Why Wix may be the BEST website platform if you’re a startup or small business!

As a business owner, you generally have to “wear multiple hats”. This means that in your day to day work you may have to be an accountant, sales representative, marketing director, graphic designer, project manager, public relations manager, and more! You dream of the day when you can outsource these responsibilities to a full team of employees or an eager agency of professionals. Overwhelmed would be an understatement. To add on to your problems, you remember that you haven’t even touched your website in years. Sales seeping through the cracks of your weak online brand presence haunt you in your sleep. Something has to be done.

Wix as a website building platform has been deemed insufficient by many website designers. What they aren’t telling you is their hunger to make money, so they claim that Wix just does not cover your small business needs. As an agency that specializes in web design, Wix is actually our preferred solution for small businesses. Wix helps reduce entrepreneurs overwhelm through its easy to learn user interface that requires no coding experience. Perfect for e-Commerce, blogs, portfolios, scheduling software, and more, here are our top four reasons why Wix may be the solution for your small business.

User Friendly

Wix is a basic online web building platform that makes web design feel natural. We often recommend Wix to our clients that would be considered a start-up or small business because after we have built out their website, it is simple for them to manage.

Here are some user-friendly features on Wix:

  • Wix has an easy to learn drop and drag system that enables high levels of customization.
  • Your website will already be optimized for mobile.
  • Wix handles web hosting and SSL certificates, which can save you time.

SEO Tools

It’s important that your website is getting high quality and quantity website traffic. Search Engine Optimization is the process of improving your website traffic through search engines such as Google or Microsoft’s Bing. It’s important to spend time on SEO so that your website is being seen which is why Wix has advanced SEO tools built in.

Here are some of their built-in SEO tools:

Vast Design Options 

Templates are wonderful because if you don’t have time to build a webpage that is appealing to the eye and easy for the user to navigate, you can just choose one!

Whatever your level of expertise, Wix offers a complete range of design features and endless customizations to help you build a site that stands out.

  • With the Wix Editor you can start from scratch or choose from 500+ fully customizable templates.

Low Cost

The number one reason that small businesses/ and or start-ups settle for a mediocre website is because of the cost to contract a freelance web designer. No one wants to pay thousands of dollars for a website that they don’t even know how to use anymore. Wix low-cost pricing has enabled many to have a strong online brand presence.
