WordPress Digital Agency – What’s In-Store For The Future, 2021?

Look into some of the success stories of a few WordPress Digital Agencies and you will notice a striking similarity between them.

The founders initially begin with freelance designing or developing works, building websites while simultaneously running their small businesses. As soon as they realize they are missing out on bigger opportunities, they take the next step forward, i.e., to start a Digital Agency.

You may or may not be familiar but this is precisely how ColorWhistle’s founder started out. Sankar’s passion for web designing and online marketing urged him to make his freelance gig more scalable and sustainable. And that’s also the stage where many WordPress freelancers and small business owners get to at some point in time.

If you find yourself in a similar position where you’re feeling okay with the work you do but don’t feel as though you’re maximizing your impact or your profit, scroll down further.

In this blog, we’ll showcase new opportunities in bringing about the online business revolution using WordPress. Furthermore, we’ll be discussing the future roadmap of WordPress and look at how partnership with a fellow WordPress Digital Agency is scalable.

WordPress Agency - The Base Structure Of Online Business Growth

WordPress is the first open-source CMS that was developed and thus gained a beginner’s advantage. With the likes of BBC America, Sony Music, Mercedes-Benz, TechCrunch, PlayStation Blogs to small business owners, everyone uses WordPress to get their business online!

“But WordPress is not only for blogging – nearly 28% of all e-commerce goes through WooCommerce.”

Automattic, the parent company of WordPress acquired WooCommerce in 2015.

WordPress Ecosystem

Remember why Microsoft couldn’t scale-up its expertise in building Operating Systems for Desktops/Laptops to Smartphone devices and how Android Operating Systems took a giant leap over it as it was developed as an open-source platform.

Once WordPress is up and running, you can also begin leveraging its robust community of open source developers, who provide regular updates, security patches, and other helpful forms of collaboration to the growing ranks of WordPress users.

“WordPress is nothing but a marketplace for themes, plugins, Tutorials, Developer forums, APIs.”

That same community is also renowned for its regular contributions to the growing list of plugins and themes that offer users endless ways to customize and add new features to their websites.

This ability to continuously contribute to the functionality is a polar opposite of other paid software pricing models, which can seriously diminish an agency’s bottom line.

How Can Digital Agencies Utilize WordPress Better?

From domain to hosting, marketing to sales, branding to customer retention, digital agencies can do anything & everything using WordPress!

WordPress co-founder Matt Mullenweg said it himself back in 2014, “when you think about it, we’re kind of building a web operating system.”

Let’s now compare WordPress functionalities with other popular products available in the market.

#1 Building Web Applications

WordPress is not a framework but offers pre-built, customizable themes. It’s plugin architecture offers a rich user experience and enhances content management.

On the other hand, Laravel is an open-source PHP framework. It provides various features, mainly for complex tasks that arise during the website development process, such as authentication, verification, data management, and others.

Building Web Applications

WordPress

WordPress could be used if you are:

    • Creating a content-based website – blog, media portal, online portfolio, etc.
    • Developing a quality website within a short time period
    • Building a custom-made website for someone who does not possess strong technical skills
    • Making an online shop for smaller or medium-sized companies
Laravel

Laravel might be helpful in:

  • Building a data-based website – booking service, project management app, payment gateway, etc.
  • Developing a custom-made web application with complex features
  • Creating a large-scale e-commerce solution

For a detailed comparison, visit this resource.

#2 Building an eCommerce Site

  • If you have a WordPress website already, just install WooCommerce and launch an e-commerce store as an element of that existing website.
  • If you don’t have a website yet, launch your ecommerce store with Shopify.

#3 Enhancing UI/UX

WordPress has pre-built themes for building a website. However, adequate knowledge of HTML, JavaScript (JS), CSS is required to customize these themes.

React, Angular, Vue are some popular JavaScript frameworks for frontend customization of your website. These flexible libraries/frameworks help in easy site creation, simple integration, two-way communication, etc.

In simple words, a developer could use these frameworks to edit and customize the pre-built themes so as to enhance UI/UX of any website.

#4 WordPress with headless CMS development

Traditional CMS was designed to manage content for a single channel. However, with the growth of mobile devices/voice search devices/social media, businesses require the same content to be published across different channels.

