"Very Remincent of Flash"

What do you like best?

I think creating animations in this program is easier than something like Adobe Premier, but a step up from creating animations in Adobe Photoshop. It is quite reminiscent of Macromedia (Adobe) Flash, but simplified. As someone that previously was not a fan of using flash, this seemed to be a bit more direct and user friendly. There are ample templates available, so it may allow for exciting ads to be created in even less time.

What do you dislike?

All of the templates and options seemed unnecessary, and some of them didn't even work. Plus the saving structure creates A LOT of extra supporting files, so file a management from the very beginning is CRUCIAL. If files get misplaced after it's created it essentially corrupts the whole file and won't even open again. There is not a unique file extension for these files, you open and work on the .html file.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Allow time for trial and error. There seems to be so many options available and new ad types that I was previously unfamiliar with.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

A client asked for an animated ad, and had very specific specs about the kinds of files that were necessary to implement their ads. Rather than me designing the ad and painstakingly animating it and then a developer creating custom coding, this created all of the necessary files with a simple 'Publish'. After a bit of a learning curve, I think it could be significantly useful in bridging that gap of time, while still being able to create visually intriguing ads.

"Easy and quick advertising solution"

What do you like best?

I love how easy and quick it is to setup and get a decent looking ad up and running in this program. It is integrated with the Google Studio system as well, so it can be published straight to the web. There are heaps of resources, forums and online support for any issues as well as a bunch of templates available. Customisation is easy on any layout, and the support team are great in helping out with any special requests or helping with any problem you come across

What do you dislike?

The program is still in beta, so sometimes you will come across some bugs - biggest one I have found is what worked in one project, doesn't work in the next.

Recommendations to others considering the product

There is nothing to lose when trying out this program, you could find that it is easier than your current solution. It's free and has a big support team available.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have found that turn around times on projects has improved as the program helps with coding the basics for you, and then we can still jump in on harder customisation's by switching to the code view.

"Good for Quick and Easy web design."

What do you like best?

I like the moderately simple user interface and easy to understand mechanics of the system. It's very clean and a good learning process for new or inexperienced website developers, making it worth our time. It's one of our favorite website development tools to use.

What do you dislike?

I dislike the clustered, somewhat messy areas of the interface that get in the way of website development. Also, some features are inconsistent in how often they work or appear to be broken, causing it to be somewhat unreliable in certain cases.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would recommend this product to people looking for a quick and easier way to create websites. It's very nice and a smooth process despite it still being in beta.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are solving many business problems using Google Web Designer, such as fixing our lack of stable, reliable websites for our company, as well as being able to create them in a short span of time. It has came with many benefits, our websites now receive much more traffic than they used to as we have been able to push out better websites to the internet,

"Good tool for banners and ads"

What do you like best?

I like the interface that is simple and quick to understand. In the last update the Google team provide a whide range of templates that you can use at your advantage. Google Web Design, thanks to the drag and drop interface, permits you to use it with no problems from the beginning. Also the YGIWYS interface helps you a lot to understand your work.

What do you dislike?

The tools and functions in it are good, but you can't really design an entire web site in it. Google Web Designer is a limited software that cannot be used by professional for professional project. Also you cannot import your own HTML files in it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you need a simple and fast platform that you can use for banners or little web based project use Google Web Designer. It's also free, so you have the chance to test it before switching for somethig that you have to pay for. But for basic work it's good.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use it mostly for banners. Our Facebook and AdSense campaigns need almost a banner every two days. So with Google Web Designer I can save time and have a professional result at the same time.
