Generally, there are four types of websites that we offer to start-up businesses based on their business goals, and the products and services they offer.


  • 1. Information or Content-Based Website

This is the most basic type of website for start-ups and small businesses. This website is content-based and provides information about your business through content to visitors. It is usually developed in WordPress and can be customized according to the client’s requirements and likes. This is the best solution for businesses with a limited budget as the cost for this kind of website is charged on a per-page basis. A mobile application cannot be developed for this kind of website.

Benefits:

• Simple yet information-rich website
• Budget-friendly solution
• Can be customized
• Cost on a per-page basis


    • 2. E-Commerce Website

An eCommerce website is the best solution for start-up businesses who are selling several products as this kind of website can effortlessly and professionally display the products they are selling. Further, an eCommerce website also allows the customers to browse through a large number of products with ease, choose the products they like, add them to the cart and make a purchase. Ecommerce store development Bangkok can be through ready-made themes available for purchase online and can also be customized. Ecommerce website development in Thailand can be done in OpenCart, Shopify, Magento, WordPress and on any other platform. These kinds of websites are a bit expensive than simple WordPress websites as their cost depends on the platform used, theme and the number of products. However, due to the readymade plug-ins and platforms that are used in the development, these websites pose scalability issues. If you wish to make changes or want to scale your eCommerce website later, it becomes very difficult due to the limitations of readymade themes and plug-ins used. Further, an eCommerce website can’t be customized.

    • 3. Marketplace Website

An online marketplace or a marketplace website is a type of e-commerce site that connects sellers with buyers. It’s often known as an electronic marketplace. In this type of website the transactions are usually managed by the website owner; however, it is not necessary. Organizations use online marketplaces to reach customers who want to purchase their products and services. This kind of website is the best for B2B businesses, which aim to facilitate businesses between sellers and buyers. Marketplace websites can be built on different technologies based on customer requirements.

One of the most unique benefits of marketplace websites is that they can simply display a large number of products from different sellers in one place so that customers can browse, choose and purchase easily. Further, it also allows customers to compare the prices of a product from different sellers and get the best deal.  However, a marketplace website is expensive as it is extremely complex. It involves a lot of design and development work. If this kind of website is built using a readymade theme or plug-in, then it becomes difficult for the business to customize it and make changes later. This poses the scalability issue as you can make changes only within the limitations of the theme and plug-ins used.

Benefits:

• Displays a large number of products from different sellers on a single platform
• Can be built on different technologies of customer choice
• Allows browsing through a large number of products and comparing their prices

These websites can be developed according to the vision of a business and its requirements. One of the main benefits of this website is that it allows you to stand out from your competitors. This website can be built on different technologies and platforms to accommodate customer requirements. In this type of website, the business can make any changes, can scale it later to any extent.
