All under one roof
Why should you use a design agency when you’re starting a business, updating your current business or just need a bit of help with your website, social media and marketing?
That’s a very good question, and one I’ll try to answer for you here.
Image you want a new bathroom. You wouldn’t want to go to one shop for your taps, one for the toilet, another for the bath and somewhere else for the shower. Imagine how time consuming and frustrating that would be. How much easier if you could go to one store, get advice on design, order everything you need, book the plumber and decorator, and arrange a day for everything to be fitted.
Ease and convenience is something everyone is looking for, whether you’re updating your bathroom or your business.
Keep it together
We quite often get people coming to us who have one person hosting their website, someone else who’s designed the logo, a third person doing social media and marketing, and a ‘friend’ who can knock them up some business cards.
There’s bound to be confusion and frustration along the way; someone goes on holiday and can’t be contacted, the ‘friend’ needs the logo for the business cards but the designer isn’t responding, there’s an update for the website but the developer just doesn’t seem interested in doing it.
Now imagine if everything is all handled by a design agency. A team of people who actually communicate with each other, know what’s going on and have access to all the customer details and requirements. There isn’t just one person who can make updates to the website and there’s someone available at the end of the phone or email. All the relevant documents are in a shared folder that everyone can access, and if someone is off sick or on holiday there will be someone else who can do the job.
A shared workload
When you decide to work with an agency you are getting an extension of your business. This is particularly important if you’re working on your own, it’s always helpful to have a sounding board to give feedback and advice. Someone who isn’t directly involved in the business is likely to be more objective and give an honest opinion.
If you’re a larger organisation, it’s normal to have too many chiefs all wanting their ideas heard. An agency can help to put things into perspective in a diplomatic way, thus avoiding internal power struggles. We can become the voice of reason, explaining why things are best done one way and not another.
