Made in the U.S.A. - Does Your Current Web Development Company Outsource The Design, Content or Online Marketing of Your Website Overseas?
Thursday, July 14, 2011
Made In The U.S.A.
Well before you hire them you just might want to ask them if they outsource any of their development or marketing to any overseas firms. We have become increasingly aware that more and more start-up and established American based web design and marketing firms are now outsourcing work to overseas companies.

All of the web development, design and SEM (search engine marketing) work that DH WEB creates for our clients is absolutely 100% produced by the talented DH WEB employees and staff, of which all reside in the United States. Our work is never outsourced to overseas companies and DH WEB is very proud to state that all of its websites and projects that we have created are all unequivocally MADE IN THE U.S.A.

Typically, web development that has been outsourced overseas does not adhere to proper American grammar guidelines, nor do overseas companies have a good grasp of American idioms, culture or phrases that are so important when creating relevant content, keywords and effective search engine marketing.

Optimizing Keywords on your website is crucial for having both your current and new customers find you on the web. An overseas company that has no understanding of American culture, your business or organization is very likely to make the wrong judgments and assumptions when creating or selecting the most relevant keywords and content. DH WEB, being a local based east coast U.S.A. firm, has a greater understanding of American demographics and culture along with the ability and willingness to learn who your audience is. Therefore DH WEB is much better positioned and more knowledgeable to drive or increase traffic to your website, whereas a distant uninformed overseas company is at an extreme disadvantage. This ultimately results in DH WEB delivering a much higher rate of return for very effective content and online marketing.

Another disadvantage of outsourcing any project overseas is the extra lead time added by having different working hours along with language barriers which can cause problems with communication and delayed turnaround times.

Also it has come to our attention that if you outsource your online marketing to an overseas firm they often times will set up overseas link farms and even actually hire people within their country or firm to visit your website with the specific intent of bolstering their claim of increasing traffic to your website. So they make the claim that they will double your traffic when in reality it is useless traffic. Do you really think an increase of traffic to let's say your restaurant business website all coming from overseas is really going to add dollars to your bottom line? The answer is NO; it only increases your bandwidth usage.

Q. Let's assume you are a U.S. regional home builder, a local restaurant, or tech firm, do you really believe that someone overseas understands your market better than someone that lives in the area where you are located?

A. No! I highly doubt someone from overseas offering very cheap prices is going to fly overseas simply to experience your restaurant or visit your business in order to better understand it.

What DH WEB will do is visit your business so that we can educate ourselves on the aspects of your business you want to effectively promote online. With the ultimate goal of delivering more relevant content for your website which in turn in will produce more business, attain new customers and increase your bottom line.

So contact us today to find out just how affordable our rates are and just what we can do for you, right here in The Good Ole U.S.A.

Chesapeake Collectibles
DH WEB recently put the finishing touches on a brand new companion web site for MPT's newest program Chesapeake Collectibles. The website features the ability for viewers to register and upload both photos and videos of collectible items that have a history or connection to Maryland. The new website also features episode and related information on the show.

Chesapeake Collectibles explores the Chesapeake Bay region's distinctive history through its treasures, people and their stories. Each episode of the series takes you back through time and all over Maryland, like an entertaining walk through the past. Hear the stories behind favorite family heirlooms, while expert appraisers make the distinction between what is "collectible" and what is not.

Join host Rhea Feikin each week and discover the flavor and uniqueness of our area through its antiques and collectibles!

Chesapeake Collectibles, is Maryland Public Television's newest program that looks at the treasures you may have in your attic, your garage or at your grandmother's house. It's an educational and fun half-hour that searches for and unveils some of the most fascinating antiques and treasures found across our Chesapeake region.

Whether it's a colonial-era "witching jug," a letter written by George Washington or some molten eyeglasses from the Great Baltimore Fire, you'll discover the intriguing stories our possessions can share with us. And their values will surprise the owners and amaze you!

Hosted by MPT's own star, Rhea Feikin, and assisted by MotorWeek host John Davis, Chesapeake Collectibles also includes short features on some of the region's most notable collections. We'll see the frenzy at a huge weekly antiques auction on Maryland's Eastern Shore and a collection of airplanes, built in nearby Hagerstown, which changed aviation history.

You'll meet a 90-year-old man whose sons presented him with a 1936 Cord automobile he once restored but sold decades ago. These are just a few of the amusing and compelling windows into how collectibles can touch and change lives.

Produced at MPT by Ken Day, Chesapeake Collectibles is made possible by MPT's New Initiatives Fund, which is sponsored by Irene and Edward Kaplan, along with Preston Scheffenacker Properties. MPT would like to thank SECU and Smyth Jewelers for their continuing support of MPT and Chesapeake Collectibles.

Over 51 million iPhones are currently in use and in 2009 over 170 million smartphones, capable of browsing the Internet, were sold worldwide.

Take advantage of this fast-growing segment of web users by having a mobile version of your current website created by DH WEB. The cost is very reasonable and varies depending upon size and complexity; call us at 301-733-7672 and we'll be delighted to estimate the cost for you. The new iPhone/Android compatible website will run in conjunction with your current desktop website and when a viewer arrives at your website via a mobile device they will automatically be redirected to the iPhone/Android or mobile website.

We are dedicated to helping businesses and organizations empower their reach to customers beyond the desktop PC or laptop and open up new business avenues using handheld technology, mobile site design, and mCommerce.
