TORONTO, Jan. 10, 2022 /CNW/ – GoDaddy Inc. (NYSE: GDDY), the company that empowers everyday entrepreneurs, launched the second phase of its marketing campaign that highlights the unstoppable spirit of small business owners. The new campaign features three new Canadian small business owners who have overcome obstacles in their competitive industries, and aims to inspire other entrepreneurs with the tagline ‘Don’t Stop Being Unstoppable’.
Part two of the ‘Don’t Stop Being Unstoppable’ campaign features Canada’s fastest man and six-time Olympic medalist Andre De Grasse. Like professional athletes, small business owners have demonstrated dedication and perseverance through the many obstacles thrown their way – and many of them are unfortunately bracing themselves through a new season of the COVID-19 pandemic. With new public health measures and more lockdowns across parts of the country, small businesses who have struggled to stay afloat over the last two years continue to be impacted. Their perseverance comes with empowerment of online solutions whether through an online store, appointment bookings, marketing tools or simply the ability to communicate regularly with their customers.
“This campaign is an empowering tribute to the small businesses that make up our communities across Canada and the entrepreneurs that GoDaddy is honoured to support across the country,” said Anne De Aragon, Vice President and Country Manager of GoDaddy Canada. “The move to digitization by small businesses has helped them stay active and connected with their customers during these challenging times. At GoDaddy we’re proud to support Canadian small business owners and entrepreneurs by offering easy and affordable ecommerce solutions, along with customer care guidance to help them continue to adapt and strengthen their presence online.”
Meet More Unstoppable Small Business Owners
“Early on in the pandemic, Canadians were a bit wary of going to the dentist, but as we focused our efforts on expanded safety measures, we were able to communicate these procedures to our patients on our GoDaddy site, assuring them that our office was safe,” said Dr. Dev Vohra a dentist in Burlington, Ontario. “Today, our operations function hand-in-hand with our GoDaddy website, which has improved efficiency for sharing information with patients, booking appointments and completing COVID-19 screening forms.”
“My business could not have survived the last two years without my GoDaddy website,” said Jasmine Branderhorst, founder of Toronto-based design and home goods store The Underline. “My website has kept the business alive through everchanging public health measures and a major shift in shopping habits across the country. Online shopping has never been more important and I’m grateful that GoDaddy has helped to make my ecommerce website so easy to build and operate, serving customers here in the Toronto area and across Canada.”
“Canadians have never stopped craving pizza and it’s been an honour to feed our communities in Brampton, North York and Etobicoke over the last two years,” said Harpreet Banwait of Pizza Hub. “The pizza market got pretty competitive during the pandemic, so having a website with easy-to-use tools and powerful SEO capabilities has been super important to keeping us on page-one search results.”
