Most companies look to a New York web design agency when trying to redesign their website because of its constant flow of media that helps New York web designers keep abreast of new web developments to enhance user experiences. However, we feel that with email, Skype and a myriad of other internet-based communication tools, you should expand your search to at least include the rest of the United States. There is a lot of talent outside of New York and by limiting your search to such a small area, you may be missing out on web design firms with better prices due to significantly lower cost of living.
Hiring a web design agency is a lot like buying a house. Sure you can buy a house in Detroit, Michigan for as little as $100 but it’s Detroit where the unemployment rate is over 17% due to the dissolution of the auto industry. Detroit even has a program, which will pay people to take abandoned houses off the market. That same house in Manhattan, New York City might cost you five million or more. The top 10 most expensive cities are pretty stable; they remain almost static so your equity is guaranteed. Now we are not recommending that you go to either of the two extremes. Unless you are a Fortune 500 company, perhaps the best web design agency for your business is somewhere in between. Price should not be your only consideration. You should also evaluate a web design agency based on their portfolio, client references, proposal and first impressions.
Cheaper still would be just to hire a freelance web designer. However, web design firms, although more expensive, are a safer bet because they have a team of designers, developers and SEO experts with a wide variety of skills unlike a freelancer. If one person gets sick on goes on vacation at a firm, your project will still continue because someone else will take over.
Even though we are not based in New York, we are targeting this area simply because there are so many companies here. We have a full team of web designers, developers and SEO experts who all work from home so you get the best of both worlds – cost savings from our low overhead and the broad skill-set and experience of many creative professionals.

When I first began working with Jeanette I was immediately blown away by her understanding of web pages and web indexing. I was so impressed that she was the first person I thought of when beginning to redesign my professional website. As a physician, it is incredibly important to my practice that I have the top ranked site for my field, and with Jeanette’s suggestions, we were able to correct critical mistakes in both design and presentation that my previous web designer failed to understand. Working with Jeanette was a great experience professionally and she never ceased to surprise me with her incredibly insightful recommendations, understanding of web theory, and artistic eye in web design. I highly recommend her web design services to anyone who wants to see their page reach the #1 spot on search engines, she is amazing!
