Wordpress is one of the most well-known website platforms besides Wix that offers mobile-friendly websites and the ability to design custom websites. WordPress was initially released in 2003 and was originally designed to be a blog based platform which it remained as for quite a long time.
As a matter of fact it was not until almost 2012 when WordPress started bringing more features to make it more suitable for business websites and not just blogs.
Today WordPress is highly customizable and is capable of nearly anything with the right amount of time spent on development. The only real downside to WordPress over Wix is the time involved in development and the time involved to manage the website properly.
As with any website software, there are always things that need adjusted as WordPress is updated so there really is no way around that regardless of the platform you choose.
We are more than capable of building clients websites on WordPress (this website is built on WordPress) but it’s more expensive and takes longer to complete the work and go live vs. a Wix based website.
From a SEO and performance standpoint, it does not make a difference. We can make a Wix website outperform competitors all day long. It’s all about how the website is built, not the platform its built on.
