In this digital day and age, you might think that it doesn’t matter – after all, files can be transmitted instantly over the Internet, and a good creative team is going to do good work no matter where they are, right?
That notion certainly does apply to a certain degree, but there are still advantages to finding and working with a local, Milwaukee web design and internet marketing group. Here are just a few of the most important:
You can get more info before the work begins. You don’t want just anyone working on your next business website, and you certainly don’t want strangers who don’t know your company devising your online marketing plan. Even in the digital age, there is nothing like a face-to-face meeting to get a better sense of what you’re trying to accomplish, not to mention check out the credentials and working style of a vendor you are thinking of working with.
You’ll enjoy faster (and better) customer service. There is a lot to be said for working with someone who is on the same schedule you are (or at least in the same time zone), and can relate to the problems and challenges you deal with locally. If you doubt the wisdom of that statement, just call a customer service representative in India and ask them to solve a problem that someone who is local would understand in an instant. The farther you get from home, the bigger the communication challenges become.
You’re likely to enjoy better long-term value. Obviously, you can sometimes save money by working with a web designer who’s far away, but does that necessarily translate into a better value, or a bigger return on investment? To put it another way, it’s usually worth it to spend a little more on your website if you’re going to get better designs, better service, and a stronger Internet marketing plan as a result. If you want to get the best, then work with the best.
A lot of companies would like you to believe that business web design is a simple matter of putting good-looking layouts and a bit of HTML coding together. The reality, though, is that the more you know your creative team – and the more they know about your business – the better the end result is going to be.
