Wix Website Builder
The beginning stages of setting up a website involve registering your domain name, finding a hosting provider, linking your website to your host provider, learning how to use FTP, and connecting your domain name to your website. With Wix, each of these steps is eliminated or as easy as pushing a few buttons.
Wix is a good alternative to WordPress if you are looking for an all-inclusive website builder.
Keep in mind that a fully managed drag & drop website builder like Wix doesn’t give you a team of designers and developers to build the website for you. You’ve still got to build the website yourself. But they do make it easier for you, and being “technical” is not necessarily required.
The key benefit is that Wix automates the technical aspects of managing and operating the website – so you don’t have to.
However, there are some limitations. Your choices are limited to the templates that Wix offers, which most cases, is not a problem since they have a nice assortment to choose from. The bigger issue is that there are limitations in the extra features that they offer to build your website.
For a starter website, you may not find any problems with this, but as your business grows, you might find yourself needing additional features and eventually having to move to a different website platform like WordPress. If this is the case, it will ultimately cost you more money and hassle, because these drag and drop builders do not allow you to transfer files so your web developer will end up having to create a whole new website from scratch.
Either way, we are here to help you. Although you may prefer a Wix website, for its ease of use maintaining and making content changes on a regular basis without having to pay a developer. Often times, business owners find that they don’t have the time or want to acquire the skills necessary to build the initial website. Many business owners value time over money when it comes to things like this and would much rather pay a designer to get things done correctly and on time, so they can put their focus in other areas.
