Placester Aggregated Reviews
Placester is OK, but I’m picturing better websites for a lot cheaper.
Placester offers a basic but functional IDX enabled website for I think $60 per year for NAR members.
If you want to go DIY you can get a pretty sweet wordpress theme for ~$60 and pay another $10 or so per month for hosting. The main benefit over Placester is that the themes on the market today and WAY nicer and have a billion and one options for customization. WP Pro 7 from themeforest is a solid pick,
Package Deals. What I call “package deals” are companies that offer you a website as a part of an overall offering. For example, if you’re spending advertising dollars with Zillow, then they offer you a template website for $10 per month. As another example, Placester’s lowest website package includes a lead management/CRM system, and the whole bundle is $150 per month. They also offer a $450 per month package that includes additional offerings. These websites look great, function well, and are pretty customizable in terms of appearance. If you’re wanting to just do the bare minimum website, and don’t have a big brand to give you a ‘free’ website, these are your best bet.

As a web agency we never could and never will be able to escape the urge of building things.
Among million other things we played with an idea of text-based games and the last piece that was missing was the story itself. So via in-house outreach platform we found two established writers that believed in the project and agreed to participate.
Shout out to Richard Abbott who wrote Fraud on Thetis and Eva Pohler who sent us a huge draft we are still reading through.
At some point we realised that list building, fetching contact details & outreach tech work just as well for b2b lead generation
Once, we fell in love with ecommerce, because of short feedback cycles on marketing & development efforts.
Today we ship into production inhouse SaaS project - AVOKADO - the web app for learning languages with flash cards.
The year after we built it we realised how long is the road map ahead & what resources we'd need to promote it and decided to put it on hold.
One day as we ship GRIN tech v3.0 into production we'll distrupt the language learning market with Avokado.
We love Wordpress and recently shipped two plugins into open beta for commercial sale.
v0.1.2.2 King The Monk - wordpress plugin to virally grow your email list
v0.1.2.1 Plain Conversions - wordpress plugin to convert your visitors
v0.1.1. Expanded core offering to visual productions
It's Autumn 2017 and GRIN tech agency's website is born.
We have it saved for the history.
