Are you a small Perth business requiring WordPress Web Design? Thinking of outsourcing to an overseas company?
Reasons why you should consider to take on a local Perth WordPress Web designer.
There are a number of small Perth based businesses who tend to outsource their web design projects to ‘cheaper’ overseas web design companies. Whilst this may seem like a better option to fit the budget, it may land up being far more costly in the long run.
It’s tempting to cut costs by outsourcing your work to web designers advertising through the internet, but there are a number of reasons why you’ll be more satisfied with the final results when you use a local web designer based in Perth.
Your website should be able to reflect an understanding of the Perth culture and the local business climate. And, that’s not going to happen if your web designer is based elsewhere. There will more likely cultural differences and language barriers.
A local Perth web designer has roots in your community and understands the commerce and people in Perth. The cultural feel of a particular city is unique; your local business caters to that special Perth characteristic and your website should reflect that same feeling.
Why Hiring A Local Perth Web Designer Is Good Business Practice
Your clientele is composed of local people who support their local community. It makes sense that you would do the same for your business needs. It is far easier to work with a web designer who is locally based, easier to be in direct contact and easier to build on a strong working relationship by meeting face to face. There are no cultural barriers, you speak the same language and you work within the same time zone.
Often, a remote web designer will simply disappear after the original project has been met (or even not) and the business owner is usually left without a way to address outstanding or new arising issues. That won’t happen when you’re working with a local web designer. Their reputation is based on references and the good old fashioned word of mouth referral as well as their expertise. Local web designers will also be available for ongoing work and and consultation.
This gives small businesses peace of mind knowing that they can easily be in direct contact with their web designer whenever they are in need of assistance with their website.
“After a terrible experience with trying an overseas company to do our website (13 months and no finished product) – Nicole from PlusWeb saved us! She provided an efficient and friendly service and always took into account our brief, ideas and feedback. Nicole kept in touch with us throughout the whole process and ultimately designed and produced a website that we are really happy with, in a timely fashion!”
