GoDaddy Canada launches new Website Builder - Helping Canadians build an audience and achieve results for their ideas online

Mobile-Optimized Website Builder with Smart Learning System Headlines New GoDaddy Service for Managing a Complete Online Presence

TORONTO, Jan. 25, 2017 /CNW/ - GoDaddy, the world's largest cloud platform dedicated to small, independent ventures, today announced the launch of its brand new Website Builder, an innovative service that combines a mobile-optimized website building service with an integrated set of marketing and e-commerce tools to help anyone create an audience for their idea or business. The new Website Builder ushers in a new era of smart website creation defined by a focus on results, including attracting visitors and driving sales.

The Website Builder enables people to design a professional website in under an hour, even on a mobile phone. With support for more than 1,500 ideas or industries, from tradespeople to hairstylists to hockey coaches, users simply type in their name and industry or idea, and GoDaddy's Website Builder smart learning system produces a near-complete website, pre-filled with relevant sections and professional images. Website Builder's intuitive user interface helps anyone, including technology and design novices, easily customize and update their sites on the go. All sites created on GoDaddy's Website Builder are built fully responsive and look great on phones, tablets and computers.

GoDaddy Canada recently launched Itty Bitty Ballers to help bring awareness to the opportunities of small business ownership in Canada, and to help Canadian small businesses get online. To demonstrate how easy it is for small businesses to create their online presence and how important an online presence is, was built using GoDaddy's new Website Builder.

"We're continuing to innovate to help Canadian small businesses get online and grow their ventures," said Jill Schoolenberg, Country Manager at GoDaddy Canada. "We're changing the approach by creating a mobile first experience allowing customers to focus on achieving their goals. GoDaddy's new Website Builder is unique in that it helps customers reach their audiences and drive results for their ventures."

GoDaddy's smart learning system surfaces insights and actions to Website Builder users to help them achieve their goals. For instance, upon logging in, customers receive engagement and activity updates and key ways to improve results, which might be something as simple as attaching their website to a social network or advice for developing a geographic-targeted Facebook advertising campaign. GoDaddy's learning system is powered by smart algorithms and machine learning that evolve with customers throughout their lifecycles to optimize results.

Build an Audience & Sell Online
Website Builder's integrated marketing features enable people to quickly improve their search rankings on Google and get their business on Facebook, leveraging the information and photos from their GoDaddy website. This same information helps customers jumpstart email marketing campaigns so customers, even those with no email marketing experience, can engage existing contacts and collect new ones.

Website Builder's Online Store includes everything needed to sell online, with a focus on making sales happen. New improvements allow customers to check out fast with a streamlined mobile checkout with reduced taps and swipes. Apple Pay support is built directly into the product, as are major credit cards and Paypal. Integrated product and inventory management and customizable shipping simplify the selling setup experience.
