    "Finally, an Easy to Use Website Builder"

    May 23, 2014  |   By JayRogers002

    Version: BlueVoda Website Builder 12.5

    Pros

    Once I downloaded the website builder from the website, I knew I had made the right choice!

    This was very well laid out and I had my choice of countless templates. This helped me to create a professional theme without spending a lot of time uploading backgrounds and changing the color of buttons and such. Everything was done for me - and my site looked great.

    Since my website has gone live, I've gotten a lot of traffic and I attribute it to the builder that I used.

    Cons

    Only 1 option for hosting, however I am very satisfied with their hosting company.

    Summary

    For my photography business, I needed a website builder that would allow me to create a professional website without having to hire a web designer. The website designers in my area wanted to charge me around $4,000 for a website and this wasn't money that I had. Some of the website builders I had seen in the past required me to use
    HTML and this wasn't going to work because I had no idea how to write in this computer language.

    I was able to load all of the content on my website within minutes. As I created new pages, the theme carried over. This allowed me to go from home page to about me to services without having to do more than copy the template and add new content onto each page. One of the best features was that I was able to go live in seconds with their hosting provider. This was important because I needed to get a site online quickly to start looking for new clients.

    The website builder was thorough and provided me with a lot of assistance. There were video tutorials for me to use and this made it easy for me to figure out how to do certain things on my site, such as resizing a logo and including a slide show of images for my gallery.

    "Website builder for powerful websites with great impact"

    March 5, 2014  |   By Niroperera

    Version: BlueVoda Website Builder 12.5

    Pros

    This is exactly the type of website builder I was looking for as it helped me to create and design a successful website without being intimidated by complex commands, instructions or time consuming maneuvering. It works on a simple drag and drop concept helping users to integrate text, images and customize their pages using a range of value added options like flash videos, shopping carts, e-payment options, password protected member logins and many more. The website builder is complete with nifty tools like an in-built spell checker, self alignment, link verifiers, free web templates and video tutorials to make the entire process of website creation error free, smooth and successful.

    Cons

    No Live Chat Support

    Summary

    In the absence of any expert knowledge in website creation I was reluctantly considering the very expensive option of hiring a professional. But I came across a website builder helping anyone without any coding knowledge to create impactful sites and blogs from ground-up. This is a great tool with a simple HTML editor interface helping users to create websites even if they don't have programming skills and experience.

    Not many website builder tools are equipped to equally serve a range of needs. However, with this website builder you can try out a variety of platforms from full fledged professional websites, portfolio sites to simple blogs. Novices facing any bottlenecks can fallback on a number of support options including Tutorials page, the Voda Talk support forum or submitting individual support tickets. The biggest boon offered by the website builder is that you get to enjoy greater functionality, systemic integration and a whole range of stylistic options for absolutely no cost. As experiences go I am happy to say that this is definitely a tool worth trying out.

    "Highly recommended for its amazing features."

    February 26, 2014  |   By Blue_Roy

    Version: BlueVoda Website Builder 12.5

    Pros

    This website builder is highly recommended for its amazing features and ease of use.

    When I downloaded this amazing builder, I did not expect to have fun while making a website, but I did. I completed my website in less than two hours, and it went online immediately. Of course, my site went live right away as I have to use their hosting service. I must admit, I got disappointed at first as I am planning to use the cheapest hosting in the market, but I easily overcome my disappointment because the builder hosting is affordable enough and reliable.

    Cons

    Everything is good so far.

    Summary

    This website builder has many features that made it one of the best in the market, at least for me. For one, I was able to make a website without bothering with complicated html as I only drag and drop everything I need to make my website such as the website headers, webpage backgrounds, logos and more.

    I also liked their "one click publishing" feature because it allows me to publish my site in mere seconds. However, one thing that really made this builder the best in my book is their video tutorials that discuss all parts of the building process to publishing.

    The video tutorials really helped me create my first website. You see, I am not a computer expert, nor have experience in making a website. But, amazingly, I was able to do what professionals or website developer does. Come to think of it! I feel good about myself after I saw my site on the internet I was ecstatic and surprised at the same time because I was able to do something that I can be proud of without help from anyone.

    They have 24 hour customer assistance, but there is no reason for me to use it, because like I said, the website builder video tutorials are very helpful.

    "I've noticed that there are many five star ratings here"

    February 18, 2014  |   By handzon_com

    Version: BlueVoda Website Builder 12.5

    Pros

    I'll share my experiences as objectively as I can. Last month I had to create content for customer whose web site is managed through BlueVoda. We were to change basic content and layout, which I have to say when fairly well. Although it's not like our Handzon application, I felt that overall the software was capable. Design options for us was the drawback. But simple to use for creating basic content on your pages.

    Cons

    For me, the negatives were Styling options, no chat support, and I felt the design options are quite restrictive

    Summary

    If you're building a simple web site, BlueNova would be a good choice, but make sure that your updates are not too complicated. But the basics are definitely covered

    "Website Builder worth Mentioning!"

    February 5, 2014  |   By Annie_Tallis

    Version: BlueVoda Website Builder 12.5

    Pros

    The best part of this Website Builder is that it does not require one to have HTML knowledge. It was indeed hard for me to believe that simple dragging and dropping could fetch me such wondrous results.

    The pre-designed web templates are awesome! The gallery full of images, videos, logos and templates, let me play and choose the ones I wanted to incorporate in my website.

