CMS for microsites

If you're looking to create targeted, personalized campaigns or launch new capabilities outside of your main website, branded microsites can deliver all the customization you need to deliver on campaign goals.

But forget reinventing the wheel every time one campaign ends and the next launches. Manage everything from a single CMS instance to ensure brand consistency and close collaboration. At the same time, rapidly launch unique, impactful digital experiences that speak to each of your respective campaign's objectives.

Launch fast and get results for your microsite campaigns

Microsites are powerful tools that allow marketers to launch a new product or promotion, reach a new audience or raise awareness in a specific, targeted way that traditional marketing with a full website cannot. Here are just a few of the hundreds of amazing microsites created by Brightspot customers over the years.
As part of a high-profile campaign during the 2020 Tokyo Olympics—and featuring on NBC News and in The Wall Street Journal—Mattress Firm redesigned and launched the microsite for "Unjunk Your Sleep" in just 10 business days with Brightspot.
The Discover the Forest campaign is a partnership between the Ad Council and the U.S. Forest Service. The microsite encourages families to explore nature by connecting visitors to parks and forests in their area, along with outdoor activity suggestions and relevant resources.
This microsite is a section published on that's dedicated to the pioneering vision of the Special Olympics' founder. Presenting facts and resources, it's also a place for media and journalists to explore more resources to tell the movement's story.
One of the first and most successful microsites we’ve built with Brightspot tools was the one we built in honor of our founder, Eunice Kennedy Shriver ... Having this important microsite within gave it great discoverability. Even in the short time that we've been integrated, we’ve seen traffic to it go up about 61% in the past year.
