While still maintaining the benefits available in all of our other web design solutions, which include:
  1. A fully customized template unique to your brand that enables you to effectively promote and communicate your brand message and designed with your online user experience(s) in mind;
  2. A mobile responsive design whereby the layout and content of your website dynamically adjusts to fit any screen size; and
  3. A search engine optimized website.
Furthermore, Essentials Lite is intended for businesses and nonprofits with basic requirements with regards to multimedia content, functionality, interactivity, and features.
Starting this November, start-up businesses and non-profits will be eligible to apply for Essentials Lite following our announcement on October 8, 2018 to permanently move the web design solution out of our Transform My Business Programme.
