Build a free website for your business in Digital Marketing Center

According to the Small Business Association, more than 36% of small businesses do not have a website. This is a problem given a recent study that shows that 80% of customers will research a company online before visiting or making a purchase with them. Without a website, a small business is at risk of losing these potential customers.

With Digital Marketing Center's new website creation service, we hope to remove the barriers of cost and lack of time by providing a free and simple solution small businesses can leverage to get started with a website. Now, small businesses can save time by importing their website information from a Facebook page or an existing advertising campaign. We’ll take care of formatting the layout of their page, so no expertise is required! Digital Marketing Center’s new website creation service will enable small businesses to expand their digital marketing efforts, allowing them to grow their business.

How to create your free website with Digital Marketing Center

Begin by signing up for a Digital Marketing Center account. When asked to provide a website during your advertising campaign creation, select the option: I don't have a website. Help me build one for free. At this point, you'll only need to decide your website URL and will be able to continue with your campaign creation. After sign-up, you can begin creating your website.

If you choose to onboard to Digital Marketing Center without an advertising campaign, you can still create your website by onboarding through our social media management option. After sign-up, start creating your website by clicking My website near the upper right corner of Digital Marketing Center:
