CHOOSING THE RIGHT PLATFORM
Choosing the right platform to build your website on is imperative to your brands success. As an Web Design Agency, we see so many clients who were wrongly informed or advised by other designers or developers. Choosing the wrong platform can result in poor performance or lack of “control”. One thing we want to make sure of, is that our clients can manage the day to day operations of their new website. So listen up clients, here we will list the benefits of using wither WordPress or Shopify for your new website.
Both WordPress & Shopify have their own strengths and weaknesses, but they are a perfect fit for either a service based brand or a product based brand. Which one is right for you? Let’s take a closer look.
WordPress is an open-source content management system (CMS) that powers more than 40% of all websites on the internet. It’s known for its flexibility and scalability, making it a popular choice for all kinds of brands. Here are some of the benefits of using WordPress:
Flexibility: WordPress is highly customizable, allowing you to create any type of website you need. Whether you’re building a blog, an e-commerce site, or a portfolio website, WordPress can handle it all.
Cost-effective: WordPress is free to use and many of the themes and plugins available are also free. This means that you can build a professional-looking website without breaking the bank.
SEO-friendly: WordPress is designed with SEO in mind, making it easy for you to optimize your website for search engines. There are also many SEO plugins available to help you with this task.
Large community: WordPress has a large community of developers, designers, and users who can help you with any questions or problems you may encounter.
We recommend WordPress to all service based brands and to some brands with digital products.
Shopify is an e-commerce platform that allows you to build an online store and sell your products or services. While it’s not as flexible as WordPress, Shopify has many features that make it a great choice for brands that focus on e-commerce. Here are some of the benefits of using Shopify:
E-commerce features: Shopify is designed specifically for e-commerce, so it has all the features you need to build an online store. This includes features like product management, inventory tracking, and payment processing.
User-friendly: Shopify is very easy to use, even if you don’t have a lot of technical knowledge. This makes it a great choice for small businesses that want to build an online store without hiring a web design agency.
