[url removed, login to view] is a website builder that offers users the ability to make their own websites and online stores - it also has an eMarketing enabler. The system is complete and is operational and functional.
As the user base of the website builder expands so the call for plug-in code enhancers grows.
What is work in progress is to build a library of plug-ins that users can use to add functionality to their websites.
At a simple level a plug-in may be a simple Marquee that scrolls text, pictures etc. With this "plug-in" listed in a demo "toolbox" website users could just copy and paste it into their websites. Whilst scroll boxes, marquees etc may be simple to an HTML programmer it is not to "do-it-yourself" website builders drawn from small businesses without IT staff.
At a more complex level plug-ins include code for:
- event bookings, bookings for bed and breakfast accommodation establishments, reservations for small hotels, online appointment scheduling etc
- eBook sales off the website
At a simple level there are thousands of sets of open source code available for blogs, social networks etc and many have been accumulated in the library of plug-ins already. The library is not at this stage online.
We see that the simple code sets will be listed in a free "toolbox" and that complex code may need to be sold to recoup the cost.
WHAT IS REQUIRED?
For aspirant vendors of HTML etc code to register on [url removed, login to view] as a SELLER, open a free trial website and acquaint themselves with the system and suggest useful code that can be added to a "toolbox" of enhancers that can be added to a library for users to use in relevant websites.
We have programmers but maybe you have a good idea or maybe you have the code eg for a small hotel > a room availability system that talks to a booking system that plugs into the website pages which allow access to the HTML code view in the Website page editor.
Many plugins are used by website builders so everyday offerings are not sought - we seek good ideas that will sell.
There are two ways of finalising - we will buy the ideas or you can run your own "toolbox" shop on the hub and sell your code directly to users.
Firstly, please email your ideas to detailing what you would like to offer - how much you want to sell the plug-in code for or if you want a free online store on the hub to sell the code to users as functionality enhancers.
We have no deadline - maybe you will have a good idea in the future ? Maybe we will build on a relationship from small beginnings?
