6 Reasons Why Uskinned.net is One of Our Favourite Umbraco Websites

6 Reasons Why Uskinned.net is One of Our Favourite Umbraco Websites

Here at UmbraJobs, we love all things Umbraco. That is why we are giving a shout out to Uskinned, a website that creates responsive Umbraco themes for any project. Here are the six reasons why we love their site.

1. They Let You Take the Tour

Not many websites comprehensively show you what they can do as well as Uskinned. Visitors to Uskinned presents a tour immediately upon arrival at the home page. Starting the tour, users will be greeted by a range of comprehensive videos covering advanced page layouts and standard page layouts, as well as how to navigate an Umbraco site and how to integrate a blog.

2. They Give You a Great Demo

You don’t have to go to another website to check out a demo. Instead, you have a complete demo built into Uskinned’s website. Opening the demo not only allows you to take the tour of an Umbraco website and see and feel every detail and component of it, but also to choose your source theme, and see what your Umbraco site looks like on a mobile device, desktop, tablet, or laptop.

3. They Offer Multi-Faceted Support

Instead of just giving you an email address where you can contact them, Uskinned goes a step further and offers support through helpful guides. By clicking on the Umbraco guides tab, you can access an assortment of Umbraco help information, including: Umbraco TV, Umbraco forum, Quick Tips, and plugin downloads. Clicking on the FAQs section, you can have all of your questions answered in a comprehensive fashion? Furthermore, the blog provides a number of quick tips on themes, social media, and blog enhancement.

4. Pricing Says It All

Instead of hiding their prices and/or letting people contact them to find out, Uskinned puts them up front: it’s the equivalent of $157 AUD per theme and $527 AUD per year (converted from GBP as appears on the website) for a Uskinned membership. Also, included in these prices is a full rundown of what is included in the price (i.e. support, website licensing, and Photoshop perks.)

5. They Let You Look For More

On top of being upfront with their pricing, Uskinned intuitively recognises that clients expect something more from Umbraco professionals: they expect help with hosting, support, design and theme setup, upgrades and maintenance. Foreseeing this, Uskinned lets users request a quote for all of these options by funnelling them into a contact form.

6. They Include Success Stories

Plenty of websites expect their users and clients to trust them straight off the bat. Uskinned does not. They not only feature testimonials straight from the time a user embarks on their website’s tour, but also feature a whole tab and section dedicated to their success stories. Each success story features a problem, a solution, and an outcome. For those keen to share their success stories with Uskinned, this is easily achieved with their user-friendly and easy-to-use questionnaire.

About the author

David Armitage

Umbraco Community Builder | .Net MVC Developer | Umbraco Certified Master | Recruitment Professional

Hey Peeps,

I'm an entrepreneur and web developer with a passion for coding. I absolutely love working with Umbraco CMS and appreciate the Umbraco community even more.

I've got 10 years+ .Net experience and 7 years+ experience working in the recruitment industry, both coding and marketing job websites. I wanted to use my skills to help give something back to this awesome community and so I decided to build UmbraJobs.com.

My vision & fundamentals

I want this website to be a place where Umbraco Professionals and Umbraco Partners can advertise their services but at the same time I want to filter out all the under-qualified freelancers & agencies that take up the biggest part of other job & freelancer websites. We've all worked hard to gain our Umbraco certifications, partnership status, and help build the Umbraco community to what it is today. I want to see everyone get rewarded for their efforts.

Follow me on social media

If you're an Umbraco professional, partner, employer, recruiter or a passionate Umbraco community builder then I'm more than happy to hear from you. Follow me on my social media channels and please reach out if you have any needs, want help or consultation with anything Umbraco related or just want a general chat.
