    Hi Ryan, WordPress is far more versatile than other platforms such as SquareSpace, Wix, Magento etc as you have so many great plugins available that can transform a simple blog into eCommerce, membership, directory or pretty much anything else you can think of! There is always a theme or plugin(s) available for all your needs.

    I’m sure if you did some stats (which are great by the way) on how quickly you can setup an eCommerce website with 2 products, I’m pretty sure WordPress would come out on top again.

    Thanks for the stats! We can now direct clients to this link to show them WordPress is far easier to use over Wix!

    Great post. I feel like WordPress 4.7 definitely showed that the WordPress team are focusing on the experience of new users, who can be easily lost early in the process.

    Hi Ryan:

    It’s a pretty good sign for WordPress the platform that users are able to complete some basic tasks easier than they are on Wix or Squarespace. We generally assume that, since it is the platform we’ve chosen to work with (and so it’s and extension of our self-identity). But is great to have proof.

    I think the most valuable part of this study are the videos. There are interesting things that we can learn from watching these. It’s easy to forget we’re the WordPress 1%, and it’s a good reminder that our customers and clients are not.

    Thanks for putting forth the time, effort, and expense to put together this comprehensive study.
