Strikingly

With multiple website building options out there, it is easy to create a website these days. Squarespace, WordPress, Wix are few popular options which you might have already heard. But there are few other website builders which almost does the job like them. Strikingly is one such website builder, that concentrates on making the website building an easy process even for beginners and providing excellent designs for websites with an emphasis on landing pages. Although it is not typical store builders, you can still create a simple store with tens of products using Strikingly. Although there are many Strikingly reviews out there, I wanted to write a more detailed one highlighting important attributes of the website builder and explain where Strikingly falls on the scale.

In the below Strikingly review, I will go over design, price, loading time, mobile friendliness, types of websites offered, SEO options it is, integrations, support, blogging options, interactivity and time taken for website set up. I tested Strikingly in each of these categories and will share with you one by one, how this website builderfared.

Is Strikingly website builder for you?

Read on, and by the end of this short article, you will have your answer.

Usability

Like the pioneers in the industry, options to edit, add content, pages, products, images, and videos is quite easy. All you need to do is point-click-activate the option you want. If you have some experience with infographic makers like Piktochart, or with some other website builder, creating a website with Strikingly should be a cakewalk.  Don’t worry if you do not have that experience! You can still make the most out of this website builder by spending a couple of hours trying all the options on the dashboard with free trial version.

Customizing menus, creating multiple page site, adding a blog to the website, connecting the website to a domain name, embedding HTML, CSS, and JavaScript to your website, adding products and managing simple store is all an easy process with Strikingly. If you get stuck with any of these things, they have helpful knowledge base and videos that can pretty much solve your doubts.

Design

Strikingly offers 11 different theme designs to their customers which is one of the lowest designs count you will find in a website builder. If you compare Strikingly vs Wix for the number of templates, Wix has 45 times more template designs than Strikingly. The average amount of theme designs provided by other website buildersis between 50 and 100. Strikingly is clearly falling short in this category. When it comes to design flexibility, Stinkingly templates doesn’t bode well either. Making changes to the design of your site using Strikingly is highly limited and inflexible. You don’t get very many options for edits and customization. The designs section is not where Strikingly excels. It is one of the most limited website builders when it comes to design.

Loading Time

To test the loading time for Stinkingly, I used GTmetrix. Strikingly’s loading time turned out to be 10.1 seconds. The shortest loading time I have seen is 2.8 seconds, and the longest is 18.6 seconds. This gives you a good idea of how Strikingly’s loading time lines up. It’s pretty much right in the middle. Not fast but not slow either.

Mobile friendly

Mobile first is the call every business depended on the internet is embracing. So I wanted to analyze how mobile friendly are the websites built on Strikingly in this Strikingly review. I tested a bunch of sample sites  Strikingly works well on cell phones, and tablets and themes are mobile friendly.

SEO

With Strikingly website builder you can customize your URL’s, edit meta tags, meta descriptions, and write alt descriptions for images. You can also add a favicon and social images. Integrating with Google Webmaster Tools, generating sitemap and submitting it is all very easy with Strikingly. If you are stuck with those things, they have very clear guides on them as well.

Integration

Compared to other big website builders, the app marketplace of Strikingly is quite small, but they have some much-needed integrations readily available for you to embed them into your site. Some of them are free, and some are paid. With Strikingly website, you can integrate Live Chat Software, Maps, forms, subscription modules, Google Analytics, Universal Analytics, Google Webmaster Tool, Facebook Pixel Id and LinkedIn and more social media sites

Features

Coming to feature section, Strikingly, in its Pro Plan have some decent features. Here I tried to explain a few features which I felt are interesting.

App: Strikingly has a mobile app for Apple mobile devices, with which you can manage your store and website on the go.

E-Commerce Store: With Pro Plan, you can manage a small store with 300 products using Strikingly. If you are planning have such a small store, Strikingly would be a better and cheaper option compared to other big store managers like Shopify. Unlike them, Strikingly won’t charge for transactions. Additionally, they have readily integrated Paypal and Stripe for receiving payments.

Restore: By just pressing ctrl+Z you can restore blocks after deleting them. However, there is no way to restore an entire page or site after you delete them.

Blogging: When using Strikingly as a blog you can publish posts, and you can also send out newsletters but you cannot schedule blog posts, and you don’t have many other options for editing. The blogging options aren’t impressive by any means, but they aren’t terrible either.

Interactivity: The options for interactivity on Strikingly are a little on the limited side. There is no way to create popups for your audience as a way to interact with them more, and there is also no way to provide membership for your audience. The primary interactivity tool that is offered is the comment section. People can leave comments as they please as a way to reach out to whoever published the content on the site.

Multiple Websites

While using Strikingly, you can make multiple websites using one account which is great. You can build personal websites, blogs, business websites, portfolio websites, startup websites, websites that are just for fun, websites that are used to sell products, event websites and organization websites.

Pros And Cons

Pros:

Simple and Easy

Easy to create Landing page type of websites

Paypal and Stripe Integrated for Store

Cheaper Option for small stores without transaction charges

Cool Features in Pro Plan

Cons

Limited Themes

Limited Integrations

Only one Pricing plan is worth buying

Slow Loading Speed

Perfect only for single page websites

Limitations on number of pages

Support

As far as support goes on Strikingly, there is no Skype option for support, but they do offer answers to questions via email, telephone, and live chat. It took a little over a minute to begin the live chat conversation which I thought was pretty good.

Time for setting up a website

Before concluding my opinion on this website builder, I want to mention one more point in this Strikingly review. That is time taken for setting up a website. Setting up a website with Strikingly will take you anywhere from one to two hours which is pretty quick setup time. But, the main reason for short setup time is that the website builder is simple and doesn’t have many options to work around. So, this is not necessarily a good thing.

Conclusion

In conclusion, I feel, though Strikingly website builder is relatively limited and rudimentary, it’s simple and unsophisticated. All in all, I probably wouldn’t recommend this website builder to the general public. Most people who are wanting to build their site are looking to take full advantage of the customization aspect of website building. Web sites are highly aesthetic and often, people want very specific and modern looks, and for this reason, most wouldn’t want to use this particular builder. However, there may be a few people who are looking for a very basic website builder and want something easy, quick and cheap. In this case, Strikingly website builder could potentially fit their needs. More Specifically, it is an option for people looking to build a single page or few pages website.

P.S: This review is an opinion of one expert web developer. If it is not convincing to trust just one person’s opinion, you can scroll up and check numerous Strikingly reviews done by real Strikingly for real business websites and blogs.

Price

Strikingly offers three different price options. They have different products for different needs. They offer a free plan with which you can create a strikingly.com domain, Limited Plan which costs $12 per month and Pro Plan that starts at $20 per month. All these plans have discounts when bought annually and for a 2-year term. Along with free option to create a website with 5GB bandwidth, Strikingly also offers 14 days free trial on all paid plans. There aren’t any additional charges for extras while using their product either. Strikingly pricing notably less compared to other website builders.If you are planning to use this website builder, I suggest using PRO Plan which provides you all the features the software can offer. There is another plan named “Limited Plan” which comes with very few features. You can see the list of all features in each plan in the following pic.Visit Pricing Page

    I never built a website in my life until I discovered Strikingly. I used to pay web designers huge money to work on my site which was originally launched in 1998. Now I have built 5 sites for friends and clients. Fun and Easy to use–Strikingly is the Best!

    Really impressed with both the ongoing development and support from Strikingly. I even had one of the co-founders working on javascript with me. It’s not the cheapest option out there and its possibly not the most flexible in having endless options but because of themes, templates and support it’s the best.

    I used WordPress.com sites for many years, then switched to Strikingly.com. I use my own domain registered elsewhere. You can build a site for free, but for less than $20/month I can build 3 unbranded (i.e. no Strikingly branding) sites under the ‘Pro’ plan that gives you access to every feature. Strikingly is very easy-to-use and very flexible. The platform used to be able to create only ‘one pagers’ like mine, but that changed months ago; you can now create a standard, multi-page site if you want. Personally, I like the one pager, though. It’s the things you don’t notice right away that can make all the difference, too, such as the ability to, with a click of the mouse, darken/lighten your images and text in a section for the best effect. It makes the difference between looking just OK and looking stunning. I’ve had several comments about how good it looks. You can see my main project here: http://www.israeltruthweek.org to judge for yourself. I’m not a coder at all, so this is all Strikingly, not me. I like that they’re always trying to improve. For example: users like me were asking for the ability to simply hide a created section instead of deleting it, and they listened! As noted above, you can also now create a multi-page site. The only negative for some people might be that they’re based in China, but you’d never know it; their English is as good as the platform. I’ve tested other builders, but Strikingly is really impressive. 5 stars in each category. Finally, I don’t work for them and I don’t benefit financially in any way from recommending them.

    I tried various platforms @ 18 months ago – and by far the best was Strikingly. These platform tests were from the perspective of not only of my own sites (I run a few businesses) – but also with a view of migrating all my client sites across. The main criteria I tested on was : Knowledge and responsiveness of support Web compliance capability Price competitiveness Since subscribing I have received nothing but reliability, fantastic support and added features – without any price hikes either. I am also able to pass on lower culmulative fees for my services as I can split account fees with effective pricing plans – which is winning me more business through word of mouth

    The most impressive thing about Strikingly to me is literally how fast I can set up a website with site security. It is amazing! For the beginner, it is easy to navigate. If you get stuck, no problem. You can chat with their support who are called Happiness Officers. They are not kidding when they say that. I have used Strikingly a long time. Their team is nothing but professional and strive for the best customer service. Pricing is fair to the industry standard. They are transparent with pricing, which is important. There literally are no hidden fees. What you see is what you get. The templating is super easy to understand. The themes are constantly updated. If you sign up for their newsletter, you will learn tips, tricks and new things they have added. That is important. There have been times where new things were done such as the SSL (your green lock on all sites letting your visitors know your site is safe). They let customers know this was available now for FREE. That’s a game changer considering Google, who controls much of the search, is now requiring the SSL. Websites with Strikingly are already made Responsive which means they look great on Smart phones and tablets. You can put in custom code or add a shopping cart. There are many integrations while also making it very beautiful. You can also add your own company colors and upload fonts. The dashboard is very light and clean. As a designer, I must have a clean interface with not too much going on. I can’t wait to see what they come up with next!

    I am extremely happy with Strikingly and highly recommend their website builder whether your site is for personal pleasure or business related. From a functionality aspect Strikingly is extremely user friendly, much easier to navigate than any other builder i have used. The templates and images provided are also very modern/trendy, which allows you to create a competitive site in this day and age. I experienced very minimal issues and their support team was readily available every step of the way. People consistently compliment our website, thanks to Strikingly we didn’t spend $5k+ on a professional company to provide a similar product.

    We have the professional package, which means for a flat monthly fee we have 3 business oriented websites we can get hosted via strikingly. This was a huge feature for us. Since we have 2 (both accessible from each location) currently, one includes a blog, and we are incorporating other features over the next coming months, and are working on a third site, as well. From a pricing point it is great. We have both sites registered off-site, but strikingly will handle that for you as well, if you choose. The Themes are being added to regularly, so it is a growing library. The template is ok, there is a great deal of flexibility within the template and within various fields. The ability to add custom code is limited, realistically, it’s not a bad idea because many users that want this service want it because they don’t know how to code. In our case it was simply time to market, not anything else. Support we only had to work with a couple of times, it’s not great, since it is all done via email. But, again, we only had some minor issues and they were resolved. Pricing, as I said, we have a professional package with allows us 3 business sites. We found this to be a great option. Will we be moving to a custom site, of our own design, in the future. Quite possibly. For now, this works, and requires little maintenance on our end. We would recommend Strikingly for sure.

    I’ve been using Strikingly for almost 4 years. I chose it because I was looking for a professional look and feel for my websites but algo a very easy and quick way to edit and make changes without any technical knowledge. I’ve found easier platforms that don’t look as good as Strikingly and also better looking templates in platforms that are not as easy to use. Strikingly has a very good balance between these two characteristics. Also, the few times I’ve had issues, support has been fast and efficient.

    Love Stirkingly. I’ve used it for the last 3 years and have made about 12-15 sites on it. The multi page options, varied themes, video backgrounds, are some of the better features on strikingly. Their support has always been prompt & very helpful.

    Honestly: I love it. I have about 11 websites published on my account. It’s so easy and smooth. I think I like the smoothness of the editor and the final website. Like, I also have websites built on Squarespace (a bit choppy.. even a published website on a mobile is choppy when scrolling quickly), Shopify (feels a bit heavy), and Simvoly (I think that’s what it’s called).. I’m building two sites on Wix now and so far, for me, second favorite. My number 1 choice is Strikingly still.. my go-to platform. Are there some features I’d like to see? Sure. Options provide freedom to create. But nothing beats how smooth it is for me.

    I have personally used Strikingly for many, many years. I may have been one of the first agencies in Manchester or even the UK to do so. As we train startups how to do digital marketing then Strikingly is perfect for them. It’s quick and easy to use and has more and more functions they are adding. They could do more from an SEO POV to make it easier for Google and so it isn’t perfect as you can’t do everything I would want to for free. But they don’t put advertising on the sites and so – why should /how could it be perfect in the free mode? It doesn’t have the depth of other site builders out there i.e. the massive wordpress etc. But it isn’t for those kind of sites. They have always listen to our points and got back to us. Even as the orgnisation has got bigger and bigger. In conclusion: We not only use the site professionally for our own business – we recommend it to everyone of our clients who is starting up. Fair play to David and his colleagues – nicely done on all the work and congratulations on sourcing the funding to make Strikingly better and better.

