GoDaddy buys content creation app Over, plans to integrate features into its product suite
Small businesses use Over to easily create digital content.
GoDaddy announced on Wednesday it had acquired Over, a mobile app designed for SMBs and entrepreneurs that allows them to quickly create content for social media platforms, email and websites. The app’s capabilities will be integrated into GoDaddy’s Website + Marketing platform in the near future, according to a company spokesperson.
The app will also continue to offered as a standalone app, available via Apple’s App Store and Google Play, and the team will continue to develop new features for it.
Why we care
The Over app has gained popularity as an easy-to-use content creation tool — it has more than a million monthly active users with 220,000 projects created daily by SMBs. GoDaddy’s move to integrate the app’s features into the Website + Marketing product suite will expand GoDaddy’s capabilities. Depending on how GoDaddy integrates Over’s tech into its platform, “non-designers” most likely will be able to create content that can be used on their GoDaddy-built website, as well as their company’s social pages and in their email marketing efforts.
