Here’s what that means:
The website template industry is very crowded. The CEO of Livebooks attributed their recent struggles and near demise before being bought by Wedding Wire to this very fact: “Patrick acknowledged that liveBooks has struggled financially in recent months. ‘We got to the point where we needed both financial support and people to continue to do what we’ve been doing.’ Patrick attributed the problems to increased competition–there are now 25 or 30 firms providing websites for photographers” (PDN Pulse story here). And, all of these companies want to attract a huge number of users so they aim their offerings at amateurs.
We cater to professionals. We created the first scaling template over 5 years ago because it didn’t exist and professionals wanted one. We were first with video, iphone sites, ipad sites, redundant navigation, social media icons, custom typography, ftp access, wordpress blogs, clean url’s, unlimited bandwidth, unlimited images, upload your own logo, change your own colors… because professionals wanted this
Now we lead the industry with professional features we invented:
- Patent-pending front facing site editor that is push-button and drag-and-drop.
- PDF portfolio creator
- iPad App (hand out ipads with your site app locked on the screen)
- Combine images, video and text in any gallery
- Place images, video, links and social icons anywhere on the menu
- Custom thumbnails for each gallery with 3 sizes, 4 positions and 4 styles
- EditDrop.com client area
We will continue to lead: we put an update button inside our admin so you can enjoy our latest features for life.
So, the industry is huge and you may not need what we offer (we get that) but if you need professional features and industry leading innovation: Welcome.
