Marketing Services: Improving Our Managed Website Offerings

We’ve heard your feedback and made changes to this service to give you more payment options, deliver websites faster, and add more value to your client base.

Starting on September 14th, 2020, partners with access to Marketing Services will be able to resell our enhanced managed website offerings. 

Why should I use this service?

Every single business needs a website that looks great, loads fast, and is easy to navigate. Without a powerful website, your client is losing potential customers. That’s why they’ll seek your services and expertise. 

However, you have a big challenge in front of you: How do you scale your business without worrying about hiring, training, and overhead costs? 

With Vendasta’s Marketing Services, you have more time to find new clients and grow your business. If web development and design are not your areas of expertise, you can trust our team of experts to get the job done under your brand. 

How does it impact you?

If you enabled and added any of our Website Creation or Website Maintenance & Management services to your store, you’ll temporarily have access to both our previous and new offerings. 

Please, note that we’ll stop accepting new orders for Website Creation on December 1st, 2020.

Partners who didn’t add Website Creation to their store by September 14th, 2020 will lose access to the previous service and see only the new offering.

What’s changing?

Payment Options

With our improved service, you can pay monthly or upfront for the website. If you opt for the monthly plan, we’ll require a 12-month commitment. Alternatively, you can pay upfront for the website to enjoy our special rate.

Each website package comes with a limit of product uploads. If you need more, you can purchase our Additional Products & Images add-on.

Website Copy

A stylish website can make a great first impression for your client's business, but the content is what will hook their audience. Our dedicated team of writers will create customized website copy for your client at no additional cost, subject to the word count limit stated in each package. 

We’re also making Website Copy available as an add-on for all the packages, so you can purchase it if you need more words to deliver your message. 

Maintenance & Support

Website maintenance and support are included in our monthly plans at no additional cost. 

If you’re paying upfront for your website, you’ll get 12 months of website maintenance and support. After the 1-year period, you’ll need to purchase our Website Support add-on to have access to the team.

Hourly fee

We carefully designed 3 packages that should meet most of your client's needs and allow us to build and launch your websites within 10 business days. If you need us to make more customizations to the website, we can do that through our Hourly Charge add-on.

In fact, we’re even lowering our web development hourly rate to help you make higher margins and give your clients what they want while we build the website of their dreams. 

Before you purchase this service, we kindly ask you to reach out to our Websites team or talk to your sales rep. We’ll scope your project out, send you a quote, and charge you per hour.

IDX

If you want us to build a real estate website, we have great news for you! 

We’re introducing two add-ons: IDX and IDX Support. 

With IDX, we’ll work on the integration of your chosen IDX plugin to meet your MLS needs. We will set up searches and integrate any widgets based on your markets.

Our team can also handle all phone calls, chats, and emails related to IDX issues on your client's website if you purchase our IDX Support add-on.

Get our best advice

Our partners love Marketing Services for several reasons and one of them is to have access to a team of experts in different areas. If you’re reselling our website services, but don’t feel prepared to discuss web design, site architecture, and integrations, we can help you with that.

If you purchase our 30-Minute Call add-on, a member of our Website team will be available for a 30-minute call with you or your client. You can use this time to brainstorm ideas and get our advice on how to make your newest website project a success. 

More templates

We’re planning to add new frameworks that you can choose from. Our team is creating stunning website templates that will be added to our gallery every month.  

How do I purchase this service?

  • Choose if you want to pay upfront or monthly for the website
  • Pick the package that best fits your needs
  • Find and enable the corresponding product in the Marketplace
  • Activate the product on your client’s account and fill out the order form
  • We’ll review your order and let you know about the next steps

What happens after I place an order?

After you follow the steps above to place an order, our team will reach out to you to confirm it or ask for any additional information. 

Once we have all the necessary information to build your client’s website, the timeline begins. We can take up to 10 business days to launch the website, depending on which package you chose.
