Six great reasons to choose Wix for website development
Updated: Oct 26, 2021
At Balanced, we specialise in designing and building beautiful, functional and user-friendly websites. Our founder, Marc Bates is a listed Wix Expert, so most of our sites are created in the Wix platform, but we also regularly design and provide content for sites in other platforms including WordPress, Squarespace, and Shopify, and we consult on content, style and UX for all website platforms.
For a long time, the Online Website Building Platforms were considered second class to the Open Source route. But, that has changed as they now offer an incredible degree of creative flexibility. And of these platforms, Wix is one of the market leaders. So, here are seven great reasons why we focus on Wix sites.
Wix is a WYSIWYG system (What You See Is What You Get). That means that if you want to change an image, add an event, add social media feeds, etc. the screen you view while editing looks the same as the live site. I will be happy to show you how to edit the site once it is built. Wix is the easiest way for you to maintain and update the website yourself once it’s been built.
2. Security updates
Any security improvements/patches are applied automatically by Wix, no coding is required, and you don’t need to hire anyone to do this for you. No ongoing maintenance costs.
The WIX CMS automatically includes Responsive Website Design (RWD) as standard, ensuring your site functions well and looks great on mobile devices.
Because you have an ongoing customer relationship with Wix there is an extensive support team who will help with any problems, their online help is actually very accurate and intuitive.
All of the apps and widgets that are available to plugin to your Wix site are designed to work seamlessly with the host, and they are regularly tested for security robustness.
6. User experience
There is no difference from the site visitor's point of view between Wix and any other platform such as WordPress, nor is there any difference in SEO.
So there's a quick list of just some of the reasons we love Wix, it's not exhaustive. We also love other platforms and will work with you to get the best results from the system you choose. Why not drop Balanced a line to find out more?
