Your website is an investment and an asset. Just like how regular software updates to your phone keep it running smoothly, websites also require regular maintenance and updates. Hiring an agency can help you balance form and function, ensuring that your website gets the proper maintenance and optimisations needed to run smoothly and securely.
Suppose you want to build a simple website — all you need is information pages with contact information. In this case, a drag and drop website builder will do just fine. However, with every new design or functional element you add on, the back end code gets heavier. Over time, without proper optimisation, this can lead to serious performance issues such as slow load times, page errors and gaps in security.
Some may recommend hiring a web agency based overseas for cheaper costs. In cases of emergencies such as a website form not working or a hacked website, time is of the essence for debugging and restoring your website. If you are looking to work with an overseas agency, do remember to take time zones into account as this may affect their response time. On the other hand, hiring a Singapore agency often means that it is faster and easier to make updates and changes.
