Yola Website Examples
I’ve just finished my in-depth Yola review and I hasten to make up a list of exemplary Yola websites for you to see how your future website will look like if you choose this website builder as your site publishing partner.
Frankly speaking, it was pretty hard to sift through all those not-so-beautiful (according to modern web design standards) websites featured in the Yola Site Gallery. Please don’t get me wrong. I’m not saying all websites built with Yola are outdated, but I think that this section (their Site Gallery) should be updated with some newer Yola-powered websites as soon as possible.
1. Willow Park Preschool
Willowparkpreschool.com is a dynamic, non-profit website operated by a parent run cooperative in the Willow Ridge Community, Calgary SE. At Willow Park PreSchool they believe that learning-based play is an important part of a child’s development, therefore they strive to provide children with a stimulating and caring environment.
Their website is joyful and bright. It provides potential and current customers with vital information about the PreSchool: teachers, calendar, registration, programs etc. It looks like it was developed by children for children, only the navigation system tells the opposite. The website doesn’t look modern, but still it serves its purpose.
2. Tannerie Wood
Tanneriewood.com is a simple yet informative website of the townhouse community found in Upper Dublin Township near the suburbs of Philadelphia. The project is geared towards the needs of homeowners and those users, who are potentially interested in getting a house there.
The website encompasses all the information homeowners would like to know about the townhouse community. It looks quite standard, with bright photos of the community, landscapes and infrastructure standing against the light background. The project is logically-structured, providing quick access to the most important and widely-searched sections. These include Home, About, Events, Documents, Contractors, Links, Contact and Other. This is a nice sample of a community website oriented on user requirements.
3. Karma Lottery
Karma Lottery initially drives user attention as the website of the Orphan Foundation. This is a non-profit organization that sees its mission in solving adoption issues to help orphans find families. They also try their best to provide any kind of support for such families, including financial help, cultural and educational background. Donations users make to support the charitable organization help them complete the task.
The website design completely adheres to its mission. It provides only the required info, which is conveniently divided into several pages – About the Children, Adoption, Volunteering, About the Foundation, Contact and Store. Whatever info you need, you will surely find it here. To make the project more interesting to browse, the developers have integrated videos and photo collections featuring families with adopted kids as well as other related events. Adoption stories deserve special attention as well. The only disadvantage is too small font size, which makes the text not quite easy to read. However, this is not what users look for here.
4. Transportation Children’s Center
Transchildrencenter.org is a website of the Boston-based Childcare Center that serves the needs of working parents and their kids, irrespective of their age. Founded in 1986, the organization still aims at providing a safe and entertaining environment to children via using the services of childcare professionals. The major mission of the Center is to ensure maximum level of comfort, total security as well as harmonious physical, social, emotional and intellectual development.
Whatever information you’d like to find out about the Center, you can do that directly at the website. The project encompasses several sections that provide the utmost info about the organization and its missions. These include Home, About Us, Program, General Information, Careers, Current Families, Contact Us, Schedule Tour, Our Faculty. Thus, you can not only discover new facts about the Center, but even book a tour to see it with your own eyes. That’s really convenient for most parents, who care about their kids’ safety, while being at work.
5. California Tacos and More
Calitacosandmore.com is a website of a restaurant, offering tacos to California residents. The website provides useful info about the dishes and drinks included into their menu as well as about the restaurant itself. There are lots of special offers and bonuses you’ll come across here, while placing an order online.
The Homepage of the website attracts user attention from the very first sight due to its bright and coloured slider featuring the Menu. You don’t have to spend much time browsing other website sections to find the list of drinks and dishes to order – they are provided “here and now” for your convenience. You may also find access to social networks on the homepage as well as to special buttons, letting you place an order or book party/catering services. A good sample of a standard restaurant website created with Yola!
