Well for starters we are here and we are “probably” the best web developers in the World (or at least one of them), so no.
Times are changing, businesses are getting more personal, small businesses outside of London can offer so much more. Overheads are cheaper for one, and pace somewhat relaxed. The relationships built with my clients are on more of a level playing field, no superiority complex. We enjoy face to face time with our clients. And instead of concentrating on aggressive sales we can concentrate on customer relations.
A mentor said to me, it’s not about what you agree to do its about the extra something you can offer.
