Tempted to look outside the USA for web development? You aren’t the first to think about exploring foreign web design. But as many have found, going overseas for your company’s website can create all kinds of unforeseen difficulties and amount to a real headache.
In recent years, some American companies have experimented with taking their web development overseas. And while there may be certain apparent advantages that draw the attention of American business there, sticking with USA web development has its own, substantial benefits.
Many of the companies who search outside the national borders for web design find that they’re far better off looking for a developer here at home instead.
U.S. Web Developers Remains at the Forefront in Web Design
As the global marketplace stands today, no other country can compete with America’s IT talent pool. The top firms and companies are based in America, which is known for its creative and technical talents and for being a world leader in software development. Think of the software that powers your world — from Apple and Microsoft to Adobe, Facebook, Gmail, and Twitter, etc.) — and you’ll understand why the U.S. retains its crown as the king of web development around the world.
Web design is still among the most sought-after, skill-specific, and highly respected professions in the IT industry, and it takes real creative talents to do it right. Even if it’s possible to find cheap labor in other countries, your foreign-made website won’t hold up to your competitor’s, which will likely have been developed in the U.S.
The U.S. unquestionably remains the biggest nexus of top-quality IT talent. By choosing USA web development, you elect to work with the very best of the best. After all, your business can’t rely on subpar output.
Get Better Communication and Customer Service with USA Web Development
Communication woes are probably the #1 complaint from American companies trying to work with non-American web developers. Language barriers, semantic variations in the meaning of words or phrases, and differences in regional dialects can all present problems.
USA Web Development Doesn’t Require Time Zone Gymnastics
You also need to consider the time zone difficulties presented when you hire a company in another part of the world. To compensate for the time zone gap, you end up having to stay up all night just to functionally communicate. Managing a project long-distance, in a different time zone with a person who barely speaks English, is a recipe for disaster.
USA Web Development Provides the Best Emergency Response
At ClearTech Interactive, we know from experience that unforeseen website problems can pop up at any moment, and when they happen, you need them addressed ASAP.
But if you’re working with overseas providers, your business hours will differ significantly from theirs. Tending to a web design emergency with any urgency is almost impossible if you have to stay up all night just to reach someone ten hours later.
What happens when you need support because your website crashes in the middle of the day? Will your site have to stay down all day until you can access your provider at 2 a.m., in another part of the world — and then they take another 24 hours to fix it?
English Language & SEO Troubles
Search Engine Optimization (SEO) and inbound marketing are inherently language-driven, and both are also integral to USA web development. You can imagine the difficulties that American companies encounter when depending on other countries or cultures to expertly apply keyword strategy — or to write webpage copy — when the designers are anything less than proficient in American English. If you’re catering to a largely American customer base, you need professional USA web development.
