Pay Monthly - A new approach to websites
We've been designing, developing and marketing websites for 20 years now. We've see a lot of fads come and go and built a lot of bespoke websites. However, what we are seeing now is a change in the market. Businesses typically have the following options of getting a business website designed and built:
The agency route
Creating a bespoke website. Typically starting a a few £000's to provide a quality bespoke site which would take a few weeks to a few months to create. The positive is that you should get what you want from an experience agency but at a cost and timeframe that may stretch the budget
The cheap (and not so cheerful) option.
Either a local small designer or an offshore development agency. Cheap websites are typically that. They may have a reasonable design but typically little thought to the user experience, editing ability or on-going marketing
In-house or freelance individuals.
This can work well when you have specific functionality or bespoke integrations to undertake, but for a typical business website is overkill, expensive and by using individuals you will invariably miss out on key skills that a single freelancer would offer.
