Jimdo Turns 7

Today is Jimdo’s 7th birthday! Our teams have been celebrating all over the world in our various offices: Hamburg, Shanghai, Tokyo, and San Francisco. This ever-growing team of 170, which has doubled in the past 18 months, has helped our users create more than 10 million websites. Our mobile app, launched in August 2013, was named one of Apple’s Best of 2013. We’re actively working to make the Jimdo experience even better, and we’re fully committed to helping you share your passion, build your business, and do great things.

Jimdo Turns 7

Jimdo is different

We’re excited for so many reasons on this day. For one, we have managed to grow our company organically rather than accepting large outside investments. We’ve been able to focus on our product and our customers, instead of a financial windfall or a quick exit. We have grown to become an international company by building on our own success, which ultimately means that we grow when you are successful. When we help you accomplish your goals online, we know that we’re making the right product.

We also don’t spend exorbitant amounts of money on advertising—we think that’s an unsustainable way of doing business. Instead, we work to continuously improve our product and offer incredible customer support in 12 languages. We work every day to support our customers, and every day new customers join Jimdo because they’ve heard about the kind of company we are.

Our focus is strong

Our three founders—Christian, Fridtjof, and Matthias—have truly built an incredible organization. We have a diverse team with a passionate focus on culture and community. This passion for each other translates to our product. Last year we grew the size of our development teams so that we could release an incredible mobile app. This year we’re using our development resources to improve the core Jimdo experience and further expand our mobile platform.

We appreciate your support

The only thing we are more passionate about than our culture and our product is you. Our customers. Our advocates. Meeting you in person, hearing the passion in your voice, reading your stories online, and seeing all of your awesome Jimdo websites drives us to be the best we can be. Your success and your happiness is our best marketing.

Thank you from all of us here at Jimdo. We truly appreciate your support. We hope you’re happy with our product releases this coming year, because we’re incredibly proud of what we’re working on. As always, we welcome your feedback; everything we’re building is for you.

      Five years with Jimdo. We only had 1 million (vs. our current 10 million) users back then. Thank you for your continued support. We look forward to providing even more value to you and your mission in the five years to come.

  3. Your site builder is still the easiest and most intuitive to use of all those I’ve tried. I only hope some day you will have phone support.

      Glad to hear that you feel we’re doing it right with the product development.

      As for support, we provide email and live chat for all of our users—Free, Pro and Business. It would be very difficult to separate phone support for just paid subscribers, and unsustainable to do so for all users. So, never say never, but it’s not on our near or intermediate term horizon at this time.

      “Looking forward to the next 7 with Jimdo”. That sounds like me. Click on my name (next to my picture), which is a link to my personal blog to see what I’m talking about.

      We are, by the way, extremely proud of our product, our company, our culture, and most of all our users. Keeping doing great things!

      You hit the nail on the head. Jimdo is not about helping our users build great websites. We’re about helping our users do great things.

      Great product—for great people—doing great things.

      100%. Wow, can it get better than that? With you two, absolutely yes!

      1,000% time more importantly, as I said to Tim Shaw, Jimdo is not here to deliver a product—we’re here to help users do great things. As a father of four daughters, your efforts to stop Youth Bullying really hit home with me. I have Liked you on Facebook, and shared your message and home page with my Twitter followers. I’ll make sure we do the same from our Jimdo accounts.

      To think that you two are 13 and 10 just blows me away. You are perfect examples of why I’ve never been happier at a job in my life. Thank you so much.

  13. Herzlichen Glueckwunsch zu 7 Jahre jimdo. Ich bin erst seit ein paar Monaten ein Kunde. Meine Tochter hat eine Web Seite mit Ihnen und ist auch sehr begeistert. Werde versuchen den 5 item shop dazu zu fuegen. Ware schoen, wenn ich mehr items umsonst haben koennte. Alles Andere ist fuer mich einfach zu teuer. Ansonsten finde ich jimdo klasse.

  17. Last year at this time, I knew nothing about building a website. “Can’t code, no problem.” Thanks to Jimdo, I created a website and a blog! JImdo helped me shorten my learning curve. Happy Birthday to you!

  18. I researched lots of website builders, always looking at reviews. Jimdo is the only website builder/hosting service that I could not find one critical review. It has been a pleasantly rewarding and satisfying experience being able to build my own website my own way. I have had plenty of feedback about how good it looks. Thanks guys, keep up the good work.

    • Great to hear, but make no mistake, our goal is to get even better all the time. Lots of exciting things to come still— 7 years was just the beginning!

  19. For a long period of time I had a health issue which forced me out of my office job at a big bank. I just wasn’t capable of working which was very stressing. So I decided I had to work and sell something from home instead, and wanted to build a website to do that. But I had not coding knowledge

    I looked at all the options, and decided to choose Jimdo because it got good reviews and had an ecommerce platform which most others didn’t. It’s been 1 year now. It’s been hard work, but really satisfying.

    Thanks Jimdo, keep up the great work. And thanks ceo Stephen for your personal touch, it means a lot to hear from you.

    Your 7th b’day is my websites 1st, so Happy B’day to us and long live all Jimdo websites!

    • Thank you Mario! Hope to celebrate many more with you. Also great to hear that building your site has been a satisfying experience.

      Keep an eye on the blog and hopefully you’ll find more and more info that will help make that feeling get even better as you learn more great tips for improving your site and finding even greater success.

  21. Congratulations and best of luck going forward. I’ve built sites for several companies on Jimdo as it allows me to setup the site and then allow them to easily manage it going forward. Your customer service has always been very responsive and helpful.

    • Thanks Paul – isn’t that the best? I’ve been moving my personal clients over to Jimdo from sites that I custom built for them years ago. I love not having to be responsible for making every update for them any more, and they all feel more empowered by being able to make a change whenever they want knowing that they can’t “break” their website. Everyone is a winner!
