Wix Software


 

Wix is a cloud-based landing page solution that helps users create and manage websites. The solution provides multiple templates with video backgrounds, fonts and animation. It allows users to customize the website with their own logo and branding.

With the system, users can display images, videos and text in a gallery layout and add zoom-in or fade-in scrolling effects. Wix offers an Artificial Design Intelligence (ADI) module that creates personalized websites for users with text and images. The Wix code module offers serverless coding that allows users to set up their own database collections, build content websites and add custom forms.

Wix allows users to set up an e-commerce portal where users can display products, manage orders and payments. Pricing is per month and is based on bandwidth and storage provided. Support is provided via a knowledge base and an online forum.

Overall really good website for small businesses. Great bang for your buck.

Pros

Easy user friendly interface. Drag and click and you can make an outstanding website. Lots of add ons and features. Reasonably priced. No website knowledge needed. Great way to get started with your business without breaking the bank. Awesome website templates and integrate with google, social media, and other websites.

Cons

Not compatible with all widgets and can have issues while building website but it depends on your internet speed, and also what you need from your website. All these things are minor inconveniences.

I have taken into account this platform to make two webs, giving it an opportunity to experiment, understand and look for good functions that other web design platforms do not have. You just have to try to know what is done, know what is your potential.

Pros

It implements very good templates to create a good blog or website. It contains suggestions that help when creating a site, making the job easier even if you do not know Html5 completely. Very good price.

Cons

I think it is very complicated to make deeply personalized codes to persue of giving you suggestions on the page. In addition, exaggerated ads sometimes are a nuisance, however you can get used to it.

Pros

Wix has a clean and simple interface with drag and drop design options making website building a reality for anyone! With simple templates and pre-made add-ons, your website can look custom and professional in no time.

Cons

Wix is not the cheapest option on the market for website hosting. However, time is money and the simplicity that wix offers is second to none.

Pros

I used Wix for a class project, and it was incredibly easy to manipulate. It has all the basic functions you need to build a simple website, and you can easily log back in and make edits.

Cons

The free version of Wix does not offer much in terms of web design or web page features. The pages would often end up looking pretty plain, and it takes a lot of creative power to make something that automatically looks aesthetically pleasing. Other website creators like WordPress or SquareSpace offer ready-made templates that are prettier and easier to manipulate.

Wix allows you to set up and publish a website in no time flat, which is awesome. The ability to make a mobile site as well is awesome too! The site editor is awesome and the AI has a ways to come but is pretty cool.

Pros

Who wouldn't want to have the most out of a website solution? Wix is trendy and up to date and so user friendly. I have made many sites that are compatible on all devices and meet industry standards. Wix is great for all levels, from beginner to novice - you will not be disappointed.

Cons

I have nothing bad to say about using Wix. The UI is great and so easy to use - anyone can learn it in no time!

I will use Wix in the future for simple e-commerce sites that don't require or can't afford custom web development.

Pros

Wix's editor is drag and drop to the extreme. You can literally drag, drop and resize anything. It's definitely the easiest solution for a novice to build their vision of a site. Whether their vision is user friendly is another story, but at least you have the option. Other providers like Shopify and Squarespace and much more restrictive in their capabilities, but that also helps their websites load faster out of the box. Wix is a behemoth.

Cons

Wix's app marketplace is endlessly frustrating. A simple form should not be a monthly subscription service. It feels ridiculous at times.

I love using Wix to host my website and online portfolio. It was daunting at first because at the time I started my subscription, I was about to graduate from college, but I'm more confident in using the program.

Pros

How easy-to-use it is. As a freelance illustrator and designer, it's really important for me to showcase my work the best way I can, and I like how easy it is to drag my work to the order I want when I want. It's also so easy to upload my work to my database. Being able to navigate from page to page on the site itself is so helpful because if it's easy for me, then it should be easy for potential clients to look through my portfolio and contact me.

Cons

How tricky it may be to check my messages. I don't get notifications often from people who have messaged me via Wix, so I may miss out on an opportunity from someone who didn't choose to email me directly. Setting up a notifications delivery switch will be helpful so Wix can let me know if someone has messaged me.

Worth recommending. It's even fun to use.

Pros

I like how easy Wix is to use. They've improved their site to be more user friendly and optimized for search engines (no more flash sites!).

The pricing is decent, as well. Great for portfolios and small to medium sized businesses, in my opinion.

Cons

As someone in the software development industry, saying I built my website or portfolio on Wix isn't going to give me much cred with my peers or hiring managers.

I love Wix more than every other web platform. The tools are easy to use, the interface is drag-and-drop for a more customized feel, and it's great that there are so many free stock photo options. Even though customer service emails can be occasionally hard to decipher, the community is strong and I never stay with a question for too long.

Pros

It's very easy to learn, design and maintain. The price is more than affordable for what it can do, which is a lot. It can even be free if you don't want a regular ".com" domain.

Cons

I can't think of any cons besides customer service can be difficult to understand sometimes

We are using it to host our main business website. We like it’s look. We like the professional quality and generally we can update as needed. Are not always happy with the translation onto mobile platform and find it difficult to edit.

I love the templates and how professional the finished websites look.

Cons

Editing is sometimes clunky and hard to navigate.

I have been able to help friends and family solve a lot of problems using Wix. One was a local artist who wanted to showcase her work and offer items for sale, another had a non-profit organization that wanted to promote their cause, both were sold on the product and it's services offered after spending an hour or two building using Wix.com.

Pros

I like that you don't have to know much about coding or website design to produce beautiful, functional, customized templates to fit any purpose: brand promotion, upcoming events, businesses, non-profits, you name it! The software allows you to design based on your preference for visual styling, so you can completely customize the look and feel of the website. It also has plenty of pre-built modules that allow you to add additional functionality, whether it be social media integration, e-commerce, embedded video, etc.

Cons

I found that there were some modules, such as e-commerce that were not quite as intuitive as others, but even as a non-technical person, I was able to get it working. So this isn't a big downside at all.

Clean, easy to use. Great for a simple class website, blog, and more.

Pros

This makes a great website for a teacher to use in his or her classroom. You can easily add fun things like forums for students to be able to have discussions on, files available for download (no more "I forgot to bring my homework home" excuse!), calendars, blog and more. It couldn't be easier to use, and there are a lot of fun and attractive templates. Not only easy to create a site, but you create a site that's easy to navigate.

Cons

You do have the .wixsite domain attached to your website, unless you pay for a domain. That's pretty typical for hosting sites. There's a great FAQ section, but I wish there was an easy live chat option.

Pros

If you're looking for something that is easy to use and setup, Wix is perfect for even the most computer illiterate. In this day and age, you need a website for all customers and I can't say enough about how easy it is to use. Plus, there are hundreds of videos available online to help you publish something specific due to so many people using this software.

Cons

Prepare to get blasted with lots of emails once subscribed. Make sure you update your email options after you've created your website. They may have updated their marketing with their emails since, but too many emails can be an annoyance.

as a long time blogger user when i went to use wix i was so overwhelmed at first with all the options and trying to change my design i gave up for a few months then came back to it. if your just going to blog i will say just try blogger or wordpress an set a domain name to it but if your looking for the added store option this is great and pretty easy after a while. this is not something you can rush into it does take time and patience to get it right. there are a lot of help options available to new users which really helped me and i love the fact you can click the text or image and edit it when your in the edit mode to get it right

Pros

has a lot of option looks great when done and you don't need any html or web building skills. this is not for beginners has some advance options to make your site stand out and a lot of helpful tips

Cons

navigation is tricky. can be frustrating trying to set up your site, can be a little laggy when in edit mode
