How Wix, Squarespace and Ghost handle digital assets
Scale often requires more management. 

For larger sites with broader features like community, courses, payment and multilingual, I currently work with Wix.

Does the client need a more straightforward but beautiful looking site, I tend to work with Squarespace.

For pure blogging, I choose Ghost.

I already lined out what a Digital Asset Manager does and this blog post I briefly outline if Wix, Squarespace and Ghost work with a digital asset manager.

The digital asset manager (DAM)
Quick outline of what a Digital Asset Manager is and when your business or organization would need one.

Does Wix have a DAM?

Yes, Wix does have a Digital Asset Manager (DAM) feature. The Digital Asset Manager is a tool that allows you to upload and organize all of your media files in one place, making it easy to find and use them on your Wix website or other projects. You can access the Digital Asset Manager by clicking on the "Media" tab in the left-hand panel of the Wix editor.

From there, you can upload and manage your images, videos, audio files, and other media assets. You can also create folders to organize your assets and use tags to label and categorize them. The Digital Asset Manager also allows you to edit your media files, add alt text for SEO purposes, and access your assets from any device with an internet connection.

Does Ghost blogging have a DAM?

Ghost is a popular open-source blogging platform that is designed for professional bloggers and online publishers. It does not have a built-in Digital Asset Manager (DAM) feature, but you can still manage and use media assets on your Ghost blog.

To manage and use media assets on your Ghost blog, you can either upload them directly to your blog's content management system (CMS) or use a third-party tool to store and manage them. Some options for storing and managing media assets include using a cloud storage service like Google Drive or Dropbox, or using a dedicated Digital Asset Management platform like Cloudinary or Bynder.

Once you have your media assets stored and organized, you can use Ghost's built-in image and media embedding features to insert them into your blog posts and pages. You can also use Ghost's built-in image editing and optimization tools to resize, crop, and optimize your images for the web.
