Support Local Business

Northampton Web Design

Why should you choose a local Web Design company?


One question people often ask themselves when starting a business, or once they have decided they want a website is, who do I choose to do the work?  You may think, should I choose a local Northampton web design company or should I choose a large national company or even a London based webdesign company?

Poppy Design Studio do web design work for clients all across the UK and even abroad. As a small business, what makes us special and unique is how we deal with our clients and how we perform our project completion. Now it isn’t 100% necessary to have a face-to-face meeting or handover of the project but we do love doing this when we can. If someone needs web design in Northampton or even web design in Leicester or the surrounding area, meeting in person can make the whole process so much easier and more enjoyable. We love to be on hand to offer advice, help with whatever we can and just basically be the one resource our client really needs for all their online business needs.


There are many companies out there, and choosing the right one for you is important. Even if that isn’t us, you can rely on us guiding you to the best place. We are passionate about what we do, and because we love it so much, our only aim is to provide the customer with what they need. We find the smaller local businesses provide this a lot better than larger impersonal companies. We talk to you at a level you can understand. We are normal people not nameless staff from a LARGE advertising company that can deal with ALL your needs and has that lovely large white smile ( you know the type we are talking about here folks 😉 ). We approach you and talk to you to find out what you actually want to achieve, we show you what can help your business and it costs nothing to talk… If you’re stuck on a problem, and don’t know where to start?  Give us a call because that’s what makes the small local business different..we have the time to listen.  Even though we get busy with clients, we make the time to listen and help you.  If we say we will call back, then we will.  It’s those little things that make choosing a local company a big winner in our eyes.

Benefits of choosing a local web design company:

  • Face to face meetings
  • If any problems arise you are close to their location so you can visit them
  • See or talk to other local businesses your web designer has worked for e.g.: For our Web Design Northampton, we have worked with Sanctuary of Beauty, 365 Plumbing and Swedish Connections to name a few.  These are local companies that you can ask about our services. You can see their testimonials. Referral is always the best way to choose a company to work with.
  • Easier to pay the company via bank or cheque.
  • On hand and local if you have any problems after the handover or throughout your monthly maintenance.

Every decent web design company out there will offer you free advice in the first instance. It costs them nothing to spend time chatting to you to give you the best advice for your needs.

Even when choosing a local business to use for your web design needs, you do have to still decide carefully who you are going to choose. Here are some tips on what you need:

  • Make sure the business is registered. You do not want to hire someone that works from their bedroom, doesn’t pay their taxes and is not a proper business. You’re putting your business in their hands, you need to know you are buying from professionals that will handle your needs to the highest standard .
  • Research prices.  If it sounds too good to be true , it often is. If you are looking for cheap web design, then still remember that following, too low in price could mean you are dramatically decreasing the quality of work you are getting. You may not get all the legal forms to protect you and your work, it is worth checking into any company you choose, on their handover process, their quoting process and commitments from you and the business offering their services.
  • Work with someone you like – Common sense really, you need to make sure their is a connection between you and the web designer. If you’re not on the same page, it will be very hard for you to get out what you need from them.
