Basingstoke, UK (PRWEB UK) 7 July 2012
Website designers are often used by businesses rather than employing staff directly, as many businesses are looking at keeping their costs and overheads down in order to weather the recession. This is the case for many businesses at the moment and why Marketing Quotes was approached in March by a leading weight loss company. The idea was to get a website re-design, however as redundancies were called without warning, the choice to find a new website design agency was needed.
A spokesperson from the weight loss company commented 'we have found that business is really good, however we need to keep ourselves slim and outsource where possible. Despite our profits being high this year, we are being cautious as you never know what is round the corner in these uncertain times. VAT could change again, taxes rise or our internal costs go up due to changes to reduce the nations debts, so we need to air on the side of caution.'
Anne Richards (who works with Marketing Quotes) added 'we are happy to help out, it is sad that there are more redundancies and more people without work; however there is no point employing people just for the sake of it, there needs to be a business need and if companies can get the same or better results by outsourcing, then that is what they should do. When it comes to marketing there are tens of thousands of marketing companies around offering great design and affordable prices. We do advise shopping around for website design prices, as some designers can be very expensive (as they are private businesses, they have their profit margins too)'
