What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
You need a person or a team that understand the direction that the business world is headed. You need someone who is constantly growing with the times and staying up to date. I understand the rapid movement to mobile and the changing of common and professional design, and this is crucial.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
Know your budget, know your needs, know your time frame, and look ahead. Make sure your site is built so that you can make edits in the future, or make sure your provider is capable of being there for you in years to come. I always make sure to account for all of these.
