Wordpress vs Wix -- Which is Better?

by 10 comments
I came across Wix.com recently, and was wondering if anyone is actually using this platform. Also, how does it measure up in comparison with Wordpress?

I know its not open source, which is limiting, but it seems really SEO/user-friendly and aesthetically pleasing. Thinking of testing it out.

Any feedback on this?

Thanks

    User-friendly and aesthetically pleasing? Perhaps.

    SEO friendly? Perhaps not as much, given these are flash websites. In this case, Wordpress wins hands down.

    Best,

    I would definitely go with Wordpress. I know some people using WIX for Facebook pages... but if you are in SEO- Wordpress is my choice

      Thanks.

      I've always used Wordpress myself, and am currently using it now -- just wondering if anyone has some actual experience building wix sites.

    I haven't used Wix, but I have used Weebly. Very easy to use and a nice system. But the problem with all of these systems is you don't have control.

    If the service goes down or raises prices, you are out of luck.

    With WordPress, the software is free and you can host it yourself to retain total control. And there are thousands of plugins with more being developed all the time to extend the functionality.

    So I recommend sticking with WordPress and hosting it yourself.

    Hey everyone I always loved dogs and when there was that cpa offer pet photo contest i made good $$$ by making fb pages and promoting that stuff to people...i recently grew my instagram account to 22k followers in dog niche...and it is growing fast. But i didn't make a single cent from it! I don't know how to monetize that traffic from instagram, and whenever i post some website or somethign for they to click etc...from 100 people maybe 2 people clicks on it so that is incredible low conversion.

    I have an idea for a niche store where I'd be selling products from AliExpress. I was originally thinking of drop shipping products straight from the site but after doing some research it sounds like dealing with shipping times, returns, counterfeits, etc is a serious hassle. I noticed their affiliate program pays pretty decent commissions, but all the prices are so cheap you still wouldn't be making much per conversion. Plus I don't know how trustworthy they are about paying out. Does anyone have any experience in this arena they could share?

    So I figured I could definitely make some short term return on my investment if I buy some donald trump or hillary clinton t-shirts (that I make and have printed), and sell them. How can I do this legally? I'm pretty sure I can't sell them online, but am I able to sell them at an amish market, or on the street, or at stadiums? Would love some ideas. I'm in Maryland, are there any state laws that would prevent me from doing this?
