Making the Switch from WordPress to a Wix Website in 2023
Updated: Nov 15
Many individuals, entrepreneurs, and businesses stumble upon #Wix while working on their WordPress websites. However, they feel intimidated in making the switch, and we can't blame them. It's a new challenge, a new platform, and requires a new commitment. If you believe #Wix is still the DIY rookie platform, you definitely need to check out all of Wix's new features and capabilities. Wix has become such a website platform giant that even schools around the country are starting to teach it.
As an agency, we often get the question, why should we switch? Here is our typical answer:
You're probably paying someone quite a bit to maintain your WordPress website.
Someone has to look out for:
Firewalls & SSL certificates,
SEO and many other features that come with a website.
Doing it yourself is time-consuming and challenging.
So once you are caught up in the middle of these challenges, naturally, you think of a new solution or are ready to make a switch. Don't misinterpret this to where you need zero support; however, you have a bigger team with Wix support behind you 24/7.
So why go with a "DIY" platform?
When Wix first launched to the public, it was very basic and geared towards DIY individuals. That was back in 2007-2010. Wix has since then changed the website building game, accommodating the DIY crowd, along with the Agencies and advanced users.
Why do we recommend Wix as an Agency?
Easy, #Wix has a global reach of staff, devs, and engineers that help integrate most of these website features for you. Users have flexible plan options and can start websites for free, along with an easier project management process. Wix has partnered with agencies like CIS Agency, to build an all-in-one platform to manage hundreds of accounts and unlock advanced features! Don't forget to check out Wix's Editor X
A few things to think about before making the switch:
WordPress like many other website platforms, does not have an easy switch button, so much of the switching will require manual work. However, Wix makes it easy to set up your new website. You could save a lot of time and money in the long run.
Relearning the platforms is not always easy. The platforms are different and even though Wix is friendlier, sometimes it can have certain limitations, which can benefit you from not "breaking" the website.
