WordPress was designed to be an easy-to-use tool for people who have their own business. While there is some coding involved if you want a perfectly customized site, even small business owners with very little tech-related experience can use WordPress.

In addition to WordPress being easy and designed for people just. like. you, it will offer you a chance to have a website that looks professional and runs efficiently.
Speed of Your Site
How long does it take you to load your Wixsite or your Squarespace site?
Seriously, check it. It takes a while. And you know what? That’s a problem. Your customers want your page to load quick and they don’t want any of the fussy bugs that come with other companies. Google knows this, too. They’ll give you a lower ranking if your site doesn’t load fast on mobile or on your desktop.
The easiest way to have a website that loads lightning fast is have a designer or developer create it for you. Even if you choose to use your own WordPress ideas and just use a theme, your site is still going to run faster than it would with a design tool like Squarespace or Wix.
When you use a design tool, you’re on your own. Even though there are some instances where the tool can walk you through what you’re supposed to be doing, it’s hard to tell where there’s a mistake if something doesn’t look right on your site.
With WordPress, you can be sure everything is going to run smoothly. Even if it doesn’t run right, you can always go into the code and check it out.
If you use a designer, you can bet they’ll be willing to look at the code and make any changes you need so your site will run as efficiently as possible.
Learn WordPress or hire a designer. It will be worth it.
