Why TONIC

FAQ

hOW IT WORKS

There's a sickness in the creative world. It’s insidious, easily diagnosed, and often referred to in hushed conversations between chambray-clad tastemakers as “Boring Template Website Syndrome.” 

That’s right. Talented creatives everywhere, saddled with websites that fail to convey their brand’s personality and potential. It’s BTWS. It may not be catchy, but the yawns are. 

Fortunately, at TONIC SITE SHOP, we’re here to help, and we've found the cure: entirely unique, completely customizable websites handcrafted for the modern, stylish creative. 

We’ve redefined the website template – and not only what it can be, but how it can look, what it can do, and what it can do for your business.

The brainchild of longtime custom web designers Jeffrey Shipley and Jennifer Olmstead, TONIC's affordable, cocktail-inspired site collections provide an alternative to the custom design process without sacrificing a drop of top-shelf style. TONIC is the answer for any brand that requires a complete web experience tailored specifically to their audience. Emphasis on the bang, not the buck. 

With drag-and-drop customizability, TONIC makes it easy for users to change colors, add images, logos, and other brand paraphernalia, restructure the layout, or completely delete it all and start over. Best of all, changes preview and update instantly, meaning the perma-hold with that vaguely-snotty tech guy who only speaks Linux? just became unnecessary. You're welcome.

All of our site designs are hosted on the SHOWIT platform and fueled by powerful HTML5 engine, creating a nearly infinite range of responsive design and functionality. Showit is a drag-and-drop website builder that allows you to showcase your unique brand without any frustrating back-end coding. It gives you total freedom to create and to maintain your web presence. Try it free for 30 days by clicking HERE

Typically, templates only let you change the color, font or images - and even for simple changes, you often need to know CSS or HTML. With drag-and-drop customizability, Tonic designs make it INCREDIBLY easy for you to change colors, add images, logos and other brand paraphernalia, restructure the layout, or completely delete it all and start over. You can literally pick elements up and move them. Best of all, changes preview and update instantly, meaning the perma-hold with that vaguely-snotty tech guy who only speaks Linux? Just became unnecessary.

Showit has various subscription levels available based on your needs starting as low as $19/mo (billed yearly). We recommend the middle tier with a blog at $24/mo (billed yearly) as it allows for you to make use of our all-in-one Wordpress blog design integration. The Showit subscriptions includes full use of the software, access to video tutorials, live tech support, and an all-access pass to the Facebook Showiteer community. All TONIC sites are built for the Showit platform and require an active account to go live. 

Lucky for you, there is a whole host of video tutorials available HERE, and an extensive wiki HERE. Beyond that, we want you to know that you're not just getting a download - you're getting two designers who want your brand to look its best! Please feel free to contact us with any issues. We'll make sure you get the help you need.

Yes, yes it does. Each TONIC design comes with a built-in blog theme for Wordpress. So that means you get to use the most powerful blogging platform on the planet, but customize your blog design in SHOWIT without one line of code? WIN. WIN. 

A Showiteer is Showit’s endearing name for its users. But it’s more than that. The Showiteers have become a community of people who love to help others. (And they tend to love on you while they're at it.) Showiteers truly are a fantastic bunch of people, and when you use a Tonic site (and subscribe to Showit), you get to join in the fun in their Facebook group.

Yes! Because TONIC sites are fully responsive, they scale to fit any screen, and look the same - by which we mean "awesome" - on every device. And better yet, you can even customize your mobile site to include varied content than your desktop version. So basically, it doesn’t just “respond” to a mobile device, but you can create a unique mobile experience strategically and thoughtfully, opting to sync certain content and leave some out. 

Tonic itself doesn't currently offer customization services, but of course we're here to help you along the way! We built our sites with creatives and small businesses in mind, hoping to empower them with beautiful design, an easy to use, drag-and-drop interface, and all the style they needed to build, create and control their own web presence.

The Showit Support Team is unreal. They are ready to help at a moment's notice. You can live chat with them during normal business hours and send in support tickets 24/7. They are prompt, genius, and downright awesome people. You can get help right inside the Showit app.

Yep! You know that whole HTML5 thing we mentioned earlier?! Well that results in all the goodies on your site being indexed by Google. You can even add in keywords, image descriptions and links to better optimize your site for search engines.

Included in your purchase is : A fully customizable, HMTL5 website design for the amazing, all-new drag-and-drop platform, SHOWIT (subscription purchased separately). Just download, upload content, edit, and go live! A top-shelf, pre-installed matching blog design for Wordpress. ($250 value). A responsive and equally beautiful custom mobile site design, which you can view, edit, perfect and customize side by side with your primary site (a feature totally unique to TONIC x SHOWIT5). All graphics, layouts, and web fonts as shown in site demo. Everything you need to go live! 

TONIC itself does not offer custom logo design, site design or template customization in-house. But the good news is that we have a handful of awesome designer friends who do, and we'd be happy to put you in touch should you like to pair your new site with a newly minted visual identity, or you'd like some help customizing your new virtual digs. So just get in touch, and we'll get you situated with the appropriate site mixologist. 

“To think that something like this exists purely from the heart of helping small businesses fly and have access to this level of branding that was once reserved for only the most established and top of the top of the market…I just think this is going to change everything.”
