Likelihood to Recommend

Blogger

Blogger is great for small businesses who are active on social media and don't want to have to pay for the best product. However, Blogger might not be best suited for all businesses, especially if you are wanting to sell products on your site or are looking for something more in-depth. Overall, I'd happily recommend Blogger to just about everyone, but especially to small businesses or even bloggers who want to try their hand in that industry.

I would recommend Wix 100%, due to the fact that the marketing strategy that it gives to the customer makes you want to register for such a great site. It also has a great user experience, without putting difficulties on the site creation process. Wix really knows what the user wants.

Pros

Blogger

  • Cost - Because Blogger is free we are able to utilize it to its fullest capacity all while paying nothing!
  • User friendly - As I previously stated, we are able to post and reach vast amounts of people in a short amount of time because the interface is so easy and user friendly!
  • This goes along with user-friendly, but it is amazing how you do not need any coding experience to have a professional looking page.

Wix

  • The most important strength of Wix is its simplicity and intuitive interface. Wix is, by far, the best web CMS that I've ever used because it's easier to navigate and understand than other CMS platforms. Once you start building your site, there are pop-ups explaining what to do next until your entire site is filled with content. Because it's so easy to get started, I've completed websites on the same day that I started them, which makes marketing managers and directors extremely surprised and excited.
  • Wix's design and theme options are the best I've seen. When using other CMS platforms, I've had a difficult time finding themes that fit the way that I want to organize the content on my website. I felt restricted because the themes were not editable. Wix, however, allows users to edit themes as much as they want. The platform will also take the information that you've already plugged into the site and find a theme that works, choose the best fonts, and even implement color schemes. Wix really gives you control over the way your site is organized but also provides a "hands-off" route for people who don't want to be too heavily involved in the design process. There are options for any and all levels of experience and involvement.
  • Wix has an option to add a contributor to a website, which I also have not seen on any other CMS platforms. In most cases, CMS users would need to create several logins to get their colleagues or partners to edit the site. But with Wix, I can have my own account with both personal and professional sites - and invite colleagues to edit a specific website without seeing anything else. It's similar to having a Google Drive of websites. I can see all of my Wix websites, but colleagues can only see or edit the websites that I invite them to.

Cons

Blogger

  • When comments are as the author of the post when you post a comment back it should be more threaded and either a symbol or icon should designate the poster. It is hard to determine who the poster is compared to who left a post.
  • As a company that uses the blog for our agents, it would be nice if they would allow custom ads to be run.
  • It would be nice if they would add a chat feauture within the blog so that if a poster would like to chat with us they would be able to.

Wix

  • Some of the features do not work consistently or they are not able to be seen at all times.
  • There are frequent bugs.
  • SEO optimization can be improved.
  • They removed some features that I cannot get back.
  • Form builder applications and plug ins can be slow to set up and slow to load.
  • Cannot customize certain features.
  • Handling the footer section can provide issues.
  • Event application / plug in has basic features but mostly not useful.
  • Paid plug ins don't work well or fast enough.
  • Paypal buttons take a long time to load.
  • Repeater boxes don't work well.
  • It doesn't allow you to copy and paste a section from one website design to another website design, which is an important function for saving time when managing multiple business websites.

I love the additional income and how great my blogs have turned out. It's given me ideas for others to build their blogs and has attained new clients for me. I make money using AdSense, how little or how much I want to make is up to me promoting my Blog.

We will definitely renew Wix. The ability to completely control our website has been invaluable to us. We will maintain this service as long as we are an incorporated organization, we've tried several other software options and this has been the best solution by far for all of our needs.

Blogger has a simple layout with descriptive instructions when you first sign up. It can be intimidating at first but is easy to learn through simple navigation and a little trial and error

Great customization, but a pain to backtrack. They recently added the ability to set fonts etc as headings, title, body etc, but if you did not begin your build with these presets you are screwed if you ever try to change font/ colors/layout etc.

Not complex at all. It teaches you how to use their platform in a dynamic way. Each tutorial offers an explanation that can be reviewed later on. The connection speed of a web page has been smooth so far, with no major problems regarding this subject. Overall, Wix can manage 10+ pages with great connection speed.

I can say that I have not had to use customer service and support for Blogger in over 2 years. It is truly easy to use a product that does not leave you with a lot of questions. The last customer service experience I had with them was very pleasant.

Have a plan written out for yourself, you can always make changes as you go. It's more difficult to build a Blog if one doesn't even know what the Blog is going to be about. It's best to plan what your Blog is going to be about and what your audience is going to be and what you want to accomplish before you start building.

Alternatives Considered

Blogger

Blogger doesn't compare to WordPress. In my opinion, and as I've stated in previous answers, it is limited with integration, functionality, and other capabilities. It's no longer a standout in the marketplace. It was a great tool for beginners in the sphere 10 years ago, but we've evolved so much since then and Blogger hasn't. Google, its parent corporation, can do much better.

Wix

Wix just has a better repertoire of templates, default design formats for displaying images and video, and a wider control over what I can tweak to make the site truly my own. I love Wix’s simple to grasp user interface and speed with which it works to upload my images. It also contains just more options in templates and plug-ins in my opinion.

I give this rating to Wix because it's a great content creator. It has a great platform and also offers great customer service. If you encounter any technical issues, with Wix you will find a solution. For premium members or domain holders, this is the same as for Trial members or non-domain holders.

Return on Investment

Blogger

  • Before using Blogger, we were sending out information to agents via email and they would either delete them or just not find them. Now since we keep all the information in one place, it has cut down repetitive questions and has given our agents a voice as to what is working for them and what is not.
  • We don't have any hard numbers, but we have heard back from our agents that the blog posts help them and not have to rely on contacting support stuff as often to find answers to simple questions.
  • The only negative impact felt so far is with a few select agents leaving negative feedback to blog due to personal issues they have with policies within the company.
Robb Glietz | TrustRadius Reviewer

Wix

  • For clients, it has had a positive ROI. The site I built for them using Wix was able to function as their hub for events and for marketing their events.
  • For myself, it has had a small negative impact. I've let my premium account expire due to not needing it anymore. For generating leads for my freelance business I've found that LinkedIn is by far the better choice.
  • Overall, I have been able to add my experience using Wix to my personal portfolio and resume. I can advise clients on its pros and cons as well as jump in and help them with the Wix interface if they ask me to do so.
