Here’s a question I get asked daily. The answer to this question really depends on a number of things; what stage your business is at, what type of business is it and where do you want your business to be in a few years’ time?
What stage is your business at?
If you are a startup working from home, budget is likely to be your biggest constraint. If you have had a business for a few years and you want to move it up a notch, you are likely to want to spend a little more to ensure that you get the best website to suit your needs and to future proof you.
What type of business is it?
Do you need to sell products or services online? Is your business very visual e.g. photography or design? How do your customers find you right now? What do you sell? How big is your organisation currently (number of employees, scale of operations)? All of these answers will help guide you towards a choice between Wix or WordPress.
Where do you want your business to be in a few years?
If you have plans to double in size in the next few years, that will change what type of website you need. On the other hand, if you are, say, a local reflexologist and you intend to work flexibly to suit your work/life balance and you get most of your customers via referrals, your website can be pretty static and stay the same for the next few years.
