Web Publishing with FirstMagic
Content Management should be easy, because when it isn't, your site won't stay current in the long run – content decays, just like everything else in the world. And a postcard from the past is useless, no matter what industry you are in.
DIY or the Full Service Plan? Your challenges are gone, either way
A Photo Album or Video Channel? All it takes is one click. Publish Portfolios, Streaming Media, Public Forums, Booking Calendars, and Digital Signs. Customize your Response Forms simply by point-and-click.
Create an eye-catching WebStore, or roll out a hundred different blogs for a hundred different people in less than an hour. Publish your own Web App in minutes. FirstMagic has built-in modules for everything, instantly ready for use.
No previous experience needed. FirstMagic is intuitive and familiar - if you know Office, you know this, too.
Get a vibrant and engaging site
FirstMagic websites are infinitely skinnable. Use the built in Theme Designer or select a ready-made Theme from the library, bring your own Web Developer on board to develop something special, or hire us - there are no limits to what you can do. FirstMagic websites can be designed freely.
Implement your organization's branding and design guidelines everywhere, or design different spaces in different ways - you can even make stand-alone sub-websites inside your site, each with its own, unique look and feel, its own navigation, and custom Design Theme.
Found the perfect Theme on templatemonster.com but it's built for a different platform? We'll port it over for you, exact to the last pixel. FirstMagic can use WordPress Themes, Drupal Themes, Joomla Themes... Or any custom built Design.
Powerful ways to share and connect
Connect your Social Media and drop Facebook or Twitter content onto any page - or push content in the other direction, to other CMSes and custom mobile Apps. Maintain a Blog in FirstMagic and automatically republish your posts on WordPress, or embed Google Drives, Docs, or Maps, in any FirstMagic page. Use Word documents as web pages. Mix Flickr and FirstMagic galleries on the same page, and make YouTube Channels inside them, too.

Demos and Examples
FirstMagic websites can publish blogs, news feeds, e-books, web apps, image galleries, webshops, video channels, podcasts, response forms, social channels, even public user forums, calendars, and Digital Signs - whatever you need is just a few clicks away. Here´s a few demos.
FirstMagic integrates with both PayPal and FoxyCart, and has several easy ways to set up payments processing and shopping carts. Webstores, stand-alone product pages and pop-up offers can be created on the fly. Demo: http://shop.dont-panic.ca
Today is a special
FirstMagic layout with its own Web App for IOS and Android. It will
publish anything you want as cards - blog posts, Facebook posts,
YouTube movies, Word and PDF documents, Google Docs, Maps... The content
appears in a live stream, and each card can be timed to appear and
disappear at the dates and times you specify. Look at our demo: http://today.dont-panic.ca
Small Business Website Example
Here´s a demo of a generic Small Business site: http://example.dont-panic.ca. This is one of the pre-installed Website Models. You could use the Theme Designer to style it, and simply drop in your own content. To get a feel for how easy it is, visit the TryOut site below and publish something...
Digital Magazine Example
Digital versions of paper publications rarely transfer well: the common formats are not very discoverable in Google. FirstMagic offers a module that will retain the editorial format perfectly, while making every page SEO friendly - including adverts. You can even put some (or all) content behind a PayWall and offer subscriptions. http://magazine.dont-panic.ca is our example site.
FirstMagic TryOut site
Visit http://demo.firstmagic.net and try anything you like. This demo is basically the same as the Small Business Site above - but you can sign in and edit anything you like. It also has a section demonstrating a range of Widgets and Layouts that adds all kinds of functionality to your pages.
