WordPress, Wix and SquareSpace are all examples of CMS’s (Content Management Systems).
Wix and Squarespace have similarities in their easy-to-use interface, low-cost options and accessibility to new web designers, but also in their shortcomings with respect to scalability and customisation. Both are better suited for simple websites, such as blogs and portfolios, but SquareSpace offers more eye-catching designs and Wix has more variety of templates.
Both are inferior when it comes to SEO, lacking the advanced settings that are built into WordPress plugins. Only 1.4% of Wix sites get organic traffic!
For complete control over your website, for the potential for customisation and scalability, and for the availability of a wide range of plugins and features, WordPress is by far the best option. WordPress is less beginner-friendly: we’ve invested the time and energy in becoming complete experts in WordPress development to deliver you custom WordPress sites so you don’t have to learn an entirely new skill!
So in a nutshell: if you’re only interested in having a basic website, with limited functionality then you can build and manage it without the need of experienced developers in Wix or SquareSpace, all by yourself. If you’re looking for a website with more complex functionality, a unique design and lower monthly fees then we’re here to help! (-unless learning how to use WordPress is on your bucket list 😉)
