Performance

Zyro-powered websites, in spite of their simplicity, have proven to perform incredibly well. After building my website on Zyro and testing it for performance, I found out that it outperforms the website of several big brands. Here are what the performance test results look like.

zyro website performance and page speed

Site and Page Speed

Site and page speeds are important for a good user experience. Slow-loading websites experience awfully high bounce rates. Websites built on Zyro load fast enough to deliver content to visitors within 1.7 seconds. However, it took a bit longer than necessary (4.6 seconds) for the website to allow users to interact with it. Overall, the speed index of the website (2.7 seconds) falls within acceptable bounds.

Website Accessibility and Uptime

Zyro promises users a 99.9% website uptime. It is quite an industry-wide standard for website builders and hosting providers to keep customer sites up and accessible almost 100% of the time. However, my test results from the Google-powered PageSpeed Insight show that my Zyro-powered website has a 98% accessibility score. Although this is below the 99.9% promise, it is a very impressive accessibility score.

SEO

SEO goes beyond good use of keywords. Technical SEO is mainly about the weight of your website’s codes and the ability of search engines to index them. Zyro websites are super lightweight and scannable. As such it presented a top-tier SEO performance result of 90% during my test. Also, Google awarded the website with a 92% score for building with the best practices. That’s what a website good builder can help you accomplish.

Uniqueness

Zyro offers an excellent drag-and-drop website builder with an intuitive and minimalistic interface. Its wide range of app integrations and AI-powered business tools makes it a standout solution for small and medium-sized business owners around the world.

Ease of Use

Aside from the sophisticated AI branding tools available on the Zyro website builder, the drag-and-drop editor makes it easy to use. And the intuitive interface brings adds fun to the website creation process. Some of the use cases are pretty straightforward.

Setup

Does Zyro really have a setup process? Hard to tell since all you have to do is sign in with your email and you are set. Unlike most other website builders that puts a questionnaire in your face, Zyro makes setting up a super easy process.

Once you sign up, you’d be immediately presented with loads of website templates to pick from. Then, you can start building your website right away. Right on this templates page, you can choose to start building your website from scratch or customize a really cool template to fit your brand message and tone. As you can see in the video below, I jumped right into one of the cool, techies templates on the page. Up next? Design!

Designing

Once you finish Zyro’s almost non-existent setup process, you can dive right into designing your website. For most website builders, the design process could require a few mouse clicking and feature fondling. Working with Zyro, the design process is right on track. Intuitive, visual, and highly responsive. From how the texts on your page look to the forms and buttons, everything can be customized just how you want it. Total creative freedom.

Text Styling

Even though you’re new to web design, you obviously know that there’s a need for uniformity across the whole website. This includes maintaining uniform text styles, including font type, and size. It can be irksome to web visitors if your website texts are inconsistent. Not very obvious but it’s one of those quirks that chase your customers away.

Zyro is well aware of this. So, they made the text styling functionality accessible right on the section of the page that you are editing. You don’t have to open another window to work on each text. The page and text styling functions are seamlessly integrated. More interestingly, you can use the regular shortcuts to style texts on the Zyro editor (i.e. Ctrl+B or Ctrl+I to bolden or italicize selected text).

Form Customization

Forms are an important element of a website. You need them to collect user information, make sales, and drive engagement from website visitors. But forms don’t have to be the regular boring fields and button outlook. You can design forms to fit your brand and work the background, fields, and buttons into your brand elements. Zyro website builder makes it insanely easy to do this, all without leaving the page that you’re working on.

Button Designing

Without clickable buttons, a website is no more than a digitized billboard advert. You need buttons on your website to boost engagement and enhance user experience. But dry, boring buttons don’t exactly meet these needs effectively. So, Zyro has designed its website builder in a way that allows you to customize your buttons however you want. You can work the corners, change the fill colors, customize the hover functions, and even choose a more convenient orientation for the button if you want. Here, have a look.

App Integration

Having a website on Zyro doesn’t offer you everything you need to run a successful business. Actually, no website builder offers all the solutions. But you can integrate with third-party apps easily with Zyro. All you have to do is navigate to the Integration function right from the website settings option on the bottom-left corner of the website builder. Then, simply paste a developer’s embed code from the third-party app provider. Voila!

Customer Support

Zyro has a robust support system with email and live chat supports available, as well as easily accessible materials for customer self-service. So, whether you prefer to get your hand busy with DIY support or want to solicit the help of an expert, you can feel confident that the Zyro team is there for you.

Email Support

Finding the email support of Zyro was pretty easy. Reaching out to them about integrating my Calendly booking page, I received a response in exactly 30 minutes. The support specialist that reached out to me was graceful. She offered to walk me through the integration process and was even willing to do it for me herself. All I had to do was share my website domain name or email address.

Live Chat

The live chat option is intertwined with the email support service. When you send a message to the support team via live chat, the email support feedback in your mailbox will be updated in real time. This way, you don’t have to be emailed a transcript when you finish your chat. And if your live chat does go off for some reason, you can always kick it back up by sending a response via email.

Interestingly though, the live chat option is not available to everyone. Those using the free plan cannot access the live chat. You can only see the chat button after you’ve purchased a premium plan. I found this out after accessing the page incognito and reaching out to the team to figure out why a live chat button was missing.

Zyro Email Support

Once I signed back into my paid account, the live chat was there for me to use all through. And Diogo was quite responsive. Great support, man!

Zyro Blog

Zyro blog is designed to help small business owners grow as an enterprise. It features helpful branding and marketing tips to enhance business success. Personally, I’ve gained a wealth of experience-based knowledge by following the blog.

Business Glossary
Zyro Business Glossary, also known as Zyro Encyclopedia, is a page specifically built to help business owners understand the complex and relatively easy technical terms that they’d encounter as they run an online business from day to day.

The Business Glossary page groups terms into two main categories, including website builder and e-commerce categories. Each of these categories contains terms that are explained to-the-detail with really interesting examples to help users understand them better.

Personally, I consider this Zyro Business Glossary as the ultimate online business dictionary.

Mobile Responsiveness

Most website builders are designed to automatically optimize your website for mobile viewing. While that is quite cool, it doesn’t offer users complete creative control over how their website should look on mobile devices.

Zyro, on the other hand, gives users the creative freedom to reorganize the mobile interface of their website however they want it. You can add elements to the mobile interface even though they are not on the desktop view of your website. While it’s not advisable to have varying experiences, a little tweak on the mobile can make your website very engaging for mobile users.

AI-powered Business Tools

Zyro offers a very unique feature, not remotely seen in other website builders. The AI-powered business tools present on the builder help users automate both marketing and creative tasks, including minor content writing, logo design, image background removal, and website heat mapping.

These features, although still in their evolving stages, especially the AI writer, offer very impressive possibilities for small business owners that wish to save costs on creative tasks in the near future.

eCommerce Tools

Regardless of the type of business that you operate, Zyro is designed to work for you. It offers a simple website plan that lets you build websites for your business and collect customer information with ease. Also, it offers eCommerce tools with which users can collect payments from their customers.

The eCommerce solution also lets you add up to 500 products to your website for sale. This means that you can easily track the sales and inventory of all these products in real-time.

Application Integrations

Zyro does not have an app market. However, it offers a feature that allows you to integrate with basically any third-party app that exists. The custom code embedding feature in the integrations page allows you to add a wide range of over 5000 apps to your website by just pasting the code and hitting the “Save” button.

Superb support but limited tool

Great customer service, however, the tool is quite limited in text editing or image adjustment settings. I didn't find some of their fancy features like AI writer useful.
