It will come as no surprise that investing in a partnership with a digital agency can require a higher level of investment initially than that of a freelancer.
Freelancers usually have lower overheads as a result of independent working, minimal staff expenses and often no permanent office space.
A freelancer is able to work anywhere, anytime, and will usually specialise in a single discipline like marketing, UX, design etc. If you’re project is missing a particular skill, a freelancer may be the way to go.
Larger teams may have larger overheads but they do find it easy to make efficiencies in both time and money through robust process development and implementation.
An agency is a collection of a distinct teams of specialists. At Deep Blue Sky, everyone has a specific part to play in the successful completion of a project. These range from digital strategy, to design and development, and the glue that holds the whole thing together; project management.
In larger projects, this can be a huge benefit. A unified team working together, on a well defined process to build a solution to your unique brief means knowledge is shared quickly, communication is clear and challenges are overcome rapidly.
