WIX For the Win
Updated: Oct 23
5 reasons why I chose WIX for web design -- and you should too.
When I got started blogging in 2012, it was a wilderness out there. Real mom blogs were still a thing then -- not everyone was uber wealthy or pretending to be. Heck, duck mouth selfies weren't even a thing yet. It was an awesome time for everyday people to shine. So, I laid claim to my piece of the new frontier.
Nobody knew how blogs would blow up -- both good and bad. But I knew you had to put your best design foot forward or I'd end up internet toast.
You’ll be posting loads of engaging content, so be sure to keep your blog organized with categories that also allow visitors to explore more of what interests them.
Wix is absolutely free for beginners! This is crucial for first-time web designers. You can interact with the various templates and pick and choose what works for you, without paying a dime.
2. Pick and Click
There are literally hundreds of Wix templates to choose from. They're catagorized too, which makes selection super easy. You can pick from nonprofit community-style websites to food blogs, businesses, and more. Just pick it and click it, and you're on your way to a stunning website.
3. Drag and Drop
The Wix editor allows for easy customization by featuring a ton of drag and drop options. So you won't have to worry about your webste looking too much like the ready-made template. You can add new pics, redesign the text, choose a fresh layout, and add a blog. Who doesn't love a good drag-and-drop option?
4. Speed & Safety
Keep your viewers engaged with Wix. Their servers are designed for Wix websites. That means they allow for lightning quick loading and less lag. This is important because people click away in a flash when websites move slowly. You don't want folks to miss your great content because of slow servers!
5. The Customer is Always Right
Wix customer service can't be beat! Wix offers a bevy of ways to support you through your web-building journey, including hundreds of tutorial videos, dozens of apps, and live tech suport. There are videos for cellphone and tablet optimization and how to add cool tricks like parallax scrolling. They will even walk you through the process of getting your website monetized.
The best part about Wix is the optionaility. You can work within the free sites or pay for upgraded website options, apps, and downloads.
If you simply don't have time to build a website yourself, Wix has web design experts on hand to take over for you--for a fee. The professional website design services offer the added benefit of taking the guesswork out of SEO optimiziation for your website.
