How Manager x started their wordpress theme design journey
Who are you known as?
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
CL stone books are romance novels involving young women. So the website is focused on teenage/young adult girls. CL Stones books focus more toward the young geek girl, so cater towards that demographic.
What industry do you think your business is most related to?
What do you have in mind for the style and theme of the WordPress theme?
I’d like to keep the dark background with gray/white/light pink colors, or instead of pink if that’s too much, use a light blue. I don’t want to use a photo, so maybe use an image with a stack of books, and one of my books at the top, or a notebook and pens, or something else.
In a nutshell, we want you to take what is on our clstonebooks.com website and turn it into something beautiful.
we will need this wordpress theme to have the capability for "woocommerce" (so we can sell our ebooks) to be plugged in and ready to go right away as well.
Make it responsive, and obviously for smart readers. The newsletter box should be prominent but not in the way. Shop for books or signing up for the newsletter should be the focal points.
For the front design, I’d like the latest release,(just make it easy for us to interchange and link) and it link to the appropriate book page, an item from the shop, and the latest blog post. We then hope to add a video release, new products, and upcoming news to that blog feed as well.
What to avoid
We don't want it to look super "fake". Just cater to educated teenage girls and young women.
The website should have a ‘customer service’ form to fill out:
Customer service form should have a drop down menu of basically the following: ● I had a problem with a download. ● I had a problem with an order. ● I need to return an item for a refund. ● I have another question
It should also have an email request and an optional order number box so they can fill in their order number, first and last name, and then a note box to explain their problem. We want this information to be sent to our assistants email.
If you really want to go the extra mile, the first book in CL stones series is free on her website, take a couple minutes read to see what her books are about. (or at least skim over the book summaries)
I've attached a couple of book covers for you too, with "The Other side Of Envy" being the latest release.
