The Importance of Choosing a Local Web Design Company in Egypt

Apr 2nd 2015 at 10:55 PM

There are many benefits to hiring locally, especially when your web assets are concerned. While it is true that outsourced help also offers good value for a business, seeking help from local companies definitely has its unique advantages—and none of the horror stories often associated with failed outsourcing.

The Pitfalls of Outsourcing Web Design

Perhaps the biggest downside of outsourcing your web design project to an offshore company is that you risk exposing personal and confidential information. Can you really trust an offshore company with your data? If they do end up copying or selling your ideas, you will have very little legal recourse because they are not in Egypt.

Communication problems as well as cultural differences hinder can also development, leading to delays. Translating technical and design concepts can be complicated, and it’s even harder when you have to work with an offshore design firm that doesn’t speak your language. Misunderstandings will likely happen, and your web design project might be derailed. Outsourcing breeds misunderstanding because the communication lines are not as direct and clear as they should be. This is why it’s always a good idea to work with a local web design firm—an Egyptian company from the same culture and country—that understands your goals and needs.

Why Local is Better

Contracting a local web design company will likely be able to provide you with the level of service that your business needs, quite simply because they have the ability to meet with you personally and are more familiar with the local demographic you are targeting. When choosing a local web design company, find one that takes time to get to know each of their clients and takes note of their individual needs, rather than one that merely follows standard templates, "customized" to meet your needs. While there is nothing wrong about template designing, you will find it more beneficial to your business if you are able to develop a website that can be tweaked in every way to suit the very needs of your business at any point in your business cycle.

Hiring locally not only gives you the opportunity to work with professionals who are familiar with the audience that you are targeting, but also the advantage of establishing a stronger business relationship as you get to work with them more closely, compared to hiring off-shore providers. Local designers will also save you the trouble of spending a lot of money on international calls and other forms of communications in order to maintain contact with your off-shore provider.
