Why I chose Wix for my website
Okay, so many of my friends who run and operate their website use a self-host like WordPress. Their reason why they chose WordPress because they can build their website form complete scratch, as to Wix its all inclusive.
Here are the reasons why I chose Wix to create my website.
1. Great speed
Even though my website has a average speed, that is still pretty darn good from most websites out there which take between 2.0 - 3.0 seconds to load, which is pretty slow.
(Based on what widgets you have on your website)
Wix offers their clients so many many MANY templates. There is a MASSIVE collections of great templates for you to choose from. They are all based on the niche your site is going to be about. Which is fantastic!
My website, I made from scratch. Creating your website isn't hard at all.
This here is obviously my website. As you can see it looks professionally made. And I am here to tell you it wasn't hard at all. It's literally drag and drop and BAM! There you go!
3. WIX App Market
Wix offers a wide range of applications you can add to your website for free! I mean there are some of those apps that are 3rd party which does require a payment for their full service or you can just use the basic service from that app for free.
Like I said, there are tons of applications you can choose from and they narrow it down for you to choose by catagory
4. They are there to help you
If you have an questions or concerns about your website that you published with Wix, they are there to help you. Shoot Wix a message and they will return your answer within hours. In my experience when I had questions and I needed help, I would shoot them a message and within an hour or two I would get a reply. Now obviously it depends on the time of day, do it at night and you will get an answer the following day.
5. Getting your site out there with SEO
Wix will help you out to make sure your site is ready to be out to the world. Wix has a guide to help you make sure your SEO is good and ready for all the search platforms.
Wix will ask you what your site is about and it will analyze the best key words for you to use to make sure your site is getting searched with relevant key words.
SEO is pretty scary. I still have trouble with it, but don't let that scare you because because Wix has their Wix SEO Wiz.
Now, if you have a website that is run by Wix and you're wanting to try something new, I know now that you can transfer your site, buy why would you? LOL
So these are 5 reasons why I chose Wix for my website. I know there are still great things that Wix has to offer, but Ill let you decide on that.
