Finding the Right Web Design Company

We know the challenge website owners face today when choosing a company for their ongoing web design needs. There are dozens of web design platforms and hundreds of web design companies nationally who may have differing ideas on how their structure their services and fee structure.

At 118GROUP, we have followed the fads of web design platforms since 1993. We’ve seen platforms come and go. We were late adopters of WordPress, but it is clear to us it has become the platform of choice and is not going anywhere in the near future. WordPress let’s designers rapidly develop great websites, but is always advancing with new technology. It is free and open to the World, and we believe it is here to stay.

Web Design Firm Types

First off, these buckets are based on our 25+ years of experience and customer feedback by over 400 customers. We can never know the trust cost of a poorly designed website, so putting our best foot forward is paramount.

The Freelancer will typically be your most UP-FRONT cost-effective solution. They will tend to lean toward an “order taker” and dismiss the larger picture and just focus on tasks. Freelancers tend to be very busy and turnaround times can vary. If they do not have a writer, a quality control tester, or a graphic designer, you are likely to get a mediocre website containing errors. Freelancers will typically make their clients provide and maintain their own web hosting. Many freelancers may opt for the easier platforms such as Wix, GoDaddy, or Squarespace. The systems are simple and great, but lack imagination and in the long term, do not grow with goal-driven organizations.

WordPress Websites self-hosted by companies or freelancers are eventually in major trouble with hackers or break-fix issues. If the freelancer does not make time (at least 10-15 hours per week) in continuing education, your site is likely to be sub-quality compared to those who spend time experimenting with new services and reading to further their knowledge of web design.

The Boutique Agency will be your next most cost-effective solution (THAT’S 118GROUP). Boutique Agencies typically have 2 or more members and focus on helping your organization stand out while offering a step up in customer service and overall knowledge. This is due to the simple fact today’s best websites require a variety of skillsets and it’s unrealistic for 1 person to possess all of these skills. They should be able to assist with a more collaborative approach to building the website, better graphics, writing capabilities, and better overall turn around times.

The Full Blown Marketing Agency will be your highest cost solution. Agencies typically have extended teams which also specialize in branding, marketing, and other advertising disciplines. We have seen issues with Agencies mostly being there is a revolving door of employees, and some of the employees are great Marketers, but they don’t “get WordPress Web Design”. If they do not have technical folks in-house – that is a warning sign to look for another Agency.

The Offshore Agency can be in any of these categories. In our experience, the calls we receive from previous companies who have used off-shore are concerned about quality issues. An understanding of culture is also a challenge for off-shore companies. If they have not lived in your Geography and cannot identify with your needs, they are likely to make mistakes in their overall design and delivery of a web project. Lastly, BE VERY CAREFUL of offshoring with any company who blindly emails you. This has been a major issue for clients in the past. Run.
