I’ve been juggling a very demanding full time job, and a hobby that I love and get paid for, for 40 years. I am a professional salesman, and on the weekends, a professional children’s entertainer. I AM NOT A WEB DEVELOPER. I need tools that are powerful intuitive and easy to use. When I need help, I NEED HELP. I’ve been using Sparkle for a couple of years now, and every time I’ve needed help, their SUPPORT team has been WORLD CLASS. My day job is selling technology products to Fortune 500 companies—and Sparkle’s SUPPORT team is on a par with any of the SUPPORT teams that I’ve ever worked with, and I’m comparing them to teams that support mission critical multiple million dollar investments in infrastructure.

In particular, Duncan Wilcox is amazing! He is responsive, tenacious, and competent. I don’t even want to say how far and above the call of duty he will go, because I don’t want to set the bar TOO high for him and Sparkle, but what he did for me today was very, very impressive. He’s an inspiration for how I want to treat my customers in all of my endeavors.

The product itself is great. But if you’re going to run a business, small or large, and count on the product, YOU NEED GREAT SERVICE—and Sparkle delivers!!!!

If you want to sell items or have a login this isn’t for you

I’ll start off by saying you can create very nice looking websites very easily. However, this app is missing major features. Who do you you know that wants to just create a website without having forms to sell items, have registration or login features, or the ability to have small pop-up windows for additional information? This builder doesn’t even give you the option to add simple tabs to bring other information to the foregound without loading a completely different page. If you are looking for a truely functional ecommerce website builder this is not for you. A represenative informed me to add a shopping cart, I would have to use a 3rd party system like Shopify! Who wants to pay $80 a month to carry a few items? They are reasonably simple forms to add and create I’m supprised they left them off of this web design. I truely regret spending $79 dollars on this. Do yourself a favor and just learn wordpress.

Developer Response ,

First, very sorry about all the anger and frustration. Just to clarify, Sparkle is a one time purchase ($39.99 or $79.99), definitely not $80 per month. Sparkle is still very much growing, and while it's very capable it doesn't do everything. Believe it or not there are many areas where Sparkle doesn't have a built-in solution, and despite this thousands of people manage to build perfectly functional and useful websites, today. Using an external solution is the norm for something as complex as commerce, I think we could have found a solution by emailing about it further. There are free or inexpensive options, depending on what you need to do exactly. Anyway Sparkle's future is bright, and you are entitled to a refund so no need for regret.

Incredible tool!

Fantastic tool, well thought, well organized, well designed, with all kinds of built-in info on how to use it, works always, intuitive, incredible support. I love this program, not only because it does all I thought it would, but for all the things that I discovered it also can do. I put together a series of webs designed as platforms to deliver information within a framework that allows the users to understand how the information is organized and how and when to use it, and it worked like magic - I never worried about the program, it was just there, ready to do what I wanted it to do and more, allowing me to concentrate on the design of the webs. It is like driving a great car - you do not worry about the machine, you just enjoy the ride!
