Compare Website Design Prices In LondonCompare Prices From 5 Web Designers In London

It is wise to compare website design prices in London, as costs do vary considerably.  For companies that are based in London, the problem of finding a website designer is huge.

Who do you select?  Someone local, go with a recommendation?  Someone who has experience in designing websites in your industry?

Do you select a freelancer, do you select a small web designer, a large agency, a digital marketing agency that can help you with marketing?

There are lots of freelancer websites that encourage working with freelancers overseas (in the USA, Canada, Spain etc.) as well.

Here is a challenge, do a quick internet search and you will see the millions of pages of results.

There are over 2,000 website designers in London.  Ranging from small designers (freelancers, or students working from home) up to large web design agencies that have major blue chip clients under their belt.

However, if you select a large web design agency, does this mean you will get a better website than if you had gone to a freelancer or student?

We have put together some advice on choosing a web designer, which may be helpful.

Quality Is Important

The main thing that effects the quality of a website, is the experience of the designer.

The look of the site may be good (the design element) however does the backend of the site work, do the forms work, does the website convert visitors to customers?

Finding a good agency is not easy, and there are a few independent websites (such as Trust Pilot) that act as independent mediators to post reviews etc.  However, some companies will bad mouth their competitors, so referral sites are not always to be trusted, and need to be taken with a pinch of salt.

When considering website designers for a new project, another consideration needs to be given to their industry experience.  Have they designed websites for companies similar to yours before?  Do they know and understand your industry, your customers and what your customers are after?

Why Is It Necessary To Compare Prices In London

It is necessary to compare website design prices in London for the very fact it is the most expensive region in the UK (next to Edinburgh).  Rental prices are higher, council taxes are higher and therefore agencies will need to demand higher fees.

Just because an agency has a London postcode/address, does not make them better than a website in the west country or further North.

Choosing an agency based on their quality/experience is important more so than location.

Questions To Consider Asking Web Designers

When comparing web design prices in London, there are going to be a number of questions you will have.  Here are a few questions to get you started and get the conversation flowing:

  • How long have you been designing websites?
  • What web platforms do you work with?
  • Do you work with any companies like ours or in our industry?
  • What kind of website do you feel is best suited to us?
  • Do you offer website hosting?
  • Will you write the website content or would you like us to contribute?
  • Can you help us with online marketing?

There are going to be lots of other questions you will have, particularly ‘how much is it going to cost’, but choosing a web designer on price alone is unwise.  A cheap website will look cheap.

However you do not get what you pay for with web design.  The most expensive web designer is not going to be the best.

What About Being Found Online

Price is not everything to consider.  Although comparing website design prices in London is important, there are other things to consider, mainly being found online.

You may have a great looking website and have got a good price for it, however if you do not get website visitors, you have an empty shop.

Is the website set up with Googles ever changing algorithm in mind?  Maybe talking with an SEO agency in London is a wise idea, to ensure the site is created with search in mind.

Compare Quotes And Shop Around

Another consideration is cost.

How much does a website cost?  There are different web platforms such as WordPress and Shopify, which one is best, how much will it cost?

Website designers in London can be pricy.  Staff costs are more, rental of offices are more and this needs to be absorbed into the cost to you the customer.

The more important question, is how much is your budget.

Website design prices will vary depending on the size and quality of the website.  A large website (like Amazon) will cost more than a 3 page website, and different designers all have different fees and rates.
