NationBuilder

If you are managing a nonprofit agency, advocacy group, or political campaign, NationBuilder is likely the best tool available for the job. It has everything you need in one package, excellent support from NationBuilder reps, and plenty of reputable case studies that show its effectiveness. There is also a robust network of capable partners that build custom solutions and provide consulting.

If you are looking to create a straight forward website for your (or a clients') business, this is a great platform to use. It is easy to set up once you understand how the platform works and is much easier for the average person to understand rather than using WordPress. However, if your website includes a little more to it (have an order history look up page for example), you may want to look into another platform such as WordPress. Wix doesn't have all the flexibility that a more in-depth platform does, but not everyone needs that.

Pros

NationBuilder

  • Great platform for managing website, social media, and donations in a single dashboard.
  • Some particularly helpful features includes turf maps for walking door to door.
  • I really appreciate the included voter files.

  • 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

NationBuilder

  • NationBuilder lacks the ability to create a message board.
  • NationBuilder needs to add threaded comments so you can respond to people who comment on your page.
  • NationBuilder needs to make it easier to offer tiered memberships.

  • Wix's design features can be a curse as much as a blessing. It's tempting to use animation and overdo it on big images but they'll kill page load time and at a certain point become detrimental to usability.
  • Wix code is not for the faint of heart. You have to be willing to dive into the world of Javascript and relational databases. Not as "out-of-the-box" as their marketing would like you to believe. Still, powerful though.
  • On certain things, such as buttons for example, they need to make them more style-based. Each button on the site is essentially custom designed by you. So if you decide you want the button style different, you have to manually redesign it for every instance on the site. No universal CSS change for that.

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.

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.

Alternatives Considered

NationBuilder

It is difficult to compare WordPress and NationBuilder because they are completely different. NationBuilder is a closed system that is specifically made to accomplish certain things. WordPress is largely an open source product with thousands of plugins, extensions, and expandability. However, because of its increased versatility, some clients gravitate toward WordPress over NationBuilder.

Wix is more simple to use than the other products, which is important when sharing administrative access to users or managers of a business because they need to be able to make changes without having a steep learning curve. However, Wix doesn't come with a lot of functions that the other products provide.

Return on Investment

NationBuilder

  • NationBuilder is very affordable, making it easy to provide a return.
  • We see a great ROI based on the simple fact that so much data can be accessed and analyzed from a single platform.

  • I’ve had the opportunity to freelance a considerable amount of times thanks to having an accessible and attractive Wix site
  • I’ve relied quite heavily on Wix to communicate my work to potential clients; without it, it would have been considerably harder to push my portfolio
  • Purchasing a Wix domain is very important to remove the unsightly banner ad at the top of your page, which may affect the overall aesthetic of the site and affect the perception of clients, as it has done for me.
