Handling Problems in Your Web Site Development

Don't be afraid of additional charges. (Don't be totally comfortable with them, either--see the next section.) As good as your basic site map and strategy are, they won't always be able to stand up against the various problems that occur when translating a good idea into a reality. And when those problems occur, it'll cost you and your coder both money and time in order to correct them.

Additional charges can crop up for any number of reasons, but always crop up from only one of two sources: you or your coder. You might realize at some point in the design process that there's a better way to organize your basic site map, that there's a certain angle for selling your product that you'd like to incorporate into your website, or that your original design ideas pale in comparison to what you've just come up with. Major web development companies are providing web programming services at affordable rates. Your coder, on the other hand, might build your site exactly to specifications, test it out, and find out that there's a fundamental problem with your collective solution to the three basic design problems of direct response site design. The interface might not be wholly intuitive, for example, or your commerce system might not be integrating with the page properly in order to give customers a seamless ordering experience.
