Website builder from Vistaprint to help with small businesses’ online presence

A new website builder that allows users to create an online presence to rival big-budget competitors has been launched by Vistaprint.

The website builder allows users to choose from a range of templates that match to their industry and goals, each customised with their business name and logo before they even enter the builder.

Users can then easily add, remove and reposition professional content blocks like menus, calendars and galleries. Elements such as fonts, headers, footers and colours can be changed universally with a single click. All templates are completely responsive, providing users an instant mobile site without any additional work.

According to research by Vistaprint Digital, nearly 70 per cent of businesses with fewer than ten employees market both online and in print, and this solution from the company’s digital division is designed specifically to meet their evolving digital marketing needs.

Matthew Keddie, founder of Leeds-based athletics children’s club 3 Lions Athletics says, ‘The new website builder was simple and stress-free, allowing me to quickly develop a great-looking website. I have very little experience of digital tools but the website builder was highly intuitive and easy to use. Now the site is live, it’s easy to update and refine.’

Trynka Shineman, president of Vistaprint adds, ‘We work with millions of micro business owners around the world, which gives us unmatched insight into their needs, and we tailor our offerings accordingly. Our passion is to help micro business owners meet their goals and grow their business. This new solution is a reflection of that commitment.’

The company recently found that a third of consumers discover small businesses for the first time online, but 45 per cent are unlikely to shop at one with a poorly-designed website.

D. Scott Bowen, vice president and general manager of Vistaprint Digital says, ‘To stand out in a crowded market, the business owners we serve need a professional online presence today. They need to be able to easily create a professional, consistent brand across print and digital, and only Vistaprint can help them achieve that.’
