ll want to make sure that you are speaking the same language when you establish first hand contact, so make sure you know what’s what.

Write a needs statement which articulates what you perceive your website needs are and detail exhaustively.

[2] No obligation 1-to-1

Always ensure before any engagement there is a thorough ‘Q&A’ session between you. You may want to quiz and probe into areas of service or technicality which you simply lack the understanding of.

[3] Reviews

Ask to speak with some of their customers. Keep it brief, but get a gauge for how they will handle you once you sign-up.

[4] Case studies

Case studies illustrate very clearly the benefits involved with working together. They inadvertently answer issues such as ‘how long will it take to see improvements?‘, ‘how many revisions do I get?’ or ‘what is your approach to getting the right results?

[5] ProposalĀ 

Once you are sure that this freelance webmaster might be the one you want to hire, ask for a proposal (action plan). A written plan of action will communicate their professional take on what it is your website needs to achieve your business goals.

[6] Quote

Budget needs planning, so a quote will enable you to decide if their services will be feasible. A payment plan also will keep you abreast of how the freelancer will expect to be remunerated.

[7] Final questions

Anything not quite understood? Now is your chance. As them without holding back and uproot any uncertainty.

Sign up

Get started. Make agreement and get going with improving your small business website.
