Having a great idea is perfect but without thoughtful planning, the new-coming task or suggestion might have a fatal result.
The excitement of coming up with an idea for an amazing new website may disappear as soon as one realizes how much development effort is required to make the dream come true.
No matter how grand or concise your idea is, what about the execution? Here’s where problems appear.
Who can be trusted with the creation of your web solution? An independent software developer? Or a company who specializes in web/mobile app development?
At Appscrip, we have worked with hundreds of clients and are well versed in giving dolling out some advice and experiences that may help you decide.
When should you hire a freelancer?
When cost is the prime concern
Your project is not huge
Quality of the product is not much of a concern – rather you just need the job done
One time project with limited shelf life
No urgency compromise with the time of delivery of the project.
You are passionate about your business and are willing to go the extra mile to make it up and running.
But imagine: how much would you lose if your developer unexpectedly disappeared?
There are situations when you need to hire several freelancers: front-end developer, back-end developer, and QA engineer. Those three would never work well together as freelancers.
Look at the pitfalls of hiring a freelancer
They are independent and decide which projects to prioritize. They can decide on leaving anytime without saying anything at all.
- Hard to manage
You cannot control their work. They may be unorganized and bad with time-management. Managing such employees is pretty peculiar and risky.
- Low level of an end product’s quality
Freelancers are interested in their profit, not yours. They try to finish your project soon without paying much attention to crucial details.
- Confidentiality Issues
You can ask that freelancers sign non-disclosure agreements (NDAs), but you’ll still have to weigh up the risks.
- Not Every Freelancer Cares About Your Product’s Quality
Not all freelancers run their business to get returning clients. Your company’s success may not be their top priority.
- No Further Maintenance
Freelancers completing a project and then leaving it is typical. In case bugs appear, you have to look for other people to fix them.
