There are around 40 web designers in and around Halifax; this is a relatively small number of designers for the number of people who live in the area.  

However much of the design talent has shifted towards Bradford and Leeds as they are more commercial.

Additionally there are around 15 larger marketing companies that offer web design as part of a broader range of marketing services, such as advertising, PR and  digital marketing.  There are also a few small PR companies in Halifax that can assist you with media support.

Why A Website Is Important

Whether you are a shop on the Halifax high street or a an online fitness company, a website is important.

Your website is your virtual shop window, whether you get business from customers from it or not.

Like it or not, we now live in a digital world as the COVID lockdowns have taught us.  Online shopping has more than tripled and most people now look at their mobile phones over 200 times a day.

The other thing to remember is that the internet has been around for over 2 decades and people can spot a cheap website and a good one.  For this reason your website does need to look professional.

Selecting A Local Web Design Agency

There are a broad range of website designers in Halifax to choose from whether you want a freelancer or an established agency.

Also from neighbouring Bradford, Huddersfield and Leeds, care needs to be taken with regard to which agency is selected.  

Talking to web design agencies that have experience in your industry is something that is advised.  

By looking through their portfolios they should show you the kind of sites they have designed in the past.

Working with a designer that is based locally is always advisable, however if the designer is based around the area then that is also OK.  

Using one that is based in London or Scotland just does not make sense.  

Visiting a web design agency is always advised, so you can “suss” them out, meet the team and ensure that they know your business and objectives.

However as COVID has made meeting in person dangerous, a ZOOM meeting is a safer option.

We have put together a few tips on choosing a web designer, which may be helpful.

Things To Consider

There are going to be lots of questions you will have to discuss with agencies, but here are a few things to consider:

  • Website Content – Who will write your website content, you or the agency.  The reality is that you know your business better than anyone, so if you can be involved in creating the content, your message should be stronger.
  • Website Platform – There are a number of different website platforms available to choose from, each one geared to different reasons.  Wordpress is the most popular platform, but WordPress websites are not suitable for all companies.  There are also bespoke designed websites if you needed a customised one.
  • Website Hosting – Some web designers in Halifax have web servers and do offer website hosting, but there are lots of web hosting companies around the UK to choose from.
  • Marketing – Once your website is up and running, you need to get people to visit it.  Some website designers do offer digital marketing such as SEO & PPC, but not all of them.  Let us know if you need help with marketing for your website and we can get you quotes for that also.

There are lots of things to consider when comparing quotes for website design but these are a few things to get you started.

Compare Multiple Prices

As all web design agencies in Halifax are different, all offer different approaches to design.  They each have different skills to offer, and different web design prices.  

Do you want to use a freelancer or an established agency.  Freelancers do tend to be cheaper as they do not have the staff costs or overheads of an established agency.  Some have lots of web design experience, some have just started trading.

Selecting the ‘right’ designer is important; the cheapest is not always the best, but cost is always an issue, certainly considering the economy.  

By comparing quotes and designs, businesses can be assured that they are not overspending, and are getting the best value for money.

A Few Words About Halifax

This is a minster town in the fair county of Yorkshire, West Yorkshire in fact, and is best known for wool, its Building Society and its ‘Mackintosh chocolate’ which is now owned by Nestle.  

The oldest reference in 1091 is as ‘Halyfax’ and it was considered by the locals that John The Baptist’s head was buried in the town.  

This is why there is a picture of the saint on the towns coat of arms.  The minster in Halifax dates from the 12th century, and was dedicated to John The Baptist.

The first organist was the person who discovered the planet Uranus, William Herschel.  It has just under 100,000 people living in it and is growing.
