The Benefit of a Good Website.
All your potential customers need to access your website is a computer with an Internet connection and web browser. Ensuring your website is properly designed to display correctly on any of a number of browsers and device types is key to how your prospective customers perceive the quality of your business.
Your website is only the beginning of what you do; if the content is wrong, if there is no way to collect visitor details or take orders, it is incomplete. It needs to be backed up by a strong marketing programme, from logo design onwards. That’s where we come in.
Who Could Design Your Website?
With the worldwide spread of the Internet it is possible to employ people on the other side of the world to do work for you. They will offer website design, graphic design, and copywriting services to fill your web pages, all done with low pricing. Problem is, they don’t understand either you or the locale in which you work and this will be reflected in the cultural differences that will quickly be apparent to your customers. You also have no control over the web designers who are doing this work.
While it is tempting to reduce your costs by outsourcing web content and design, their language skills and approach to your website development will certainly impact your business negatively, telling your prospects that your work is not your own, and reducing the chance of a local company or individual being interested in your services.
Why Should You Use A Local Designer?
The need for your website to directly reflect your business and the people behind the business is critical, accurately reflecting the local business climate and their culture. When there is so much competition out there not only for your business but to get your website in front of your customer base, you have to choose a website designer that understands all these aspects. Attracting local custom requires you to look and feel local, showing a complete understanding of their needs. It also shows your concern for hiring locally, demonstrating a contribution to that same community.
With respect to managing your website over time, it is much easier to stay in regular contact with a local firm - there should be no time zone differences, cultural disconnects, and you ought to be able to work with the entire team and not just an intermediary. Correctly interpreting your needs and putting them online in a timely and accurate manner is the only way for your investment to work efficiently. It is about ongoing commitment to excellence - website development is never about a one-time delivery of product.
