So you do all kinds of research in the world to find a budget-friendly company to hire PHP developer for you project. Expectations are always higher at an initial stage, and it’s quite normal considering the fictitious “less cost-more services” advertisements these companies gives. Talking about the advertisements, some companies avoid rubbish, clearly display what they deliver along with their promotional offers and generously follow what they promise in their ads. These are the companies you must hire your resources from. Price is not a correct way to judge someone’s ability to perform the given task. If you hire PHP developer keeping criteria of price, you will end up working with businessmen and not a zealous computer programmer.
I have got a very interesting example for you about one of my client Mr. Clinton Travis. He had an internet marketing business which was going awesome (he has superpowers of quick sales conversions). His services were so genuine that his clients wanted him to get into Web and Mobile Apps development too so that they won’t have to contact multiple companies and plus they will be sure that their expectations would be met. So he began searching for web and mobile apps development companies with whom he can partner and outsource the projects coming from his clients. After a lot of comparison and analysis, he thought he found a company to hire PHP developer from. They were very cost-effective and would let him earn a good commission too. They signed the agreements and he gave them his first project. At first, everything was going very smoothly and hassle-free and then the actual developer came into the picture. Clinton soon got to know that the company who assured a qualified and experienced developer to work on the project, actually offered a graduate fresher. The project included a system like Google where the database needed to be scanned to show the results for the entered queries. It was not a rocket science, nor was the database Google-sized. Initially, the client explained the project to the business analysis who assured everything is possible as per the concept and gave a go-ahead for the project. Then the project manager explained half of the things mentioned in the scope document to the developer (he was real busy with 10 different developers already). Of course, this led to a miscommunication between the project manager and the developer.
Clinton was really frustrated with the irresponsible behavior everyone carried in the organization from where he hired PHP developer. And yes, they charged him additional money every time he explained actual requirement to the developer, as they thought it wasn’t clear before. His clients began to lose faith in his business too. Something had to be done quickly to save his happy clients. To avoid this havoc again, he posted his requirement on one of the freelance website (You don’t need to pay an upfront cost till the project is delivered). He found one company who not only understood his requirements precisely but assured to deliver a quality project on time or you don’t have to pay them anything. This looked convincing so he signed up an NDA with them and started with the project. Guess what, the project went on smoothly and Clinton paid more than the promised amount because he was very happy with the services. This is the difference between a quality project and a cost-effective project.
The conclusion is when you seek for a company concerning the budget from day 1, you will end up spending more than you expected and it will never workout as per your plan. But if you focus on developing a quality project and share the similar views with your development partner from where you hire PHP developer, you will notice a significant quality of output than the former.
