Business Catalyst Adobe has announced the end of development for Business Catalyst as of March 26th, 2018. New sites will no longer be available for purchase starting with June 18th, 2018.

TALK TO US TODAY ABOUT COST EFFECTIVE MIGRATION TO WORDPRESS

Looking for someone to move you from an Adobe Business Catalyst website to an alternative? We can help!


The Creative Collective are highly experienced Adobe Business Catalyst website designers, having created hundreds of websites on Adobe Business Catalyst since 2009. As you may or may not know, Adobe officially announced in March 2018 that it will discontinue the Business Catalyst service by 26th March 2020.

Business Catalyst will switch off the service by June 2019. This means any Business Catalyst site still active after this date would be removed from the Datacenter’s and deleted permanently.

What does this mean?

Putting it bluntly, you all need to think about how you will break the news to your clients and start creating a migration plan.
As of 18th June 2018 no new sites will be able to go live and all existing site will moved to monthly billing.

What happens to my Business Catalyst website now?

All clients on Business Catalyst sites now need to think about moving their sites to another platform.
For some this will be an easy and welcomed shift. As a company we can help you transition to Shopify and WordPress.
For some this will be an easy transition and for others with extensive and complex ecommerce sitea, it will be more difficult.

Are there any other options to specially handle a Business Catalyst website?

 
There might be. And we’re looking into it.

But this announcement has caught nearly all the Business Catalyst community complete off-guard, so we’re all looking for easy transition solutions.

How can I find out more?

You can read more about the announcement on the Business Catalyst website and in the Business Catalyst forums, and follow the “event” on their social channels too.
There’s no need to panic, but it is time to start looking at your options.

Our team are ready and available to help with any migrations if required in the upcoming months, and provide advice for any complicated migrations.

Should you wish to discuss this please do not hesitate to contact us.

BACKGROUND ON BUSINESS CATALYST WEBSITES AND OUR ASSOCIATION WITH THEM


We have been working with Adobe Business Catalyst since 2009 and our Founder Yvette Adams even had the privilege of meeting the original co-founder of Business Catalyst, Bardia Housmann on a trip to Silicon Valley in May 2013.

Business Catalyst websites include everything most people need to run a successful online business including Content Management System (CMS), E-Marketing, Customer Relationship Manager (CRM), E-Commerce, FAQs, Members Area, Forums, Affiliate Programs & more, all in the one system.

Our team have produced dozens of Adobe Business Catalyst websites and understand the Business Catalyst platform at a deep level, as well as the design trends that drive change.

We have created everything from simple but effective Business Catalyst websites right through to complex and large ecommerce sites on the Business Catalyst platform, and were well aware and equipped to design Business Catalyst sites that are mobile and tablet friendly.

TESTIMONIALS FROM OUR WEBSITE CLIENTS


Naomi Andrews, National Business Development Manager, Digital Careers

“The Creative Collective had a complex challenge to pull together a brand for us given the number of stakeholders and different target markets the brand had to appeal to. The workshopping process was thorough and The Creative Collective were very responsive in our requirements to finalise the end result. We’ve had a lot of positive feedback as we’ve used this brand out in the marketplace. It really seems to be resonating with the target markets.”

Marie Walton, ArtinU

“Yvette and Kat are the most energetic, vibrant and trend-setting team I have ever encountered. Always cheerful, smiling, superbly intelligent and on-the-ball they make the graphic design process a wonderful and happy adventure of discovery. What’s more I feel “safe” in their capable hands as beyond their obvious talents they work to the highest standards of ethics and integrity which can be a rare commodity in today’s commercial world. I retained the Creative Collective on the basis of my initial impression of Yvette herself and as such my expectations were set “very high” – I was not disappointed – my expectations were met “admirably”by both Yvette and Katrina. What more can I say – they are the best! “

Jacqui Spencer, Wisdom Frontier

“I always felt like i was in good hands with Kat and the other members of the team that helped me. Kat is expert at coming up with fabulous ideas and was really helpful in bring about the vision I had in a grounded and innovative way. Thanks Kat!”

“If the concept wasn’t enough, the marketing has blown me away. I’ve received an enormous amount of positive feedback from all genders, young and old who all comment on the name/design The Creative Collective came up with for me. I love driving around in my Brew Captain branded vehicle and handing out the professionally designed marketing items. This is my first time in business for myself and everything from start to finish was very simple, and easy working with these guys. It was a real pleasure and we’ll continue to use them as the business grows from a one man show to hopefully a full franchise.”

We engaged the Creative Collective for a website refresh on our tired online presence. The team were professional, clear, technically proficient, helpful and also provided timely guidance on how to get the most out of our project. I will be using their services again and thoroughly recommend engaging the Creative Collective team for your website / marketing needs.
