Finding a Developer for Magento Ecommerce Development Servicesby Digital Hub Solution Website Development and Digital Marketing Services
Hiring a Magento developer can significantly affect your budget or timeline. How can you ensure that you are hiring the right person for the job? As a business owner, you most likely get dozens of emails from people trying to sell their ecommerce solutions. You most likely come across varied developers on LinkedIn as well. But, how do you go through everything and choose the ideal candidate offering Magento ecommerce development services?
In this blog, we’re going to help you make the correct decision. So, without any further delay, let’s get into the pointers you need to keep in mind.
1. CHECK YOUR REFERENCES
If you have any references, make sure you call them first. In case you do not have any references, take them from friends, acquaintances and already existing employees from your workplace.
Once you have a list of times, you need to ask specific questions. Ask them if they deliver on time, type of projects they have worked on, do they have experience with dynamic and static website design and more.
2. DOES THE DEVELOPER ASK THE RIGHT QUESTIONS?
An experienced developer will ask you questions such as how many products do you have, what are your business goals, what is your target audience, and more. If they don’t ask any questions related to your website, there’s a chance you’ll be stuck with a poorly developed website and will go on to pay an extra fee for getting it fixed later.
3. VERIFY THE DEVELOPER’S LOCATION
Offshore Magento developers generally have a bad reputation. But not all of them are bad. Moreover, their cost is way less than any US or Canada based developers and will give you great value for money.
Aside from offering Magento ecommerce development services, the developer must be available at a convenient timezone. This means if a problem comes up, the developer will be there to help you out.
Another factor that you need to focus on is communication. No matter how talented a developer is, if you cannot communicate with them in a common language, you will not be able to get things done moving forward.
4. DO THEY OFFER A TRANSPARENT PRICING MODEL?
Pricing is also an essential factor that can make or break your final decision.More often, we come across developers who complete half of the project and then ask for more money in return for it. They practically hold the clients’ hostage.
Instead of getting tangled in a situation like this, it’s better to opt for a fixed price model. Selecting a particular developer or company that charges hourly-based prices will help you get exactly what you paid for. Before finalizing things, make sure you have answers for questions like - who will pay for the extension, you or developer? Who will own the stock photos when they’re done - the development team or you?
Once you’re sorted with all these questions, you can go ahead and sign the Magento ecommerce development services contract.
5. TAKE A LOOK AT THEIR PORTFOLIO
Magento is a complex platform. So, it’s your responsibility as a manager or business owner to ensure that the individual you select has ample experience. Other ecommerce platforms such as Shopify and 3DCart aren’t anything like Magento, so if they have offered dynamic website designing services in the past, it doesn’t mean they’re capable enough to handle Magento as well.
Simply ask for their Magento website portfolio, check if they’ve previously worked on a project similar to yours; place your concerns (if you have any) and then make the final decision.
