2019. Zoho Sites gets new Style Editor
Zoho Sites is taking customization to the next level with a tool that rolls design, flexibility, and simplicity into one. With our new Style Editor, the developers have ensured every element comes with its own set of customizable design tools, empowering you to take full control of your site design. Initially, this level of design customization could only be done using the CSS editor, which requires technical knowledge. But unless you have a web designer on staff, it doesn’t make financial sense to hire one to tweak only a couple of elements. Now you don’t have to depend on anyone but yourself to create the most intricate style customizations. The Style Editor provides options to customize the background, typography, border, shadow, and spacing of every element on your page.

When Strikingly launched back in 2012, it set itself apart from other website builders by focusing on easy to build, but polished-looking mobile responsive sites. Now mobile responsive sites are de rigueur for any website builder, but one of the things that continues to differentiate Strikingly from its competitors (a partial list includes Wix, Weebly, Squarespace and WordPress) is its ease of use. The company claims that the average time to launch a new website with Strikingly’s editor is just 10 minutes.

Zoho developers say that are not going to spend millions on advertising, nor they are going to advertise on your website. But thus they move to a completely crowd driven marketing. If you are reading this news - their marketing really works.
