Why Wix, Weebly in Squarespace exist alongside WordPress

WordPress is too much for the typical small business owner to manage.

Yesterday I got yet another reminder of why managed website builder services like Wix, Weebly and Squarespace exist.

I updated the plugins on one of my WordPress sites and POOF! The site broke. Completely. You couldn’t access it. I couldn’t even access the WP-Admin to turn off the plugins to troubleshoot it.

With a bit of help from GoDaddy, I was able to FTP to the site and remove the plugins folder to diagnose the issue.

But here’s the thing: talk to the average small business owner about updating plugins or FTP’ing into their site and they’ll lose you.

That’s why site builders exist. Anyone can create a site using them. They don’t have to worry about updating plugins and breaking their site. Security is handled behind the scenes.
