Searching for a Magento agency in Lancaster, UK that suits your requirements is not always simple. Using search engines to find agencies can often mean a series of false starts, wasting time and effort in the process. AgencyComparison’s free and intuitive comparison tool has been created to meet this issue, matching your business with the Magento agency in Lancaster, UK that suits it best. To go through our step-by-step guide below, begin by registering with AgencyComparison for free.
What are the Benefits of Comparing Agencies?
Comparison tools have created a level and competitive playing field for a range of services, with resulting benefits for suppliers and buyers. At AgencyComparison, we realised that the wants of a client and the capabilities of an agency do not always match one another, with one or both parties often becoming disappointed by a lack of results.
It is because of this that we developed our smart comparison platform. Unlike comparison tools for energy or insurance providers that look solely for the cheapest deal available, our comparison tool puts an emphasis on a well-matched client-agency relationship first and foremost. This is achieved by a variety of factors:
- Our use of AI, machine learning and data science.
- A thorough maintenance of accounts on our platform.
- Our years of experience working with agencies from a range of sectors.
- The intuitively simple design of our platform allowing buyers to search effectively.
By providing a competitive and fair platform, you may discover an exciting Magento agency in Lancaster, UK that is not as visible when using typical agency sourcing methods. Here are just some of the unique areas that agency comparison can develop for your business:
Will There Be More Agencies Available to Me?
Perhaps one of the more obvious benefits of using our agency comparison tool is the breadth of agencies that are available to you by doing so. By simply having more options to choose from, the likelihood of finding one that suits your requirements increases dramatically.
With more established agencies often having the most noticeable presence online, it is easy to assume that they will have the biggest impact on a project. This, however, is not always the case. The needs and expectations of clients vary widely. So, while the most well-known Magento agency in Lancaster, UK may have a proven history of as an effective supplier for a considerable amount of people, that may not be the case for your business. By providing as wide a selection to choose from as possible, your business can compare and contrast the individual merits of each agency with the unique demands of your project in mind. Whether this is an agency’s history, or its unique selling points, using our comparison tool provides a more balanced overview of your options. When placed side-by-side, you can quickly determine which agencies do and don’t work. By having agencies explain how they will approach your project, you can save time that might otherwise have been lost researching each agency or talking to them.
How does AgencyComparison Guarantee Effective Matching?
Another upshot that results from using AgencyComparison’s unique tool is that you have a significant amount of control over your relationship with your selected Magento agency in Lancaster, UK. From the tailored selection process that means you are able to choose the agencies that will most directly offer the most to your project, to relationship maintenance, we promise that clients will be satisfied with their supplier.
When an agency has been chosen for your project, you and your supplier will both receive a mutual NDA template. This is done so that your relationship is protected from the beginning. By guaranteeing that both parties are comfortable sharing their unique methods and thoughts with one another, the relationship can get off to as strong as start as is possible. Once this NDA template has been signed, we strongly recommend that this is then uploaded to our platform, for each party’s peace of mind.
If, for whatever reason, you are unsatisfied with the progress an agency has made on your project, this is not an issue either. Should this occur, we promise to mediate the relationship or, if required, find a replacement supplier. By having us mediate or switch over the contract, you do not need to worry about it being a drawn out process.
Will I have More Control by Comparing Agencies?
When searching for a Magento agency in Lancaster, UK through more typical routes, such as search engines or word of mouth, it is easy to commit to an agency without being told exactly what they will do for your project. When using AgencyComparison.com, you have considerably more insight into how each agency will approach your project and, resultantly, more control over the direction of the relationship.
By being able to compare and contrast agencies before making any contractual commitments, there is no need for risk or guesswork when it comes to picking an agency. Similarly, an agency’s work history and feedback is user-defined. So, unlike the very best reviews that will often be found on an agency’s website, all ratings are sourced from other projects they have taken on within AgencyComparison.com.
With the complex terminology and marketing jargon that it is easy to encounter when researching a Magento agency in Lancaster, UK, it can be a challenge to determine which is best suited to your project. When using AgencyComparison, your project comes first. By outlining your project in detail, any pitches you receive from your shortlisted agencies will address its requirements directly. This makes the selection process significantly easier. When an agency’s pitch directly discusses the ways in which your project will be managed, it is much easier to determine which agency is most likely to produce the best results.
Project-specificity in the selection process also means that you may discover smaller agencies that are just as effective despite not being as established as others. It may be, for example, that your project will benefit from the specialist approach of a smaller Magento agency in Lancaster, UK. This is especially true if your business works within an industry niche. Or, conversely, it may be better handled by the tried and tested, full service approach of a larger agency. In any case, when agencies are compared side-by-side, it is easier to determine who will add the most to your project.
Can I Manage More than One Agency?
AgencyComparison.com’s tracking capabilities allows users to manage a range of projects in the same place. This makes it easier to identify strengths and weaknesses of projects by being able to compare their varying progress. Simply visit the ‘Projects’ area of your account and go through each project’s progress reports in sequence.
The ability to manage all projects within a single platform also saves the time that can be easily lost in communicating the progress of projects to various departments. By being able to have the same team member monitor projects across IT, Digital or Tech-related agencies, for example, the combined benefit of a range of projects can be more readily identified whilst time is saved that might usually be lost relaying information in meetings or across emails. This means that, not only can the management process become more dependable across projects, but there can also be a significant reduction in labour costs.
How are Agencies Sourced?
By allowing agencies and clients to register with AgencyComparison.com for free, we ensure that agencies and buyers of all sizes have a platform to tender services. This means that, when searching for a Magento agency in Lancaster, UK, you will encounter a more varied range of suppliers beyond those that are more established. This accessibility also means that, just like comparison tools for other services, there is increased competitiveness amongst suppliers. With less-experienced agencies being able to directly compete with more popular suppliers, you unearth a much better deal than anticipated.
While there are a broad range of options when searching through AgencyComparison.com, our innovative comparison tool will only display those that are likely to suit your requirements. This is because each Magento agency in Lancaster, UK that comes up in your search is selected intelligently. Utilising AI, machine learning and data science, you will only discover those that are likely to be appropriate for your project.
How do I Begin Comparing Each Magento agency in Lancaster, UK?
Before comparing agencies, it is worth considering your budget and the service that you require. Your budget is of particular importance as this will have an influence over which agencies pitch for your project. With this in mind, having an in-depth understanding of your project’s requirements will make the selection process much simpler. This can be guaranteed by being as concise as possible in your project’s aims. So, if you have a tender for your project already, this is worth uploading to your account.

