Once you've signed up for Weblium, you can build your site from scratch or use ready-made templates. Initially, a site you add will be on the Trial period.

What is Trial period?

Trial period is an opportunity to test some Pro features without paying for the Pro subscription right away. During the Trial period, you can decide whether Pro is right for you or the Free version is enough.

Here is what's available on the Trial period:
pop-ups;
online-store;
chats;
analytics;
integrations.

Here are the features not available on the Trial period:
domain connection;
website indexing (by Google or other search engines);
custom code;
contact form replies (even if you do have a form on your website, you can't receive any requests);
adding links to external resources (e.g. linking a button to another website).

When the Trial period is over, the site will go Free automatically and the Pro features will become unavailable. You can upgrade your site to Pro anytime.

What can I do on a free site?

A site on a free subscription can stay like this forever — we don't push you to upgrade it after a certain period of time (unlike other platforms). However, note that you can have up to 3 free sites in your account. All additional sites have to be upgraded to Pro.

Under the free subscription, almost all the blocks in the editor, as well as more than 250 templates from our gallery, are available to you. Even though your site will be placed on the default subdomain of *.weblium.site, you can change this URL to match your brand.

Here are the features NOT available on the Free subscription:
embed code;
contact forms;
adding links to the external sources;
pop-ups;
connecting a domain;
site indexing;
chat widgets;
integrations;
online store.

To sum up, the free subscription basically allows you to get acquainted with the functionality of the editor and prepare the layout of your future site. Once the design and the structure of your website are completed, you can think about purchasing the Pro subscription. We offer monthly and yearly Pro subscriptions.

Important: the subscription is purchased separately for each site in your account.

What does a Pro subscription give?

The ability to connect your domain.

Any company needs to create a personal brand that will be actively promoted on the Internet. A custom domain name like domain.com will allow you not only to gain credibility and recognition among the customers but also to improve your site's traffic. In essence, sites under personal domains appear higher in the search results than others.

After purchasing a Pro subscription, you can connect an existing domain to your site or purchase a domain directly from us.

Tip: if you purchase an annual Pro subscription for your site, you will receive a free domain for one year as a gift.

Note: after the domain has been connected and propagated, SSL certificate will be generated automatically. This will provide your users with a secure internet connection and protect all data that is being shared via a website.

Adding contact/ lead generation forms and connecting marketing integrations.

Contact form is the main way of communication between the owner of the site and the visitors. With the help of contact forms you can collect requests for services or products that your company provides — this will allow you to make real profits using the site.

All contact forms are automatically connected to the CRM system in your account. This way, all submitted requests will land to the pipeline in CRM, where you can easily process them and create a personal customer base. More information regarding Weblium CRM functionality can be found in the article Weblium CRM overview.

In addition, to increase lead generation and simplify customer service, we provide smooth integration with a lot of marketing tools — for example, UniSender, Zapier, Mailchimp, and so on. To see a full list of available services, refer to the Marketing integrations section of our Help Center.

Site indexing.

The search engines look for the information to a query in their index of sites, not the actual sites. Thus, getting into the index is super important for your SEO optimization.

The free subscription does not allow your site to appear in search results on Google, Bing, Yahoo, etc. After purchasing the Pro subscription, the site will become available to search robots. Thus, it will come up to the relevant queries in organic search while attracting more and more potential customers.

Connecting analytics.

Once you've launched your site, it's important to understand how it is performing and what you can do to increase the views. Using various analytic tools, you can track events on your site — for example, page views, the number of clicks on the button, the average time on the pages — to evaluate the effectiveness of your marketing strategy.

Tracking user activity on your website can help you identify areas that can be improved as well as understand your customers' needs and preferences. We offer you the ability to connect Google Analytics, Hotjar, Facebook Pixel and many more. To see all the services for site's promotion, check the SEO and Analytics section.

Adding pop-ups

Pop-up is a window that appears to the visitors when they perform some action on a site (for example, click on a button, scroll a page, or just open a site). Pop-ups are usually used for marketing purposes — notifying about the discounts, suggesting to subscribe to a newsletter or webinar, etc.

You can create a pop-up from almost any block in our gallery to increase your lead counts.

No Weblium ads.

After purchasing a subscription, you can get rid of all references to our platform on your site, which will also help to increase the credibility of your company.

The ability to add your code to the site.

We allow our users to integrate third-party services if they are looking for additional functionality. For example, using our tools, you can add a reservation button, calendar, custom maps, etc. All of these options will help you build your customers' brand confidence by providing them with all kinds of features they need.

The ability to create an online store.

If you want to showcase your products on the site and manage the orders straight in the settings, the functionality of our online store will match your needs. It includes most essential settings like adding the product images, description, and price. It’s also quite simple to use — all you need to do is add your product in the site settings and choose where to display it on the live site. The product cards can be added almost to any block in the editor.

For more information on how to set an online store on your site, check the article Adding products to the online store.

Adding chat widgets.

Having live chat on your site allows your customers to interact with you instantly, therefore increasing your business credibility. We've made it simple to communicate live with your site visitors with the help of a chat widgets powered by Livechat, tawk.to, and Jivosite.

Tip: you can also find a comparative description of each of the subscriptions on our platform on Weblium pricing page.
