CMS Website Design Outsourced?
Did you know that many of the Website Design companies offering you “CMS Website Design” are not even in the USA or Canada? But actually places like India?
What does this mean to you and your CMS Website Design Project?
Though creative people live everywhere in the world, when it comes to your CMS Website Design project there are some things to keep in mind:
You’ll need Live Phone support when you are learning how to maintain your CMS Website Design. Though outsourcing support may have it’s place you don’t have time to adapt to the Language barriers we’ve all experienced.
You will need Live support that understands your Market. There are many business models in America and Canada that don’t exist at this level in other parts of the world so are hard to comprehend by outsourced companies. Often the best they can do is give you generic answers that don’t apply to your unique situation. Shipping, Tax, Copyrights or even Grammar.
It also helps if the Live support is compatible with your time zone and the time of day you set aside to work on the development of your CMS Website Design with your Website Designer.
CMS Design Development
As I mentioned earlier, there are very creative people all over the world but when looking at what some outsourced companies offer many seem to be template systems advertised as “Custom CMS Website Design”. The term “Custom” has a rather loose meaning in different parts of the world, “Custom” could be a set of templates pre-made by their company to streamline their offering and allowing their support to give pre-set answers.
A True Custom CMS Website Design should be Your idea brought to life with the help and skills of an expert CMS Website Designer who understands your needs and Market.
Simply making a payment to an outsourced CMS Website Design company can be a challenge to say the least. Many online payment processing companies avoid allowing their services to be used by some of the commonly outsourced countries. With most folks knowing to Never send money via Wire services you’re left with using your Credit Card through an unknown processor or sending a check that could take Weeks to clear while giving dangerous information to unknown sources.
In general, American financial laws do not apply to commonly outsourced countries so getting any type of refund is highly unlikely if you are not satisfied or find that they are misusing your payment information. At the least you’ll experience hassles with your Credit Card company while trying to get those funds returned with no guarantee of success.
When dealing with American or Canadian Design Firms making payments are through well known, secure payment processors like Paypal and Refunds are FAR easier with a LOT more “Legal OOmph” to enforce them.
Though dealing with companies that outsource often seems Cheaper, in the long run they could cost you much more. It’s usually the best policy to deal with Website Design firms in your own country allowing for coverage by your laws as well as a smoother one-on-one relationship to develop between you and your Designer to get the very most out of your unique idea. Always ask where your Website Designer is located and see if that matches up with your needs and expectations.
