SiteBuilder as a Selling Point

Based on a poll we just ran on our Facebook page, many of you take advantage of SiteBuilder to create and maintain your websites. SiteBuilder is GDI’s built in website building tool and is designed so anyone can build a site in just minutes. Because of this, SiteBuilder is a great “selling” point. But since GDI requires no selling, we’ll call it a great marketing point. Read on for SiteBuilder’s big benefits to help you market it.

It’s Simple

No code and no special skills required, SiteBuilder allows you to build entire website pages with just a few clicks of the mouse. As long as someone has basic computer knowledge, they can build a great site with our SiteBuilder. For someone hesitant of all the work that comes with a website, this is huge selling point.

It’s Quick

Many people will think they don’t have the time to devote to building an entire website, but SiteBuilder changes that. GDI’s SiteBuilder does so much of the work for you that you can build several pages out completely in a short period of time. Better yet, with no code, there’s no need to constantly check back and make sure everything is working right. GDI’s SiteBuilder is designed to be hands off and glitch free once you build your site.


What is one reason SiteBuilder is so simple and so quick? Our templates. GDI’s professionally designed templates take the guess work out of designing your website. You can choose form template categories based on your site’s theme and then chose from specific page designs. We’ve taken the guess work out, but left you with so much freedom to customize your site.

GDI Tools

Once you have the text, photos, and design of your page set up, it’s time to add the extras to make your page stand out. Ads, banners, videos and more can help your page be successful. But you don’t have to scour the internet and learn how to add this all to your page. GDI Tools in SiteBuilder provides you with banners, buttons, movies and more. All of these can be added to your page with a simple “drag and drop.”
