Why use Freelance Website Development
Most freelance Web Developers work out of their homes. This helps them reduce the overheads associated with running full-fledged offices. They are able to pass on these savings to clients. If your website requires ongoing maintenance, you can pay freelancers retainer fees that are only a fraction of what you would pay an agency.
The prevalent misconception is that larger agencies would be able to provide better quality than freelance developers. The truth however is that the size of a business has absolutely no correlation to the quality of work delivered. Agencies generally have an individual developer working on a project, so you’re essentially pitting the skills of one developer against another. Make your final decision after analyzing the portfolios of both the agency and the freelancer
Freelancers are often able to provide deliverables in shorter turnaround times. This is because, in an agency, larger teams are involved. A freelancer, on the other hand, can bypass meetings and brainstorming sessions and make iterations at a much faster pace. Since they set their own hours, they have the flexibility to stretch their hours to accommodate your project.
Most freelancer developers have worn different hats during the course of their careers. They generally possess graphic design, photography, UX design and other skills. Having one person working on all the visual aspects of your website helps keep the design and tone consistent. Moreover, when you have ongoing requirements, there is little guarantee that an agency will always assign the same developer to work with you. Employees at an agency are also more likely to quit, making it difficult for you to maintain continuity.
When working with a freelancer, you’re dealing with an individual and not different departments. Though agencies do assign a point of contact for the client, the interaction with the actual developer is limited. A freelancer is both a developer and an account manager combined, making it unnecessary for you to approach him/her via a third party.
Good freelancers have worked with a variety of clients in roles that have stretched them. This means that they bring more experience and expertise to a project than an agency developer who has usually been assigned a similar set of tasks. Freelance developers are also often on top of the game when it comes to upskilling themselves. Agency developers, who have the comfort of a job, rarely up-skill themselves.
