IM Creator Review 2019: Free website builder, IM Creator claims to power 17,420,822 sites (as on 7th March 2019). I came across this site builder quite recently when a friend of mine who created his portfolio on this platform asked me to check it out.
I wasn’t expecting much. Nevertheless, I explored the platform and then decided to write a review of it.
So, here is an honest IM Creator review.
IM Creator Review 2019
Before giving a verdict, let’s go through the various features of IM Creator website builder:
To get started with building your website with IM Creator, you don’t need to create an account. You just have to select a template and start editing it as per your needs. This is something that I really liked about this platform. You can check out if the website builder is going to serve your purpose before signing up (read sharing your email). You have to sign up only if you like what you create and decide to save it.
And in all likelihood, you are going to like it. There are templates of various categories – Art & Design, Photography, Fashion & Beauty, Technology, Business, etc. and all of them seem to be designed with extreme care. They look elegant. All the templates are responsive.
All you have to do is replace the existing content with yours. You can also add pages, edit the menu, add (and customize) pre-built segments to each page, like Gallery, Features, Blog, Store, Text Block, Form, Map, Social buttons, you name it.
No Need Of Technical Skills
Basically, it offers immense flexibility in terms of modifying the selected template as per your requirement. And you don’t need to have a bit of technical skills to create an awesome website. In fact, you can publish a beautiful website within five minutes.
In terms of SEO, the platform offers quite a few options with its in-built tools:
a. You can choose to keep your website hidden from search engines,
b. You can upload favicon and social image preview,
c. You can integrate Google Analytics and Facebook Pixel to your site.
You can also add various Page Widgets to your IM Creator site, including Custom Widgets (by adding codes).
The platform allows you to add all the necessary features to build an e-commerce site. You have to add the “Store” section to get started and then you can add various features like, analytics, checking out with credit card, management console, etc.
Free & Paid Plans
IM Creator has both free and paid plans. The paid plans start from $8 per month.
What makes the platform unique is that:
a. It provides unlimited hosting to both free and paid users,
b. No ads are displayed even on websites built on the free plan,
c. For students, artists, and non-profit websites, IM Creator allows you to connect a domain free of cost (otherwise, the free websites are a sub-domain of IM Creator site). That’s sweet, isn’t it?
A Few Limitations Of IM Creator Website Builder
It has a few disadvantages as well:
- Once you select a template, there is no way you can change it. You have to start building your website again from the scratch.
- You can add title, keywords, description to the site, but instead of having the feature to add them separately for each page/post, IM Creator allows you to add these only once, for your entire website.
- The blog section is not user-friendly. I mean it’s not difficult but unlike other platforms, creating, editing, and formatting blog posts on IM Creator is time-consuming.
- There are forums and help articles but the chat and email supports are not very impressive.
IM Creator is absolutely worth it for those who do not have any technical knowledge, nor are they interested to learn. You can create an absolutely professional looking website on this platform.
It is also a great website builder to create online portfolios.
It is also worth the price for small to medium businesses as it is highly scalable.
It is also a great option for those who want to create a professional looking website within a short time.
If you want to create a site solely for the purpose of blogging, IM Creator may not be the best option for you.
I personally like the platform and might even try running a blog on it.
So, this was an absolutely honest IM Creator Review and I hope it helps you in deciding whether or not to go for the website.
