Looking after your own website as a developer

Posted on July 6, 2021 at 2:45 pm

If you are a freelance developer then you should have your own website. Your website is very important in helping you promote your business and get in additional clients. IT may be that you advertise your website through paid for campaigns such as Google Adwords or Facebook Ads. It is vital that your website is up to date and not only looks as it should but also works as it should.

If a customer is looking for a new web designer or developer then they are likely to search on one of the search engines such as Google. If you do not have a website then you are very likely to miss out on some enquiries to businesses that do have a site. IF your website is dated or contains information that is no longer correct then it is vital that you update it as soon as possible. Some clients will be put off and will not use you if your website isn’t up to scratch as it may give them the opinion that their website will not be up to standard.

Set aside a bit of time every week to update your site. Schedule it is like you would other client work because even though you are not getting paid for it, it will help draw in new business.
