Where Have I Been? Busy Migrating Business Catalyst Sites!

Keeping Up with IAMTEEJAY

Well, it has been a long time, since I posted, and I just can't stare at January's post anymore. After the announcement of Business Catalyst End of Life, I was faced with a huge challenge of figuring out what to do next with my 70+ clients and their sites.

Yes, Business Catalyst WAS an amazing platform at one-time, offering a wide-array of tools that a website owner could utilize and effectively promote their website, products and services online. Sadly, Adobe started to ignore the platform a few years after they purchased it from an Australian developer. With neglect, the platform it started to loose the edge it had over many CMS services in its heyday. Now with its inevitable end-of-life, it is starting to fail. 

After the announcement, many CMS service providers started upping their game in attempt to lure new customers, including those 77,000+ leaving Business Catalyst.

The aforementioned Australian developers launched Platform OS to expand on the original Business Catalyst model and create something similar, but new. My first impression was to migrate everyone there, but I felt it too early to place my trust in them. They are expanding at a rapid-rate and I am not completely sure when and where they will have a mature, time-tested platform ready for my customers. The last thing I wanted was another about face if something were to happen to them. 

So, I look toward the traditional and time-tested platforms like WordPress, SquareSpace, Wix, Shopify platform, and the newer, but established Duda. While many of my Speaker clients were requesting WordPress as an option for their site, Wix and Duda stood out as impressive solutions for my other individual and smaller business customers. 

At this moment, I am currently active with:

At first, I thought I was going to have to quit my business, but now I am just becoming an expert at a few more things in life, and offering my customers more options in the long run. 

Did I mention that I am redesigning my own site from scratch, too? It is rather fun and I can't wait to show it off. Here is a preview!
