Weebly isn't as flexible as Wix and it isn't as sophisticated as Squarespace— but it's easier to use than both. Weebly is what I recommend to anyone who doesn't feel tech savvy.

Now, it's not that Weebly isn't flexible or sophisticated— at times it can be both. Instead, it's just that what sets Weebly apart from it's competitors is it's simple, clear interface.

Since 2014 I've written about how uniquely easy to use Weebly is. Even as they've added new features, the interface has stayed simple and clean— which is an impressive balancing act. (Simple is easy to do if you don't have many features but Weebly has lots of features.)

These might feel like minor details— they're not. Keeping the interface tidy and easy to understand is how you create a weebly website builder with lots features that also doesn't overwhelm users. It's a real balancing act.

Now Weebly isn't completely perfect when it comes to ease of use. For example, moving your mouse across the page can start to feel like Minesweeper— where you're not always sure what you'll find. Plus pages are made up of headers, columns, sections, spacers and elements— and occasionally it can get tricky to differentiate them— what's the difference between a section and a header?

But minor greivances aside, Weebly is still the easiest website builder and I highly recommend for anyone who doesn't feel tech savvy.
