Is WIX a 'good thing'?
Anyone any information about Wix? Offering free web sites?
I have always loved website design but being completely coding deficient have depended on wysiwig builders - and over the years have tried and used a number of different products. There's a lot of good ones out there but ultimately I felt frustrated because I could never attain the polished look that you can get out of a regular sophisticated coding builder.
I then discovered Wix and I finally found something that is "easy" to use and delivers beautiful results. I say "easy" in quotes because creating an effective website is never easy just like writing a good novel isn't easy. It's easy to get carried away with the bells and whistles and forget to follow the rules for effective web based communications.
It's not perfect by any means - but even if it were perfect I'm sure people would find something to complain about. For me, considering that I simply cannot obtain the quality of design with any other wysiwig builder makes me accept the limitations with patience and understanding.
As far as customer service goes, I have had a terrific experience - There are bugs as the HTML builder which I use is still in beta - so I called the 800 number several times and was always responded to by intelligent and caring reps. I am putting more and more of my customers PRO websites into the WIX platform - I have the confidence that it is going to get better and better over time so I will recommend it wholeheartedly - again, don't expect perfection and accept its limitations.
I used to use Wix a lot and did find it very good for making a website. It's definitely the right place to make a flash website but for html websites I'd say there are better sites. For example Wordpress sites are great, especially if you've self-hosted it. The free Wordpress site "wordpress.com" is one par above wix because to me it's much easier to use. But also if you sign up for free hosting somewhere such as: 000webhost.com you could just upload a wordpress installation and then you'd have a great site that you can fully customise, adding plugins and themes.
In my opinion it's a bit tight choosing between wix and wordpress.com (note: the free sites from them don't allow you to add plugins/themes only if you self host it somewhere else)
P.S. Wix has a bigger advertisment for themselves than wordpress.com, hope this helped

I'd be really interested to hear if you have any experience using this site. It seems really easy to use but is WIX a good long term solution for a small operation? I need a shopping cart.Thanks in advance!

I'm in the midst of looking for a Blogsite for a soon to be home based business. I will need to create and 'feed' the blog but as I'm a non-tech-savy-DoDo it needs to be easy to set-up and "operate". Any suggestions would be appreciated.Thanks ahead of time regards Zsuzsy
