What's New in Websites + Marketing?

We’re excited to keep getting better all the time. Check in here or in the Community once a month or so to learn all of the newest features in the last few months.

Website Editor

Change your photo's shape (March 2021) You now have options anytime you add or replace a photo or edit a photo in a section (other than a photo gallery section). Look for the shapes above your photo when you edit or change your image. Make your image horizontal (landscape), vertical (portrait) or a circle.

Diverse stock photos better represent your customers (March 2021 and November 2020) Now you can choose from 900+ new diverse images representing people from all backgrounds, ages, abilities, and more. Anytime you’re in your website editor and editing a photo, select Change image. Use the search bar to look for stock photos, and you’ll see more representation in your search results. Or search the word TONL to see the entire collection

Edit images in your Media Library (February 2021) Easily add overlays, text, shapes and more to your images right in your Media Library. From your Dashboard, select My Photos. Hover over any image (your image or a stock image) and select the pencil Edit icon. Then you can edit your photos right in Content Creator (just like when you create a social media or website image).

Add videos as a layer in an image (January 2021) New to creating a social media or website image in the Content Creator is the ability to add a video as one of your image layers. Videos you upload are in your Websites + Marketing account as part of GoDaddy’s partnership with Vimeo.

Choose different header styles (December 2020) Too many different styles look chaotic, but not enough variety is bland. In the middle is the sweet spot where you have some different choices but not too much. In your website editor, highlight a section’s header or sub-header text. Use the menu that appears to change styles or adjust the font size.

Link text and buttons to email and phone numbers (November 2020) We know that mobile visitors account for about 65% of a website’s traffic. Now you can modify text or button options so they link to email or phone numbers. That’ll make it easier for your customers to call you or send you mail.

Upload videos directly to your site (October 2020) You can now upload your own videos directly to your site thanks to a partnership between GoDaddy and Vimeo. (Here are some FAQs if you’re curious). Add videos to your header (Vimeo only) or add a video to a site section (Vimeo or YouTube). After three videos, we’ll ask you to connect your GoDaddy account to Vimeo. Once you connect, you’ll be able to upload up to 10 videos per day, up to 500 MB per week, up to a total of 5 GB, whichever comes first. You can also edit or configure your video player settings.

View and manage pages more easily (October 2020) When you enter the website editor, now you manage pages on the right while you manage sections in the page itself. Previously, it took a few steps to be able to manage pages; we’ve heard from customers this way is much easier. Check out how to add a page or drop-down menu, reorder pages or duplicate a page.

Add images to your pop-up boxes (October 2020) Pop-up boxes catch people’s attention, and pop-up boxes with images catch even more attention. Now when you add a pop-up box to your website, you can add an image to the pop-up box as well.

Customize the look and feel of your buttons (October 2020) One of the new ways you can customize your site is by changing the look and feel of your buttons. Change your button to have sharp or rounded corners or be an oval. Let it be outlined or filled in with the best contrasting color (white, black, or your theme color).

Online store and Marketplaces

Change payment and fulfillment statuses separately (March 2021) Usually a customer places an order, pays for it, and then the order is fulfilled, in that order. But life is messy and doesn’t always work the way it should. Now you can change the fulfillment status separate from the payment status, reflecting the way life happens in your store.

Manage your orders better on mobile (March 2021) Open your site in the GoDaddy app on iPhone or Android. Use the four squares in the upper right corner to open your Store. The Orders section has a whole new look and feel specifically for mobile, which makes your orders easier to view and manage.

Out of stock label (February 2021) In response to your feedback and suggestions, we’ve added the “Out of stock” label to your store in the Product Gallery (where customers see all your products) in addition to the individual product level. Now your customers know before they click if an item is available or not – which helps them trust you more as a merchant.

New ways to sort and filter your orders (January 2021) To make your life simpler, we’ve added a column that gives you the order status (to more easily sort out unfulfilled orders) and delivery method (shipping, local delivery, local pickup, Marketplaces, etc.). From your Dashboard, go to Store > Orders to see the changes.

Add a free shipping coupon option to your online store (December 2020) If you sell products in your online store that need shipping, why not reward your customers who order a large purchase? Create a coupon that gives them free shipping.

Share your online store products in a social media post (December 2020) and Shoppable posts for Facebook and Instagram (September 2020) When you create a post, you now have the option to add one of your store products to your post. Unlike shoppable Facebook posts or shoppable Instagram posts, this new feature doesn’t require any connection through Marketplaces. You’re creating a regular social post with a link to your store.

Show customers similar products in the same category (November 2020) When people come to your online store to look at a product you shared, why not show them other similar products they may be interested in? Open your website editor and select your Online Store section. Select Product Page and then check the toggle for Show similar products in the same category is turned on.

Select different column options in your online store (November 2020) Now you have the ability to showcase your products in two, three or four columns in a Desktop layout, and one or two columns in a mobile layout. Open your website editor and select your Online Store section. In the editor on the right, the Product Gallery has a few different customizations. Select Layout Options. Choose the number of columns from the drop-down menu and watch the Desktop version automatically adjust. Use the Preview button to see how the mobile and desktop version look together.

Appointments

Add multiple appointments to the cart (March 2021) We’re pleased to announce this highly-requested feature. Before now, your customers could not book multiple services in one checkout. Now, they can! No action necessary on your part (except making sure you have an online appointments section on your site), but your customers will see the difference when they check out on your site.

Share your services on social (February 2021) In the last few months, we’ve added the ability to attach products to social posts and now you can share services in social posts as well. The easiest way is to start from your list of services. From your Dashboard, go to Appointments > Services. Select three horizontal dots icon and choose Social Share. Continue creating your post with text and images then publish or schedule for later.

Social Marketing

Post directly to Instagram! (March 2021) When you create a post, Instagram is now an option to post in addition to Facebook and Twitter. We are so excited, and we hope you are too.

Share your online store products in a social media post (December 2020) and Shoppable posts for Facebook and Instagram (September 2020) When you create a post, you now have the option to add one of your store products to your post. Unlike shoppable Facebook posts or shoppable Instagram posts, this new feature doesn’t require any connection through Marketplaces. You’re creating a regular social post with a link to your store.
