You are someone who needs to have a web site built or have your site managed. You may not have a lot of money to spend. You might also be a company that has lots of it. You want a site that will change and grow, and you want someone reliable to manage it all, with little supervision. Or, you might have a designer in-house but little expertise in actually constructing it from an idea. You want someone smart and funny, not an algorithm. You want to be able to call and say hi, could you please do x, and could you do it yesterday. You want them to return your call(s). You want someone responsive to your need and is polite and understanding, and can elaborate, explain, and define better than you can. You need a specific thing, or something with a broad brush. You do not want a large company, with a hierarchy of specific engineers to do x and y, where something could get lost in the flow. You want someone with experience, tolerant of your idiosyncrasies and willing to bend the rules. You want someone to lead you out of the morass of the incredible maze of conflicting conundrums that is the internet/web/acrnonymic black hole.
