Description

Build the website you always wanted. Sparkle is the best Mac website builder.

Forget everything you know about building websites, just start creating. No code, no jargon, all visual.

Updating websites used to be slow and painful. Aren’t you tired of fighting your Wordpress install? Introducing Sparkle, the visual website builder for people who don’t (usually) build websites.

Your website is better with Sparkle because:


1. Your website is stunning

Bring your website to life with stunning parallax animation and video that plays while scrolling. Make your images stand out by automatically removing their background. Support dark mode in your site to embrace visitor preferences.


2. Your website is more visible
 
With Sparkle's built-in SEO Assistant and SEO targeting, no special knowledge is required to get your site to be Google's best new friend. Sparkle also codes very tightly, nerd friends will be impressed.


3. It's easy to make money
 
Sparkle has built-in tools to add members-only sections, payment and subscription buttons, and shopping carts from the leading commerce providers, plus table, property and appointment booking. Get your online business going in minutes.


4. Your website is faster
 
An average Wordpress mobile site has a Google PageSpeed score of 31, versus 77 for Sparkle, which reflects better Web Vitals support. Sparkle sites average 1.3 seconds to show content versus 3.9 seconds for Wordpress. Yes it is possible to make a Wordpress site fast, but who will do it? How much will it cost? Sparkle sites are fast out of the box, even on inexpensive web hosting.


5. You save money
 
Wordpress might be free, but it has significant hidden costs. Many website builders require paid additions for performance, security, or even for simpler page elements. Sparkle is not free, but has everything your site needs built-in.


6. Your website is more secure (and privacy minded)

It's no secret Wordpress is not very secure. But how bad is it? In June 2021 an average of 8 new vulnerabilities were discovered every day, in Wordpress, themes or plugins. Sparkle sites are so called "static": fast, not hackable. An average Wordpress site leaks your visitor activity to third parties, any cookie checker will show this. Sure you can buy plugins to plug the leaks, but in Sparkle it's all built in.

To date? the best app

I do not know these guys anymore than I know any Martians. And I have played with other website buiders enough.

Sparkle is the BEST.
Their support and honesty is the BEST.
They are not the ideal WYSIWYG but it is close enough. They do not shower you with templates, but there is enough you can download from ,their website (and it is not just a templte. It is a full website).

Look, if your website revenue is less than $10 million or $20 million, you can use Sparkle and absolutely no problem. If you are just an individual, you have nothing to compalin. Really nothing. I have spent 10 or 15 hours a day working on Sparkle and I can tell you this.

I really hope that they keep adding more features and keep their good attitude. And I fear that like many many other companies, they will get fat and happy and start being Martians. I hope that they do not. What else can I say. I did not give them five star because I want them to work hard and be better than what they are today. If they are really famous and still have the same attitude, I will come back and give them a five star. Not today. Keep at it Sparkle boys and girls. Make us happier - please!

SUPPORT IS WORLD CLASS!!!

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!!!!

Outstanding Value

I bought Sparkle after reading the good reviews, taking a chance it would be an acceptable substitute for iWeb, which I used to build my sites long ago. It IS--and it's even better. I've managed to make a really creative website that gets lots of compliments, thanks to Sparkle. I also love that there are built-in animations I can add to certain elements on the site (making a certain object shake or bounce, etc.) which is cute and eye-catching, perfect for my "brand." Visitors always comment on how they "love" the "interactive" quality (by which they mean something animating when they scroll). All I did was drag and drop and assign an animation, and re-tool a bit! So easy. It's worth noting that I did have a couple of questions, particularly when I was first uploading my site onto my server. I couldn't quite get it going, so I contacted customer service to ask. They walked me through the process and have helped me ever since with various aspects of site-building, without complaint. Outstanding level of support. Cannot recommend this software to Mac web builders highly enough.