Here is where headless CMS comes into play.

Any headless CMS de-links your front-end and back-end applications to manage it independently, which is not the case with traditional CMS.

WordPress by default is not a Headless CMS but thanks to the bundled REST API, you can turn it into a Headless CMS. This would now allow you to publish your website’s content to your Facebook page, Google My Business listing, or your company’s wiki simultaneously. This approach is useful if you want to publish your content to mobile applications, static websites, or advanced web applications.

Watch the video to learn through a real-world example:

Follow this resource for a complete guide on creating headless CMS for your Web Application.

White-label outsourcing in areas like web app development, eCommerce website development, React JS / Vue JS User Enhancement are suitable for agencies that are looking for extra designing/development/marketing resources to share their workload.

ColorWhistle is well-equipped to off-load the needs of such agencies. While we work behind the scenes, you can look great in front of your clients!

WordPress Road Map For The Future

WordPress is always a work-in-progress.

Currently, Phase 2 of the Gutenberg project is underway. The Gutenberg project or ‘WordPress 5.0’ aims to broaden access to web presence. In the past, we have written about how you could prepare your business website for ‘WordPress 5.0’? Click to read.

Throughout 2020, WordPress continued to focus on:

    • Creating a block for navigation menus. WPTavern, the official site for WordPress related news opinionated that the Block Editor is here to stay.
    • Build a WordPress.org directory for discovering blocks, and a way to seamlessly install them.
    • Provide a way for users to opt-in to automatic plugin and theme updates.
    • Provide a way for themes to visually register content areas, and expose them in Gutenberg.
    • Upgrade the widgets-editing areas and the Customizer to support blocks.
    • Provide a way for users to opt-in to automatic updates of major core releases. Automatic updates of core WordPress are slated to officially land in version 5.6.

Here is an opinion article on the WordPress 5.6 wishlist.

Now shifting our focus to WordPress’s parent company – Automattic.

Over these years the company has expanded to include brands like Tumblr, Jetpack, WooCommerce, WordPress.com VIP, Simplenote, Longreads, and more. The company wants to make the web a better place. By releasing a new Spearhead theme targeted at Podcasters and Content Creators, experts imagine it to be the springboard of many upcoming themes, whether in the form of building child themes or using it as a starter.

“Spearhead is not just a theme for WordPress.com users. Self-hosted WordPress users can expect availability in the future.”

Wrapping Up

WordPress powers 35% of the internet in 2020 and digital agencies simply can’t just ignore its importance. With the inclusion of the REST API, WordPress is placed in a better position to capture the next 25% of the web.

Let’s recollect why Digital Agencies should invest their resources in WordPress in the coming future:

    1. Developers find website building easy, marketers get a ready template to implement SEO strategies.
    2. The open-source script lowers the risk of proprietary systems.
    3. WordPress is so widely spread and used offering extensive open-source contributions and community support.
    4. Digital agencies will find it easier to find and hire WordPress developers compared to any other proprietary CMS.

Most digital agencies, including ColorWhistle, are happy to use WordPress CMS for developing, marketing & branding needs. They are even open to partner with a fellow Agency for White-label outsourcing requirements.

Calling Marketing Consultants For An Agency Partnership

“Marketing strategy is where we play and how we win in the market. Tactics are how we then deliver on the strategy and execute for success”

Mark Ritson

The world had leapfrogged to digital adoption by 3-5 years since the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic. This means greater adoption of “tactics and tools” to sell online.

Ofcourse, anybody can be a marketer, more so a Digital Marketer, but how will the boom in digital adoption among companies affect them?

Unlike professionals say, Doctors/Architects who are recognized for their “client targeted skills”, marketers have preoccupied themselves with “widely used” tactics and tools to generate leads and build brand awareness alone. It may result in stiffer competition for such small businesses, non-tech Marketers, individuals in terms of profit margins, talent hiring, and scaling.

Time is now ripe for new age Digital Marketers to shift their focus on “strategy” first, devised by thoroughly researching, segmenting and targeting their market. And it can be done effectively with additional viewpoints – Agency Partner Program.

