Since a website is the online home for your business, would you rather rent your space from a site builder or purchase your own custom home?
Look at your website like a house. I mean, it is the online address for your business.
Renting from Wix, Weebly, or Squarespace
If you build your website with Wix, Weebly, or Squarespace, your home is pre-fabricated.
You are renting in a community with monthly HOA fees.
This biggest drawback, obviously, is that you don’t own a rented website.
Renting any space comes with lots of rules, especially when it comes to decorating your own space.
And, when it comes time to move, you can’t take anything with you.
Owning a Website with WordPress
Your website and your domain name are important business assets you should own.
A self-hosted website – like the ones I build for clients with WordPress – give you a custom built home you own.
Your website is hosted in a location that only charges one annual fee for ownership. There are no monthly HOA fees.
I build your house with a strong foundation, and I make sure all the design elements holding it together are high-end.
When it’s all said and done, you own your website. You can keep it where it is or move it to a new location without having to start all over again.
WordPress is the Better Choice for Business
A site builder like Wix is fine for beginners and personal websites – if you’re OK with renting the space.
Software like WordPress is the better choice for business use because you own your space.
WordPress is powerful and flexible which gives you ultimate control over your website design, security, and SEO.
WordPress is the better choice for any size business, especially if owning your space is important to you.
And it should be!
