Pros

It allows you to prepare a solid prototype of a landing page/pages which will help you keep your different designs for multiple pages organized.
A lot of tools which help do everything you can possibly think of when it comes to marketing campaign etc.
WYSWIG editor is really nice when you can figure out what, and how to do it (but creating custom stuff can be hard).

Cons

Writing something like a custom solution could be tricky (or so it feels) so you may need to involve developer or someone familiar with creating custom themes/webpages.
I would prefer if they would rewrite their tutorials - it can be really weird sometimes - feels too hard, or like they're forgetting something in between the next steps you're supposed to do.

While the tool is pretty easy to use for someone without development skills, the customer support is fast and very helpful.

The price was initially a hard pill to swallow for our upper management, so customized pricing to try all the features and test for success would be nice.

Not having an undo button. Also if you accidentally delete you can't recover your page. You just lose everything.

I like that you can create so many assets and the templates link pages needed and provide some many different containers to create content with. Campaign tracking is great and the analytics are as well.

Cons

Creating assets are a bit complex. Selecting certain containers can be difficult to edit. Some elements are a little complex to change and fix.

I like using the pre-built templates but then being able to customize them to suit our needs. There are a lot of features that make the templates work great.

The training series is good, but it is not that easy to learn how to use the software. I don't care for the use of micro-themes to change font colors, alignment, background colors, etc.

I love how easy it is with Ion to create a very compelling, interactive landing page to help with lead generation. The customer support team is great as well! We have had many cases where we needed custom implementation to hook in other APIs or wanted custom development and their team has produced great quality work for us.

Cons

I would not recommend Ion for complete websites, that isn't what Ion was made for. You really want Ion for campaigns and landing pages. So please consider your use-cases thoroughly.

ion is super easy to get started with and takes out the complexity of building webpages from scratch. The time saved alone is worth it. Any time we have had a question or issue with the app, the customer support team was very responsive and helped us work through the problem.

The interfaces are a little dated - I would love to see a face lift (especially to the campaign and creative performance reports).

Great customer service. Ion is always there to help us when we have a question whether it is a technical issue or just looking for suggestions on the best way to use the platform, The pages are super customizable and they have a ton of templates to choose from with several different use cases.

Cons

There is a definitely a learning curve with using this platform and building experiences. They do offer video training to help but there are gaps in knowledge when you first start out.

I build pages for different partners very frequently. ION is a very easy to use tool which helps in creating pages within minutes. Recently we built a Landing Page request form which all our partners use to send request for new page. It's very convenient to manage all the pages & create exports.
Customer service is always well informed, and has always been able to resolve my concerns or provide the needed answers in a very timely manner.

This is an incredibly powerful tool, but it is lacking some valuable UI tools and simplification. Visual CSS editing tools are great, but it would be nice to have them incorporated in the theme editor (or let customers use FTP to upload themes so we can use our own preferred text editor to edit and manage CSS).

Could use more clarity in selection and placement tools.

Pros

Powerful toolset
Full control over look and feel

Cons

UI is complicated and overly dense
