Frequently Asked Questions About Webtacular™
The Easiest Website Builder You'll Ever Use
What is Webtacular, What Is a CMS, How Does Webtacular Work, and more
What is Webtacular?
Webtacular is a full-featured content movement system designed to help professional web and graphic designers create websites fast. It lets you create word-class sites with things like blog, calendars, message boards and shopping carts without any programming or coding knowledge.
Best of all, everything is totally integrated to work together. Because, let’s face it; it’s not that cool if your website users need one login for the message board, a different one for the blog and still another one for the shopping cart. With Webtacular, everything works together.
What is a CMS?
CMS stands for content management system. It's a program built into your website that allows even very non-technical people to be able to easily make updates and changes to the website themselves. This includes things like editing text, adding photos, creating new pages, changing the menu and much more. Webtacular is one of the most user-friendly and easiest to use CMS' available anywhere.
Can I use my own domain name for my website?
Yes. You can purchase any domain name that you wish and use it for you website and email. If you don’t have your domain name yet, it’s not a problem. We’ll set up your website in a temp directory on one of our dummy domains until you have a chance to purchase a domain name.
How can I make money with Webtacular?
You can easily make money with Webtacular. First off, Webtacular helps you create sophisticated websites much faster than you normally could. Secondly, Webtacular is branded with your own company’s info and logo, so your client thinks it’s your very own private-label content management system (CMS). We charge you a monthly fee to use Webtacular, you can charge your client what ever you want.
Here’s an example:
Let’s say a client asks you to build a website for $2,500. You could suggest that they pay you $1,000 upfront (setup fee) and then $60 a month for the site. The client wins because it's more affordable to pay an on-going monthly fee rather than a large up-front payment. You as the designer win because you are creating an on-going revenue stream for possibly years to come. Just imagine if you had 20 or 30 sites set up like this. Plus, by using Webtacular you’re able to build and launch world-class websites in far less time than you could otherwise. You can get more websites completed in less time and make more money.
How much does it cost?
We’ve intentionally keep our prices low so that it’s affordable to freelancers and small businesses, not just large ad agencies
and huge design firms. It costs $12 per month, or $9.60 per month if you pay for the whole year in advance. Check out our sign-up page
for more details on our pricing options.
Does it include email or webmail?
Your clients can have the powerful email/webmail for a small extra charge. Webtacular uses SmarterMail web server to provide you with a user-friendly and feature-rich email system. It works with MS Outlook, Mac Mail, iPhone, Blackberry, Thunderbird and any other popular email system. Plus your clients can use webmail to access their messages from anywhere in the world.
Can I purchase and install Webtacular on my own server?
No. Webtacular is a web-base software program that you subscribe to. Unfortunately, it is not available to be installed on your own web server. The good news is that this saves you a lot of time and hassel over other CMS or website builder software that you have to install and configure yourself.
Is it easy to use?
Yes, it’s very easy and intuitive. Webtacular was designed by designers for designers with easy of use and simplicity in mind; but don’t let that fool you. Despite its friendly, well though-out interface, it’s still packed with all the powerful features you need to quickly create and launch world class websites.
How secure will my website be?
With Webtacular your website and your data is kept very safe. Our servers are safely kept in a secure datacenter with 24-hour armed security and nightly backups. Can you say that about your home or office computer?
Do I have to pay for web hosting too?
No, that’s the best part. It’s included in the price of Webtacular. All websites need to be hosted somewhere anyways, so your clients are already familiar with the idea of a monthly fee to keep their website up and going. So as part of your sales pitch you can explain to them that for just a little more than the price of typical hosting, you can set them up with a powerful content management system. And you can mark up the monthly cost of Webtacular to whatever you want, thereby creating an ongoing monthly revenue stream for yourself.
Will you ever contact any of my clients directly?
No, we will never contact your customers for any reason. That’s our promise to you. As a professional designer, you’re our client. That’s why we give you the ability to brand Webtacular with your own logo and company info. You’re client will think that you have your own private label content management system. We bill you, and you bill them.
Does it work on Mac or Linux?
Is cross-browser compatiblity important to you? Then try Webtacular. It works fine on any computer with a modern web browser.
