The Care and Feeding of Web Developers
November 1, 2004
If web site development is not your primary business, sooner or later the road to a successful small business web site is going to bring you to hiring a web developer. Regardless of whether you’re having your entire site developed for you, or are just having modifications done or features added, your experience will be much better (and your bank account much happier!) if you have an understanding of what to expect, and how to avoid costly problems and misunderstandings. This teleclass series covers simple steps you can take to:
- Find a web developer who is qualified to do what you need, within your budget.
- Prevent misunderstandings (and avoid scams) regarding deliverables, schedules and costs.
- Be sure that you are prepared to control the content and structure of the site.
- Make it simple to keep your site fresh yourself, without costly updates.
- Build a relationship with your developer that keeps everybody happy.
This six week Teleclass Series consists of the following one hour sessions:
- Finding the Right Developer
- The Development Cycle You Should Expect
- Getting Ready – What You HAVE To Provide
- When to Listen, When to Insist
- Enabling Easy (and Inexpensive!) Updates
- Evaluating The Results
Participants will receive a lesson plan for each class, as well as access to the downloadable audio recordings of each class. The cost for this series is $125.
Special Offer: This series is currently under development — if you would like to be a participant during this development phase, your cost will be only $99 for the entire six-week series. A limited number of seats will be available for this price, on a first-come, first-served basis.
Next Series: Thursdays at 4pm EST, beginning 4/07/05
