Why Pick DropFunnels Over WordPress?

WordPress is one of the most well-known tools used to create websites... But over time their platform has fallen behind. DropFunnels is built on WordPress, to utilize the advanced SEO features. DropFunnels is the ultimate platform for coaches, experts, and course creators in 2023. With DropFunnels, you can use their website templates to boost your online sales. These templates are easy to update and customize. DropFunnels helps you quickly grow an online business, without any tricky 3rd party plugins.

DropFunnels vs WordPress Overview

You can build SEO-friendly websites on both DropFunnels and WordPress. Both tools are for posting blogs and managing your content. DropFunnels improves upon WordPress by letting you build sales funnels and online courses.

DropFunnels

DropFunnels is an all-in-one tool that allows you to build and host websites. You can create sales funnels and host online courses with DropFunnels, as well. DropFunnels also offers a more powerful starter plan that lets you connect up to 3 domains.

WordPress only gives you 1, even on advanced plans. DropFunnels also offers unlimited pre-built sales funnels and online course hosting. Beginners and power-users can easily build a business website on DropFunnels.

WordPress

WordPress is an older tool with limited features. WordPress sites require installing and maintaining 3rd party plugins. WordPress launched way back in 2003 and is the classic but limited version of a website builder. While it is arguably the most well-known website tool - WordPress can't do much beyond blogging.

Nearly everything in WordPress must be installed with a 3rd party plugin. These plugins often break, need to be updated, or interact with each other in unexpected ways. WordPress does not provide tech support for most 3rd party plugins.

On top of that, you get a 1:1 consulting call with DropFunnels CEO, Jordan Mederich. On that call, he’ll use years of experience to help you craft your offer, your funnel, and your messaging.

As a WordPress user, you will not be able to build courses or sales funnels without 3rd party plugins. Beyond blogging, you will have to build everything yourself.
