When any business, large or small decides to improve their online presence through web design or online marketing there are plenty of options available to them in the market. It can be a difficult decision, from that company you saw with TV adverts to that friend of a friend who's a web designer and everything in between. It's important not to rush into any decisions as it's something you're going to want to get right first time!
So how do you decide?
Well I work for a small design agency so I'm always going to be bias towards choosing a local web design company, but that doesn't necessarily mean I'm not right. Your website is going to be a huge investment for your firm and is a great opportunity for you to increase your market share. No matter what decision you make, no web designer is going to know your business as well as you do so the most important thing is communication and building a relationship with those who are going to create the face of your company online.
