The addition of Stackbit to the Netlify platform gives Netlify customers the tools they need to quickly update web copy and content, make edits, localize content, and execute faster. Marketers and other business users are now equipped to seamlessly deliver innovative and agile marketing campaigns to all website visitors and app users worldwide faster.
