FULL GOT THE IDEA? NEED THE TECH? CHECK v6's HOST MY APP!
Early in development, but already proving popular with a small groups of invited customers is v6's "Host My App" service.
We had seen a flurry of requests coming from customers for new apps to support the likes of blogging, online stores etc. We had a full Content Management System request from one.
This got us thinking. How about, instead of providing the support we simply cut to the chase and offer these apps to support these options in a "Host my App v6, as I don't understand, nor need to .." way.
So, we have taken a blog request, a store request and a CMS request and are using the customer requirements to develop this new product that will simply the setting up etc and get customers - old and new - up, blogging, selling or whatever they are selling fast then before.
There are some limitations, we are going to be suggesting that the Apps used are available already; eg the likes of WordPress for blogs, Cactushop or ZenCart for online stores etc. There are other of course, but we are looking at perhaps the more obvious ones first.
One customer was up and adding products to his store in 2 hours, his first sale was 15 hours later!
