For many years, we have been looked down upon, ignored and thrown to the side like an old teddy bear, by potential clients and the blue chips of the UK for our online marketing and web design services. 100 page tender proposals have been tossed aside, some of the most creative graphic and brand design not even looked at.
Why, are we that bad? Have we failed to deliver? Is someone tarnishing our reputation. The answer is a clear and precise NO.
There has been only 1 true explanation to this, Spin Box offices are not based in London and do not hold a 020 telephone number!
A surprising and shocking explanation, where many people have said clients could not be so fickle. However it has proven itself on many sad situations in our history.
So we wanted to explain the benefits on not being a London based web agency, as opposed to the negatives which seem to crop into many potential clients minds.
Pricing & Cost
The first and foremost is Pricing and Cost of website design and development. As we are not located in Central London, we are lucky enough not to be paying £5000 a week in office rent, nor be paying a £35,000 salary for a receptionist, these HUGE cost savings do cut down our overheads which in tern help determine our web pricing we provide to our clients.
However, this does not mean we are cheap, we do tend to be on the pricey side. We pride ourselves on our work, and we take great effort and invest in a lot of time, as well as ensure we have great people working at Spin Box, so when it comes to cost and pricing we are competitive but do really provide value for what you receive in return.
We want to work with clients who take their investment seriously, so if you spend £20,000 with us on your online strategy and website, then we expect you to see a return of £100,000 at the minimum in the first year. But we do want clients that are prepared to invest in a great service and product, so for potential clients on a low budgets, we are afraid that Spin Box might not be for you.
We are never far away
Second Benefit is we are never far away - Our business and services are digital, which allows for geography free trading. Lucky us could be working from a beach in Dubai, but we are only 1 hour from London Euston, based in the centre of England in Northampton.
What we do always like to do is visit our clients, to ensure that your time is not wasted in travel. But more importantly, if we see you at work in your environment, it gives us a better understanding of you, your business and the right solutions that we should be developing for you. So if you need to sit down with us and work through designs and strategy, we would be with you just as fast as if travelling across the centre of London.
Face to face meeting in our opinion is very important, to understand each others objectives and goals as well as getting to know someone is critical in building the right solutions and executing them successfully. As digital as our world is, we always put personal meetings as a priority with our clients.
If you fancy a day out of the big smoke, then we are only 1 hour away up the M1 or on the train and would be great for you to visit us too and get to know us better also.
