When you say web development company, most people think that it is all about designing a website, however, web development is so much more than that, although it includes website design. In this article, we are going to walk you through the basics of a website development company so you will know what to expect.
A web development company, in a few short words, creates a website from the ground up. In order to appreciate the work that this type of company does, you need to take a look at websites like Amazon. Amazon requires a lot of programming work aside from design work. If we need to take a guess, there would be a team of web developers working on the website constantly, making sure that it functions properly every day. More important, the team would be working on new developments to make the ir more functional to its users.
Aside from Amazon, there are other websites that require just as much work. If you see a website that has a complicated function in it such as in the case of a web-based Customer Relationship Management (CRM) software, you can expect that there is a team of web developers behind it, with each member having a solid experience in the different programming languages required to maintain such a website.
Now, if you are like most people, you do not need to have a team of web developers. As a matter of fact, if you are planning on building a WordPress website, you can be your own website developer and just install the WordPress on your website. However, if you are planning on creating a software-as-a-service like CRM or a shopping cart the size of Amazon, you absolutely need to have a solid team of web developers behind you. The same is true if you are developing applications and selling them on the Internet.
There are literally thousands of web developers all over the world, here is one in Perth, and you can outsource some of the work on your website to workers in the Philippines or India for example, that is, if you want to save costs.
However, if you are going to outsource, make sure that you have a team leader that you can talk to face to face in your own companys premises. That team leader should be experienced in leading teams to create websites from the ground up.
