Agency or Freelancer? How do you decide?


When it comes to entrusting someone with your website project, how do you decide whether to go with a freelancer or an agency? Both have their merits and pitfalls so you just have to weight them out and make a decision that is best for your company. 

  • Usually less expensive 
  • No overhead 
  • Hard to schedule meetings or phonecalls since they usually have a full-time job
  • Projects can take longer since they have limited time they can work on it
  • People are usually generalists
  • More flexible
  • More expensive 
  • Higher overhead
  • Open during business hours so it's easier to schedule meetings 
  • Employees tend to specialize
  • Projects are quicker since that is their job
  • More procedures and bureaucracy 

The Harwood Design, Co. . . . Half freelancer, Half Agency. The best of BOTH worlds! 

We are essentially the best of both worlds. Designing websites and other materials is our full-time so it's easy to get ahold of us (and by us I mean Maddie); we have low-overhead so we are able to keep our prices down; we are generalists, but if we need a specialist for whatever reason we have a network of affiliates that can assist; we believe in complete transparency when it comes to pricing, billing, and reporting ; we are structured where we need to be but try to be as flexible as possible;

Really! Harwood Design, Co. is the best of both worlds! Contact us today to learn how we can serve you! 

Spread the Love!
