3 Reasons You Don't Want a Wordpress Website

Updated: Feb 21

In this article I'm going to give you the top 3 reasons why you don't want to use the outdated and lackluster Wordpress platform.


This is a BLOG platform that somehow wound up an overused generic website platform and CMS.


If you already have a website, chances are its on Wordpress.


Read this, do your own research and if you take my advice, you'd leave.



Wordpress Needs Constant Maintenance


Wordpress websites use third party plugins to do pretty much anything.


These plugins are designed by non-official developers and must be updated regularly to keep them working properly.


As such, a Wordpress website will almost always incur hefty maintenance fees.


In comparison, Wix websites come with everything out of the box and keeps itself updated, saving you money in monthly fees.



Wordpress Gets Hacked Daily


I'll let two experts weigh in here.


“I have never heard of one single case as yet where a WIX site has been hacked, unlike WordPress sites which get hacked on a daily basis.” says Mark Preston, SEO Expert. ​ "Vulnerable plugins include file manager, page builder, gdpr cookie consent, duplicator, site kit by google, infinitewp client, the list goes on.


If you’re operating your business on Wordpress and especially if you’re using any of those plugins, seek help immediately.


They are known to be compromised." says David Balaban, Computer Security Researcher



Wordpress Is Low Performance


We now know a website can show up in Google better and get more leads, if on WIX rather than Wordpress.


This was demonstrated in Mark Preston's real life case study where he compared the two.


Here's his top comments. “My phone started to ring and my call-back-requests pinged into my inbox [on Wix] a lot more than they ever did whilst it was on WordPress.” “I know for sure that since moving my site over from WordPress to WIX, I have received a lot more leads through my website and it gives me the flexibility to do exactly what I need to without high development costs.


It’s a lot more secure as well, giving me peace of mind.”

And here's the clincher.

“I will never move my own website back to Wordpress.”

DAMN!


Heard it here first folks.

Check out the full case study here.


It's a real world example of how Wordpress doesn't cut the mustard when it comes to just about everything.


If you are a tradie who wants to shake things up, you will want a higher standard of performance from your website.


To the movers and shakers,

Alan Frye
