Sesame members get new website builder service

Sesame has launched a website builder service for advisers either launching a website for the first time or those wishing to improve their existing ones.

With a 200 per cent increase in the number of websites being created by adviser firms over the last two years, Sesame says advisers need help with streamlining their compliance approval and record keeping.

Its new service will form part of a marketing toolkit that Sesame is rolling out over the next year.

Sesame says it will offer advisers a comprehensive audit trail to help with future compliance inspections and avoids the need to print off a copy of their entire site to retain as a permanent record.

Sales and marketing director Steve Young says: “The ability to tailor websites using this service symbolises how advisers will seek to run their businesses in the future. Advisers can quickly and easily customise their websites in order to make them personal to their business and clients, whilst ensuring there is robust record keeping in place. Web building is a competitive area and we will be seeking to stay ahead with a host of new features and designs, which will be rolled out over the next year.”
