What Is The Cost Of Building A Website…………Wix.com Review

Setting up your websitePeople find it hard to believe that you do not need much money to build a website in today’s marketplace.

Contrast to just a few years ago where businesses would spend thousands of dollars and even a personal website could run a few hundred.

There are many reasons for this, but one of the best is the number of great website building tools available to anyone to use. When you couple that with the fact you no longer have to do any HTML coding and you arrive at where we are today.

Anyone with a small budget and the willingness to work can put up their own website in record time with very little stress. This brings us to today’s article on one of the best website building tools on the market today.

Wix.com, Product Overview

Wix.com is one of the easiest website building tools that you can use to get your website up and running in a short amount of time. They sought out to create the most user-friendly website builder and they delivered.

The Good & the Bad

The Good:

1. Intuitive.

Wix.com absolutely nails the accessibility factor. A majority of their target market is likely looking for the easiest possible tool to create professional looking websites and their website building user interface completely delivers.

It is one of the easiest website tool builders that you will find on the marketplace. You do not need to have any prior knowledge of coding or website building to be able to use and navigate through their website builder interface which makes it a standout tool for those with limited coding experience and website creation knowledge.

2. Free and Affordable Options.

Another good thing about Wix.com is the fact that they do happen to offer a completely free option for those that are looking to create a professional looking website without investing much into it. However, if you are looking for advanced functionality and features along with your web builder, they have premium plans to suit you as well.

They offer affordable pricing for the value that they are able to deliver in the form of hundreds of business specific templates to choose from and other site building features and tools that can make your website look entirely professional.

3. Advanced Features and Scalability.

You will have the option to do so with Wix.com without having to change your website domain provider or web building tool.

You will even be able to utilize the built-in e-commerce capabilities if you decide to turn your website into an e-commerce store.

You will be able to link your website with different credit card processing companies including Square, Stripe, and even PayPal. This is a big bonus for those that are looking to start on a platform that they will be able to scale and grow with.

4. Customer Support.

You will be able to contact Wix.com’s customer support easily by submitting a support ticket or by calling them. Their customer support is good at responding quickly and getting problems sorted efficiently.

The Bad:

1. Lack Of Responsive Design.

One of the major cons associated with Wix itself is the fact that the websites don’t inherently utilize responsive designs. This means that the ranking factor associated with the latest algorithm updates will likely not be in your favor.

Google and other search engines know how important it is to rank websites that feature responsive and proper scaling designs for its growing mobile user segment. Therefore, your rankings might suffer as a direct result.

2. Pricing (Long Term).

building your brand for your businessWhile the pricing is reasonable if you are going to be planning on basing your website off of the Wix platform over the long haul the costs can and will add up.

While you will be getting affordable monthly plans, the costs can add up over time and you might wish you had chosen a less pricey platform in the future once you realized how much you have spent over the course of a year or a couple of years.

Who is Wix.com For?

Wix.com is primarily for those that are looking for a complete web builder that will allow them to create professional looking websites in a fraction of the time that you would expect. Also, it is for those that might have little to no experience with coding or web building.

  1. Hey there,

    Thanks for a great review. I am aware that Wix is a quick site-building platform but I wasn’t aware of who it is suitable for. From what I’m reading in your review, it seems like this is for newbies or people who want to process payments through their website. Does it support WordPress, and other domains (not just wix[dot]com)?

    Thanks

    Marios

    • Glad that you get some value here with my Wix Review. Overall I think it is a good website and as I noted there are some pitfalls.

      Wix works independently as a website builder, the same as WordPress. So it is impossible to support each other cause they are unique in their own way. But I have been working with WordPress from the beginning, so I have not seen any reason for me to change to Wix. Take care!

  2. About 2 years ago, my friend created a website using free Wix tools, it looked so beautiful until he needed a tool to use in making his website look better. He was asked to pay. I would not have any issue with Wix if the payment is onetime or annual payment of $80. Lots of people would be using, more people, more money.But accumulated payment of $11-29 per month is a great turn off for me. But they offer one of the best CMS currently, I was surprise when I saw what my friend created in 3 weeks.

