If you're wondering whether you should go with a big city agency or a local Gold Coast web design company we'd like to put forward a few reasons in favour of selecting local.
A local Gold Coast Web Development company is better positioned to understand the nuances of the area and will have experience at helping businesses like yours succeed online and increasing your local online presence. The Gold Coast is unlike any other city in Australia and outside companies can fail to understand what makes it tick.
A Gold Coast based web designer is able to offer you better and more reliable support. Ongoing support after your website is live is a must. If something goes wrong with the website or there's something you're not happy about the maintenance you may need will be taken care of quickly, and if neccessary the local web design company can meet you at your premises and go through the site page by page to ensure your satisfaction. They can also been on hand to offer training at launch time to make sure your staff are 100% comfortable with the maintenance of the website moving forward.
A local Web Design business will also have access to local resources and business connections such as photographers, models, writers etc. These local connections can work in your favour in ensuring you get competitive rates and reliable talent.
A Gold Coast web design company must maintain its reputation to stay in business. Any bad experiences will result in damage to their reputation through bad online reviews not to mention bad word of mouth, so they should have more than enough motivation to keep you the customer satisfied.
Selecting a local web design business makes a lot of sense you can organise face to face meetings with little notice, take advantage of the fact that they've helped businesses very similar to yours achieve, can offer outstanding support, can utilise their local network and know that they have a high level of accountability.
