Are you thinking about developing your website? Whilst you will always have more than enough choices when it comes to web designers in the UK, the advantages of working with a local web designer far outweigh the advantages of working with a web designer from further afield. 
There are many reasons why businesses in Bristol are choosing local web designers over those who are based further away, and if you aren’t sure of which one to go for, here are the top five reasons why you should make use of a local web designer
 

1. Better – and easier – communication 

It can be a challenge to communicate your wants and desires for your website, so meeting the company you want to work with face to face will mean that you stand a far better chance of explaining the vision you have for your website. 
 
The fact that you are in close proximity to your web designer also means that you will have a chance to get to know each other as people - and it is always far easier to work with people you have a more personal relationship with. 
 
 

2. Get more references 

If you work with someone based in another area, it can be difficult to get the references you need in order to check their credibility. References are important if you want to see examples of their work and find out how they deal with their customers. Ideally the company you are looking at working with should have a portflio page and you should be able to contact any of the companies for references. 
 
With a local web designer, you can quickly get in touch with both present and past clients so you can find out what you need about the quality of the designer’s work, their work ethics, and more. 
 

3. Establish stronger local connections 

Even though there is now a lot of emphasis on 'going global', the reality is that your local community will still play a big role in your success.  
 
By hiring a local web designer, you can build a mutually beneficial relationship with another business in your area, and this may even lead to more exposure for your business with other local enterprises and clients. If, on the other hand, you work with a web designer from elsewhere, you can't take advantage of this unique connection. 
 

4. The local web designer knows the local audience 

When you work with a local web designer, they will no doubt be knowledgeable about the local area – and locally-based clients as well. They can create and develop a website which is thoroughly geared towards the local market you are targeting, and this can go a long way in enhancing your exposure. 
 

5. It opens the doors for collaboration 

As already mentioned, you can forge a mutually beneficial relationship with your web designer in that you can each promote the other in the local community.  
 
Think about it – if the web designer does a good job, then you wouldn’t hesitate to refer them to another business, and they, in turn, wouldn’t hesitate in promoting your business as well.
