Essex has over 1000 design agencies; many of which are smaller design agencies and freelancers working from rented offices or from home. There are around 200 marketing companies in around the county that offer website design services as part of a wider range of marketing services (such as digital marketing, SEO services, PR etc.) to larger clients that need support across a few areas of marketing.
The county has a broad range of web designers and there are thousands of website designers in London to choose from, just a stones throw away.
Having a wide choice is a good thing, however too much choice can be confusing; who do you choose, are all web design agencies the same, how do you get value for money?
These are all questions that companies in Essex are asking and many will opt to chat to a recommendation (however just because a web designer did a good site for someone you know, does not mean they will design a great site for you), but this carries it’s own risks.
There are a few things to bare in mind when considering website designers in Essex:
As far a website design goes, all designers set their own rates. Some charge per hour, some per job and none work on commission (the question is asked). As all designers set their own rates, website design prices do vary from agency to agency.
Generally the larger the website design agency is, the more they charge for websites; as they have higher overheads, higher staff rates, more facilities to fund, more expensive offices and higher profit margins.
Comparing prices is a very wise thing to do, as it comparing prices for anything in todays world.
The cheapest website designer is not necessarily the best, bear in mind that a website is an investment and that your website is your shop window, often the first thing that a customer will see before talking to you. Paying a little more for a great design can make a big difference, but shopping around to ensure that you are not overpaying is wise.
The County is a county in south east England just north east of London, the county is 1,420 square miles with a population of nearly two million.
The word ‘Essex’ comes from the old English word ‘?astseaxe’ which means ‘East Saxons’ occupied Englands oldest recorded town in 527 AD (Colchester). The town had it’s own mint and was very well developed even before the Roman conquest; at the time the Kingdom of Essex was very large and stretched up to what is now the Scottish Boarders.
Essex County Council was formed in 1889.
