A fundamental change in approach or assumptions
It seems that our industry gravitates toward one of two methodologies. On one hand you have the slap it together discount agencies that put up a cookie-cutter design template and fill it with generic copy & stock images. Then on the other you have the high end marketing firms that deliver brilliant solutions for nothing less than 6 figures.
That leaves those with limited budgets and aspirations standing in the cold, terrified to even ask for an estimate, convinced already that they can't afford it. Some end up hiring a cutrate 'designer' on Craigslist or worse yet, they try to build their own site on Wix, 1&1 or GoDaddy and end up with an unprofessional solution that scares off potential legitimate customers in favor of a competitor who forked out the extra dough.
Where is that middle ground? How do you find quality at a good value?
Hint: Start by looking for a consultancy that's chock full of talent. Then ignore the ones with fancy views in Midtown, giant conference rooms and exotic art on the walls. You don't want to foot that bill!
Find one that leverages modern technology to collaborate and deliver from virtual offices, keeping overhead to almost nothing. You know with that firm that you're only paying for the talent and not the dog & pony show.
Take a good look at their work! Make sure the clients they've delivered for are not only satisfied, but they're reputable. Get honest recommendations from others who have seen the result of their deliveries.
Now that you have it narrowed down, take the time to talk to the consultant. See if they're someone you'd like to work with. Do they understand your business? Can they communicate their ideas in a way that makes sense to you?
