Strikingly is a website builder that allows the user, with little or no development experience, to create mobile optimized websites “within minutes”. The company takes a mobile-first approach, allowing users to create websites that are enhanced for viewing across all devices including desktops, tablets, and smartphones.
I have done a 1-page website within 1 hour. I love this tool as it is simple to use and create.
It’s not ideal for complex websites, but Strikingly’s free plan includes some great basic features, making it popular with bloggers and freelancers. That said, you might find the one-page design and basic level of customization limiting if you have grand plans for your site.
If you want to use a personalized domain name, you’ll need one of Strikingly’s three premium plans, which range from $8 to $49 per month (billed annually).
While Strikingly has its strong points, our latest round of in-house research indicates the builder has been left behind in the rapidly evolving website builder space. Unlike its predecessor in this list, SITE123, Strikingly has poor sitespeed performance (in fact, it’s the worst!).
Strikingly is also the only platform our research recognizes as “poor”, and dismally underperforms against its top competitors by a whole 48%.
In terms of SEO Singapore, it ranks the worst among all of the website builder.
