We don't nickel-and-dime you. We simply give you the whole thing; a brand new website, apps, brochures and much more.
1stbase's auto-generated products puts your content on 20 different platforms, products and media. From website to brochures and even chat bots!
To be able to show your content on as many media channels and platforms possible, 1stbase provides you with a great number of 'products', each custom designed for you and your brand.
The many 1stbase products, allows your content to exist, be distributed and viewed on virtually any platform or media channel. The latter obviously increases your potential audience immensely; your message is absolutely everywhere people look. Not only does it help with reaching more people in more ways, it also gives your brand a vastly more impressive digital footprint that search engines will pick up on; being everywhere your customers and search engines look, greatly helps with your search engine rankings!
Before 1stbase came along, only big companies were able to spend the time and money to create a presence on these media channels and platforms individually. Now, anyone can afford to be across all the different media channels and platforms, thanks to all the 1stbase products that use your content to create the right experience for your user, regardless of which media channel or platform they come across your content.
Different media channels and platforms tend to highlight different aspects of your content, simply because they tend to cater to different use cases; websites are the go-to way to interact with your brand and offer a rich experience, while apps are typically consulted on-the-go and possibly outside cell-coverage, requiring they work off-line and fast navigation with one hand. Printed documents require good contrast and should be optimised for minimal ink usage, while Facebook page tabs need to integrate nicely with the Facebook ecosystem and interface to provide a seamless experience.
All these different use cases require different products. With 1stbase you cover them all - now and in the future!
The 1stbase products are responsible for making your content look good, no matter what it is, how it is viewed or how it gets interacted with. Your 1stbase products are expertly designed by professionals to adhere to what a user of a particular platform or media channel would expect in terms of looks, navigation and functionality.
Importantly, 1stbase products (for example your website) are not rigid templates where you need to shoe-horn your content into (as is the case with, for example, Wordpress or Drupal templates). 1stbase viewers are much more intelligent and are 'content-driven', meaning that they adapt the look and feel to your content and not the other way around.
Your content is presented in the most effective way for the specific media channel or platform that the reader is viewing your content on. For example, if the reader is viewing your content as a mobile app, all content is available off-line (in case the reader loses coverage) and relevant links are opened in the relevant on-board apps (for example google Maps), while navigation is optimised for one-handed use.
Another example; if you reader is reading your content as a printed PDF, all important links will have been automatically converted into QR Codes, so that following a link is as simple as scanning in the QR Code.
Every media channel or platform will have its unique uses and ways of showing content. The 1stbase viewers make sure your content is always ready for consumption, no matter the media channel or platform your audience chooses to use.
The latter is also why 1stbase is future-proof; when a new medium or platform comes along, all it takes is for us at 1stbase to create a new 1stbase product for your content on the new medium and platform and away you go! Thanks to 1stbase' flexible viewers, putting your content into 1stbase is a smart, long term investment.
Websites are still the first port of call for anyone looking for your brand or business.
With over 50% of incoming traffic now originating from mobile devices, it's more important than ever to present those users with an experience that is suitable (and even capitalises on the unique functionality) for those devices.
Responsive design is a fancy term for websites that 'respond' to the cues that different devices give to websites when they request a page. Thanks to a website being 'responsive' to the needs of those devices, the websites can provide a tailored experience to the specific screen size of the device requesting the web page.
The result is a much better user experience for all your users, allowing better placement of the content that matters (e.g. your call-to-action), as well as avoiding the navigation/zooming/pinching frustrations that 'unresponsive' sites foist upon their users.
Your 1stbase website is fully responsive and adheres to the latest standards to make browsing your content as painless as possible, no matter which device your users use to access it.
In recent years, apps have seen an enormous amount of interest from the public and businesses alike.
Often touted as 'the next big thing', mobile apps allow for new ways to engage with your content.
Apps are optimised for use on-the-go. As such they need to be usable with one hand, be able to show information without too much scrolling, and need to integrate nicely with other apps available on the device (for example the mail client, Google maps and any apps that allow for content sharing apps). Your 1stbase app adheres to all of these requirements.
Additionally, all content in your 1stbase app is available off-line for the user, in the event the mobile device loses network access or cell coverage.
To install your 1stbase app, your users do not have to go through any of the app stores to get your app, nor do you need to create a developer account to submit your app to any app store.
All your 1stbase content is available as multiple PDFs.
At any time, users can convert any section of your content (or the full content) into self-contained PDF documents.
Large sections will be given a table of contents, as well as a cover page.
Important links are automatically converted into QR codes, saving people who wish to follow those links time and hassle.
All your 1stbase content is available as a Flipbook.
At any time, users can convert any section of your content (or the full content) into self-contained Flipbook.
The 1stbase Facebook page tabs allow you to display any section of your content as up to 4 Facebook distinct pages on your brand's Facebook page.
Facebook page tabs are a great way to let your audience engage with your 1stbase content without them ever having to leave Facebook.
1stbase offers your audience a way to consume your content that is friendly to those with a visual impairment.
Automatic text-to-speech audio rendering, combined with large lettering and the removal of distracting non-essential visual embellishments, provides people with a visual impairment (or those that need to keep their eyes focused elsewhere) a means to peruse your content.
QR codes provide a convenient way for your audience to find content on your website, without having to type long URLs.
Your QRCodes are available in the Scalable Vector Graphic (SVG) format, ready for use by you or your graphic designer in point-of-sale displays, signage or other printed materials.
Your unique design and content on a microcomputer from 1982, just because you can!
We created it to drive the point home that 1stbase effortlessly doubles as an on-line C64 app builder, just like 1stbase is simultaneously a website builder, Android/iOS app creator, Facebook app creator, PDF document creator and more.
And the best thing? There is nothing new to learn, nothing new to think about while 1stbase does all this for you; just focus on your content and let 1stbase do the rest!
A professional looking email template that uses your unique design and content is available for you to send branded email.
As with everything in 1stbase, even your email template is enhanced with lead generating functionality; your call-to-action and social media are just a click away for anyone reading your message.
A unique feature of your 1stbase email template is that, aside from the message content, it displays your news headlines in the email. This means that, no matter how old or recent the email is, whenever it is viewed, the news will always be up to date, potentially giving your readers a reason to visit your website if they'd like to know more.
Full 24/7 access to your own artificially intelligent designer (our Automated Design Assistant "ADA") means your 1stbase presence's designs are never out of date and always look consistent with your brand and preferences.
"Can you make it look a bit more modern?", "It's too colourful", "I don't like the red", "Please move the navigation down"; they are all valid ways of expressing aspects of your design brief and helping ADA think in the right direction.
If you are more of a control freak, you can also micro-manage ADA by going through each of her design suggestions and adding or removing them to suit your needs.
Alternatively, you can stimulate ADA's neural net directly by directly sending impulses into the different creative areas of her brain, to quickly nudge her in the right direction.
Rather than browsing yet another collection of templates and grappling with yet another DIY drag & drop interface for yet another platform, service or medium, 1stbase and ADA free you up to let you do what you are good at; running your business, blog, band or Kittens Appreciation Society.
