Building a website can be a new and exciting, but starting from scratch can be a daunting task, especially if you’re new to web design. Sometimes it can be hard to figure out where to even begin, but that’s where website building tools like Weebly come in. Today, we’ll be taking a closer look at the simple yet professional website builder Weebly.


What is Weebly?

Weebly is a website builder¬†created with the goal that anyone should be able to create a website without any prior knowledge of web design and it comes with a host of powerful tools in order to help you do that. Additionally, the website builder has the capabilities for you to create an eCommerce website by creating a store front and allowing credit card transactions. In order to understand why you should choose Weebly, we’ve highlighted several features that come with choosing their service.



Whether you’re an experienced website creator or entirely new to website design, Weebly’s website builder is easy-to-use. You do not need any knowledge of HTML. Instead, it has a user-friendly interface with numerous tools at your disposal. Start with one of their responsive themes and customize it to create a design unique to your website. You also get access to the Weebly App Center which offers additional elements that you can add to your website to make it your own.


Drag and drop

To replace HTML, Weebly users use the interface’s drag-and-drop menu. Its simple framework allows you to drop elements onto a page to create a customized layout. You can then edit these elements on the page with your own content. You can create and integrate custom forms, RSVP lists and surveys reliably and efficiently. There are no confusing plugins or complex features to work around making it great for beginners. However, users looking for more advanced features can still use HTML and CSS to customize their site.
