What Is Wix?

Wix is an online website building platform. Wix allows for easy website creation and has many apps that you can install on your website like a contact us form or a photo gallery. The only two drawbacks with Wix are:

  1. You are limited to the apps that they create and many of them require a monthly fee to use.
  2. Wix isn’t the best for you if you are concerned about search engine optimization.

How Complicated Is Wix?

Wix is extremely easy to use. If you don’t have any website skills, this will allow you to make changes easily to your website. Wix uses a “drag and drop” editor so that you can edit a website without having to know how to code.

Is Wix The Right Choice For Me?

If you are a small business, don’t have much website knowledge, and are looking to have a simple website at an affordable price then Wix might be a good choice for you. However, you will be missing out on very important search engine optimization features since Wix doesn’t do well in this area. For example, Wix does not allow you to edit your robots.txt file and their hosting plans don’t perform very well. Wix does not support the installation of JavaScript snippets like CallRail, Call Tracking Metrics and Google Tag Manager.

There is a workaround to tracking contact form submissions on Wix. Some Wix third-party contact form apps, such as 123FormBuilder, will allow you to redirect visitors to another page after the form is submitted. You can then redirect users to a thank you page when they submit a contact form. Then you can track how many people made it to this thank you page in Google Analytics. As of now, there is no way to track phone calls using Wix.
