How Business Web Development Contracts Work

Business web development services can vary in cost depending on the company you work with, the specific services you contract for, and the complexity of the project. Most business web developers work on contract, which means that most costs are agreed upon ahead of time. Changes or adjustments to the agreement at a business owner’s request are usually subject to additional charges.

Most business web development companies will meet with you before a contract is signed and outline a plan for your website. You’ll need to know whether the company will host the site, or whether you’ll need to find a third party host. Ask who will own the rights to the created content- most websites should be copyrighted, and the business that contracts for the site doesn’t always own the copyright, especially if extensive programming is involved. This is an important consideration if your logo or other identifying business graphics are included in the site.

The contract should specify the exact work to be done, a timeline for completion of certain tasks, and a cost schedule. Usually, a business web developer will design one element of the site, say, the color scheme and layout, and then send it to you for approval. On approval, partial payment will be due. Make sure the contract contains language that describes how and when payment will be delivered, a timeline for all services, and a provision for unanticipated services. For example, if you decide you want to utilize SEO techniques once content has been written, the designer will need to go back and re-work prior text. Make sure the contract protects your rights and specifies the duties of the business web development company.
