Microsoft just launched a free tool for building websites. The website creation service is part of Microsoft’s Digital Marketing Center, and it lets you create a website from scratch or by importing content from a social media page or advertising campaign. The goal of the service is to help small businesses improve their marketing efforts.
Microsoft highlights that according to the Small Business Association, over 36% of small businesses do not have websites. That can be an issue because, according to Blue Corona, between 70-80% of people research a company online before visiting the business or making a purchase.
To use the website creation service, you need to sign up for a Digital Marketing Center account. After entering some information, you can click the “My website” button in the top-right corner of the page. There, you can choose how to build your website.
