The service provision is good the accounts customer service is poor so I would struggle to give BC a better than average review, if only they could offer customers a better accounts service then the value would be much higher.

Weebly is great when you're trying to quickly prototype a landing page or mock up a new idea to show team members or early adopter users in order to get their feedback. You'd be OK to use Weebly even for low traffic personal sites like blogs or small e-commerce stores.The places where I'd be hesitant to recommend Weebly would be any scenario in which a lot of people are expected to simultaneously use the site or anything that requires custom back-end code.

Pros

  • Analytics: I am able to see on multiple levels traffic, clicks, and most importantly search terms for improving SEO. The reports are easy to generate as well as read, especially for small inexperienced business owners.
  • Marketing: When using the BC platform businesses are able to link up easily with Adobe Marketing to automatically send out emails and newsletters. Its a very smooth and painless process.
  • Online Editing: This is probably the best part of BC. Once a design is approved and launched on the platform, my clients do not have to contact me for small content updates. This frees me up as a small business owner to concentrate on design, new clients, and larger projects for existing clients.

  • 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

  • Multi Client Management: The dashboard for managing multiple clients as a reseller is a little difficult to get to. There is also no very easy way for me to manage multiple clients at once. I have to log into and out of individual client accounts to do billing or management.
  • Lack of Server support: There are certain server protocols and languages that are not supported using BC. For example I cannot build a custom php database and upload to BC. I am required to use their tools.

  • Weebly's pricing structure leaves plenty of room for improvement. Their Pro and Business tiers should be combined, as the overlap is significant and often confuses clients.
  • The inability to expand my account to handle all 18 client sites under one account is frustrating. We are forced to have two separate logins and set both accounts as editors for all sites on each account, instead of just paying double the annual fee and getting all the sites together.
  • The inability to shift a client's site from 'white label' to group management is terribly irritating.
  • The default themes are fairly limited in style and do not always directly follow modern design trends, making matching client desires more difficult.

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.

The support provided by Adobe is excellent. Though the knowledge base, forums, blogs and online chat questions most all answers can be found. In the event that you are unable to find an answer or you have a unique situation simply post a question to the forums. These forums are regularly monitored by Adobe and its users.

Alternatives Considered

More reliable; more integrated tools
Nancy Sheridan profile photo
Weebly has a different selection of themes that I just believed better suited my needs. It all depends on what you need out of your website builder. Weebly’s interface can be more appealing to the user, cleaner and more accessible to those not well versed in code and who need a way of making their own portfolio/product sites.
