When you are the market leader like Agriya is for clone scripts, daily deal software, vacation rentals software and more, we always have to be a little bit candid and cautious when talking about our future plans because we know that many companies look to us to decide what to do next. Agriya prides itself on foreseeing future trends before they happen and is just one of the reasons why we have been first to market with our Groupon clone, Airbnb clone, Fiverr clone and Yipit clone to name but a few.
On the other hand, there will always be competitors following in our wake and we want to keep our customers informed and excited as we are about our future plans, but if it comes across as being a little bit too reticent with information we hope you can understand!
Service Based Websites
Agriya has identified several key verticals that are ripe for entering and revolutionizing for a global market. We will be creating a new business unit of the company that will build, operate and run these web based services. The ground work is almost done and development and customization has begun (it’s a cryptic clue, we know!) and we’re looking forward to launching the first of our web based services that will serve a specific (non-tech) vertical in the coming months. More service based websites will be launching over the coming year as we look to expand and become more than a products based company.
If you ever saw our profile on some of the popular freelance websites you may have wondered why we called ourselves “LAMPC” (we pronounce it “lamp-see” in the office). The reason is that back in the olden days (about 8 years ago!) PHP and CGI were the open source programming languages of choice for the vast majority of websites. Fast forward to 2012 and there is a myriad of open source languages with their own advantages and disadvantages. Agriya is already branching out from PHP and developing client projects in cutting edge languages built specifically for the needs of todays web applications and we have hired new programmers to specifically learn these new languages so if you want to get a website developed in an open source language other than PHP, CGI or Ruby let us know because we’ve now got the expertise to help you.
Product Development Driven By Agriya Ideas
One of the most innovative developments that came out of 2011 was the launch of our FundProjectsWith.me concept where we took a crowdsourcing approach to developing new products based on specific consumer demand and taking the guess work out of predicting what will be popular in 6 months from now (although our list of successful products that were the first to market really speaks for itself).
Late last year we rolled the FundProjectsWith.me functionality in to our ever evolving Agriya Customers website and it got a new name: Agriya Ideas. The concept is still the same, you suggest which products you would like to see, we take a democratic approach with people voting on projects to take forward to funding and then anyone can contribute money to the project to ensure it gets developed. As a reward for helping to fund a project the investor gets up to double their money back (depending on sales) along with helping to shape the direction the project takes.
All future Agriya products will be driven by this crowdsourced method so that you can get the products you want and Agriya can focus its resources on projects people will buy. If you have an idea for a project, just head over to Agriya Ideas and let us know.
Relaunching Agriya Forums
In the middle of last year we had to shut down the Agriya forums due to far too much automated spam and vBulletin’s inability to effectively stop it. This was a shame because it was a good place for the community to hang out so we have made plans to resurrect the forum using our brilliant Discuzz software – with some modifications of course! We hope to have this new dicussion forum tightly integrated in to our Agriya Customers area and you’ll be able to meet, hangout and chat to other customers, share ideas and get help on specific questions about the software.
HUSH! We may have said too much already but gamification for Agriya is here and it’s going to rock your world!
New Project Management Tool For Clients
Based on the remarkable success of our Products Bug Tracker which is based on the famous Mantis software, it incorporates a super friendly user interface for the frontend and a developer friendly backend so that everyone gets the best of both worlds. We’re now working to roll this solution out to our customization and service based projects.
Of course, there are a whole host of additional plans that are in the pipeline but for the sake of confidentiality we can’t announce them just yet!
All in all, 2012 is looking to be an even more successful year than 2011 as we look to consolidate our number one position in the clone scripts market, improving our current range and providing the best software with the best support and updates.
The reason everyone is buying clone scripts is because people want to make money on the Internet. When you read about these high tech companies getting $10m or more in venture capital funding it’s enough to make most of us virtually salivate at the thought of having that kind of cash to build a business.
The reality of the situation though is that like any business, you need to put hard work and time in to making it a success. If we look at some of the most successful sites that have used Agriya’s software like GigBucks, Zerrk, CrazyBees, PartySurfers, Spurr and more they’ve invested time, money and effort in to building their business.
The first tip that we have is to be realistic with your expectations. Success isn’t going to happen over night and none of Agriya’s products can be called ‘get rich quick’ solutions. What they are are platforms around which you can steadily build an online business and hopefully make a pitch to venture capitalists or angel investors within 6-12 months of your launch.
If you are building a business from scratch then it will take a lot longer to achieve a good revenue compared to if you are using one of Agriya’s products to compliment an existing website or online community that you have previously developed.
