If you don’t want to learn XML yourself, that’s fine. Not everybody who want’s to take advantage of the extended markup language needs to learn it. In many cases, it is enough to know that it exists and what you can do with it.
Business owners who are running complex web sites like an online store need XML, but they don’t have to code themselves. That’s even not their business. As a business owner, you have to run your business and pay somebody to do the XML work.
If this is the case, I would recommend looking for an agency that can help you with these tasks. Last week I flew to Munich, Germany to attend an XML conference. On the plane, I met the owner of a digital marketing agency from Germany. Since he was sitting right next to me, we had a great conversation.
The name of his agency is “agentur kundenstrom“. They are mainly focusing on search engine optimization, paid advertising and web design. But, they also know XML very well and also help their clients to implement it in their businesses.
We had a very good conversation on our flight and at it quickly turned out that he would also attend the conference.
Finding the right agency for your XML work
If you are looking for a service provider who can help you to take advantage of XML and implement it in your business, you might want to do your due diligence thoroughly before hiring an agency.
Make sure that they know what they are doing. Ask them about their XML expertise. Ask them about the projects they were working on in the past. Do they have this expertise in-house or would they be outsourcing it to a subcontractor?
Try to learn as much as you can about how well they know XML and what experience they have.
Doing so will help you to find a great agency that will get you the results that you are looking for. Hiring the wrong specialist can really be a pain. Especially, when you need to get something updated.
