What do web development services include?
Most web services focus around designing, developing, and maintaining websites. Depending on your project, you may only need one specific type of web expert, or you may need to assemble a team of geeks with different specialisations and abilities to work together. Here are some of the most common web services and what you can expect:
Website design & development
Looking for a professional web designer or developer? Your freelance web developer professional will help bring your website vision to life. They’ll start by understanding the purpose of your website, what you need it to do, and the content it needs to include. Then they’ll propose a design. Once you’ve approved the design, they’ll use code and/or a content management system (CMS) to create the design and make it fully functional on desktop and mobile. They’ll upload any content (including images and copy) you’ve provided and run it by you for final approval. Your professional web designer will finish by uploading your website to your chosen web hosting platform then test your website to make sure it’s free from bugs.
WordPress is the most popular content management system (CMS) for powerful websites of nearly any size. If you’d like a custom WordPress design, you’ll need to hire a freelance Wordpress developer who can create you a custom theme using code, along with built-in WordPress plugins. You can even add eCommerce capabilities to your WordPress site with the powerful Woocommerce plugin. Your WordPress developer will build your theme, run testing to ensure it functions smoothly, and see if you want any changes before making it live on your hosting.
Other content management systems
Other than WordPress, you can hire a range of CMS developers, covering platforms like Weebly, Wix, Joomla, and Squarespace. Each of these platforms has specific setups around what you can customise and how you can integrate different codes and functions. So it’s always best to look for a professional website designer or developer who specialises in your chosen content management system.
Need an eCommerce website developed? You can find website developers who specialise in all the most popular platforms, including Shopify, Woocommerce, Magento, and Opencart. With each of these platforms, it’s important to hire an experienced developer. Ecommerce has a lot of moving parts, including your chosen design, product details, databases, inventory numbers, customer contact information, and payment systems. Your developer will do extensive testing before finalising the project, and you’ll want to keep them around for ongoing maintenance to make sure your online shop stays bug-free.