Invest A Resource
The second tip for making money with Agriya’s software is to invest a resource that you have. This mostly means investing money on marketing such as AdWords, Facebook Ads, SEO, Social Media, content creation etc. but another resource that you can posses is your time. If you don’t have the money to pay for your promotion then you need to invest your own time in to this.
Investing your time is not a one off activity, it needs to be consistent and done regularly. You can’t build your website, spend a week promoting it and then sit back to reap the rewards, an hour a day everyday will be far more effective than 50 hours in the first week.
If you are building a community based website using our Youtube software then it needs to be seeded with content, information and more. Give people a reason to come back to your site, make sure there is lots of content for them to see and of course ensure that it is constantly updated so if they come back again they discover a whole new load of information. People will only come back to websites when they know the information is fresh and relevant to their interests.
Focus On A Niche
We don’t know how many times we keep saying it, it’s probably a lot, but we’re going to say it again: focus your website around a specific niche. Yes, Groupon and Airbnb have gone global by targeting the mass market but they have an army of marketers, the best PR agencies getting their websites in to the mainstream media and millions of dollars of funding. By contrast we find most of our customers are usually on a tight budget and don’t have the resources to go head to head with the big boys
Sidenote: That’s not to say our software can compete with the biggest players in your market, it can, but we’re interested in seeing your success and helping you do what’s going to be right and successful for you.
If you are going to purchase our Airbnb clone, focus on a country, or better, a specific area of your country. Or focus on a specific type of living quarters like only spare rooms or only places that cost $50 or less. If you want to purchase our Etsy clone, then follow Etsy’s business model and focus on a specific type of product (Etsy have cornered the handmade market so don’t target that niche!).
Be A Person
To get traction to your website and start getting people to not just visit but hang around, signup, buy something etc. is going to take some time. You need to set yourself apart from the crowd and become a real life person that people can interact with rather than “just another clone”. If you start participating in forums and blogs related to your chosen niche, produce great content that’s posted on your website blog then you start to become the authority within the field. People like to deal with other people, not faceless websites with a generic sounding “about us” page.
If you purchase our Fiverr clone script for example, you can start with a blog that highlights people posting gigs, you can interact with people in forums that target your niche so you can get yourself known and taken seriously. Being a person that others can relate to does take time and it’s not going to have a measurable amount of success to begin with but over time your authority builds up and the reputation of your site grows as a result.
Most of Agriya’s platforms are about enabling you to build a community and service which means that you will be dealing with customers and stakeholders on a daily basis. Do what you can to exceed expectations whether it’s in terms of customer service or the value you provide when someone buys from you. If someone mentions you or a business in a tweet, take the time to respond to them, if someone emails asking questions a prompt reply is going to give you a better chance of converting that person in to a customer. In relation to this advice, make sure it’s as easy to contact you as possible, be very clear about what the person is to expect after contacting you and most importantly make sure you keep your promises.
These are just five basic steps you need to take in order to start earning an income with Agriya’s range of online business platforms. There are many other steps you can take and our team of MBA qualified Customer Relationship Managers will be happy to assist and guide you to create and grow an online business that makes you money.
Very soon we will be releasing our next product, either called Pixel or Photoz, depending on whether the marketing team wins or the developers get the final say.
Check out the screenshots below so you can see what to expect when it is released.
Anytime you have a question that pops into your head in the middle of the night about how good that Ewan McGregor performance in Trainspotting really was, or what people really think a Core2 Quad adds to a Guitar Hero performance over a Core2 Duo, who you gonna call? A feature-packed YouTube clone? You’ll probably want the simplicity, the businesslike directness, of a well-moderated forum on movieforum.com or Tomshardware.com, or a Yahoo Answers clone.
You’ll be pleasantly surprised at how someone seven years ago had the very same question you have now, that was answered by eighteen people. Not all the technology-enabled bells and whistles can take away the value of the simple written question and answer. But as you go visiting forums around, you’d be surprised how often you see unimaginatively designed, messy-looking reforms that could look right at home at the turn of the century.
You should try visiting a state-of-the-art forum on the Internet maybe one like, ChatDaily or Spunner, to see how they really win. One of the best ways to be encouraged to design an engaging well thought-out forum is to use great forum software. There are quite a few out there, a few new kids on the block with the latest and greatest ideas, and a few that have been around the block a couple of times. Tangler is a brand of forum software that has been a part of the attempt to reinvent the forum for quite a while.
Ahsan Technologies’ Discuzz is the latest player in this field, and has drawn a lot of positive reviews for its customer support and its modern feel. The best innovations in Discuzz are its abilities in offering SEO-friendly URL’s that get the rankings up; Google started indexing forums recently, and this feature is a product of its times. Discuzz’s inviting administrator interface is another in-demand feature. The forum is clearly the hottest trend in the Web 2.0 world. One needs a forum, actually, to keep up with all that goes on here.

