- Mrs. Blake, motocms.com is nowadays the most famous and successful web-company among others similar in the Internet Universe. Could you tell us few words, please, about history of your company?
- First of all, let me thank you for inviting me to the interview. It’s a huge honor and pleasure for me. Really, never before I have been interviewed for a magazine. I will gladly give answers to your questions.
Talking about MotoCMS history… Frankly speaking, I was not a part of the team who founded the company, but I know a lot about the start of MotoCMS from Demetrio Fortman, our CEO. The company was founded in 2008 and it was a Flash-powered CMS with amazing photo galleries and effects. Flash was popular those days and thus being a user-friendly solution, MotoCMS (formerly known as Flash Moto) became a small shark on the market. I say ‘small’ because the team was not big and the company was very young, but already a ‘shark’ because the potential to grow and beat competitors was huge enough. Customers number grew day by day, the system was continuously improving.
But nothing is everlasting. Flash has been less and less in demand and the decision was to develop a new website building system, MotoCMS HTML. I joined the team in 2013 and it was the time we started promoting the system and selling it. By the way, my first task was to write a guide on using the system :).
And again the success was reached, the customers loved the builder we’d created. Though in 2014 we came up with an idea to create something even more powerful than HTML builder, and that was MotoCMS 3 responsive website builder launched in June 2015. That’s how our best product was created.
