Website Builder Reviews

Building a website online has never been easier and to help you make the right choice for your business I've reviewed and compared what I consider to be the best cloud based online website builders and pointed out the major features of each one.

Shopify is the most popular platform for eCommerce retailers. It is straightforward to use and has many advanced features like EPOS integration and abandoned cart recovery.

BigCommerce trails as far as popularity goes but with global offices in Sydney and Austin, Texas it is rapidly gaining favour and recently completed a further $41 million funding round to improve the product.

Lemonstand is the new kid on the block and is for those who want to make something much better than an "out of the box" solution and whilst it is not wildly more expensive than the other two in terms of cost per month, you'll probably need a developer to help to make the most of it. For UK users EKMPowershop is the most popular choice.

Good Luck With Your eCommerce Project!

I've been asked a few times if I can recommend an eLearning website builder and so I've included TalentLMS into the growing directory. This software has over 500,000 users and 2,000 registered customers. Compliance training is becoming big business and keeping staff up to date with the latest information is a big time resource hog. TalentLMS is a cloud based eLearning platform that enables tutors to train employees, partners, customers or students. In fact anyone that needs training can take an online course and improve their knowledge on a subject. ...

EKM eCommerce Website Builder Overview An eCommerce website builder conceived in a back bedroom, back in 2002, EKM lays claim to fame as the most popular UK eCommerce solution with 1 in 5 eCommerce websites powered by its software and over 30,000 users. Recent price increases (which come into effect in October 2016) have annoyed existing customers who have been with the service a long time and that's something I'll come on to a bit later but at first glance EKM looks like a solid performer and a great choice for budding UK...

A couple of days ago a friend asked if I could build them a website. I pointed them in the direction of the website design price list to which they replied “I was thinking more GoDaddy prices!” So let's find out exactly what a GoDaddy website builder can do and what you get for your money. First of all lets have a quick recap of what GoDaddy is: GoDaddy Overview Established in 2007 GoDaddy is the worlds largest domain registration and web hosting service...

Zoey eCommerce Website Builder Overview The eCommerce marketplace is ripe for consolidation and there will soon be a round of mergers and acquisitions as the market matures. It's becoming dog eat dog as one after the other Shopify, BigCommerce, 3dCart et al offer “special plans” to migrate away from the resource hog and money pit that is Magento to a more easily managed cloud based eCommerce solution. The advantages are many but the key factor is fixed monthly cost which “Free” Open Source protagonists tend to gloss over in their...

3Dcart Overview 3Dcart was established in 1997 (3Dcart 1.0 was released in 2000) and is one of the most robust and well rounded hosted eCommerce website builders on the market. Magento may have more features but 3Dcart is easier to use and easier to setup. You'll also have the security of knowing that you'll be paying a fixed fee every month whereas with Magento you will continually be paying developer fees for patches and fixes which can often make things worse and costs can spiral out of control. I'm comparing 3Dcart with Magento...

Lemonstand eCommerce Overview Originally developed as a licensed server based eCommerce solution in 2010, Lemonstand has quickly moved with the times and in 2014 it made the move to a cloud based solution. They now offer a cloud based product similar to Shopify and Bigcommerce. However where the former cater essentially to the mainstream market, Lemonstand provides a fully customisable solution with unlimited flexibility. This means that you can shape the checkout process to be exactly how you want it and integrate the whole shopping experience flawlessly with your blog...

Volusion eCommerce Website Builder Overview Volusion was established in 1999 and with almost 17 years eCommerce development experience under their belt you would expect them to be good at what they do. With a massive seven year head start on Bigcommerce, five on Shopify and a following wind they should be the clear market leader. Interestingly the earliest recorded entry for the Volusion.com website on archive.org is April 6th 2004 The fact that they are not lies in growing pains from implementing a massive data network capable of hosting a...

Wix Website Builder Review Wix.com is a cloud based online website builder that lets you create beautiful, professional and functional websites without needing to know a line of code. The companies growth has been remarkable. From its small beginnings in 2006 Wix passed 1 million users in 2009 and in 2014 passed 50 million users. That is phenomenal growth by anyone's standards and with new technology in the pipeline there is no reason to suspect that growth is going to stall anytime soon. I put Wix Website Builder through...

BigCommerce Shopping Cart Software In my Shopify review I give you all the reasons why it is a great choice for building an online store. However there are alternatives and BigCommerce is the closest competitor to Shopify. Both have various strengths and weaknesses and in this review we'll identify why you should choose one over the other. Hopefully I'll give you good reasons to choose so that you don't waste time testing something that won't fulfil your final site requirements. BigCommerce claims that sites using its software grow 2x faster...
