  • [Sanity] is a great CMS when the contents to be hosted are large running huge pages (10K or higher)
  • Ability to integrate with any plugin
  • Needs good programming knowledge

WordPress

WordPress is ideal for website management, especially if the person overseeing the website has minimal experience with WordPress. This is because the program is fairly easy to learn. You can quickly learn how to add posts and new pages, or simply duplicate existing content to serve as a starting point for new content. It's easy to preview content before it goes live and you can even schedule content to go live on a certain day/time.

  • APIs responses are fast
  • Ability to query using "Vision" to understand the content parameters
Simisara Johnson | TrustRadius Reviewer

WordPress

  • WordPress is incredibly easy to set up and get running with little to no technical knowledge. Most web hosts will do it for you, since it's so easy.
  • With thousands of themes available for free and for low cost, WordPress can accommodate any design you can imagine.
  • The community behind WordPress is generous, and there are loads of educational opportunities both online and in person to learn and connect with other users.
Lisa Keyser | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

Sanity

  • Certain queries like count() and references take time to load which can potentially lead to lagging of the website
Simisara Johnson | TrustRadius Reviewer

WordPress

  • WordPress breaks often so you need to have someone who understands how to troubleshoot, which can take time and money.
  • Some plugins are easier to customize than others, for example, some don't require any coding knowledge while others do. This can limit your project if you are not a coder.
  • WordPress can be easily hacked, so you also need someone who can ensure your sites are secure.

My rating is based on the knowledge I have of the community that WordPress has had built around it for years now. It's as solid as it comes when you talk about community involvement and expansion. There's no other CMS out there that can match-up with it, hands down.

I give it an 8 rating because it's a great piece of open-source software that can be customized easily. There is an ease of use and the customizations are a treat. There are a lot of themes to choose from (though paid themes are the best as they provide more support).

Anyone can visit WordPress.org and download a fully functional copy of WordPress free of charge. Additionally, WordPress is offered to users as open-source software, which means that anyone can customize the code to create new applications and make these available to other WordPress users.

Mostly, any performance issues have to do with using too many plugins and these can sometimes slow down the overall performance of your site. It is very tempting to start adding lots of plugins to your WordPress site, however, as there are thousands of great plugins to choose from and so many of them help you do amazing things on your site.If you begin to notice performance issues with your WordPress site (e.g. pages being slow to load), there are ways to optimize the performance of your site, but this requires learning the process. WordPress users can learn how to optimize their WordPress sites by downloading the WPTrainMe WordPress training plugin (WPTrainMe.com) and going through the detailed step-by-step WordPress optimization tutorials.

WordPress itself only has community service so your experience will depend on where you turn. Online, through forums and community boards, support is rudimentary but effective. You can easily turn to your local community and find exceptional individuals who know and use WordPress regularly for more advanced, inexpensive, support. I'm rating this less than 10 because of the lack of any formal support provided by a company.

Varies by the person providing training. High marks as it's incredibly easy to find experienced individuals in your community to provide training on any aspect of WordPress from content marketing, SEO, plugin development, theme design, etc. Less than 10 though as the training is community based and expectations for a session you find may fall short.

WordPress is not a great solution if you have:1) A larger site with performance / availability requirements.2) Multiple types of content you want to share - each with its own underlying data structure.3) Multiple sites you need to manage.For very small sites where these needs are not paramount, WordPress is a decent solution

Alternatives Considered

Sanity

Legacy CMS has a rigid frontend that is not easily customizable. Sanity however is not a rigid CMS but headless CMS that can be integrated with any modern frontend framework like React, Vue, etc
Simisara Johnson | TrustRadius Reviewer

WordPress

We have considered and operated within Shopify and Squarespace. Both serve their purpose for niche clients, but we do recommend WordPress as being the superior option. We find that WordPress is easier to use and offers maximum scalability while the others are more challenging to design, code, configure and launch.

WordPress is completely scalable. You can get started immediately with a very simple "out-of-the box" WordPress installation and then add whatever functionality you need as and when you need it, and continue expanding. Often we will create various WordPress sites on the same domain to handle different aspects of our strategy (e.g. one site for the sales pages, product information and/or a marketing blog, another for delivering products securely through a private membership site, and another for running an affiliate program or other application), and then ties all of these sites together using a common theme and links on each of the site's menus.Additionally, WordPress offers a multisite function that allows organizations and institutions to manage networks of sites managed by separate individual site owners, but centrally administered by the parent organization. You can also expand WordPress into a social networking or community site, forums, etc.The same scalability applies to web design. You can start with a simple design and then scale things up to display sites with amazing visual features, including animations and video effects, sliding images and animated product image galleries, elements that appear and fade from visitor browsers, etc.The scaling possibilities of WordPress are truly endless.

Return on Investment

Sanity

  • Saving of editorial time in publishing contents as compared to legacy website
Simisara Johnson | TrustRadius Reviewer

WordPress

  • We don't have a web dev on our team currently, but we've referred many clients to a WP developer we partner with and have earned commissions off of those referrals
  • Faster sites have campaigns that perform better, leading to higher lifetime customer value
  • We use affiliate marketing tools on our site as well
