Versatile Platform for Building Personal Portfolio Website

Overall I would like to say that Jimdo is very best for a personal portfolio website where you can add your work or experience to show your work to the clients.

But for blogging, that platform is not suitable because there are a lot of technical functions that is not available in Jimdo.

Jimdo allows me to quickly create content and maintain my website from any browser.

Jimdo help me run my small business. Their site tools are quick and accessible. Their store option is easy to create and link to Paypal for orders, payment and store organization. I can easily change my template for new look to my site. Jimdo sites look good on phone browsers, which is not always the case with websites. Their phone app allows access to some site edits and monitoring site traffic volume and type. I have used other competitor services, but found Jimdo is the most intuitive, easiest to access and tune for q unique look, and most cost effective.

RUN from this company!

They e-mailed me with instructions to view and pay my invoice via my online account.
The invoice would not pull up.
I emailed them. They repeated what I had already tried. I asked for a phone number to speak with someone. They "do not have a phone number".
Just "take a picture of the screen from your dashboard and send it to us" was their response.
The screen is non existent because they removed my account due to "non payment".
They then send an email stating it is coming up for renewal NEXT MONTH.
They also have threatened to turn me over to a collection agency.
I told them to mail me the invoice since I no longer have an account to pull it up.
I won't hold my breath. I do not think they would even know how to mail an invoice.
They are inept.

Jimdo Review

Jimdo is still a great site to learn how to create and manage a website. Just wish they were not making the change mentioned above.

Overall I would like to say that Jimdo is very best for a personal portfolio website where you can add your work or experience to show your work to the clients.

But for blogging, that platform is not suitable because there are a lot of technical functions that is not available in Jimdo.

Pros

The most features I like in Jimdo are as below:

1) First of all, when I am signing up with Jimdo, It's very fast and easy to sign up within a minute.
2) The making of a website is very easy and simple to use platform.
3) I am in an e-commerce business also so I need to integrate which manage my orders and they provide e-commerce functionality too.

Cons

There is something that I don't like in Jimdo are as below:

1) Their plans are quite costly and start from 9$ per month and in that they provide basic features.
2) we integrate with e-commerce functionality but there are a lot of technical functions right now use in internet marketing that doesn't provide by Jimdo.
3) There is no option to optimize page with SEO like sitemap, open graph setting, etc.

Pros

Jimdo is a great website creator and host. Their menus are easy to learn and get started. You can start a site for free, to see how it goes. There is a great selection of templates to look unique, as well as plenty of opportunities to tune the look with editing and customizing colors, text ,and layouts. Picture uploads got a lot easier, with the ability to edit them. To access/edit your site, simply type your site with /login as a suffix from any browser and you're in. I wanted to change my website name, and the change was flawless. Annual costs are reasonable compared to other services. I had been a GoDaddy user for a couple of years before, and hated their hidden high costs and cumbersome editor.

Cons

Template sites do limit how a site will look, but I'm not a coder, so the templates suit my site well as a small business. I wish they had more fonts, like Microsoft Word.

Pros

N/A
Their customer service is so inept that it retracts from anything good I could say about the software.

Cons

Again, N/A
They could have a great product, but it is just average.
However that is secondary to the fact they have terrible customer service.

Pros

Product was purchased for a small band that did not last long at all. One Year purchased and website set up.

Purchase and set up was very easy.

Cons

When one year purchase was advised as due for renewal I contacted the company to say i no longer needed the site. I was told I was too late in spite of replying on day of email to me. To make it worse they wanted a 300% increase in price. I offered to pay another year at the original amount in spite of not needed site. Was met with legal threats. They need to be reminded that sales may get a profit in one year but service provides for ongoing profit.

For a highly rated company they have lost their customer focus.

I am temped to declare bankruptcy to make sure that do get nothing.

Jimdo is still a great site to learn how to create and manage a website. Just wish they were not making the change mentioned above.

Pros

Jimdo is a great tool to use to create a free website that you can practice on. I have used it for a while and I love that the domain authority is really high even for a brand new site like mine was.

Cons

A few days ago I received an email saying that in the new year Jimdo will be replacing all of their old free websites from .jimdo to .jimdofree and they will be migrating all of their existing sites to the new format. The new domain authority is much lower
