Weebly for content management sites

6 replies
I have a client that wants to create sites in weebly for customers. He wants to use weebly because 1. It is easy to use, 2. Provides the hosting and 3. He can hand the sites over to the clients once finished and show them how to manage themselves with their own log in.

My questions are:

Is weebly any good for this purpose and also developing sites that will make affiliate money. Anyone out there having success with ranking weebly sites?

What are some other options for designing content management sites that can be handed over to clients to manage once designed.

Thanks in Advance

Peter

    I always prefer wordpress..

    What you can do is show the back office of wordpress and show some template of wordpress than he will understand that wordpress is much easier than weebly.

    I hope this helps..

    I have used and set up weebly for clients and have no problems at all, with a bit of work it comes up really well, is flexible allows for editors has mobile apps and just about the whole box n dice.

    It is not for everything but for easy log in / cms it does work for the average maw n paw and more. / even set it for clickbank products / site for a client and it done the job really well.

    What?! Did you take him as asking about their free hosting, Mike?! Surely not?

    Weebly is no more going to delete a site hosted there than Hostgator is.

    Yes; Weebly is a very good and much underrated host. I have successful sites now in their 4th year of hosting there, and happily recommend Weebly.

    Yes. Why not? How a site ranks has nothing to do with what software it's made from or (with very occasional geo-specific exceptions) where it's hosted.

      I'm going to echo Alexa on this one.

      Weebly has VERY inexpensive hosting fees, is VERY user-friendly, and you can use your own domain, etc.

      Also rank as well as a WP site.

      Thanks for your response Alexa

      Having used weebly before would you know if it is possible to change the text of the navigation bar in the standard selection of weebly themes?
      Also can you make the Title area at the top dissapear?
      and thirdly have you ever used or purchased any more advanced themes and could you recommend any sellers?

      Thanks in advance

    Weebly sites can absolutely rank! In fact, my ghostwriting services website ranks #2 on page one of Google for the term "ghostwriting services," and has now moved up to page one for the keyword phrase "seo content writing" as well.

    I also have other affiliate sites built on weebly that do very well. I don't know how others will feel about buying those sites, but I can assure you they DO rank