There’s Always Someone For Everyone

Those who have network access and want to monetize it for their business or such professional digital service providers who want to try outsourcing may continue to read on…

Are You A Digital Marketing Consultant?

Consulting has become a quite glamorous & idealized job, thanks to frequent references about it in popular media. Believe it or not, we’ve seen global digital consulting revenues almost double to $44 billion in 2018 in just 18 months.

In fact, in the present digital marketing consultancy size of $55 billion in the USA, or $4billion in the UK, there are no major players with a share of greater than 5%. This calls for a share of pie for anyone and everyone trying to make it big as a digital marketing consultant!

A digital marketing consultant may:

Suggest improvements in areas like SEO, social media, email marketing, and website design
Engage content platforms such as website landing pages and blogs
Implement effective content development strategies and analyze marketing keywords to rank better on the search engine results page
Build a company’s image with creative branding ideas

For you, most of these job roles must have grown organically from your WordPress website clients asking for additional services.

“Want to add more clients without risk? Digital agency partnership with ColorWhistle helps you scale up.”

In parallel, we are already witnessing digital convergence in marketing. As a result, most companies are relying more on freelancers, solopreneur consultants like yourself, etc. And as this is happening, you may need to partner with businesses having common aims; to collaborate and share resources.

Are You A Digital Agency Startup?

Since 2015, 25+ B2B digital agency partners across the USA, UK, Canada, Singapore, Europe, and India have enrolled in our Agency Partner Program. Working with 650+ small businesses served by our agency partners, we not only help agencies increase client retention but also suggest which channels and campaigns drive the most leads for small businesses with limited budgets based on our 15+ years of domain experience.

“Focus on your sales + strengths, outsource the rest. Reduce risks of startup problems like – talent hiring, cash flow, profit margin & scaling …”

For instance, as a digital marketing agency, you want to explore more beyond your efficiency and marketing prowess — you also want to learn how to use “that” software or service to earn new business; how call tracking is necessary for your marketing campaign; how the upcoming data-driven marketing will help you manage clients’ business.

Also, as a web design agency, you may require like-minded agencies who have hands-on experience with platforms like WordPress, Magento, WooCommerce, Shopify, Drupal, Vue/React/Angular.JS, and more.

Getting on board with our Agency Partner Program – White-Label services, Retainer services – is one way to gain a new business of your own.

Are You A Small Business?

COVID-19 had accelerated the digitization process across industries, and technology solutions providers saw a jump of over 30% in digital transformation deals since then. Not only that but 70% of enterprises worldwide are looking to either increase or reprioritize their outsourcing expenditure.

“Digital ecosystem/technology adoption is a must for all businesses. Making digital agency partnerships allows you to learn & scale …”

Having a website alone is not a digital transformation, you should be able to monetize it through skillful & data-driven marketing/branding/sales. And in order to achieve it, you may need to consider an Agency Partner Program – White-Label services, Retainer services.

Meanwhile, many of our existing partners also wonder as to why digital marketing agency pricing or website cost with agency are so different?

Listen to the founder of ColorWhistle sharing his expert insights in the video below.

Here are some more useful video resources from our recent “One-Niche-A-Day” series focussing on digital transformation for small business:

We have known Armin for more than a year now. Armin is a very professional and energetic partner to work with. We have worked together on multilingual PHP projects. Watch the video to see what Armin has to say about us. Thanks a lot, Armin!

Are You A Sales Consultant - Selling Technology & Digital Services?

“When you are damn good at sales (the hardest part of any business), then why don’t you scale it up instead of increasing expenses?! ColorWhistle is a partner for your digital services capabilities …”

Yes, having measured your potential as a sales consultant in the market, it’s time for you to look at how organizationally sales leaders drive performance – they rely heavily on digital tools and data-driven sales methodology.

The Gartner Future of Sales Report 2025 predicts that by 2025, 80% of B2B sales interactions will take place in digital channels. And to embrace the future of B2B sales, sales consultants and IT leaders should consider these three actions:

    • Build an advanced sales technology road map through predictions analytics and guided sales methods
    • Prioritize AI-based guides selling
    • Invest in technology that attracts new talent and enables virtual selling, say remote meeting platforms for sales

If you are looking for any outside resource for your digital sales transformation, our Agency Partner Program may offer better solutions.

