There are so many website builders on the
market that finding the ideal one for your needs can be overwhelming. But it doesn’t
have to be. In this review, we’ll take an indepth look at Weebly, one of the best website
builders on the market. Let’s get started! The great thing about Weebly is that you can
create a professional looking website for free. Every Weebly site comes with a free
domain. As you can see here. You can also register your own domain through Weebly in
a matter of seconds. What we love most about Weebly is that you
can create an impressive site with unlimited pages for free. This is ideal for beginners.
For those looking to go beyond the basics, there’s a selection of premium plans. These
include no Weebly ads, the option to connect your domain, comprehensive site stats and
many other exciting features. Weebly is one of the most reliable and robust
website builders around. As you can see, Weebly offers a selection of over 100 quality templates
which can easily be customized. All templates are optimized for mobile and are easy to use. To show you just how easy it is to create
with Weebly, we thought we’d start off by creating a basic website. Now that we’ve
picked our template, it’ part. Let’s get editing. At first glance the drag-and-drop editor seems
a bit overwhelming. But what we like about it is that it gives you a clutter free canvas
to create as you see fit. All you need to do is drag and drop different elements from
here. These include everything from text and image boxes, to social icons and e-commerce
features. We thought we’d start by editing the text.
Did you see how easy that was. Now let’s add a text paragraph. See how simple it is!
What this page needs is a few images. You can either upload an image from your computer
or search Weebly’s database of free and paid stock images. Let’s choose this one.
Doesn’t that look great! Now let’s move onto the design. By clicking
the ‘design’ tab, you’ll have the option to change your template’s color, font and
background images. There’s even the option to choose a new template. We love how easy
this is to use! All it takes is a few clicks, and you can completely change the look of
your website. Another handy thing about Weebly’s design editor is that changes can either be
saved to all pages, or just to the page you’re working on. Here you can add new pages by simply clicking
this button. You can also change the name and structure of existing pages. Weebly really
is that simple and hassle-free to use. For those looking to set up an online store,
click this button. Here you can add your products, design your storefront and can even experiment
with more advanced options like adding coupons. And just like that you have an impressive
looking online store! In addition to all major credit cards, your
online Weebly store will be able to accept Stripe, Square, Authorize.net and PayPal.
Keep in mind that Weebly does charge a small transaction fee for these services. When it comes to SEO, Weebly has you covered.
Under ‘Setting’ you can optimize your page by adding a site description, meta keywords
as well as a header and footer code. You can also customize the SEO setting for each page
by clicking ‘Advanced Settings’ in page view. Weebly provides a separate editor for mobile
and desktop. This makes it easy to ensure your website always looks good on mobile.
The interesting thing about Weebly is that you can create a mobile website with its own
unique theme and content. We also liked the fact that there’s an option to preview the
website on both iPhone and Android. While Weebly does offer customer support,
it isn’t as comprehensive as some of the other website builders on the market. They
offer this support section with a combination of the most commonly asked questions and training
videos. We found this beginners guide to be particularly helpful. There is also an option
to submit a request. Weebly is pretty good about getting back to customers, and you should
receive a response in a few hours. Overall, we found the support for the free
plan to be somewhat lacking. After all only premium plans offer email, phone and chat
support. Weebly is one of the most intuitive and reliable
website builders around. We were particularly impressed with the ease of use of the drag-and-drop
editor and highly recommend this service for beginners.
Here are the main pros: User-friendly and intuitive
Many free features Very affordable But there are also a few cons:
Custom domain is not included Intrusive ads with free version
Still need some help making up your mind about Weebly? Well – take a look at this. THIS is
what we were able to create in 5 minutes flat using the platform. Now what do you think?
