Webydo website builder is shaking up the web design market with its professional features and competitive pricing. You may wonder why someone needs to reinvent the wheel and introduce another DIY website creator into the already overly saturated market. The point is that Webydo isn’t just another page maker for newbies, but a multi-faceted web design platform targeted for the professional web designer. Presently, only 3% of the websites being published are coming from such amateur DIY creators and over 70% of design budgets are going to hiring a developer. This leaves web designers in a pickle. Let’s explore how Webydo is now catering to the specific needs of these pros.
Most conventional website creators provide users with pre-designed templates leaving not so much room for customization. This is where Webydo goes above and beyond and gives total freedom of web design to their users: their Design Management System (DMS) is developed in the tradition of Adobe Photoshop or InDesign. Instead of offering hundreds of default themes, their DMS offers a set of pro-level features allowing designers to create literally anything directly in their browser.
Using the patent pending code generator, all designs are automatically converted into pixel perfect websites instead manually writing HTML or CSS. This once lost time can now be allocated to focusing on the creative process and speaking with the client.
Yet the most distinctive feature of Webydo is the Dashboard. Its scope of functions runs the gamut from major site settings configuration to conducting financial transactions and re-branding the system. Let’s take a closer look at some of these features:
- My sites: use this tab to check your project’s inbox; attach custom domains; update your plan; change passwords; insert Google Analytics, Webmaster Tool and other codes; add new collaborators (Designers or Content Managers); send payment requests (Bill My Client feature).
- Build Your Brand: open this tab in your Webydo dashboard to turn this dashboard into YOUR OWN web office through uploading and installing your own logotypes. This means your client will see YOUR brand when entering the website’s CMS, and you will feel like home in your dashboard (however, I bet you will get this feel long before using this option :)).
- Sharing: Want to get feedback from your client/friends? Just share your design (it will be editable if you so choose!) by copying the unique embed code and sending it to your client/collaborator.
The Dashboard allows designers to manage many websites simultaneously by gathering the most important project management features all in one place. With such a website creator you will always have your ducks in a row. Most importantly, it allows designers to lock specific parameters from being edited while clients or third parties enter the site update, change or edit other areas. For example, you have recently inserted the “Articles & collections” feature and now the client’s needs to change an image or text, but you don’t want them to delete something else by mistake. You have the option to set it so they can change just that element.
Once you have published your website either on Webydo’s subdomain or using your own previously purchased domain name, you will enjoy their advanced cloud hosting infrastructure: you will get maximum loading speed, security and uptime with minimum effort on your part. Webydo Team monitors their servers 24/7 and runs automatic backups, so that your valuable data will be retrieved easily in case of loss or other sudden disruptions.
You can design a website with Webydo from A to Z absolutely risk-free. Sign up to the platform using your email and a password, no credit card information required and you’ll be on your way without a hitch.
