If you are a small or medium sized business owner looking to grow your business by using the vast audience-reach of online platform, you are probably thinking of building a business website. A business website is an investment through which you can connect with future-customers of your businesses from anywhere in the country or the world, at any time of the day. If you are not there to represent your business 24 hours a day, your website will do it for you.
With that being said, the most trouble that people have while building or owning a website is that it normally takes days, or even months to setup a website. Furthermore, if you need to make a few changes in the website because you suddenly got a new great idea for your website, the web developer will not be happy to change the features in the middle of development. Truly speaking, it is a hassle getting your website ready. Lastly, after your website is all made, your next problem is that you would have to contact your developer every time you need to change something in your website. If your business requires that you post new updates in your websites such as new news articles, new photos of your products (maybe new arrivals of clothes in you shop), or maybe a new event that you want to promote through your website, you are in for a troublesome time! You have to contact your tech-person every time, maybe even pay him for it, and wait for him to update your website.
But wait. What if you could change whatever you want in your website- the design themes, adding new photos and text, anything- all by yourself without having ANY knowledge about programming?? This is where PAGEVAMP comes in. Pagevamp is a website-developer that lets you:
- Create your new website in a minute by taking data from your business’ Facebook page.

You can also chose which contents of your Facebook page you want to show in your website.
A brief History of Pagevamp
Determined in starting his own business since he passed his intermediate study from Rato Bangala School, Atulya Pandey, co-founder of Pagevamp, used to always play with different ideas of starting a business. In his dorm room in The University of Pennsylvania where he did his bachelors from, he used to sit with his two dorm-mates, Fred and Vincent, who shared similar dreams, on Fridays discussing ideas for business instead of going out for parties.
Their dreams slowly started taking shape in 2012 when the three started an agency, PMB Creatives, from their dorm room in The University of Pennsylvania, USA, to create websites for businesses around their locality.
Later on, however, they saw a problem with their business- they were building websites for businesses but almost none of the people knew how to update their website. The business owners for whom they made websites used to call them for the smallest of changes. That is when they thought of the idea of using a platform that everyone knows how to use (Facebook) to update their own website. Hence, the idea for Pagevamp was born.
The most interesting part is that the three co-founders were in the university studying economics and none of them had an engineering background; they were self-taught!
Although Pagevamp started out as just an idea, it is now being used by over 10,000 businesses in 80 countries.“The turning point moment is when you stop looking for alternatives. When we started working on Pagevamp, we had other businesses, and we had other options like we could apply for jobs later but the moment when it gets real is when we made up our mind that we are not building Pagevamp to put into our resume later; we are building it because we are dedicated to our customers and we want to make something big”, said Pagevamp co-founder Vincent Sanchez-Gomez.
