Builders,

Not too long ago, we shared our most exciting launch of Studio Store with you here. It feels like yesterday! Studio Store, a range of pre-packaged apps - beginning with e-commerce and delivery - was designed to let businesses go digital faster and at a fraction of the cost of building from scratch.

As you probably know, the first apps we released served the specific needs of businesses across e-commerce and delivery - such as flower shops, grocery stores and clothiers, and could be delivered to a customer in as little as 8 weeks. Since then, we’ve witnessed a ceaseless disruption across all industries globally by COVID-19, stopping, changing or morphing the way businesses have interacted with their customers. So, we wanted to help more!

Today, among those most vulnerable are the smaller businesses without an online presence that depend on their customers to walk through their doors. While we know that there remains a lot of uncertainty right now, SMBs are presented with an opportunity to rethink how they do business. This is the time when having a digital presence will be critical, which is why we are now extending our offerings to all SMBs- to help them leapfrog ahead.

Studio Store now offers apps for beauty, fitness, food, healthcare and education services.

Which means if you own a spa, gym, restaurant, school, college, hospital or dental clinic, then you can also benefit from quick digital transformation at a small price...and the FIRST 3 MONTHS ARE FREE!

Are you considering going digital for your customers? Interested in knowing more about the individual app offerings? Here you go:

The Studio Store apps are currently offered to English speaking customers across the world. The Studio Store is priced at $500/ ₹9,999 per month. Here’s cherry on top: This cost includes building your tailor-made app (which you’ll get in as little as 2 weeks), maintaining it and even cloud capacity to run and scale it.

Here’s how Studio Store works

1. Kick-off call: Pay a refundable deposit, discuss your idea and share your branding.

2. Track progress: Simple dashboard shows your build’s progress, or chat to our experts.

3. Launch app: 8-12 weeks (although in some cases, as little as 2 weeks) after your kick-off call.

4. Keep it fresh: Your app moves into maintenance and cloud. Your business grows.

The takeaway

In short, this is what makes Builder Studio Store the best app builder for you:

1. Simple: Software as easy as ordering pizza.

2. Fast delivery: In your hands in as fast as 2 weeks.

3. Personalised: Your branding is all customers see.

4. Aftercare: We maintain your project to keep it running smoothly.

5. Cloud: Get your cloud capacity included in a low monthly price.

6. Trusted: By global brands like NBC Universal, Virgin Unite and BBC.

We’re not done yet! We also don’t take any cut of sales or transaction fees (other than those charged directly by a payment gateway). Unlike other SaaS providers, the customer gets a copy of the code after 24 months. We bet you don’t need any more reasons to jump in? Click here to get started.
