We started developing Edicy in early 2008. Been in the web design business for already 10 years, we still started from scratch. There were a lot of dogmas to be thrown away and a lot to be learnt along the way.

History of web agency business

In the old days, websites were born in the same manner attorneys do their sueing business. Every working hour spent on designing and developing a website was billed from the customer. In addition, a hefty license fee was added for the content management system— a custom built buggy monster developed in house by every web agency.

Those initial investments turned out to be actually recurring. Every three to four years customers felt that their website needs a revamp or a total redesign as design styles shift as quickly as fashion trends. Running costs (hosting, updating the system, editing the content) seemed so small in contrast, that they were added on top of this with no one even caring.

The new model

That's the main reason we built Edicy in the first place — you can build a website in minutes with it. And it will instantly have a beautiful design and great system for the recurring price of quality hosting.

The difference of what we were doing before Edicy and what we are doing now can be illustrated with the following graph:

Costs of building a website
Customers have won.

Of course many companies still need a custom design and integration of external systems for their website. It will never change—truly great design is unique, whilst truly great systems are standardized.

There are a number of agencies building beautiful custom websites on Edicy, while Edicy itself remains the same for all the hundreds of thousands of users.

Most of Edicy users are happy with building websites on their own upon a standard design theme though. One can personalize a design by just laying out content thoughtfully.

The other side of the coin

We aren't here just for spreading love, peace and happines. There's something more in Edicy for us. It's the business model.

By selling Edicy subscriptions for €6 per month we earn almost nothing from you. At least when compared to the old times where system licence was €2000 and monthly support and hosting fee piled up another €100 per month.

But by selling hundreds of subscriptions each month, it starts making sense.

Cashflow in a web service business

We have won too.

I like to do business where everyone wins. You get the costs down and quality up, we can focus on building a great system and agencies can focus on building great sites.

That's why.

    After being in relationship with Wilson for seven years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that don’t believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I meant a spell caster called Dr Zuma zuk and I email him, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the fake ones out there. Anybody could need the help of the spell caster, his email: spiritualherbalisthealing@gmail.com or WhatsApp him +15068001647 blog: spiritualherbal.blogspot.com you can email him if you need his assistance in your relationship or anything.