    My website went live on the internet in just a few seconds with the "One Click Publishing" feature that this Website Builder offers.

    Cons

    Nothing, I liked it a lot!

    Summary

    When I thought of creating my own website, I thought of trying it out without taking any professional's help. Honestly speaking, when I contemplated of building my website, I could hardly believe that I could do it!

    I had no idea that website building can be so easy and can be done by a novice like me as well! Thank God for this Website Builder, I came across; now I know that website building is no longer the exclusive privilege of a lucky few. I just tried my luck with this and what I got in return has been amazing!

    Strangely enough, I found out that I could create as many websites as I wanted using this. It lets one's imagination run wild, literally! It has been a superb experience for me!

    "Create a Website of your own!"

    January 17, 2014  |   By 10cube

    Version: BlueVoda Website Builder 12.5

    Pros

    You can build a great website which is professional with the services of this website builder. There are a large number of templates and options from which one can create his website. So instead of trying to explain to a professional on what you desire and getting a half baked product from him, you can get down and make one of your own.

    Cons

    None what so ever..

    Summary

    Starting a company of your own can be draining on your resources. On top of it I needed to take my business online to earn the best out of my business and be competitive. In such a scenario I can only claim myself as lucky to have come across the services of this website builder as it was not only economical on my pocket but also helped me create a website that was exactly what I intended to have.
    One might feel that I had taken the help of some professional because I have mentioned that I created a website to my satisfaction. Surprisingly, that is not the case. I created my website all on my own. Over that I should mention that I have ZERO technical expertise with respect to creating a website.

    Also the web hosting and support services are worth a mention too. The support services are so dynamic that even if you are struck with the simplest of steps explained, you can call upon the services of someone else.

    Reading this entire one might get the feel that it is too good to be true. But trust me having used the services of this website builder; I would say this is no exaggeration.

    "Are 5 star comment BlueVoda workers?"

    December 31, 2013  |   By NotPaidToComment

    Version: BlueVoda Website Builder 12.5

    Pros

    From the video introduction it sounds like the web builder itself is nice (as are many others), but there is no pricing details on the main intro page to indicate what the deal is once you start using their service. That is always red flag and from other commentators it seems this is the case.

    Cons

    As mentioned, it is not explained upfront you will be locked into using their service. Not being upfront on terms and cost is cheap-trick marketing and why trust them at all? Also, it is sooooo obvious that many of the five star ratings are written by professional copy writers. There are many good hosted web design sites and many come with shopping carts.

    Summary

    I wouldn't use this company because if they can't be upfront at the start, why trust them in the future? Personally I think this whole area is a minefield and the decision will come down to how much you are willing to pay, put up with, need to do and how much you are willing to learn.

    "A Website Builder That's Free and Professional Looking"

    March 5, 2013  |   By vincilovey13

    Version: BlueVoda Website Builder 12.5

    Pros

    I'm so glad that I found this website builder because I was able to finally build the website I needed for my business that had a professional edge - and I did it without spending any money.

    Now that I've launched my website, I continuously have clients coming up to me and telling me how much they like my website. I have even had several business owners ask me who my website designer is. When I have told them that I created it myself, they didn't believe me and thought that I was holding back on them.

    I've shared the secret of this website builder with several people and they have created beautiful websites as well.

    Cons

    They do not offer online chat support but their customer support team is great and available 24/7.

    Summary

    I was looking for a free complete website builder for a long time because I needed to build a website for my business. I didn't have the money for the fancy website designers that my competition was using. I wasn't too concerned on how it would look because I knew I could create something beautiful if only I could find the right website builder.

    It wasn't long before I finally stumbled on this simple and easy to use website builder that was free and provided me with all the templates I could ever ask for. Their templates made everything so easy. Once I found one that was themed towards my business, I simply clicked on where I wanted things and set up my whole website. Everything could be set-up with one-click, which made everything so simple.

    There are so many features that this website builder offers but the best thing it is completely free. I could build as many pages as I wanted and it was all free. I took advantage of this, creating over a dozen pages to help with my SEO and rank myself higher in the search engines.

    "Brilliant Website Builder"

    January 8, 2013  |   By Kennedy2013

    Version: BlueVoda Website Builder 12.5

    Pros

    We recommend everyone to download this website builder to help you create a brilliant website.

    We downloaded this FREE website builder a few months back and could not believe how easy and simple it was to use. When we did get stuck their customer support team was very informative and quick with their replies. You do have to use their hosting provider, but they have been reliable and very affordable. Our website has not had a problem since we published it.

    Cons

    We have had no problems at all

    Summary

    I could not resist the urge to give my review of this website builder, knowing that millions of beginners like me all around the world are looking for a trustworthy website builder tool capable of delivering its promises. Having read many reviews on this website builder, both good and bad, we decided to give it a go and create a website for our business 5 months ago.

    We discovered this very user friendly, feature rich website builder. With almost nil experience we created a powerful website brimming with information, graphics and images which are vital for promoting our woodworking business. The short and "to the point" tutorials are easy to follow and you don't need any prior knowledge on complex web architecture. The website builder is highly convenient to use and provides a countless options such as animation, flash, images and videos. Love the simple 'drag and drop' option which definitely makes your task much easier and quicker.

    So whether it is your first shot in website building or you are a pro at this type of work, this website builder will give you a helping hand with new and exciting ideas.
