  • 1. 1 All Rights Reserved. http://www.websitebuilderexpert.com/ Weebly Review Is It Really the Easiest Way to Create a Website? All opinions and commentaries are based on the author’s own hands-on experiences with the website builders.
  • 2. 2 All Rights Reserved. http://www.websitebuilderexpert.com/ Weebly Overview A brief introduction to Weebly and who should be using them
  • 3. All Rights Reserved. http://www.websitebuilderexpert.com/ 3 Weebly Overview  Weebly is a very user friendly, robust and reliable website builder.  If you are looking to build a business website or a personal website, Weebly can help you accomplish this with very little technical knowledge on your part.  Weebly is a drag and drop website builder, so you literally drag website building blocks (such as a picture or a paragraph) into your screen when you are building a website.
  • 4. All Rights Reserved. http://www.websitebuilderexpert.com/ 4 Weebly Overview  Very user friendly and intuitive to use and you don’t have to know codes.  Feedback from Weebly users is that they are very satisfied with building websites with Weebly given it’s comprehensive website building tools, ease of use, at very affordable prices (free for most people).
  • 5. 5 All Rights Reserved. http://www.websitebuilderexpert.com/ Weebly Pros and Cons The 3 Top Pros and Cons of Weebly
  • 6. All Rights Reserved. http://www.websitebuilderexpert.com/ 6 Weebly Pro - #1  One of the easiest and user friendly drag & drop website builder in the market  They don’t overwhelm you excessive number of tools, but all the strong basics to build a functional website.  Weebly’s user interface is very intuitive to use, which is good for all levels of users.  You can literally build a good website in less than an hour.
  • 7. All Rights Reserved. http://www.websitebuilderexpert.com/ 7 Weebly Pro - #2  Free to use - Weebly’s free platform provides you enough tools to build a functional website (even when you’re not paying a dime, which is awesome).  There is no pressure to upgrade to the paid platform, but only if you want to.  No credit card information is required to sign up for a free account, and there is no time limit to the free account – you can use it forever if you want to.
  • 8. All Rights Reserved. http://www.websitebuilderexpert.com/ 8 Weebly Pro - #3  Broad range of templates allows you to build a professional looking website.  You get access to all the templates from Weebly (even with a free account) and they are adding more designs on a regular basis.  Weebly also grants you access to their HTML / CSS editor so you can modify the website design as you wish (or hire someone to help you do this).
  • 9. All Rights Reserved. http://www.websitebuilderexpert.com/ 9 Weebly Con - #1  Not designed for complex e-commerce needs  If you are looking to build an online shop with a lot of products, Weebly’s e-commerce tools are not advanced enough yet to help you manage your online shop needs (such as multiple product displays, inventory tracking, item options, different payment option other than PayPal, customization of emails to confirm orders).  However, there are third party shopping carts that you can integrate into a Weebly website to supplement this – Weebly is flexible enough to support this.
  • 10. All Rights Reserved. http://www.websitebuilderexpert.com/ 10 Weebly Con - #2  Limited number of designer-caliber templates  The quality of Weebly’s templates is relatively average when compared to other website builders.  However, they are ramping up their designs and are getting much better at this – so they are improving.  There are also third party Weebly templates providers which really help.
  • 11. All Rights Reserved. http://www.websitebuilderexpert.com/ 11 Weebly Con - #3  Very basic blog functions Weebly’s blogging function gives you the bare basics.  If you manage a large number of blog posts with a wide range of categories, Weebly doesn’t provide users with an efficient way to organize and manage articles.  Weebly could also improve with features such as “Most Popular Posts” or “Related Posts”. These would help improve user experiences as visitors can quickly get to the most popular read articles.  These are features that can be improved, but not detrimental to building a good website.

  • 13. All Rights Reserved. http://www.websitebuilderexpert.com/ 13 Weebly – Ease of Use  Weebly is a WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) website builder, meaning you build the entire website right in front of you and what you see when you are building, is what actually shows up after you publish the website.  There is no flipping back and forth between editing mode and preview mode to see how your website will actually look after publishing.  Overall, Weebly is one of the most intuitive and easy to use website builders we’ve tested.
