As a matter of fact, both new and experienced web design agencies have the same issues with company image and lack of customers. There's never too much of a good thing, isn't it? It's a hard work to create a reputable company image, but it's so simple to lose it due to a few bad testimonials. If we ask any web design agency about the number of their clients, most likely they will complain that they lack them.
In this article we will tell you about one of the marketing tricks you didn't practice yet. It will help you gain more credible online image, grow your customers list, and increase your income. Are you interested?
Have you heard about Web Studios Catalogue? It's one of the multiple TemplateMonster's projects.
We guess the greatest thing about Web Studios Catalogue is that both web developers and their customers can benefit from it. The project is aimed to help them find each other and start mutually beneficial cooperation.
Let's view the following situation. An entrepreneur has purchased a pretty ready-made design for their future online resource. However, very soon the customer understands that they have no idea of what to do with it next. They are puzzled with template customization and project launch process. All templates are delivered with extensive documentation and there are lots of text and video tutorials on the Internet. But most of the businessmen have neither time nor desire to study all this stuff. All they want to get is just up and running website, built and launched asap and at low cost. Eventually, that was the reason why they have chosen a template instead of custom design.
Next step such entrepreneurs take is surfing the web in search of some decent local web design studio or freelancer who will do the job instead of them.
But that's not as easy as it seems. There are so many web design studios and geeks-freelancers ready to offer their services out there. But can you be sure that they will meet your requirements? At this stage TemplateMonster Web Studios Catalogue becomes really handy.
It's natural that when people see a web design company located somewhere nearby on the list of developers recommended by one of the industry leaders, it automatically appears much more trustworthy to them.
Let's discuss the project in details.
TemplateMonster Web Studios Catalogue includes only those web studios that have successfully completed company certification and proven to be field professionals. The studios should be able to work with company themes.
Since Web Studios Catalogue features only certified agencies, customers can fully rely on it and do this with pleasure.
