GoDaddy Inc. has today announced the Australian launch of GoDaddy Studio, a new content creation tool designed for small and medium businesses to create beautiful visual content for their business for all platforms.
Compatible on both iOS and Android mobile apps and desktop, GoDaddy Studio includes thousands of customisable templates and easy-to-use tools, providing small business owners with a variety of options to develop beautiful visual assets to help their online presence stand out.
A range of eye-catching visuals, including logos, adverts, and branded content can be created for promoting their business on digital channels across their website, email, online store, and on social channels including Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, and Twitter.
GoDaddy Studio is built for use by non-designers and for when the use of professional designers isn’t possible, offering professional and beautiful results, even for beginners. By removing the friction and saving time in creating branded content, GoDaddy Studio is helping entrepreneurs more easily realise their creative vision for their businesses and connect more effectively with their customers.
Key features include the ability to layer video over images to produce attention-grabbing posts and sophisticated photo editing capabilities to create stunning visuals and product shots.
Ruth Frettingham, co-founder of Tapestry Revival, added: “The great thing about GoDaddy Studio is that if I want something more than simply a photograph on my social media, I can very easily create something from the templates or create my own custom design.”
“We started as hobbyists and amateurs, and GoDaddy has enabled us to take the leap and confidently compete in the market with a professional look that’s absolutely critical for success.”
The launch of GoDaddy Studio comes as social media continues to evolve as a key sales channel for businesses of every size. According to GoDaddy research, two in three (64 per cent) new businesses that started during the ongoing global pandemic reported using social media to market themselves, while a further 48 per cent surveyed said that they sell via social platforms.
With GoDaddy Studio included in Websites + Marketing, small business owners can achieve a consistent look for their business across all their platforms.
Commenting on the availability in Australia, Tamara Oppen, managing director of GoDaddy Australia, said: “More than ever, it’s crucial for Aussie small businesses and entrepreneurs to have professional branded content that stands out across social media, email marketing, and on their website and online store channels.”
“With GoDaddy Studio we’re empowering and supporting small business owners with the tools for them to bring their business visuals to life. Whether they’re designing a logo, creating a social media campaign or making their website or email marketing leap off the page, we’re equipping them with the skills of a seasoned design expert, along with a suite of integrated tools making it easy to create and manage their business online.”
“The launch of GoDaddy Studio is another exciting step to empower everyday entrepreneurs with the tools they need to start, scale and grow their business, irrespective of their budget or expertise.”
GoDaddy Studio comes in both free and premium versions.
