Start Building Your Beautiful Website
At IM Creator, you start by choosing a template or building a website from scratch. You can begin building without registering first but will have to eventually register in order to save your website and allow others to view it once it’s complete.
There are many templates to choose from, to cater to the type of e-commerce you are looking to run on your site. Template design categories range across a variety of jobs and careers: photographer, designer, architect, wedding, artists, musician, model/actor, hotel, restaurant, consultant, real estate & law.
Once you’ve found a template you like, you can simply substitute contents in the template with your own images and text. Using the website builder is as simple as adding elements onto the workspace.
Clicking on added elements allows you to place them to fit your layout by resizing and dragging them around. Other than dragging elements with a mouse, you can also use the directional keys on your keyboard for more accurate movements.
You can use elements like pictures, text, videos, photo galleries, slideshows, contact info, HTML codes, menus and sub-menus to customize the layout and design of your website.
Publishing Your Completed Website
After you’ve finished designing and creating your website, click on the Publish button at the top right corner then give your site a name. Once you’ve clicked OK, you’ll be asked to register if you haven’t already. They will then provide you with a link you can share to let people see your beautiful creation. The link it provides would look something like www.i-m.co/[username]/[sitename]/.
IM Creator is a free service, and so there will be an ‘advertisement footer’ at the bottom of your created website. For a yearly subscription with a monthly fee of $7.95, you can use the design on your own domain and remove all these advertisements.
