We love this about the platform because it makes us feel at ease handing over websites to our clients knowing they can make their own simple edits to their websites.

Mobile responsiveness is so important as most of your website visitors are viewing on their phones. You can create a custom experience for your users who view on mobile because the platform allows you to individually hide/show elements on mobile and desktop.
