What DANDELION & BURDOCK can teach you about choosing a website BUILDER.
Fish n Chips is a peculiarly British food. Whether you eat it on a windy sea-front in the drizzling rain whilst the seagulls glare at you, or you take it home and pop it on pre-warmed plates like a civilised human being, most people agree that there is nothing quite like it.
The legendary choice
Now this isn’t about to turn into a post about the merits of whatever moist topping you prefer (there’s a gravy vs curry sauce, North/South divide obvs). This is about choosing the perfect drink…. and how that helps you to choose a website builder.
You’ve got your crispy, golden-brown fish fillet, perfectly salted chips (a splash of vinegar), and a cold can of Ben Shaws Dandelion and Burdock to wash it all down. Why this quirky, underappreciated drink, you ask? Well, its unique flavour profile, a blend of herbal goodness and a hint of sweetness, complements the savoury, hearty goodness of fish and chips like no other. It’s the unexpected twist that takes your meal from good to legendary. I know there are those that love a glass of fizz with their fish n chips, and then there’s the old skool cuppa tea brigade, but in our house, D&B reigns supreme.
And just like pairing the right drink with your fish and chips, choosing a website builder is a decision that requires careful consideration and a little bit of controversy. Much like selecting a drink for your fish n chips, choosing the right website builder requires a bit of thought. There’s Wix, the flashy extrovert loved by people who just want a website pronto and don’t want to bother about code and all that craziness. There’s also Squarespace and Showit, the sleek and stylish options for the fashionistas who want drag and drop simplicity and gorgeous looking templates.
Then there’s WordPress, the reliable and versatile choice which makes normal people shudder almost as much as choosing tea to go with your fish n chips. . Each builder has its unique flavor – it’s all about finding the one that resonates with your taste, or in this case, your business needs.
HARMONY IN COMPLEXITY
Fish and chips are a harmonious blend of textures and flavours – crispy, salty, and oh-so-satisfying. Dandelion and burdock, with its complex yet balanced taste, mirrors this harmony. When evaluating website builders, consider the balance between simplicity and functionality. You want a platform that offers the features you need without overwhelming you with unnecessary complexity. It’s all about finding that sweet spot.
Dandelion and burdock evokes a sense of nostalgia, harking back to simpler times. Your website builder should do the same – it should withstand the test of time. Opt for a platform that not only meets your current needs but also has the flexibility to grow with your business. After all, just like a classic drink, a timeless website builder is always in style.
Just as the timeless allure of dandelion and burdock perfectly complements the classic fish and chips experience, I wholeheartedly recommend WordPress as the ideal counterpart for your website needs. WordPress, much like the beloved beverage, boasts a rich and versatile flavour – it’s reliable, flexible, and offers a harmonious blend of simplicity and complexity – it’s also great for SEO.
Yeah it’s also a pretty divisive choice – and it can scare the pants off you if you have yet to dabble your toes into the WordPress world and all you’ve used in the past is a drag and drop builder. But trust me, WordPress teamed with a builder such as Kadence can give you a sublime building experience as slick as they come.
Its interface ensures that even those new to the web building game can navigate its features, while its extensive plugin ecosystem caters to the diverse needs of businesses, big or small – whether you’re looking for a online learning platform, an online shop to sell your wares, or a platform to showcase your culinary skills. Choosing WordPress is akin to selecting dandelion and burdock – it’s a tried-and-true classic with a timeless quality that evolves with the times, making it the perfect pairing for a successful online presence.
