ClickFunnels costs at least $99 per month. Although the price might not be an issue for you, you get just as much value with a WordPress setup that would cost something like... $200 per YEAR?Hey guys I'm looking for advice on what platform to use in order to build my website.
My business is a service based business. Specifically, it's a painting /carpet cleaning business
However, I have also been thinking about clickfunnels . But at the same time, I think clickfunnels is geared towards a product based business where customers can buy online rather than a service based business where customers would want you to go to their homes and give them an estimate.
What would you guys advise?
However, it also depends on your marketing approach. Just want a good looking website, nice copy and a contact form? ClickFunnels is a waste of money. If you're looking for an easy way to incorporate tripwires, one-click upsells, downsells, quizzes or whatever, ClickFunnels could save you some time and headaches, but I suspect that's not what you're looking for.
What exactly do you want in your website?
I'd personally go with WordPress. It's the most popular content management system on the planet, which means there is a LOT of help, experts and documentation to be found in case you run into any trouble.
If you get Elementor, which is an easy-to-use page builder for WordPress, it can be quite a seamless experience when you want to design the site and add content. For what you're probably looking for in terms of functionality, the free version of that plugin would be more than enough.
Feel free to ask in case you've got any questions about that.
Although it might be tempting to shop around for the "ultimate" solution, IMO the average user would better spend their time on WordPress instead of the more obscure alternatives. If your website runs on WP and you experience an issue, chances are you'll find a simple-to-understand solution for just that specific problem on Google, Youtube or in Facebook groups.From my experience, WordPress is mainly for blogs. But it can be customized with plugins. Years ago when I ran a blog I read and lot about content management systems . Several of them are open source. One such program that comes to mind is Drupal that you install on yourself server. Another one that's gotten good reviews is Expression Engine. But I think you need to pay for the full version.
Other systems? I bet you'll need to look around longer for the answer.
