    Features

    Design and Themes

    The service offers a wide range of templates when compared with some others in the industry. All templates are free with each package. Each section of the page can be dragged and dropped to customize the website as you wish.

    Apps and addons

    Google Tag Manager, Facebook Pixel, and Messenger Live Chat can all be added.

    Language options

    The provider only offers language translation on its two most expensive package options, making it a much less appealing product, as customers who don’t speak English are unlikely to use the site.

    Marketing

    Social integration and sales channels

    In addition to the Zyro platform, products can be listed and sold through Amazon, Facebook, and Instagram.

    SEO Tools

    The company understands the importance of appearing on the first page of Google listings. It provides inbuilt SEO tools to raise website ranks on search engines.

    Reporting tools

    • Google Tag Manager - Track and analyze your visitors’ actions

    Email marketing

    Zyro doesn’t offer options for email marketing. Instead, it focuses on automated, personalized ads through Facebook and Google Shopping to target audiences likely to have an interest in certain products.

    Importing and exporting products

    It’s possible to transfer a previous website over to Zyro, using its Website Importer. Simply paste the URL into the search bar and everything will be imported, including text and images. No guidance is available on the ease of exporting data.

    Pricing

    Each plan comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee.

    • Basic - $1.99pm - For personal brands
    • Unleashed - $3.49 - For small businesses
    • eCommerce - $14.99 - For medium-sized businesses transitioning online

    Alternatives to Zyro

    Zyro offers cheap packages and attractive themes, but it’s lacking in many areas and doesn’t provide clear information on all of its services. 

    BigCommerce provides a huge amount of products and services, with detailed descriptions of how to implement these to effectively grow your business. Squarespace would also be a fantastic option, offering free trials and stunning layouts.
