This is just as common as not paying enough for a job. You should understand ex-actly what the going rate is for any type of web development task. Do your home-work before you settle on a price for your project. One way to ensure you are at least in the ballpark budget-wise is to accept multiple bids. Don’t set a fixed price. When the bids start rolling in, take the average of those numbers.

Paying for a Graphic Designer When You Need a Web Developer

Graphic designers design graphics and images. Web developers develop web products by writing code. A website designer has some of the skills of both a graphic designer and web developer. You should understand exactly what your project requires before hiring a developer or designer.

Not Being Flexible

You should have a timeline for your web development project. Just remember that you need to be flexible. Things happen. Problems arise. Complications and speed bumps appear out of nowhere. Being ridiculously rigid when something goes wrong with your web development project means a failure to truly under-stand what is happening. When life gives you lemons, make lemonade, and when your web development job doesn’t go according to plan, be flexible, make the necessary changes, and move on.

Setting the Right Budget When Hiring a Web Developer

Most people have come to expect that you get what you pay for. This means you probably understand that a web developer working for $25 an hour in most cases will not be turning out the quality of a $50 an hour freelancer. You can certainly find inexpensive diamonds in the rough from time to time, but that is tough to do when hiring a web developer.

Go to a site like UpWork and search for the type of individual you need for your next web development gig. Do the same at Freelancer, Guru, and Toptal. No doubt you are staring thousands of freelancers in the face. The websites just dis-cussed have vetting and rating systems in place to ensure you have a good experi-ence. This means whenever a low-cost freelancer is found, the skill set and rating for that individual many times reflects the lower pay scale.

You certainly don’t want to spend any more money than is needed to get any web development job done. You also want to deal with someone which will complete your project in a timely manner. These and other considerations should come into play when you are setting a budget for some web design task, whether the job is large or small. The following tips will help you design a smart budget for your next web development project.

Budgeting for Small Projects

The more experienced your developer, the quicker and more efficiently the job will be done. This means if you hire a highly talented web developer, consider paying by the hour. The better developers work quickly and like to knock out as many jobs and projects as they can each day, week, and month. Meet their per-hour proposal, and though it may seem a little steeper than what you would like to pay, you could find yourself saving money versus paying on a per-job basis.

If your web developer or designer is capable but not the cream of the crop, draw up your budget with a fixed price for the job in mind. You pay a flat fee for the en-tire job, rather than paying by the hour. Less experienced developers may need to work through several revisions and require more time than an experienced devel-oper. Paying by the hour could end up costing you an arm and a leg if a less-than-talented developer takes forever to get the job done.

Budgeting Large Web Development Projects

Large, intricate web development jobs often take a lot of time. In almost big pro-ject every case, it makes sense to attach a fixed price to the job. You should also structure incremental pay when different stages of the overall job are completed.

Take a 20% Overrun into Account

How much money do you have budgeted for a specific project? If you have $1,200 to spend on a flat-fee project, offer the job for $1,000. This gives you $200 wiggle room in negotiations. Do the same if you hire a web developer for an hourly rate.

Except in extreme cases, a capable developer should be able to complete a job without exceeding 20% more than the estimated cost.

Should You Hire a Web Development Company or a Solo Developer?

Should you hire a one-man operation for your next web development project? Perhaps it would be smarter to go with a well-known web development company instead. Both approaches have their advantages and pitfalls, and it really depends on what you are trying to get done, how much money you have to spend, the timeframe you are working with, and several other variables.

Why You Should Hire a Solo Developer

If you decide to choose an individual freelancer for your web design or develop-ment project, there is one benefit that stands above all the rest. You will always and only deal with one individual. Most of the time, freelance web developers work on one project at a time. That means they will be dedicated to your job and your job only until completion. Often, you can spend less money for a talented web developer by hiring an individual rather than a firm.

Dealing with an individual rather than a company means not having to explain the process or project scope to several people. This one-on-one communications fac-tor is far and away the most advantageous reason to choose an individual rather than a company for your web development needs.

On the other hand, what happens when an individual runs into problems that keep you from getting your project completed on time? Life happens to everyone, and freelance web developers are no exception. Sickness, unexpected family is-sues, mother nature, and unforeseen political or social upheaval can have a nega-tive effect on how efficiently and quickly your solopreneur handles your job.
