The demands of running any business have always been daunting, and virtually no business, be it of the B2B or B2C variety, should try to do so without its own tailor made website.
Yet the challenge of setting up a customized website, particularly one that offers advanced functionality like ordering and payment processing, can seem to some as daunting as the business itself. Unless said business owner has an extensive background in web development and coding or graphic design, it has usually been best to just outsource that task and hope for the best.
This is exactly the kind of problem that Webydo aims to solve. With its intuitive to work with Photoshop like features and interface that removes the necessity for endless HTML coding, new business owners can now work with their in-house designer rather than relying on what could be a costly and debilitating venture. Vice versa, the professional designer is able to manage multiple client projects from a single Webydo dashboard to begin to build their own professional design agency.
The list of young businesses that have died before even getting off the ground due to problems with their online presence is too great to count. One of the biggest reasons for this is that when hiring outside developers to create a website from scratch, you’re essentially handing everything over to them and trusting that they’ll do everything as quickly and efficiently as possible.
Of course, this often doesn’t turn out to be the case.
No site in the history of the internet has worked 100 percent smoothly from the moment it’s published. You can research the marketplace for trends, design a website that seems to be streamlined and clean, and even do a soft launch to test for potential kinks. Yet no matter how diligent you are, there will always be unforeseen hiccups.
And when they happen, just how reliable will your development team be? Even the most professional independent developers can be stretched thin (remember, chances are they have several other clients to please as well) and having to go through them to make corrections or modifications to your site can cause unnecessary delays and miscommunications. So not only are you paying for the exhaustive time process that writing code entails, but now it’s costing additional money in lost production due to the delay.
What Webydo allows businesses to do is cut out that middle man. By utilizing the unique B2B software created by designers themselves, the designers are now able to focus all of their efforts on creating pixel perfect websites for their clients. Whether their they are building a website that is in-house or outsourced they no longer need to worry about relying on third party developers as Webydo automatically converts their designs into cross platform and fully functional websites. And because its storage is cloud-based, site creation and management can be done from any computer with an internet connection.
Let’s face it – even when things are going smoothly with a company’s website, sometimes scenarios arise where a better way to do things suddenly emerges, or there’s simply need to alter some branding elements to keep up with changing trends. At that point, although it appears to be a simple tweak on the front-end storefront of the site, the coding in the back-end can go on interminably. An excellent feature that designers can take advantage of in the Content Management System aka CMS is the ability to lock elements. This allows for users to edit or update certain areas while putting aside any worries of changing the design.
What it all boils down to is removal of a huge chunk of the risk that comes with building a site. What if your developers turn out to be less efficient than they advertised themselves to be? What if they’re great at development but lousy at communicating with their clients? What if they even go out of business? Will your site get dragged under with them?
Companies that were once held at the mercy of their developers can now break free and handle their site design in-house. And with all of the other risks that come from starting a business, why wouldn’t you want to mitigate this one as much as you possibly can?
