    The first question I think you already answered but I just want to clarify do you have unlimited pages with the software. I know you're affiliate but before I put in all the work I need to know how much are there plans/cost.

    Hey, Tom. If we wanted to build a member-based web store, does Duda provide a login option and a application forms integration?

    Hey Tom. Thanks for providing this video it was really helpful. Your delivery is nice and relaxing and easy to digest the info. Thanks for the Duda info. I'm just starting up with it and starting to build an Ad agency with it. Seems to be very easy to use. The only problem I've had so far is moving a store Icon to the far left of the home screen, where it previously was before. Guess I'll just watch a few more videos. It stops allow me to move it at approximately 1.5 inches from the left border.

    The agency account is the only one you can export files for delivery to a hosting company or a client and it is 800 bucks for a year. That is expensive. The builder is nice but the no export feature makes it useless for small companies or designers.

    Hi Thomas ….

    Thanks for the post.

    I just subscribed since you seem to be well knowledgeable in Duda and for the type of questions I am interested in . … and also eager to know about the blog features you mention are good not great … or in other words work in progress.

    For the homepage, I have not had major issues with elementor in wordpress. But, where my interests are now, are more in the blog page and the ways you can customize it , like making the blog page more dynamic than just a list of entries ….

    So, I hope you keep posting as things come along.

    warm regards

    Would you recommend this for a Freelancer trying to scale up and become a local design agency? Would it be considered affordable for clients, I cater to small businesses that do not have a very large budget.

    So you can migrate a full site with hundreds or thousands of content pages from WP to Duda? I see there is an RSS feed for blogs. But I'm referring to the main content from the site. Thanks.

    Hey Thomas, Great video, I've learnt a lot. I've been considering using Duda for building website for business clients. Have you ever used Divi or elementor? How do you think this compares to it? Also what would you say to clients that might object since Duda is not on WordPress? It seems like Duda is a proprietory software that forces you to stay on their platform and use their hosting in order to keep the website. The client might feel nervous investing in something that they can't really get off of if they wanted to.

    I Definitely Need Your Opinion! Hello Thomas! Nice video, thank you for the information and great review. Also good comments here too from your subscribers. I need your super opinion. I do printing and traditional marketing for our clients and business owners like placement of ads in our magazine, post cards, posters, flyers and other promotional product, but, because the digital trends on this days we start getting in digital marketing, basic google products and social media platforms to help our small business clients with small budgets. I am not a programmer or have a IT career and experience, I am a passionate entrepreneur, I love marketing and I like challenges. We build two websites in WP, we use BlueHost Hosting and Elementor website builder and plugins for Security and other stuff. It has not been easy to learn but not impossible, I am not saying WP is a bad option but it takes time, knowledge, experience and risk to build and manage a website in WP. I am worry about security, back ups and other stuff to keep running the website in a safely way and also we receive several emails from the plugins with notifications, also I have been read about installing several plugins to block hackers bothering WP websites. Since I am not a programmer I don’t know if I need to keep doing it in WP or it is going to be too much for me, I am a marketer we can say with savy skills, but, I do not want to be worry about all this stuff or worry to have the right professional and costly staff talking in the technical area to control it if I am not there to do it myself if I learn the basics. The big question is for you and your Subscribers, since I am not a 100% knowledgeable programmer, do I need to fine a platform like duda or SquareSpace even if I have to invest more for the platform, technical resources and team back up but to not worry about Security, Hackers, Back Up, Plug-ins and Updates? Please help me I need to take a decision soon if I have to keep learning and dealing with WP to making happen or find a more automated platform to start my DM agency? If yes, what’s technically, manageable and profitable better for us, duda or SquareSpace or Wix?. Thank you in advance for your time and help. I Will appreciate and value any suggestions and recommendations. Apologies about my long comment and questions.

    Hi Tom, I am planning to start Freelancing and stumbled on duda for making drag and drop site. As a beginner, I find the platform intuitive for some parts and haven't really explored yet to those parts new to me. I just wanna thank you for sharing this walkthrough. I guess I'll be keeping myself busy exploring this during my free time. Thanks again and keep safe!

    They just copied Elementor and charged for it. And not only that but they copied Elementor and said you can only use it if you HOST your site with them! Meaning, you're stuck if anything ever goes wrong with your relationship with them. If for any reason you decide you don't want to deal with them anymore – you're stuck. You can't get your website out because it's in their proprietary system.

    That's why I would NEVER use this – no matter how good it was. Why? Because you don't want a for-profit company to sink it's teeth into a major part of your business. Then you're at their whim. They decide at some point they're going to raise prices – there's nothing you can do. They decide they're going to drop features you like or not add features you want… there's nothing you can do.

    No matter how good they are – people have to think about *portability*. With WordPress you can move anywhere anytime. If you decide you don't like your current web host – you can move very easily with WordPress. You decide you want a feature WordPress doesn't provide – chances are a third-party provides it. You decide you don't like WordPress's price… well, it's free, so go make a donation to them if you like.

    But when you're tied into private for-profit companies like this, who make their living offering "plans" and charging their customers – history shows they will become greedy and they will eventually do everything in their power to suck every last dime out of you they think they can get away with.

    Plus Elementor for WordPress can do all this and more – and without all Duda's restrictions and limitations.

    duda means "Doubt" in Spanish…. after seeing all their work with scammers like "paginas amarillas" yellow pages, selling low quality pages for 300 dollars / month …. it figures ……
