The global web hosting company, GoDaddy Inc., has made an initiative to helps SMEs grow through its first national campaign in the Philippines that shares the benefits of creating a strong online presence using GoDaddy’s user-friendly and integrated products and services.
Partnering with AXN Asia and entrepreneur Maggie Wilson-Consunji to inspire small business owners and entrepreneurs to create a secured online presence, GoDaddy has reintroduced its Website Builder. It is a tool designed to simplify the process of website development for SMEs and anyone who wants to expand their market online. Through this feature provided by GoDaddy, SMEs now have the power to build and design their own professional-looking website with its customizable templates.
Using her in-depth knowledge and interest for interior design and her love for food, TV host Maggie Wilson-Consunji conceptualized a café and store where people can shop for unique home décor and furniture to enhance their homes, and at the same time, enjoy rich blends of brewed coffee and sumptuous sandwiches. Bringing the cafe and home store combo to life at Acacia Estates Maggie saw the need for the expansion of her brand, Casa Consunji, to reach her target market. This leads her to work with GoDaddy and establish a secured, SSL-certified website with an e-commerce portal for customers who want to browse her products and shop online.
“Having a strong and secure online presence is key to help my ventures, like Casa Consunji, get discovered and attract more customers. I am able to reach people who otherwise wouldn’t know about my business with my website, and make it easier for them to buy with my online store,” Maggie Wilson-Consunji shares.
Maggie’s new website proves that with online tools such as GoDaddy Website Builder, people can build a beautiful and professional looking website in the time it practically takes them to watch an episode of their favorite TV show. It’s also an avenue to help entrepreneurs and small business owners promote their products and services and engage with their customers, in their local area and across the country.
“It’s never been easier to start a business online, with more tools now easily available and more affordable. The time is now for Filipino small business owners and entrepreneurs to consider how an online presence can help their venture grow. With GoDaddy Website Builder for example, you can create a professional website in under an hour without having a lot of technical knowledge,” says Tina Shieh, GoDaddy senior marketing manager for Asia.
