Based in Canada, Bookmark is an AI-based website builder that mostly targets small business owners who are seeking an easy way to build a professionally looking website for their business with minimum to no technical requirements.
The Bookmark English website has a professional and attractive layout, and is very easy to browse. The builder’s dashboard is also available in English only and all prices are displayed in US dollars.
Features and Ease of Use
Bookmark is slightly different from your usual website builder as it doesn’t just provide you with different template options to choose from. Instead, it relies on AIDA, a highly intuitive AI design assistant that uses proprietary machine learning algorithms to build your website.
Once you create an account, AIDA starts asking you a few questions about your business and your preferred website style. Based on your answers, AIDA builds a primary layout for your website which you can edit later. With a simple drag-and-drop procedure, you can easily adjust every element on your website.
Bookmark supports all types of websites. You can create an e-commerce website (online store) with all its features (e.g. shopping cart, HTTPS secured credit card transactions, and more). You can also create your own blog.
All websites built by Bookmark are secured with an SSL certificate that’s included free of charge with all plans.
With Bookmark, your website will be hosted on Amazon Cloud Hosting 9 or Amazon’s global network of cloud servers. This will boost its accessibility from multiple locations around the world. To safeguard your data, your website and all its contents are automatically backed up in the cloud of Amazon’s servers on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis.
All designs on Bookmark are highly responsive and mobile-ready. In other words, your website is automatically adjusted to look perfect across all types of devices (mobile, tablet, laptop, smart TV, etc.).
Bookmark supports SEO optimization to improve your website’s position within search engines such as Google to make it easier for your customers to find it.
To give your website a more attractive look, you can insert video backgrounds. In addition, Bookmark has a built-in gallery that contains countless stock images and videos to use on your website. It’s also easy to upload your own images and edit them with Bookmark’s Photo Editor.
Link all your social media platforms (Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Twitter, etc.) directly in your website with Bookmark’s social media integration capabilities. You can also create social media buttons on your website for your customers to easily follow you on these platforms.
Keep track of your visitors traffic with Bookmark’s Analytics dashboard. The dashboard also includes page views, visitors’ countries, language, browser, and more.
Pricing and Support
There are three different price plans offered by Bookmark: Basic, Professional, and Business. The Basic plan is completely free (not a free-trial) and comes with 1 GB Bandwidth, 500 MB storage, free hosting, and a few other basic features. The other two paid plans come with unlimited storage and bandwidth.
On the downside, Bookmark’s prices are pretty expensive. Nevertheless, all plans are backed by a 14-day money-back guarantee and all major credit/debit cards are accepted by Bookmark.
There’s a comprehensive Knowledgebase with articles and tutorials covering most major topics on the website. In addition, there’s a helpful FAQ section, a community forum, and a few useful video tutorials.
If you haven’t subscribed yet, the only way to reach Bookmark’s customer support is through email. However, once you’ve created an account, you can also contact them through live chat. I personally tested the live chat feature and was instantly connected to a helpful agent who promptly addressed all my questions.
