Reviews and expert opinion Heymo

Heymo is a feature-packed drag and drop website builder that works well for beginners. But its super small template library, limited plan options, and slow support will make you think twice, which is why I prefer using Wix.


Overview

Founded in 2008, Heymo is a sub-brand of the Swedish company Hemsida24. In addition to offering a user-friendly website builder, it offers website hosting and domain registration.

The Heymo website is very sleek and interactive, but it’s entirely in Swedish. Nevertheless, you’ll find it easy to browse, if you use your browser’s translation tool.

The user interface of the builder is available in multiple languages (e.g., English, Arabic, Swedish, French, Spanish, Romanian, etc.). However, the interface for developers is only available in Swedish.

Features and Ease of Use

Using the Heymo drag-and-drop website builder is simple, with no special skills required. That’s why it’s more tailored for novices or small to medium businesses. 

You start by creating an account and selecting a design that you like (a tutorial video will appear to give you some tips). After that, you can start building your pages, changing colors and fonts, and so on.

Heymo is packed with features and tools. There’s a huge image library with more than 300,000 images to choose from, animations, picture blocks, lots of font styles, social media icons, forms, maps, symbol library, search engine optimization (SEO), and so much more.

With the undo functionality, you can easily reverse one or more steps. You can also add your HTML code using the HTML block to customize your website or add a third-party service.

Heymo also provides you with secure hosting and HTTPS to secure your website. Plus, the password protected pages feature lets you restrict certain pages and create a password, so only certain visitors will be able to access those pages or website.

On the other hand, Heymo doesn’t offer emails for free, so you’ll need to purchase a G-Suite package to get emails.

Another downside to Heymo is that it only offers 15 templates, which is very limited compared to other website builders in its tier like Wix.

Pricing and Support

Heymo offers two different plans – a free plan, called Dream, and a paid plan called Drive. The free plan lasts for 30 days and then is automatically terminated. In other words, it’s a 30-day free trial.

The Dream plan comes with limited features. However, like the Drive plan, it comes with unlimited pages and storage, among other basic features.

Heymo’s prices (with or without discounts) are slightly expensive, given the limited number of plans it offers.

Unlike most website builders, Heymo offers only one communication channel to contact customer support: live chat, which is only available on weekdays from 8 AM to 5 PM.

I had a few questions about the free plan, so I hopped on the live chat. First, I was greeted by a robot to enter some information and my question. Shortly after, I was transferred to a human who answered all my questions, but not instantly.

Bottom line on Heymo

I’m impressed with Heymo’s versatile feature set, polished website, and its 30-day free plan offer. However, it didn’t make it to our expert list of the best website builders. Its template collection is very limited and there isn’t much room for developers to work their magic. Support options are also limited to a live chat that isn’t available at all times. 

Pros:

  • Free plan for 30 days
  • Social media integration
  • Easy-to-use drag-and-drop website builder
  • Large free image gallery
  • Multilingual user interface

Cons:

  • Limited number of templates
  • Website is in Swedish only

Need a wide range of templates and more personalized options? You won’t be disappointed with Wix.