It’s time to celebrate the New Year with great fervor. It brings along a fresh stock of new days that inspire us to walk new paths, to explore life afresh and things to add to our lives what we probably missed out in the previous year.
Before stepping into the New Year we would like to look back on our journey through 2008. So here’s a review of our company, in the year of 2008.
2008 is one of the most precious years that we have had since we began in 2000. Ever heard the saying, “Individually, we are one drop. Together we create an ocean.” Because of our excellent staff and their dedicated team work, we delivered impressive results in the software field and stand ahead of our competitors.
We launched many products in the past year, as milestones in our career such as HD FLV player, Markit, Volume, Quick Cam, Rayzz Lite, smarter script etc, to fulfill human needs and there are more on the way.
As per our company’s motto, we delivered on-time quality services and flexible solutions to top business organizations worldwide, resulting in increase in client weight and sales rate.
We changed the look and feel of our official website; to give a more professional and unique look to it. Since, our clients and sales have increased multifold. They are world renowned enterprises, like Google for their open social container, CISCO, for more ventures, and many others.
Our clients simply love the ability to interact with us seamlessly through our helpdesk at their convenient time, even when they are half the world away. We constantly notice a gradual increase in enquiries for our hot new products like Rayzz, Kootali, Orbit, HD Player etc. Within few hours of release of our new product Markit, we received many orders for the same, proving that it is yet another of our genius products.
Our products have reached people globally and earned us fame along with money, and we even earned a mention in the Forbes magazine.
As a practice, Agriyans constantly work on products to add new features even after their release to make them the best in the market.
We consistently add new staff to improve our services and expertise in various domains, and have reached a large number of 150. There is also place for foreigners, the number of foreigners working at Agriya increased to five.
The management has decided to shift to a new workplace elevated in style, as a New Year gift for their employees.
Happy New Year!
We wish that all your dreams come true.
May the New Year be filled with joy,
wonderful gifts and goodies, too.
In this modern era, a huge number of website visitors come via search engines, looking to buy products and services or for information. So getting a website to the top position in the search engine result pages is essential these days to enhance online sales.
Well, how can you achieve the top position in the SERPS? Implementing proper search engine optimization is the only long term way to get a good position for a long time in top search engines like Google, Yahoo & MSN and so on.
Search engine optimization is also known as organic SEO. It is a set of methodologies used to optimize your pages for keywords that funnel targeted-traffic to your website resulting in increase of sales. It is important for any business to make use of this medium to get greater visibility and override the competition.
Below are some of the endless reasons why SEO is a must for your marketing strategy.
The first and foremost thing is brand awareness. If the web site holds high ranking in the search engines, there is a chance for more people to see the company’s name and become familiar with it. So then, they can reach public even if they haven’t purchased anything.
Almost everyone knows that SEO can bring in loads of traffic that will actually boost their business. And traffic is exactly what every business needs, whether it’s online or offline. SEO will also help you convert visitors into paying customers once they find your site.
You can reduce the advertising budget via SEO process. It helps you increase your results in the organic search engine listing. So that consumers are more likely to purchase from you. Other than that if your site is well ranked in search engines, other webmasters will automatically approach you to suggest possible partnerships, which will reduce the amount spent while doing “active” promotions.
Because of the tight competition for top search engine rankings, SEO services are in demand, and running an SEO firm is turning out to be a very lucrative business. Agriya offers world class SEO services to clients throughout the world. They provide the following things:
- Guaranteed top rankings in the search engines
- Greater visibility
- Target traffic to your site
- Promote your business globally at low costs
Listen up, folks!
We have a big problem.
Agriya has a new product launching soon and it’s causing something of a kerfuffle in the Agriya offices. Feathers have been ruffled, knickers have got in a twist and people have been unfriended on Facebook. Yes, it’s really that bad.
There’s even talk of handbags at dawn.
The problem comes down to what are we going to call the next awesome Agriya product?
A little background…
Our next new product is going to be a social bookmarking script, which will allow your users to bookmark all their favourite sites and discover new sites. It’s like one big search engine, except the users decide which sites are important, not a great big (evil?) spider.
So, obviously we have this amazing new product, but what good is a product if it doesn’t have an incredible name?!
Help us choose the name, and stop this wanton act of unfriending people on Facebook. It’s gone too far already!
And to keep this as unbiased as possible, and to become my best friend, make sure you choose ScrumptiousLoading ...
