Meet Rafael Romis of Weberous Web Design

Today we’d like to introduce you to Rafael Romis.

Rafael, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
Weberous was born out of a SEO company. I started by marketing websites through a very formulaic approach and selling ads on them, until that formula changed, and the websites had to be better. That is when I hired my first designer, and then with the help of my brother Mario, Weberous came to be. The company started as a small team of marketers turned developers and has since grown to an award-winning team of 15 and counting, with such amazing clients, ranging from small business to international corporations!

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
While the company has been growing consistently since year 1, it hasn’t always been easy. It’s easy to close your first few deals through family and friends, but then trying to sell strangers with limited experience and no portfolio is hard. Then we got our first big account, and then our first award, and it became easier. We started being selective, and carefully choosing who we work with to identify those that are good fits for the company, as we are for them.

We’d love to hear more about your business.
Weberous is a full service creative agency, specializing in web design and development. The company has won multiple awards for their website work, and has worked with companies like Disney, Lionsgate, HBO, xPrize, and more. What sets them apart is that even though they keep growing they still focus on customer service and making sure that each client feels special. That’s key to building long lasting relationships.

What were you like growing up?
I always wanted to run my own business — it started when I was a little kid charging our parents tickets to see my friends and I on our little theater show, to then delivering groceries to family friends and billing them for a delivery charge and a small margin on their order, and finally selling sports collectors cards in high school. I loved economics and math because I felt that they could be applied right away, unlike the theoretical subjects.
