There’s a minefield of information regarding wanting a website, and it can be convenient to go with Wix.

Why would you go through the bother and create a wordpress website alone or create it with someone like me?

After doing Graphic Design and Website Design for 20 years in full-time positions, you realise when someone promises perfection and something quick regarding technology – it’s too good to be true!


It would help if you did NOT go with Wix and other similar businesses that offer a low monthly price.

1) When you join these companies that offer a low monthly price. They target people who haven’t got the money to pay upfront but end up paying more in the long run for convenience. It’s like going with a catalogue company that sells white goods and furniture on a very cheap monthly tariff.

2) If you’re after getting your website showing up on page 1 of Google. It will help if you accept that you will have to embrace a slight learning curve for IT. It’s just the way it is but think of that learning curve as a way to save you time and money!

3) Wix websites will not help you get to the number one Google end. Also, Wix website loading speeds are terrible and will cause issues in your SEO.

4) You will also find that once your business grows, you want to scale up your website with new features. Wix websites won’t let you scale up, which will become a problem, trust me.

5) Once you spend all your time getting all your content on a Wix website, you are trapped as there is no way of exporting your content (unlike WordPress). You also won’t own the files (as in your content) as it is all kept on their server.

6) If you work with me, I can set you up with a wordpress website on your hosting account. You should always keep your website on your hosting server in case of disputes.

6) If you go with Wix and other companies, you will spend more time and effort. To achieve the same thing with any self-owned website, wordpress websites will win all day long.

7) Wix tools are limited in their SEO with WordPress; they are free and have premium plugins to assist you with SEO efforts.

8) With Wix, you are very limited regarding the flexibility of adding something complicated like a sophisticated search tool.

9) Wix’s short learning curve seduces people, but I reckon you will regret taking that route in the long run.

Hope this helps
