Simply Built vs Weebly

by | Aug 6, 2021

Being able to DIY your entire website can seem like an enticing prospect! Until that is, you get into a
jam that traditional drag and drop doesn’t quite cover. But spending all the money necessary to get a
dedicated creative team in your corner can be overwhelming when you’re just getting started.
Before you head out to purchase or invest in any one website builder, it’s good to compare what exactly
you’ll be getting with the company! Some standard pillars to judge a website builder from are cost,
features, and support team.

Cost

Weebly

Weebly has managed to carve out and maintain a corner of the website building world as other
competitors have fallen out of the running. One way they’ve managed it is to keep costs extremely low
for users of any budget. The first tier is a free version which has plenty of restrictions including a non-
removable Weebly ad but you can go up to a $29/month professional version which includes e-
commerce.

Simply Built

While Weebly has only a drag-and-drop option when it comes to building your site, Simply Built pairs
you up with a Guide within their system who walks you through the entire process. You don’t get this
kind of service for nothing though! The base price for using Simply Build is $79/month but there are a lot
of benefits to having someone squarely in your creative corner!

Features

Weebly

Drag-and-drop website builders can seem pretty standard but there are several features that give
Weebly a different feel including e-commerce integration. Many of these features don’t come into play
though until you upgrade your service. So if you’re looking for a free website that will allow you to do
everything necessary to run your business, you won’t find it on the free level of Weebly.

Simply Built

Whatever kind of features you can find on Weebly, Squarespace, or any other drag-and-drop site across
the web, you’ll find in Simply Built! Not only can you opt for drag-and-drop options that allow you a lot
of control of your site, you’re automatically paired with a Guide who helps take you through the entire
process. This Guide works with the design team, makes sure you don’t overstep your budget or bounds,
and works with you to create and add in content. The design team at Simply Built brings your dream to
life while you keep on running your business!

Support

Weebly

Every now and then, things are bound to go a little haywire whether you intend for them to or not.
When that happens, you’ll need some serious support! Weebly is a company that has deep roots in the
website building business and they have a 24/7 support team to help you work through issues. This help
is limited to smaller problems that can pop up as you build. They won’t be there to help you determine
the correct amount of content or decide on a color scheme.

Simply Built

While you can’t get a free version of Simply Built, you get what you pay for! The money you invest in the
company comes back to you ten-fold in support from the team. Your dedicated Guide works with you
every step of the way, whether you just want to work with the drag-and-drop system or if you’re ready
to let them fill in the colors, set-up, and type of site itself.

Takeaway

Weebly has long been a player in the website builder field and if you’re ready to put in the work yourself
to get everything done, they’ve got a great drag-and-drop set up for you. If, however, you want a little
bit more of a team on your side, Simply Built is the way to go! You’ll pay a bit more for the experience
but being able to work with a team who knows your business and is ready to make it a success is a
fantastic way to get started!
