Success Story: Mark Atkinsron (Web Designer)
Mark was a web-design wanna-be since the beginning. At the age of 15, he got his first project of designing a website for a local school which went horribly wrong. He had no prior experience in design but still was ambitious.
He had a friend with whom he started a company for web designing.
In his own words, “We had discovered the magic of Content Management Systems and started creating terrific template-based websites. We didn’t care that they looked exactly like 431 other websites on the Internet. Nobody would ever know!”
Their business was not doing well as they were not actually creating an impact. Their designs were not good enough. They had to learn this the hard way when they had to close their business for 6 months for self-evaluation. They learned what the designers better than them were doing and what the other designers were lacking.
They learnt 3 major lessons:
- Stay up-to-date with the latest technology
- Differentiate yourself from the crowd.
- Under-Promise and Over-Deliver
After months of self-examination, research and brainstorming, we reinvented our business completely. They adopted an all new image, work ethic and philosophy as we set out on our mission to become the small business branding and web design authority in our industry.
This is how these doers didn’t stop and improved for years to provide quality web designing services.
