Wix Website

1. Who’s Wix For?

As soon as I created my account, I was met with a menu asking me to decide what kind of website I’d like to create.

For the purpose of this review, I chose business.

In addition, Wix also caters for photographers, musicians, events, bloggers, health, wellness, fashion, beauty and education.

You’d be forgiven for thinking that this is a basic option that every website builder would offer, but unfortunately, that’s not the case as I’ve found from my other reviews.

2. Templates – Beautiful, Customizable Designs To Suit Your Business or Project

Wix boasts a huge range of great looking, modern templates and is easily one of my favorite features. You also have the option of starting from scratch with a blank canvas if you’d rather.

You’ll find all Wix’s 500+ templates neatly filed away in categories including small business, online stores, restaurants, photography, blogs, designers, weddings, portfolios, and CV’s.

And that’s not all. When you open up a category, you’re able to drill down even further

For example, I clicked on the “Business” category and was then met with sub-categories such as consulting & coaching, services & maintenance, advertising & marketing, automotive & cars, real estate, finance & law, technology & apps, and pets & animals.

The great thing is, all of the templates are pre-loaded with sample content including text, images, and forms which is great for anyone like me, who doesn’t have an artistic bone in their body.

Like when I created my test site for a removals company, it came equipped with a booking form especially for the removals industry where customers can see pricing and book directly online.

When it comes to customizing your template, Wix offers beginners a sense of freedom that you simply won’t find with most other website builders.

  • Want to change the site colors to match your brand? No problem.
  • Want to make that image larger or move it to the other side of the page? You can do that too.
  • Want to change the color of the text or change fonts completely? Yep, you guessed it!

3. Is Wix Easy To Use? (hint…yep)

When it comes to ease of use, Wix is definitely up there as one of the easiest I’ve tested.

However, at first glance, the Wix editor may look a little daunting thanks to all of the website building tools you have at your disposal.

It can be, so my advice is to take a few minutes to find your way around and settle in. If you’re unsure of what a particular tool does, all you need to do is hover over it and a short description will tell you exactly what it is.

In no time at all, you’ll be editing text, uploading images, creating new pages and adding features such as contact forms and social media buttons.

All of which can easily be achieved thanks to Wix’s beginner-friendly, drag ‘n’ drop editor.

4. Wix ADI – Hands-Free Website Creation…Almost

If all of the above sounds a little too much like hard work, then you should definitely consider taking Wix ADI for a whirl.

It stands for Artificial Design Intelligence and allows you to build your website by answering a series of questions about your business and also attempts to gather any existing information from your social media sites etc.

After sign-up, you have a choice of whether you wish to create a website yourself or take Wix ADI route.

When complete, you can publish your site live to the web or you’ll have the option to manually edit your site in the usual way to customize it further which from my experience, you probably will need to do.

Still, it’s a great way to get the beginnings of a customized website and a much more “hands-off” approach.

5. Wix App Market – A Treasure Trove of Business & Marketing Features

When you’re done with the basics such as editing text and images, it’s time to start adding a little functionality to your website.

Many features such as a blog, contact form, image gallery, video, music, social media buttons and even a store for your site can all be added in the main Wix editor.

If you require a wider choice or more advanced features, say hello to the Wix App Market where you’ll find over 260 applications including a wide range of business and marketing tools.



6. Choose How Your Site Looks On Mobile Devices

After you’ve taken all that time to build your website and get to look exactly how you want, I imagine the last thing you want to be doing is creating a separate version for people using smartphones or tablet.

Fear not. Your website will automatically look good and functional properly “right out of the box”.

In addition, Wix gives you a separate mobile editor which you can switch to with just a click.

Whilst some may see that as a pain in the butt (excuse my language), I see it as a huge advantage because it allows you to streamline your visitor’s mobile experience.

See for yourself how my test site looks on a smartphone.

I did have to move a couple of things around on my test site until it looked the way I wanted, but it only took a few minutes and I was very pleased with the result.

You’ll also have the option of adding a mobile menu bar which displays your contact details that when clicked, allows smartphone users to tap your phone number and call or email you directly.

This is a huge advantage if you’re creating a site for a local business.

The Final Verdict

To sum up, Wix provides a fantastic, versatile platform to create your own website for your business, modest online store, or project with relative ease.

“Plugging-into” one of their industry-specific templates preloaded with sample content will save you bags of time rather than starting from scratch and they have a plethora of apps allowing you to add functionality to your site.
