We hope you’ll take a few minutes to check out Website Tournament, our new online solution that brings together talented website designers and potential customers in an open, transparent market designed to deliver optimal results to both.

A business or other customer seeking design services posts a description of the site to be designed, its purpose, and a target prize amount. Designers who have registered on the site – free of charge – create and submit mock-ups. The customer chooses the winning design and pays the designer. Our revenue comes from a percentage of the customer’s prize award.

As an added benefit for both F3 and Website Tournament customers, we can follow-up the design service by hosting and managing the websites for a low monthly fee of just $149.99, including a number of monthly updates. It’s a value-added service comparable to those we’ve introduced for FargoTube and Interaction Community Systems since late last year. Another value add is that customers can opt to load completed website designs onto F3’s proprietary Ascend website content management system for a low monthly fee of $39.95.

Our CEO Frank Connor developed Website Tournament designed and developed Website Tournament after seeing how difficult it is for a small business to purchase high-quality custom website design services at affordable prices.

Several dozen page designers from at least 12 countries have already registered on Website Tournament. The platform ranks designers according to customer satisfaction, the number and type of trophies a designer has earned and other measures of feedback.

Designs not chosen remain the property of the respective designers. We can work with designers to find alternative paths to monetize those designs, for example by promoting select designs as templates in a new website theme store.
