The idea of building 100, 1,000 or 10,000 sites (whether that's corporate sites, store sites, local sites, local portals, profile pages, regional sites) - seems daunting.
Multi site creation is easier than you think. Here 3 ways to think about building multiple websites:
Time to complete (1 day - 1 week) - Master Template “theme”
Using your creative agency side have the team build 1 solid template or theme that can be expanded upon or reduced depending on the use.
Time to complete (hours) - Cloning
Using the client’s own digital assets, ingest into DevHub and simply ‘clone it’ content included or not. Any macros that you’ve used in content SEO tags..etc; are then shown on the new site.
Time to complete (1 - 2 hours) - API Driven
Use the DevHub API to fully automate the creation and management of sites and landing pages without even entering the site builder or dashboard.
BONUS: TRACE - use DevHub’s proprietary technology to rapidly build and manage sites/ pages leveraging corporate brand requirements. TRACE copies the existing site.
Automated - changes to corporate styles reflected dynamically on all location pages.
Analytics - SEO, session tracking, and traffic interaction data embedded on every page.
