Think of Brizy Cloud and Brizy WordPress plugin as two separate options in your designer/developer toolset that will help you achieve different things more efficiently.
You'll use one or the other based on the problem you want to solve. Let's put down some facts, and then list some best use case examples.
(Remember, this not a WordPress Vs Cloud thing, as they are complementary products)
- you can create complex websites (e-commerce, blogging, etc)
- you need to install it
- you need to host it
- you need to take care of server security
- you have access to a lot of solutions for your problems via plugins
Best use case examples:
- complex e-shops that require user logins, payments, shipping, most likely you'll need the power of the WooCommerce plugin
- dynamic content websites like blogs and magazines that have comments and rating functionality, categories and tags and all the filtering and sorting.
- websites that uses dynamic fields plugins (ACF, Metabox, Toolset, Pods)
- when you are forced to use a certain combination of plugins to solve your problem (ex. WooCommerce for shopping paired with Lifter LMS to create your courses website).
- you can create landing pages & HTML multi page websites (think funnels and marketing landing pages and presentation websites)
- you don't need to install anything
- you don't need to host it (free self hosted options available)
- you don't have to worry about security
- you have access to certain functionalities that solves precise problems
Best use case examples:
- marketing landing pages (funnels, for sales, webinars, VSLs, Upsells, lead generation, etc).
- any multi page static HTML websites (think presentation websites. portfolio, artists, businesses that only need to present what they do and have a contact form there, restaurant websites, etc)
- when you are working with clients and need a fast prototyping tool to bounce some ideas around in real time.
As you may have already noticed Brizy Cloud works great for when you want to create a static HTML landing page or website and you don't want the WordPress overhead (hosting, installation, managing security, updates, etc) and you want to be efficient, agile with the minimum friction in achieving your goal.
There is no point in putting on the full climbing gear set if you want to go hike on a hill, the sneakers will do. On the other hand, if your project is to climb a rock, then you'll need that climbing gear set since you will actually use it.
