So far during this featured week, I’ve discussed the eCommerce capabilities of LightCMS, as well as the platform’s aim to help web design agencies through its Developer Program.
And while it’s true that I’ve already explored the broad features of LightCMS’ Developer Program once already, there are two areas in particular that stand out which I didn’t touch on nearly enough.
Those areas are; customer billing and white labelling.
Billing a customer each month or year can be a chore within itself. Making up invoices, sending them off, and then chasing them when they’re late. It’s a potential nightmare that has become a reality far too often for most web developers.
However, LightCMS’ Developer Program cuts that problem off at the root.
Customer card details can be added to LightCMS in order for them to be automatically billed each month. Plus, any price can be set, meaning that the amount of profit made per website is totally up to the developer.
Notably, over $3,000,000 has been billed through the LightCMS Developer Program thus far. So, it works.
Another dimension of the Developer Program that empowers the web designer, is white labelling.
White Labelling, or private labelling, allows a company (in this case, the LightCMS Developer Platform customer) to rebrand a product (in this case, LightCMS) in order to make it appear to be their own.
In other words, a web design agency can rebrand LightCMS in order to re-sell it to their customers.
The end customer will only see the logo and branding of the web design agency they signed up to work with, whilst all the functionality and flexibility is provided by LightCMS. The third, silent party.
White Labelling a CMS isn’t exactly a new practice, and there are indeed a few other platforms out there offering similar options.
However, I must say that LightCMS’ entire Developer Program is one of the most well packaged re-seller programs from among the user friendly website builders out there on the market.
It’s designed to be re-sold to customers and clients who aren’t tech savvy, and I genuinely believe that it’s one of the select few content management systems that is simple enough for anybody to use, yet complex enough for a developer to churn out professional websites.
Our LightCMS featured week wraps up tomorrow, so be sure to stick around for it.
