Why Businesses Are Choosing Dazzly Website Builder NZ in 2022?

Dazzly makes creating your own website easier and more convenient. It is suitable for businesses of every scope and size, and perfect for NZ businesses owners or aspiring entrepreneurs that want to develop and launch a website right away.

Here are a just a few reasons why businesses in New Zealand are using Dazzly.

Dazzly is a Form-Based Website Builder

While most website builders aim to bridge the gap between web designers and end customers, many still lack the user-friendly experience of Dazzly. One of the main reasons that Dazzly is so easy to use is that is a form-based website builder.

A form-based website builder is considered much simpler to use for the average consumer. You don’t need to worry about coding or the difficulty of using a drag-and-drop interface. This helps to streamline the design process.

Dazzly couldn’t be easier to use. You don’t need to worry about meeting with IT specialists and web designers and conversations filled with technical jargon.

Most of us are familiar with filling out forms and uploading images, so you will easily understand Dazzly’s straight-forward form-based process. All you need to do is simply provide the information requested and sit back as it builds the website for you. With all the guidance and support you need within one trusted, 100% New Zealand made platform.

There’s no coding to worry about, with an intuitive user-interface that is easy to learn no matter your experience with computers. This gives our customers fewer things to worry about, allowing to focus on designing and developing the best website for their needs.

Dazzly is an Easier Website Builder than the New Zealand Competition

Time is one of the most valuable resources for any business.

The more time you save developing your website, the more you can put into other aspects of running your business. So, by making things as simple as possible, we help businesses save invaluable time and resources.

Thanks to our form-based design, Dazzly is the easiest option for business owners in New Zealand to create a website in their own home or office.

Users can create sleek websites with minimal effort, requiring much less input from IT and web design professionals. This means less time wasted talking to the various people typically needed to design a website!

There is also much less confusion about what is needed to build a website. Many small business owners attempt to build their own website, with the best of intentions, only to find the software is incredibly complex to use.

This can be very daunting. It may cause many to hold off on their website design plans as they are overwhelmed and confused by the process of building a website. The longer you hold off developing a website, the more customers you are potentially missing out on. It will also take longer to establish a basic level of visibility for your website online.

By giving our customers the tools to build a website from scratch, they can develop their own website at a fraction of the time (and therefore cost). They can also avoid the hassle of calling and working with a web designer.

We have full control over the code, servers, and network infrastructure. There is no outsourcing to third-party organisations to save resources. This gives us complete control over the technology. It ensures a certain flexibility that is lacking in many other providers in New Zealand.

By handling everything in-house, we also offer the best customer experience for our clients and their target consumers too.

We deliver websites faster than the competition, no matter the device or location of your users – even in rural locations!

Kiwis love our instant site builder!

At Dazzly, we've been working hard behind the scenes to be able to offer all new users a package we have put together. The ‘instant site builder nz’ package – with the goal of getting you off on the right track in your online journey.

Often is the case that people start a business together with a partner that can handle different duties and responsibilities. Usually the website is considered more of an 'administrative task' rather than a marketing opportunity. However, customers from the North Island to the South Island have told us that the final text and images are a combination of both partners efforts.

We typically see the more 'administrative' focused partner sign-up to dazzly. They then publish their first draft website with some text and images within several minutes. Dazzly has a small learning curve - it is the easiest instant site builder to use. Following this they will make several refinements and then publish a few more times to get things looking spot-on.

After the website content is done and everyone's happy, they subscribe and join Dazzly’s growing list of happy customers. Shortly after that, they'll have their new website on their new .co.nz domain. For just around 1 hour of time and a small monthly fee, they are now able to control their online destiny. With Dazzly you also get a clear snapshot of your website visitor statistics. No more waiting for days or weeks to get a website report from your website man, now you can see data at any time on demand.

