If you think it’s not possible to create a stunning-looking website with a website builder, then you clearly haven’t seen our gallery.

We had a lot of fun creating this blog post. We talked to a Swedish band, an English writer and two great designers, as well as many other interesting people who make their living online using their websites. You guys are the best!





Name: Bobsmade (www.bobsmade.com)

What’s the site about? “You give us the subject, we create the design.” Custom-made shoes, t-shirts, glasses and more.

Website builderJimdo

What Bobsmade says: “I used Jimdo to make my website. It’s a fantastic website builder and it really couldn’t have been any easier. I now have an online store which features my artwork, a gallery which is really easy to add to, and my own email address – all managed from one central location. Jimdo go out of their way to help with technical support too. I can get in touch with their friendly and, more importantly, knowledgeable support staff any time of the day or night. I highly recommend them, and they’re great value for money too.”

artysmarty shop

artysmarty shop

Name: Artysmartyshop (www.artysmartyshop.com)

What’s the site about? Cute accessories, such as pins, bags and necklaces from this online store from Ireland.

Website builderWebnode

A few words from the store owner Angela: “Like many small business owners, I was working to a tight budget. Webnode was definitely the obvious option for me. Other similar sites didn’t offer e-commerce at all, which made them a non-starter, and the cost for web designers to set up and host a site also wasn’t an option for me, cost-wise. Initially I was reluctant to pay money to get the extra features as I thought there may not be any IT support if something went wrong, but I’ve found the service from the support team to be very good. They’re prompt and quick to resolve any issues.”

Country: Ireland





What’s the site about? This online store offers religious products combined with ‘exceptional customer service‘.

Website builderJimdo

What the owners say: “My experience with using Jimdo was quite pleasant. It’s pretty easy to use, it has a very intuitive User Interface with beautiful graphics. Even though, it’s not the most robust system in the world, it’s good enough for small business owners. It needs a few more years to cook, I believe.
In the beginning, I had doubts that the system is not going to do what i wanted it to do, because I didn’t see anyone using it to sell more than 50 items, but I was planning to have at least 1000 items. Anyway, over all I am pretty happy with the result.”
