The online world of startups has been growing at a rapid pace. It seems like every new founder has some exceptional idea to bring more value onto the Internet. Beta launches are so frequent because it’s a smart method to build a following before actually getting the product out in the open.

When building a new project you often need to decide how to handle the backend. Should you build something from scratch, or toy around with a CMS engine? I have preferred using WordPress for many online projects because it provides a repeatable strategy for quick launches with fewer issues.
In this guide I want to introduce how you can build quick products online powered by WordPress CMS.

I want to use this article for sharing a few tips and techniques on building startup landing pages. The process is not easy and doesn’t provide any foolproof method. Interesting features will change based on the type of service or product you are selling.

There are examples of single technical founders or even a team of 2-3 people building the initial frameworks for rapidly advancing Internet startups. You will see this type of startup more commonly in mobile app stores where the barrier to entry and profit margins are very high. But even websites and other startups can thrive in an environment with very few team members.
In this article I’d like to delve into the concept of a startup and how to adjust the mindset of your team. It will require dedication from every person and long hours are commonplace in startup environments. But success is all about how you work and your willingness to change what isn’t working. The efficiency of your team will depend on everybody’s ability to communicate and share ideas with each other.
