Socialgimme was founded in 2011 and is based out of Amsterdam. The application is overseen by Richard Oerlemans and Sander Voorn, with investments from Jurjen Damste. The application has been featured on sites such as Crunchbase, Feedmyapp and Mediatapper.
Socialgimme forgoes the concept of multi-page websites and instead provides users with a one-page, simple site. The application uses simple templates and an intuitive interface to make building a website quick and easy, though customization is admittedly limited once the user gets beyond specific templates. Socialgimme also rolls most of its features into the free site plan, making it easy for businesses and individuals to get started without an investment.
Websites build by Socialgimme are split into blocks. Each block serves as a content container—in other words, one block on a user’s page can be for a YouTube video, while another block can hold a contact form. Block design makes it easy to fill a site with content and organize it in an attractive way, but limits the flexibility of the overall design. The interface is extremely easy to use—anyone that’s worked with a blog dashboard or CMS will feel comfortable.
Socialgimme registration is similar to most sites—the user must provide a name, email address and password. Additionally, the user must choose a Socialgimme domain name while signing up.
Socialgimme offers two pricing plans: Free and Premium. The free plan contains most of the apps features, but is missing contact forms, banners, analytics and a white label domain. The premium version contains all features and runs $49 per year.
Socialgimme is perfect for anyone that needs a quick web presence but doesn’t have the time or money to build a fully functioning website. With Socialgimme, it’s easy to build an online resume or similar one-page information sheet without having to hire a designer or spend hours integrating a WordPress template.
