Wix

Wix is perfect if you need your website to look professional, but you don't have a lot of resources or time. It's also great if you've never built a website because the platform suggests design ideas and easily shows you how you can gradually improve your site with plug-ins like analytics, payments, email forms, etc. You'll have a beautiful website as soon as you start, but it will become even more personalized, the more you learn. Wix may be inappropriate for companies with huge e-commerce websites or sites with extreme amounts of content and graphics. You would need to have a web developer on your team to manage that. However, I still don't think it would cause any issues to start off with Wix.

Pros

Wix

  • Wix allows a lot of flexibility in design. For me as a designer and a brand manager, that's very important.
  • Wix has a lot of the current options for page design, such as parallax, video backgrounds, and the like.
  • Wix code allows us to create dynamic pages, and do custom things previously only possible on a very costly custom-made site.

Cons

Wix

  • Wix's design features can be a curse as much as a blessing. It's tempting to use animation and overdo it on big images but they'll kill page load time and at a certain point become detrimental to usability.
  • Wix code is not for the faint of heart. You have to be willing to dive into the world of Javascript and relational databases. Not as "out-of-the-box" as their marketing would like you to believe. Still, powerful though.
  • On certain things, such as buttons for example, they need to make them more style-based. Each button on the site is essentially custom designed by you. So if you decide you want the button style different, you have to manually redesign it for every instance on the site. No universal CSS change for that.

We will definitely renew Wix. The ability to completely control our website has been invaluable to us. We will maintain this service as long as we are an incorporated organization, we've tried several other software options and this has been the best solution by far for all of our needs.

Alternatives Considered

Wix

Wix is more flexible and more powerful. But it's also got a steeper learning curve. For our organization, it is the right combination of power, low cost, and allowing do-it-yourself.

Return on Investment

Wix

  • I’ve had the opportunity to freelance a considerable amount of times thanks to having an accessible and attractive Wix site
  • I’ve relied quite heavily on Wix to communicate my work to potential clients; without it, it would have been considerably harder to push my portfolio
  • Purchasing a Wix domain is very important to remove the unsightly banner ad at the top of your page, which may affect the overall aesthetic of the site and affect the perception of clients, as it has done for me.
