Thanks to the internet, the marketplace has changed forever. Word-of-mouth and advertising still work, but more often than not these days, a potential customer’s first impression of a business is going to be its website.
Remember that old saying about how you never get a second chance to make a first impression? In the online world, it’s truer than it’s ever been before.
When a customer reaches a website and finds it hard to navigate, slow to load, lacking in relevant information, or just plain unappealing, what’s going to happen? Most likely, that person is going to leave the site and probably never return.
As a small web agency, SEO specialist, or marketing/PR firm, you therefore know your clients are placing a lot of trust in you. It’s not an exaggeration to say that the services you provide can make or break them.
Are you always up to the challenge?
The Downsides of Keeping All of Your Development In-House
There’s a natural inclination to keep everything under your roof by hiring your own team to handle all your web development and coding projects. Keeping control over projects centered in one place might seem like the way to go to make sure you always know what’s going on and your clients are receiving a consistent product.
There are some downsides to that, though. First, you have additional salaries to pay, and good coders don’t come cheap. Also, do you have enough work to keep them busy full-time and offset the labor costs? What if there’s an extended slowdown? What if several team members are out sick?
In addition, you need the space for these people to work and the equipment they need to work with, including regular upgrades. None of that is free, either.
A professional web development agency can ease this pain by saving you time, space, equipment and costs while still providing top-quality work. With such a partnership, you won’t have to worry about the ups and downs of workflow, attendance, and retention because your partner agency can always meet your needs as they adjust.
