Why you need your own website
If small business owners didn’t understand the value of an online presence before lockdown, they certainly do now. Being online is key to growing your business. Whether you are a writer, artist, photographer or entrepreneur, a dedicated website that showcases your achievements is a brilliant way to reach customers and establish your reputation.
With social media plagued by trolling and impersonation issues, especially with Facebook, Instagram and Twitter moving to a subscription model for authentication, the only way to be sure of your online identity is to manage your own domain.
Building a website can be a daunting task
The problem is that unless you are an experienced programmer, building a website is an intimidating hassle. Even the most basic tools on the market are usually web applications that follow Windows interface conventions or use unfamiliar proprietary conventions. Having your site built by a professional is expensive, meanwhile – unaffordable if you’re trying to promote a sideline on a budget.
Wouldn’t it be better if you could download a simple and affordable Mac tool and let it do all the work for you? Better yet, one with a ChatGPT powered AI generator function that can build an entire website based on a brief summary of your needs?
Sparkle is the user-friendly alternative for Mac owners
If you are a Mac owner and want to build an attractive website, Sparkle is your best option. It’s built from the ground up as a native Mac application, meaning macOS users will find it familiar and intuitive: the interface mirrors the design of Apple applications like Pages and Keynote, and will remind you why you chose to use a Mac in the first place.
Despite being simple to use, Sparkle is packed with useful features to make your website shine. It supports parallax animation and stunning video features. If you need a calendar booking or a card payment system, Sparkle will implement it for you. You can use Sparkle’s enhanced website importer or the “Sketch and Figma plugins” to speed up your project. An automated SEO assistant helps you rank high on Google, and you can password protect pages for subscribers. Crucially, sites built with Sparkle are “static” meaning they are super fast and hacker resistant.
Best of all, Sparkle uses the latest AI technology to radically streamline the process, with a generator function that can build an entire website from a short prompt. You will no longer be paralyzed by indecision in the face of a clean slate: just type in your type of business or activity and a name and a custom website will be built for you, ready to personalize in your own style. It’s like having a website builder with endless templates.
Sparkle can be purchased outright for a one-time fee or used on a subscription basis; Macworld readers can use the coupon code MW2023 for a 15% discount. And there’s a trial version so you can see what you’re missing for free. Try it today.
