When someone signs up for my rebrand I create their account and then add about 30 templates for them to play with on their first login. (I believe this is a big factor in converting a sign-up into an actual user.)
It's a pain having to upload each template manually one at a time and takes me about 15 min per account through my streamlined/practiced method.
Has anyone found a method to automate or semi-automate new account creation?
I'm at the point where I'm considering some kind of Automator screen action record/playback function.
Hi Jason, great to see you here! Have you taken a look at Artesano? One of our resellers mentioned them the other day and it looks like they're actively developing their apps for resellers. We haven't had a chance to test them out lately, so we'd love your feedback if you give them a shot.
Thanks for your recent email - I'll respond to that in a sec, too :)
I've also done something similar for people using the API.
The client has created a 'template' client, then use my app to create a new account, it copies the account lists, segments etc and uploads all the templates from a central repository :)
@ros After watching the demo videos.... Yes yes yes! Please build that into CM!!
I would love to have that tool, but $99? (sigh) I haven't even cleared $40 profit yet from my 1 year old rebrand. :-/
At this time it'd be more economically viable to pay someone $5-10 to do the account creation for me. At least until more money starts coming IN.
Guess I'm back to looking at Automator for now.
I'm in the same situation as Jasonh1234... and would love to see this implemented into CM directly! That'd be a great way to promote your resellers!
Many thanks for your feedback, Jason and Nicko. As Jon mentioned above, it's already possible via the API, however you never know... We have a template editor update in the works at present, so as well as a new look and feel, there's a chance that we'll be throwing some reseller-friendly goodies in as well.
Thanks again, we really appreciate hearing from you folks in regards to how we can make reselling easier for you.
