WebKite Everywhere!

Since we launched WebKite for WordPress, we’ve had thousands of downloads and people using WebKite to build restaurant menus, business directories with Google Maps integration and publishing in a way that wasn’t possible before. All for free.

WebKite for WordPress went live in April. Now we’ve made WebKite lists embeddable anywhere you can put a YouTube video. It’s a huge step for anyone publishing information online.

Within minutes you can build out a list, grab a JavaScript code, and embed it on your website. It’s a process we’ve streamlined so you can publish interactive content without breaking a sweat. Sign up for free and try it out yourself.

 

Start Building with WebKite

WebKite For All

What’s amazing about WebKite is that anyone can publish filterable and sortable content without the need to hire a designer or open their wallet. The alternatives before WebKite were complicated and expensive. We’ve built a product where you—yes you—can build out a filterable list.

Now the art & culture coordinator, who’s tasked with building a directory of restaurants for their community, can succeed. And the Real Estate association can list their affiliate members.

Even the restaurant owner who’s juggling everything (and doesn’t have time to manage a website) can update their ever-changing menu by editing a Google Spreadsheet on their phone—those changes then go live on their menu.

Our goal was to build technology for anyone to use. Anyone and anywhere.

But not everyone uses WordPress and even more people aren’t comfortable with configuring WordPress plugins. And for those people—the entrepreneurs, the business owners, the person with that awesome idea—they can now use WebKite.

WebKite Everywhere!

We’ve moved beyond the WordPress plugin so now you can embed WebKite anywhere you can embed a YouTube video.

Moving beyond the WordPress environment means that you’re able to add filterable and sortable content wherever you’re building a website (SquareSpace or Wix for example). And adding WebKite functionality to your website can win over your community.

The web is shifting to be more interactive and personalized. Imagine building a website that can cater to anyone’s needs. A restaurant menu that can show someone with celiac disease the gluten free items. Or the service list that shows only the services relevant to a particular user. When you present your user with the functionality to sort and filter through your content, you’re giving them the tools to quickly make an informed decision.

SquareSpace, Wix, Weebly, and WordPress exist because there’s a need to build a presence online. We admire what those platforms have done for small and medium sized businesses everywhere. These sites have introduced an element of competition and ease that would otherwise be missing from the web. This is a web where anyone can build and create.

We’re happy to make WebKite more accessible than ever. Now you can build and embed filterable and sortable content anywhere.

If you build or publish any sort of content, you’re going to want to keep an eye on WebKite. Now is a great time to sign up for the WebKite newsletter (in that box to your right) if you haven’t already.

Inventory-based advertising is a better way to advertise

Since we're generating specific ads based on a business' inventory, ads are only shown to customers that are ready to buy those products.

This mitigates waste and ensures that you only get clicks that have a better chance of leading to a sale. Inventory-based ads help you skip past the bartering and get right to the sale. Meaning you can spend less time maintaining ads and more time taking care of your business.
