WordPress vs Webflow | CXL

While WordPress may be the most well known CMS in the world, Webflow continues to establish itself as a powerful alternative for established and upcoming brands. In this article we’ll take a thorough look at both WordPress and Webflow to help choose the right option for you. 

As is tradition with our other tool comparisons, this is not a dry feature-by-feature comparison of WordPress and Webflow. Both have their benefits and disadvantages depending on your needs and the type of business you run. That said, depending on your resources and team, both make a strong case for becoming your CMS that powers your business. 

WordPress vs Webflow 4 factors to consider

1. Cost 

From a purely cost perspective, WordPress is less expensive than Webflow. With WordPress all you need is a domain and hosting which you can snag for less than $100 a year. Webflow on the other hand, has a variety of pricing options based on your needs, but in general is more expensive, particularly if you’re looking to build out multiple sites.

That said, with WordPress you typically will also need to invest in a premium WordPress theme and invest in various plugins to help make your business run smoothly. The benefit of WebFlow is all your hosting is done by Webflow; there’s no need to search for hosting elsewhere. 

Additionally, because Webflow can be customized without the use of code, you won’t necessarily need to account for a large dev team budget to make the changes you need as is the case with WordPress in many instances. 

2. Plugins

From a sheer numbers standpoint, WordPress also beats out Webflow as it has thousands of plugins and integrations that have been time-tested over the years. Given that they have been around for two decades, they have been able to build relationships with many of the leading plugin and application builders. 

Most developers and applications start building with WordPress in mind. That said, while a younger company compared to WordPress, Webflow has worked hard to partner with applications to ensure your favorite integrations work with them as well. Using tools like Zapier, you can also hack together a variety of integrations that are yet publicly available. 

As founder Haradhan shares:

“[WordPress is free and open-source software, and also every WordPress developer already make some functional themes and plugin which things make our some works effortless.”

For SEO folks who rely heavily on the likes of Yoast, unfortunately Webflow currently does not have an integration with them. That said, Webflow has stated publicly that their sites are out-of-the-box SEO optimized. 

Despite having more plugins available for WordPress, the downside of overreliance on various plugins is that you can open yourself up to security vulnerability and unnecessarily slow down your site. 

As entrepreneur Nat Eliason shared:

“WordPress sites are slow unless you make a very deliberate effort to clean them up. All of the plugins, different tools, messy theme files, they add up, and the code behind a WordPress site…

My Friend Died Last Tuesday

My Friend Died Last Tuesday

Cy’s wife called Tuesday morning to tell me he passed away between 4 and 5 a.m. My wife and I were enjoying breakfast on the deck. We saw him the week before.

The 11-hour trip to visit Cy didn’t feel good when we were driving, but I’m glad we did it.

Some things feel good after you do them.

Road and tree The hard things in life feel good after you do them.

Good feelings:

Some things feel good before you do them, anticipating vacation for example.

Some things feel good while you do them, eating ice cream for example.

Some things feel good after you do them, visiting a dying friend for example.

You can feel sad and happy at the same time.

Emotion and hard things:

The hard things in life feel good after you do them.

Bringing up an issue you’ve been putting off doesn’t feel good. But usually it feels good to have the conversation behind you, even if it didn’t go like you hoped.

Sometimes we deal with tough issues because not dealing with them is more painful than dealing with them.

Some things feel good because they’re over.

Asking for forgiveness never feels good until it’s over.

Terminating an employee doesn’t feel good, even if it’s in the best interest of the person.

Preparing for a meeting or presentation doesn’t feel good.

The time it takes to have the oil changed in my truck never feels good. But my truck seems to runs better when I stop procrastinating.

Decisions:

Good feelings are fickle when it comes to the hard things in life.  

The uncomfortable feelings you can’t step into stand between meaning and futility.

Warning: Delay often multiplies disappointment and magnifies pain.

What are some things that usually don’t feel good until they’re over?

How are you navigating fickle emotion?
