Overall Satisfaction with Weebly

I use Weebly both personally as a portfolio and living resume for myself as well as a recreational site for my current place of employment, Wyndham. For Wyndham, we use Weebly to share a virtual scavenger hunt for guests and bloggers that participate in social media. It's a fun way to get our guests engaged. Weebly is simple to use and navigate, easy to maintain or make changes and has plenty of options to customize.
  • Easy to customize. I love the many options Weebly offers to create customized pages.
  • I love the ease-of-use Weebly has. It is super easy to navigate and find what you are looking for. They even offer starter templates that you can customize.
  • I also appreciate that Weebly offers a free and paid version. The fact that I can use their free web-hosting and then buy a permanent link address is a great feature that I appreciate.
  • I love all the options Weebly has to offer, however, many of these options are stagnate in the sense that they cannot be manipulated. Some templates have fonts I would prefer to change and manipulate but Weebly doesn't allow it. I wish there was more freedom with font editing.
  • Editing shapes and placement of objects could be improved. Much like font, it is limited and would be amazing if there was a bit more freedom.
  • I wish there was a better variety of stock photos that don't look like stock photos for free. Sometimes the photos are just too cheesy to use and not everyone is a photographer.
  • For Wyndham use, there is strictly an entertainment value for our guests. So truly, there was no ROI.
  • For personal use, the ROI is priceless because it has aided me in finding job opportunities and the ability to showcase my experience and talents.

It is truly perfect for any start-up or personal portfolio. It is really a great platform for those who are not professional web designers but want a professional looking platform with ease. I don't think it's great for web designers that want to build from scratch with their own personal codes or touches because its's not truly meant for that purpose.