Finding the time where both partners can give their input is not easy, but it is worth the investment. The longer a website is online, the more reputation it will gain on major search engines such as Google. Additionally, with more time online, you have an increased opportunity to add content. Posting write-ups of recent jobs, customer experiences or other stories will help improve your search rank over time. Unlike using a web developer, there is no additional cost. You can take care of updating and publishing the website yourself with ease. By using dazzly, you don't need to go through the long and cumbersome process of getting them to do it.

New Dazzly customers can expect a call from one of our friendly team to ask about your experience and to see how we can make things better for you. We also offer a free phone or zoom consultation to discuss how you can get the most out of your website, with some straight-forward plain English tips. Additionally, we may offer you a custom email address. If you have subscribed to our newsletter you will also receive tips and other helpful information to make your website rank better.

The instant site builder package allows us to offer new customers the ability to have a custom email address to complement their website. This means that you can use Dazzly as a one-stop-shop for domains, email hosting and websites. Get it all taken care of in record time so we can ensure your business is looking professional from the get-go. Feel free to call us on 0800 122 090 or support@dazzly.co.nz to take advantage of this excellent offer!

How to get a Wholesale Business Website in New Zealand?

Laura runs a food wholesale business in Auckland. When the pandemic hit, Laura knew that she needed to get creative and pivot her business. She needed to open new sales and marketing channels that would be able to function during lock-downs.

Laura doesn’t have a long history of customers ordering online. In her business, orders have almost always come via phone, sometimes by email and even some by fax. Laura’s customers, who are local retail stores, generally order based on their own end-customer’s demand. Features such as automatic re-order notifications weren’t applicable and other “bells and whistles” didn’t seem to be a good “fit”.

It makes sense though. There will always be more “retail” and “end-customer” focused business than wholesale. Laura checked several New Zealand website builder offerings and while some were attractive, none of them seemed to have a tailored solution for wholesalers.

Laura’s needs were quite different than a typical ecommerce store website:

  • Simplicity and ease-of-use was more important than design. Laura’s customers had never bought wholesale food supplies online before – it needed to be simple and easy to use.

  • Flexibility to use “Product Codes” rather than Product Name. Laura’s customers order large volumes of product based off of codes, ideally this wouldn’t change.

  • Ability to hide the price. Customer-specific pricing would be desirable in the future, but currently was a bit over-the-top for Laura’s needs. Having a “price on enquiry” would be sufficient for this business case instead of showing the price to all website visitors. In wholesale, pricing is based off the customer’s order quantity, previous orders and other factors. It would not be suitable to show the price to public website visitors.

  • Did not wish to accept payments online. Laura wished to manually handle customer transactions and facilitate payment via bank transfer and other previously used means.

Having tried the international and local options, Laura came across Dazzly and signed-up with the ecommerce store template.

After having used the ecommerce template for some time, she realised that again it wasn’t the best option for her and she reached out to our support team.

Should you need to contact support regarding any question under the sun related to websites – we’re available – 24/7 – and a friendly kiwi team member can assist you – 0800 122 090support@dazzly.co.nz

After a short chat with Dazzly support it was determined that she - like many other wholesale businesses looking to create a website, would be best suited with the Product Enquiry template.

Within a few hours of switching the template Laura had set up her own website. Having run it by her business partner Jane, they were both happy to give it a thorough test and then sign-up to Dazzly on the day.

By registering a .co.nz domain with Dazzly they had a professional looking website up in no time.

Within a few days of the website going live, Laura and Jane had shared their website with close friends and customers. Shortly after they were placing product enquiries through the website.

They also took up the offer to support custom email addresses. Now they can receive their wholesale product enquiries straight to their shared email inbox.

Talk about a digital pivot in a short amount of time.

Having now used the platform for over a month, both Laura and Jane are happy with the transition. Their customers have found it a breeze to put their wholesale orders through the website. By switching to Dazzly, not only have they saved time, but have made product ordering processes more efficient for everyone.

If you are a wholesale business considering getting a website, then we encourage you to consider our New Zealand website builder option – Dazzly – equipped with the Product Enquiry template. Backed by a solid kiwi support team your wholesale business should be ready to get online and trade!
