In today’s technological age, it’s common knowledge that your business needs a website. No matter how large or small your business is, a web presence is crucial for its success.
But who do you hire? A globally known company with hundreds of clients? A national company servicing dozens? You may think that hiring a large company will result in a stellar website, but that’s not always the case. Juggling a number of clients can lead to some not getting the proper attention they deserve – would you want to end up as that client?
The best solution for your business’s website design needs is to hire locally. Here are three reasons why:
Communicating with an agency that’s in your area is much easier than with an agency across the country or across the globe. Email exchanges are always a good option, but sometimes you need a face to face meeting to really hash out what you need.
These kind of meetings are nearly impossible when working with a company across the country without scheduling time off work, paying for flights, or driving hours to get to the agency. A lot of us don’t have the time or resources to be away from our business that long, so going local is the best way to never skip a beat.
Hiring a local agency to design your website is a great way to already get a leg up in the process. The agency will be familiar with your area, know what works from a design perspective, and completely understands the people who will be accessing your site. After all, the designer is might even be a current customer.
Entrusting a local firm to create your website not only guarantees they know the area and your customers, but gives you a much greater chance that they are already knowledgeable about your business. Having that understanding from the get-go is a great advantage, and saves you a lot of time in the beginning steps of the process.
For example, if you’re a local restaurant in Columbus, Ohio, – say Katzinger’s (who’s been around for over 30 years) – you’re going to want a company who knows your business as well as you do. Who would know your business and the German Village area better than a local?
The greatest thing about hiring a local agency is that you’re going to get a custom design, and not a cookie cutter website dozens of other companies are using. Standing out online is incredibly important for a business, and local agencies understand just how important it is for YOUR business.
A lot of the time, a local agency will be willing to work with you and your budget, unlike larger corporate companies who throw out a firm price and turn up their nose if it’s a bit out of your price range. Of course, a local agency isn’t going to do free work. But if you can only budget for a custom homepage design with template inner pages versus an entirely custom site, a local agency is much more likely to accommodate than large agencies in big, distant cities.
