I can’t tell you how many times a client has said these words over the years. Unless the client is an experienced web developer how can they say that the changes are minor? Maybe a client has been through a few projects, but do they really know if a change is going to be minor or major if they don’t write code? Probably not. The fact of the matter is, minor changes are usually major changes. Even a minor change has to go back through the development cycle and be tested. This can make a small project take much longer than expected, frustrating both client and developer.
MINOR CHANGES COST TIME AND MONEY.
Who is going to pay for those minor changes? Will the time spent working on these minor changes affect the overall delivery date of the project? Minor changes cost time and money and the client usually expects this time and money to be absorbed by the web development company. Minor or major, it will affect the project. Whether you drop a small rock or big rock in a pond it's going to ripple out! Minor changes can become a virtual nightmare when you’re trying to fix sloppy or poorly written code. Trying to unravel a tangled fishing pole is no fun no matter what. Often times, starting a project from scratch is easier than implementing "minor changes." Those are the facts. We want our customers to be in the know and understand what’s really involved in making minor changes. Isn’t that what you would expect from the best web development company in the world?