Are You An IT Consultant?

“Working with enterprise IT consultants or Digital solution providers, it is very hard to keep track of all new tech frameworks or validate APIs all around the corner to plug & play the digital solutions on your own. Having a tech partnership will make your task much easier!”

As an IT consultant, there may arise a need to hire a web developer, or even better, an agency for expert assistance on most projects. Hiring local talent may cut down on your profit margins whereas remote hiring and working may be difficult to adopt.

Joining our Agency Partner Program – White-Label services, Retainer services – is one way to help yourself. With 15+ years of domain experience, our teams are capable enough of resonating with your needs.

Evelyn is a friendly yet professional client of ours. We have been working for a long time together now.

Positive Impact of Health Tech Partnerships with Digital Agency

“I think the biggest innovations of the 21st Century will be at the intersection of biology and technology”, predicted Steve Jobs about health tech a long time ago.

At its core, Healthtech includes any technology-enabled healthcare products and services that are primarily delivered and consumed outside of the hospital.

HealthTech vs Online HealthTech

Health Tech space has a wide-ranging suite of B2C and B2B offerings, such as:

    • preventive and monitoring tools for consumers,
    • analytic and administrative tools for healthcare administrators and commercial healthcare organizations.

Healthtech also consists of products that enable the burgeoning “healthcare at home” movement, which allows patients’ flexibility and convenience in how they manage personal care. (Telemedicine, blood testing, and genomics, for example.)

Healthtech may refer to specific solutions, including everything from websites and email, to software and hardware. The expression ‘online’ attached to health tech only makes the products/services more end-user centric as consumers tend to have a huge digital presence viz, mobile searches, social media, and emails.

“Online health tech, or otherwise, Digital health is a broader term that focuses on the convergence of health and technology to improve health delivery and outcomes.”

Why Invest in Digital HealthTech?

Consumers and businesses across the globe are beginning to realize the potential of the convergence between technology and the health industry, as reports have already predicted its upward trajectory in the years to come.

One of the most important drivers for this upward trajectory has been “behavioral”, that is,

    • Firstly, consumers are used to seeing technology disruption in other sectors, like the sharing economy, which has emboldened them to seek a better experience in other sectors too.
    • Secondly, consumers are beginning to become more health-conscious, particularly in the UK and Western Europe. Digital health seems to have arrived at the right time as buying habits now reflect this new attention, for example, Wearables saw explosive growth.

Regulatory changes in the US have also fueled Health Tech’s growth in its market with the decade-old Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act and the Affordable Care Act. Both these acts have simulated the adoption of electronic health records, supporting technology, and incentivizing the use of software in private healthcare.

Global health and population trends are also aging, and so innovative Digital Health Tech is evolving to meet these challenges.

Factoring in the covid-induced lockdown and social distancing requirements, customers are moving more towards E-health startups for online consultation, treatment, medical tests, and medicine delivery.

“Telehealth funding reached a new record of $2.8B in Q3’20 — a 73% increase from the previous quarter.” – Source

What Does “Online HealthTech” mean to various stakeholders?

Providers

  • Hoping to increase patient engagement/ acquisition/ retention with technology
  • Worried about how they will keep up with technical innovation while still maintaining a high level of patient care

Patients

  • mHealth / Health and wellness apps / mobile = getting their time back!
  • Telehealth and home monitoring solutions that enable virtual visits
  • Saving time when doing paperwork related to provider visits, or clinical trial data entry

Insurers/Payers

  • Interested in how home monitoring solutions can lower overall healthcare costs
  • When and how do they decide to reimburse digital health technologies? Despite high demand from patients, the majority of payers are not reimbursing healthcare apps

Clinicians

  • Overwhelmed by the vague definition of digital health (apps, sensors, social media, EHRs, data mining)
  • Concerned it will be too disruptive to their practice – new processes, new technologies to learn, massive amounts of data to deal with

Every year, the world-famous American research, advisory, and information technology firm, Gartner releases the Digital Health Hype Cycle. It represents the maturity, adoption, and social application of specific technologies in healthcare.

Components of Online HealthTech Branding

SEO and Schema Markup of HealthTech Articles

Content marketing is educational and less about the products the company sells. After all, branding is all about building a loyal audience base by providing useful information.

