What’s the No. 1 challenge small business owners face in managing their online activities? Knowing the right steps to take online to grow their business. ~ GoDaddy Small Business Owner Survey November 2018
Creating an awesome free website is a key online strategy for any small business owner. But the reality is, it’s only one piece of the puzzle. If your goals include building a brand, attracting new customers, and ultimately growing your business, it’s going to take more than just a website.
What about social media? Email marketing? SEO?
When you’re getting a business off the ground, finding the time, confidence and resources to figure out these marketing tactics can be difficult.
At GoDaddy, we’re committed to delivering tools and services that are not only easy to use — they also help you achieve your goals. Our new Websites + Marketing solution integrates websites, marketing and eCommerce tools with the guidance needed to achieve success.

Get smart, data-driven advice with GoDaddy InSight™
GoDaddy InSight™ is a smart learning system that provides data and guidance based on your business industry and goals.
We recognize that not every business has the same goals. A restaurant is focused on filling their tables, an accountant may be focused on attracting local business, and a sporting goods shop could be looking to expand into online sales.
InSight’s algorithms create a custom Action Plan tailored to your business.
How do you know it’s working? We also provide a custom InSight Score using performance data like website traffic, social media activity and online sales — benchmarking your business to others in your industry and region, with a similar online tenure.
See data across your website, social media, online reviews, online store and appointment bookings all in one dashboard. Easily monitor new reviews from Google, Yelp and Facebook and get reminders to respond.
Be everywhere online that matters
Improve your search engine ranking through search engine optimization so more people can find you.
GoDaddy Websites + Marketing automatically reviews your site and optimizes it for search engines like Google, Yahoo! and Bing.
Within nine months, websites using GoDaddy SEO saw their Google traffic increase 2.5 times as compared to GoDaddy websites without it.
You can also attract more customers by listing your business name, address and phone number, hours and website on Google and Yelp. Your listing will appear when people are searching on Google Search and Maps and on Yelp.
Save time and update an existing Facebook Page or create a new one using the information and photos from your website. We’ll suggest ideas to post on your Facebook Page to engage with customers. Even post products directly from your online store to drive more sales.
You can also connect to Instagram to easily monitor your account activity.
Engage your customers with a built-in email marketing tool that integrates with your website and automatically create eye-catching emails with a consistent look and feel to reinforce your brand. Add a “subscribe now” section to your website to grow your email list and send emails to your customers to stay connected.
