CMS Review

Somewhat okay experience. I use and recommend it for simple websites. Again, decent templates i.e. standard with what's offered in the market but not extraordinary - Designs are very important in the eyes of the beholder

This easy-to-use but limited page builder isn't a good value

I wasn't impressed with Zoho Sites, especially since I recently evaluated most of the big names in this market. In terms of power and flexibility, Zoho Sites comes in dead last. It's OK maybe if you're already using Zoho CRM but I can't think of any reason to jump ship for it.

Easy Website Builder

Using zoho sites, I've managed to publish a working e-commerce site. I'm not IT trained, so this is great and it helps my business to grow.

Reasonable web site creating platform that suffers from lack of flexibility

The block-based design allowed me to create a more modern website experience for the church but the free tools were admittedly lacking in flexibility and functionality. Knowing what I know now, I might have recommended a WordPress-based build instead because it had greater possibility for scaling upwards without incurring large costs.

Pros

The platform is easy to use, althoug it requires a little bit of IT background. The app features a well structured website building process that goes far beyond other competitors. It has a well suited website gallery, with many options and ideas. The user can also create it own templates, without needed to know much about coding.

I also love the customer support: they're always ready to respond and provide more than one option to solve a case. Then they follow up, personalizing the service, which is great.

Adding widgets is easy and they work just fine. Just following instructions is well enough to perform the operation and if help is needed, Zoho even offers an support option for urgencies.

I've been using Zoho Sites for more than 2 years and feel totally satisfied.

Cons

Zoho Sites does not currently offers the option to load your own HTML website code. You can only change or personalize the original Zoho code, but does not allow us to upload an entire website code.

Pros

Great Value for money as the product offers a low cost subscription (including a free-trial) option. What is powerful is the whole suite of Zoho apps that can be included with Zoho Sites as part of the monthly (or annual) plan. Third party apps can be integrated easily i.e. plug and play.

Cons

1. Zoho Sites does not offer any freemium plan - only trial period.

2. SaaS providers of CMS products are ubiquitous, although Zoho Sites offers decent templates i.e. standard with what's offered in the market, they are not extraordinary - Zoho Sites lacks modern and trendy UX Web designs templates e.g. material designs

I wasn't impressed with Zoho Sites, especially since I recently evaluated most of the big names in this market. In terms of power and flexibility, Zoho Sites comes in dead last. It's OK maybe if you're already using Zoho CRM but I can't think of any reason to jump ship for it.

Pros

I liked that it was very simple and quick to set up a new site, choosing from several decent if cookie-cutter templates.

I liked that forms were included in the trial and in the basic tier. Some page-building SaaSes charge extra for this functionality.

Zoho CRM can be integrated with any site. That's a nice option, I'm sure, although I did not test it since I'm not using Zoho CRM at the moment.

I liked that each new site began a new free trial for that site. Very considerate.

Tweaking existing elements was as simple as hovering to reveal the setting for that particular element. The settings were easy to understand at first glance and in a couple clicks it was easy to adjust them. I've don't recall having seen this sort of UI for any page builder out there.

Cons

Very generic templates. No access to code, css, or for adding advanced functionality. This is not a platform for developers.

The pricing plans were confusing and restrictive. Zoho actually charges for the number of revisions for each page? What? Who else does that? That really turned me off, especially considering how much I tweak when designing. But maybe since the options/settings were limited for each element, that's not such an issue.

Zoho Sites is nowhere near as powerful or complete a package as Wix or Weebly, not to mention Webflow, which is in a different league completely.

Also, I got several e-mails from marketers asking if I needed help. I would think if I don't answer the first time, that's a signal to stop.

Pros

Very easy to use website builder. Easy to integrate other apps into this website builder such as facebook and online stores like. Also their knowledge base is huge and easy to refer to. Zoho also listens to their client's needs and updates their site builder as needed.

Cons

Only problem I'm facing with this site builder is that they do not have an option to publish your website in more than one language.

Knowing what I know now, I might have recommended a WordPress-based build instead because it had greater possibility for scaling upwards without incurring large costs.

Pros

The tools available to organise site structures meant that I could create and link several site pages together seamlessly. I was also able to easily add social media icons on various pages and an embedded Google Map to direct potential visitors.

Cons

The lack of flexibility for page editing in the free product meant that I had to be very careful during the content editing process as it was possible to irretrievably lose large amounts of content and design if I accidentally deleted the wrong design 'block'.
