About Adobe Business Catalyst

Business Catalyst (BC) is an all-in-one business website and online marketing solution, built for web designers. Using our unified platform and without back-end coding, you can build everything from amazing websites to powerful online stores, beautiful brochure-ware sites to lead generation mini-sites.

Adobe Business Catalyst Review

Adobe Business Catalyst is a great offering by Adobe. It is a solid blend between a powerful SaaS (software-as-a-service) based content management system and a website builder. With tons of integrated functionality, it's a very good option to consider for those in the market for an inexpensive but powerful cloud solution.

Features

Adobe Business Catalyst offers integrated ecommerce, email marketing, CRM, web apps and a very good array of reporting and analytics options, you'd be hard pressed to find a better solution at a reasonable cost.

Pricing

Pricing for Business Catalyst at the time of this review is between $12-40 (on a monthly plan).  For those who pay yearly, you receive a slight discount. For what you receive for the pricing, I think this is priced accurately and reasonably and definitely competes with other platforms. Enterprise pricing is not advertised on their website and requires you contact them for a quote.

Who is it for?

Small to Midsize Businesses looking for a powerful all-in-one solution from a reputable and reliable provider, should give Business Catalyst consideration. For the price, the feature set is very rich and personally, I think it out performs the bulk of the other similarly marketed products out there. 

Pros and Cons

Pros

  • Tons of features
  • Inexpensive considering what you get for your hard earned dollar
  • Reliable vendor (Adobe's not going anywhere any time soon)
  • Good help / support

Cons

  • Could be overwhelming for newbies
  • Not as easy to use as some other builders

Conclusion

This isn't a drag and drop, super easy to use system but it's not difficult either. For a walkthrough of the features and how things look, view the video below where I guide you through the product from start to finish and explore the functionality.
