Great For Those With Little Experience

Overall, this would be my go-to platform to build a fast and easy website for any friends who need something great looking but manageable with little experience or learning curve.

Pros

The best thing about Weebly is the simplicity of building a very professional looking website with little or no site-building experience. If WordPress is out of reach for you but you need a solid professiona looking site for your small business, Weebly is the way to go. I built several websites for other companies in the past using this platform with the idea that they can then manage it themselves without any technical knowledge. This was the perfect platform for this and among other similar platforms definitely seemed to be the easiest to use.

Cons

There definitely is a ceiling of what you can do with this platform. From there you will want to move to something more advanced like WordPress. This isn't necessarily a knock on Weebly though, they never designed it to be a WordPress rival in general.

Build a turnkey store within minutes

It makes web development easy since i can drag and drop to design my website, find a domain and even setup a payment gate in one place.

Pros

Its easy for me to build a ready to go online store within minutes thanks to ready made templates.

Cons

I'm sometimes forced to include other payments gates since the native one is not supported worldwide.

Basic option if you want a free website build but there are better (and also free) options out...

Pros

Almost nothing. The base building software is free but it is extremely basic. The websites look like they are straight out of 1999 geocities templates, so if you are nostalgic, this is a great platform for you.

Cons

Where to start. Basic builds. Overly simplistic interface that may be easy to build on but looks downright terrible. HORRIBLE customer service. We switched owners of the site when I took over the website management and they merged my account with the previous owner giving both of us access to each other's personal information, including access to payment information and admin access to all other websites on our profiles. Customer service offered a 2 month extension on our free plan as an "I'm sorry" and brushed off the data breach without ever explaining how they let it happen besides promising to tell the engineers. This was after being passed back and forth between the Square customer service and multiple Weebly customer service reps over the course of nearly 90 minutes.

I inherited the Weebly built site otherwise I would have chosen a good free option like Wix which looks much better, has greater functionality, and is easier to use.

Drag and Drop Website Building For Beginners

Honestly, Weebly is an easy platform to use. You can quickly build a website for free or you can choose to go with a paid plan. I've used the free version and the paid version without any hiccups. For anyone just starting out online, their platform is a dream.

Pros

Weebly comes with website templates that are ready to go right out the box. For anyone looking to build a website without the fuss of watching a million tutorials or YouTube "how to" vids, this is a winner.

Cons

While Weebly makes website building is easy, there is little that can be done beyond the templates they provide. This is why I left Weebly and switched over to WordPress for all of my websites.

Alternatives Considered

WordPress and Squarespace

Reasons for Choosing Weebly

I preferred the website templates that Weebly had to offer over the templates that came with Wix.

Beginner Friendly Basic Website Builder

Pros

It is easy to drag and drop and manage your pages. It is very beginner friendly and easy to understand. But it is very limited and extremely basic in design and function.

Cons

While it is difficult to migrate, you are not stuck with Weebly if you design to migrate to a different host. It did glitch sometimes and was difficult to customize.

Alternatives Considered

Teachable, WordPress, Thinkific and Shopify

Reasons for Switching to Weebly

It was reasonably priced and had a free trial
