FAQs

A:
Most retailers currently do not have a site designed to reach the available potential that exists for this industry. Retailers work hard to build their business and rarely have the time to put into marketing and maintaining an effective website. The WebKit Program makes it extremely easy and effective to keep a site fresh, current and interactive. At market value, a website of this scale developed for a single user would be priced in the range of $7,000 - 10,000.
A:
Depending on the package you choose, the low monthly fee includes secure Vortex hosting, Vortex CMS (content management system) and the option for Vortex CRM (customer relationship Management) and Vortex SEO (search engine optimization) systems. If you consider the combination of your existing monthly fees for just hosting and e-newsletter services (approximately $30 - $40 month), the features outlined in these packages are an exceptional value. With a WebKit Package, the cost per visitor to your website is typically less than 5 cents! If your website generates only 1 extra sale per month you’re ahead.

Additionally, If you currently rely on a programmer or designer to make your site edits, you’re not only at the mercy of their schedule, but the charges absorbed for even a small amount of work don’t come close to the savings offered with a low monthly fee. With a WebKit package you get unlimited site updates.
A:
Getting started on a new venture can have its challenges, so customer support is an anticipated and expected part of the process. Easy support access is available through the Vortex CMS dashboard, either by phone or online. Take the time you need to get familiar with your new website and rest assured that the support you need will always be available.
A:
Once account arrangements have been finalized, we’ll start working on getting your site live right away. Currently we are working to coincide the launch of the WebKits Program with the October 1st launch of the new winexpert.com website. Transferring your domain and customizing the template of choice will take approximately 2-3 weeks.
A:
Unfortunately, no. These sites have been built on to the Vortex CMS platform and the features are a part of that structure. We can certainly take your existing site and re-skin it to Vortex allowing you to keep the look of your current site, but in order to get all of the features offered in these Webkits, you’ll need (and love) the benefits that come with Vortex.
A:
Any content that you would like migrated over to your new site will be transferred during the template customization and is included in the package price.
A:
No problem - we’ll design one to suit your tastes. Custom sites are an additional $995 to the package price.

Testimonials

"We love the new website! It's great to have a professionally designed template that we also have full control over. The vortex system is easy to use and navigate. Most anyone will find the software user friendly. We receive a minimum of one to two content updates (news, articles, recipes, etc) a week, which has exceeded my expectations.

The constantly updated content is valuable to our clients, keeps the site looking fresh, and saves us a lot of time by not having to do all the work. It's the best of both worlds by also having the ability to add our own personal content when and where necessary.

Overall we are extremely pleased with our investment and wouldn't hesitate to recommend the webkit service to anyone."

Jamie & Leslie, Just Fine Wine, Port Coquitlam, BC

"I just really want to thank-you for putting so much thought into the development of these sites. Whoever designed these must have been a wine retailer at some point."

Jeff Rex, BA Winexpert, Kamloops, BC

"Thank you for your support over the last year. Your response to any question I may have had was incredible. The conversion from my old site to my new site was flawless and seamless. Maintaining this site compared to my old site is a breeze. It saves me a lot of time each month. Thank you for the great job."

Dale Hofer, De Vine Vintners, Vernon, BC

"I went into this expecting a really nice looking website but at the end we received so much more. Our website is now the cutting edge in the retailer side of the on-premise wine making industry"

Michael Druce, Beyond the Grape, Port Moody, BC

"Let me begin [to say] that the three of us are absolutely delighted with the [webkit] website. I was very pleased with the attention we received from Sharkbite and Azaris. You were very caring and listened to us and I was absolutely stunned at the template that Sharkbite built. I thought we had chosen a standard template but they went one-step further and created a beauty. Vortex is very user friendly, and from the SEO perspective, we are getting clicks from an end of the business I never thought possible."

Heather Robertson, Bill & Marilyn Walters, Brew Cellar Inc., Mississauga, ON

"I have nothing but good things to say about our website. Learning to use Vortex was fairly painless and the 'mass emails' and 'contacts' are quick and easy to manage. Whenever I have had a question or asked for help with making an edit, [web support] has been quick to respond. I think that kind of support is absolutely vital especially for some retailers who may not be very confident with using Vortex."

Chad Conley, Peninsula U-Brew Winery, Sidney, BC

"We are very pleased with the website. Any of the changes that we requested have been completed in a timely manner. We are getting 40+ hits a day and the number seems to be growing. We figure that 30% to 35% of our new customers are coming via the web.

The Customer database is great; it makes it easy to find customers and to update/change their data. The emailing of customer birthday cards is terrific and our customers love it."

Paul Sass, The Home Vintner, Calgary, AB
