So if you're looking to start your own business or simply want to create a personal website, there's no need to spend money on a website builder. With BOWWE, you can have your website up and running quickly. Here is some helpful information on how to get started:
Founding Story of BOWWE
BOWWE was founded in 2014 by Karol Andruszkow and Wojtek Andruszkow, serial entrepreneurs from Poland. Karol and Wojtek have founded 4 startups "with successes and failures that have shaped us" as they say. Karol also spent a lot of time in Silicon Valley - learning from the best and making connections. The founders have a broad, extensive knowledge of launching a startup and how business works. That's why they decided to start a vast, multi-year, complex project as a Website & E-commerce Builder, which they self-funded. But the business idea was born not in 2014 but many years earlier, before 2009.
At that time, Karol and Wojtek worked in large corporations, international financial institutions, and the largest European banks. There they participated in implementing advanced IT projects; worth more than 1,000,000,000 GPD. They worked in many European countries and the United States, all to understand how to design, create, implement and scale products in the global market. When they gained this knowledge, they decided they wanted to invest their money and devote many years of work to creating their solution. So they came up with the idea to create a platform dedicated to micro, small and medium-sized businesses and allow them to grow online. From the first day of living, the company's mission was to give power to people and make it easy for anyone to move any business online without coding or IT knowledge. They started building that platform around 2009-2010. This is how BOWWE was born and appeared on the market in 2014.
Now, the BOWWE team consists of almost 40 people, and they have small offices in Miami and in London, but the majority of BOWWE's team is based in Wroclaw, Poland.
In November of last year, BOWWE was voted the Best Website & Landing Page Builder by the digital marketplace platform AppSumo. They achieved the best overall score (4.95/5.00) among Website Builders from the platform users (entrepreneurs, marketing and development professionals)!
Now they're gaining new users, positive reviews, and feedback from worldwide. Business owners, marketers, and marketing agencies are delighted to use BOWWE. In the previous weeks, one of the users from Appsumo said, "It's easy to use as Wix but powerful as Webflow!". Another feedback is from the founder of a marketing agency that has almost 200 websites on board in Canada. After discovering BOWWE, he reached out to the team and asked for help to move all his websites onto the platform.
As you can see, BOWWE got a hot welcome. Now they are preparing to launch at ProductHunt, scheduled for this October.
In the past years, their customers were mainly from Poland and Eastern Europe. But they have worked very hard over the years to increase their visibility. As a result, the majority of their users right now are from the USA, and Western Europe. However, the platform is getting more popular also in the east countries like India.
BOWWE is also setting CSR goals for itself. In addition to helping businesses move online, they want to support creatives from around the world - like freelancers, web developers, copywriters, graphic designers, UX and UI designers. BOWWE's mission is to provide them with open and equal access to a next-gen tool to allow them develop the key skills of the future, increase their value and help achieve financial independence.
BOWWE is the perfect solution for:
- agencies that want to speed up their work, cut development costs and increase the profit from every single customer,
- businesses that want to get online quickly, easily, and effectively without expensive web development services.
- freelancers and individuals who desire work and financial independence and want to gain future-oriented skills
The platform makes it easy to get started with these simple processes:
- In order to choose between building a Website, Micro Page, Landing Page, CV, or Portfolio, there are a few steps you can take.
First, consider what you want your website to achieve. If you're only looking to create a simple website, a professional template may be your best choice.
If you are getting ready to launch a new product or service, or want to launch a marketing campaign , then a Landing Page will allow you to achieve your goal. This type of page is easy to create and doesn't require much maintenance.
If you want to increase conversions from social media campaigns or need to connect your site to all social channels, create a simple Micro Page. It’s the most convenient alternative to LinkTree available on the market and doesn’t require a lot of maintenance too!
Need to create an online CV or Portfolio? Then BOWWE provides many NoCode options, preedited templates and sections that will allow you to create a professional-looking site and get your dream job or attract any client. All of this without any coding knowledge.
- BOWWE makes sure your future clients will find your site in search engines and start visiting it. Builder generates stellar code (comparable to code created by a programmer with 2 years of experience) which positively affects all the results achieved by the site. There’re also Rocket SEO features to allow you rank higher and faster!
- Do you create websites on a daily basis and need a simple builder? BOWWE is the perfect balance between convenience and power! You can install and personalize your favorite apps and widgets to make the transition to your new site seamless. Duplicate single elements and entire pages with the copy function, or even write out custom code to get technical if you like.
- “One-click publish” feature lets you post any content on your website and promote it on multiple social media platforms such as Google, Facebook, Twitter, and more. Notably, BOWWE is constantly working to add more channels.
- To make sure your website is trustworthy, BOWWE provides powerful business featues like “Customer Reviews'' app. This is an internal feature, built-in the Creator, so you don’t need to install third-party plugins, which slow down your site. Not enough? Give clients an extra push with another internal app “Coupons''. And all of these with a single click!
- Congratulations, with all these steps you have gained your customer’s loyalty! With the help of the tool Honaro (integrated with BOWWE) it allows your website to sell for you and increase the number of your clients.
You can create different types of websites such as CV or portfolio, landing pages, MicroPages, which are very small and efficient websites designed for social media. It’s an alternative to LinkTree, but BOWWE offers some bigger possibilities when it comes to design customization, and other and index pages. It’s a great feature for optimization for growth and social media campaigns.
BOWWE provides an important feature with Search Engine Optimization (SEO) optimized templates. It’s an important feature because it allows crawlers to find out what the website is. When the pages are scanned it looks for context between elements. With WordPress and Wix, you can build with absolute mode as you build without connection between elements.
That's why it's so easy to build and publish websites in Wix but BOWWE’s mission is not to create like that because the team wants to create according to programming rules, which gives the users a hard time to understand. It gives much bigger possibilities to grow, understanding of how programming works and provides an understanding of how search engines work. The main goal is for the platform to let you grow much more efficiently. They want their users to deliver high quality code and high quality websites, but 10 times faster, and of course, no coding skills needed. BOWWE gives you a choice: you can build with absolute and relative mode, and the second one incredibly affects the quality of your site's code and the results you achieve!
Since its launch, BOWWE has helped thousands of businesses build websites and web apps without the need for coding skills. The company's drag-and-drop platform makes it easy for anyone to create a professional-looking website or app in minutes.
The team is currently working on finalizing the details of the feature, but they've already given us a sneak peek of what's to come. With this new e-commerce feature, they're working hard to make it even easier for people to create and launch online stores. As the team finalizes the details of this feature, you can learn more about BOWWE through reading their blogs or by booking a demo call and Martyna (catch her via LinkedIn or Twitter) can navigate you on the platform and see how their platform works.

What’s a Rich Text element?
The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
Static and dynamic content editing
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
How to customize formatting for each rich text
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
