Review: Create a stunning business website w/ easy-to-use tools

Yola allows you to create a professional looking business website in a few minutes with easy-to-use tools. Yola is the website builder and hosting service that helps small businesses stand out on the web. Their site builder allows you to showcase your products and services online to reach the widest audience possible. With Yola, your website will look professional, have all the features your audience wants, and be free from annoying ads.

Yola also offers a Silver package for $99.95 per year.  This price includes custom domain name pointing (purchase a domain from Yola for as low as $11.95)  and unlimited access to all premium website templates (valued at over $800 plus the removal of the Yola brand name from all of your pages.  Other features, such as free advertising credits and traffic monitoring you can use on your website, make the package deal a much more economical choice.

Yola Silver also offers improved web hosting.  Just like Yola Free, you’ll get unlimited bandwidth (traffic to your site), but you’ll also benefit from having more space on the server to store your website’s files — 5GB instead of 1GB.  You’ll also be able to store large files — a maximum of 100MB per file, instead of just 15MB — which will allow you to store larger pictures and other files that require a lot of memory.  That $99.95 per year covers more than just one website, too — you can design and publish as many as 25 sites with your Yola Silver account.

Yola Silver Plan: $99.95 per year (or $9.95 per month) includes:
•    Custom Domain name pointing (Purchase a domain from Yola for as low as $10.95)
•    Create up to 25 sites, rather than 5 with Yola Free
•    5GB of storage per site instead of 1GB
•    100MB max file upload instead of 15MB
•    Removal of the Yola link at the bottom of the site
•    Google Advertising Credit (worth $75)
•    Facebook Advertising Credit (worth $25)
•    30 days of traffic monitoring
•    Easy access to Fotolia images through the site builder
•    Custom site CSS
•    Unlimited premium styles – worth over $800
•    Premium phone support for 90 days
•    NEW: Mobile site optimization
•    NEW: Yola Online Store (Extra $10 per month or $100 per year)

Yola Premier Bundle: $499.95 for the first year, $99.95 each year thereafter

Yola Premier includes the Yola Silver package + a consultation with a professional designer and a customized 5-page website.

    Absolutely fantastic if you are looking for a completely flat home made looking web site which has all the features of one of those freebee blogs you see all over the net. Yola makes sure that anything that remotely looks good or professional is for those who upgrade. Even then the choices are limited. All the hype and adds from that guy from the Dragons Den should have given given me a red flag before I started dicking around trying to make the Basic look like something potential customers would respond to. This is a perfect example of “you get what you pay for”. You pay nothing and guess what? You get what you pay for. If you don’t care what you look like on the net, go for basic. If you do care, get a proper web designer. As for the promotions associated with this company, I will admit that I am pissed. They make it sound like they are here to help the poor lowly wannabe entrepreneur. They are there to take your money, pure and simple. I hate false advertising and being lied to. Also, be prepared to be inundated with emails from Yola once you joined. All neatly disguised as messages to help you succeed.

    Well-loved. Like or Dislike: Thumb up 5 Thumb down 1

    Rick, Thanks for the review! We appreciate your honest opinion! Yes, it’s true that Yola’s paid products offer access to more premium features & designs, while Yola free is limited, but there’s also a lot of flexibility with free. Did you try customizing the free styles at all? You can edit the format any way you want by changing the layout, adding column dividers, and adding your own banner images to the header without having to hire a graphic designer.

    Yola is also known for their great customer support – they truly offer all kinds of great advice to make your website look good & succeed. They have video tutorials, send emails and update their blog frequently with tips and tricks that actually work. You can feel free to unsubscribe from the emails if you aren’t interested in their recommendations.

    Also keep in mind that they are a business so they can’t offer access to EVERYTHING for free! Yola Silver offers way more for less than $10 a month. See above for all the details.

    I had no idea creating an attractive website could be so easy! I’m getting married this summer and wanted to have a wedding website. I was dreading it, but since Yola was free I decided to give a try. I was pleasantly surprised at how smoothly it went and how intuitive the steps were. Very happy with Yola!

    Yola is great. I made lizzyclub.yolasite.com in less than 5 minutes. Some things I don’t like about it is that it went from just 20$ to 50$. I wish there was a way to get it without a hosting plan, but besides that it is awesome.

    I’m an author, the Chief Designer of two ePublishers and a book formatter. One of my publishers has created two sites (one an imprint) using one of Yola’s free templates. You have to put a little effort into making the site your own, but Yola makes it easy with what they offer, even for free. I designed website headers for three sites and I uploaded one to my own author’s website. I couldn’t be happier with the company and what they offer.

    The folks with Yola are professional and they offer website building that even a child can use. The free sites also offer a “gallery” where you can upload images for viewing.

    Most of us these days are either self-employeed or we own small businesses. If this is the case with you, I suggest creating a free website with Yola. You can always upgrade later, if you wish. If you’re wanting to simply create a free site to share pics of family and your cute puppy, Yola is still the way to go. Your options are nearly limitless… *g*

    Just looking to find a website builder. I already have a domain and have free hosting and need to create a website and then post a blog about my niche. Hope yola free is a good place to start and if it works well I might upgrade to silver later.
