What does Weebly do well? Weebly's website editor is a drag-and-drop editor, so it's pretty easy to build a website without having any development experience. Their pricing is reasonable, and although we aren't an ecommerce company, I've heard they excel in the ecommerce area. They also have lots of templates to choose from.
What does Weebly not do well? With their ease-of-use in terms of dragging and dropping to edit the website, comes the sacrifice of customizing your website. Plus, Weebly doesn't help much with SEO. For example, if you want to add a H1 tag to a webpage, you have to code the HTML yourself. Their 'Heading' widgets are only H2s.
What do you wish you had known about Weebly before using? I wish I'd known the things I do about development. One of the main reasons we went with Weebly initially was because it doesn't require a developer to create and maintain a website. Over the years I've learned more about CSS and HTML so I can customize things on my own now, and can handle a more sophisticated website building platform with more features than Weebly.
Have you used a competitor to Weebly? If so, how does it compare? I've used HubSpot's website tool. It's a lot more sophisticated than Weebly, but requires more development experience to use. Overall I prefer HubSpot's.
