Oh, Great . . . Another Designer Who Uses Wix

Updated: Nov 20, 2023

I know I am going to get some heat for this post, as many website developers do not like using Wix. Spoiler Alert: I love it, and I use it for building websites for all my clients.

What exactly is Wix?

Wix is a CMS (Content Management System) for websites. In English? This allows you to login to an admin panel to easily edit every aspect of your website.

I have been told not to use Wix

Wix gets some hate for not being the greatest option for businesses to build their websites on. Why? The main reason is once you build your site on Wix, you can't transfer it to another platform, if you decide Wix is not for you.

What do you think of Wordpress?

Wordpress is one of the most commonly used website platforms today and I used to use it for years before making the permanent change to Wix. If you're curious about why I would abandon one of the biggest CMS platforms used today - with a smile on my face - you can read my post: You Don't Use Wordpress? *Gasp!*

Wix Features I Love

Wix comes with some cool built-in features. If you want to see why I love this platform so much, take a look at some of my favourite features:


Want a blog (just like the one you are reading now?) Wix has a complete blog system to add to your website, where you can add your articles and posts. Visitors can search, share and comment on your posts.


How awesome would it be to take bookings online? If you have a service that requires your clients to book appointments, you will want this feature. Customers can schedule appointments and classes and pay online, while you manage the calendar for you and additional staff members.


Sell event tickets or collect RSVPs for weddings, with the ability to keep track of your guest list.


Create customized forms for people to fill out on your website and have automatically emailed to you, with the ability to add any fields you need.


Create a community on your website by allowing visitors to become members, join conversations and leave comments, upload videos and more.

Funding & Donations

Want something more personal on your website instead of listing on somewhere like GoFundMe? Accept donations from people that want to fund your project and raise money securely online.


Let guests book rooms, suites and cottages directly from your website. A great option for motels, inns and home owners who rent out their vacation properties.

Invoice and Quotes

Your Wix website comes with a free invoicing system that allows you send invoices, collect payments online and email quotes/estimates to customers.

Live Chat

Provide live chat customer service from your website by allowing visitors to click on a chat box and start chatting with you instantly.


Create a member-based website where visitors need to have an account to access private pages and content.


Are you a musician? Let your fans listen, share, buy and download your music.

Photo Gallery

Showcase your photos and videos with a photo gallery.


Accept online reservations by allowing people to book their day, time and party size.

Restaurant Orders

Accept delivery and pickup orders on your website and get paid online.

Social Media Feeds

Integrate any of your social media feeds on your website such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, YouTube and more . . .


Sell products, digital art, prints, services or downloads and track your orders with an eCommerce online store. Customers will be able to search for your products by typing in keywords or using the filter to search by size, colour, price, etc.


Stream and sell videos on your site.
