Overall Satisfaction with Wix

As a small nonprofit, we are able to create a functional and professional website with little web development knowledge, and we can update it quickly and from any computer. The ability to manage content and quickly make changes/updates is so important for us.

Within our staff of 6 people, two of us manage the Wix site regularly.
  • If you know how to make basic design features in InDesign or even Microsoft Word, you can use Wix. The tools to add graphics, photos, buttons, and other content are easy to intuitively figure out and you can move them around easily.
  • Wix customer service is also some of the best I've dealt with. They have helped us trouble shoot domain registry issues, technical glitches on the website, and other questions. They are super quick to respond and very helpful.
  • We also really like the Wix templates. We're almost ready to publish a newly designed and organized website, and found the templates available on Wix to be beautifully designed and easily customized to fit our needs.
  • It takes time to build each page in a way that fits with the other pages. The templates I've found haven't quite worked for me, so its a lot of building pages, copying pages, and reformatting things.
  • We have some trouble sometimes with formatting pictures so they work in the different templates. This difficulty is more likely a function of our limited design capacity and not an inherent fault of Wix. We would appreciate tutorials explaining how the photo blocks can be used more easily.
  • Using Wix for our website platform has saved us time and frustration by making it easy to manage and update content regularly.
  • Our website looks clean and refreshed, and the new template we'll be publishing soon is even more polished.
I consider myself a reasonably smart person and technologically above-average, but I can't understand WordPress works. The design forms are difficult to use and not at all intuitive, and small changes require what seems like superfluous steps.

Wix solves all of the problems I had with WordPress, and makes me not want to hide from our website.
Content Author / Administrator
My brain simply does not work with WordPress, which is the platform we switched from three years ago. It's must more similar to building pages in Adobe, and seems far more intuitive than other website builders I've used in the past.

I absolutely recommend Wix for anyone tasked with managing a website who doesn't have a specific background in web development. I can translate my Adobe knowledge into functional use with Wix pretty quickly.
