Lots of recent conversations with friends or family go something like this:
Friend: "Hey Nick, what are you doing for work these days?"
Me: "Running business development at Weebly".
Friend: "What is Weebly?".
Me: "The easiest way to build and manage a website. Try it, you won't believe how great it is".
Friend: "Did I ever tell you how clever and awesome you are. Oh, I am also going to check out Weebly".
I figured it was about time to give my readers a quick overview of Weebly.
Great Team Doing Awesome Stuff
I started working for Weebly full time back in July but have known the founders (Dave, Dan & Chris) for many years. They are great entrepreneurs, compliment each other very well, are building one of the greatest companies ever (in my humble opinion) and are general awesome guys.
The entire team at Weebly is extremely talented and passionate about making website design and management simple and easy, yet powerful and professional. I can't tell you the specifics in this blog post, but we are doing some cool stuff and our produce roadmap is exciting. That's why I joined the team and why the future is bright.
Why I Started Using Weebly (And Why I Love the Product)
Most people know how passionate I am about helping people (small businesses in particular) build their online presence. Back in 2008 I wanted to create a personal blog and website that allowed me to write about my passion for cars. I didn't want to hire a designer or developer since this was just a fun personal project. I tried wordpress initially and while it was easy enough to get started, by the time I tried to configure hosting, set up my domain to point correctly, hunt down a nice theme, upload the theme and try to get it working I was exhausted and had wasted about a week. Then I tried Weebly. It was so simple and easy that I was hooked.
The simple reason I love Weebly is that an idiot like me (with no technical or design skills) can build a great looking, SEO friendly website that I am proud to tell my friends about. I can do it quickly, easily and with a level of customization that makes it unique and professional. And I don't need a team of engineers or designers to get going or to maintain it, it is all under one roof.
Here are some current websites that I have built on Weebly or websites of friends and family who use Weebly:
