Why People Are Switching from WordPress to Sellr

Do you want to start your own eCommerce website? If so, that's good! It's always nice to show initiative and ambition. But I guess you want to be sure that you find the best thing for you and your business idea. There are lots of tools out there on the internet which you can use to create your own website and you're going to want to ensure that you choose the best one. Why should you use Sellr, for example, when you know that WordPress can also be used to make an eCommerce website? Well, I hope to answer that question with this blog post and hopefully then you will see why it is that people switch from WordPress to Sellr.

 

In terms of pricing: both of them are great! WordPress can be used for free and Sellr can be used for free. This is perfect if you want to experiment because you can wait and see how well your idea is going without ever having to spend any money. Both also allow you to pay for more advanced features if and when you so choose. Other services expect you to pay up front, but at Sellr we understand that when you're trying out a new business venture, you want to be spending as little as possible! How can we expect you to pay for a website if you don't even know that website will be profitable? You can use Sellr for free and run an eCommerce website without ever having to spend money on it! The same is true of WordPress and so both give you ample room to test the waters.

 

The thing about WordPress, however, is that it is not optimised to make eCommerce websites. Generally speaking, if you want to use WordPress to sell things, you're going to have to reach out to an external source to get the resources you need to turn your WordPress website into an eCommerce site. WordPress was mainly designed with blogging and articles in mind and they are very useful when it comes to content marketing, but since Sellr also gives you the ability to do that, Sellr clearly has the upper hand! Sellr allows you to create a blog and to write as many posts as you like, tagging them for SEO purposes and adding 'topics' to make them easier to browse; it's easy for you to use and easy for readers to navigate and is the perfect place to post the high quality content which will bring people to your site.

 

So I hope that has persuaded you that Sellr is a better service for your eCommerce plans than WordPress! If it has, sign up right away and make your eCommerce dream a reality!
