There is something to be said for experience. longevity. reliability.
There is something to be said for experience. I have been developing websites for companies since the first major release of a web browser back in 1995. At that time I owned a local office supply company in Dayton, Ohio. I created a website for my office supply company and started selling office supplies all over the world.
Eventually, word of mouth about my abilities to put companies on the web circulated locally in Dayton and I began developing websites for companies large and small.
With over 22+ years of experience of doing business on the web, you are going to be hard pressed to find someone that knows more about developing a website for your company in the Dayton, Ohio area. Matter of fact, I have probably been developing websites since most of the other of the local web developers were in diapers! There is something to be said for experience, longeivity, and reliability.
