Pricing

Hibu is much cheaper than paying for a website designer, but a bit more expensive than a typical do-it-yourself website builder. They offer separate packages which include a one-time website design fee and a further monthly fee, depending on which services the customer is interested in. A premium package with add-on’s can cost up to $1,800 for the first year, with the initial web design fee included.  A less extensive package with fewer features but with full service assistance cuts those yearly costs to less than half of the premium package.

Design and build services currently FREE for all packages. Limited-time only.*

Bottom Line

Hibu focuses on building and maintaining websites for small and mid-sized business owners who lack technical expertise or time.

Hibu offers full service website design and updating, with a do-it-yourself option for those who are interested in making future changes on their own. Its SEO tools are very basic, but its host of other digital marketing services are ideal for local businesses. Hibu is a bit more expensive than most do-it-yourself website builders, but they do take a lot of the burden off of business owners who prefer to focus on other day-to-day matters.

Hibu offer multiple digital marketing services beyond just building a website. We created a site that also included SEO and display advertising. However, I found it a bit over complicated and drives you to speaking to customer services vs. a DIY platform.

Builder was incredibly user friendly and support was helpful but quality was somewhat lacking and may not have been best for the price.
