The most important question that comes in the mind of any organization when they conceive the idea of website development is simply whether they should hire a website developer or should they outsource website development job to an agency.
Outsourcing may be good for you whether you are a small company or a CEO of a larger company. The advantages are the same. Here is what you should know. It is often easier to develop a website through outsourcing than doing it yourself. It can significantly cheaper, reduces your time to go live and you get access to a talent pool which are subject matter experts.
Here are some common advantages of website development outsourcing.
Needless to say, a lot of companies in India have tight budgets. As a website development company, we hear this line more often that the company is on a tight budget. Its often because people rarely have a marketing or advertising budget for online activities. A lot of new industries are realizing this and earmarking funds for website development and online presence. If we speak about India, you can find good agencies which can offer you good value for money.
How do you save money by outsourcing website development work ?
- First you don’t have to hire designers and developers who will only add to fixed cost of the website.
- Secondly you wont pay for their overheads – seat, computer, in house benefits.
- Third, you save on training costs.
Access to specialists
Through outsourcing you can reach a wide spectrum of creative designers and developers who are experienced industry stalwarts. Moreover, you can higher different agencies for designing and development and still get a great return on your investment. If you were to recruit the same IT specialists, it would take you considerable time and energy to do the same, even if you hire a recruitment agency, you will have to pay their fee which is usually 8% of the CTC of the employee.
IT firms have a different ecosystem. They often work on agile principles. They an IT team is managed is different from other processes and ecosystems. By outsourcing your website development project, you not only have access to talented developers but you also have access to project managers who can get the work done efficiently and timely.
If your online business blows up, you will quickly need a team of server guys to handle the additional traffic. Scalability is easier if you have outsourced your work to an agency. Initially you might want to test the waters and then scale your business. It is generally harder to adjust the manpower to business capacity.
Access to latest technologies
Every technology is suitable for a certain situation. A person who is versed with backend development might not be versed with frontend technologies. If you outsource the website development project, it becomes the agencies headache to manage everything. An agency will have a specialist or subject matter expert on different technologies, frameworks and libraries.
Time for Development
Time is very important factor when it comes to a new project. Everyone wants to go live fast so that their plan can be realized. An agency can deliver your project faster because they can employ more resources on the project than required to speed up the development process. Again manpower adjustment is really difficult inhouse.
Technology is a gray area. Unless you have a qualified team you really cant be sure of the product you are building. The agency will be responsible for a solid product which is secure and scalable.
An experienced tech agency can not only develop your website, but can really enhance it with their ideas. They might plug an important gap which can save you thousands of dollars. Basically they can help you avoid a silly and costly mistakes just because they have seen it earlier.
Focus on your business
This is the single most important advantage. You cant do everything can you, its always better if a specialist is hired for the job and you can focus on whats important for your business. If you develop a website inhouse it will consume your attention and eat up your valuable time which could have been employed in business development.
