Why I use Rocketspark for websites

​A complete New Zealand made website solution

After extensive research along with much trial and error New Zealand based Rocketspark are my preferred platform for developing websites.

Most businesses need a website these days and Rocketspark’s platform make it easy for the designer, client and end-user. Rocketspark is an easy to use website builder combined with hosting and great support enabling beautifully simple websites to be created. The website builder has fantastic functionality and features that are constantly being improved and upgraded.  

Once we have finished designing your Rocketspark website you are given access to their easy-to-use website builder and have control of your own website. We show you how to make your own edits and updates. You have access to online help files, online chat and an 0800 number for ongoing New Zealand based support from the friendly Rocketspark development team as well as having us available to assist. Of course, if you don’t want to make your own website edits, we can help with that too.

The Rocketspark website builder is packed with great design functionality and features. One of the things I love about Rocketspark is that they are always improving the platform to take advantage of new technology and trends. These improvements and upgrades are based on customer feedback and requests from design partners such as us.

A Rocketspark website is fully responsive and optimized for all screen sizes, so it will look great on a tablet, mobile phone, desktop and any other screen size it is viewed on. Most upgrades are automatic and included in your monthly hosting, so your website's backend will always be up-to-date and stable.

Also included in the Rocketspark monthly hosting cost are:

  • Automatic back-ups of your website
  • A link to your google analytics so you can see visitor numbers at a glance
  • SEO tools to help you get found by search engines such as Google
  • Local hosting, which is preferred by Google search engines
  • A current SSL certificate to show your site is secure and safe
  • Unlimited storage and bandwidth
  • Security updates
  • Smooth integrations with Xero, Vend, Trade Gecko, Stripe, Timely and many others

On a personal level I love supporting a New Zealand grown enterprise who are taking on the big names in web design. They were founded in 2009 and really understand the challenges small businesses face. I find them very good at finding solutions and work-arounds to solve tricky challenges, where others just say no we can't do that.

As a website designer who is passionate that the sites we design look great and function well I made the decision to become a Rocketspark Design Partner so we could offer clients a reliable, well supported and beautifully simple solution. I am excited to say that we have met the criteria and are now a Silver Design Partner.