Add details to your profile

Search and shortlist agencies
After doing this, return to the home page, select a service from the drop down menu and then enter in your post code or city. Doing this will guarantee that every Magento agency in Lancaster, UK that fits your requirements is displayed.
Refine your search
Filtering your search can be an effective way to remove options that you may wish to avoid, such as those with low ratings or none at all. Similarly, it can be useful way to rediscover a Magento agency in Lancaster, UK that you had previously liked but did not remember to shortlist. Simply sort results alphabetically if you can remember the name of the supplier or search by keyword.
Explore and Shortlist your Favourite Agencies
To begin the next stage of your comparison, go through the profiles that interest you most. An agency’s rating, work history, feedback, and certificates are all worth consideration at this stage. Should you like the profile of a Magento agency in Lancaster, UK after looking over it, return to your search results and click ‘Add to Shortlist’ at the right of the profile. Once you have shortlisted an agency, they will be included within your comparison, meaning that you will receive quotes and pitches should they be interested in the project.
Create a project
To receive quotes from your shortlisted suppliers you must create a project. To do this, click ‘Projects’ at the top right of the home screen whilst signed in. Once this has been done, you will be on a page like the one above. From this page, click ‘Submit New Project’ from the menu bar along the left side of the screen. Once on this page, you will need to enter some details relating to your project:
- Minimum and maximum budget
- The project’s specific service requirements
- A proposed start date
- Details about your project – this can be in the box provided or, should you already have a tender, this can be attached as a document.
After inputting the details of your pitch, click ‘Submit’. This will then send an alert to your shortlisted agencies about your project. As pitches can take a while to prepare, it is advised that you have your email alerts enabled so you know when they have been received. Accounts will receive email alerts by default, so you will only need to change this if you disabled email alerts when signing up.
Select from pitches
To look through your proposals, simply visit your account’s ‘Projects’ area and then click on ‘Pending Proposals’ from the menu along the left. Once you arrive on this page, you will be able to go through the pitches you have received and accept or reject them at your own speed. Once a pitch has been accepted, it will show in your ‘Active Projects’ area. Within this area, there are a number of other features to take note of:
- Invoices – Manage the financial side of your relationship with a Magento agency in Lancaster, UK
- Leave Feedback – Detail your experiences with any agencies that you have worked with
- Project Reports – Analyse the results of your project
- Chat Conversations – Communicate with suppliers within AgencyComparison.com’
This management capability is particularly useful if you have a number of projects that you would like to manage side-by-side. By being able to track projects more routinely in our platform, it is much easier to identify issues and growth for yourself without needing to rely on an agency’s own reports.
Invite existing contacts
If you happen to have a shortlist within AgencyComparison.com but would like to compare an agency that does not have an account with us, you can sent them an invite to sign up. This is very useful during proposal selection where it is easier to compare offers in the same place. It also means that, should you prefer an agency’s proposal that does not already have an account with us, your relationship is still protected and can be managed within our platform. This can make future tracking of your project’s progress more straightforward and switching agencies simpler should there be any issues down the line.
How much does it cost?
When clients use AgencyComparison.com there are no costs, hidden or otherwise. Without any kind of subscription costs, you are able to manage every step of a project with a supplier without any time or budget limitations. Simply sign up below, create a project and manage any pitches that you receive.
Once a pitch has been accepted, projects can still continue to be managed without any costs incurred for the buyer. When a contract has been secured between you and a supplier, the agency will be charged a 10% monthly fee of their service costs. This will, however, not affect the price of your service.
What is Management Procurement?
If preferred, AgencyComparison.com is also able to manage your agency procurement for you for a small 10% charge of your agreed monthly fee. This is particularly useful if you are not familiar sourcing a Magento agency in Lancaster, UK or would just rather cut out the middle man.

Unlike the range of lead gen platforms and directories that exist for agencies, AgencyComparison.com is the first and only website that allows clients to comprehensively compare suppliers. As a platform that both suppliers and clients can create accounts on for free, there are some agencies that consider AgencyComparison.com as a lead source. It is not, however, a lead gen platform. This is because, whilst lead gen platforms exist to sell as many leads as possible to suppliers without considering their quality, our platform exists to supplement the sourcing and managing of agency contracts.
Our platform has been conceived with the protection and development of the client-agency relationship at its core. By locating all of the crucial elements of a project within our platform, such as reports and any conversation between clients and suppliers, any and all developments can be easily identified. With everything located in the same place, the risk of miscommunication or confusion can be reduced dramatically.
Other than the comparison and progress-tracking capabilities of our platform, it has also been designed with user interface in consideration. One way that this has been ensured is the division found in the platform between sourcing agencies in the ‘Shortlists’ area and managing shortlisted agencies in the ‘Projects’ area. This means that your search for a Magento agency in Lancaster, UK, for example, can be done in a distinctly separate area away from any other ongoing projects you might be undertaking.
