Weebly is best used for people with a small business that need an easy-to-edit website. The purchasing with square integrates easily if needed, and I have used this feature with another company before. I would not recommend using this if you need an employee portal that is specific to a person. Multiple users do not seem to work well with this platform.

I have found that Weebly is a one-stop solution for any small business. Having used the program for so many years, I feel confident in how Weebly works and what it offers. I feel comfortable suggesting this to ANYONE. It is very easy to learn and there are so many training resources, making it feasible for anyone with computer experience to learn the platform. Since Weebly is a template-based web designer, there are 2 scenarios in which Weebly might be challenging. The first is if someone wants or needs very specific customization. I have found it rare that people can't find what they need in Weebly, but it is possible. The other scenario in which Weebly could be a challenge is in SEO. Since Weebly is a templated site, the Google Bots have to read the Weebly code and the website code in order to rank the website. This could present a challenge for some businesses who have A LOT of competition in their market. We have not had a problem with either of these issues, but it is good to be aware of these situations.

Weebly is well suited for an individual or organization that is smaller and needs a basic website with limited functionality. Weebly is an excellent platform to start a website and grow on, but not the ideal platform to stay.

This platform might not be ideal if you're a mid-sized organization or an organization that makes a lot of online sales.

My search for a website solution focused on finding a product that non-technical contributors could embrace with little-to-no training. I also needed a solution that tightened security to the point that individual contributors had access to change what they needed, but not what they were not responsible for. Weebly works great in situations like this.

Weebly is beneficial when one has to create a website but doesn't know how to code. It is also helpful for those small businesses or individuals who struggle to hire a website designer to make their website. It is an excellent choice for companies looking to build a small e-commerce store. Large businesses can not use Weebly due to the fewer functionalities which would otherwise be needed by the business owners.

If you are having students create websites or information pages about something they are studying in class, this is a great option. The fact that students can spend less time getting situated and learning the app and get right to work researching and creating their pages is great. For middle to high school, this is a fantastic app to use. However, if you want more nuanced analytics or want students to focus on blogging more than webpage building, this is limited.

I work on a website for a local flower arrangement professional. Weebly makes it easy for her to change up components on her website and gave her exactly what she needs in terms of design and functionality.

I also work for a kickboxing gym. The layout we chose required a lot of code manipulation to make the logo larger than what was originally allowed.

If you're a small business owner and you want a simple website that tells your company's story, this is a great tool to get out the basic meat and potatoes about what you are. It doesn't do anything extraordinary, which is a good thing. Give me the tools I need to build a simple functioning website without a lot of knowledge of HTML/CSS or other languages. I think Weebly answers the question here.

Best for small, niche, online businesses. Great for creative products, start-ups anything just getting going. I sell beginning - intermediate level violin sheet music and teaching resources and everything is a digital download (or eBook is another way of saying this). Honestly, Weebly has been perfect for me in terms of getting started and offering a fairly specific product to musicians from all over the world.

Weebly is a great platform if you need a brochure-ware website. It's got some great features and you can't beat how easy it is to use. On the downside, the blog and e-commerce functionality is limited. Although there are several fairly easy to use platforms out there, I use it for many of my clients that are just starting out or need one they can eventually manage and update themselves as their businesses evolve -- which is especially true in the beginning or at the startup of a business. However, it can also scale, since you can create almost any number of pages and add content like audio and video. Additional functionality may be added through embeds.

Weebly is well-suited for small e-commerce companies that have limited budget and expertise for creating a website. If you need to come up with a website fast and aren't worried about heavy customizations, Weebly will be a good tool in the short-term. It won't take long for you to outgrow Weebly though.

Weebly adapts very well to all the companies that require a website to make an online store, helps the company to grow at a professional level, which means that profits increase, you can view it from any device, it helps attract more customers.

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!

It is perfect for portfolio building and shop pages. It is not so great for things such as hosting your game or more high intensive things. If you are a freelance artist or designer, this is especially an excellent website platform to use; I use it to display my works for potential employers.

I think it's appropriate for smaller businesses or non-profits. If you are looking to sell a certain number of items or you're looking for a place to start, I think Weebly is great for that. I don't think Weebly would be the best for large-scale brands or individuals who are trying to sell a LOT of stuff, because that would be difficult to manage on there.

First, I think Weebly is currently the best and easiest software to create and edit any website. Dashboard and overall design is wonderful and easy to navigate anything you want to do. You can add and work on font types, images, videos and other graphic sources, except personalize the templates. They have a lack of customization on this side.

You can use all kinds of elements on your website, such as maps. photos, videos, slideshows only using a drag and drop feature. Weebly is very simple to setup and use. And it didn't take too much time to learn how to use it. I think it can be useful for any company, especially small organizations.

Weebly is definitely well suited for small business that don't have a large marketing budget or tech savvy employees but would still like to have information reach their customers. Weebly would not be something I would recommend for a company looking to sell merchandise online or a company with a technology department and the ability to create a little more integrated site for their customers.

Weebly is a great tool for creating a website to house many pages and data for someone that is less tech-savvy. It is perfect for small businesses that don't receive as much web traffic. I would say this software is less ideal for bigger businesses with higher web traffic.

I like the drag and drop feature most, it makes the creation of websites quick and you don't have to learn about HTML codes. It has so many templates in every subject, all you have to do is choose one of the templates and by using the drag and drop method add your contents to your site easily. You can choose to use a free subdomain of Weebly as .weebly.com. If you want more professional domains you have to buy them, but prices are cheaper than others.

Great for digital portfolios. Wonderful for small business ventures that needed to develop a website to promote products/services. Less appropriate for classes that are not digital or use graphics: for example a math class. However, I believe that Weebly can be designed to fit any needs; a resource for flipped learning.

It offers a free plan to get started on, which is great. It's pretty easy to learn and use, but drag and drop features would be even easier. Some of the templates look dated and could be more fresh and new. If you want a free site for your sports team, family, church, or club, this is a good place to start. If you want a more professional site with complex features like a store, instant downloads, landing page, etc., you'll want to pay for the upgrade.
