Farewell, Adobe Business Catalyst – What’s Next?

Meredith Schraeder – Wednesday, January 30, 2019

At this time two years ago, we encouraged B2B companies to use Adobe Business Catalyst – our website content management system (WCMS) of choice.

Sadly and unexpectedly, Business Catalyst announced that they will end-of-life the platform by March 26, 2020. Adobe originally wanted to pull the plug in 2018, but pushed the date back as torches were lit and pitchforks were being sharpened. This leaves more than 700,000 websites currently hosted on Adobe with the daunting task of migrating to another platform.

Choosing a WCMS for your B2B website can be a struggle. There are so many – trendy platforms entice you with promises of do-it-yourself website designs and minimal prices. Others wow you with functionality until you realize that the monthly subscription is more than your entire marketing budget.

So, how do you choose the right WCMS without sacrificing something key?

Adobe Business Catalyst: Far Better than WordPress for B2B Small Business

Sean Parnell – Thursday, January 12, 2017


As an Adobe Business Catalyst partner for over five years, I'm often asked why this web content management software (WCMS) is so effective for business-to-business (B2B) marketing for small and mid-sized (SMB) businesses. Having worked with WordPress for numerous years, as well as Joomla, Drupal, Modx, Umbraco, Miva, Adobe Muse, American Eagle, Ruby on Rails, Tridion, HubSpot, and good ol' straight HTML, here's why Adobe Business Catalyst continues to make so much sense for our clients and for us (this is an Adobe Business Catalyst website).

For small and mid-sized business, WordPress has become the defacto web content management software (WCMS) of choice. However, is it the best?

We've developed and edited hundreds of websites in both WordPress and Adobe Business Catalyst, and we've found the latter to be a much better option for SMBs. This is why we became an Adobe Business Catalyst partner four years ago.

Website Development vs. Web Design

Sean Parnell – Tuesday, January 01, 2013


Website Development Portfolio from InnovaxisWeb designers are a dime-a-dozen. A commodity. It seems everyone and their brother can create a new website these days. So what differentiates one from another? It's the difference between website development and web design. One generates leads. One will leave you thinking that marketing doesn't work.

Far too many web designers place style over substance, masking a lack of quality content with a few lines of code. Or they make you to write everything yourself—and you've got a business to run. They also claim to offer SEO services but often lack an understanding of current best practices, or utilize black hat SEO practices that can get you blacklisted by Google and Bing. To truly generate high Google rankings and to turn visitors into customers, your website needs to engage users visually, deliver compelling content and deliver effective SEO.

WordPress Paid Membership Forum

Sean Parnell – Monday, December 05, 2011


Wordpress LogoNeed to show topics but hide threads and posts for a paid WordPress forum? We just figured out how to do so for a client after a surprisingly difficult search.

Forum plug-in: Simple: Press (free)

Membership Management plug-in: S2Member Pro ($69)

All you need to do is edit “Read-Only Access” so that the “Can view forum and topic lists only” box is checked in Simple:Press, in line with how you set up S2Member Pro. You can see the result here: www.wraponpkg.com
