bOnline is much more than just a top quality website builder. It is more of an integrated and comprehensive online marketing service which will prove invaluable for business owners, both technical novices and veteran techies alike. It has a strong focus on professionally helping with set-up, so you don't have to worry about doing it yourself. This adds a huge amount of value to this builder!
Users have the option of taking the lead and using simple tools to design their own site or utilising the skills of bOline’s in-house design team. Either way, sites can be edited and further developed with ease. Depending on the package, customised SEO tools and social media links are part and parcel of the service, making bOnline an all round attractive option.

One of the hallmarks of bOnline is its flexibility. Users can choose to personally design their own site or leave it in the hands of a personable and very professional designer. Those who do decide to take the reins and design the site themselves will find hundreds of templates to choose from. The options are tailored by industry, making it easier for you to select the right design for your particular business. The DIY website builder then makes it very simple to customize fonts, images, style and text at the click of a button. It is possible to make unlimited changes and to add as many pages as you wish.
Alternatively, bOnline’s professional in-house design team can take care of customizing the entire design process. They are on the end of a phone to consult and drive the design forward until you are happy that you have exactly what you want.
There is plenty in addition to the website design itself. In fact, bOnline provides a whole suite of online marketing tools. Again, the key is flexibility. Users can choose to use the bOnline SEO wizard to develop their own presence or alternatively a dedicated SEO advisor can manage the process instead. Social media is also integrated into the service, making your site as visible as possible.
For businesses that are selling online, there is the option of an advanced E-Commerce platform, which is able to make safe and secure sales and easily take bookings. Whatever the purpose of your site, bOnline helps you to monitor its progress with ease. The easy to use dashboard provides a simple overview while more advanced Google Analytics tracking services can also be accessed.
The most basic package at £8.95 per month allows users to create a professional website and to make unlimited edits and changes, but that’s it. The Business Plus option is a slightly more advanced category of service and for £14.95 each month, you can boost your web presence with a range of SEO tools.
The most popular package at bOnline is the Managed SEO option. Instead of personally managing the site’s SEO presence, users can instead allow bOnline to handle the entire process for £29.95 each month. Finally, the most comprehensive package of all, the Traffic Builder does what it says and actively pursues more hits, visits, traffic and ultimately customers and clients. Traffic Builder costs £95.00 each month. It is important to note that web hosting and domain is included in every package.
On the pricing page, bOnline includes a useful FAQs section which should answer most basic queries. However, for users requiring a bit more information, there is a well-advertised hotline which is operational from 9am until 6pm on weekdays. For those looking for a quick and direct response though, there is a live chat facility which automatically appears on every page.
