We believe that making a website today is much harder than it needs to be.
Getting one built is a hard choice between learning to do it yourself with a complex online tool, modifying a template to try and suit your needs, or paying lots of money to a web designer or agency. Then there is the considerable challenge of learning how to manage, market and monetize it.
It is a challenge that puts the majority of people off entirely; according to recent surveys by Google/Ipsos and Redshift/GoDaddy, more than half of small businesses have no website, while many others are left with websites that have not been updated for years. In a world where consumers are increasingly expecting businesses to have websites (in a recent survey of U.S. consumers, 92% said they preferred to find information on a business's website rather than other sources such as social media), this is a huge problem.
Firedrop aims to solve this problem, using artificial intelligence and a smart chatbot interface to radically simplify the process of building, managing and marketing a website. Our aim is to be the easiest, fastest and most value-focused website builder ever made.
