When you build your own website with user-friendly tools (like Webs, of course) it’s easy create a good website. But what takes a website from good to great? A cohesive, thoughtful brand represented throughout the site experience. A great example of this comes from today’s Webs user example site, The Foresters.

The Foresters is a pop punk band made up of three teenage brothers from Bethany Connecticut. Evan, Hayden, and Liam Nork have just released their third album, Sun Songs, which we thoroughly enjoyed listening to on their website!

Today’s Webs user example site is sure to brighten up your day. The Australia-based Afrobeat African Drumming Company provides truly original teambuilding and wellness programs, as well as other forms of interactive entertainment. And they offer it all on a colorful, well organized website that is chock-full of social proof and customer-centric content.

There’s a lot to explore on Afrobeat’s website—they offer lots of detailed information about what they do; complete with beautiful imagery that really gives visitors a sense of the company. What really stands out to us about this website, however, is the focus on the customer and their needs.

In honor of National Small Business Week, we’re taking a look at a Webs user website that highlights a whole industry of small business owners that most people don’t think about interacting with, but who touch our lives every day: farmers!

Washivore.org is a hub for all things farming in Washington State. Their well-branded, professional website has a lot going for it, but it succeeds in three key areas specifically. Let’s take a look:

Visual Presentation
Upon arriving at Washivore.org, you are greeted by colorful imagery that really draws you in. There’s a perfectly-sized header image carousel, images for the links to their highest-value landing pages, a rotating image gallery further down the page, and even some video embeds. But despite the volume of visual content on this website, good layout and tasteful color choices keep it from feeling overwhelming or cluttered.

With the return of Daylight Savings Time here in the US, we are finally starting to see springtime on the horizon. And as the northeastern part of the country finally starts to thaw, you can feel the excitement about shedding winter layers and actually taking time to think about style again. With that in mind, we thought today was an excellent time to feature a Webs user website that we really enjoy: Man Of The Hour Magazine.

Not only is this an excellent online magazine website example, the site is jam-packed with insightful lifestyle articles. As described on their Facebook page, Man Of The Hour is “dedicated to cultivating the emerging generations of sophisticated men.” If you’re thinking about starting an online magazine or journal and want to emulate this website, take a look at the 3 things that make this a site successful:

Spring is only 21 days away here on the East Coast, which can mean only one thing: wedding season approaches!

To get into the spirit, we thought we would browse some of our amazing Webs user sites and feature a few services that are devoted to making your wedding occasion a special one.

But first, let us remind you what makes any website a great website:

We surveyed the inside experts here at Webs – from the people who make our tools to those who help users make the most of them – and found that 64% of respondents have not purchased something from a website due to its design or its content.

Majestic Wonders Website Header

Every few weeks, we feature Webs users here on the blog and highlight many of the interesting ways that they are using Webs to create truly stunning websites.

Recently, we’ve featured a dance psychologist, a beautiful art store, and a Turkish ice cream company!

In those posts, we’ve shared how you can achieve similar designs, use the same features, and learn from the experience of others.

Today we’d like to dig a little deeper and share a full small business success story. Several weeks ago, I reached out to Kerri, the owner of Majestic Wonders Photography, to see if she would be interested in sharing her story on the Webs blog. As a product owner on the Webs team, I was interested to hear more about her experiences with Webs and how our products helped her business succeed.

Example Site Header

Perhaps the weather is perfectly fine wherever you are, but here in the Washington, DC area, it’s cloudy and in the mid-twenties. Which is why today’s Webs user example site will feature a tourism company in the state of Kerala, India, where it’s in the mid-eighties right now.

In addition to beautiful imagery and a nice-looking layout, the Swapna Kerala Holidays website succeeds at one of the most important things for a business in the travel industry: establishing trust. Whether within their own country or to the other side of the world, most people get a little anxious around travel. Which is why it’s so important for a company that serves travelers to convey through their website that customers are in good hands when choosing their services.

Example website

It’s Friday afternoon, which can certainly make you feel like dancing. Which is why we thought a great choice for today’s example site would be www.peterlovatt.com – the online home of Doctor Dance.

Peter Lovatt is a Dance Psychologist in England, where he is a Principle Lecturer in Psychology at the University of Hertfordshire. Lovatt also runs the university’s Dance Psychology Lab, which sounds like a pretty great place to hang out. Perhaps not surprisingly, his website is also a great place to hang out, because it is well-branded, easy to navigate, and full of rich imagery.

Lezzetli ice cream website

Given that we live and breathe small business marketing at Webs, it’s no surprise that seeing our users whip up a great website for an interesting business really makes our day around here. Today’s day-maker? Lezzetli Turkish-Style Ice Cream.

This mom-and-pop-style ice cream company is run by a couple who fell in love with traditional Turkish ice cream while traveling, and decided to bring the tradition back home to New York City.

One thing that shows Lezzetli is serious about their business is their consistent brand. From their web, to their social profiles, to their physical packaging, everything reinforces their energetic and natural style.
