Having been a WordPress designer for a decade and now a Wix website designer for the last few years, we have gone through a learning curve. After implementing numerous migrations and new website developments, we’ve confirmed that the Wix platform offers many advantages for both our team of designers and for our various client types. Here’s why: Wix is far more than just a website like WordPress. It's a secure, scalable solution with a marketing and business tool platform. Wix is the full monty if you will.

Wix Website Benefits
The biggest improvement for designers is that the Wix website platform includes a faster setup, has custom layout and animated design. Like WordPress, we can also offer custom coding for client special requests. The most notable feature is Wix’s enterprise security. Compared to the WordPress platform that is both open source and is prone to security issues, Wix has made website security their priority. For clients, they appreciate Wix’s secure hosting because it offers peace of mind and presents a maintenance free website which saves fixes and reduces costs. Our clients also like Wix’s simple user access for quick text and photo changes, lower set up and design costs and the convenience of an all in one platform.
Wix Ascend Marketing
Built into the Wix platform is Wix Ascend marketing tools. You can start with the FREE level that works for many small business owners or choose to upgrade to more robust versions for higher volume and feature levels. Marketing tools include blogging, social media posting, email marketing, automation, chat, video makers, logo designers, Facebook ads, analytics and much more.
Wix Business Tools
Wix business tools start with many FREE options and offer available integrated upgrades. These tools include customer relationship management, tasks and reminders, quotes and invoicing, online payments, domains, Google Workspace email, blended inboxes, toll free and business phone numbers plus many other tools.
