    I was digging into the proposal tool, which is amazing by the way, and I saw the images you had for some of the website templates you offer.

    I cannot find any info about your templates or website design services in general. Where can I find more info about this?

    We are planning on putting more on our website. Until then - call your AM for sample website designs.

    Yes, we are very excited about our web site services.

    Being a white-labeled provider presents a unique challenge. Where most web development firms will present a portfolio of live sites they have built, our client's white-label needs prevent us from displaying our work.

    We are in the process of building a generic library of baseline builds that can be used as samples.

    Mike, if you don't mind, I think I will hi-jack your thread here to provide updates from the web development team.

    Thanks!

    Yes! update incoming...

    We have challenged ourselves to create a web site development package that is affordable, SEO ready, has a short turn around time and is easy for clients to manage. We are well on our way.

    Yes, we are using WordPress. There are certainly other quality content management systems (I am personally fond of a few), but for its SEO value and ease of use for end clients, WordPress is the clear choice.

    The greatest challenge in web site development is scope control. For you as resellers and for us as a white-label provider, it is make-or-break important to clearly define the scope of a web project from the very beginning. As we solidify our development process we are focusing on client expectation as much as we are on the nut and bolts of coding and hosting.

    There are generally two routes to take in today's web development marketplace. You can take the expensive route involving extensive customization, long development timeframes and a huge budget. Or, you can take the bargain approach and face developer abandonment, missed deadlines and an ineffective, malfunctioning final product. Neither of these approaches generally build with SEO in mind. Here at HubShout we are going to change that landscape. We are going build inexpensive web sites that are optimized for visibility and supported by a reputable firm that is always a phone call away.

    OK, I think I have rallied myself enough :) Time to get back to work!

    thanks Chris. I think web design is another great "entry" product that leads nicely into ongoing seo services.

    as a new reseller, I had planned to focus on seo... since the web design marketplace is saturated.

    after getting into it a few months, I have found that there is still a market and would help build an integrated solution.

    So, it is January 2013, is there any update on where to find the portfolio of the website services section? What would be really handy is what a client gets for each price point. I do have a print out of the Content - 5 pages for $999 suggested retail.. but other than the VetHubs site are there other images we can show to clients about selection? Thanks..Maybe I am just not seeing it in my dashboard, if I am missing it, I apologize.

    I am very excited about our new website reseller program. We have been working on this everyday here at HubShout. Our goal is to launch this program in Q1 of 2013.

    A lot of work has gone into this and the wait is almost over. Rest assured, it's coming, and it's going to be awesome.

    I too am waiting for the website reseller program and what to expect. I have been "pained" with offering clients website development in conjunction with SEO or other online marketing services. I only offer web design if the client agrees to marketing, otherwise i refer them to a web designer. The "pain" in web development/design that I have experienced is that most clients (local) lag on getting me the content in time, so a website that I can build in several days can take months trying to follow-up with client to get all of relevant content, sign off on milestones, etc. What is even more of an issue is that, 90% of the time we cannot start SEO or most marketing without having a website to point back to... I just went through this again with 3 clients. I almost want to stop providing web design services all together but it is a good way to get clients on SEO, PPC, etc. Now, I could just give clients a content deadline in the contract, right? Been there, done that ... So, I am looking forward to when your website reseller program is launched and I too would like to see more samples. I want to keep web design simple, giving client some design theme options for their niche and then go from there as the other pain point is that once the sight is done, then sometimes clients want to make dramatic changes that have nothing to do with what they chose and agreed upon. Trying to keep clients happy so we can get to the online marketing...
