Well-Done, Beautiful Free Templates

Selection – Weebly has a really nice selection of templates and they look fantastic.  They’re organized into categories that are kinda random, but every theme is chock-full-of lovely, so it’s no big deal.

Customization – Tons of it.  You can tweak most aspects of the template and if you really want to go crazy, you can code your template from scratch.  And if you know what you’re doing, use the advanced editor an muck around with CSS and HTML with ease.

Multimedia – All the features you’d expect: photo gallery, YouTube, audio…you can edit photos straight from Weebly which is nice and convenient, especially if PhotoShop crashes your computer all the time…(Yes, I am referring to myself).

Find Out What Weebly Can Do For You

Feature
Description

Social Media Integration
Weebly’s biggest weakness is the lack of tools to integrate with social media platforms, there isn’t an easy plug-in like other builders.

Widgets
Online polls, Google Maps, forums…Weebly has plenty of add-ons to improve your site, with the option to bring in whatever external widget you fancy.

SEO Friendly
Very much so. Tags are all customizable at page level, so are alt texts. Weebly sites don’t have to worry about being SEO-screwed by their provider.

E-commerce/Online Store
The online store is OK, there are only 2 payment options (PayPal and Google Checkout) and you can only do basic things with it.

Mobile
Weebly will do it automatically for you, by converting your page to a smart-phone friendly one.

Monetization
Google AdSense + Banners. BUT Weebly takes a cut. A big one. 50% to be exact.

Visitor Statistics
Weebly has their own traffic tracker which works well, or you can use Google Analytics.

Custom Domain/E-mail
With paid packages. You can get tons of emails and even your own subdomain.

Blogging Platform
Weebly has a great one, making it easy to use content marketing & other blogging ideas.

Embedded Documents
You can take external documents in different file formats and display it as you like on your web pages. Cool.

Weebly Presents: A Stress Free Website Creation

I know I already mentioned this, but working with Weebly is just obscenely easy.   All your options are laid out nice and clean on a menu up top, and you just drag and drop everything on your page. No other site builder (in my humble opinion) has such a phenomenally well-organized interface.  Really, somebody should give Weebly a pat on the back. Or a hug.  Because they got it right.

Let Weebly Help You With Your New Website

  • E-mail Support
  • Phone Support
  • Live Chat
  • Forum
  • Help Articles
  • Video Tutorials
  • Blog

 

The Weebly support team answers emails quickly and competently. Plus, they offer live training sessions (and recordings of previous live training sessions) which are super handy.  The blog is not updated frequently however and is more sparse than other builder’s blogs. Overall though, the support is quite good.

Summary


PRO’S

CON’S

  • Easy to use
  • Great Templates
  • Mobile Friendly
  • Replicate your websites at no costs
  • Visitor Statistics
  • Multiple dashboards
  • Domain based e-mail
  • Monetization
  • Manage up to 10 sites
  • Poor Social Media Integration
  • Best for simple e-commerce sites
  • Only two payment options are available for E-commerce

I know it’s not nice to play favorites, but Weebly hit a soft spot with me. Designing my page was fun, easy, and sneakily powerful. The only reason not to sign up for Weebly like, right now, is if you’re looking to do some hardcore e-commerce, since that’s where Weebly falls short. But online store aside, Weebly is a phenomenal builder. Don’t believe me? Sign up right now and tell me you’re not in love…

Moved from Wordpress to Weebly and I Love it!
9.6 10
I love Weebly! I am an artist who was using Wordpress, but I found their system to be very confusing and difficult to use. I found I was emailing my web designer all the time with questions and help in changing the content. Now I do it all myself without the need of a designer! That means I am adding content far more often and shifting the design around. This, of course, also means lots more hits and better ranking by google. I don't write a lot of reviews, but I am happy to recommend weebly to any and all. You can check out my website to see what I have done with my limited computer knowledge?

Dig it!
8.4 10
It took a little while to get used to the object-based layout, but once I got the hang of it was able to do most of the things I wanted. For me, it's the best balance of the platforms in this class for easy-to-use features and design tools, and code access for custom marketing features like google WMT and retargeting pixels.

Poor experience
4.9 10
Weebly is very bad. When your editing a website with there software it is a nightmare Weebly seems to only allow you to put stuff in certain places.

There is no widget library and any widgets I could find In the software were useless and very limited.

Only good thing I could find about Weebly is that custom HTML is pushed to the main code.

If your thinking about using Weebly think again!!! Moonfruit gives click and drag editor allowing you to put anything you want anywhere!!!

Support and forum were very limited with a non active non helpful community

Do not use Weebly. Use Moonfruit!!!
