New Ecwid Starter Site: A Great Look For Your Online Store From Day One

Online presence is crucial in today’s business environment. Every company needs a home on the web – no matter how large or small your business may be. Your website is a great place to share your business story — with the potential to reach millions of people! When your website helps people get to know you, it builds trust in your business and begins to build a relationship that encourages them to buy your stuff.

When it’s about selling online, Ecwid’s got you covered. Your Ecwid store can be added to any website, no matter how or when it was built. If you don’t have a website yet, there is a unique feature in Ecwid —  a Starter Site — that was created so that you have a home on the Internet to sell your goods. Now, it’s also a place where you can tell your story. We’ve made it easy to personalize for your brand and it’s fully hosted, secure, and maintained by Ecwid.

The really great news is that we’ve completely refreshed the look and added powerful communication features. Now it’s not just a place for your storefront: the Starter Site can be expanded into a beautiful one-page website that will tell your story, impress customers with a great first impression, and get them involved with your brand.

The new Starter Site has everything you need to take your first step to create a successful online presence:

What’s the New Starter Site All About?

Now, the Starter Site is your place on the net to create a professional look and demonstrate all the strong points of your business. It allows you to present your business to customers from the best angle using easily editable content blocks and selected images. Our intention is to help you make a great first impression with your customers from the moment they land on your site. Helping you share your unique story and breathing life and personality into your online store.

You can use all of the blocks provided, or pick and choose the ones that work for you and hide the rest:

If a block contains no information, it will not be shown to your visitors. Hide any block whenever you like — for example, if you don’t have a brick-and-mortar store, you may not need the Location block.

How to create and edit your Starter Site

Starter Site is enabled for all new Ecwid users. If you signed up for Ecwid earlier, enable the Content-rich Starter Site feature in Settings → What’s New:
