I’ve been consulting and building web apps for clients for about 5 years now. In the recent times, my focus has turned towards e-commerce web apps.
Recently, I’ve been getting really strange queries to build e-commerce websites as low as $100 because the client has spoken to a bunch of other developers who are offering their services at $100.
I think this is an effect of the no code movement and the fact that translating a design to a website doesn’t take much now that we have wordpress site builder tools like elementor and divi.
In the e-commerce world, People who can setup a shopify site now call themselves “developers”
I used to run my dev shop under the brand instadukan (dukan means shop in Hindi)
Given the nature of the market I’m thinking its best to turn to products for the e-commerce community.
so I’ve revamped the site from a dev shop to a product offering
and starting out a community for business owners and service providers
where business owners can talk to each other and grow…
and service providers can find business owners to work with
What do you think of my assumptions and the path I’ve taken?
also let me know what you think of the new site :)
