Overall Satisfaction with Wix

I've used Wix to set up a personal website for myself. That website serves as my personal portfolio and my resume. I have about 6-10 pages on it. With the numerous templates that Wix provides, I was able to browse ideas and then build my own site using a number of techniques I saw. I did the same thing for a client of mine who had already bought the premium Wix package but then decided they did not want to take the time to set up their site themselves. For them, I was able to build a 20-page website highlighting their services as well as add a blog and an event page for them.
  • Wix provides new users with templates so that you can really get a site up and running within an hour or so.
  • Wix publishes a daily blog that teaches you how to use their website as well as other digital marketing skills such as SEO.
  • If you're willing and have the time, you can customize your site down to the last detail.
  • In my experience, Wix has trouble working with Chrome. The click and drag features are jumpy at times causing misplaced images and text.
  • Again, with Chrome, it seems that the site editor/interface is very slow to load.
  • If you're looking to customize your site to its fullest, you will have to upgrade to a paid account.
  • For clients, it has had a positive ROI. The site I built for them using Wix was able to function as their hub for events and for marketing their events.
  • For myself, it has had a small negative impact. I've let my premium account expire due to not needing it anymore. For generating leads for my freelance business I've found that LinkedIn is by far the better choice.
  • Overall, I have been able to add my experience using Wix to my personal portfolio and resume. I can advise clients on its pros and cons as well as jump in and help them with the Wix interface if they ask me to do so.
WordPress is the product I've used as extensively as Wix. WordPress is better for professional purposes. Wix does have the capability of syncing with your WordPress blog or website if you'd like it to.
Content Author / Administrator
Wix is especially well suited for a person who is not familiar with building a website. It can be used by kids. It is very well equipped for small businesses who want to have an attractive, eye-catching site. Also, it is great for e-Commerce. If you or your company requires a unique website that is professionally done and will attract B2B or B2C clients with a higher price point, you may want to higher professional web designer instead of using Wix.
