Recently, I had a family member ask me about using wix.com for their business website. For those who don’t know, Wix is a free website builder that makes it really easy for people without a ton of web design experience to create a website. Since I was curious as well, I decided to give Wix a try.
How Wix Works
The general idea is that you sign up for an account, pick a template, and then customize the template to fit your needs. Based on a quick count, it appeared that they had well over 500 free templates. Many of the templates were geared towards a specific type of site. For example, they had templates for restaurants, food blogs, graphic designer portfolios, clothing, and much more.
