Hi, I'm Takeo Fujii. Ameblo is popular for its effectiveness in attracting customers. Both are popular.
However, if you do a search, you will find that many articles refer to WordPress as "beating Ameblo".
- Ameblo is not beneficial in the long run.
- WordPress is too good for SEO.
- Ameblo is for amateurs.
It even contains information that makes you want to ask, "Whoa... is that true? I've run both Ameblo and WordPress myself. I myself have been using both Ameblo and WordPress. I've been using Ameblo since I was in junior high school.
So, in this article, I will explain the difference between Ameblo and WordPress. I'll be comparing the features and usability.
Why is WordPress recommended?
First of all, let me tell you my position: "If you are doing well in attracting customers to Ameblo, there is no need to force yourself to use WordPress. You can just move when it stops working well.
By the way, I am a WordPress enthusiast who has been using it every day since 2013. That's me, but from a marketing point of view."If it's working, why not?"This is the idea.
There are many women entrepreneurs who use Ameblo for business purposes. One of my business partners is one of them.
When I asked these women why they moved from Ameblo to WordPress.
"Because the famous Mr. 00 said that attracting customers on Ameblo is a wasteland.
You said WordPress would attract more visitors."
Most of the time, the answer will be something like this. ...Well, yeah. You're right.
Indeed, there are many advantages to using WordPress. Let's check out the benefits first.

These are the facts. In fact, the ability of WordPress to attract customers will increase.

However, the Ameblo audience was more likely to generate sales.Sales have dropped since I moved to WordPress.I frequently receive such comments.
Many people on the Internet say "WordPress over Ameblo", but there are quite a few female entrepreneurs who are going back to Ameblo from WordPress.
The reason is.WordPress blogs don't have the ability to attract visitors from the start.This is it, isn't it?
WordPress is certainly a strong SEO tool. There are many parts that can be customized, and it is definitely a powerful way to attract customers in the long run (one or two years).
However, it will take some time before WordPress's ability to attract customers actually starts to take effect. The reason for this is that a newly launched WordPress blog has basically no ability to attract customers. It takes time for it to be indexed by the search engines.
There are many entrepreneurs who start WordPress but fail to get access. This is exactly the reason why many entrepreneurs fail.
