There are over 5,000 web design agencies in London, with more than 30 web designers in Westminster alone.
The problem you face is getting the time to find the right agency.
All businesses need a different kind of site to suit their market and audience, therefore comparison is needed from different web firms.
Just fill in the form to obtain free quotes and advice, with no obligation, from local website designers in Westminster that know your industry sector.
There are over 1500 web design agencies locally, many of whom are ‘virtual companies’, that have paid for having a central London postcode and phone number.
There are around 30 larger creative companies that are ‘actually’ based within the area, and they tend to work with some of the larger businesses that are also sited around London. Working with someone local is better than a web design company in Harlow or even further away.
Before talking with web designers in Westminster, there are a few things to consider:
Who will write the content for your new website, will you or will the design agency?
The danger with relying on an agency to write your copy, is they do not know your product or services as well as you do. They may use a junior member of staff to look at similar companies to yours and write something similar.
It is wise to work alongside the agency, so you are contributing as much as possible, leading to as clear a message as possible.
Website hosting is quite important, this is where your website is stored. Some web design agencies in Westminster offer website hosting, and will encourage you to go with them (they will charge you a monthly hosting fee).
There are lots of web hosting companies in the UK to choose from (Fasthosts, GoDaddy etc. are a couple you may have heard of), comparing quote is wise.
Once your website is created, the work really begins, trying to get people to it.
There are a few options here, long term is SEO (to get you appearing on the organic results on the search engines. Short term would be PPC, paid advertising on the search engines for your main keywords.
PPC can be expensive, so it is worth talking to a few web designers in Westminster about this to see if they can help. Not all offer ‘digital marketing’ so talking to a few digital marketing companies could be wise.
Social media is a new and very powerful marketing tool, and is free of charge for you to use.
Using websites like Facebook and Tik Tok can be a great way to get people talking about your products/services.
Another option is talking to a social media agency, if you are not confident in using social media. Perhaps even using a ‘social media influencer to promote you?
For businesses which are based in Westminster, it is important to organise a meeting and visit the designers offices.
As mentioned, many web design agencies will pay for ‘virtual offices’, or use prearranged meeting rooms, in order to create the illusion of having central London offices.
A meeting will assure you that they are exactly what they claim, that their site is accurate, that they offer the services that they claim to, and are based where they say they are. As many of the 1500 designers are not, it is important to find a truthful agency.
Another consideration when looking at website designers in London is their track record; what kind of sites have they designed in the past?
What industry sectors do they work in, and are they producing the results needed for their clients?
Sometimes asking for references, or the names of recent clients to talk to, can reveal how truthful they are, and whether or not they really provide value for money.
The cost of getting a website produced (or a web re-design) can be very affordable, or on the other hand can be very expensive.
It is time well spent in carefully finding a quality web designer in Westminster, and it is worth paying a little bit more for a great website. However as the credit crunch is still affecting many businesses, comparing quotes and website design prices is very wise.
As they are based in central London, their rates may well be a lot higher, as they have higher overheads and profit margins.
Our roll is to help you get the best one possible for as low a price as possible. There are also many website designers in Kensington just next door that can also help.
Westminster lies just north of the River Thames and is within the centre of London. The name is often applied to the area around the Abbey and the Palace of Westminster, otherwise the Houses of Parliament.
The area includes much of London’s historic heart; thus considered it can be said that it is the political heart of London, while the economic heart is the City of London.
It has around 20,000 inhabitants, most of which may lay claim to be the working class, as well as the social elite.
