Magento Open Source

Magento Open Source is well suited for small or medium-sized businesses who don't have a lot of money or time to start their online store. If our web design client can select a specific pre-made template beforehand, and they do not want a ton of complex or extremely specific functionalities, then we suggest Magento Open Source to the client. If the client is a large retailer wanting very specific features, then OpenCart or complete custom code might be a better choice.

SeoSamba for Wordpress Enterprise

The more pages you have, the better, if you choose SeoSamba. For us, it exceeds our needs as we're not fans of excess numbers of pages just to have a lot of pages. We find that distracting as the people "living" on a website either aren't finding anything compelling or are there to learn something, not to take any real action.The best scenario to use SeoSamba in is when you want to prioritize your creative team's time to create, and not to simply do a lot of maintenance of your site(s).

Pros

Magento Open Source

  • Magento 2 CE has a very robust document workflow which mirrors most mid-large ERP systems. There's a "papertrail" which mimics your business processes, and each part of the process is exposed to the API which makes for some great integration potential.
  • Magento 2 CE is also great for tracking customer history, saves a record for each and allows you to understand customer interests better.
  • Magento 2 CE is highly expandable, with a full marketplace of free and premium modules that should accomplish some pretty niche sales or service goals.

SeoSamba for Wordpress Enterprise

  • Automates multisite SEO, so we can stay focused on great content that attracts the right audience for our two entirely different strategic business units.
  • Eliminates the surprises we used to get with other plugins when Wordpress makes unannounced changes that crash other plugins.
  • Agile, easy to use, and saves hours of time and creative resources
  • Automates metric capture: site analytics, keyword/phrase capture, search engine page results etc...in an online dashboard (and it's free).

Cons

Magento Open Source

  • Not the simplest of solutions to use or maintain from an end-user perspective
  • Other platforms are better with regards to SEO in our experience
  • Fairly sluggish and slow compared to other platforms without the correct server specification and performance optimization work.
David Bryan | TrustRadius Reviewer

SeoSamba for Wordpress Enterprise

  • There's a lot more capacity to this product than we need right now, but it's also free so we'll grow into it. You do have to pay close attention to the metrics and adapt accordingly, which is the reason behind creating an inbound marketing model anyway. Just choose the metrics that matter most to you, and I do encourage you to do a lot more A/B testing than you might have with another plug-in.

It's the dominant force in the SMB open source market. With the continued support of eBay/PayPal, Magento will continue to evolve and should be a market leader for some time.

Alternatives Considered

Magento Open Source

Magento is hands down better than any hosted platform (i.e., BC), but only if you have a good development team. Hosted platforms are very limiting as to what you can accomplish "outside the box." Magento is much better than WooCommerce in its user friendliness and its feature set.
Lynn Thames | TrustRadius Reviewer

SeoSamba for Wordpress Enterprise

Prior to SeoSamba we were making manual changes. Then we started researching several possible other plugins but the reviews all said the same - that if WP made significant enough changes those plugins would become ineffective. SeoSamba's ability to automate optimization and keep up with/stay ahead of those changes was the deciding factor for us.

Return on Investment

Magento Open Source

  • It definitely let us start with a decent store and scale from 0 to 15,000 products without many performance issues. But that comes with a cost: we were unable to change the design of the checkout, SEO was poor, and adding banners or more store-related things was very time consuming.
  • Debugging is hard and you will break your head with some errors that break your store, and you don't know how to solve them. This was one of the reasons why we left it.
Santiago Valdés | TrustRadius Reviewer

SeoSamba for Wordpress Enterprise

  • Extremely positive ROI as it saved us a lot of very expensive creative time and other associated resources.
  • Positive impact was immediate as we were immediately aware of where our sites could be much better optimized and we are able to A/B test very quickly, and take immediate action on those results.
  • Remember, the #1 objective to metrics is to understand the behaviors they represent. Simply capturing reporting isn't good enough. Test, measure, analyze....rinse and repeat.
