Our much awaited Zoholics (Nov 20-21) India event just got over, and the response has been amazing. Thank you for showing such an overwhelming support to our efforts, to give the aspiring entrepreneurs from India, an introduction to cloud. As Sridhar Vembu (our CEO) said “It’s our way of giving a helping hand to small enterprises and saying ‘thank you’ to India whose innovation has fueled our global business.
It’s not just an event, it’s our mission to enable Indian entrepreneurs with resources they will need to bring their business online. ‘Company seems to be more on a mission, than business. Respect.’ said Avlesh Singh (@avlesh) through his tweet.
For many, an ideal business would be one which grows steadily year after year, chasing the dream of monopolizing their market. They would love to become an irreplaceable constant for their customers in an ever-changing world. However, in the process of growing, many businesses lose what they were loved for.

It is time we gave our websites’ design its due respect.
Customers can be . Their choices are heavily biased towards outward appearances. Why do subtle differences cause so much chaos in your sales? Are appearances so important? Should you treat your products like placebos, and invest heavily in pleasing your customers’ whimsical palate?
The internet is a promise for value. For both the surfer and the creator, the internet promises value. Website builders try to show the creators a way to create without issue. Despite the hundreds of options in the market there is, sadly, an absence of a complete builder that is accessible to the ones without a big paycheck. We are changing that. With Zoho Sites, you can now create, edit and host beautiful websites, for free!
Let’s think about why do website builders ask you to pay. Of the numerous website builders in the market, the most prominent distinction among the ‘best’ seems to be their marketing budget. Focusing primarily on visibility, these companies have been spending increasing amounts to catch eyeballs. One even spent millions for its 30 seconds of fame! Despite the excessive spending, these companies are barely reaching break-even. They are getting their visibility, but low-conversion rates were hurting their ability to generate revenue enough to justify expenses. The model had proven to be unsustainable and unstable. Read more