Being a digital health tech company, you are obliged to produce online content types like infographics, web content, videos, podcasts, long-form content, market research content to generate organic traffic.

It is generally a good practice to link schema markups to health tech articles to boost your on-page SEO.

You can find more details on schema markups in our detailed guide.

Here is another link to Neil Patel’s guide on boosting your SEO by using Schema Markup.

Should you Hire a Real Estate Digital Agency?

When you work on a new real estate web project or embark on a website redesign or begin with real estate digital marketing, the journey can be quite challenging.

If you want the best person to work on your online presence, it is going to be a hefty investment. For example, the average salary of a digital marketing manager in the United States will be around $87,000/year. This will either increase or decrease depending on where you’re based.

Of course, no single person can do all the planning and execution. So you have to hire graphic designers and a couple of other specialists to build a solid in-house digital marketing team.

This is the reason many business owners outsource their website designing and marketing efforts to an external digital agency. There are many advantages in leaving these important aspects in the hands of the experts. Here are some,

  • You can focus on your business and hire an entire team of knowledgeable experts to manage your online presence
  • Lower your costs and manage your budget more effectively
  • Acquire new points of view and stay relevant to your industry

Below are some helpful resources that will help you make the right decision.

Final Words

When you choose a digital agency to partner with, you have to get to know them before signing on. You have to understand who they are, how they operate, and why you should work with them.

Evaluating a digital agency partnership is not just rooted in service capabilities. It is also to see whether the two companies and individuals involved will be a suitable match.

Like any mutually beneficial relationship, both parties need to care about each other.

Especially when it comes to setting up an online presence, you have to choose a partner that will be thrilled to stay with you in the long run. In this internet era, having a well-rounded online presence is considered as the lifeblood of a business.

Local SEO Setup & Maintenance for Online Medical Help

“A study conducted by a reputed digital marketing agency Bluecorona asserts that nearly 73% of patients transitioned online to find a health practitioner and 89% use search engines for healthcare-related queries.”

“In the last year alone, nearly 80% of all the patients relied on the internet to search for medical information and medical practices. And over 70% of healthcare-related queries take place on a mobile device!”

If you come to think about it, the burst of search engines – Google/Bing/Alexa – have all come to have a cause-and-effect relationship with the present consumerism, and the medical industry is no exception.

The same is beautifully put forth by Google’s recent report on buying behavior online.

Local SEO Setup For An Online Medical Help

Google’s Conception of Purchase Journey

If you are in some way aligning with healthcare, pharmaceuticals, medical clinics, or medical offices, looking to improve your business, then this guide is exactly for you.

We are going to breakdown on how to improve your medical services online, focusing on Trigger & Purchase points (as seen in the picture) – by local SEO setup. Subsequently, we will deal with strategies that will help to pull out the potential consumers from the ‘Exploration-Evaluation’ infinite loop (as seen in the picture) – by getting professional help from digital agency service providers.

Important Local SEO Components For Online Medical Help

The purpose of SEO is to boost up the quantity and quality of inbound traffic to your website organically. Search Engine Optimization, abbreviated as SEO is the strategy that all the online businesses perform to rank themselves higher on the Google Search Engine Results Page (SERP).

You know why?

This Google report has observed several online shopping touchpoints: search engines, review sites, video sharing sites, portals, social media, comparison sites, forums, interest groups/clubs, retailer sites, aggregators, blogging sites, the voucher/coupon sites, branded sites.

And the biggest advantage in getting ranked higher on search engines is that the results are customized based on the searcher’s location.

This is particularly useful for businesses in the medical field.

To tap-in this advantage, one must move to a more technical aspect of traditional SEO – that is Local SEO.

Further, focussing on the following components of local SEO will fetch you the desired results:

  • Claim your Business Listing on Google My Business / Bing Places
  • Optimize Your Website For Mobile
  • Employ Local Schema
  • Rank For Featured Snippets
  • Perform Citations Audit

#1 Claim Your Business Listings Online

Google My Business is an official Google tool to make business listings and make them displayed on Search Engine Results, maps, and social networks. It’s like your “business card” but online.

Remember Trigger/Purchase points as discussed earlier?

