TORONTO, Ont. — GoDaddy Inc. (NYSE: GDDY) the world’s largest technology provider dedicated to small businesses, launched its Professional Web Services (PWS) in Canada today. GoDaddy’s PWS products include Website Services, Search Engine Optimization (SEO) Services and Logo Design Services, which all help SMBs create an effective online presence at a fraction of a design agency cost.
“We’ve talked with many Canadian small business owners and we have heard that they’re challenged to build professional-looking websites within their budgets,” said Jill Schoolenberg, Vice President of GoDaddy Canada. “Our Professional Web Services make it simple and cost effective for Canadian SMBs to benefit from a professional-looking website and SEO services, while enabling small business owners to focus on what they do best – running their businesses,” added Schoolenberg.
GoDaddy’s Website Services allow small businesses to have a high-quality website built for a low, one-time fee. Customers can choose from three web design options:
• WordPress Website Design: Utilizing the WordPress platform, these sites are tailored to each business’ unique requirements with an eye toward their specific industry. With up to 10 pages included and built in as little as 10 business days, this product is best suited for SMBs that need a site with advanced functionality.
• Standard Website Design: A professional-looking, informational site with up to eight pages, created in as little as seven business days. These websites grow alongside businesses with six hours of included update time.
• Simple Website Design: Built in as few as seven business days, this single page website is for businesses who need to display basic contact information.
“I needed a website to help drive customers to my business,” said Lucia Di Pasquale, owner of wellness facility Float Pool Spa in Hamilton, Ontario. “I liked the idea of having someone else do the work for me. I’m not a web designer, so working with GoDaddy was a great experience. I told them what I was looking for and they came back to me with a design. I let them know which changes I wanted and in less than two weeks my site was up, and it looks great.”
In addition to building websites, GoDaddy PWS offers assistance with SEO and logo design to provide customers with more comprehensive online solutions.
GoDaddy’s new full-service SEO Services offering gives customers a custom, fully managed SEO product that includes ongoing on-site and off-site optimization. To develop an initial SEO strategy, the SEO Services team researches the customer’s website, competitors, and industry in order to determine the best keywords to target. The team then implements specific SEO actions, such as meta-tag optimization and custom blog posts, in order to help search engines see that the site is the most trusted and relevant answer to online searches for those keywords. Optimal first-page ranking typically occurs after six-to- nine months. Customers are able to see exactly what SEO work GoDaddy has completed and track keyword progress through an online dashboard.
GoDaddy’s Logo Design Service helps customers who want a new logo get the design they want. A special application called the Logo Studio acts as a visual questionnaire, helping customers select colours, font styles and graphical elements. Experienced graphic designers take the information from the questionnaire and work directly with customers to produce a compelling, one-of-a-kind logo in only three-to-five business days.
