This article is aimed at freelancers and web design studios at first turn. Let us ask you a question. Would you wish to increase your workflow and income for just a few clicks? If your answer is: “No, I’m absolutely happy”, just don’t bother to read this article. But if your answer is something like this: “I wish things to be better for me and I know that they could”, read on very attentively. We are going to tell you about one working marketing trick that won’t cost you a dime.
Actually, people who think that nothing can be improved in their workflow are either blind or lazy. They don’t want to notice obvious things. Business that does not grow and develop is dead. Sorry, if we hurt somebody’s feelings. We just wanted to wake you up.
All of us face the same problems every day. Most common ones are lack of customers, clients that do not know what they really want, difficulties with getting links from big blogs with good traffic density, the list goes on. Do you agree? How do you overcome these challenging situations? Put more money and efforts into your marketing campaigns? Redesign one and the same thing a hundred times because a picky client wants to make a “few tweaks”? That’s right, why not, but you will never become well off this way. It’s always worth to try all free methods before passing to the paid ones. This what we call a penny-pinching approach, but they say “penny and penny laid up will be many”.

In other words, the customers will see a list of all web design agencies that work with Magento platform on the Web Studios Catalogue. The feature is utterly user-friendly, especially when they buy several different templates and want to launch more than one project at a time. The clients can select one of the two ways. They can either contact one web design studio that works with WordPress, Joomla and Magento (for example) or send a request to 3 different agencies.
In addition to being highlighted on the chart, each partner gets a separate profile page. There they can post more specific/detailed information about their services, studio description, staff, contact details, a list of CMS they work with, pricing plans, feedbacks, and much more.
The profile page includes TemplateMonster’s feedback about the design studio and its rating as well. The more projects with their templates web studio has completed and the more positive feedbacks customers leave, the higher ranking the profile gets.
