Wix or Weebly, that is the question

143views

Getting your business online is a big step that must be taken in order to get your piece of the cyber pie. Thousands of shoppers are heading online instead of down the high street, so if you’re not on the World Wide Web you will be heading for failure pretty soon.

Getting your website together can be relatively simple thanks to the many options open to you. However, one of the most common debates is between two of the biggest online services for website creation, Weebly and Wix.

Both sites have their own advantages but when it comes down to putting your trust in them to get your foot through the door, you need to be sure that whether you choose Wix or Weebly, it is the right choice for you and your business.

User friendly system

Whichever option you choose at the end, it needs to be the website design site that you can actually understand and use. Being confronted with something that you have no clue about can’t be a good thing for your business.

Both Wix and Weebly are designed with the user in mind, though some prefer one site over another. Wix in particular is well known for its super simple drag and drop function which allows you to shuffle around a page in moments. The whole concept is What You See Is What You Get (WYSIWYG).

Weebly also features easy to follow processes to adapt and tweak your business website, although the user interface is not as up to date or as flexible as Wix.

So in regards to being user friendly, Wix has more features to truly get your new website looking as you want it, but Weebly has some good points too.

Fleshing out your website

Once you have the basics covered, it’s time to look at what kind of experience you want your visitors to have while they are perusing your site. Adding apps and other functions can add extra levels to your site, making it go that much further than rival companies.

When comparing Wix vs Weebly, it’s easy to see straight away that the decision could go either way. Wix has a massive catalogue of over 500 templates and 200 apps, meaning there is plenty of options to get your website just right. However, to a user, especially an inexperienced computer user, that amount of content can be completely overwhelming and then have an adverse effect.

Weebly has much less choice for both templates and apps, which does mean a little less adaptability, but less confusion throughout the design process. Meaning that Weebly would be much better aimed at users who just want to get set up and go.

SEO

There’s not much competition here. Weebly is filled with ad restrictions and other complications meaning ranking with SEO is difficult.

Wix on the other hand has a step by step process to actively encourage SEO throughout the pages of your site. Happy days.
