Tool Review: Wix and Squarespace
With very easy to use templates and all-in-one platforms, Wix and Squarespace have revolutionized the site creation process. Bloggers, professionals, creatives, artists, designers and small business owners can create stunning looking sites, blogs and landing pages using one of the templates available in just a few easy steps. Both platforms also take care of web hosting.
How does it work?
- Both Wix and Squarespace offer different website templates you can choose from depending on your need: blog, landing page, professional site, e-commerce, protography, video, etc.
- The website builder allows you to customize navigation, menus, page, format
- Different style kits can serve as inspiration and as a tool to customize font, color, logo
- You can always preview your site before you publish – and yes, you can keep making changes once the site has been published
- If you are working with other collaborators such as writers and photographers, you can grant them access to your site
- Different tools allow for customer management and marketing, such as creating a customer list and sending newsletters
How can I grow my business?
In terms of search engine optimization (how your site is found on Google and other search engines), both platforms have done a lot of work to enhance these features, though to be fair would still get better SEO on a custom site using a separate web hosting service. But for the great majority of professionals, and unless you have hundreds of thousands of users on your site, Squarespace and Wix offer an easy and awesome looking solution.
Wix or Squarespace?
The choice between Wix and Squarespace is very personal, some people prefer the interface of Wix, while some people prefer the aesthetics of the Squarespace templates. Creating a professional looking blog or site should no longer be a pain point in your journey.
