Quick Tip - Wix or Wordpress: Which platform should you choose for your website?


YOU NEED A WEBSITE. PERIOD.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ If you are serious about growing your creative business - you need a website. Even if it's a basic one.⁠⠀ ❔So, which platform should you choose - Wix or Wordpress?⁠⠀ I use both platforms myself so let me share my two cents.⁠⠀ ✨ Wix⁠⠀ ✦Wix is great if you want a simple, no jhanjhat website. It is great for those who have zero technical knowledge and are looking for an economical option.⁠⠀ ✦If you are just starting, you should use Wix as it offers all features needed for beginners. ⁠⠀ ✦You can easily create an ecommerce store, sell physical as well as digital products, book appointments etc.⁠⠀ ✦Designing a website on Wix is very easy with their drag & drop feature.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ ✨Wordpress:⁠⠀ ✦Wordpress is great for bigger stores which require a lot of customisation. ⁠⠀ ✦Using Wordpress is also very easy once you have mastered the basics. ⁠⠀ ✦If you are not a "techie" then you will need a freelancer handy to run updates, backups and take care of things as Wordpress is more prone to malware attacks & hacks ( I have faced this twice myself).⁠⠀ ✦A Wordpress website is more expensive as you have to buy hosting + hire a designer unless and until you plan to design it yourself. ⁠A decent website can cost about ₹20k-1L + a monthly hosting fee.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ 👉🏻I recommend that you start your online presence with a wix website once you figure out how you wish to grow your business & what features you require in a website you can upgrade to wordpress. ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ If you have any questions about building a website for your brand, do feel free to ask and I'll be happy to help!⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Love,⁠⠀ Shreya⁠⠀
