Last week was not a flashy one: we did not have any huge upgrades or releases – but the amount of work going on behind the scenes has me on the edge of my seat! We finished mock ups of what the vendor profiles will look like (including the differences between Vendor Basic and Vendor+) and they look amazing! Jon is working diligently in getting the code shored up so that when we do launch this feature it will function seamlessly. We are dedicated to avoiding as many bugs, and stress as possible.
The vendor profiles are definitely something exciting. Not only will they contain vendor descriptions, contact, and social media information, they will include a section dedicated to featuring the upcoming shows of that vendor. Vendors will be able to find the events they are attending on the calendar and add them to their page, and they will appear in chronological order. This feature is sticking with our idea of making ShowWiz a one stop place for shows. Eventually, these vendors will also show up on the event page as well – but that’s going to be part of the event page overhaul that’s planned for a little further down the line. (That mock up is gorgeous as well!)
Vendors+ will be able to customize their vendor profiles with three product images as well as a full width banner image across the top of their profile. Those using Vendors Basic will be able to upload their logo and the remainder of the social media links and contact. This is one of our ways of recognizing that those using Vendors+ are making this project’s growth possible. If you’d like more information or to sign up/upgrade your account click here.
Otherwise, we continued to grow on social media and celebrated 100 likes! (That number has now grown to over 133!) It’s clear that ShowWiz is fulfilling a need that has existed for a long time. Plus, we launched #memeMonday – Kaitlynne-Rae is a little excited about that one.
Hope everyone is having a blast at the craft and vendor shows they’re attending! And that you can find even more with ease!
