Benefits of a Local Web Designer for Your Business
If you own a business in 2020, the question is not “do I need a website?”, but rather, “who do I hire to design my website?”
There are lots of choices, but essentially, it comes down to one question – who do I want to invest my hard-earned money with? While many new business owners hop online to hire web design firms, in this area you will be better served with the old-fashioned practice of hiring locally.
There are numerous advantages of hiring a local web development agency – like North Texas Web Design – so take these into consideration.
Local Web Development Agencies are Your Most Loyal Asset
Communication is the key to success in any business, and it’s also true when it comes to being able to communicate effectively with the agency that is going to be making your web design. What you don’t want is someone who is in a different time zone, or half way across the world, or in fact someone who doesn’t even speak your language. There is a multitude of ways of connecting in 2020. We have Email, Skype, Instant Messenger, Google Hangouts, FB Messenger, SnapChat, Text Messages, Trello, Hey Space, Instagram, FaceTime, Cell Phone – and these are all great ways of communicating even with your local agency, but, what you can’t do with an online company is walk in their front door, or they yours, and sit down and talk about design, concepts, SEO, marketing, blogs, distribution, customer debase development, logo colors, literally every aspect of your web design that you do or don’t like can be discussed and #hashtagged over in person, not over Skype and the list goes on. Situations and discussions like these are best done and resolved in a person to person setting, for full transparency, and quick, perhaps on the spot results.
Perhaps one of the greatest advantages of hiring a local web development agency is the ability to build relationships and network. Ok, so, the phrase is used a lot “let’s network”, but, it’s used a lot, because it works a lot. That local web developer you hired, most likely works with many local businesses, and they work with, not just people who do what you do, but with all types of industries and professionals. Not only can they help find a reputable professional service provider for you when you might need one, but they will also be an excellent reference for you as well. They have insider knowledge of your competitors and now, they will have insider knowledge of what your potential clients are looking for, as well.
They will understand the importance of your web presence as it relates to local events, potential clients, and residents in your hometown and surrounding areas. Online agencies, by contrast, will generally overlook these opportunities due to their inexperience with the area.
Local Investment – Giving Back
It is true, when other local business owners and residents see that you, as a business owner, give back and invest in other local businesses, that will only have a positive impact on your business, on other local businesses, and in your community. Giving back comes in many forms, and this is just one way for you to help.
Bonuses for Hiring Local
When you hire a local agency, they can and will sit down and discuss with you all the terms that may or may not be relevant to you and your website. When you look at their website and you see that maybe they belong to the BBB, and that they have great Google reviews, and testimonials, or that they have won “this or that” award -you know that to be a fact, because they are local.

Working with North Texas Web Design has been a great experience. As a client I have been treated with the utmost professionalism and respect. I truly appreciate the trust relationship I have built with Mike and his team. I highly recommend North Texas Web Design for building and maintaining not only a web site, but a web presence for my brand and my company!
Stan Mefford with Just Shoot Safely
We have had the great pleasure of working with Mike McLeland for a number of years now. The quality of our website is fabulous. The true test is of course, does it make the potential clients want to take the time to inquire about our services? It absolutely does this. He created it so that it is easy for that potential client to decide quickly and with ease that they want to know more about us and our services. This is rare because a lot of websites in our industry in particular are extremely hard to move around once you have arrived.Additionally, Mike has a rare quality as a Web Designer. He understands who he can send an email filled with technical terms to and who he shouldn’t. The owner of our company receives the technical emails and I get the total opposite. This makes it so much easier for us to work with him.Lastly, his level of care is, ” Off the Charts!” There I no other way to describe it.I hope a lot of other businesses use his services.
