Due to large number of people offering website design services in Birmingham, there is always a bargain to be found.
Web design companies in Birmingham are in a very competitive market and some offer some great deals at various times of year.
People who are just starting out in a career building custom design websites will often offer their services at a very reasonable rate, basically to build up a portfolio. Once they have established themselves they then tend to increase amount they charge.
I have even heard about one person who for a very short period of time was building websites for free! This is an extreme case though.
A friend of mine called Dave was looking to have an internet prescence for his small business a number of years ago. He did not have a huge budget, however was looking for a person or company to create him a professional looking website which would be search engine friendly.
