Support Kofive, Save Yourself Some Work

You can support the Kofive Technology initiative, save yourself some major work, and provide your clients with a totally professional product they can hold in their hands by purchasing a pre-configured Kofive Key and a personalized User Guide for each of your clients.

 

See the details on the Kofive Key and User Guide below.

 

Your Personalized Kofive Key

When you purchase a personalized Kofive Key, you get a 2 or 4GB USB flash drive, emblazoned with the Kofive Logo and loaded with all the Kofive client applications. These applications include

  • An individualized menuing system. This is an EXE file that is personalized with the name of the client's website and quick-launch buttons for all the other applications on the key.
  • A WYSIWYG HTML Editor. This is the latest version of KompoZerPortable, preconfigured such that all unneeded and distracting buttons and window panes are removed. You will need to preconfigure the FTP client in this editor (site manager) to ensure it properly connects with the client's website before giving this key to your client.
  • An Image Editor. This is the latest version of IrfanViewPortable, ready to run directly from the Kofive Menu.
  • An FTP Client. This is the latest version of FileZillaPortable, preconfigured such that all unneeded and distracting buttons and window panes are removed. You will need to preconfigure and test the site manager to ensure it properly connects with the client's website before giving this key to your client.
  • A Single-Site Browser. This is the latest version of OperaPortable, preconfigures such that all controls are removed from the visible window. The "View Your Site" button on the Kofive Menu opens this browser, sending it the client's website as a parameter.

When ordering a Kofive Key, be sure to send us all required information, or we will be unable to personalize your key.

 

We will also provide you with a setup guide to follow as you finish personalizing the Kofive Key for your client.

 

The price of a Kofive key is $50. Yes, we know this is high, but (a) it will save you a ton of work; (b) it will be preconfigured and personalized for your client's website - all you need to do is set up their FTP access in two programs, then hand them the key; (c) you can get a discount when you order it with the User Guide; (d) It's not worth it to me to go to the work of producing an individualized, personalized Kofive Key for less than this; and (e) You should pass on this cost to your client. We suggest you add a minimum of $300 to the price of your website for building it with Kofive technology. It's well worth that price.

The Kofive User Guide

You have probably already found, time and again, that computer and website clients absolutely love to have something they can hold in their hand. They also love to have a set of instructions for whatever tasks they have to do, regardless of how user-friendly you have developed it.

 

I could tell you stories about clients who insisted on paying 30% more for a project just so they could have a printed user manual, then never even opened it. But that's another story.

 

The Kofive Technology is just involved enough that clients are far more comfortable with it if you can leave them with a user gude that explains the things they need to do. Of course, Kofive is also simple enough that once the client does it a few times, they won't need the guide any more. But they are always more comfortable having the User Guide than not having it.

 

If you would rather not type one up on your own and go to the bother of having it printed and bound, we will provide you with a full color, professionally printed, and personalized Kofive User Guide, 3-hole punched and placed in a binder, with a cover sheet in the front insert window.

 

To provide you with complete personalization of your Kofive User Guide, we will need the information about your client's website, and we'll need you to send us any graphics (such as your banner graphic) to use in printing the cover and cover sheet.

 

Here are some examples of what our printed User Guides look like. The first example is the cover page for the Shiloh Baptist Church website's Kofive User Guide; the second example is from page 16 of the guide.

 

 

Personalization of the User Guide will consist of placing whatever graphic you supply on the cover page (left image), and changing the text on the cover page to indicate the client's website and your web design business.

 

There are pages within the User Guide you will need to fill in, such as their email addresses and passwords, if applicable, and their site access login and passwords, and a few other individual items you will only want to share with your client. We provide a setup guide for you to follow when you finalize the document for your client.
