When it comes to building a website for your business, choosing the right platform is crucial for achieving your online goals and presence effectively. But with so many website platform options available, how do you choose which one is right for you? At Flight, we primarily build our websites on three major platforms: Wordpress, Webflow, and Shopify. Each platform offers its own unique capabilities that cater to different needs and preferences. Continue reading to see which website platform is best for your business. 


We’ve all heard of it. It's used by over 40% of all websites on the internet (the WHOLE internet!), and for good reason. Wordpress is a highly versatile, customizable, flexible, and scalable CMS (content management system), which makes it perfect for businesses of any size or industry. Most of our websites at Flight are built using Wordpress because we love its vast range of features, themes, plugins, and integrations that allow us to create the perfect combination of design and functionality for you. As a bonus, Wordpress is known for its user-friendly interface, so you can rest easy knowing that you’ll be able to learn how to manage and update your own sites post-project.


While Webflow has been around since 2013, it’s been widely unknown up until recent years. One of Webflow’s biggest advantages is that we can create beautiful, responsive websites visually and in real-time using their design interface, which is built to ensure that your website looks and functions seamlessly across all devices and screen sizes. Webflow’s interface also allows for extensive customizations, interactions, and animations so that we can design a website that is truly unique to your business and brand. We also love and recommend Webflow for their built-in hosting, security, SEO, and optimization features, as well as their expansive learning resources. 


Shopify is designed specifically for e-commerce, and it boasts an impressive list of included features all under one roof, which is why we highly recommend it if you need to focus on online sales. Similar to Wordpress, Shopify offers a wide variety of professionally designed themes to choose from, as well as plugins to extend the functionality of your site. Similar to Webflow, your hosting, mobile responsiveness, SEO, security, and optimization features are already included. We love it because we can customize and design our clients’ sites to their brand and needs, and our clients love it because they can manage their payments, inventory, online sales, and much more with ease from their Shopify Dashboard. This is thanks to their incredibly user-friendly interface. 

The choice between which platform is best for your business ultimately depends on your business’s specific goals and needs. At Flight, we have the knowledge, experience, and expertise in each of these platforms (and many more!), and we love creating beautiful and functional websites for our clients.
