Wix: The Good
Whether you’re a first-timer to building a website or an experienced pair of hands, we’re confident you’ll be impressed by Wix’s features and how easy to use the platform is.
No website builder can hold a candle to Wix when it comes to the quality and variety of features it offers. The designing tools for each aspect of the website are comprehensive, in-depth and completely at your whim. There are also a huge range of business tools from SEO plugins, to invoicing apps. You can add pretty much everything you could want on a website using Wix.
Wix has an enormous selection of apps on offer, and they’re simple to add to your site – many in as little as one click.
On the Wix app store, you’ll find apps for everything from analytics tracking, to appointment setting plugins, to live chat functions. If you can’t find it in the design portion of the Wix site, chances are you’ll find it in the app section.
SEO, or search-engine optimisation, is the process of making sure your pages appear at the top of search engines such as Google or Bing. Of course, these search engines can drive loads of visitors to your site, so it’s pretty helpful to be at the top of the search results page.
Fortunately, Wix has the largest onsite SEO assistant of any website builder, along with an SEO specific knowledge centre. All of the tips-and-tricks are straightforward to follow and easy to act upon to help make sure your own website ranks better in Google search.
Put simply, Wix is great value for ecommerce. It offers an ecommerce facility for less money than any of its competitors. This means that if your business involves selling products over the internet, Wix is the best way to get started.
It’s also incredibly easy to set up an ecommerce function on your Wix site. Simply add one of the apps (Wix has two of its own), then you can add the products, stock tracking, sale prices and set up a payment method and you’re good to go.
ADI is Wix’s artificial intelligence program that can build you a website based on your answers to a few simple questions. Wix wasn’t the first company to offer this kind of service, but its ADI service is now certainly the best around – it’s quick, utterly simple and gives great results.
The ADI service is particularly suited to businesses that need to get online quickly. The AI gathers business information from places such as Google, Facebook and Instagram to give you photos, text and industry specific details in a matter of seconds.
Of course, once the AI has finished building your website shell, you can edit and customize your site with Wix’s simple tools. So there’s no need to worry about ADI leaving you high-and-dry with a website you don’t like.
