Download Pdf

Please allow me to start with a shocking news. More than 90% of the web venture fails.  And most fail because those projects are not defined properly.  You will discover following issues once you from the next day of the launch.  

  1. Some important features have been overlooked.
  2. Many developed features has become obsolete
  3. Some features have been developed in a non-practical way.
  4. And so on.

The result is blaming each other. But you could really avoid it by simply defining the project properly.  You should do the homework; keep yourself up-to-date in the field you are going to work and write down in a way such that the developers can understand what actually you have in your mind.

But this requires a years of tech, business and marketing experiences. You do not have. We can help you at a nominal cost. We have people in our company with more than 12 years experience in these fields.
