Wollongong Web Design Companies Cannot Compete With India & Philippines
With so many "freelancing" portal websites popping up all over the place it is becoming increasingly more difficult to compete with such countries as
India & Philippines.
Some of these major portals such as Elance, Freelancer and Odesk are slowly taking away work from agencies in developed countries.
John from eVenture a wollongong web design agency says, "These countries have prodominantly dominated the outsourcing market as they have a
low cost of living and but maintain a high level of education, making them ideal."
"We simply cannot compete with such companies. Some of these companies offer virtual assistants to companies for only $600 per month, and they
are good! I mean what is an Australian business supposed to do?"
One such virtual staffing company, has been expanding extremely rapidly and has the GFC to thank for this sudden increase.
Many businesses are turning to outsourcing because they simply cannot afford the cost of employees from their own country. When you can save upto
70%, why wouldn't you?
With a already small market in the Illawarra region, many of these businesses are beginning to close down as it is simply not affordable anymore.
It will be interesting to see where the industry goes from here. Will all websites be made overseas in the future?
