3 Reasons to Choose Boutique Web Development VS. Large Corporation

Posted by | Web Design and Development | No Comments

Several large companies offering web development are putting out some great stuff, there is no doubt about that.  However, there are some pretty lofty drawbacks to dealing with large corporate entities when it comes to web design and development.  We often get asked – Why should I choose Webrank Media for my website over corporate entities such as Wix.com or Hubspot.com?  Well here it is…


Corporations are WAY to good at drawing in clients with free services and then charging for those SAME services once the client has become in-twined with their company and web design software.  Sure you will save $ in the short term, but in the long term it will wind up costing you MUCH more.  Clients often do not realize that small to medium monthly payments add up.  If they get you on the hook for $99 per month, your stuck for the life of your website.  In two years, you have paid $2,400+ for a website that may not have cost nearly that to develop using a boutique web development firm such as Webrank.

Business to Web Integration

Big companies that do web development work on hundred if not thousands of projects at once.  They boast personal touch and support, but can it be effectively delivered with that kind of volume?  We say no.  Our internet professionals dig deep into your business to discover how you should be best represented on the web and what your audience is looking for in websites and web media within your market.  Customer service reps may brag similar services, often don’t pony up and personal touch is lost.

Mobile Devices and Tablets

Many of these big web development houses do not even offer mobile development, a key factor to future online success.  Others do work in Flash, which is greatly disliked by Apple products and usually will not function on them at all.  Since Apple is leading the way in mobile device technology, why would you want a website that doesn’t work on their products?  Here at Webrank, we are all HTML 5 and Javascript, no Flash will be found on our sites.  We were within Web 2.0 standards before they were standard.
