What do you like best?
I am not a website designer, and I love that Duda make it's easy to customize websites and pages. You have the option of starting with a template or from scratch, and all of the templates are easy to customize. There are many different options with customization such as the ability to restructure basic needs like font and color, and then it's easy to customize each element as well.
GREAT for BEGINNERS! Wonderful for INTERMEDIATE users (like myself), that knows some coding. GOOD for experts, but may not like that you cannot manipulate ALL coding. API access is available though!
What do you dislike?
I dislike most is the support system within the program. Everything is very easily explained with step-by-step guides, however if you need something specific done, it may be hard to find instructions. On the other hand, support is very responsive when you do message them with a question or need help. After they have corresponded with you, they will follow up a few days later to make sure that the support was given and that your problem has been solved before closing out the support ticket.
Does have easy to read step-by-step guides.
Does not have guides for advanced customization options such as manipulating coding.
Recommendations to others considering the product
Duda is great for anyone at any level of website design, especially for those that are beginners and intermediate. There are many website templates to choose from, and once you have started, there are options for new page templates as well. Duda has a lot of great features such as a blog option, and the ability to set up contact forms and pop ups with tons of options and settings.
What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
I use Duda to power my business website as well as websites for clients. Duda is always improving with integrations and options for many different aspects of a website.
Things that I love: incorporated blog, no limit on pages or elements, easy to use, able to manipulate coding
Things that I dislike: cannot manipulate all coding (which is understandable), somewhat slow load time on backend, unavailable elements and features.
Has given me the ability to create websites for clients to sell!
