Hello good people,
Fiverr if getting bigger everyday with lot of awesome services. Credit goes to experienced, expert & dedicated sellers and awesome Fiverr buyers. Its a community where people can get quality services in affordable price. I am really happy to be a part of Fiverr family.
Getting to the point, recently Fiverr is getting popular for “Complete website service” (mostly WordPress) which save piles of money of buyers. The service is getting better and better as sellers are offering varieties of offers which adds an extra gear to the service.
Even though these services are good enough, buyers should still be careful while purchasing a service. I am saying this before these services are the most expensive ones at the community. You will always get offerings like “Get high quality, professional, discounted, Bla bla at affordable price!” - Well don’t get full by the offerings. If you spend little bit of your time, you can find out what quality of service you are going to get, even before ordering it.
I am sharing few useful things from “Buyer’s point of view”:
- Don’t judge a service with the offered price, analyze and compare it first -
Its not wise to immediately come to a decision whether a service is good or bad considering its offered price. Different developers have different strategies, offered price is out of the question until you go through the features and judge its quality. always remember “NOTHING IS FREE, QUALITY/PROFESSIONAL STUFFS ARE EXPENSIVE”
- If the seller is offering premium template/theme/Plugins, ask for detail -
Its recommended to know what you are getting. If a seller offers you a premium theme/plugin, ask him whether its nulled (crack version of original template/plugins) or original. DO NOT take the service if its not owned by him. Nulled templates are one of the main reason your website gets hacked, injected with virus and other suspicious codes.
- Quality & Professionalism -
Of course its one of the main requirement while ordering a website. One of the easiest way to judge the quality is to ask for previous works or portfolio (popular/common practice). But please remember to justify whether the shown example of works/portfolio is really developed by the seller or not. You can ask him questions about his previous works, how he implemented features, how he will implement those to your website etc. You don’t need to be too technical to do this, this is just to understand whether the seller is selling his own experience or cheating on you.
- Website security, speed and optimization
You might already know its very important that your website is secured, fast and optimized for search engine. Remember that your SEO guy is not going to fix your website coding, structure or overall loading speed. Basically its a job of your web developer to do it at very first place during the development. So make sure whether he will do it or not. Ask him what type of security he will implement on the website and why its useful.
- Responsive/Mobile device optimized
Its a MUST requirement for the websites these days as almost everyone is using Smartphones these days to browse websites and Apps. You need to make sure that your website is mobile device optimized before getting the delivery.
- Always consult before the order
Its highly recommended to consult with the seller about the service and each feature you will get with the Gig. Make sure there is no “Hidden Agenda” or “Unexpected Surprises” for you which reveals during the development period. It usually leads you to frustration or a dead end.
I hope these points will help you to buy a better website! Its important that your pay good money for good services. I will keep posting more useful tips for websites, themes, plugins and other features.
God bless all Fiverr people
