There are many advantages to hiring a Designer / Developer Company that is a locally-based company with all services carried out in-house. A website for many businesses may be their main or only sales funnel and while it may seem cheaper on paper to select an offshore company, over the long run it may be more economical to hire a consultancy native to your country. Here are some reasons to choose a local design firm.
Same time zone
One of the obvious advantages to choosing a Nigerian Web Designer / Developer Company is that they will be in the same time zone as you. This is extremely helpful when you need immediate feedback or there is a problem with the website that requires urgent attention.
Conversant with local SEO
By choosing a Nigerian Web Designer / Developer Company, they may also have access to locally-based SEO consultants which has several implications for Nigerian SEO. It is easier for a native to choose keywords that reflect the local dialect, slang and colloquialisms, copywriting is best done by a local who has a deeper understanding of Nigerian specific spellings and idioms and existing relationships will be established with local directories and sites for link building.
Understanding of the local culture
Another advantage to commissioning web designers based in Nigeria is that they will have a firm awareness and understanding of the local culture, nuances and other factors that may influence the design process such as the navigational structure, copywriting and layout. Ideally you want to pick a design firm whose design principles are determined by their understanding of the Nigerian market.
Awareness of Nigerian domain strategies and hosting
A Nigerian-based Web Designer / Developer Company will naturally be in a better position to advise you of the best domain strategy. For example, an agency based overseas may not be aware of how to apply for a Nigerian top level Domain Extension i.e ‘.com.ng’ – this is quite specific to this region. In addition, a Nigerian Company may able to provide local web hosting which is also beneficial to local SEO.
When a contract is signed for a website, you may pay a deposit and the balance upon completion – once you have tested the functionality of the site and done a visual inspection. However, not all web design projects run that smoothly. If you hire a Nigerian Web Designer / Developer Company and run into any problems, they will be subject to state or federal laws and you will be given consumer protection under that legislation.
