Its true to say that what goes into your website makes a difference. The problem most business owners starting out is that there can be a knowledge deficit in this area, although understandably. This is part of the history of humans, trading one specialised skill for another.

Hourly Fee Versus A Fixed Price

When looking for an estimate you can opt for a fixed price quote or an hourly rate. However the best approach in our opinion is to go with a fixed fee. The reason for this is that the developer should on most cases know what the cost of the project will be from experience. The only caveat for opting to pay an hourly rate is where the project has development requirements that don’t have a definite timeline for completion. Especially with a new undertaking that the development comapany has not gone through before.
