About Wix

Wix is an industry-leading website-building and business management platform that helps users create any type of website and expand their online presence. Wix offers its users different ways to build their sites; for those less tech-savvy, the Wix Editor is the way to go. It boasts a choice of over 900 pre-designed templates that can be customized with an intuitive drag-and-drop editor and various other AI capabilities like an automated text generator.

For developers, Velo by Wix gives the ultimate customization capabilities. Velo is a comprehensive web development platform that enables users to create state-of-the-art sites and web applications. Users can customize the behavior of Wix components, manage data, build web apps, and create robust websites, all while using the visual elements of the Wix Editor.

Other Wix features include mobile-friendly optimization, custom domain names, one-pager websites, as well as beautiful blogs, social buttons and online stores. Users can manage site design with templates, an image editor, high-resolution stock images, plus video backgrounds, and more. Wix also takes care of all the website hosting and security for its users with sturdy infrastructure for speedy page loading and by ensuring that every site is optimized for Core Web Vitals.

Wix is also much more than a website builder. It's a comprehensive business management platform. Users can gain valuable insights through site analytics and optimize visibility using the SEO wizard. They can enjoy a personalized mailbox and leverage communication and financial tools to streamline and automate operations. They can also create, send, and share impactful emails about sales, new products, services, or events using Wix's email marketing technology.

Lastly, Wix’s tools can now be accessed from anywhere on the web with Wix Headless. This cutting-edge API and convenience SDK (node), lets users access the very same business management platform and services that power businesses on Wix, from any app or website that users build.

And when it comes to support, users can fall back on a 24/7 help center, knowledge base, video tutorials and walkthroughs, and phone calls.

The Most Flexible Drag and Drop Website Builder

Reviewed on 13/02/2021

Wix is an amazing web builder. I can't remember properly but I think I tried building my first website when I was in school with HTML, CSS and I saw their ADs on YouTube and thought about giving Wix a try - and I am very happy that I chose to try Wix. I learned that creating a website was a lot easier than I expected - thanks to Wix. Since then I have been using Wix for my personal projects and client projects and from my experience, Wix is the best visual web builder currently available in the market. Its the editor is without any doubt - the best Drag and Drop Editor as its editing capacities has overtaken every other builder.

Pros

There are many practical templates that we just import and are ready to use - which is the thing that I like most about Wix. There are many builders available now in market with fancy looking templates but most of them aren't practical to use. But the case is different with Wix - the templates are ready to be used - very practical and optimized for mobile devices. This is why I always choose Wix to design websites for clients with small businesses who want to be able to edit details themselves as editing is easy too.

With Wix, an above-average computer user can create a professional-looking website and even average computer user can edit websites. I generally get $14 per month plan which doesn't show ADs and gives more than enough storage for most websites. I guess $14 per month for a website is a pretty good price.

Another thing I like most about Wix is automatic backups which makes sure that we never lose any information.

Cons

As a PageSpeed Optimization specialist - the thing I like least about Wix is its slow loading speed. I don't think we should be expecting a blazing fast website when we use Drag and Drop Website Builder. However, I think Wix is enough for small businesses as they are a lot faster than they used to be and their speed isn't terrible.

Other than that - I can't think of any cons about Wix.

Wix, Your Potential Business Site Builder or No?

Overall my experience with wix has been great. By using wix I'm eliminating business problems by being able to create professional template alternatives, providing an easy and understanding website creator, and showing products I am selling easily for customers to view and purchase if they need to. Benefits I realize I have by using Wix is that I am able to provide excellent customer service to my clients and this helps me gain a more clientele and great reviews/ratings from customers.

Pros

Overall I really like using wix as a website builder. I believe the most impactful features wix provides is having many customized options like using artistic illustrations and templates to add to your site, you're able to have a professional logo of your own, customer support is easy to connect with, and you're able to discover new techniques that show you different ways of providing services to customers. Integrations were fairly easy for me to do with existing business processes I use like Goodle Drive, PayPal and Zapier.

Cons

I didn't really find any features that weren't useful for any business to use when creating his website. The only issue I did have a few times was sometimes Wix lags with internet connection and can a little time to load. But this issue has only occured twice for me. As mentioned before no difficulties happened for me when integrating with existing business processes I currently use.

Nice Basic Way to Start Out Making Websites, but Only Covers the Basics

Wix is great for first-time website designers and people who don't want to spend much time putting up their website. The cons are that it does look less nice than websites made on other platforms, there are fewer features you can customize to your website, and their customer service is subpar.

Pros

Wix is a very easy tool to use to develop your website, especially if you don't want to pay for a domain name then you can create a free website under their company it will just start with www.wix.com/(your website title). It is great for beginners just wanting to get their feet wet in website designing, which is exactly how I started using it.

Cons

Other Softwares like Wordpress are much more user-friendly, many more themes and free add-ons to make your website much more customizable. The biggest con for me is their customer service. Instead of BlueHost, Wordpress, and many other website developing platforms that provide you a number to directly contact their customer service whenever you want, for Wix you have to fill out an online form and go through all the hurdles of them showing you "is this what you were looking for" to the basic questions before you get to schedule a time when Wix can call you. This might be fine if most the issues users had were very basic (like I said this software is for beginner website designers) but anything more complex than "how do I make a new page" quickly turns into a whole ordeal of jumping through the hoops and waiting for them to call you back. Additionally, if you try to move your website to another website platform (like WordPress) they give you even more problems. Personally, when I tried to move my website out of Wix because I wanted more features, I scheduled a time for Wix to call me to assist and they never even called. I ended up having to have the company I was switching the website into to help me!
