I am so very excited to leak out a sneak peek of the very first Indie Shopography premade website template design for Adobe Business Catalyst.
As my business has grown, and – with it – my hourly rates, I've found myself being more concerned with helping out creative entrepreneurs who are just starting out, as my own clientele is growing to be made up more of those that are a bit deeper into their businesses.
So, in order to step back to helping out creative newbies without sabotaging my own business I've decided to slowly begin to launch premade templates that will enable small business owners to get their shops online in a bit more economically friendly way.
I'm well aware that the internet is fraught with premade designs for websites, and it is important to me to set myself apart from all the others. Here's how:
- My templates are built for the Adobe Business Catalyst platform, giving you an awesome platform that usually costs thousands of dollars to get a site custom-built. Even premade templates for BC are usually well over $1,000, as they are built around so many features.
- My templates are designed and implemented using only those features that are most utilized by my dream clients. They will employ common features like email marketing and blogging, so you won't be wasting your money on a booking feature that you'll never use anyhow.
- These templates will be expandable, so if you choose to have an additional BC feature added, I will do so for you.
- Every design will be a limited edition. Once a set number of shops purchase the template, that design will expire. The designs will be exclusive enough that you won't be in a sea of millions.
- Each template comes complete with a how-to guide, tutorial videos, and step-by-step instructions on how to finish setup.
- All purchases will be compatible with my very own monthly hosting and support plan, so I'm here if you need me.
- If you already have a BC account with another designer, I will happily transfer the template to your existing account.
Preordering opens tomorrow, Wednesday, August 8th. Early birds get a discount, and email subscribers will get an even better one, so don't miss out!
This shiny new template will launch in a week, along with a full Q&A and feature list.
If you're ready to launch your business online, get out of a constrictive eCommerce platform, or just looking for something new on a budget, a premade template may just be solution for your creative business.
Though I've never believed that templates are an end solution for a small business, I do believe that they are very important for startups. Even I started with a premade template for my very first online jewelry shop. They're a great way to get your business up and going.
If you're interested to be among the first to hear about the launch of this first premade eCommerce template, and maybe get your hands on a subscriber discount, then sign up for updates. You won't be sorry!
