Locations Affect The Cost

Web design and internet marketing agencies are everywhere in the world. Are there any differences between choosing the one down the street or the ones on a different continent? 

In this section, we summarize the pros and cons of this section and how it affects your website’s final cost.

Local Level 

When I talked about local, I meant any web designers you can reach them within an hour for example Singapore.


  • You get to meet your developers face-to-face regularly to steer meetings, deal with problems, much faster. 
  • Much more comfortable with your choices when you can meet the team that will transform your online vision into reality. 
  • They may have local connections and local knowledge that will be valuable to your businesses. 
  • Get access to a broader business community in your country, and they are prepared to refer them brings an obvious advantage to your business. 


  • One significant factor that might hinder your choice is the hefty price tag when choosing a local web design or internet marketing agency. 

National Level 

When I talked about the national level, I meant any web designers you can reach them within a few hours for example Malaysia or Thailand.


  • The national level gives you more excellent and variety of choices, a higher likelihood of specialism, a higher probability of your specific needs met. 
  • If you do not like to have face to face physical meetings, this choice provides for it. You can use plenty of tools available on the Internet to allow you to have excellent collaboration levels. 


  • If you happen to be more hands-on and regular meeting is a must to keep your project management in check, this will not be a right solution for you, and it poses too much unnecessary “panic” buttons. 
  • Local knowledge is essential; this is another advantage that deters businesses from choosing national-level and international partners. 
  • You should also factor the cost of travel, which will increase the cost of the website design as well. 

International Level 


  • Cheaper cost or lower prices for web design and development


  • Time zones make the work less easy to manage, and you can quickly lose a day when your web developers take a much longer time to reply. 
  • Cultural differences between your home country and everywhere else in the world. 
  • Lower productivity due to cultural nuances which may cloud the communication
  • You need to source for good, secure payment gateways that stop overseas freelancers or companies from disappearing without providing the goods and services. 

All local, national, and international web design company provides you to the solutions you need based on your preferences and business context. There is no choice, which is better than the others.

The things to take note of when sourcing for web design agencies or freelancers. 

Understand their business sense

This is a subjective but critical important criterion when you do your web design criteria and selections; you have to understand your website designer’s business sense.

Building your business website is more than putting your business online.

For example, when you move your business from an Asia market into the European market. I bet you will think of all the factors about making it a success, including studying the crowd, look at the location, the calculated risks, and more.

And the same applies to develop a website, moving your business online is like moving it into another marketplace. You need to expect a level of advice and consultancy from your web designers, given their familiarity with the online marketplace.

One common mistake many businesses make is to believe and make assumptions that as long as they are web designers, they will have the knowledge to build websites, and also make them successful.

You should be careful with their terms and conditions especially with the overall rights of your business website or eCommerce. Some agencies may request you to pay an extra fee to transfer the rights to you.

You may also like to ensure that you have the rights to your domain and server login details.  

Understand Their Terms & Conditions

Be thorough and read the terms and conditions of each web design company or freelancer when they provide you with quotations or services.

Some agencies may need you to pay additional disbursement fees to pass the rights of the website back to you. Also, ensure that once the web design projects are finalized and confirmed, your business will gain the final rights, server logins, and details are kept confidential.
