When you have a project in hand, a proposal is waiting on the other side of the mail; you will get anxious. If you do not have the list of capable freelancers or link with a few reputed web designing companies ready at your desk, you might end up falling in the pit.Not literally! But, the wrong decision is equivalent to a similar situation.Though you are the third-party deal maker, the client is relying upon you. This implies that you will be answerable to all the good, bad & ugly situations coming in the project. That’s why you need to be very cautious while outsourcing projects to any other business.
It’s not that you check a few businesses online, ask for the quotation for the similar project requirements & connect with them. You have to be selective in your choices.
Here, we will clarify a few points that you must be very keen about:
It’s not all about the website; the company profile is much more than that. The website will give you a fair idea about their offerings. Still, it’s the real communication that speaks more than the badges and awards. The reputed businesses often post the case studies of the projects or industries they worked for. Since one shoe doesn’t fit all, one company will not be able to give a solution to every problem. The knowledge about the industries they have served will help you decide whether to give your current project to this company or not. Don’t forget to check with the team size, work process, and organizational hierarchy for designing as well as the approval process. This will help you ease & tweak the things as per your project requirement.
Tenure of association:
Depending upon the requirement of the project, you may or may not require a long-term connection with the resources whom you hire. Still, it would be best if you discussed the tenure of association.
The primary reason is to check the availability of the web design company or individual resources for specific projects. Every business & individual has its plans for growth & goals to attain. Many-a-times, clients stick to the work quality or process of certain resources, and they break the deal when that resource moves out of the project.
Though it sounds dramatic, it happens! When you have an idea about the availability of resources, you can promise tenure & reduce the chances of any such misery. Another crucial thing is, resource hunting is a tough job. By your luck & efforts of your HR team, if you connect with the value-adding businesses, the long-term association will have more benefits financially.
The project portfolio of the company as well as that of an individual is equally important. Analyzing portfolios will help you understand the things if you will be missing any. Also, it will help decide the platforms, framework, technology in which the resources are more compatible working. This will aid you in decision making.
Web design company reviews:
Listening to other people & their experiences is always known to add value in one’s life. By checking the testimonials and reviews of the web design company you are planning to hire for the next web development project, you will be able to know the past experiences of their clients. The reviews & star ratings, when combined, can help you make the right choice of the businesses you can connect with.
Cost vs. value:
Let’s say, your client has the project that needs a graphic designer & web designer. There is a company A, offering web designing services, company B offers & matches with the budget. Still, the process will need a creative writer to give voice to your ideas. Now, there is company C, which offers all of the three services, but a little bit ahead of the budget. If your current client can’t stretch the boundaries, you can’t do much. But, if you connect with the company C & keep your links active, you will find them adding value to your business. Such decisions must be taken smartly based on factors like cost vs value, time vs cost, quality vs time vs cost, and so on.
After deciding everything, share your word about the rules of project conduction, & get the NDA signed. If you are hiring the resources directly for your project, that will be a different case. However, when you perform project outsourcing, you have to be extra cautious about the project security norms.
