    I would recommend Alex and his team at Danavero Inc. I very much appreciated having a project lead who kept the team on track and understood what I wanted and then had it implemented. He has a team of experienced and talented developers who can get things done quickly.

Freelance web developers VS web development companies

The biggest advantage of working with a freelance developer is the fact that he can perform all the tasks remotely. Actually freelancers can work in 3 different modes: contract, freelance and full-time. The most common practice that they are working for some particular project/assignment and sign a temporary contract. Here are some Pros and Cons of collaboration with the freelancer.

Pros:

  • Reduced costs. It is definitely cheaper to hire a freelancer than the whole development team.
  • Communication. As far as freelancer works alone he is responsible only for himself and for his own scope of work. You wouldn’t hear such an excuse as the work is not accomplished because of someone’s else fault.
  • Expertise. Commonly freelancer is a narrow-focused specialist which is quite comfortable performing some specific task.

Cons:

  • Disappearance. There is a high probability that freelancers can go silent or simply disappear in case if you choose unreliable or unscrupulous developers. We recommend you to have a Plan B or to find a few more candidates as a reserve.
  • Availability. You need to keep in mind that frequently freelancer is working on several projects at the same time and his availability could be quite limited.
  • Quality of work. It often happens that freelancer is more concerned about the quantity of performed projects rather than on delivered quality.

You need to take into account that a web development company will provide you with a wider range of services and may suggest few web solutions for you. The company has a team of various specialists and access to all necessary resources and tools.
Here are some Pros and Cons of collaboration with a web development company. 

Pros:

  • Full package. The web development company offers a full cycle service starting from the consulting and ending with the website deployment.
  • Collective expertise. According to team diversity, they can easily get to the point, consult with each other and as a result, find a suitable solution collectively.
  • Maintenance and support. Every valuable web development company will provide you with the ongoing maintenance and won’t leave you once the website is launched.

Cons:

  • Higher expenses. Obviously, hiring a web development team is always more costly than employing a freelance developer.
  • Extended timeframe. The reason is the internal processes and communication within the team take time.
  • Miscommunication. As long as you communicate only through a project manager the actual work will be performed by another person. There is a high possibility that the task could be interpreted wrong.
