Website creation made easy
One of the initial worries that a starting online business owner face is the dilemma building his very own website. For sure, one can start by simply creating a Facebook or Instagram account to launch a brand, but it is very helpful that potential clients can visit a site solely dedicated for the label.
Creating a website that is tailored to the look and feel you want your brand to convey could sound a little bit daunting. Especially for those who do not have any background with the technicalities of creating a website. More often than not, you just resort to hiring professionals to do the job for you which can cost a lot of money for a starting entrepreneur.
But there are a lot of free online website builders that even those who know nothing about site building can use. That great thing about these creators is that they are specifically made to be user-friendly. From its layout to function buttons, they are pretty much straightforward. In today’s post, we focus on one particular web development platform called Wix.
What is Wix and what can it do?
You may have already seen or heard about Wix from this year’s Super Bowl, where they released a cool TV spot featuring actors Jason Statham and Gal Gadot. You may have also come across on of their short YouTube ads playing before you can actually watch the clip that you want to see. But what is Wix and what makes it a perfect tool for starting online entrepreneurs?
Wix is a development platform that people can use to make their own online sites. Whether it is for a business or a blog site, the online tool offers users hundreds of templates that can be used to format their soon-to-be website. After that, one can start curating the content and the graphics that he/she wants to be on the page.
One of the greatest thing about Wix is that it is very easy to use. The development platform allows website designers to create a web page via drag and drop motions This means that even if you really do not know how to do HTML coding, you can still build your very own website.

Wix is most popularly known for its ease of use and the fact that it is free. Although the service is free, there are also premium plans you can subscribe to that give you benefits such as increased bandwidth and storage, ad vouchers, an online store, and removal of any Wix branding/ads. These plans are most helpful for small businesses, freelancers and anyone looking to sell items online because of the cheap pricing.
Furthermore, there is an application market that you can help use to improve your website. You can use this app to add live chats, social media feeds, forms and much more helpful things that will make your blog/website much more functional and aesthetically appealing.
Wix is great because it is very simple to use. There are grid lines and guidelines for you to help you make the website more user-friendly and optimized towards other devices as mobile devices (phones and tablets). The ADI is also easy to work with as well as you just have to select your preferred theme style, layout, etc.. and Wix will do the rest of the work.
