When seeking advice from an internet consultant, it's ideal to have a combination of both a strategist and a person that can offer technical advice. Ideas are great, but if they do not know how to guide the implementation, it's a waste of time and money.
Austin, TX (PRWEB) November 21, 2012
Top 5 questions to ask when hiring an internet consultant...
1. "What is your primary business sector of focus?"
One should be wary of any internet consultant that is trying to wear to many hats.
2. "Tell me about your largest and smallest project?"
A quality internet consultant will offer solid advice no matter the size of the budget or company.
3. "How many past clients can I speak with?"
Many people like to play the role of an internet consultant, so it's important to ask for references. This sounds pretty basic, yet most people do not follow up and call or email references.
4. "Are you a strategist or a web developer?"
There is a distinct difference between the two roles/jobs. When seeking advice from an internet consultant, it's ideal to have a combination of both a strategist and a person that can offer technical advice. Ideas are great, but if they do not know how to guide the implementation, it's a waste of time and money.
5. "May I review your contract up front?"
Internet consultants worth their salt will offer their contract up front for review. One should read it and ask questions. Fees, roles and responsibilities should be clearly spelled out. Also, it's important to ask about confidentiality clauses and time lines.
One should ask a ton of questions from their prospective internet consultant, and the consultant should be willing to entertain them all. As a client, one is placing their faith and trust in the consultant's advice, so one should never be afraid to ask questions.
