The BIGGEST MISTAKE a business can make is outsourcing their website marketing to someone without local expertise. We see SEO/web marketing companies offshoring, or their contractors are sub-contracting offshore to sweatshops GOD KNOWS WHERE.
ASK, to be sure. Write it into your contracts. “no off-shoring by contractor, sub-contractor, or any sucontractor of theirs”
The future success of your company at stake. If you want to “trust it” to the lowest bidder on another continent, then YOU DESERVE to go out of business.
