Working With a Web Development Agency vs Hiring In-House

If you’re going to be making consistent improvements to your site, why wouldn’t you hire in-house, rather than work with an agency? It’s a good question! Let’s take a look:


To properly support a digital product like a website, you need experienced expertise. Working with an agency like XWP gives you access to a pool of talent with specialized knowledge and a proven track record working with the WordPress ecosystem.

24-Hour Progress

When you work with a distributed agency like XWP, you will have the opportunity to work with specialists from around the world. This means progress is consistent—even outside of office hours!

Objective Perspective

An agency can provide an objective perspective on your website, and back it up with data. They can help you identify areas for improvement and provide unbiased feedback on your product’s features and design.


Working with an agency can be a more cost-effective option as you only pay for the time you need—there is no need for a consistent high-volume flow of work.

Supported Talent

Agencies like XWP invest in training and tooling, giving the team everything they need to be impactful. This removes the need for you to invest in your own licenses.

Scalability & Flexibility

Website management needs can vary over time, depending on factors such as website growth, seasonal fluctuations, or project requirements. Working with an agency provides an easy way of scaling your website team when you need to, accommodating changing demands by adjusting resources and services accordingly.
