WeCodeFuture is a private digital marketing company based in Noida, Uttar Pradesh. WeCodeFuture was founded by two brothers named Mohd. Aaquib Shakeel and Mohd. Aadil Shakeel in October 2019 with the objective of “Let’s grow together.” Before 2019, both brothers were working in Pune, Maharashtra, with small startups. However, both brothers had a thorough understanding of digital marketing services’ future and significance in the upcoming years.

Likewise, other small startups, WeCodeFuture also had challenges in front of them for capital and place. Both brothers were unable to own a workplace and collect the assets due to financial instability. Although, they had firmness for not letting their dreams go off due to these factors.

They wanted to commence this company to make the digital marketing services accessible to everyone with pocket-friendly financial plans. Both brothers had optimism for directing the small startups to adopt digital marketing solutions to meet the accomplishment at affordable prices.

WeCodeFuture provides a wide range of digital marketing solutions, including website designing & development, technical SEO-audit, content development, mobile app development, lead generation, logo designing, etc. Their services promise the startups and big chain companies to build a better future by taking the business to the next level. They have served their services to around 2000 new startups and 500 big chains around the globe. With the assistance of WeCodeFuture Services, these businesses have reached an unexpected height of growth and success within a few months.

What's your backstory and how did you come up with the idea?

According to people around us, being from a middle-class family and having big dreams doesn’t seem apt. However, these brothers wanted to break this taboo and stereotypical mindset that success only comes to rich people who are enriched with all the necessities. Simultaneously, they had a deep fear, sleepless nights, and multiple other challenges to bring themselves on the ground. Although, they had stronger visions than challenges.

In July 2019, both brothers resigned from their companies to pave the way for their business idea. While resigning, both brothers were aware that they would be going through multiple challenges for instance-

  • Having no support at all from family, friends, and close ones.
  • Financial challenges
  • Listening up to the discouragement of people
  • Not possessing any place to implement their ideas

The determination to make their business plan implementable was stronger than the odds that were around the corner. However, time was flying rapidly, and they hadn’t any foundation yet. They requested their friends to help them out, but none was there for them.

Don’t give up on your dreams; the next moment could be a miracle.

After going through these dilemmas, both brothers headed home with dissatisfaction and stress. Despite being under these problems, they were not ready to give up on their dreams. Both brothers started their way once more from their home. Likewise, other small startups, WeCodeFuture had the biggest challenge in front of them is to build trust, reliability, and authenticity amongst the people. They were working as hard as possible to get their first project. They worked hard for a month but couldn’t achieve anything so far. Time passed on, and they were financially destroyed due to not having any source of income.

Both of them started giving up after working day and night for almost two months. Then, they restarted applying for jobs due to financial needs and other expenses. They headed back home after the interview. While heading back home, one of the brothers got an Email from the startup of New Zealand. This startup was interested in our digital marketing services and eCommerce development. They had words with each other over calls and messages for the contract. This contract was not only the first project to them, but it was the hope, courage, and hopefulness to continue their dreams.

They worked on this project with high zeal and dedication to assist this startup in reaching the height of growth. While working on this project, they got some projects simultaneously. Both brothers were working day and night to assist the other startup in catching the growth.

After a while, they got multiple projects to work on, and they could not fulfill requirements alone. Thereafter, they planned to own a place in Noida, Uttar Pradesh, India, to expand their set-up a little more.

WeCodeFuture started its journey from Noida to become one of the most affordable digital marketing solutions companies worldwide. At present, WeCodeFuture has 50+ employees that are currently working with different profiles. The directors and the employees have still been working hard with high dedication and efforts to turn their dreams into reality. The directors of this company believe in superiority, efficacy, originality, and worth over quantity, and earning money. Founders of this company have been through scenarios where giving up seemed an easier option than fighting against the odds.

The COVID-19 journey has not been that easy, especially for small businesses. COVID-19 demanded businesses add more safety protocols and support to ensure safety. Small businesses, especially cafes, restaurants, bars, and hotels, were more impacted to keep their business operational after reopening. They had a big challenge to maintain the crowd while ordering the food to contain the spread. Most of the restaurants failed to do so due to not having any practical and appropriate way.

By keeping all the factors in mind, our team took the initiative to build the DIGITAL QR-CODE MENU to offer a safe, advanced, contactless, and eco-friendly way of ordering food. Adopting the digital QR code was offering multiple benefits at pocket-friendly prices. The prime benefits of using our software are;

  • Multiple QR codes
  • Different food categories
  • Offline QR code downloader
  • Menu sharing on social platforms
  • Digital payment methods
  • Separate analytics dashboard
  • Smother communication

Describe the process of launching the business.

We started marketing our Digital QR code menu through different channels such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, paid Ads, blogs and articles. Our team started spreading the advantages of adopting the Digital QR code menu over the conventional menu. Within a month, there were more than 300 restaurants that were getting our software subscription. Over time, we could provide our service to more than 1000+ restaurants across the globe.

Giving up was an easier option than continuing with the WeCodeFuture company!

Insights Of The Company

on-building-a-woocommerce-plugins-marketing-services

How does a restaurant QR code work?

Restaurant QR code menu cards have two different mechanisms. These mechanisms are client-server-based and server-owned by us. Both mechanisms are different from each other. To know a little more, read the below differences;

Client- server-based mechanism - In this model, you get full access to the software. You can make customization and changes in the QR code menu by your end without our interference.

Server owned by us - In this model, you will receive our services with hosting, but you will have limited access to the software. You will be able to make the limited changes and customization as per your necessity. To get full access to the ecosystem, you will either have to update your current plan into the client server-based or contact our support.

The process of QR code working is Scan ……> Order ……> Pay

Since launch, what has worked to attract and retain customers?

There are mainly three ways that assist us in bringing the customer closer to our services. These three ways are social media marketing, Google Adword, and email marketing through campaigns. We get the huge traffic relevant to our services by these ways. To know a little more, go through how we execute these ways.

Social Media Marketing - As we all know, social media marketing is one of the best and practical ways to find out the targeted audience. In social marketing, we run the aids that appear between feed and stories to only those searching for the relevant things regarding our services. Social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter assist us in building awareness of business services, which leads to high conversion rates and traffic.

Email marketing - We ran the campaigns through email marketing to understand the problems of the restaurant's owners after unlocking. We asked them some questions, and one of the biggest challenges was maintaining mass in the restaurants. Thereafter, we introduced our digital QR code menu to them. Restaurant owners found our Digital QR code menu highly beneficial. With our digital QR code menu card, they were getting multiple benefits such as a separate analytics dashboard, easy process, and effective in managing the crowd.
