Question and answer

Q. Describe the most common types of jobs you do for your clients.

A. Shopping Carts, Database design, Web page design, user interface design, and web application development. Web site interactivity is the way to engage your users and generate repeat visits and increased sales.

Q. Describe three recent jobs you've completed.

A. Financial reporting and tracking tool for a Fortune 1000 client built using jQuery library. Web sites for political candidates. New company start up web site in the sport hunting industry. Pro-bono web sites for education non-profit organizations.

Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

A. Make sure you only pay for delivered goods and look for companies who don't demand a large down-payment (or any down-payment). A timeline of deliverables and a rock-solid written agreement that spells out the details will prevent potential misunderstandings and "scope creep".

Q. If you were a customer, what do you wish you knew about your trade? Any inside secrets to share?

A. A well written web page with engaging content goes a long way towards making your site successful on the search engines.

Q. What questions should a consumer ask to hire the right service professional?

A. How long have you been in business? After all, web sites are ongoing and are never really "finished". They have a life of their own and you want to do business with a company that has been around for a while.

Q. What important information should buyers have thought through before seeking you out?

A. What do you want your site to do? It it simply a "yellow page ad"? If so, perhaps an open source web site builder is all you need.