6. Country Music Treasures
Country Music Treasures will certainly be an interesting resource to browse for music fans who would like to buy CDs of popular country musicians. This is a web store that sells multiple music-related products. Along with country music CDs, customers can also shop for other genres here, including Polka, Gospel, Bluegrass, Christmas songs and other CDs to come up to any preferences.
To simplify the shopping process, the web store developers have divided the disks into several categories. The Featured Titles are available on the homepage and everyone can click the required CD cover to view the product details before buying it. A convenient drop-down menu contributes to the ease of search as well. It is possible to register for your personal web store account to quickly complete the order here. However, it would be reasonable to add customer reviews and testimonials along with shopping/payment guidelines to make the process even more convenient for new subscribers.
7. Tiffany Disette
Tiffany Disette is a kind of a portfolio website that was created by Tiffany with the only purpose – to showcase her talent and to present her career achievements to the target audience. As a singer, she tried her best to post as much info as possible about her biography, life, goals. There are also several sections here, where everyone can listen to her songs and view media files – videos and images.
The homepage cannot but drives user attention by a large retro-like photo of the singer. As you scroll down the page, you will come across Tiffany’s resume and some of her featured songs. Social media buttons are available here as well. By the way, the combination of colored and black-and-white images looks contrasting and very impressive. This is a nice sample of a portfolio website launched with Yola website builder.
8. Old Style Conjure Shop
Oldstyleconjure.com is a web store, offering a broad range of Traditional Conjure Products. The assortment of the store is quite extensive and there is much users can find here, namely roots, curios, herbs, oils, traditional powders, gels, lotions, soap, candles, scrubs, washes and more.
The web store is logically-structured, with all the main and most popular products being presented on the homepage. The products are displayed along with descriptions, price specification and quality pictures. There is also an opportunity to sort out the products by different parameters here to cut down the shopping time. Donate option is also available at the website for all users, who wish to financially support web store performance and development. The website creates a pleasant impression from the very first sight, encouraging users to keep browsing it further.
9. Tallahassee Swing Band
Tallahasseeswing.com – is a website belonging to the Tallahassee Swing Band, which is one of the most favorite wedding and dance bands in North Florida. Created in the 1970s, the band has expanded its repertoire a lot and it now plays jazz and swing along with polkas, waltzes, rock ‘n roll, and Motown.
The website provides all kinds of information about the band, available in separate sections. These are Videos, Songs, Photos, Musicians, American Legion and more. The About section delivers interesting facts about the band and the history of its development, while the Contact Us section allows booking the band’s shows via filling out the online form or getting in touch with the managers of the band in person. There are also interesting and entertaining videos featuring the band’s performance as well as the schedule of its shows found on the homepage. Quality website for music fans!
10. Villa Heliconia
Villa Heliconia sees its mission in presenting one of the best places for rest to everyone who plans to visit Bali Island. The website is not large and does not contain multiple pages. This, however, is not needed here as all the info potential tourists may require is available on two website pages only.
The very first page showcases an integrated video presentation of the place. This is a smart solution as a video can tell much more than a thousand words. This is where you will see the luxurious rest facilities, contemporary amenities, impressive landscapes and a list of services the villa offers to tourists. Those interested in the detailed info about the place can visit the Tripadvisor website, the link to which is provided on the homepage. All in all, this Yola-powered project looks quite simple yet informative and it definitely evokes the desire to find out more about the villa.
Personally, I have mixed impressions about Yola. On one hand, it is easy to create a good looking website. From the other side it’s only suitable for flat websites, due to structural limitations in its templates. But there’s a great ecommerce option, which will surprise you for certain, offering a number of innovative decisions.
Despite all Yola’s benefits, there are considerable downsides, when compared with the competitors. The navigation system is one of the most disorganized of all I have seen before. Everything works, but feels clunky. All I’m saying is that Yola is not the perfect solution on the website builder market.
I hope you enjoyed my modest Yola-powered sites compilation :). If you’re a happy owner of a Yola site, don’t hesitate to contact the site builder’s support to get featured on their official blog.
