Wix or WordPress?

Wix… love it or hate it? I must admit, I was a WordPress convert many years ago and managed lots of websites in WordPress over the years. I first started playing around with Wix for The Design Grove because I wanted to see what it was like. There have been a multitude of iterations of www.thedesigngrove.com over the last 6 months and I am still messing about tweaking bits, but that’s the great thing about Wix. It’s so much fun and adaptable it’s almost addictive.

I created this website in Wix and since launching myself into the world of freelancing have come across many businesses that use it, it’s trademark simplicity can be seen a mile off! But if you’re looking for something easy to get started with, Wix is a great tool.

WordPress takes a little bit, not a lot, more technical know how to get a website exactly as you want it. You don’t have to be able to write code, but you do get into the realms of style sheets and Hex codes. There are lots of templates on websites like www.themeforest.com that can get you half way there but I like to work alongside trusted third party web building guru’s like Urban Soul Design, to give me and my clients exactly what they want. Dependent on budget of course.

So, if you’re in the market for a new website but you’re not sure where to start, get in touch for a free consultation, evaluation of your current site and together we can work towards something to suit all aspirations and budgets!
