Relationships with anyone or with anything evolve over time…either for the good or for the bad. You break-up, you make-up, you reconnect, you give up. Your relationship with your current web provider is no exception. Sometimes what seems good at the start turns cold. Or maybe what was once great still is. We’ve compiled 3 simple questions that will easily let you know whether your relationship with your current web provider has gone sour or not. If you can answer yes to any of the following, it might be time for a change.
Is your current web provider hard to get in contact with?
This is by far the biggest complaint we hear from potential clients who are looking to move on from their current web company. We hear of web providers ignoring requests from their customers on the daily. If you can’t reach your web company…that’s a serious problem. Updates can’t be made, designs can’t be altered, new functionality can’t be built – everything will stay stagnate until you are eventually forced to rebuild with another provider.
The good news? At Scriptable Solutions we answer the phone, respond to emails, texts, messages, posts, tweets and everything else in between. Unlike most of our client’s previous web providers – we actually want your business and want to keep it! Yes…we went there.
Is your current web provider not meeting deadlines?
With business, timing is EVERYTHING. There are probably stacks of files on your desk right now that needed to be completed yesterday. We know how it works. The unfortunate part is, a lot of web providers don’t see your business priorities as being their own. We have heard hundreds of horror stories from new clients about how their previous web provider missed company deadlines, causing them both time and money.
The good news? That’s not what we’re all about. We fully understand the importance of YOUR deadlines. We know how important weeks, days, hours, and minutes are when it comes to your business. Every second counts – and that’s why we wear watches.
Is your current web provider not capable of developing features and functionality required for your site?
This is the second biggest complaint we hear from potential clients who are looking to move on from their current web company. Unfortunately (or not unfortunately for us), this is a huge issue with web providers who create sites using templates, such as WordPress. Working with template based websites restricts how and what can be done on your site. Equally – there are several other web providers out there who cannot create exactly what you want because they lack the knowledge to do so.
The good news? At Scriptable Solutions we create all websites completely from scratch. Because we design & develop all of our websites in-house, using technologies coded by hand…there is nothing we can’t create. No templates = no problem.
