Wix Vs WordPress

Wix and WordPress are two very big names and you might be wondering the key differences between the two of them. What is worth building your website on? We have lots of experience with both platforms and we can describe the pros and cons of both before you make the decision of what platform to go with.

WordPress Pros

WordPress has a broad range of functionality features that can be complexed. This means you can have systems that may require a lot of code or different plugins to be installed onto the site. WordPress also have some great templates and advanced customisation options which means you will be able to have the site looking and functioning exactly how you would like it to be. This is just scratching the surface of what WordPress can do for you and with our experience we can create any website you need using WordPress.

WordPress Cons

WordPress can be a little tricky to learn, but with our guidance you will be able to edit and customise anything you want. This is because we can teach you everything you will need to know. There is no dedicated support team there is only guides and forums but with us we can fix any problem you have. If you want an ecommerce site you will need to install external plugins to the site but again with us that is no problem as we can deal with this when building the site for you.

Wix Pros

Wix is easy to use and is aimed at non-technical users and no coding is required. Wix also has a dedicated support team so if at any point you run into a problem you can contact them to sort out the problem for you. It also has a built-in sales feature for ecommerce. Wix allows you to create none complexed websites quickly with little to no problems.

Wix Cons

Wix being a simplistic platform means that some features that you may want on your website may not be possible. The users on Wix also have less control over their own site, this is usually seen as a trade off for how easy it is to use the platform. The simplistic templates are tough to customise and can leave you with a website that doesn’t fit the theme of your business.


When you are building a website you want to know how your organic rankings will be effected once the site is fully built. By our experience WordPress is the better platform if not the best platform out there to give you the best chance at getting the results you want. With WordPress we can put Yoast onto your site that will allow you to edit metadata and it will give you guidance on what to change and improve on to make the page as optimised as possible.

Wix has a few plugins and apps you can use to optimise your site. An app called site booster has a few features that will help you optimise content on your site this feature costs but it isn’t a huge amount for what it is supplying you with.

For SEO we would comfortably say that WordPress is much better as the platform. It gives you much more freedom in what you can edit, change and optimise to ensure that Google is happy with the pages you are creating. WordPress is seen as one of the best platforms to use when you want to succeed in the organic rankings. With us we can help you reach all of your targets when it comes to SEO as we have years of experience in the field. If you want to know more about our seo services Click Here!


When it comes to design WordPress has no limit to what you can do you can customise your site however you want it. Not everything is simple to do but with our help we will be able to complete the complexed tasks for you so this will be no problem for you. With WordPress you are able to put your own stamp onto your site. With WordPress you can custom make anything you like and have it function in any way you like as well. Wix designs are quite limited and you may find yourself struggling to make your site look exactly how you want it. But the benefit of this is that when building pages, it is quite straight forward and simple so you can easily use the platform. At lot of people don’t mind sacrificing the look of the site when it is quick and easy to build a site.



Our Recommendations: In summery we believe that WordPress is the better platform to build your site on and although Wix is easier to use and may be quicker to put a site together. It doesn’t tick all the boxes for functionality and if you need a complexed system put onto the site, this may not always be possible with Wix. With WordPress we will be able to design and build the whole site for you. To find out more about our web design and development please go to our services page!
