How to start with Digital Transformation
We recently worked with a consulting business company (small enterprise) who work with lot of aviation businesses. We started with rebranding first – redesigned their logo, stationaries, marketing & sales collatrals. Redesigned their website, built the website to be SEO & marketing friendly. Integrated both Salesforce and Copper CRM for various functions. And also we setup their Marketo campaign automation. All this happened in the period of 18 months, along with other regular maintenance & small web apps developments for them. So, we are available to start anything in this line up.
Budget for the small manufacturing business websites
Knowing the budget range would help to make better decisions. For an information website, it can be started from USD 1500. For the different digital transformation components together with us, approximately, it would be in the range of USD 2000 to USD 4500 per month or having USD 25K to USD 50K would be a decent budget.
Remote and Outsourced working options
Internet & digital business is the answer, and its the way for businesses to move forward. For communication, we use Skype, GMeet, Zoom and we are very comfortable across all project management tools – including Asana, Trello, Basecamp, Monday etc.. So far, its been a great journey with all these tools and with the people using those tools, of course !
