Choosing the Right Website Platform for Your Small Business

Vastly Different Platforms with Their Own Unique Purposes

Let’s explore some of the most popular platforms and their distinct advantages:

We understand that every small business has unique needs and goals. For example, how and where SEOs work in Wix are very different to WordPress. That’s why I offer a variety of website design options to ensure the perfect fit for your business. 

Website Design with WordPress

WordPress has long been the industry go-to and has a reputation for its incredible functionality and flexibility. Ideal for businesses looking for a highly customisable website, WordPress offers a vast range of themes and plugins, but we prefer to use the most basic theme so we can customise a website by having more control.  It has a range of powerful SEO capabilities and scalability, but the learning curve with WordPress is said to be tougher.

Editors Note – WordPress gives the most control over a website and can be the cheapest option.  

Website Design with Wix

Wix is perfect for those who prefer simplicity without compromising on design quality. This platform offers an intuitive drag-and-drop interface, making it easy for anyone to create a stunning website. With a wide array of templates and built-in features, Wix is an excellent choice for small businesses looking to establish an online presence quickly and efficiently. It’s particularly well-suited for service-based businesses, artists, and small retailers.

Editors Note –  I recently ducked back into a clients Wix an some major issues stuck out.

  • The SEO checklist in Wix is not a complete solution 
  • You still need to follow the basics of website design regarding colour, fonts and sizing.
  • Responsive websites still lack the customisation.

Website Design with Squarespace

Squarespace is known for its sleek, modern designs and all-in-one platform. It’s perfect for small businesses that need a visually appealing website with integrated e-commerce, blogging, and portfolio features. Squarespace’s templates are professional and polished, ideal for creatives, restaurants, and boutique businesses.

Editors Note – I have used all of these website platforms over time. I found Squarespace the hardest to customise and the most expensive option over all.
