The Yola target audience are small businesses and micro businesses, as well as individuals looking to create a professional image for themselves. Our target customer is a micro-business owner with 0-5 employees. Our diverse users include restaurant owners, artists, photographers, designers, churches, pet breeders, small shops, consultants and many others. We think the types of styles our users are looking for can be categorized as:
Business/professional look and feel
Theses are style build specifically for business type users. They like clean style with images that inspire confidence.
Artsy creative styles
For these styles we encourage you to get your creative juices going. We are looking for new, innovative designs that push the envelope in what the Yola framework can sustain.
Highly customizable styles
These designs will be made specifically for our users that like to customize a design. Users will probably change the banner and background so the the value of the design should be in framing, shadow elements, fixed bottom images and other design elements.
We are a website building program that uses templates to create quality websites. We are looking to dramatically increase the number of templates we offer our customers. We need templates that appeal to small businesses and organizations. We are looking to award 20-30 winners at $250 each for this project.
Please check our previous design contest for winning examples.
