Starting Gate Marketing receives requests to migrate websites from WordPress to Wix every week and bid against WordPress agencies for projects. We are always asked, “Why Wix over WordPress,” or “Why Do You Only Design in Wix.”
Here are our top 10 reasons:
Cost: the vast majority of Wix users can make updates to their sites quickly and not incur the costs of having an agency make changes for them. we have literally trained grandmothers on updating their sites in just one hour.
All new features to Wix are automatically updated so new apps, features and plugins do not require an agency to update.
The days of spending $5,000 and up on WordPress websites when you can have a Wix site that looks and performs as well or better at half the cost are fading like Blockbuster Video Stores.
Ease of Use: Wix is undeniably the easiest platform for users to manage and update. Our one hour Zoom training included in all new projects will show you it is as easy as posting on Facebook.
SEO: Our SEO team is led by a former consultant to Wix and Wix sites can rank as well as any other platform and this has been confirmed by senior Google Executives.
Security: Wix is the most secure platform and more secure than WordPress. Read More
Sites are automatically backed up.
Over 200 Million Registered Users
Customer Service: The Only Platform that offers phone support. As a Wix Agency, we receive priority support and have a dedicated account executive.
WIX: Total revenue for the full year 2020 was $988.8 million, compared to $761.1 million for the full year 2019. NASDAQ: WIX Currently $254 per share.
Innovation: Wix continues to add new features and build partnerships, most recently announced a partnership with Google My Business.
You Own Your Site: I mention this because WordPress agencies always spread this lie and it is just 100% false and is outlined in Wix terms and conditions.
Product Development: Wix is the only platform that has integrated their product development team with their users from around the world. They regularly schedule meetings with me and agencies to get invaluable feedback on their new products from end users. They understand that to reach their goal of becoming the number one platform in the world that the ideas and feedback of the people using their products is key to their success.
In summary, I see Wix becoming the Apple, Google, Amazon, or Microsoft of Web Design Platforms.
