We didn’t expect an extensive list of features with Strikingly as they only offer one page websites; you can upload your own content, enable different sections within your website, and make changes to the website’s design.
If you’re a blogger, Strikingly’s blogging allows you to add a blog section to your page, including images, videos, call-to-action buttons, and quotes. Similar to the website builder you can drag and drop features and sections within your blog, customising how your blog looks, including social media and SEO functions.
For ecommerce users, you’ll have access to the Simple Store, enabling sections within your website and adding products as and when you need them. As expected, you can select and setup your desired payment method and customise information on the dashboard. Surprisingly, Strikingly does not charge a transaction fee for any of your purchases; this is very pleasing for us to see! Bear in mind, however, even on the Pro plan; you can only sell up to 20 products on your website.
Strikingly’s support is a little lacklustre, with only the option to email them or check their help centre. Their help centre is very useful, offering a plethora of knowledge base articles, forums, and more. In all honesty, as there aren’t many features on offer with Strikingly, the lack of customer support didn’t affect us too much, however, it’s always nice to have the option to speak to someone there and then. The support offered via email was helpful, and the staff all seemed extremely friendly, answering our queries in a timely manner.
The help centre is helpfully laid out in categories, so it’s simple to find the answer within a short space of time, unlike other knowledge base’s we’ve come across, so this was a glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel.
