Narrowing down the best business in an industry can be tricky, especially when it comes to Web Design and Development Companies. The most important factor for one person might be neglible to another, and vice versa. With web design and development, aesthetics, price, ongoing service, and other factors all play different roles, and one aspect can stand out among the rest for you and something else for your neighbour. So how do we define who is the best?
Business is not a finite thing, in fact, if business were a sporting match, it would be a draw with endless overtime. There is no official way to measure who is better. Or is there? We have business awards, design awards and a number of other ways to measure who is best, but these are still finite and somewhat subjective things within the infinite.
The best way to decide is by reframing the question – or adding to the end of it – Ask not “Who is the best Website Design Company?” but “Who is the best Website Design Company for me and my business?”
Which company will be the best for you depends on your needs and circumstances. What’s your criteria for partnering with a web designer? What do you want them to do for you?
One of the most important parts of teaming up with a company is working with people who believe what you believe! You can usually feel that in your gut. And from my experience, I would say trust your instinct! It’s easy in an online world to bend the truth or manipulate Google’s Search Engine Results Pages (or SERP). But it is getting harder to do. Consumers want trust from their providers, whether that be from their mechanic, their power company, or theor website design team.
Below are six of the most popular design and digital marketing companies that do business in Invercargill, New Zealand.
At CSL Design they like to combine professional and affordable, to ensure that their customers receive the highest quality website within their budget. They are focussed on providing a friendly, open and stress-free service.
CSL Design offers a wide range of design solutions including, web design, graphic design, and online marketing. While the business itself is located in Southland, Invercargill but they say their design services are not only for the locals but for the whole of New Zealand. They are a friendly group and do not mind any questions no matter how simple they may be. CSL offers FREE consultations during normal business hours so it’s easy to find out if their services are a good fit.
Studio 8 is a relatively new web design business in Invercargill as I write this. Unfortunately, none of the links on their website appear to be working so it is a work in progress. Their website appears to be under construction at this time, but keep an eye out for when it’s finished.
Emotive is an eclectic mix of creative, strategic and technical minds. They are based in Invercargill, New Zealand and specialise in website development, branding, and graphic design.
Emotive Design promises they will work with you, one on one, from beginning to end. They claim they will work way more hours than you are paying them to work in order to make your next project a success if that’s what it takes to do it right because they take pride in their work.
Emotive Design makes it their priority to understand your business needs and what makes you unique. They listen, apply creativity, and are passionate about delivering solutions that provide a real return on investment for their clients.
Big or small, your business is important to you, and therefore important to them. They approach all projects with the same simple yet effective process: Listen. Think. Create.
Webstudio–also known as Invercargill Web Design–says they are Website Specialists in Invercargill. Ooooh but don’t let their name fool you! Invercargill Web Design is actually based in Queenstown… If that doesn’t bother you, it is only a couple of hours up the road from Invercargill, then they may be the right fit for you.

So which Web design and digital marketing company that based in Invercargill, is the best for you and your business? Well… That depends on what you’re looking for.
CSL Design, Emotive Design, and GraphX all aim to do full-service offering to handle any level of marketing and web design. From managing social media to building a brand new website they say they can do it. Webstudio and Flat Out appear to be more focused on the web side of things. That makes them good options if you are looking to go fully digital and don’t need traditional marketing campaigns.
If you’re looking to partner with a Web Design Company for your online marketing endeavours, it’s worth taking the time to research each of these businesses and other Invercargill-based design and marketing companies. Look over their website. If the site seems easy to use, chances are they will be a good fit. One tip is to check right at the bottom of their website and looks for the “Copyright ©” info. If it says 2014, chances are they may be a bit out of touch. Read up on their services, and testimonials. Ultimately if their style and tone match what you want for your own business, they may be worth talking to. Taking time to find that right fit and work with credible, reliable businesses can save time and trouble later on. So it’s worth the effort!Back
