What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
As a customer, you should make sure that you have everything in writing. 1. Ask the provider if they use table layout or css (cascading style sheets). Tables can stop some search engines from crawling your website. Some browsers don't like table layout. 2. How will search engines find my site? They should answer in lengths and thorough. As well as offer to teach you a few things. 3. Will you teach me how to manage my website without programming language? The answer should be a joyous YES! Unless there are major changes to the website that require coding, you should be able to add pages, images, edit.. without your provider.
