Web design in South Africa has just become accessible to the everyman according to local business owner, Norio De Sousa, founder of Maxiware CC - who now offers "leased" professional ecommerce web sites for only R499 p/m.
Centurion, Gauteng, February 24, 2012 -- Web design in South Africa has just become accessible to the everyman according to local business owner, Norio De Sousa, founder of Maxiware CC - www.maxiware.co.za - who now offers "leased" professional ecommerce web sites for only R499 p/m.
"I was inspired by the story of one of my clients who said to me that she had been quoted R40,000 for an e-commerce store, plus a monthly hosting fee of R699 a month. I thought that was quite a lot of money for someone to find just to START a business. Then you've got to buy stock, hire employees and so much more. It's a bit much." said De Sousa.
The deal that De Sousa offers includes a basic template, credit card processing and the loading of an unlimited amount of products into your website, to help you get started. De Sousa said that he found that most small businesses testing out the online market simply don't need the high costs of custom design and that cutting that out was an important part of his formula for saving small businesses serious money.
De Sousa went on to say that, "People are too concerned with the name of their new business and the logo and the web design that they just never get started. It's such a shame when you can rather get started quickly and then change the name, the logo or the design down the line. So many successful e-commerce stores have changed names since they started."
"Takealot.co.za, a popular e-commerce entity and importer of technical gadgets, used to be called Take2.co.za. Kalahari.net, one of South Africa's leading e-commerce stores, has upgraded their logo and design a few times over the past 10 years.", said De Sousa.
De Sousa says that he now that his company - http://www.maxiware.co.za - is offering this R499 deal, people don't have to struggle to get online any more. Your first payment, he says, covers your first month's subscription and the set up of your store. Each month thereafter, you lease the right to use his e-commerce software and you the R499 also covers unlimited hosting.
"Gone are the days of paying R10 a month per email, and strict hosting space and bandwidth restrictions. Everyone's going uncapped and we think it's the way to go. You shouldn't worry about how much bandwidth you can use in your hosting package, or how many emails you can afford for your business. You can grow as much as you need to with our unlimited hosting." said De Sousa.
