Wix is known worldwide as a reliable, free website builder. This popularity is owed in part to the fact that Wix offers one of the most feature-rich website creation experiences available. With hundreds of designer templates available, business owners, bloggers and anyone looking to create a professional online presence will have ample possibilities to highlight their content without losing time on the more technical aspects of website design.
Use custom interactions to make an interactive site and add triggering events when visitors perform specific actions, like hovering, scrolling or clicking. Wire events to page elements—and with just a line of code—add animation effects, change SVG images, show or hide text, and collapse or expand entire sections of your site.
The embedded Wix Image Collections let you work with a fantastic gallery of professional stock images, while the Wix Pro Gallery allows you to enhance and edit images. You can display images and other content on a variety of slideshow galleries that increase user engagement and time spent on the site. Wix also allows you to make all images shareable on social media.
The App Market provides hundreds of third-party add-ons that can help you create a more sophisticated, streamlined and customized website. These include (but are not limited to) social media streams, newsletter signup forms, eCommerce and SEO tools, scheduling solutions, surveys, and image and video tools. Many of these are free, though others charge a small fee. The App Market is a fantastically complete and comprehensive resource that will satisfy even the most demanding entrepreneurs.
In 2016 Wix launched its most avant garde innovation, Artificial Design Intelligence (ADI). ADI is a brand new technology that’s revolutionizing the website building world by creating customized websites through an algorithm that’s based on users’ specific needs. ADI researches millions of sites across the web and then pools information into an incredibly refined, first class end product (which can be further edited with the standard Wix Editor). You’ll be amazed by the quality and accuracy of the pre-selected items ADI prepares for you based on your answers to a few questions.
You can add a background video to your website for no cost. Upload your own video through Wix videos - and you can even add your own music as well. Note that video backgrounds won’t display on the website’s mobile version.
Parallax scrolling is a web design effect that creates an immersive experience for viewers. The effect separates the site’s background and foreground, and as readers scroll down, the two sections move at different speeds creating a sensation of depth. Parallax scrolling is a unique way to integrate large, captivating images with text and can increase the time that users spend on your site.
Wix is constantly adding new features and designs. This is critical as you can trust that your website will keep up with all the latest trends and tech.
