Choosing A Website Designer
For any business based in Doncaster, there is a broad selection of designers to choose from, considering that there are hundreds of website designers in Yorkshire (certainly around the south) causing a slight problem.
Which web designer should you choose? Someone local, someone cheap, or someone small?
Most businesses around Doncaster are looking for the same thing:
- Someone local
- Someone who has designed similar websites in the past
- Someone not too expensive
- Someone who can design a great website
As there are over 20,000 website designers in the UK to choose from, selecting someone local is only logical. Rather than website designers in Edinburgh, as a visit can easily be made. Having a meeting with a designer is a good idea, not only to suss them out, but to chat through ideas and options for the website. A website is an investment, so you need to ensure that it is given the attention it deserves, otherwise it will look like every other website on the internet.
Website design experience is something that is important. If they have designed websites that are in the same industry/sector, they will have a better idea of which designs work and produce results. All website designers in Doncaster carry their own experience based on the kind of clients they have worked for in the past. Whether it be medical, educational, financial or engineering; so choosing a designer who has made websites for companies in your market will only add value.
Cost is always a factor; certainly since the UK is only now emerging from recession all companies are looking to get more for less. Finding a cheap website designer is easy, but finding a cheap designer that can produce high quality is not so simple. All web designers set their own rates and as such, website design prices will vary from designer to designer. Generally the larger the designer, the more they will charge, as they have higher overheads, more staff and more expensive offices, than freelancers; unless that is the freelancer has loads of experience and can justify their costs.
Paying for quality is the same for anything, you can get cheap cars, cheap chocolate, cheap advice; but people who know their stuff, people who produce high quality products can charge a premium. Finding a designer that can produce a high quality website at an affordable price is ideal, but not easy as they are in demand. Good designers will be busy, and they will need to book you in; as opposed to a designer who is operating at 50% capacity.
Compare Prices From Website Designers In Doncaster
Comparing costs is important these days for anything, be it insurance, cars, houses, food, clothes or whatever. As the UK is recovering from recession, the need to save money and spend less is on everyone’s mind. Why pay for a web designer’s holiday in Mexico, when you can get a much better website designed for less, by someone else who is more experienced and does not charge as much?

A Few Words About Doncaster
Doncaster is a town situated in the south of Yorkshire, in the center of England; the town has a population of around 70,000.
It is an old town based on the river Don and is derived from the Old English ‘Donne ceaste‘ which means ‘the military camp at the crossing point of the River Don’. The Romans built a fort here to protect the crossing point in the 1st century, and Doncaster became an important administrative city between York and Lincoln as a direct route, rather than crossing the Humber in boats.
Doncaster shows it’s Viking and Danish roots as many of the streets are named ‘gate’, which means street.
The town was not mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1068, but the nearby town of ‘Hexthorpe’ was, which was described as having two mills and a church. Richard I in 1194 granted Doncaster a town charter and it became a busy town. In 1204 the town suffered a great fire which destroyed much of the buildings, which were mainly built of wood.
By 1334, it was the wealthiest town in south Yorkshire and was a central point for monks and friars.
During the English Civil War in 1664, Doncaster was pro-royalist and when Charles I rode into the town, he was greeted by the towns gentlemen.
Historically this was a wealthy town and has many great houses and estates visible throughout both the town and the surrounding area, showing the heritage that came with being situated on the great north road.
Doncaster later expanded due to the Industrial Revolution and the neighbouring reserves of coal, bringing more wealth (and black smoke) into the area. In recent years however, as British manufacturing has declined, and the recession has kicked in, Doncaster has suffered with unemployment and poverty, so the British government are seeking to bring a regeneration project into the area, along with other south Yorkshire towns and cities.
