Today I was talking to a person how I thought certain companies were charging so much for some basic services that should otherwise be very easy. Sure enough, if you look at some of their competitors the rates are extremely different which then makes you wonder are they just that much better to justify the higher cost? He then threw a very valid point at me as he told me that most likely certain people are actually contracting others to do the work for them. Therefore, because they have to pay them while still making money for themselves this results in a higher price.
That is so true I thought and is often a point that people forget to research when they are doing business with a company. This can be a common thing when it comes to to like site creation, lawyer services or even home renovations. Many times companies will advertise that they can do it all whereas in reality they can’t do it themselves and rely on outside help to do the job. So this is a very simple point to research in an effort to save money as to whether or not the company does everything themselves or if they outsource it to others. If anything, knowing this detail you may be able to simply cut out the middle man and go straight to the people that actually do the work to save money too.
