This is a letter of advice to all freelance web developers on behalf of web development companies in India. Freelance web design or web app development can bring you additional income, but it has several adverse effects on the Indian economy. The following influences can destroy India in all respects.
1. Freelance web designers are independent, so they charge very low rates for web design, which lowers the market price for the same work. Web application development companies can’t beat freelancer rates. Ultimately, a new business may die prematurely or not survive much longer. The province loses a business unit and business development stops.
2. Freelancers work on projects to earn extra income, but they have little interest in paying taxes on it, so they request payment through various alternative methods, i.e. cash payments. Freelancers do not pay tax on cash income. Countries like India lose their tax revenue, had it been a web development company they would have taxed the revenue.
3. Personal website developers are there for money not fame, so they are not responsible if their client’s website application project fails, but receiving clients have a bad impression of the Indian website development industry. Sometimes foreign clients never come back because of a bad experience with a freelance web developer.
4. Many freelance web developers don’t even have experience when they start serving foreign clients. Clients found India very cheap, so projects were assigned to inexperienced freelancers. In the end, the web applications developed by Freelance Web Developer are rubbish or unstable otherwise the web development company could have provided a good experience to the customers.
5. A web development company is building a business unit and they want honest developers in the company. If you are a freelance web developer and still working for a company, try to scam the company that is currently paying you for your living.
So if you want to help India your home country stop freelancing and work for a good web company or start a new web app development company if you are an entrepreneur.
