Silver Spring, MD (PRWEB) July 22, 2014
Webs, the digital services division of Vistaprint N.V. and provider of the world's premier marketing platform for the small business, today announced the addition of more than 450 new website design themes to its do-it-yourself (DIY) website builder tool. The new templates include designs tailored to 20 different industries, enabling small businesses to build professional websites without any design experience.
The new mobile-optimized themes are broadly customizable, giving small businesses the option to personalize layout, fonts, graphics, backgrounds and more. According to a recently published Webs survey of more than 2,200 small businesses, customization and available templates are the top deciding factors when small business owners choose their website provider. In addition, Webs now offers theme-matching physical marketing products courtesy of its parent company, Vistaprint, enabling small businesses to complement their online presence with consistently branded products such as business cards, flyers, apparel and signs.
"We sought our customers' feedback on what they need to build and manage their online presence and found additional themes to be the most-requested item," said Scott Bowen, general manager at Webs. "We answered this demand by creating multiple layouts for the different industries we serve. With the addition of more than 450 new themes and availability of matching physical marketing products, we offer small business owners an opportunity to create a professional brand presence with affordable, easy-to-use tools."
Users can search, filter and browse themes by industry or key terms. Additionally, users can easily switch between themes in order to find the right fit for their business without having to rebuild their website, and can seamlessly adjust their online presence as their business evolves. Webs is the only DIY tool to allow users to effortlessly switch website layouts after editorial content has been added.
"We're extremely excited to provide small business owners with many more design options, so they can find the perfect fit for their industry and brand," said Nick Swider, product manager at Webs. "A team of a dozen graphic designers worked to create numerous new designs while still making it easy for small business owners to filter and search through them."
The new themes offer designs customized for 20 different industries: animals and pet care; automotive and transportation; business services; education and childcare; food and beverage; information and technology; manufacturing; real estate; travel and accommodation; agriculture and farming; art and entertainment; beauty and spa; construction, repair, and improvement; finance and insurance; health and social services; law, public safety, and politics; marketing and communications; religious and spiritual; and sports and fitness.
