Website builder and host GoDaddy has unveiled a new tool in the UK aimed at helping smaller businesses improve the look and presence of their brands online.
The feature, Studio, offers a suite of features to simply create more visually appealing content, and work across a variety of social platforms such as LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook & Twitter. It launched in the US back in July 2021.
The tool is available for free with a selection of templates and images, or as part of a GoDaddy website builder package, with a larger catalogue of images and fonts.
GoDaddy's Studio tool has one aim in mind – enabling its users to create professional and appealing looking content without experience, or relying on professional content creators.
In order to do this, it offers a range of images, templates and fonts, to generate simple but effective content that can be used on websites, social media or even email newsletters.
Studio also lets its users edit pre-existing imagery, for example, given a product shot a blank background so that it can be cleanly inserted into a template.
Studio can be accessed via the GoDaddy site, but also has its own dedicated app, available via the Google Play and Apple App stores.
“GoDaddy Studio caters to that need by simplifying the process of creating content, and providing all the necessary tools and templates in one place. GoDaddy Studio helps entrepreneurs realise the creative vision for their brand and connect more effectively with customers.” – Ben Law, Head of GoDaddy UK & Ireland
How Much is GoDaddy Studio?
There are currently two ways to get GoDaddy Studio.
The first is GoDaddy Studio Free, which, as the name suggests, is free. No strings attached here, the tools are limited, but available to everyone, and there's no need to enter payment details. At this tier you can expect standard templates for your designs, a selection of images and graphics, and fonts. It should provide enough for anyone starting out, or those who aren't looking to create much content.
If you're looking to get a bit more creative, then you can get access to more templates, fonts and images, then you'll need to sign up for one of GoDaddy's website builder packages, which has this extended Studio functionality built-in. The cheapest way to do this is with GoDaddy's Basic package, which starts at $6.99/£5.59 per month (if paid annually).
Picking the Right Website Builder
If you own a business, no matter how small, an online presence is a must. This has never been truer than during the pandemic, which according to some resources is responsible for increasing the online shopping market alone by $105 billion.
The good news is that getting online and creating a professional looking online platform has never been easier, and cheaper. There's no need to employ a dedicated website designer – if you can start a business, you can create a website too. This is especially true with website builders such as GoDaddy, or others, such as Wix and Squarespace.
Modern website builders allow you to pick from existing templates, drag and drop content, integrate with social media and even create a retail platform in minutes.
There are plenty to choose from, so we've made things easier for you by picking out some of the best providers out there:
