  • We believe in order for your site to be successful with traffic, you’ll need the Pro plan to allow social media sharing, mobile action buttons, enabled custom HTML code and more. However, if you are looking for a great looking branding website for your business card, the Limited plan may be your perfect fit! However, we find $8/mo for a single-page website, no matter how awesome it looks, to be quite expensive. We also feel the Srikingly branding should be removed on all paid plans.

  • Despite its lack of robust web tools, I like Strikingly for its simplicity. I can’t say it competes with Wix, Weebly or any other website builder. It’s just different.

  • The benefits of Strikingly are impressive, because it makes the process of building a website both easy and enjoyable to those with limited experience – or no experience at all. Considering its competitive prices and scalability, Strikingly is an ideal option for anyone interested in a simple, responsive design.

    Facebook could be used for many different purposes: communicating with friends and acquaintances, receiving news and links to interesting materials. But often Facebook is used for business purposes (for contacting with the right people, storing examples of your work, career history and so on). In short, you can use Facebook page as your own resume. But it is preferable to have resume in the form of a single website containing all the information that may interest an employer or potential business partner. Strikingly is the online website builder that allows you to create a separate website based on the information from your Facebook profile. This site can include including work info, interests, photos, videos, and more. Thus, Strikingly can make such a website in literally one click. Just enter the username and password of your Facebook page and click on the relevant button. The result can be easily edited by adding and removing blocks, changing the information in them. Strikingly also creates a mobile version of the site optimized for tablets and smartphones. Moreover, the optimization concerns not only design but also functionality. So, a tap on a phone number opens the Phone app, and the tap on the map runs the Map app. But using the Facebook page is not the only option for site creation. It is possible to make the web page from scratch using the templates gallery. Here is the visual editor that helps to edit the background, to change the site structure, to add or remove the pages, to add the content, to add the pages description. Note that the majority of advanced features, e.g. own code insertion, SEO optimization, using the own domain, etc. are available only for the paid users.

    Pros :

    • Building the website from Facebook page.
    • Great mobile optimization for all the templates.

    Cons :

    • Strikingly branding is not removed from all premium plans.

    I helped a client build a landing page using Strikingly. I liked how elegant the designs are and the extent of customization with the built in tools.

    Pros :

    • Elegant designs.
    • Built in tools.
    • Dark background for the tools is easier on the eyes when staring at the screen for hours on end.

    Cons :

    Takes a little getting used to, but relatively easy for a more experienced developer.