A person searching on Google for medical help in the locale or neighborhood gets your business listed on the search engine due to proximity of the location. It eventually makes the person a prospect!

You may refer to this guide on setting up Google My Business.

However, if you have already claimed your listing, “optimize” it. Your local map pack ranking is determined by two things: proximity and rank.

While proximity is uncontrollable and depends on the searcher’s location, you can keep your listing updated with the latest Name, Address, Phone Number, Map Location. Additionally, make sure to add your website URL, opening hours, photos/videos, attend to user reviews to increase your visibility online.

Pro-tip: If you practice with multiple practitioners, but needs to optimize for your specific services, Google My Business can handle that as well. Refer to the official guidelines to represent your business on Google here.

#2 Optimize Your Website For Mobile

We had already disclosed that over 70% of online healthcare queries take place on mobile devices. Therefore, it is even more important for businesses related to healthcare to keep their websites mobile-friendly.

    • By optimizing your website for mobile, we mean to say:
    • Accessible and functional in every web browser
    • Easy to read and navigate on all devices
    • Quick to load content, images, and video
    • Responsive. So it adapts to fit the user’s screen or is specifically designed for mobile users
    • Employing HTTPS to keep the website secure. This is important to services like telemedicine, physiotherapy session, yoga training, fitness coaching, etc.

#3 Employ Local Schema

Schema markup is all about highlighting specific content on your webpages, thereby signaling Google crawlers to consider the information that you want to highlight.

Remember the ‘Exploration-Evaluation’ infinite loop?

This gives you good control over your content strategy. And with this, you can help buyers exit the ‘Exploration-Evaluation’ infinite loop to reach the purchase point.

What kind of elements can be highlighted with schema?

    • Medical Condition (information regarding a specific medical condition)
    • Medical Web Page ( for a single-topic web page about a health/medical topic)
    • Drug (medical drug information)
    • Medical Guideline (a medical guideline)
    • Medical Scholarly Article (a page with a record, abstract, or full text of a medical scholarly publication)

Get yourself familiarised with how to employ schema markup on your website for local SEO, by clicking on this previous blog post.

Pro-tip: Generating schema code by itself does not guarantee a top spot on SERPs. It will only make it easier for search engines to interpret & most likely to be included in the first few search results. You need to back this schema markup with a niche-focused content strategy.

#4 Rank For Featured Snippets

Featured Snippets & Knowledge Panels are some typical applications of schema markups for local SEO. Refer to most useful tips by Neil Patel to rank better in Google’s Featured Snippets.

GOOGLE SERP- FEATURED SNIPPETS & KNOWLEDGE PANEL

Google Serp-Featured Snippets & Knowledge Panel

#5 Citations Audit

Moz offers citation checks that will ensure the consistency of Name, Address, Phone Number (NAP) listings.

The more consistent and greater your citations are, the more relevant your business is to Google crawlers. And relevance is a major factor in determining local rankings, according to this Moz study.

In addition to Bing and Google, you can list your business on other (reputable) directories – Apple Maps, Manta, Healthgrades.com, etc.

Now that we have mentioned Bing, is it time to start paying more attention to this search engine? Click here to know more on this.

How Can Medical Students And Doctors Enrich Online Medical Resources?

Medicine is one of those professionals to which the highest levels of ethics are applied. However, with the explosion of free information, “Dr. Google” began to don the role of giving free medical advice.

However, research indicates that patients largely understand the need for credibility when accessing an informative website. A 2017 study published in the Journal of Medical Internet Research revealed that patients mostly consider usability, simplicity, and source authority when looking at online medical information.

“This opens a gateway of opportunity for medical students, doctors to make a mark in the online world through building informative websites, and engaging content.”

They can empower patients with the skills to determine reputable websites themselves. This blog recommends using the STANDS technique with patients:

    • Source: Does the resource cite recognized authorities and provide their credentials?
    • Transparency: Is it open and obvious whether the site’s mission is educational or commercial?
    • Accessibility: Is the site available without registration, and is there a way for users to contact someone with questions or concerns?
    • Neutrality: Is the information available purely as a resource, or does the site benefit financially from what its users do (such as buying products or visiting advertised websites)?
    • Documentation: Is the site updated when needed by recognized medical experts?
      Security: Can users access content without forfeiting personal information?