    I was immediately impressed with Strikingly and its founders from the time they launched. It’s only gotten better! It is clear that the founders were and are committed to delivering the very best tools and experiences to their customers. As a non-technical marketing and sales person, Strikingly made it easy for me to build a great looking, personalized website and when I needed help, there was always a real live person responding via the chat tool. Unfortunately, Personal Health Cloud wasn’t successful, but I think Strikingly will be around for a long time delivering delightful experiences to their customers and their customers!

    Let’s face it, it’s the 21st Century and the need for outsourcing website development is so 2010. What we like about Strikingly is the versatility to be able to make changes, in real-time, as we go through the unpredictable environment of running a non-profit, and, without having to relay information to third-party developers, which is really an unnecessary amount of time doing the back-and-forth-to-get-it-right dance. Strikingly is always evolving, constantly improving, and a simple DIY plug-and-play platform for the start-up, entrepreneur, or company in boot-strap mode. The added advantage, is when your able to hire skilled labor, Strikingly has fully integrated html, so you can truly make your site one of a kind. We recommend Strikingly above all other web hosting services, especially if you don’t want your site to be stagnant waiting on someone else to update your informations. Hope this helps.

    Strikingly saves you the most time when building, designing, editing and managing any website, whether it’s your personal website, business site or client site. Time = money, and that’s why despite lacking in certain areas like limited themes/templates and maybe a few e-commerce limitations, if you can build it on Strikingly from the beginning you will be in good hands. Their support team is very timely in their communications and will often help with custom code and development issues in a matter of 24-48 tops. Not having phone support isn’t very nice, but most website builders do not have reliable phone support so that’s an overall industry issue rather than a Strikingly one. The “blocks” format of adding and creating new content on the go is a timesaver/lifesaver and new advanced style options for menus, coloring and text puts it right up there with the top builders due to user friendliness, price and customer support. Full Disclosure: I use Strikingly for nearly all of my client websites as a digital media agency as well as my own business website. It is because I truly feel they are the best solution after spending years using others such as Squarespace, Weebly, Wix, etc. Cheers! -Chris

    After browsing many of the popular website template design services, I came across Strikingly. I liked the range of templates that were available to customize my website to fit my own personality and business. I am no computer programmer, but I do have a fair bit of technical knowledge and can normally figure out programs like that quickly. The editing process of Strikingly makes it very easy to populate your website and design it however you want. While it is a template-based system and there are some restrictions on what can be done, overall I found it very straightforward to add and change information as necessary. There are plenty of stock images and media if you’re lacking for your own, or you can add as much custom media as you’d like. The best thing I can say about using Strikingly is that it allowed me to easily build and publish a professional looking website in a few hours and update myself as necessary, something that would cost significantly more time and money if I paid a professional developer to do so. I have gotten numerous compliments on my website, and I always get a sense of pride when I tell clients that I made it myself. Very glad I found Strikingly!

    Excellent service and updates. There may be options with more out of the box integrations but for an easy to use, visually slick, good value and frequently updated/improved service with really responsive help (eg: ended up with one of the founders helping me troubleshoot some of my javascript!) I haven’t found a better option.

    Strikingly is a great starter website for startups. It’s easy to use and deploy. Most importantly, their support staff is always ready to help.

    I used Strikingly for more than a year. I wanted something that has a good mainstream design. It does. And actually it proved better when I started to use it from the inside than what I expected. Many good designs to choose from. Other things like ease of use and understandability is there too – I just don’t have anything to add. I had a small technical issue which they fixed right away and the guys have been friendly – which I enjoy everywhere. Yes, and they kept on adding new stuff, which is cool I think. I can clrearly see they are motivated to give really good value. You won’t be disappointed for sure if you choose to use it.

    I started using Strikingly in 2014 for a simple personal site.. Having been in the internet industry for 25 years, with a lot of experience in building websites (Java/ColdFusion/WordPress etc) I like the ease of use which Strikingly offers. The templates offered are more than sufficient for the average website. I particularly like the integration with domain services, which in the beginning was a bit awkward. I often use the BLOG section, which is simple but efficient. If you want value for money – use Strikingly!

    My Strikingly website was so easy to build. The system used my LinkedIn profile to build the site and then I just had to “tweek” it for any changes that I wanted to make. Those changes were very simple to do. I just followed the easy to understand directions, made and saved the edits and then saved the new site. Once I was satisfied, I hit the Publish button and I was done. The editing process was very simple with easy to understand directions. I merely had to type the copy and everything was done for me. Adding links to other websites was very simple. Again, all I needed to do was to follow very simple instructions. The website has required no maintenance and I’ve only made a few changes the past couple of years. My Strkingly website has been very well received and I get good visitor traffic. It provides me with a very professional online presence from very little effort or expense.

