Great tool for everyone

Pros

Very nice tool for people who are not developers but understand basics of website building. You need to spend a little time with it and you will like it.

Cons

I think that overall the system is really great, but still I think that some features are lacking of flexibility.

Great for building 3-4 page websites quickly

Pros

Wix is incredibly easy to use. I have use it several times to build websites quickly for clients who currently have no web presence and have no need to a huge multi-page site with lots of bells and whistles. I have also used Wix to build a couple personal blogs. The templates are beautifully designed and easy to use.

Cons

I really don't have many complaints. Occasionally the interface can be a little difficult to work with but really that has been very infrequent and was most likely user error anyway.

First website builder

Pros

When I first launched online, I used Wix to build my site. It was very simple to use, and that's what I liked.

Cons

As far as features go, if you are doing a basic site, this would be fine. Anything that involves more complicated work, Wix would not be a good option since features are limited.

a very approachable website creation tool

Pros

easy to manage for a non-developer. drag and drop interface feels familiar and easy to utilize when editing pages and structuring a site. their templates are also very helpful if you're looking at creating a common site architecture or style.

Cons

The ease of editing can be a bit of a double edged sword for an amateur web designer. some competitors like squarespace or strikingly will encourage you to have your site look a certain way and kind of lock you into something that will look good no matter what. in wix, you can edit it all very easily, and sometimes that leads to messy sites designed by beginners.

Best website maker for small organisations

We ended up with a simple website that was SEO relevant with little spend

Pros

I was able to build my current website with no experience that was awesome

Cons

Apparently, we could not get some javascript codes running with our in-house CRM so they should probably work on that

Wix...NIX

It's easy enough to use for the novice. To access anything worthwhile here, it'll cost you. Save some $$ and go with GoDaddy's "GoCentral" website builder.

Pros

For the price, the features of this offering are nothing to write home about.

Cons

Price Price Price and lack of features. This is just another product that tries to reel you in, get yourself grounded in the product, then unleash the "you need to upgrade to access these features" routine.

Makes something complicated into something easy

A very clever idea to simply a process that baffles most people.

Pros

I've build a couple of websites with this tool and its childsplay, so many customisation options and very user friendly, saved me a lot of money and time.

Cons

The price could be a bit lower if I'm honest but it's not too bad.

Made a website quick and easy

Pros

Good documentation. Site builder is so easy to use that setting up a site can be done in minutes. Lots of templates.

Cons

Dislike the Wix ads but understand since the platform is free. Lacks ability to do sophisticated or in-depth customization

Easy to use, not as aesthetically pleasing as other website building software

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.

Great for non tech savvy!

Pros

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.

Cons

I wish there was greater capabilities with plugins like MailChimp and you weren't pushed to use their products.

WIX helped me start up my own business!

Overall I loved making my first company website using WIX. It was very easy to use & navigate. I loved the fact that it had so many options - I could add a gorgeous online shop to my website & take people's orders easily. It was very fun to use & super the website turned out super pretty!

Pros

Super easy to use & very easy to navigate

Cons

I wish it had more trials so I could really understand what my business needed.

Beauty and Functionality!

Amazing customer support and help desk. Any questions that you may have they are happy to answer and even more happy to help you out. Highly recommend!

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!

Great for custom building sites if you have no coding knowledge

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.

Fast and Easy website building

Pros

Wix allows the average computer and internet user to create and design their own basic website.

Cons

It is difficult if you want to customize the website more than the program allows. But all in all, an excellent way to have a free website to advertise your business information!

Best way to make your own low-budget website!

Very good. Id use it again

Pros

Its very easy to use, even if you’re not a specialist!

Cons

It might sometimes be slow / crashes. Also, one idealy needs more guidance about the size/image format that works best! (Remember: Most people who use Wix aint specialists!)

Perfect product for DIY website

Pros

I am amazed how much efforts Wix software developers put in to make it so easy for a person with absolutely no experience with building website, even not so much familiar with computer can do to create their own website! Their templates library is overwhelming!

Cons

Pricey for a small business who wants to do a lot on their website.

Freelance Designer Is Happy!

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.

Wix has really improved over the years

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.

My go-to web design service

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

Built My Site In No Time

Overall my experience was good. I was able to have a basic website launched in one day.

Pros

It is very ease to use. It is intuitive and has a lot of great templates.

Cons

Some of the customization was not easy, and I would have a liked there to be a little more detail in the customization.
