Author : Jessica April

Masses of startup companies are seeking their web presence through a simple web site or an interactive net portal. To accomplish the web development task they attempt to find the resources on internet. They search for resources using keywords like freelance web developer, freelance internet development or freelance net designers. Either they end up seeing some blog of freelancer or they reach to the freelance heaven websites like rentacoder, getacoder, getafreelancer, elance or odesk. Such sites have scores of low-cost freelancers registered with them. You'll place a project and you'll be able to get as many as fifty-a hundred bids for your project in a very day. This sounds fascinating initially but it's simply a beginning of process. The hassle starts now. Here are few difficulties you'll face at initial stage.
1. You've got overwhelming bids that makes the selection tough for you.
2. Every one in all them tells you that they're the best, but hardly few of them are literally telling the truth.
3. You may not find simply one freelance net developer meets all your wants, Mr. A meets fifty% matching necessities and Mr. B and Mr. C meets 25% every, that will increase your troubles.
SO finally you selected somebody with all your agreements on value and estimate, currently you'll see the second largest pool of difficulties
1. The communication could be a major issue, the freelancer does not reply emails on time and neither do they continue to be online all the day as a result of they need their full time jobs elsewhere (that jobs pay the total time income)
2. The freelancer is a lone person however the project of net development needs completely different skills like project demand analysis, design the website mockup, HTML conversion, programming in PHP or.Internet, quality take a look at and delivery. Normally not one person will all. This invitations drawback three
3. The freelancer either asks you to manage different resources for him or he goes and finds different freelancers to help him; that comes on higher price. So you waste ton of your time while your selected freelance net designer is busy finding help for him.
4. As I said in point 1, most of the freelancers have their full time jobs, such jobs demand heap of time and energy, so freelance internet designers or developers work on odd hours or they merely do not work on some days once they are busy with their full time jobs. Such behavior causes additional delay to your project delivery.
5. You will come across numerous excuses for not delivering of your comes, some common excuses are "I'm not well since few days", some emotional excuses like "My mother/father/daughter/wife isn't well thus I'm in hospital". Such excuses are emotional blackmailing techniques which will build you suspect that the freelancer is in trouble while he is truly making an attempt to shop for some additional time.
6. Most of the Freelance web developers are over loaded with work as a result of of their cheap hourly rates. Such overloading can build you suffer the delay in your net development project. That increase more frustration.
7. The major drawback you may come across is that the freelancer disappears after you paid him advance cash for your project. Sure freelancers have many accounts created on odesk, elance, getacoder, rentacoder, getafreelancer kind of internet sites, so they would stop responding you and neither do they can come your initial money.
So your arrange of saving cash may finish up losing money and time, losing time is more expensive than losing money.
How does one prevent this, here are simple reasons to pick out a small web development company compared to a contract net developer.
1. The company has future set up, so internet development firms are professional.
2. Company has several resources for net style, web development, quality testing and deployment thus your project never suffers a delay.
3. Company features a legal name, legal offices therefore internet development corporations will sign a contract with you, a freelancer never signs a contract or signing contract with freelancer has no meaning.
4. A web development company has many back resources therefore even if some developer or designer does not show up, the company will replace them with alternative developers, your work never suffer.
5. A web development company takes money on milestones, so your money and project both are secure.
6. Most vital point is communication. You can get a smart communicating folks in internet development companies as a result of the manager is always a well experienced person; he takes all responsibilities of issues and payments.
Above all its ease when you work with net development corporations, it comes at little extra cost however with heap of amenities as described above.
Alternative is yours, select a contract net designer and ruin your net development project or select a web development company and run a successful internet primarily based business.
