Web design and development companies build sites for businesses and individuals in a wide range of industries, including healthcare, banking and finance, retail, technology, manufacturing, and education. Regardless of industry, companies need to have an online presence to maintain customer engagements and promote brand awareness. Web developers create, program and connect websites to remote servers, which then deliver content through the Internet to end-users’ computers or devices. They may specialize in front-end or back-end development. Some full-stack web developers have both skills and can handle coding, UI/UX design, connecting the site to servers and maintaining the site.
Once a website is complete, it’s put through what is known as beta testing to see how well it performs and whether there are any issues that need to be addressed. During this time, the developer will fix any problems and continue to work on improving the site as needed.
There is a tendency for many web development companies to use the terms product and service interchangeably, but there are distinct differences. For example, products are tangible and can be sold individually, while services are related to intangible elements but can be charged according to pre-designed packages such as subscriptions. For this reason, the vast majority of web development companies offer retainer payment plans for their services to ensure they can manage their workflow with a steady stream of revenue.