    • Yes, I have seen some pretty looking websites fro Wix, but I still do not think they have the best CMS platform. And to get to that you have to pay for one of their six premium plans ranging from “Connect Domain” to “Business VIP”

      Thank you for your insight on this review. If you decide to use Wix for one of your websites, I would love to take a look. All the best.

  3. Hello Bishop! We have really gone far in terms of website design. Prior to now, getting a personal website used to be a difficult task. But not anymore. I love your review on Wix. Thanks for taking out your time to give the details of both the good and bad of At least with this information, a potential user will know what he is bargaining for.

    • Hey Gracen, thank you for the positive comment on my Wix Review. Yes, building a website is much easier today than before, and is one of the reasons more and more people are getting themselves into Online marketing.

      I haven’t use Wix but I have seen some websites that were built using their platform. I am not to keen about producing a fancy website, I just focus on providing quality content to my audience.

      A few of my Team members wanted to know about Wix that is the reason I decided to write a review so they can have an idea about this platform for building a website. Thank you for stopping by.

  4. I tried WIX and I didn’t like it, because that they will tell you one thing and will try to upgrade you to another price. They were not upfront with what you were getting for your money. The support is not good as other platforms that I am involved with. I give support a C rating and there website building tools are not as easy to use as other platforms on the  market.  You want to use a great platform come over to my website. 

    • Some people I heard that from and there are others that find it just awesome. And the cost did not matter to them whatsoever. Wix’s prices start at $5.00 monthly for the Connect Domain plan. Wix goes up to $35.00 a month if you opt for the Business VIP upgrade. 

      When creating an online store, Wix’s fees are at least $20.00 per month. An ad-free site costs $120.00 a year. There are also combo pricing as well. These combo comes with a domain name if you pick a yearly subscription. You can get .com, .org. .net, & .biz with a few other extensions.

      I would agree that the support is not all that great, so building a long term business with such risk can be scary and one can have second thoughts. WordPress works great for me and I use a company that provides hostings and monitors my websites daily. Thank you Wealthy Affiliate.

  5. Thank you so much for this nice review of Wix platform, I find it really helpful and nice and think the site will be very useful for me as I plan to build my new website later this month. I think the premium price is affordable and cool. I will try this out and share with you how it goes.

    • Glad that this Wix Review was helpful and that the premium cost is something that you feel comfortable with. In the past I have seen some pretty looking websites from Wix, I hope yours fall in that same category. Looking forward to seeing your website when it is done. Thank you and all the best.

  6. It’s great to see your review of Wix.I have used WordPress for years and before that I was an html guy creating my own sites and you are right, it used to cost a small fortune.I have often seen Wix advertised and wondered how it compared to WordPress so it’s good to see your review.It looks like a very interesting platform.There was one comment that caught my interest and it was the negative affect on ranking that Wix may have.What kind of ranking issues should we expect?Look forward to your reply.Tim

    • I can relate to using HTML s well but thank God I was a member of Chris Farrell membership back then, and he broke it down real simple.

      Back in the days, Blogger.com was the one I use to use and still have a few sites that still exist on that platform that still makes me money.

      I believe the ranking factor with Wix will depend on the websites. Although I have heard that WordPress will rank better, I am not too sure. I pay more attention to quality content with low competition keywords to focus on my rankings. 

      And if I received a few engagements by people coming back to my site, my rankings would be high whether it is Wix or WordPress. Just my take on this. Hope that helps!

  7. Nice review about Wix David!

    You are so right that it is a lot easier to build a website these days than it used to be and a lot less expensive!

    I often hear Wix mentioned as a good option for people to get started with their own site for free and reading through your review it certainly sounds like a decent choice for people.

    I didn’t realise that the free option was so limited though, and I was wondering if there are better options that you would recommend?

    Thanks in advance 🙂

    John

    • John,

      Yes, it is easier and affordable to build a website today, and Wix platform is definitely one of them. Wix does have a free option but they are lacking in responsive design which would make it difficult to rank on the search engines.

      I have worked with WordPress for a long time now and has found that this platform is much better and the search engines, like Google, favors them a lot. So I would definitely recommend for you and others, to begin with, WordPress. Hope that helps!
