A Friend of Web Developers
September 13th, 2009 | Posted by Pin

The biggest myth about 1.com.my is perhaps that we provide web design services, when we don’t.

No doubt we started our business by creating websites for our customers, but we couldn’t stop thinking about how we could do more for our customers and provide added value. That’s what has driven our company to be what we are now.

We’re also very fortunate to be able to work with a large group of web developers and web design freelancers without any conflict of interest. Here are a few examples of how we’ve worked with them:

1) Web developers hate pitching and making free mock ups, yet, it seems to be the only way to get a big project. It’s strange really, why is there always a limited budget for web design, but a huge one for billboards that stand next to a highway for only 6 months? There isn’t even a measurable or proven conversion for them.

Web BluePrint

That’s where Web BluePrint come in, as they help your customer indentify the goal of a revamp, and justify the cost of the development. The website is no longer a static brochure, but can be viewed as an ongoing marketing tool, which makes customers more willing to invest in the project.

2) The market often demands a total solution, which means a web developer needs to be the project manager, designer and programmer.

All specialty?

This is difficult to achieve. Try, for instance, to imagine a doctor who’s a specialist in everything from oncology to heart surgery. Near impossible, right? Additionally, without a specific focus, it is also difficult for a company to enhance their skills or specialise themselves in a particular area. That’s why web blueprints are the way to go.

3) Many web developers have found that providing web hosting services for customers isn’t very profitable, that’s because web, email and domain name hosting is another speciliaised area.

Hosting referral partner for web developers

That’s why many web developers have now chosen to let us handle their web hosting customers directly. We bill and provide support and take over everything that’s related to hosting and domain names from them. At the same time, however, those web developers have also been able to sustain a recurring annual income through our referral programs. Join us now!

4) Developers can best accumulate their values by building their own online business, but what about funding, marketing issues etc.


If you need advice, we have an underground group where you can find quite a few solutions. Pin, the founder of 1.com.my, also writes regularly on web development, and runs several blogs, including websitesolution.com and emailhosting.com.my. We’ve also started an online travel website at www.a4trip.com. To write to Pin, drop him a message at: pin@1.com.my.
