website builder – Jimdo Website Builder 2017 – Top Tens

The Jimdo Pro site builder sits near the top tier of website builders based on its ease of use. This service may not have every necessary feature, but it is worth a look because it has a refined dashboard that is easy to use whether you’re creating a new site or editing your mobile website.

Summary

This website creator provides over 100 templates that can be customized to match your specific business. The drag-and-drop format makes for quick editing of your site. For example, once you upload a photo, you can align and resize it right on the page. You can also align uploaded videos or audio tracks on the page. Jimdo does not have a proprietary stock photo gallery from which you can choose semiprofessional photos that represent your business.

Most of the themes you choose when you build your website are responsive, meaning you can transfer content from one template to another without starting from scratch. However, once you sign with Jimdo, you can’t export the code from the website it hosts to another service.

Jimdo???s Pro package allows you to use a first-party shopping cart, which is surprisingly rare for this size of plan. The cart provides space for up to 15 products. PayPal inclusion is also a part of this plan. While you don’t get any advertising credits with this plan, you can still optimize your site with meta tags and search engine submission.

Jimdo structures its support quality based on the package you purchase. With the Pro plan, you get higher priority than lower plans, but it’s still not the highest priority. We found its email support to be very responsive and timely, only taking a few hours to respond to our concerns.

Jimdo doesn’t have every feature under the sun, but it’s one of the top-ranking services in terms of usability. It isn’t difficult to build a website that looks professional and customized. Even though it’s missing features, we still enjoyed using its dashboard. The responsive themes and shopping cart help it compete well among the top site-builder services.
