Is the enchant website builder New Zealand's latest DIY trend?

The website designers at enchant websites certainly think so - and the customers agree!

From the perspective of the founders of enchant...

Having already developed a successful website design and development company in Auckland we knew what resources and strategic thought it took to pull together a high-quality website design in a reasonable time-frame. As our business expanded it became apparent that it would be increasingly difficult to maintain our high standard of website design production without innovating further.

Hence in 2017 we began to develop enchant. We knew from the outset that the best web technologies would change before we finished enchant, so we ensured that it will be flexible and upgradable to continue to provide our customer's the best - we will never lower our website design quality.

We also built enchant to utilise the latest standards of website infrastructure offered by Amazon and other cloud computing technology providers. This decision was simple. What was also obvious to us was that by taking the time, money and effort to invest into enchant we would be able to help a very large number of New Zealand businessses.

“I was looking for a New Zealand website builder and found enchant. With the Service Warrior template it was easy to get up and running online. I didn't have to spend thousands to get a website that attracts new customers.”

Every business owner should create their own website

There is a perception that building your own website is too difficult. Enchant is changing that.

No longer do you need to be a website design, graphics designer or have IT skills to build a website. Building a website with enchant is easy as pie.

If you can perform a Google search, send an email or write in a Word document then you are more than qualified to create a website yourself with enchant.

Every business needs a website.

In the year 2021 there is no excuse not to have a website design online for your business.

The simple truth is that a website created with enchant will rank well on Google and attract leads and enquiries for your business.

Even if you want to ignore the website once it is online, that is far better than not creating a website in the first place, because search reputation takes time to gather, and you can leave the website to do that while you grow your business.

“I needed to get a website and found enchant easy to use. Having tried other DIY website tools, enchant was the best website builder for me - and it's made here in New Zealand!”

Join your fellow Kiwis and try enchant today!

Kiwis love our instant site builder!

We are seeing a solid increase in the users joining enchant in the month of March. To celebrate, we have been working very hard in the background to be able to offer all new sign-ups a new package we have put together – the ‘instant site builder nz’ package – with the goal of getting you off on the right track with your online journey.

Often it is the case that people start a business together with their partner and that they handle different duties and responsibilities. Often the website is considered more of an administration task rather than a marketing task or opportunity. People from the top of the North Island to the bottom of the South Island have told us that the final website text and pictures are usually a combination of both partners efforts.

Finding the time where both partners can give their input is not easy, but it is worth the investment. The longer a website is launched and online, the more reputation it will gain on major search engines such as Google. Additionally, with more time online, you have more opportunity to post articles of recent jobs, customer experiences or other enjoyable stories about your business – this rich content will help improve your rank over time. Unlike if you created a website using a web developer, there is no additional cost to you because you can take care of updating and publishing the website yourself with the ease-of using enchant, rather than going through the long and cumbersome process of getting them to do it.

We typically see the more administrative focused partner sign-up to enchant and publish the first draft website with some text and photos within 10 minutes or so. Enchant has a small learning curve - it is the easiest instant site builder to use. Following this they will make several refinements and publish several times to get things spot-on (this again, can take 10 to 20 minutes). From here the content will sit drafted, a typical problem with all businesses – no matter how big or small, content will sit until both parties (business owners) are able to approve it.

Following getting the content together, the website is published, if everyone is happy, they join enchant’s growing happy group of customers and publish their website on their new .co.nz domain. Their investment of around 1 hour of time and a small monthly fee will see them now able to control their online destiny and see the results of their efforts. No waiting for days to get a website report from your slack joe website man down the road, now you can see data at any time by clicking on ‘Statistics’ on the menu.

New paid customers can expect a phone call, likely from one of the two creators of enchant, to ask about your experience and to see if there is anything else that we can do to make things better for you. Additionally, we will offer you a custom email address and likely a free phone consultation to discuss how you can get the most out of your website with some straight-forward plain English tips. You will also receive an automated email with a good checklist (again, all very simple thing) for you to tick-off over time to help your website rank better.

This instant site builder packaged deal will enable us to offer all new customers the ability to have a custom email address to complement their custom domain and website. This means that you can now use enchant as a one-stop shop for domains, email hosting, websites and web hosting – and get it all taken care of in record time. To be clear – the new package is our ability to offer custom domains, emails, hosting and the website itself all together – so we can ensure your business is looking professional from the get-go. Feel free to call us on 0800 122 090 or support@enchantwebsites.co.nz to take advantage of this excellent offer!

Can a website page builder actually make a quality website?

The short answer is YES, it is possible to make a quality website without a website designer. In fact the potential for these website do it yourself (DIY) platforms is limitless when it comes to website design and functional requirements.

Currently there is a misconception that using a page builder may produce a substandard website or something inferior to the standard of a website built by a website designer. This is simply not true.

Enchant is breaking new ground in 2021, and is quickly changing this perception by producing beautiful, mobile-ready, website designs built by the customers' themselves.

You can either spend 10 minutes looking up a local website design company, and wondering whether they can meet your needs and your budget, or you can spend 10 minutes using enchant and know, with certainty, that you will love the final website design because it will be ready to go!

A quality website depends on several things:

  • A high-quality visual website design
  • Smooth website functionality
  • Being Mobile-ready
  • Having an excellent Technical Score

enchant is less than 1 year old and is already knocking all of these factors out of the park.

With enchant you can make a high-quality website design yourself. With our extensive library of stock photos and video, you won't need to collect material yourself if you don't have the time. Of course, it's easy to add your own images and video should you wish to.

Our templates range from single page websites, 3 page websites to 5 page websites and beyond. We have the template to suit your needs, and they are all high-quality. This fact is reflected in our User Statistics which shows that all of our websites are selected at a fairly similar proportion. This shows us that they are all in demand, being tailored in their design to meet the needs specific to a variety of businesses across many sectors.

All our high-quality templates, including video templates, are working and available on mobile devices. They can be viewed on your mobile phone immediately.

If you need to list products, take enquiries, accept files or other common functions, enchant has you covered, and should you need any support, for any reason throughout the process, you can call us directly on 0800 122 090. Our support team will talk you through the process. Our aim is for enchant to be the greatest page builder for everyone.

We have grown our business over the past seven years, and have helped many New Zealand businesses with our in-depth knowledge and hands-on approach. Now we are ready to extend that same expertise and skill-set to enable you to build an exceptional website using enchant.

Google's Chrome Browser uses a development tool called Lightbox to measure several metrics to evaluate the performance of websites. These measurements are for:

  • Technical Performance
  • Accessibility
  • Search Engine Optimisation
  • Best Practices

You can evaluate any website using the Lightbox tool by pressing the F-12 key on Google Chrome and navigating to Lightbox.

You will see that all enchant websites score very well in every category and factor. Our competitors' websites, including some high-end custom designed, pricey websites, score far below this. Their low scores mean you get a slower loading website which means a worse customer experience.

The conclusion is, you get a fast loading, sharp, smooth functioning website with enchant, right here in New Zealand, superior to the traditional website design process.
