“A website for every business,” is the rallying cry that drove the vision and development of Sitely. Here in Australia, only 56% of businesses have a website. Our vision is for every business to have a website.
So we set about creating a service to eliminate every barrier between businesses and the websites they need:
Cost - Sitely is free. (An optional paid version is coming.)
Technical skill - Sitely requires no knowledge of tags or HTML. It is completely WYSIWYG. And requires only that you know how to drag things around a screen, and click to edit.
Design skill - Sitely comes with a (growing) range of industry-specific designs.
Writing skill - Sitely generates a site complete with industry-specific text that is customised for the business.
Time - Sitely builds a website instantly.
In less than five minutes, any business owner can sign up for a Sitely site and have a website generated specifically for them. They can select from a range of designs, or set about customising their own. They can tweak the content, add or remove pages, and publish when they’re ready.
And while we’ve focused heavily on the first five minutes of use, we’ve spent even more effort thinking through the lifecycle of creating, modifying, editing and the on-going maintenance of websites. Sitely is a website development tool you can use on a long-term basis.
