So you are thinking about a new website for your business.
Hey, I’m Codey!
There’s no doubt that it can be tough to choose the right company to work with to develop and design your website for you, and that’s why I’m here. It’s my job here at mediachimps to help you understand more about website development.
Only a few years ago it used to be that you had one main option and that was to hire a website company, pay a one off fee and be on your way. Sometimes having to hire a graphic design then a developer too. But now there are literally hundreds of options available to you.
The difference between traditional website development companies and managed website development service companies is an important question and one that keeps cropping up. And quite rightly so, if you don’t know anything about website companies, then you’ll want to know a bit about each of these services before you make any decisions.
Here’s the short version
- A traditional website development company will perform a one off job or project and design, develop and launch a website for you.
- A managed website development company will do exactly the same, but also look after your website for you on an on-going basis, so you don’t ever have to worry about it.
One is like buying a website without any insurance or aftercare. The other includes aftercare, so if anything does go wrong with your website or anything needs to be changed/added/altered, you are covered! Phew, at least we have got the major difference out the way, but there’s more….
Before you make any big decisions, let’s dig a bit deeper and look at how websites have changed and the advantages and disadvantages of each type of service. Sounds like a win win for everyone – go Codey!
