Ré and Jimdo: serving the online presence of entrepreneurs!


Logo tradefaire SME réussir

Although e-commerce represents an opportunity for French companies – 35.5 million consumers and 16 billion euros spent in 2016* – nearly one in every three SME / SOHO in the country still has no website! (*Source Fevad 2016).

As the support platform for launching an online business created by Afnic in 2014, Ré works with a million of the companies concerned to show them that owning a website and a personalized domain name is :

  • a simple, fast, and inexpensive process
  • an indispensable step for a relevant, controlled online presence
  • an opportunity whatever your business activity in terms of reputation and business development
  • a pledge of credibility and reliability for customers, prospects and partners alike 
  • an even more effective lever when coupled with social networking tools

During the 3 days of the SME Trade Fair, Ré and its partner Jimdo – an editor of simple but effective websites – will be welcoming professional players on their joint stand (B1) to advise them on how to develop their online presence!


“After the success of the online SME Trade Fair in June, we are delighted to take part in its physical version, which allows us to keep closer to entrepreneurs and business starters, and respond better to their questioning. Our support and advisory role is crucial because online presence is a challenge for small and medium-sized French enterprises,” says Mathieu Weill, CEO of Afnic.


“Through our partnership with Afnic, we simplify the transition of French entrepreneurs to the digital economy. Our joint offer allows project owners to have a turnkey solution, including the hosting of their website and domain name under the .fr TLD, with a single invoice. The partnership also provides full support for entrepreneurs in getting their websites on-line aided by Jimdo experts to create the website, and the coaching provided by Ré in choosing a domain name,” adds Justine Perussel, alliance manager for Jimdo France.


A workshop to launch your business on the Internet

Ré and Jimdo will also be hosting the workshop “An easy-to-use checklist to launch your internet activity” to guide entrepreneurs in starting their online business: from content to Internet address and design, Jimdo and Ré will be providing a complete range of great tips to help business starters have a successful website that accurately reflects their image.
