Scaling up a business is always a good idea and scaling usually starts with moving your physical business to a digital platform. And for that, you need someone with full-fledge knowledge of web development. Here, you have two options, either hire a freelance web developer on a project basis or hire a web developer in-house.
Either way, you require someone who does not only have knowledge of building a website but also knows how to maintain it and keep things simply smooth for you. This blog is an answer to the question that is often asked, Are web developers actually worth hiring?
Why you need a web developer?
Web developers are always a great addition to your team as they can help you create web applications and websites for your business. And a website for your business is always invaluable. Not just that, a web developer can help you with quite a lot of other things as well. Which includes the following aspects.
Wide range of expertise
A good candidate, whether it’s an in-house or freelance web developer has knowledge of not just web development but also knows about web designing (yes, they are not the same thing), On-Page SEO, and digital marketing as well. This will be beneficial as the web developer who knows about other digital aspects will organize your website and the tasks accordingly and this will be a big plus in scaling forward and time-saving
There are some times when you/your client are stuck with some technical issues and are not aware of how to move forward with it. In that matter, a web developer is always there for the rescue. It is because they are the ones who know how things are working and they will be there to provide you with the solutions.
A web developer will always stay ahead and will make sure that your website is completely optimized. Not just the desktop version, but the mobile version as well. They will work on your website to make it as responsive as possible without increasing the site load time.

A web developer constantly keeps themself up-to-date with current technologies and trends. This means that they know how and what things are working and what is not. They are always the right person to contact for your digital strategies and they will also introduce new strategies as well.
If your website is not responsive and compatible with the latest mobile technologies, then you are in danger. Because mobile search traffic is growing every month and if your website is not mobile-friendly, the bounce rate will increase and you will lose quite a lot of potential clients. A web developer will build your website as responsive and mobile-optimized as possible to make sure that you are not losing anything in short term and long term as well.
