Model Answer 1:
‘Unique Design’ is a website designing company headquartered in Delhi. This is a small IT firm that mostly deals with the designing of a website and provides other web related necessary services.

The company is located in Shahpur Jat, opposite to the Asian Game Village in New Delhi. The company serves different clients with the services like programming, graphic design, web hosting, web management, web consultancy, Search Engine Optimization (SEO), and few other specific tasks related to online business. This is a small company and thus the relationship with the clients and the company authority is friendlier than the large corporations. The company has designed and developed stunning websites and graphic designs which have been admired by both national and international clients.

I am familiar with the company as my friends are the founder. All the founder members of ‘Unique Design’ are my friends and we have been brought up in the same locality in New Delhi. Even we share some familial relations as well. They started the company in 2009 and experienced different ups and downs to run the company. Besides, the initiatives undertaken by the company is also publicised in local newspapers and media. Often they have also advertised to grab the clients’ attention. Gradually, they started receiving clients and grow their business.

The company is run by an executive committee which is made of a chairman and two directors. All of the executive committee members work here. In fact, they hold the positions during any meeting or at any conference to represent the company. In the other times, they are the employees of the company. Besides, there are five other employees working with the company in different roles including designing, programming and content development. There are nine members altogether in this IT firm who are managing all the daily activities.

This is a successful company is several aspects. Firstly, the company is growing. Earlier, in the starting days, the company had only three staffs (the executive body members) who had to cover up all the necessary works. They also funded the firm and born all the expenses until they experienced profits. Unique Design has successfully completed numerous projects and still many of the projects are in the pipeline. They are successful because they have created employment for six other staffs, they have shifted to a new location, their office set up is decorative, they have special equipment for performing specific tasks and overall they are growing gradually. Now the Unique Design might be a small company but for their extraordinary performance and expanding client list, it is anticipated that within the next five years, it will be a leading IT Firm in the country.

Model Answer 2:
My friend David has opened a home delivery company to deliver goods and services in his own locality. His company has become successful within a short time after initiation. Thank you for the question and I will describe the matter in brief now.

The company office is located on the top floor of the apartment where David lives with his parents. This is a crowded locality and people need numerous daily necessaries. And if the things could be sent to the doorsteps, the consumers become happier. So, David opened the company in this suburb of Florence in Italy.

I came to know about the company first from David. He told that he wanted to start a company that will deliver products and services to the doorstep of customers when the customers will buy them from online stores. Though the idea was old, and there were some suspicions about the company’s success, finally it survived. The beginning was a bit troublesome for it. Finding the customers was the most difficult part of survival. Besides, maintaining the service quality was another challenge. However, David did not compromise with any of the matters and started working hard on the project for about one year. He is now successful and has expanded the company.

David is the owner of the company but for executing the other responsibilities, he has some assistance. In the beginning, David used to do all the things and even he played the role of delivery man as well to grow the business. Now his company has been expanded to some other levels too. It has become possible for the earnest efforts of his staffs and other officials. Everyone related to the company is sincere about their duties and responsibilities. So, they gained popularity in the locality.

This is a successful company for many reasons. It delivers different products and services as a third party. When people order something from any online store located in any specific locality. This company has become a successful one within a short time after establishment for its devotion to the business. It never makes late to deliver the products. For instance, you bought an earring from an online shop and the company will deliver the product within the next six hours to your doorstep. This company has a close connection with the online shop owners. When the order is placed in the shop, the company agent is informed about that specific order and moves to deliver the product or service to the destination. The company is committed to gain customer satisfaction and works day and night. The company agents are ready to serve you even at midnight. For all such reasons, I think this is a successful company.
