Strikingly Review 2017

3.0

Summary

Strikingly is a website builder is competent but clumsy. It comes packed with most of the features you would expect from a modern website builder, even if some of those features are frustrating to use.

The major disappointment you will find about this product is the editor itself. It does not sport the modern seamless drag & drop experience we have become accustomed to in leading website builders. If ease of use is important to you, we recommend looking elsewhere.

Experience

Templates

Strikingly has a good number of great starter templates for most business requirements. The layouts can be altered within the editor and so too the order of sections.

Onboarding

There is a nice visual walk-through of the editor as soon as you selected a template. The walk through runs you through the major features of the editor and highlights the features as it steps through the process.

Mobile

Mobile is supported but not as simple to edit as one would expect. You can fairly easily switch to a mobile preview within the editor though.

Drag and drop

This is the most disappointing part of the editor. It practically does not support drag & drop.

Integration

Very rudimentary support for integrations. Not nearly as comprehensive as it’s competitors in the market.

Publication

You can publish your website directly to a domain fairly easily from within the application.


Customer Support

Strinkingly has a decent knowledge base that you can use to solve your own issues. If you need to speak to a human they have 24/7 livechat through the purple support widget in your dashboard and editor.


The free plan packs a lot of value for the personal user. The limited and pro plans are good value at a good price point.
