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 love that it is easy to use and that it is a free option for people who need a quick website but don’t have the time or money to invest in a professional one

Cons

There isn’t a ton of customizable options other then the layouts. Once you choose a layout you are kinda stuck with what it lays out. Also wix being a part of the URL is annoying

I liked that it was cheap and relatively decent for a website builder

Cons

I didn't like the limited amount of free templates, the strange glitches that would happen when trying to drag and drop things in place or design certain elements. I've used a free wordpress website builder and found it easier.

Also, the mobile version looks weird sometimes and I wasn't able to make it dissappear and just design something different for mobile.

Pros

This software makes creating a website very user friendly. If you have limited development skills, this software is great, but you are also able to add your own coding as well if you are up for it. I also love the newsletter program attached to the interface.

Cons

It does not have a great program to sell educational weekly packages. You must sell as if it was a one time event.

I started off needing a landing page with Wix. It became more like a website and I was able to connect with consumers from there.

Pros

Being able to easily create a custom website. I also like all the help tools that help you set up your website.

Cons

No cons really. I would like to have more stock photos.

Wix has provided my small business with the free online presence it needed for a short time. It was a good starter website, but it was not able to grow with us into a more long term solution.

Pros

Free
Multiple site layouts available
Beautiful stock photos

Cons

Changing multiple pieces of the website could be very tedious. As a small business owner, I don’t have time to manage every detail of the website, so it took me a while to get everything just right. Someone else might be thankful for that level of detail, but I was looking for plug and play.

My experience with Wix was great. For some reason my company decided to move our website to Squarespace and I'm kind of disappointed with it now because this other platform doesn't allow you the freedom to change things around as Wix does and they don't provide free images either.

Pros

Wix gives the user a lot of freedom to change things around. They offer templates to start off with but they allow you to change the flow and the look of it if you'd like. They also provide a ton of images that you can choose from.

Cons

I can't think of anything I don't like about Wix.

Our business has been able to thrive because of the Wix platform. It works great and we are able to update it on a weekly basis.

Pros

We love and appreciate the different options available on the Wix platform which make it possible for us to offer variety to our customers. We offer online ordering, so Wix allows for smooth transactions.

Cons

We think the mobile site could be improved. Some of our customers have been unable to place orders from a mobile device, intermittently.

Pros

I love the drag and drop editors. It makes building a website so easy that even someone who has no idea what they're doing can manage to produce a timeless, well working website quickly. The templates help round things out and show you the commonly use components, and everything in the backend is made as easy as possible to help get your site working as fast as you can.

Cons

Because it's made to be so easy, a lot of customization options aren't available or are paid extensions. When you look at the templates for the drag and drop website builders across all of the major players, they all kind of look the same. For someone who wants a unique website that stands out, these templates may not be what will best serve you. Cost-wise, there are cheaper options as well if you're willing to put in a little more work and time to build yourself something truly unique.

Pros

I can not fail to note that this constructor is an easy-to-manage and at the same time very functional tool. Excellent visual editor, the ability to create websites of any complexity and focus.

Cons

It will take a lot of time to master all the functions, this is due to the extensive functionality of the application. With illiterate handling of the program, the template can be spoiled. The support system is not informative enough.

I use Wix for my HS robotics team website. The students are fully in charge of it and up date it weekly without any problems. I also encourage my art students to use it for their portfolio websites when applying for college and scholarships. They can easily upload all of their work and make a very professional site.

Pros

The Wix website builder is so easy to use. I teach my students some basic functions of the site in minutes. The rest they "figure out" on their own. I am using the term figure out very loosely because there is really nothing that is hard or confusing about it.

Cons

I currently have no real complaints about Wix.

The experience was pretty good, but not the best. I would recommend Squarespace.

Pros

I have used Wix for a few websites in the past. The controls to build were pretty straight forward, but as with any website builder you need to learn how to use the tools. The templates are great and suit pretty much any need out there in the industry. Full hosting and easy payment plans.

Cons

This one overall was a little more difficult as far a learning the tools to build a website. Options for customization are a little limited, but there a few things that you can do.

We use Wix when creating simple websites. The service offers users a wide range of templates for page decoration. Transition effects are available when scrolling through the site. You can connect large payment systems.

Cons

We now turn to the disadvantages. When creating landing pages, there is a shortage of the ability to conduct A / B tests to identify the best option. I also want to note the minimum number of useful modules in the plugin library.

I used Wix for my starter page as a professional Opera singer. It's was definitely an easy learning experience on how to build and format a website.

Pros

I enjoyed how easy it was to use the editing tools to set up my website. Very clean, explanatory, super easy to edit and basic enough for a starter web page.

Cons

I didn't like that the Wix logo seemed to be everywhere on my personal page.
