We talked to Nirmal Gyanwali of Nirmal Web Studio about web designs, and he had the following to say:-
First of all, how are you and your family doing in these COVID-19 times?
Nirmal Gyanwali: It was a bit stressful for a couple of months as there was so much uncertainty in the market and the direction world was heading. We completely stopped following the news, social media, and noise and started focusing on things that were under our control. That helped us stop panicking about the COVID in many ways. Since then, things are heading in the direction that we wanted to go without too much hindrance.
Tell us about you, your career, how you founded Nirmal Web Studio.
Nirmal Gyanwali: I discovered my passion for the web industry when I was 18 years old; that’s when I started building sites for small businesses. I spent the following decade in senior corporate roles – from Web Designer to CTO positions. I realized I could provide better value to small and medium-sized businesses and genuinely help them achieve their online goals, so I founded my own boutique agency with my wife in 2015. Thus, Nirmal Web Studio was born.
There are numerous players in the online space, and unfortunately, businesses on budgets are often lured by web developers offering attractive low prices, many of which leave their clients with half-completed projects due to inexperience and poor cost management. These customers come to us quite regularly for support, and through these experiences, our determination to help smaller companies achieve their online goals has grown even stronger.
Nirmal Web Studio has gone from strength to strength, and the key to our success is the combination of our strong technical expertise in online channels and our genuine passion to achieve amazing outcomes for our clients.
While we focus on providing online solutions to smaller businesses, we have also delivered significant projects for the likes of The University of Technology Sydney, Fastway Couriers, Western Sydney University, The Canterbury-Bankstown Council, Transport for NSW, The Star, North Sydney Council, and several other large brands.
Today Nirmal Web Studio is one of Sydney’s highly recommended boutique WordPress agencies with hundreds of highly satisfied clients.
How does Nirmal Web Studio innovate?
Nirmal Gyanwali: We are focusing on one thing and trying to do the best. WordPress is our core expertise, and we utilize those skills to help businesses achieve their online goals.
Being a technology company, we always try to be on top of the game. One of the key things that set us apart is our core values– both in terms of who we are and what we deliver for our clients.
How the coronavirus pandemic affects your business, and how are you coping?
Nirmal Gyanwali: We had a few slow days for a couple of months when there was a high level of uncertainty in the early days. After that, we saw more demand in the market as main retail businesses were shut down and trying to pivot with digital strategies. We were busy with many new projects and helping our existing client base. Actually, we hired a new Digital Growth Manager in Sydney to scale the business.
Did you have to make difficult choices, and what are the lessons learned?
Nirmal Gyanwali: One of the things that we learned is the sooner you take action and focus on things that you can control, the better position you will be in in the long run. Following the crowd and worrying too much about the economy and future outcomes didn’t help at all in any way.
How do you deal with stress and anxiety?
Nirmal Gyanwali: That’s one of the things I had to learn during the pandemic. One of the important things I had to relearn was having clarity on the direction you want to go and things you want to do in a day to day life. We started being more clear on our goals and prioritizing things that helped us stay calm and focused. In the early days of the pandemic, naturally, we were trying to catch many things to keep up with the market and balance out the business’s growth. But that was doing more damage than good.
Who are your competitors? And how do you plan to stay in the game?
Nirmal Gyanwali: Because of our hybrid business model, we see most of our competitors as partners than competitors. Most of the local agencies based in Sydney may seem like competitors, but in fact, many of them are our partners, and we have been collaborating in many ways to help each other. However, we have a few competitors in the market who have a similar business model and offer similar services. But the biggest difference we see is most of the agencies focus on being a full-service digital agency. We have a singular focus and try to be the best in one area and be the leader in the industry.
Your final thoughts?
Nirmal Gyanwali: 2020 has been a very difficult time for many businesses and people worldwide. Let’s help each other during difficult times and make 2021 the best year. Just focus on things that you can control; we can certainly resume back to normal. And believe there is always a light at the end of the tunnel.
Lastly, if you are looking for a trustworthy team to grow your business with high converting, impressive, and intelligent website design at a price you can afford, we would be very happy to help.
