You’re a business without a website. You know that having a website will allow your business to reach more people. What are your options? You can build it yourself, but do you have the time or knowledge to do so? You can hire a freelancer, but does he have the manpower to deliver your website to the highest quality, whilst meeting deadlines. Finally, you could hire a web design agency. Although a web development company will charge more, they will deliver peace of mind in return and a visually and functionally much better website. Here are 10 reasons to hire a web design agency;

Web design agency

A full team of developers, designers, and marketers

The main benefit of hiring a web design agency is that you’ll get a team of developers, designers, marketers and other professionals all with expertise in specific skills for your money. This will allow your website to reach a different level to that of a DIY or freelancer built website.

Support throughout the process and after

The difference in the support you’ll receive from a web design agency compared to a freelancer is night and day. Support will be available before the project begins, during its development and after its launch. You’ll receive support for any questions you have, as well as bug fixes, improvements and maintenance. With freelancers, after your project is finished they will be reluctant to provide support as they’ll inevitably be working on a new project.

SEO and marketing help

SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization, which is the practice of increasing the quantity and quality of traffic to your website through organic search engine results. Here at Deence our custom built websites come optimised for SEO as standard.

High quality site

Ever tried to create your own web design? Despite the abundance of templates out there, it can be really hard to develop a top-grade, feature packed website by yourself. A web agency will give you a results driven website that’s attractive and dynamic, providing a fantastic user experience. With the advent of new technology as well as constant developments in web design, today’s websites are nothing like those from even 3 years ago.

Responsive design

Did you know that now mobile phones account for over 50% of all website traffic? That's why it's important more than ever to make sure your website is responsive across all devices to give your users the best experience, no matter the device. In fact, Google recently switched their algorithm to index mobile websites first.

Competitive advantage over DIY sites

A web designer will help you stay ahead of the game with the latest cutting edge web technologies and trends. This gives your business a competitive edge, with their highly skilled web teams whose sole purpose is to make your website a success online. A new feature needed on a website could take days to add by yourself if possible at all, whereas a web design agency have ample experience in doing so.

Faster site

Many websites are not built with optimal performance in mind. WordPress powered websites accounts for a large chunk of the internet. Templated themes can be thrown together by someone with little web design knowledge on WordPress. But the fact is they’re more than often not built for performance. With page speed being an increasingly big factor in search engine indexing, a fast site is more important than ever.

Time savings

Even if you know a little bit, you probably don’t know enough to build a solid, optimised website. That means you’ll have to spend a lot of extra time trying to figure it out, which could take a long time and could still make you end up with a less than professional looking website in the end. If your goal was to save some money by doing the work yourself, you won’t really be saving much of anything.

You Will Look Trustworthy

People want to know there is a reputable company on the other side of the website. A website that’s thrown together in a hurry or just not made well isn’t going to give them that. But a professional web design company can. Getting them to create a nice, functional website can get you more clients. If they see a website they like the look of, they’ll feel more comfortable interacting with your business.


Even if you do make the website yourself, it may not be a reliable one. Remember, you aren’t a web design expert, so you may not realize your website isn’t reliable until it’s too late. A web design company will create a reliable website right away that you won’t have to worry about crashing, breaking, or just acting weird.
