You are convinced that a smart presence on the internet can be beneficial for your business. You know that your site has to be redone, but you still hesitate: should I call a web agency or turn to a plan B: freelancer, trainee or a recent graduate ...
The answer is simple, for every need, there is an expert!
Developing a website requires varied skills and complementary profiles that digital agencies can make available to you:
Consulting, Strategy & Analytics
Before you start creating your site, an analysis of your needs, your target and the sites of your competitors is necessary. It will allow you to compare your project to the reality of the sector in terms of digital communication and to identify do's & don'ts.
The project managers in the web agencies are the best equipped in terms of knowledge and tools to take charge of this crucial stage of the project.
Of course, you can do your own thinking, but this will not replace a comprehensive study conducted by professionals.
Creativity, design & ergonomics
The mission of the web designer is to highlight your content, while respecting the charter and the style of your company.
In addition to experience, technical knowledge and creativity, a web designer closely follows the trends of design: color, iconography, effects, animations, etc. He will offer you a design in time, tailored and in line with the requirements of your activity field .
In addition, the following things will be taken into consideration:
- Ergonomics : a clear home page inviting you to discover the rest, legible texts (typography, font, contrast ...), well-structured internal pages with accessible navigation, etc.
- Responsive signage : with more than 50% of the consultations that are made on smartphones and tablets, and since Google has decided to penalize non-mobile friendly sites, you can not neglect the mobile accessibility of your site. Today, designers are working on two fronts: desktop design and mobile design.
Speed, flexibility & scalability
The majority of the agencies will propose that you develop your site by using a CMS (Drupal Wordpress, etc.), which will allow you:
- Simplicity in updating the content. The provider will offer a training of a few hours for this purpose
- To evolve your site by adding pages, features without costing you an arm and a leg.

Within an agency, an expert developer not only masters the technology perfectly, but also follows training to be up to date in terms of novelties: modules, tips, etc.
He works invariably faster which guarantees you quality and optimal deadlines.

For this, a SEO expert within the project team is a necessity.
