WeVolt began with the aspirations of Roger Mincheff, who had a dream of creating an online comic book store. While researching the endeavor, Mincheff discovered the comic book site PanelFlow.com, a site run by Matt Jacobs. Impressed with the site Mincheff contacted Jacobs and began to collaborate on another project. Together, the pair created what is today known as WeVolt.
WeVolt is unique because it focuses on the artistic side of content sharing. Rather than providing a mundane collection of tools for business people, WeVolt is geared towards the creative, if not eccentric, creator. Users can enjoy the fun atmosphere offered through cartoon images and colorful elements while managing their online presence and getting their content out there. Rarely do business and creativity shake hands in a way that can appeal to the typical comic book fan as well as WeVolt does.
Appearance is very important on WeVolt, and the site really shows that. A new visitor is greeted with a bold blue color scheme, sleek buttons and an intense high voltage logo. The founders have recreated themselves in comic form, to help guide users to the pages they need to see within the site. Although it is obviously a fun, creative site, it is also well organized. New users can see highlighted content as well as basic navigation tools needed to get around. Even the advertisements are appropriate for the type of user WeVolt attracts. A right hand sidebar makes updates, recent site news, and events quick to find as well.
Although the registration links are not immediately apparent, they are not hard to find. A new user can either click the “join the WeVolt” banner at the bottom of the page, or click the round menu button to access the registration link at the top. New users are asked to enter a username, real name, email address, password, gender and date of birth as well as over 18 confirmation. After submitting the details, an email confirmation is required and arrives within seconds. Users can then return to the site and begin accessing WeVolt features.
WeVolt offers a free membership as well as a premium paid membership. Users who choose the free membership will see advertisements on the site. The free membership can view images of up to 750 pixels. A Pro WeVolt account can view up to 1,000 pixel images, post to an exclusive forum, and receive an experience bonus on the leveling program. Other Pro features include merchandising, increased customizability, more purchase features, e-commerce options, galleries, commentary options, production process peels, marketing tools, experience point marketing packages, access to the WeVolt classifieds, professional comic book fonts, a wider template selection and up to five tag clouds.
Creative, unique individuals looking for a new way to spread the word about what they do can really enjoy WeVolt features. The site is dedicated to a more unusual type of professional. Users can create and customize their profiles to share with others and expand their audience. The features also offer business-minded tools, such as the ability to monetize a site and merchandising for artists.
