Value for Money

Comments: I use Populr for building landing pages to test different value propositions for different customer segments as I hone in on early adopters for business and product ideas. It makes the process of creating and hosting them fast and simple. Love what they've done.

Pros: Easy to use. Great variety of layout choices. I don't have to think about hosting or any technical stuff.

Cons: Getting lines to open in a new window is a little clunky, but I'm sure they'll make it a more integrated feature soon. Certainly not a deal breaker.

Comments: Populr makes generating one pagers and marketing collateral as easy as typing up a document in Word. I don't have the time to spend perfecting a document's layout with other means, but with Populr it's simple; type it out, select or upload a background, move anything around if I have to, and publish.

Pros: Ease of use, professional look, customer support

Cons: Haven't found any yet.

I Don't Want to Think About Business Without Populr

5/5
Overall

Comments: I came across this product during a webinar and, even if I live to be 115, it has paid for itself many times over. I often go from idea, to proposal at the speed of typing. No need to even think twice about 'who is going to lay it out?', 'where will I host it?', 'what if I need to make edits?', 'how will I know if it's viewed?' - and a dozen other concerns that are no longer mine!

Pros: Fast Easy Beautiful design Can publish to my own domain(!!!) Many templates Amazing customer service New templates being added all the time Totally clean Web 3.0 look/feel Unlimited POPs on my account Easy to collaborate with others More

Cons: I'd like to be able to publish to more than 3 domains (I play in a lot of worlds!) I honestly can't think of another one

Easy way to increase marketing communications - without engaging a whole design/IT team

5/5
Overall

Comments: Pretty simple to use, with a good user interface, producing professional looking pages quickly. Was easy to test as well, with all the same functions during freemium use only with greater branding present. The tracking is fairly basic, but great to have individually for each page. We are in China and I have no problem to integrate videos hosted on the video platforms here.

Pros: Freemium same functions as paid Easy to use Quick page response Automatic saving (but not posting live) Can collaborate easily (and delete collaboration rights easily too) Good range of functions Good range of example pages, great for ideas

Cons: Would like a "Blank" slate design (I am always deleting all the modules before I start a new page) Font size, colours, could have better choices (currently it is all in themes and limited) Some bugs (occasionally content deletes itself)

Excellent!

Comments: Over the last year I have become a huge fan of Populr. Since I have no knowledge of web design, I use the easy to create pop pages for business proposals. My clients have been blown away by the proposals that I have put in front of them using Populr. Highly recommended.

Pros: Easy to integrate video clips, photos, pdf files. The layout is extremely easy to change and customize. The entire system is very intuitive.

Cons: It does take a little getting used to. And from time to time the system runs slowly (although that could be my internet connection, too)

Neat new product

Comments: Neat way to follow up with referrals, send out proposals and market yourself outside the box.

Pros: I'm not creative, so it is easy to use and look professionally assembled.

Cons: Learn it on your own.

Comments: Populr gives me an easy way to share my training materials with delegates. I also use it for proposals - so much more impressive than just sending an email with an attachment.

Comments: I have been using Populr for the last year to build landing pages for Seminars. The tool provides easy to use layout that I found to be robust enough to build a nice looking page without needing a lot of html knowledge, but also provides access to css to make more technical changes in design. Love the product

Populr.me - an extremely effective way to share information for your deals

Jul 24, 2014
4/5
Overall

Comments: I love Populr and and use it more and more often. I'd been looking for something like this forever and was ecstatic (not exaggerating) when I came across it. I use it to organize and distribute due diligence information for the small corporate finance deals I work on and it is very effective for that. The only alternative was outrageously expensive and complicated ¿deal room¿ software that targets law firms and investment banks doing large scale M&A. I currently use a slightly modified version of one of the most basic templates offered, which is perfect for my needs - 10 or 20 documents grouped by type or subject matter in an attractive, organized fashion. My clients, who pay me to find financing for their projects, like it and so do the potential investors I share the projects with. And I like being notified whenever they open the Pop. I have looked at other Populr.me templates and their uses and I plan to adapt one or more as soon as I can for marketing my services to potential clients. There is a lot more I can do with Populr.me and I intend to.

Pros: ¿ Attractive and varied templates that are easy to modify and use ¿ Uniformly positive reactions from recipients ¿ Great way to distribute information. ¿ Alternative to DropBox, ShareFile, static webpages, Deal Room Software

Cons: ¿ The Help Pages could use some Help.

Great way to get the word out

Comments: Populr is super easy to use and allows you the opportunity to send out multiple messages in no time. Plus, the ability to track activity helps you determine what messages work better than others. Bottom line: great bang for the dollar.

Pros: Easy to use

Comments: Populr is a user-friendly drag and drop website hosting platform that works for people like me who need information to be displayed in a clean and cohesive manner! I'm thankful a website service like this exists for people like me who are not designers but love the look/themes of a well-designed platform!

Comments: Started on the free plan and I was just having to much fun popping!!! I'm now on the pro plan and it is the best 20 bucks I will spend a month. I believe our customers want more than just an old looking email or ecard, it's ok now and then but what a treat to send them a Pop from Popular.

