Most small businesses do not need to worry about coding their own website, in the beginning stages it is advised to use platforms such as Shopify, Wix and Squarespace. However, which one is best for your business? This comes down to a few factors but most importantly it is the nature of your business which is going to be the deciding factor.


Shopify is best for those looking to run an E-commerce business or in simple terms sell products online. It is by far the best for website analytics, these will prove crucial when trying to understand your customers. It also comes with a completely free-to-use mobile phone application so you can easily view your website’s stats anywhere in the world.

Squarespace is best to use when looking to build a portfolio, use a portfolio to show off your creative side.

Wix is a good all-round website builder that does both of the above well so use it if you feel that you do not fit into a particular category.


Website builders are best when starting a website for your business. Your website is normally the best place to understand your customers, once you have this understanding then go ahead and work with a web developer to build your website.
