If you need an ecommerce, email marketing and affiliate program - it is great to have this all in one solution. Larger businesses with many employees in remote locations may need a different solution. If you do not need ecommerce or affiliate, you can use a lower cost program that costs less. The learning curve is short for a solo entrepreneur with some technical knowledge.

Weebly

For a basic website that isn't too concerned with bells or whistles or being found/SEO, and doesn't have much of a budget, Weebly should be an option. There are customizations that can help the sites appear a little more advanced/appealing, but it takes some time, creativity, and knowledge. Easy to set up and manage!

Pros

  • Access to contact information and creating customer profiles - good for reaching out through customer service, accessing email address, address and detailed information on the client helpful for responding quickly and easily
  • Able to add products and programs through auto responders - able to help share information with different groups of people easily and based on specific options within 1ShoppingCart
  • Easy to create coupon codes and pass to customers or add to website or newsletter for specific time ranges and products
  • Simple to add different products and sell easily with the integrated shopping cart
  • Great tool for multiple users to use and work as a virtual team based on different tasks and range that 1ShoppingCart has
  • Ability to create detailed reports based on sales, customers, and so much more. Very helpful for planning.
  • Quick start: You can have a website set up within 15 minutes of thinking of the idea. Weebly is really good at providing templates and starter sites that you can edit quickly. At the same time, you can put in custom HTML blocks into the page so even advanced code can be deployed or tested very quickly.
  • Mobile editing of websites: Weebly provides an iPad app that lets you edit websites on the go or while you're in a team meeting in a conference room.
  • E-commerce features: Weebly allows you to build an online store with drag and drop and not have to worry about coding the payment system or shopping cart. This feature alone saves several days of programming time.

Cons

  • I found their customer service team to be confusing with their responses and not as helpful as other products customer service teams. It can be frustrating to try to decipher their responses to more complicated questions and often felt a little 'annoying' whenever I needed to reach out.
  • When creating newsletters, I found the WYSIWYG (what you see if what you get) version of creating newsletters the formatting was almost always off which always resulted in needing to send tests to myself to fix the formatting because it never showed up as it would look when it was sent. That took a lot of extra time to edit.
  • Lots of different options with reports, as a beginner you may need someone else to support you. In the beginning I needed support from other team members in how to understand and create certain reports. Not the most intuitive and user friendly until you understand what you're doing!
  • Limitations on customization of templates
  • Original domains are expensive
  • More predesigned and specific templates would be great

If I were in charge of the renewal decision I would really take a look at 1SC vs. Infusionsoft. There are many ways each are great and many ways they are different. I would look at what was best for my company and make the choice accordingly. I find that Infusionsoft has many more ways to intuitively market, segment and cultivate new leads and grow the business as a whole than 1SC currently has.

Weebly is consistently adding features that line up with our needs. The ease of use makes it the perfect program for us since we have users of multiple age brackets and knowledge of web design. We love that we can give users access to only the pages they are affiliated with

It is simple to use and offers enough customization to make a website that is personalized. Templates are pretty standard and the help section is laid out well by topic with frequently asked questions. Some design knowledge is helpful, but through trial and error anyone can get a hold of the reins fairly quickly.

Alternatives Considered

1SC was chosen years ago for the companies I've used it for. At that point they were one of the only companies offering this kind of service. The ability to have customers all in one place, have opt-ins to keep building the list and ability to add hundreds of products and programs and add these to the website are all reasons the company continues to use 1SC
Weebly is still one of my favorite web builder software which means they continue to modify the platform for simplicity and speed. Weebly has a robust small business, e-commerce upgrade and almost for every type of website. All you have to is create your website quickly using their perfect templates.

Return on Investment

  • Better ability to gather information quickly for customers to support in the customer service response time
  • Faster lead conversion
  • Ability for multiple users to use the product under different user names so the team can work on different projects at once
  • Unless you know HTML the newsletters can take some time to be formatted correctly based on other programs
  • It does not require any program codes to create website
  • Allows me to create good quality websites quickly and easily
  • Pretty cool and useful software