    I really love working with Strikingly, you can do anything you can imagine, and if you don’t know you can get some help inside the website, you can talk to real people and they are really really nice. As I pay all together it is a little bit expensive for me, but it is worth it.

    Strickingly is an easy to use platform with sleek designs for any purpose you have. They have easy rates that help you build multiple sites in one place. The site management is easy with a plug and play concept. I’ve used their platform for two years and they are hard a work making the platform better everyday. They have a great customer service team that helps when needed and makes great suggestions as to how to solve development problems. Great platform and great people.

    Strikingly is easy to use and provides a lot of flexibility for the user. Building multiple websites has been as easy as creating a Word document. When I first built my website I had no idea what to do and Strikingly made it simple and fun. I’ve created 3 websites on Strikingly and I recommend them to anyone who thinks it’s too difficult to build your own website!

    I have been building websites ever since Marc Andreessen released Mosaic as his University project. Worked with Java, ColdFusion and more recently WordPress. In the end, I’ve fallen in love with Strikingly. It delivers, is easy to use for 90% of the web sites and the graphics are really nice. The blog section has recently improved tremendously which makes Strikingly even more complete. We’ve suggested to several ICO projects to use Strikingly instead of WordPress because it is more secure… The templates they provide are sufficient for most users, but you’re free and given the flexibility to change the template anyway you see fit. The mobile version is HTML5 and looks good and is responsive. Overall I can really recommend Strikingly. Alex

    We have been using Strikingly for the past 4-5 years and have used other website builders in the past. We have come to trust them so much that we build customer sites with them. We are transparent with our clients and educate them on the reason why we prefer the platform. It is easy to use, can be used with other applications and real time editing. Only snag is font flexibility and limitations on colour a for themes but as a design agency we have been able to work around this and if you are into html coding you can tweak the back end. This is sometimes not available with other website builders. What we also love about them is their use of feedback! They listen and give them a few months, an update with a suggestion you made is available! Now with mobile been the primary screen for users, we are happy how their websites are mobile, tablet and web ready. No need to adjust anything yourself! I could go on about why we love Strikingly but we highly recommend this platform for starters and veterans in design industry alike!

    The reason why I purchase Strikingly pro version is I want to make a portfolio on my work and a personal site (laugh). Today’s Strikingly is much like a better version of WordPress.That’s very good I really hate finding templates in WordPress. My favorite thing in Strikingly is that they can track Facebook and Instagram. If they can offer Weibo trackers that will be fantastic.However, I’m really not satisfied Striking are lacking some fonts for Mandarin/Japanese users like source-Han-Sans. All in all, If you need a site to display yourself like a resume/showing products or the company, Strikingly will be the best choice. If you want to make your website like a gallery, WordPress still works.

    I’ve run blogs and websites on WordPress, Wix, and Strikingly. Strikingly sites look the best based on my tastes. I love the clean, simple, one page look. There are great options for themes, the tools are easy to use. I feel like WordPress is a little more SEO friendly, but based on style and how easy Strikingly is, I highly recommend.

    Strikingly is our go-to for websites and we recommend it to of clients. They offer instant support, pricing is perfect, templates are simple to use and modify. It is also a breeze to switch themes with the ability to preview before you do. They are open to ideas and have could do with more flexibility for us as a design agency.

    I have been a Strikingly user since 2014 and I have never been happier with a website builder. Strikingly is one of the most stable, scalable platforms I have ever been on – and I am completely thrilled with the themes and customizations available. I have had few occasions to get in touch with Support, but when I have, they are very prompt with their response, and they have fixed any issues I had at the beginning. It is a great comfort to know that my website is humming along nicely and I can spend my time working for my clients.

    Strikingly is a ridiculously easy service to use. Everything is clean and easy to organize as well as being easy to navigate for first timers and easy to upgrade for people with a bit more coding experience. If you’re on a premium subscription you can add HTML sections as well as e-commerce sections but the basic subscriptions will still get you a really beautiful website. I have hosted my websites through Strikingly for several years now and the simplicity of a single page website is beyond appealing. The long scroll of their webpages is not only easy to navigate for my visitors but also easy to edit, and I don’t feel at a loss for what to fill up the space on each page with. The different sections are easy to divide without having to fluff them up unnecessarily. My complaints are all minor and include simply that the menu disappears on some templates once you scroll below the first block as well as the behind the scenes organization of photos can be difficult to navigate. Pricing is good, and referrals will earn you free months of service.
