We're often asked about the best platform for your business. This depends on your business, what you need your website to accomplish, budget, and how much you want to be able to do on your own.
We build a lot of websites with WIX because it's so easy for clients to update on their own after the site is completed, thereby keeping costs down. However, it's not for everyone.
We create sites using WIX, Weebly, Squarespace, Shopify, and Wordpress. Why the variety? Because there is rarely a one-size-fits-all solution for every business.
WIX is our #1 choice for informational websites. A lot of small businesses need something simple and affordable that they can update on their own later. WIX offers
Shopify is our #1 choice for e-commerce websites if you have more than ten products. It offers a lot of great features and customizations for shipping and taxes, which can't be said for every platform.
Wordpress is a website superstar platform that has been around for a long time. It's used by tens of millions of users, and is well-known enough that a lot of people associate websites with WP. We've had clients move away from WP because it was difficult for them to update little things on the site themselves, but hiring someone for every small task can get expensive. For those who don't need or want to update a site on their own, WP has some terrific options for a variety of professional websites.
Weebly and Squarespace are both great platforms, though they offer fewer customizations than the others. Clients who request these platforms often do so because they are comfortable with them, which is also important to consider if you want to easily update the site on your own later.
If you'd like side-by-side comparisons and reviews of each platform, Website Builder Expert has detailed reviews that are honest and informative.
