Overall Satisfaction with Pixpa

I have been using Pixpa as my online portfolio builder for 1 year and it has been a superb experience with the tools they provide to quickly and easily build my website. After a lot of research, trial and errors, I chose Pixpa as a platform to build my online presence. Being a professional expert in design and photography, Pixpa is an exact match for all my needs from a professional portfolio builder. They have very quick customer service, with typical response time being within 1-2 hours.

The pre-built themes, gallery designs, layouts are wonderful and easy to set up anytime. The user interface is intuitive and super-fun to use. The SEO capabilities are the best amongst all such services out there.

I think they have a master key to fulfill the needs of all creative pros whether it's photographers, designers, or artists. Their customer-oriented approach and a dedicated team to help each and every customer in all aspects, makes them the best website builder I have ever worked on.

Pixpa lets me quickly update my designs and photography projects effortlessly and with effectiveness.

  • Brilliant and visually appealing designs and templates.
  • Best customer support I have ever seen in a paid service. Any kind of help and support is welcomed by their dedicated team of customer success.
  • Pixpa's PageBuilder is very powerful and has capabilities to design any kind of page with rich content pieces like forms, video embeds, maps etc., with the help of its drag-and-drop features.
  • The entire story revolves around building a clean and easy to navigate website which by far Pixpa has implemented very efficiently.
  • SEO capabilities of Pixpa are the best than any of the similar services out there in the website builder space.
  • I am looking after third party integrations with awesome tools like Dropbox, Google apps etc., which I believe the Pixpa product team must be having plans about, in the near future.
  • Using Pixpa, I was able to generate a lot of user traction on my professional website. The way my work has been portrayed on the website helped me a lot to earn big clients for my design projects.
  • Not only have I had a good amount of traffic on my site applauding my work, I even received a lot of quotes asking me for my freelance rates for their design and photography projects.
  • The interface is pretty easy to use and I am always backed up with the awesome support from the Pixpa customer success team, whenever I need it.
I have previously used Wix and Squarespace to build my photography and design portfolio. But I think the way Pixpa portrays my photographs and designs is by far the best in the industry. Pixpa's primary focus revolves around showcasing my photographs and designs, and I see it by far the best in the industry. Moreover, my website loads pretty fast, and this acts as an advantage for them, since most of top website builders are struggling with slower site speed. Pixpa has a very easy interface and compelling templates, better than Squarespace and Wix (I think) along with pre-built content blocks which I can use to build any kind of custom page with the help of their awesome drag-and-drop PageBuilder tool. This saves a lot of my time.
I think Pixpa is a one stop solution for all the creative professionals to build their own portfolio websites without requiring any kind of coding knowledge. The way Pixpa portrays one's online presence is impeccable and I would highly recommend Pixpa to anybody with a creative mind that wants to showcase their art, earn big clients, or jump start and online businesses, etc.

  • Price
  • Product Features
  • Product Usability
  • Positive Sales Experience with the Vendor
  • Third-party Reviews
The Most important factors which lead my to my decision of purchasing the product were its flexible pricing, superb support staff, and of-course the product features including Custom Drag-and-Drop PageBuilder , Responsive Design, Client Proofing, SEO friendly, intuitive UI ,and much more. I think this is what any professional will expect from a professional portfolio website builder.
I have a pretty simple but solid selection criteria which includes:
  1. Responsive Design
  2. Easy-to-use Interface
  3. Quick Page Load Time
  4. Visually Appealing Website Templates
  5. Protection of my Images.
  6. Image Quality
What else should I require other than this? Pixpa fulfills all of them and hence my choice.

Pixpa Implementation

Change management was minimal - Pixpa is easy to set up. I remember setting it up in one go. It hardly took 1-1.5 hours to put my professional website live. Anyone with senses can easily set up their website with super-ease. Moreover, if you are stuck at some point they have an in-app conversation tool where you can request support.
  • It is a desktop only application. It does not support mobile devices.

Pixpa Support

A couple of reasons why they are best at support :

  • Wonderful staff.
  • Quick action on support tickets.
  • Turnaround time of merely 1-2 hours.
Quick Resolution

Quick Initial Response
No - This is the best part about Pixpa's support. There is no additional cost associated with their support. No matter how big or small the problem is, the customer success and support team does its best to solve the issue on a priority basis. Had there been an additional cost, I would have definitely paid them for their awesome support. But in all my senses, I believe they won't charge for their support services as this is what distinguishes them from similar services.

Using Pixpa

Pixpa is easy-to-use platform and it allows me to quickly update my website with hardly any effort. It's UI is pretty pleasing and anyone could easily understand its functionality.
