THEY CAN MEET YOU FACE TO FACE
Never underestimate the importance of being able to speak with your web designer face to face. Sure, you can email and Skype with development agencies that are located outside of your area code, but sometimes you just have to sit down next to your developer and point to the thing that isn’t working.
THEY UNDERSTAND YOUR CLIENT BASE
Local web developers understand your client base because they probably are your client base. They live, work and consume in your region, which means they are aware of your competitors and will have a good idea of how to position your brand to gain some valuable market share.
