Carnal launches off-the-shelf web stores
Posted: December 12, 2012
Carnal Creative, the adult web agency behind the ongoing redevelopment of Erotica UK, is expanding its services to include a range of off-the-shelf adult web stores in addition to its bespoke services. The firm formerly specialised in providing individually tailored adult website design, adult-friendly hosting and digital marketing solutions to suit the unique requirements of each project, but it says it discovered a high demand for a product to suit the budget constraints of the small and medium sized business.
“We were very pleased with the level of interest we received at the ETO Show where we exhibited for the first time in June,” said Adam Turnbull, sales manager for Carnal Creative. “Feedback was very positive but what we also took away from the show was that many visitors were seeking a simple and affordable, yet solid, solution. We have put together these off-the-shelf packages as a means by which we can answer the demand for a cheaper solution for smaller and start-up businesses in the adult industry, without sacrificing the core standards we offer as a reputable web design company.”
Prices for the new packages start at £2,500 for a basic ecommerce set-up, which is suitable for start-up businesses and single outlet adult shops looking to have an online presence. This includes five email accounts and 500 managed products through a Paypal or Google payment gateway. Upgrading to a premium package allows purchasing in multiple currencies with the addition of bank account integration, unlimited managed products, broader customisation options and an extra 20 email addresses. Facebook and eBay stores are also available on the premium and bespoke options.
Turnbull added: “We are known for our versatility and these new fixed priced options offer a fantastic feature-rich solution that can be scaled up to suit the growing needs of a brand – from industry newcomer right through to ETO’s best.”
Carnal Creative was launched in May this year as an adult specialist branch of an existing web design company which had seen demand for reliable hosting and support from the adult sector. The firm says that hosting in particular is a widespread issue, with the majority of standard providers disallowing the content type or providing a substandard service for what are deemed less valued clients.
Carnal Creative claims to provide a simple and expandable solution for adult-friendly web hosting, design and related services which will be suitable for adult industry newcomers as well as established brands. Additional services offered, in addition to web design, include print advertising, marketing, branding, social media management, event hosting and content management.
Carnal’s off-the-shelf adult webstore packages will be optimised for use on mobile phones and tablets and be hosted on Carnal Creative’s personally monitored secure servers. Customers will have access to direct support from the in-house technical manager via email or telephone.
