Pakistani Web Designers: A Review - Articles Surfing
I needed a new site, and like many webmasters, I began scoping through the forums looking for somebody who seemed to know what they were doing. Now, in most cases, I like to work with people that I can easily relate to, and usually those people live in the same country as me. If for no other reason, sometimes I chose a freelancer because the time zones are pretty close together. For this particular site, though, I decided to try something new. I tried web designers from Pakistan.
It may not seem scary to you, the experienced IT professional, but it was a little bit unnerving for me. I'm something of a control freak, so sending my work halfway around the globe to be completed was a little nerve-wracking, but the low cost and professional products these guys had turned out in the past had piqued my interest.
I pulled together some samples and criteria and tried to figure out when I would be online at the same time as my web designers to discuss the project. I quickly discovered that my designers seem to come to work at about the same time I went to bed, but it was a problem easily solved via email.
I emailed my criteria and samples, and the web designers immediately began working. As many marketers know, this timeliness in and of itself was exciting. Whenever a question or problem arose, I would wake to find an email or instant message waiting for me, and I would simply reply. If I needed a status check, I would send an email and like clock-work, my response would be waiting for me the next morning.
Sometimes we ran into trouble, but these individuals were so focused on doing things right, they would work odd hours to ensure we could collaborate over instant messengers when we needed to. These guys truly went above and beyond. It was incredible.
The Pakistani web designers seemed to work around the clock and delivered my new site very promptly, ahead of the deadline. The best part of all is that it was the best looking site I've seen in a long time. It was truly a site to behold; pun intended. I was extremely pleased with the quality of not only the end result, but the service along the way.
With it completely obvious that I had a terrific experience with Pakistani web designers, I feel I must offer full disclosure. When I was first considering the designers, I was hesitant to commit to such a low price. Like many internet professionals, I had heard rumors of poor quality work being produced for such prices such as these.
I can assure you however, that in reality, this is not the case. I actually asked the designers about it, and they said that it is so much cheaper to live in the Middle East they don't have to try and be competitive with freelancers based elsewhere. They can charge low rates, provide the same level of work and professionalism, and still be making a significant profit, simply because of the value of the dollar in the area they live.
So all in all, I am extremely pleased that I took this opportunity to try out Pakistani web designers. They went so far beyond my expatiations, I would be a fool to not use them for every website project I have. I strongly encourage everyone to give them a try, you'll be just as impressed as I am.
