Over the past few months, our team has spent a lot of time discussing ways that we can improve IgnitionDeck while simultaneously improving the crowdfunding environment that surrounds it. As part of these discussions, one of the things we wanted to do was get to the essence of IgnitionDeck’s offering, and on a greater scale, learn how we can better enable e-commerce before and after funding.
If you take the crowd out of it, the obvious answer is the deck. Broken into components, such as the percentage bar, total backers, or end date, the numbers mean very little. But when you combine them into a single display item in a prominent section of the page, suddenly, a crowdfunding campaign is born.
But what if you don’t want to show those items? What if you don’t want an end date, or levels, or a percentage bar? What if you want to customize your own campaign offering?
We’ve long held the stance that entrepreneurs should be able to raise money their way, and feel the campaign display should be no different.
This is why we’re incredibly excited to announce the IgnitionDeck Deck Builder, a feature that allows you to build and customize any number of decks in any format you want.
Want to remove levels? No problem.
Want to hide the goal? Sure thing.
Want to hide everything but the title and buy button? You got it.
We think that project creators should be able to build and sell anything they want, and the new Deck Builder allows you to do exactly that.
With a simple change in deck configuration, you can move straight into the pre-order phase once your campaign is complete. Better yet, you can drop the display entirely and sell anything you want with the click of a button.
The bottom line is that with the IgnitionDeck Deck Builder, IgnitionDeck is no longer restricted strictly to crowdfunding projects. It can be anything you want it to be, all without having to create a new site, get a new theme, or install a new plugin.
Combined with our new grid shortcode and completely refreshed deck designs, IgnitionDeck is once again breaking barriers in the crowdfunding world. We can’t wait to see what you do with it.
