And what are Tilda's flaws, or is everything perfect?At the beginning of the article, we focused on the fact that the designer’s capabilities are still limited. Landing on Tilda or a simple website is what this product was built for, but the development of a more complex solution is not an easy task. But you can try to solve it. Still, the creators of the product do not stop continuing to develop it and supplement it with new features.
1. You need to pay for a subscription to a service
About 120$ per year for 1 site. It does not seem to be a very pleasant moment, especially if you do not plan to make changes to your site and it will simply be your business card. For 5 resources will have to pay 240$ per year.
2. Relatively little hosting space
You are provided with only 1 GB per resource, so be prepared if at some point a new article can’t load on the page.
3. The restriction for online stores (but we believe that we can deal with!)
The third point we want to discuss is rather a big minus which in fact can be called not entirely true. Why? Prove it!
All articles in the spirit of “Advantages and disadvantages of Tilda” loudly declare the impossibility of making a full-fledged online store on Tilda: supposedly the lack of filtering of goods, and the functionality of the basket is limited to the most necessary blocks, make this unrealistic. We agree with one thing - you really cannot create a personal account for clients (for now!).
But the issue of filters, payment acceptance baskets - is solved, in the hands of an experienced specialist. The designer skillfully turns into a full-fledged online store. You just need a little patience and development magic.
The page of payment method looks like:
4. The complexity of SEO optimization
On the Internet, there is an opinion that the promotion of sites written on the designer, including the promotion of a site on Tilda, is almost fantastic since such products are primarily convenient for creating landing pages. And this is another false flaw. The designer has a full set of functions for SEO, and sites developed on it are perfectly indexed in search engines.
We have described the most significant pros and cons of Tilda for your business. Of course, a difficult solution cannot be built on it, but if you need to quickly start with the idea- Tilda is exactly what you need!
