There's always space in the market for easy to use tools that small business owners can use to create their websites. Today, the folks responsible for the popular uCoz website builder have announced the release of their new drag and drop website builder designed specifically for small businesses.
uKit is a drag-and-drop website builder that empowers micro and small sized businesses to create personalized websites in an easy yet effective way.
The user-created websites are designed to adapt seamlessly across all devices including mobile tablets and smartphones. While offering a range of templates and custom design options, the site limits user customizations based on recommendations from design professionals to help customers avoid “development gone wrong” scenarios like mismatched fonts, awkward color combinations, unprofessional headers and other design mishaps.
“Micro, small businesses and freelancers account for over 95% of the world’s enterprises and with increasing competition, an online presence has become even more vital. In the United States alone, around 50% of the businesses don’t have a website. We want to help business owners save on initial start-up costs with a do-it-yourself solution that is highly flexible and professional, yet affordable,” says Evgeny Kurt, uKit’s CEO and Co-Founder of uCoz.
Currently available in English and Russian, uKit appears to be a great new option to consider trying before making your decision on which website builder you'll choose for your business.
In addition to the existing functionality, more features are planned for later this year including: A landing page generator; a “magic wand” tool — an automatic AI-assisted conversion from the FB pages and outdated websites to new, redesigned responsive business websites and a white label solution for partners.
