How It Works
Design + Code + Integration + Quality all in one simple package!
Ready out of the box!
Enjoy what it feels like to work with BC pre-integrated templates
As opposed to other online vendors of premium templates, our templates come pre-integrated with Adobe BC. This gives you a better starting point and allows for quick edits and content entry for a fast completion shortly after purchase.Details
What makes TribeVita Different? The biggest difference between a TribeVita Template and other template solutions is BC pre-integration. Common modules and features that most BC websites implement are all ready and wired up correctly for easy management. You can begin modifications to design and content entry right away.
Why are TribeVita prices higher than other templates online? BC pre-integration is the main reason our prices are different from other template offerings as more labor is involved. As an example, you could purchase a great premium template with wonderful design and solid code from ThemeForest for around $25. It comes with all the PSD files, HTML, and CSS you could hope for. However, you need to integrate these templates into the Adobe BC platform. To do it right takes experience, talent, skills, and various considerations.
What kinds of elements are ready? TribeVita Templates come pre-integrated into BC with a lot of elements. A typical integration project in BC would require set up of dynamic menus, core template architecture, content holders and all the popular modules such as: blog, marketing opt-in fields for newsletters, HTML Email template, web forms with workflow, news & announcements area, ad rotators, and simple web apps. With our TribeVita Templates, most of these elements are pre-integrated and Ready-to-Go.
We'll have our template setup in your partner portal in no time. Because of Business Catalyst's replication feature we can have your new template up and running in no time. Why wait four weeks to have your template integrated when you can have it ready to go in one business day. Depending on your experience, the time it takes to properly get things ready for your client can vary from several hours to days. If you don’t want to sweat the details or you’re a beginner that likes the convenience of a professional setup, our templates are Ready-to-Go out of the box!
Image is everything, you only have one chance for a great impression
The biggest challenge for most web design projects is having enough budget to meet expectations. Most designs that use templates lack the creative elements, usability strategy, and overall professional presentation that is required for a successful online presence. Our templates are produced by talented designers that work on major brands and custom work. You can now have great design at a great price.Details
Who designs TribeVita Templates? SimpleFlame has a team of talented web designers packed with a lot of experience. Color theory, typography, negative space, grids, usability, critical paths, intuitive flow, design trends, and a good eye are just a few of topics/skills we challenge ourselves with on a daily basis for all projects. We don't view templates as secondary to large or custom projects. Our team believes that every project, no matter how simple or small, should have great design.
Design Budget. The alternative to using templates is designing projects from scratch. We know this process well and it is very time consuming. In fact, we go through standard design process for every template that is designed for TribeVita. We pick a company type, perform research, create a brand, strategize around BC functionality, create wireframes, and finally design Photoshop concepts. No shortcuts. However, by providing templates to a wide audience, we get to leverage a volume scale and that is why we can provide high quality design for a fair cost. You save time and money. It's a win-win for all.
Creative Assets. Photoshop source files are provided with all of our TribeVita Templates. This makes re-skinning, customization, updates and re-engineering of our templates possible. Like everything else, we pay attention to details and want the experience of working with our assets to be pleasurable. All of our PSD files have carefully organized and labeled layers.
Solid Integration from SimpleFlame
Built by a team that has more than 350 integrations under their belt
The quality of any integration is 100% indicative of the amount of support you will give your client going forward. SimpleFlame has built some of the most complex BC installs on the platform. It's with that kind of experience that these templates have integrated.Details
Integrated Correctly! So what exactly does that mean? It means that each feature has been thought out and integrated into the proper Business Catalyst functionality. For example, if you see a menu on any of our templates, it will be managed by a dynamic menu. Most integrators merely take a menu structure and throw it into a content holder (yet another BC feature) and leave it up to the client to "figure it out". Our mission is not accomplished unless anyone with basic skills can manage the site easily and effectively.
Solid Code. Before we begin creating the template within Business Catalyst, we first cut the website into XHTML/CSS (and in some cases HTML5) code. Then, and only then, does the integraton begin. If you don't start with a solid code base before integrating your project into BC, you better be prepared for a lot of support.
SEO Optimized, out of the box. We believe that there are three fundamental components to solid SEO. Semantic code, keyword rich content and a social influence. We don't provide support for writing good content and creating social influence, but a solid foundation of code increases the effectiveness of search engine rankings. We do it by marking up the template with solid, semantic code that properly describes the context and prominence of your content. Long story short, we won't use divs in place of h2 tags... ever.
A much faster starting point.
I need to turn around this project quickly to remain profitable
There are many opportunities where a base Business Catalyst project would be ideal. The biggest challenge is the initial design and setup. This takes too much time, which is why many professionals turn down the project. TribeVita Templates give you an amazing starting point!Details
Design is set. Designing, prototyping, and/or customizing interface templates take time. BC Experts have already solved special considerations for the most commonly used modules, layouts, navigations, and structure within BC.
Core architecture is set. The key to managing any CMS website is only as good as the integration quality and template structure. Managing templates, content holders, navigations, and modules is what it’s all about. If the core setup isn't right, be prepared to provide more support than you have to. If the core setup is good to go, content and product entry is a breeze.
Content/Product Entry is the final step. As soon as the re-skinning process is complete, fulfilling the website with content is the last step. InContext Editing, WYSIWYG editing capabilities, and the overall CMS BC platform allow content to be easily managed.
