When you are full of enthusiasm for a project it is easy to get carried away, wanting to do it all yourself – whether you’ve been trained to do it properly or not. These days almost anyone can set up a website, but when it comes to designing a professional business website it is a different matter. Such websites need to be built properly with a specific purpose in mind and if they are not they won’t accomplish your goals. So here are 6 reasons why a digital agency should be engaged.
- It will save you a great deal of time and money. A digital marketing agency such as Slinky Digital has a team of experts to work on your website. They know what to do and how to do it. They can install complex parts as easily as simple ones. It might take you a day or a week to put up your website; it would take an a professional an hour, or two at the most to get that website up and running. Of course, that is not counting the time spent in interviewing you to see exactly what your needs are.
- Does your staff include a graphic designer trained in website design? Unless the answer is yes, your website will not look as professional or work as well as it should. You hired staff for a specific role, not to design a website. They can do their job description very well, so who will do it if they have to leave all they do to try and make a website?
- A digital agency will include a team of advertising experts who know exactly how to get the most out of several ways of advertising, from emails through to Google ads. This means that your website will do exactly what you want it to. If you want to make money, it will attract buyers. If you want to garner a customer base, it will attract people interested in signing up. You can usually choose what you want them to do so as to remain within your budget.
- A competent digital agency knows the best way to optimise your website in order to attract the kind of traffic you want. They know how to ensure your website appears on the top page of search engines so that traffic comes to you rather than your competitors. And they know how to attract the kind of traffic that converts to customers.
- You wouldn’t let just anyone fix your car; it should be a qualified mechanic. So why would you let anyone – yourself included – who is not trained and qualified as a website designer touch your website. A good digital agency knows so much more about the whole business of website design that you can have peace of mind when you hire them.
