    Pros
    They are professional and have excellent technology that fits my needs. Their platform allows for users to monetize it and Brilliant Directories is not counting my potential revenue.
    The customer support people are great. Also, their Facebook page has a very active community that shares ideas and is there to help you 24/7.
    Overall, Brilliant Directories is the best solution for me. I used the free trial option for a week and loved it. It is so easy to use and it's an awesome product even without the VIP Add-Ons.
    Cons
    No page templates to choose from. Html coded) - No Trial/Free membership - Sitemap not working with search engines.
    A little concerned about the 10gigs of space and bandwidth, that seems very low for a directory.
    We really don't have any major or minor complaints about the software. I was expecting that something so complex, with tons of features, would be a nightmare to set up and run.

    The Perfect Directory Builder Software for the Non-Techie Newbie!

    Reviewed a month ago

    I've never built a directory or listing site before but when I finished, I was so impressed with my work that I couldn't even believe I built what I was looking at! If I had blog content already completed, I literally could have launched the first night I first started working with the software.

    Pros

    I love this software because it is easy to use and has the perfect format for building an online directory. It is also easy to customize and personalize. I didn't have to know anything about what a directory should have as they've included everything. All that's missing is your original content.

    Cons

    I prefer front-end builders. I normally use Divi, Elementor, Blocksy, etc and I can move so much quicker. It took me a while to finish which was due to the constant flipping to the front to evaluate my work.

    Great software for Directory builders and membership sites.

    Reviewed 2 months ago

    The number one choice for directory software. I've been looking for a suitable directory software for some time. The only viable alternatives to Brilliant directories are either way too expensive or WordPress based. For me, WordPress is simply too risky to use for a business making money unless you are a WordPress ace or employ someone else to manage it. I've had numerous bad experiences with WordPress...

    Pros

    It's Saas based and very easy to get started with.

    Cons

    There are some confusing plans to choose from. It's not cheap, but it could be worse. At the end of the day, you get what you you like pay for!

    Overall Good but Functionally Lacking

    Reviewed 7 years ago

    I rated overall low because after a year and a half we still don't have full functionality. Our issue is with the built in Payment gateway. Though my present state of our directory I should have realized would be an issue because when I bought the directory Dennis had to invoice me through "PayPal" as the payment gateway would not process any of my cards, not once but twice. When we first bought it...

    Great and Comprehensive Software for Building a Directory!

    Reviewed 17 days ago

    My overall experience with Brilliant has been great so far. I love that there is a huge knowledgebase filled with articles and videos to help users create and enhance their directory websites. There is also a large and helpful community of users and Brilliant Directories staff members to help along the way.

    Pros

    I am impressed with how customizable Brilliant Directories is and how easy it is to create and manage a professional directory website. I love the huge library of add-ons which allows Brilliant Directories users to create a website that meets their specific needs and use cases. Also, the incorporation of customer feedback into developing a mature product is obvious and just one of Brilliant Directories' many strengths. Brilliant Directories makes it fairly easy to create a directory website that looks fantastic and functions well.

    Cons

    I haven't been using Brilliant Directories for a long time. But, so far there's not much that I don't like about the platform. In the past, I would have said that I'd like to see Brilliant Directories prioritize the ability to connect with other software. But that appears to be changing/improving very soon with the continued development of the API.
