Thanks for your comments. I've taken a look at the Citymax website and it looks pretty good overall, although I think the majority of their features are unnecessary for most people who just want a simple web site which is what our service is aimed at.
And even though they say they have 1200 templates I'm sure there isn't all that many to choose from for each individual business catgeory.
Anyway, we certainly will be adding more features soon that will enhance the service even more. There's a few details about these in the Advantage Userguide E-book.
Also when Holistic Local starts to take off with the public next year there will definitely be a greater advantage to using our website service than an external service like Citymax.
We also plan to do some pretty cool stuff that should hopefully really help our Advantage members get much higher rankings in major search engines like Google. Something we feel is extremely important, because no matter how popular Holistic Local becomes, there will still always be millions of people that will still use Google and other major search engines.
Ultimately, there will always be plenty of other websites like Citymax that offer similar services that may also provide more features at cheaper prices. If people want to use Citymax that's cool with us. I don't really see them as competitors because overall we're doing something quite different! This will become much more apparant next year when we launch our community membership. Stay tuned!