Great!!!!

Populr in Education

Dec 22, 2013
5/5
Overall

Comments:         I am just getting started with Populr and I am enjoying it! I can see so much great potential for using it in my school with faculty, staff, and students. My favorite thing so far is how you can integrate so many different mediums onto one page! When I have an important message to share that I want to be sure people hear correctly, I will be posting it on a new page!

Pros: I really like that I can place different media in the same document: Video clips; pictures; documents; and links. It is an easy way to put together a complete message!

Great program

Comments: I have found Populr a quick and easy way to create and send out information online. The personal one pagers (POPs) are versatile and great to use for personal use or for business. I have used Populr for everything from creating a sales POP for potential leads to party invitations. With a few easy steps I had an awesome webpage I can send out to whoever I needed.

Pros: Versatile Easy to use Integrates well across platforms Abundant features New features added regularly Great support

Populr is becoming indispensable to me

Overall

Comments: I've been using Populr off and on for a year now. It's taken a little while for me to figure out the best way to use it to communicate -- but it turns out, the answer is, lots of ways! Populr has become my go-to platform to share information -- sometimes with a group, and sometimes with just one person. It makes it easy to create a visually appealing page, and that makes it easy for my audience to connect and to act.

Pros: * Makes you think in chunks -- which is a great way for your audience to receive information * Flat-out easy to make information visually appealing * Audience finds it easy to receive information this way

Cons: * May change the way you think about communicating -- but that's not a bad thing!

So easy to use!

Comments: We decided to make a online birth announcement so that we can send this to everyone (family, friends, colleagues, etc) and attach pictures to this site. Making a birth announcement is easier than choosing a birth announcement card.

Pros: using own creativity support desk is very quick with answering questions

Cons: missing a google address uploadbutton for uploading all my google contacts in 1 time.

Populr for On-boarding new employees

Notes from Trying Populr

Nov 24, 2013
4/5
Overall

Comments: Overall, a great option. Users need to be pretty facile with technology, but not professional. I've used for personal and business purposes.

Pros: Easy to choose and set up templates. Examples are helpful in generating ideas. Sending and posting are easy and intuitive. Analytics are helpful, as are ability to edit teams and domains.

Cons: Only as good as the human user and also the logo/graphics you have available to you. In other words, Populr can make your content look great, but can't make a great logo for you if you don't already have one. Steep learning curve!

What The Web Has Been Waiting For!

Nov 23, 2013
5/5
Overall

Comments: I've been creating web pages for almost as long as there's been a World Wide Web - like, since 1995. I used to use programs like Dreamweaver to create HTML docs, but that's so... 2002! Now, whenever I need to knock out a fresh web doc, I go straight to Populr.

Pros: Just about every tool you can possibly need to create rich web docs can be found in Populr. Whether it's text, photos, video or embeds of almost any type, you can build your doc quickly and easily with Populr.

Cons: Oh, it could probably do with a little more font formatting, and sometimes I wish I had a little more control over how photos are cropped, but they've probably fixed both of those issues since the last time I used the service to create a new doc.

Populr: An Amazing Little Gem From Nashville

Nov 21, 2013
5/5
Overall

Comments: We have kicked the tires on quite a many single pages site builders. From inflexible flier based templates to full blown "Code-Em-Up" site builders, each offers a differentiating layer of capability and potential. Populr falls smack in the middle of that field and provides the perfect blend of simplicity and creative flexibility allowing both developers and non-developers alike a chance to produce some truly incredible online pages. Great things come out of Nashville, TN, and Populr is yet another fine example of just that. This young start-up is primed to shine and change the entire Micro publishing landscape in the process.

Pros: The simple click and edit builder also features an embed tool that lets the more seasoned professional integrate some very powerful third party solutions into the page while amateurs will also find it quite easy create truly amazing one page sites.

Cons: While you won't find a gigantic selection of themes just yet, the ones offered do provide a wide level of flexibility and differentiation. More themed templates are being developed at the time of this review.

Pops Rock - Plain and Simple

Oct 01, 2013
5/5
Overall

Comments: I used to write emails to prospects. Often I wouldn't hear back or the reply would be a polite, 'we'll call you'. Now I send Pops... they call me on the phone. They book me. The power of using a Pop to introduce a product or service is remarkable. It takes the message from ordinary, to insane. I've tested - heavily in fact - the conversion rate with both cold and warm leads and the Pop wins every time. Even when the answer is 'no', it's a much nicer 'no'. If someone has a good reason for not using Pops, could you tell me? I can't see the downside. Favorite Feature: "Duplicate". Man... I have a few templates and changing an entire proposal or 'Welcome' takes less than a minute. It has eliminated cancellations from my membership site. By using a Tracker URL I know when they are opened and I can't hardly believe how often people go back to see what they got as a Welcome once they join. Great product... Among the best (and this from a guy that uses a LOT of products). Barry Friedman www.GetMoreCorporateGigs.com www.ShowbizBluepring.com www.30DaysSugarFree.com

Pros: Easy to use Easy to duplicate Embed videos easily Customize as fast as you can type Beautiful templates

Cons: I wish I had at least one... I don't.
