How To Compare Quotes From Web Agencies?

Today, we will give you the keys to compare quotes and especially identify the main focus of attention that you will analyze.

How To Compare Quotes From Web Development Agencies?

To compare quotes and find an agency that has the best value for money, it is important to compare several elements, all of which have more or less a potential impact on the quality and cost of the project.

Among them, there is, of course, the distribution of the costs of the different stages of the project, the number of staff planned by the agency but also the number of days of planned developments—also applicable for a home decoration design (รับออกแบบตกแต่งบ้าน which is the term in thai).

Let’s go a little deeper into the details of each of these points.

Always Compare

Comparing the average daily rate for each section of the quote is usually what you will do first. And you’re right because this rate, i.e., the cost of a day’s work, is a way to put the agencies in competition with the quote they sent you.

Some will say that the lower the rate, the better. This is usually what makes a real difference between agencies. However, it is important to take into account the context of the agency.

Indeed, you will easily agree that an expert is usually better paid than a junior. Thus, we can also say that the higher the rate, the more profiles that work on your project will be experts.

Again, this view may be wrong because large agencies usually have higher fixed costs which force them to have rates over small agencies working with only freelancers, for example.

Identify The Cost Of The Different Phases Of The Project

If you have already read my previous article, you now know that it is possible to amortize the costs related to the development of the website itself.

On the contrary, the provision of advice, such as the definition of a graphic charter or the costs related to the operational management of the project is not, in turn, non-depreciable.

Being able to amortize the costs related to the development of the site is an important element of comparison of an estimate of website creation.

And for good reason, the amount of these fees will be as much budget that you can use when you will make a redesign of this site in a few years. The consulting fee is “dry loss” for your budget.

So, do the calculation of each development item and compare the different quotes. Again, you should see some differences between the selected agencies even if you’ve got to translate Japanese to Thai (แปลภาษาญี่ปุ่นเป,็นไทย which is the term in thai).
