I’m a web designer, and I’ve been using Wix for the last eight years. It has made my life easier.
Ease of Use
I used to spend hours trying to make my website design perfect before I uploaded it to the internet. Now, with Wix, I can create a website in minutes. And my clients love it because they can edit or upload their own content without any difficulty and not incur the costs of having an agency make changes for them. It also has an easy-to-use interface and is very intuitive.
Wix is also really good at SEO keywords or key phrases because you don't have to worry about them as much when you're creating your site on the platform. Your content is a major factor in Google’s equation that will dictate the position of your page in the search results. In order to create content that works well for search engines, it needs to fulfill a few requirements. To be well-ranked, your content should be:
Informative and useful to the reader.
Unique (they can’t find this awesome information anywhere else).
Fresh (this means new, or regularly updated).
A great way to create this type of content is by creating a blog, and filling it regularly with original content. If you don’t fancy yourself to be the next Shakespeare, don’t fret, as there’s so much you can write about in a blog. For example, if you’ve got a gardening business you can give tips on how to avoid killing your orchid, or how you can grow your own avocado tree in your backyard.
Wix is the most secure platform and more secure than WordPress. Read More. All the features and functions of Wix are constantly observed by the dedicated team and necessary measures are taken to ensure their proper working conditions. Besides, any technical issues are taken care of by them promptly. Wix provides a dedicated SSL certificate for websites built by the users, both under free and paid plan. This enables the users to turn their website in an HTTPS site, thereby securing their site and ensuring that all exchange of information is encrypted.
The Only Platform that offers phone support. Whenever I have a problem and Wix's contact form does not have an answer, you can have the option to receive a callback. Essentially, this just means that one of Wix’s agents will call you to provide personalized service over the phone – you’ll just need to submit a callback request first, and be logged into your Wix account on a computer or mobile device.
New Features Constantly Added
Wix continues to add new features and build partnerships, most recently announced a partnership with Google My Business. Read More. All new features to Wix are automatically updated so new apps, features and plugins do not require an agency to update.
Lots of tutorials and YouTube video tutorials
Wix offers a lot of tutorials on YouTube either created by themselves or other Wix users. that show how to use their features and create unique user experiences.
These tutorials are very helpful for those who want to learn how to use the Wix platform. The videos are easy-to-follow, informative, and give you the opportunity to see what the end product will look like. Videos channels like WiX, Wix Fix, Wix Training Academy, Wix Playground, Wix Ideas have lots of step by step tutorials to create various features.
Wix has more than 500 templates on offer which will give you the perfect steer to create your site rather than starting from scratch. Once you've picked your favorite template, you're then free to customize as you see fit with almost total control of all the elements and colors on your pages.
Should that sound like too much work, however, Wix also has its artificial design intelligence (ADI) system. The ADI system will ask you some broad questions about the type of website you want to create from its name to the industry you're going to operate in. By answering these questions, Wix will then spit you out a website shell specifically tailored to your needs.
Once you’ve created the basis of your website, you’ll have access to a plethora of apps and features which will give you the ability to create loads of different types of website – whether you need to build a slick online shop, a simple promotional website, or even a blog. Adding these apps and features is easy as well — it's just like downloading an app for your phone but doing it for a website instead. And Wix keeps improving as well, thanks to better blogging tools and internationalization.
With Wix, you won’t need any experience with website builders, or even web development in general. Its simple but detailed editing system means you’ll be able to create a completely original website without any stress.
It really is simple to add words, images, and videos thanks to the easy menus and user-first principles that make everything feel straightforward. Changing them or moving them around the page is a piece of cake with Wix's drag-and-drop editor. One word of caution, however, is that once you've picked your Wix template, you'll be unable to swap it out for a different template once your site has been published.
