Overall Satisfaction with Weebly

At our company we use Weebly as our primary tool for building, editing and hosting our company website. Weebly is an effective platform for companies that don't have a huge budget to hire developers to build their website. Weebly allows us to easily edit and control our website's content and design, quickly.
  • Weebly is easy to use. It's not hard to create web pages/blog posts and edit them with a convenient drag and drop builder.
  • Weebly templates are responsive and mobile friendly, so you don't have to worry about your site's appearance on a phone or tablet.
  • Weebly has e-commerce capabilities and is great for small companies just starting out in e-commerce.
  • Weebly doesn't have a lot of templates to choose from, so if you don't have any experience with CSS or HTML, it's hard to customize your site to an extent.
  • Weebly isn't fully SEO friendly. They don't allow you to add H1 tags to pages out of the box.
  • You can't create folder structures when it comes to web page URLs. You can put web pages under a main menu dropdown, but they don't allow you to put all sub-menu items in a structured folder (like and
  • Weebly has saved us a lot of time with site maintenance - if we need to make a change, it's easy to get in and out without spending a lot of time trying to code.
  • Weebly is cost effective, and right now we're getting just about everything we need from the tool so we're saving money (compared to other products).
If you want convenience and cost-effectiveness, Weebly is the go to. If you need a tool that's much more than just a basic website builder, HubSpot would be a great alternative (more expensive, more coding required, but a lot more features). Alternatively, since Weebly doesn't have a landing page feature, you could purchase a product like Instapage or Leadpages to work in parallel with Weebly.
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.
