Should I choose a Web Design Agency or a Freelance Web Designer?

If you are embarking on a new website project or even a website redesign, it is vital that you find a website designer who you can trust. The volume of web designers out there means there are plenty of options for you, but it can be overwhelming to know which is the right choice.

Unfortunately, many of our clients who come to us have been burned in the past by web designers who have left the industry, lost contact or have just “fallen off the face of the earth!” This is not uncommon – but we are here to assure you that there are web designers out there who have been doing this for many years and prioritise delivering high quality service always … like us!

Why should you choose a web design agency?

1. When working with a web design agency you will often find you have access to a variety of marketing services – not just web design. Take Fountain Digital for instance… We are a knowledgeable team of 7 with specialists in SEO, Social Media, content writing, databases, graphic design, print design, logo design… the list goes on! We can help you with a range of design, technology and marketing requirements all under one roof. We really are experts in a variety of fields and have the experience to prove it. The advantage of this is that these individual elements can work more seamlessly together to deliver a more effective result. For example, the SEO and web design team will be in regular communication to deliver the best SEO campaign possible on your website. It also means you do not have to deal with a number of different companies to deliver these marketing services.

2. When working with a Freelancer, if that person is ill or on holiday – your website or project has to remain on hold. Working with an agency means that you will be in safe hands and the work will go ahead no matter what. At Fountain Digital, there is no inconvenience when it comes to making updates to your website at any time. We have a web team who are here to help every day with any enquiries.

3. By choosing an agency, you can be sure that you will always have access to your website. A Freelancer may move onto another career or unfortunately go out of business and leave you struggling with knowing what to do to gain access to your website or wondering how to move it to another web designer. Take away any potential hassle by choosing an agency who are responsible for your website at all times. It is very unlikely that an experienced agency will go out of business and there are certain protocols in place to ensure you are never inconvenienced with any changes in house.

4. You will find that working with an agency, they are equipped with processes that are heavily tested and proven to work for them. It is likely you will find that from start to finish, the project will run more seamlessly. Not only this, they are likely to have a lot of the latest technology and resources to deliver a high-quality service.

5. Web design agencies are likely to have fast turnaround and response times. They are usually available during working hours and be working on your website project regularly. You may find that with a web design Freelancer, they can only work on the project when they have free time.

6. Designing a website shouldn’t be a one-off thing – the internet is constantly changing and therefore website design’s best practices are also evolving all the time. Choosing an agency means that there is someone who will always be responsible for ensuring your website is up to date and functions well.