  • 14. 14 All Rights Reserved. http://www.websitebuilderexpert.com/ Weebly Templates Decent templates, and improving. There are independent premium templates providers!
  • 15. All Rights Reserved. http://www.websitebuilderexpert.com/ 15 Weebly Templates Options  Weebly started off with mediocre design templates a few years ago. Since then, Weebly has been creating more and better template designs  Weebly also gives you access to their HTML / CSS editor so if you want, you can also customize the website’s design there (or hire someone to help you).  There are also third party templates providers out there that give you more design options and choices at affordable prices  Overall, there are plenty of good quality options for designing your Weebly website.
  • 16. 16 All Rights Reserved. http://www.websitebuilderexpert.com/ Support / Tutorials / Community Resources Responsive support team, but lacks user community
  • 17. All Rights Reserved. http://www.websitebuilderexpert.com/ 17 Committed Customer Support  Based on our experiences and users feedback, Weebly’s support team is responsive and will answer all emails.  They have a small team that is servicing a very large group of users, so be patient on the response time.  Additional support channels include posting your questions on their Facebook page or even contacting them via Twitter.
  • 18. All Rights Reserved. http://www.websitebuilderexpert.com/ 18 Tutorial Resources – Helpful  Weebly also has an online Support Center which is basically a “How To Guide” to use their tools to build your website.  They also host live free webinars which covers topics such as “Beginner’s guide to Weebly” and “Advanced Website Editing”.  If you want to learn a few more advanced tips and tricks, DivTag Templates has interesting Weebly tutorials which you can receive for free.
  • 19. All Rights Reserved. http://www.websitebuilderexpert.com/ 19 Community Forum Support  One of the things that some other website builders have is a community forum, where users can exchange ideas, post questions and find answers to questions that have already been asked.  Weebly does not have such a forum yet. It’s a “nice to have”, but not absolutely important when it comes to influencing how good of a website you can build.
  • 20. 20 All Rights Reserved. http://www.websitebuilderexpert.com/ Weebly Hosting / Export Options You can export Weebly websites!
  • 21. All Rights Reserved. http://www.websitebuilderexpert.com/ 21 Weebly Hosting  Weebly hosts all the websites for you, so you don’t have to pay for hosting separately.  They manage the entire hosting process for you so you can focus on building your website and other more important things  Weebly takes care of all the security upgrades for their servers and do all the technical details to ensure your website is always up and running, and doesn’t get hacked.
  • 22. All Rights Reserved. http://www.websitebuilderexpert.com/ 22 Weebly Exporting Option  One important benefit that makes Weebly stands out is that they allow you to export / archive your website.  So if you ever want to export your website to another host, you can be free to do so. It’s nice when a website builder doesn’t hold you hostage – that’s a nice touch.  Here is a quick video tutorial on how to export a Weebly website and import it into another host.
  • 23. 23 All Rights Reserved. http://www.websitebuilderexpert.com/ Weebly Pricing Packages Is Weebly Worth Your Investment?
  • 24. All Rights Reserved. http://www.websitebuilderexpert.com/ 24 Weebly Pro and Starter Plans  Weebly Pro and Starter Plans offer you upgraded tools over the Free plan, which enable you to build a much better website.  The 2-year plan gives you the best value and if you think about it, $3.29 per month for the Weebly Starter plan is about 11 cents per day, and $6.63 per month for the Weebly Pro plan is about 22 cents per day.  Click to see detailed analysis of Weebly’s pricing plans

Their user interface is minimalistic, so it is designed intentionally to not overwhelm you.  Weebly’s difficulty level is rated as “Low” - it is suitable for users of all technical skill levels (even if you are an absolute beginner).
  • 27. All Rights Reserved. http://www.websitebuilderexpert.com/ 27 Weebly Review - Conclusion  A good approach is to start with a free website, familiarize yourself with their tools and how easy or difficult it is for you to use Weebly, then make your decision to upgrade or not.
