Wix Review

5.0 last month New

Comments: I adore how simple it is to create a website and customize its look. Comparable tools to more expensive items.

Pros:

I love how easy it is to make a website and design it to you're liking. Similar tools to other products that cost a fortune.

Cons:

I don't like the big water mark at the top of the website. I would love for it to be at the bottom so it's not the first thing you'll see. I get why it's there I just wish it was more smaller or less visible first opening the page.

Easy to use While Retaining the Flexibility to Grow Into

4.0 2 months ago New

Comments: Overall, WIX is my preferred platform to build as I value empowering my clients to learn how to manage their own websites for basic upkeep. WIX is easy to teach clients how to use and is very affordable. I also appreciate that WIX allows you to create your website on the free account so that my clients don't need to feel rushed in learning how to use the platform before paying for it (unlike other platforms that only offer 2 week trials). By far, best customer service out there.

Pros:

By far the biggest selling feature for me with WIX is their customer service. By far the best, most responsive and ready-to-help team I've encountered. Every platform has it's glitches but at least WIX is always there to help. It's also one of the easier platforms to build a website on. Super user-friendly so that I can easily teach my clients how to use it. I also appreciate that WIX allows you to create your website on the free account so that my clients don't need to feel rushed in learning how to use the platform before paying for it (unlike other platforms that only offer 2 week trials). By far, best customer service out there. Finally, it's the best compromise for small businesses between where they are now (small or startup) and what they need to grow into.

Cons:

I does tend to glitch more often than I would like. However a quick refresh of the page usually fixes the issue. I also miss the old agency benefits account.

Spare yourself and find a company who cares for their customers

1.0 4 weeks ago New

Comments: Wix is so bad as a vendor it has made me think about closing up shop as a business owner.

Pros:

Wix has overall good reviews, so I came here to save others from the pain I have had to go through. Wix is like owning a boat, the best thing of owning it is the day you get rid of it.

Cons:

Support is worse than awful. If you need a report for your accountant and it is not working, they will not fix it. You will get the run around and they will throw different ideas at you until you just plain give up. Even if you explain what you need and have copies of the same report you ran last month, they will just tell you it works on their end.

The best website and content management software of 2024

4.0 4 months ago

Comments: Excellent i am very happy with the drag and drop

Pros:

You can also customize the design and display of your posts to match your site. Post Management is important because it allows you to keep your blog organized and up to date, which can help you attract more visitors and keep them engaged with your content.

Cons:

It has great features but most of them needs you to learn for a duration of time.

Non-present to Real Time Presence

4.0 2 months ago New

Comments: We were able to recreate our website, improve it, and offer enhancements quickly and easily. Our need to book events and track ticket buyers is important to our identity. Events are an important revenue stream for us. We direct customers to the site for menu and beer options, what's happening and other specials. It is our source of truth.

Pros:

The ease of use. The content management capability and simplicity is what got my marketing and customer team on board and to adopt this as our primary web tool.

Cons:

It took a minute to figure out the add-on features, where they were and how to use them.
