Using Google My Business, small business owners can create their first website for free in less than 10 minutes. Because it’s so easy that it basically creates itself!
Google has officially launched a single-page website builder which is designed for small businesses. Called “Website”, it is a simple tool that assists small-scale companies to create and edit their websites fast on either mobile or desktop. They use a company’s Google listing to build the site, taking care of the design and making sure the website is found in Search and Maps.
Marissa Nordahl, Community & Social Media Manager at Google announced it in a Google My Business Help thread yesterday:
One of the most common actions people take when exploring a Google listing is to go to the web site, but we know that getting a website can still be a challenge for a lot of small business owners around the world: too complex, too expensive, too time consuming. Millions of small businesses (60% of small businesses globally) don’t yet have a website.
Website is a free tool that allows small business owners to create a simple, striking website in just a few minutes. It’s easy, and you can create and edit your new website from your computer or your phone!
The new tool promises to give users custom domain name and auto-updates. Plus, it’s mobile friendly, drives calls and visits and it’s manageable from mobile devices. With the help of Website, you can customize a really good-looking website within seconds.
Website is now available globally for any business within Google My Business.
