Entrepreneur who has no much knowledge in the Website launching could fall into a trap in the hands of inexperienced, fraudulent, factitious Website developers.
This special article is just to create awareness amongst the Entrepreneurs and I can also say that this article is a dedication to them.
Our ancient culture teaches us that I quote “one should follow a Principle or go by the way the elders shown the way, because, they have inherited these values from generation-down-to- generation” I unquote. Or I can say from time immemorial.
Similarly in the cropping up of the desire of creating and launching of Website the Entrepreneurs must select a genuine, worthy, eco-friendly Website Developer.
I am cutting short this valued article or restrict to the barest minimum of offering ten valuable tips to the Entrepreneurs, for benefiting themselves in the selection of genuine Website Developers.
Tip No. 1: What is a Website, and why at all it should be created?
The answer is that through a World Wide Web (www) the Entrepreneur gets the benefit of throwing open to the public his Company’s profile and its obligation to the viewers who are really in need of their products that are Manufactured/Stocked and Traded. Hence there is a need to approach a reputed Website Developer for the purpose.
By this creation, mainly the manpower required for the propaganda and selling of the products worldwide is saved to a great extent. It minimizes the cost of products that are sold, saves the establishment expenditure, and saves energy in the verbal talk explaining about the specification, number of products manufactured, its quality, Lab/inspection facilities used etc..
Tip No. 2: How the Entrepreneur gets the viewer’s response?
The viewers of the Entrepreneur’s Website get first hand information about the products availability to suit their requirements, and instantly fill up the Dynamic Enquiry Form in the hosted Website itself and submit to the Entrepreneurs Website mail ID, which reaches within split second of the submission click. By this, the valuable time to be spent in the posting, faxing, telephoning the requirement of the products to the Entrepreneurs is saved. In the other way also, the Entrepreneur can contact the Viewer who has seen their Website, through their contact numbers, mail IDs etc. All is done by sitting in a cabin itself.
Tip No. 3: What else the Viewer sees from the Entrepreneurs website?
In addition to the knowing of the product’s availability, the viewer also sees the products image, its specification, the quality certificate awarded to the products manufactured/traded, Lab Tests and inspection report on the material etc., which gives a confident to the viewers to mail their requirement.
Tip No. 4: How to grow confidence to the viewers about the Entrepreneur’s products that are used globally?
Normally the human tendency is that if a reputed Company uses the products of the Entrepreneurs, the subsidiary Companies, and other valued customers also would follow the same, till a product gets it name in the global market. Hence e it is desirable to mention in the Website Page, the name of reputed Companies and the quantum of products sold etc., which will grow confidence to the viewer to purchase the Entrepreneurs products.
Tip No. 5: How to avoid the non-genuine, fraudulent, factitious Company Web Site Developers?
This is also an important point to be kept in the mind by an Entrepreneur. In this 21st Century, there are lot of non-genuine, fraudulent, fictitious Website
Developers emerge day-by-day, just to make money without proper planning. Neither they have any professional background nor do they have finance background, or any experienced technical personnel available with them. They one fine morning simply open a shop with a name in a small room posing themselves as a reputed Developers and keep some close friends to support them in canvassing of Entrepreneurs.
After collecting huge money towards advance payments give time for the Developing of the Entrepreneurs Website and suddenly vanish one day completely winding off their Website Development business. We read number of such instances in the leading Newspapers and also see through media channel. Entrepreneurs must know the genuine Website developer through Market Enquiry, or from reputed Agencies, before committing and placing order for the Website development. Once if an Entrepreneur gets involved with such fraudulent Website Developers, it will be very hard to come out of this trouble, and the real purpose is lost.
Tip. No. 6: How to assess the cost involved in the creation and Website Development?
Above all, the Entrepreneurs must exercise a strict control over their finance to be advanced to the Website Developers. This can be done by selecting few reputed Website Developers or Enquiry from known reliable sources, or by inviting quotations from a duly Registered Website Company. The price aspect involved can be analyzed through the competitive rate of quotations received, and further negotiations with the quotation, or else call each one of the Company who have quoted for a negotiation across the table and take a final decision before placing the order for the Website development. This is a safest way.
Tip No. 7: How to know the real benefit achieved or not after the creation, development and launching of the Entrepreneurs Website?
Every Entrepreneur wishes to achieve maximum benefit out of the Website launching. It is quite reasonable. That is why a popular and reputed Website Developer is required for this purpose. Simply because a Website Developer charges lower price, the Entrepreneur should not entrust to them the job of creation, development and launching of Website. Price is not only the criteria, the quality of construction of Website and the maximum benefit offered by them by way of giving additional pages, the long run usage etc., are also to be kept in view. I can assure the Entrepreneurs that a surely a good, reputed, professionally and financially having good background, a Registered Website Developer will be very beneficial in the long run.
Tip No. 8: How the Entrepreneur gets satisfaction with the Website Development?
Also the Entrepreneur must see that their Website is created, Developed and launched are as per their thought, necessity and worthiness, which brings satisfaction in the creation, developing and launching of their Website.
Tip No. 9: How to locate the Entrepreneurs Business place, the means of availability of transport etc?
This is also an important aspect the Entrepreneur must look into. We see now-a-days number of Industrial area is created so as to have a concentration of business in a secluded place which at times, goes outside the city limit. Hence It is better to have a location map, a rough sketch of the Entrepreneurs place duly marking the area with distance, the nearest availability of means of transport by Air, Rail, Road, Port etc., so that the viewers gets a choice of means of transport to suit their convenience.
Tip No. 10: How the Entrepreneurs expect the viewers’ response?
Last but not least, I would like to say that the Entrepreneurs would expect the response from the valued viewers in many ways – say by post, by telephone, by fax, by Mobile phone, by Landline phones or by personal visits etc. It should be the responsibility of the Receptionists/floor in-charge to immediately respond to the callers/visitors. For this purpose, a Page exclusively earmarked as CONTACT US; which will be uploaded in the last page of the Entrepreneurs Website. This page must reflect the Entrepreneurs full name, complete postal address with Pin Code, nearest landmark to their place, e-mail IDs, Contact numbers, Grievances Cell, purchase and sales department contact numbers with in-charges name. This will facilitate the viewers to easily transact their business with the concerned officials without wasting much time.
