3 Reasons to Work With a Local Web Agency

Communication with WDG project managers and designers

When working with a local web agency, you have access to a plethora of benefits that you wouldn’t have otherwise. Sometimes, proximity can make all the difference. Think about it: would you rather trust your website endeavors to an agency 100 miles away, or a local, expert-driven firm just down the road from you?

WDG—a Washington DC web agency with offices in Alexandria, Virginia and in ChinaTown Washington, DC*—has made its name over the last 10 years for crafting fantastic website solutions. We have talented folks who are truly committed to building great working relationships with all of our clients. This commitment has made WDG a trusted web design and development agency in the Washington DC area.

So, what are the benefits of partnering with a local web agency?

Face-to-Face Communication

Who likes dealing with customer service reps only over the phone? I know I don’t. It’s more challenging to communicate your problem than to actually getting it resolved! Working with web agencies is the same way.

Explaining your business’s conceptual ideas and goals can be tough. Now, imagine if you had to explain those complex ideas virtually, whether via email or phone. It never pans out well. Here at WDG, for example, we hold in-person kickoff sessions geared toward learning about your business and discussing your goals. These in-person meetings ensure direct, effective communication. It doesn’t hurt if the agency you’re working with has awesome team collaboration.

Cozily situated by the Potomac River in the historic Old Town Alexandria (Our HQ), as well as in Washington, DC’s Chinatown district, WDG is in a prime location to easily serve a multitude of companies, organizations, foundations, and associations. This makes face-to-face communication a pleasurable breeze!

Hand-Picked Talent

I get a lot of questions about the pros and cons about outsourcing web design and development work. Sure, it might be a good way of cutting costs. But you usually get what you pay for. When you partner with local shops, like our Washington DC web agency, you’re guaranteed to have a high-quality, hand-picked team of experts working directly with you every step of the way.

Bringing Your Ideas to Life, How You Envision Them

We worked with the Marylany based Clark Construction to redesign the Atkinson site.

In case of Maryland Based Clark Construction Group, we had the opportunity to have several on-site meetings both at the WDG HQ and Clark Construction Groups HQ during the Atkinson Construction Drupal redesign project. Having direct access to your web agency helps solidify the assurance of bringing your digital ideas to life. We analyze everything from messaging and brand perception to transforming your needs into concrete WordPress or Drupal solutions. By outsourcing web design and development, you can risk having your vision lost in translation.


Interested in getting in touch with our team here at WDG? Stop by our offices in Old Town, Alexandria or Chinatown in DC! You can also just drop us a line! We will work with you every step of the way and help you exceed your goals with a powerful new user experience!
