Feeling like you’ve lost confidence in the work that’s being done? Not sure you’d recommend them? Web development is complex, there’s no two ways about it. So it’s not surprising that agencies often end up letting down their clients, especially if they’ve promised a solution on a platform they don’t specialise in.
Offering development solutions in Shopify, Big Commerce, WordPress & Magento means developers with broad experiences frequently don’t have the qualifications and experiences to solve technical challenges
I want more innovation and ideas
"You guys are meant to be the eCommerce experts, you should be telling me!” Not getting suggestions or insights on how to improve things? Developers just saying “yes” and not challenging you on other solutions to your requests? An eCommerce agency should be at the cutting edge of retail, leading with qualified ideas on increasing conversion rates, growing traffic and providing operational efficiencies.
I want better communication
Wish your agency were more local and that you had more face-to-face contact? Want someone to talk to you in plain, straight-talking English for once? If your agency isn’t available when you need them, dodging your calls and replying days after you contact them then something’s amiss and your agency may not value your business as much as you’d want them too.
We've outgrown them - they aren't the right fit for us anymore
Slow progress? Missing out on commercial opportunities? Suspect they don’t have a big enough team? If the development work is outsourced to freelancers or a global team and the quality of the work isn’t there and not moving quick enough then it could be time to move on.
