Tilda: A New Way To Build Websites For Marketing
Do you hate WordPress? Do you think WordPress sucks? You are not alone.
Although WordPress happens to be the most popular CMS, it’s also the most susceptible. Don’t get wrong. I love WordPress, my digital marketing agency website is on WordPress, and I’d still swear by it.
Sometimes, however, your business might not need WordPress. It might need any of the DIY builders that have been making appearances often. We already wrote about quite a few DIY builders that are already popular.
Recently, however, I came across a fantastic DIY website builder called Tilda. Now, there are a lot of builders out there and some of them are just fantastic. Given that most of them are priced relatively similarly, there’s not much to differentiate one from the other. Except that, for instance:
Wix — you have many users who’ll swear by it. Plus, new apps are always added.
Weebly — it’s a complete package with good-looking websites along with complete marketing integration like Email marketing and analytics along with a teeny-weeny bit of marketing automation thrown in.
Tilda makes no tall promises. It’s not here to take on giants like WordPress or even Weebly or Wix. It’s here to carve a niche of its own. The USP comes from sporting just the set of features that you’d need.
Tilda makes use of a module library and a library of blocks to help you build a website just the way you want it. Together, these two features alone help you use Typography the way you want, put up photo galleries, use background videos, setup complete pages, and more.
While you build a website on Tilda, you’d obviously be building for mobile too. They made sure that the one time you’d be sitting tight to build a website, you’d never have to redo the process for the mobile version.
Here’s the cool part: if there’s something you needed and if it’s missing on Tilda, make use of the Zero block — a sort of a plugin that helps you edit absolutely anything on your website.
Tilda already thought of the marketing angle for websites (which I believe is amazing) and hence allows for landing pages, presentations, and the all-too-important call-to-action modules.
With Tilda, you can also build a complete ecommerce store and integrate with Paypal or Stripe. There’s also direct integration in-built with Google Drive.
