WIX to WordPress – Affordable Web Design Sydney
Parlour Dala is skin clinic based in Mosman on Sydney’s Lower North Shore. When starting the business, the owner developed a WIX website herself. Since then, her business had grown significantly and the business required a website that was optimised for search engine ranking to improve its Google ranking—the solution was a WIX to WordPress conversion.
WIX vs WordPress
Whilst WIX is a great tool for budget-conscious start-up businesses wanting to create their own websites, in its simplicity, it can be difficult for people without search engine optimisation expertise to ensure their WIX website ranks well on Google. Additionally, as their business grows and evolves, the capability of WIX becomes limited. This is where an upgrade from WIX to WordPress is often necessary.
As of 2013, WordPress powers approximately 810 million, or 43%, of all websites globally (source colorlib). This compares to approximately 2.5% of websites globally using WIX (source w2techs).
WordPress is perfect for creating sensational-looking, mobile-friendly websites on a budget. WordPress can be used to create everything from simple websites and blogs to complex e-commerce shopping carts and enterprise websites.
WordPresses easy-to-use content management system (CMS) means the business owner can update and maintain her new website in-house. Of course, if she’s unable to do this, I am always available to assist with any website maintenance requirements they aren’t able to manage in-house.
Importantly, WordPress is very search engine friendly and, when optimised correctly by an SEO expert, should achieve a top Google ranking.
Features and benefits of WordPress
WordPress websites are easy to maintain
WordPress is designed to be user-friendly. It features a simple interface that makes it easy for business owners to manage their website content in-house. For clients who are not happy to ‘learn as they go’, I offer comprehensive WordPress training.
The capability of WordPress is endless
WordPress can be used to build a wide range of websites, from simple blogs to complex e-commerce sites. Its flexibility is due to its open-source nature which means website developers can customise their client’s websites to meet their specific needs.
WordPress offers exceptional design flexibility
The design and layout capabilities of WordPress are virtually endless. Whatever the client’s design style, I can create a website specific to their needs.
Plugins extend the capabilities of a WordPress website
WordPress offers a vast range of plugins that can be used to add functionality to a website. These plugins can be used to add features such as booking forms, calendars, embedding social media feeds, e-commerce functionality… the list is virtually endless.
Search engine friendly for a top Google ranking
WordPress is designed to be search engine friendly with many SEO features built in plus the capability to expand upon this. When developed by a website designer who also has SEO expertise (like me), a WordPress website should rank very well on Google and continue to retain a top ranking.
WordPress websites are very secure
The security patches and features of WordPress are continually being updated making it a secure platform for building websites. Additionally, security plugins can be added to further enhance the security of any WordPress website.
Extensive global WordPress ssupport
Due to its enormous usage and penetration globally, there is a large community of WordPress developers and users who are constantly creating new plugins and resources that can be used to build better websites. This community also provides support and assistance to users who need help with their WordPress websites.
