For many people, the cost of using a web design firm to design and maintain a website can be prohibitive. Most freelance web designers do not have the large overhead that a large web design firm has, so the freelance web designer can pass these saving on to you.
If the website you plan to build doesn’t have substantial programming or backend issues (which is often the case), a good freelancer can easily handle all of your needs at a fraction of the cost you’d likely pay to a web design firm. Plus, the freelancer is much more likely to be able to give you the hands-on service and support you need as your project moves forward.
Before you assume that a web design firm is necessary to handle your web design needs, check out the freelance web designers in your area — some of them may have been in business longer than that firm you’re looking at; they even may be more likely to stay in business in the future, especially in this perilous economy.
