Why I build websites in Wix
Updated: Apr 10, 2021
Although I have managed a website for several years, creating and changing the content I hadn't built one until I was furloughed. I chose Wix because when I researched the 'best website builder for small business' Wix came out on top, time and time again.
If you have done any design work, with programs like Adobe InDesign, you'll see a lot of similarities in the way the website design is layered, how pages are added and reordered, as well as how images and text are placed.
They offer several choices depending on your level of experience:
ADI gives a lot of help to the complete novice, but the level of customisation is limited.
Editor increases the level of customisation available to you, so you can do pretty much whatever you want.
I've considered using other website builders, such as WordPress, but find it easier to be more creative in Wix and because there's no need to use a template, I can create bespoke websites that help your business stand out. As long as Wix stays at the top of the rankings, I'd rather specialise and start designing more in Editor X (although it is slightly more expensive).
There's a great range of business tools available, contact forms, booking systems, email campaigns, shops the list is endless (well almost!).
What all this means is that the development time is significantly reduced, you can get a bespoke website built and live very quickly, once you know what you want and have the content ready. The delays to the jobs that I've completed so far, have been due to the client having content available. I'm quiet happy to write content if you can guide me, which might just mean directing me to the relevant resources.
If you need a website for a small business, but maybe thought that a bespoke website would cost you too much, please get in touch, I'd be happy to help.
