Wix is a powerful and robust website builder. I chose this platform over Wordpress and Squarespace for several reasons:
Wix is an all-in-one platform.
Wix is more secure and hassle free because you do not need to continually update the widgets, etc.
Whereas Wordpress, (which was originally designed for bloggers) is not an all-in-one platform, and can be hacked more easily and more frequently crashes if you do not hire a website maintenance tech.
Wix vs Squarespace:
I believe Wix is superior to Squarespace because it is much easier to use because of it's intuitive drag and drop editor.
It also has built in functionality (such as photo editors, graphic and vector art libraries, photo and video libraries, so designing your website is a more streamlined process.
Big bonus: With Squarespace you need to optimize each photo before you upload it. Wix does this for you! (It saves you so much time!)
Debunking the myth that Wix websites look unprofessional:
I believe the reason so many Wix websites look DIY and unprofessional is that because it is so easy to use, ANYONE can easily build a website. You do not need to be a trained graphic designer to figure out how to use Wix. (Whereas with Squarespace is difficult to use for the average person. I believe most of the people making their websites on SS have a graphic design background. Therefore SS websites look super sleek and professional.)
However, that is where I come in. You can not be expected to be an expert in your field PLUS be a graphic design genius too! So, I am here to help you. Ask me for design feedback in our private FB group page or in our live Q&A/feedback sessions on Zoom!
