Competition? Sure there are a few other companies in the area who do what I do. Most of them are really really good at what they do. When I first devoted myself 100% into this Ward Design Group venture many years ago, I spoke to “a competitor” and he said that there was plenty of work for all of us and he did not feel there was any “competition” for us.
I took that comment to heart and have worked to not try to bid against or take away any web business from another LOCAL web company. It’s just the way I see things. Now if you are sending $$$ to 1-800-fill in the blank outside of St. Augustine, I’ll happily work to earn that business.
In addition, I’ve had the chance to tell potential clients that have a grudge against their current web company, to go back to their web guy and work out their issues, prior to me bidding on the job. If they try and the reconciliation ends up fruitless, then I’ll take the work.
Just a thought I wanted to share. St. Augustine is a place where small business can thrive if they treat their people well and keep their character above reproach. I’m happy to be in an industry with many other very talented people that all seem to share the load of work. We all have differing strengths and weakness. If I can help you, call. If your job is a better fit for another company, I will happily refer you to them.
