Great question! I use Weebly for several websites and if you plan to build and maintain your own business website yourself, I think you're going to appreciate why I use Weebly.
I'm a video producer and graphic designer, and I've been using Weebly for all of my websites since about 2007.
1. Easy of Use. I haven't found another website design program that's as easy to use as Weebly. Weebly uses a drag-and-drop interface that makes adding or changing things super simple. No special codes, no html, no geeky-techno babble to learn. For example, if I want to add a block of text, I grab the Text element and drag it to the page. Then, I can start typing or copy-and-paste from another document. When I'm done, I hit Publish, wait a few seconds for it to update, and it's done. Photos, videos, images, etc., are all done pretty much the same way.
3. Lots of Features! Weebly offers several nice features with it's basic package and even more if you upgrade. When I saw everything available, it was a no-brainer to upgrade because Weebly is very affordable. Multi-year pricing covers all program updates and Weebly is adding new features and design templates all the time.
Here's the bottom line: If you need a business website, don't get trapped into something that's pricey and difficult to manage. If it's not easy to use, then it'll be easy to put off and forget about. Your online presence will suffer and your potential customers will take their elsewhere. Get a website design program you can quickly learn, access from anywhere, and utilize features that will make your business shine online. For me and thousands of others, that business website design program is Weebly!
