1. They are cheaper and if family free
Good web design costs money! Web designers spend years studying all aspects of web design. We have premises, insurance, legitimate software and up to date computer to purchase before we start. Your mate down the road has no overheads as he is most likely working out of this bedroom.
2. They will provide unlimited revisions
It’s true that we would normally only do a couple of revisions at the most, and in general, we get it right the first time. But if revisions are your thing then you will be in good hands.
3. They have Photoshop and Dreamweaver
Yes, being of the Internet generation and a fan of The Pirate Bay they have no doubt got their hands on hacked versions of Photoshop and Dreamweaver. This is the same software that we use to build a website, if only we had realized when we started University that we could have saved ourselves years of study by just going to Pirate Bay instead.
4. They will give you just what you want
Why would anyone want to deal with professional web designers who have ideas and suggestions? Designers work to best practice and ensure that you have a website that conforms to usability guidelines and all current legislation. It’s just so much easier to go with someone who will do exactly what you want, after all, they know what they are doing.
5. They grew up with the Internet
Let’s face it kids these days are practically weaned on computers. They then go to school and take all kinds of computer related classes – they really know their stuff. It sucks that we wasted all that time at University. What were we thinking its not like we learned anything we didn’t already know. It’s a good thing web design never really changes otherwise we would have to keep up with all the current trends and programming changes.
6. They have Photoshop & Dreamweaver, Remember?
Just because they have Photoshop and Dreamweaver, two very powerful and complicated programs, does not mean they know how to use them properly.
