How does the web app look and feel to use?

Vator TV offers a professional design for visitors. Although the site appears well organized, there is a lot going on. A new visitor may feel slightly overwhelmed by the images, text and other content. This is not made any better by the animated banners and other advertisements that appear on the site. These seem to be on just about every area of the site. They are not completely intrusive, but seem a little excessive.

How does the registration process work?

A new user can create a Vator TV account by clicking the white link that reads “Create a profile for your startup” in the upper right hand corner of the homepage (just under a banner ad). The registration process includes three steps. Step one asks for a first and last name, email address, password, and user type. User type options include business owner, employee, freelancer, student, investor, looking for work or other. The user must also agree to the terms of use and privacy policy. A Law Pivot inquiry check box is available but optional. Users can also sign in through Twitter, Google, LinkedIn or Facebook. Step two invites the user to connect with other people through their Gmail, Yahoo! Mail, Hotmail or AOL contacts. The last step requires the user to check their email for an activation code to complete registration.

What does it cost to use the application?

Anyone can create a Vator TV account for free. There are no subscription fees or other payments required to access resources on Vator. This works well considering that the user community supplies some of the content. It also helps justify the use of many advertisements throughout the site. The free price tag is ideal for new entrepreneurs who may have little money to work with while starting their new business endeavor.
