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.

I have designed sites on Wix for less tech savvy clients so they can make updates more easily.

Pros

This web builder is great for clients that do not code and would like an easy web design experience.

Cons

The software is easy to use, but the templates are a bit limited in my opinion.

The software definitely benefits me so that I can have my personal webpage.

Pros

I can use this software to create my own webpage to advertise myself. In addition, I can use this software to create a webpage for my group, even a company.

Cons

I should be familiar with the software first, otherwise it is time consuming to completely create a new webpage.

For a free website for weddings or a temporary page this is a great option. For a more professional business page I would choose a purchased domain

I do not like the speed of the page. Also for the free portion of the program it is not the best setup for mobile use either.

Pros

I used Wix to build a portfolio and it looks fantastic! Using the website builder made creating a website a breeze and there definitely are lot features to choose from to help you show off your work. I'd say this is a definite yes for anyone looking to build a website or portfolio that wants to standout from the rest.

Cons

Because I'm new to website building, I didn't know what all of the features were or where they were located - but there's always a learning curve when it comes to learning something new, so it's fine.

Pros

I liked the ease of use of Wix the most. It's easy to get started with and get others to help edit the site without a significant on boarding process. Plus, the designs look great as well.

Cons

I disliked the pricing tiers the most about this software. Charging a subscription cost to manage a simple text based website without user input is pretty annoying when it costs much more to integrate actual commerce or other user functionality.

Wix allows for a lot of freedom when designing and customizing a website. Both for beginners and experts there is little that cannot be done with Wix if you have enough time to figure out various aspects of the website building tool.

Nothing there isn’t to like about Wix some areas of building a website take a little more time than others, but that comes with most website builders.

It's pretty easy to use and I think most people with no website experience could figure this out. Their templates and usability have improved greatly since the last time I used it which was probably 2-3 years ago. Great for resume pages and small business.

Despite some minor functionality limitations, the Wix customer service team has never failed to provide me with complete and immediate solutions to any of my issues with the platform. I've tried other templated website creators, and I feel that Wix has the best value and the highest quality product.

Pros

The Wix drag and drop platform is incredibly simple. Combined with a large selection of pre-formatted templates, a complete novice could create a professional looking website in a matter of hours, all for the fraction of the price of hiring a web development firm.

Cons

Editing the elements on the site can be tedious, and time consuming. Occasionally I will add content blocks and need to extend them to add more content, which caused a domino effect when stretching the block to create more space. Long story short, sometimes ease of the drag and drop has its limitations.

Pros

Like their commercials claim it is very easy for anyone to make a a great looking website. Wix has a lot of pre-made templates to choose from so there is no need to re-invent the wheel. Easy drag and drop builder for re-arranging items adding your own information, pictures, etc. Overall, very easy for someone with limited experience to create a visually pleasing website and create an online presence.

Cons

In interest of fair disclosure, I'm a web designer so probably a little biased.

Closed eco-system: You are basically at Wix's mercy when it comes to available features and add-ons for your website. It's nearly impossible to imagine what features you may need in a year or two for your website. The feature may or may not be available on Wix.

Pricing: Initially the prices are very reasonable, but as you add features and add-ons your monthly expense can increase substantially.

I actually made my first site with WIX; it was nothing special, but I had it up within a day and it was at the very least presentable

Pros

Free & relatively easy to use -- at least I think it is still free. Pretty much everything is drag and drop, I don't remember needing any knowledge of coding

Cons

It did hang a fair amount -- never really crashed, but would just stop working for a few minutes and I would either have to reload the page and start over anything that was unsaved, or take a break and wait for it to figure itself out

My business website it up and running without any issues. I was easily able to create it in under a day.

Pros

I love that I can build my website without having to pay someone else to do it for me. It is easy to understand and simple to build because they guide you through all the steps to and ask you the different features you would want your website to have.

Cons

I don't like that i have to have WIX all over my website because I didn't pay the membership.

I have been using Wix for many years creating websites for boat dealerships, interior designers, etc. I have found that it is extremely easy to use and in the end the website has turned out great. There are a lot of add-ins that are very helpful as well (appointment manager, etc.)

Cons

There isn't much that I don't enjoy about this product. I think the pricing is about right and I believe is a good value. The mobile website controls could be improved, however.

Pros

For my health software company, we host our corporate website on Wix - with Wix we were able to make a professional and visually pleasing website that could provide more information (features, pricing, contact information etc) to website visitors and that was all we needed from the website. For the money, Wix provided everything we needed and was VERY user friendly.

Cons

For my custom leather company, where I needed a real webstore, I chose a different solution because Wix does not have as strong an offering when it comes to ecommerce as some of its competitors. They run a little slow (as in your website will be slow) if you have too much content and you're not paying top dollar (which I can't afford as a small business). They also don't seem to have the reporting features and integrated solutions for ecommerce that are available with other software options. Thats not necessarily a bad thing - Wix works GREAT for my other company.
So you have to consider the solution you're looking for - Wix provides a fantastic and easy to use website building solution for non-programmers (like me), but is perhaps not the best solution for your money for an ecommerce/sales site.

As a board member for a non profit who was in dire need of a website makeover, this was an easy suggestion. I was able to quickly and easily explain the process to the director and she was on her way to a beautiful update in no time.

Pros

Ease of Use, Customer Service, Anyone Can Make A Website Easily

Cons

There isn't anything not to like about Wix...unless you count the amount of times you're prompted to upgrade or publish your site.

I use it at work and for personal stuff. I normaly tend to build my sites from scratch, but honestly they have great templates and it has always been easy to use.

Pros

This is one ofthe essiest and friendliest platforms I've trie for bilding websites from scratch. It is very intuitive and easy to use. Is offers pre-made templates if you don't feel like starting with a blank page and it has a lot of features that make websites look great.

Cons

I don't hing there is anything that I don't like aboout the software. It has work great for me so far. I guess the only thing I don't really like too much is having to modify the mobile view constantly, that is the only thing I think they could improve.
