How to Work with Technicians Successfully

Ugh! I’ve had so many issues dealing with my website and technicians lately! I’ve had to handle problems with a well-known web company and numerous issues with Internet consultants and freelancers. And this doesn’t include all of the technical issues that go with each update to the site.

Well, since I’ve been through all of this, I have a few tips to share with you. If you want your website creation to go smoothly, here are a few things to keep in mind when hiring and working with your team of professionals:

When you find experts to help you create and host your website, do the appropriate research first. Conduct online searches, contact references, check ratings at The Better Business Bureau (, and look for industry-related associations for assistance. Even if a company is well-known, it may not be the right choice for your specific situation and goals.

Now, it takes a lot of time and effort to find the right people, but it is well worth the effort. Otherwise, you may waste thousands of dollars and hours on projects that never get finished.

Communicate, Communicate, Communicate!
Before you even start working on a project, talk about pricing, deadlines, specific project details and any other important areas relevant to the success of your site. You want to share expectations and develop an action plan to avoid surprises. It’s also a good idea to know exactly how to get out of a contract and the time and fees involved in doing so.

As you work with your team of experts, check in with them on a regular basis. Look at how things are going compared to your action plan. Monitor progress, any potential issues and your budget.

See if any changes need to be made and make them. You’ll reduce stress levels if you know what is going on at all times. But try not to micro-manage. This will just slow down the process and irritate your team members.
