Should I use WIX for my business website?

So you're looking for a website for your business, but you're not quite sure where to start?

Well, there are a number of options for you to choose from. First, you can hire a website developer to build you exactly what you're looking for, from the ground up. This typically involves coding every part of how the site looks and it's responsiveness to different devices, how it functions and interacts with the server using a variety of programming languages like HTML, CSS, Javascript and Python. As you can imagine, this can take a lot of time. It also means that once the website is handed over to you, only a developer will be able to make big or small changes so ongoing maintenance of the website will be continuous. As a new business, the hours spent by a website developer can be a huge and avoidable expense.


A solution is to use a website builder like Wix or Wordpress. By the name Wix Dr, I'm sure you can guess which of these we prefer!


Wix is a 'what you see is what you get' online tool that allows websites to be built by dragging and dropping elements, also with the option to add any custom functionality that you require using programming. Elements can easily be adjusted for any device for responsiveness, databases are easily created and modified meaning no 'backend' development is required and the website's look and content can be easily changed after it has been handed over. Having the majority of the infrastructure in place from the start saves tens to hundreds of hours of time.


The reasons why we choose to build websites almost exclusively with Wix include:


Functionality

A lot of the hard work is already in place with a new Wix project, including a lot of the required functionality and compatibility with all devices, ultimately making it a lot cheaper to build for you.


Streamlined

Understanding the inner-workings of Wix, we have perfected a highly efficient workflow to offer an extremely quick turn-around time. Simple websites can be built in a matter of hours/days instead of weeks. This ultimately means we can keep costs low, meaning even small and medium-sized businesses can afford a professional website.


Manageability

Wix content management is very easy for the end-user, which means you can take control of your own website and manage its content. We try to design websites so you don’t need us to make updates or manage your content (although we do offer site editing and ongoing website management if you'd like it!). Even non-technical users with our guidance can easily add blog entries, manage stock and orders, reply to enquiries and even send invoices straight from your websites dashboard!
