Again, not all jobs within those categories will be outsourced. For various reasons some jobs within those categories you mention might be outsourced, but not all. And things like this having been going on for years now, it's nothing new - so why this sudden desperation?



In above categories:
Programmers jobs, Manager jobs, Designer jobs, Architecture jobs are being outsource. Also, outsourcing ratio is increasing so much in these jobs. People are being laid off due this reason.

What exactly are you worried about? People moving back to India?



I am offering all website, SEO, ecommerce related services. Whenever i contact client they expecting me to offer services at outsource rate. If don't offer that cheaper price, they are not coming to me as nowadays they get outsourcing freelance at cheapest rate. So i am not making. That's why i was asking what other IT services my company can offer which can not be outsource.


Thank You,

It's ridiculous to assert that all jobs are being outsourced. Just because most could be, doesn't mean that they are.

Or, are you just not being clear and are talking about job types rather than job instances?




Job Types like Software, IT consulting, Web related, hardware related jobs being outsource. I am offering website, ecommece, SEO services. When i contact client they are expecting me to offer services at very cheaper rate because my competitiors are all freelancers outside USA. So i want to know which other services i can offer which can't be outsource.

What other things i need to start IT consulting business?



You need capital/financing. There are many expenses associated with starting and then running a business. For starters, you should
have at least $25,000 and should have living expenses covered for at least a year. There are special government grants for women and minority owners. Another source of income are your local banks. Finally, you can use your own credit to finance the startup.

Learn about the benefits of incorporating your business. This will help with marketing and advertising. If your business is not legitimate and registered, then you are simply a freelance contractor looking for work.

I have registered my company and have license too. I don't have take care of house & all other expenses as it is taken by my husband. So still i need $25000? If yes, for what?

Thank you,
