10+ Web Design Agencies for StartupsBlog, General Topics - March 5, 2017 admin 0 comments
Decision to startup a website is either a New Venture/ Internet Business or online part of a already running physical business.
In both cases it is much more important to market the website well than it is to get one setup. Setting up the website is only 5% of the task and rest 95% task is to get activity, visitors and eventually clients to payoff your efforts.
90% of websites fail to generate revenues as expected because they are not backed by a proper business plan, research and marketing plan to let it kickoff.
If you have a great idea and are considering to start an online business, you need to have a plan budget for pre-launch and post-launch activities in addition to website development costs.
And if so why not chose a “Web Design Agency” who have experience working with startups who have gone the full circle – Right from developing a business plan, website/blog/forum making to search engine optimization, press releases for new launch, Advertising, blogging, Social Media marketing etc.
Lets Agree here that one web design agency may not be right for every business so it is a good idea to ask for similar projects the designer has worked upon and discuss with them in detail what parts they are going to do and for what parts you need to look outside. If so, are they in a situation to guide you in right direction as you promote your website business.
Find Below some rules that will prevent you from going wrong.
- Look for teams of at least 4 or 5 people and interdisciplinary skills that is design, development and business
- Check the portfolio – one particular type of work for one particular type of clients stands for specialization
- Is the message in their blog, social media, website revolve around their work of supporting startups.