We have extensively covered the essential functionalities of a Doctors’ Website in one of our previous blogs. Do check it out!

Local SEO vs Digital Marketing With Online Medical Resources

The upcoming year is expected to witness:

    • Voice-search and long-tail keywords that will answer health-related issues, explain surgical procedures, or even simplify medical terms will be preferred by the user.
    • Healthcare businesses will be proactive to rebuild or empower their reputation through trustworthy medical content and quality customer service for their patients in this period of “infodemics”.
    • Marketers need to adapt keywords to current search trends to stay relevant.

Based on the stats that we presented at the start of our blog, local search may be a key component of your overall marketing mix. However, it shouldn’t necessarily be the first place you start with your online marketing.

Other factors like the age of your website, availability of an in-house marketing team, and the physical location of your business may influence whether the local search should be your primary focus, or whether you might be better served to take a look at organic search, PPC ads. or social media first – which fall under the ambit of Digital Marketing services.

Once you find answers to these questions, you can move on to creating a marketplace website.

B. Comparing Ways to Build a Marketplace Platform

Now, let’s see the different ways in which you can build an e-commerce marketplace website. Keep in mind that use cases are different and it is not possible to figure out the best way to build one for every business. We will look at each option to help you give a better understanding. To get a precise recommendation, you need to get in touch with your e-commerce web development company.

1. Coding from scratch

If you want everything just the way you imagined and if you can hire professional developers, this option will be suitable for you. In this method, you will have complete access to the code, no third-party software, and complete ownership of licensing.

On the other hand, this approach is quite time consuming because a platform that handles all the transactions in a secure and smooth way is difficult to build. Even for adding custom features, a lot of experiment has to be done, which will definitely put a drain on your pocket.

What is the cost of this approach?

Building your marketplace website with the ‘coding from scratch’ method will start from $50,000.

2. Website builder

Creating a marketplace website through a website builder is affordable. You can choose Magento or Shopify as e-commerce tools and Joomla or WordPress as website builders. For more information, go through our blog on Best E-commerce CMS for Online Businesses.

These solutions come with extensive customization options. Choosing this method is one of the cheapest ways if you can handle plugins and other tools.

What is the cost of this approach?

Building a marketplace website through website builders will cost less than $20,000

3. Non-code marketplace builder

One of the fastest ways to build an e-commerce marketplace website is by using a software-as-a-service (SaaS) (eg- Arcadier) or a marketplace-as-a-service (eg-clouddesire) tool. This approach will get you one of the best UX experiences with minimal investment, and it is also fairly easy to manage your website.

What is the cost of this approach?

Creating a marketplace website via a non-code method will cost you less than $5,000

4. Build a marketplace without a code

If you have hands-on experience with no-code tools, you can create a marketplace website by yourself. If you don’t know what Webflow, Airtable, Parabola, and Jetboost mean, then it’s best to avoid this approach.

What is the cost of this approach?

Building a marketplace website with the no-code method will cost less than $6,000

5. Creating on top of an API

If you select this method, you can concentrate more on adding useful features to your website rather than giving too much focus on the basics. When compared to creating it from scratch, it is cheaper, easily customizable than a no-code tool, and you can integrate with third-party software. It is also reliable in terms of support and updates. However, you need to have a strong team of API developers by your side.

What is the cost of this approach?

Creating a marketplace website via the API method will cost less than $10,000

Frequently Asked Questions about E-commerce Marketplace Development From our Customers

Does the Marketplace Platform Provide Secure Transactions for Both Buyers and Sellers?

A marketplace connects both buyers and sellers in a single place. So, it must provide the most convenient experience for secure payment exchange. The marketplaces that the ColorWhistle team can build will have features like regular payments, automatic refunds, and quick payment cancellations. We have also worked on white label e-commerce projects that required advanced fraud prevention and detection systems.

What is the Best Way to Build a Marketplace?

It depends on your requirements. If you have a sizable budget, writing code from scratch is the best way to go. In other situations, options such as building a marketplace with open-source software, website builder, no-code marketplace builder, no-code tools, API-based marketplace, or SaaS tools might be better
