Top 20 reasons to use Wix to build your website


In 2023 there is no doubt that your business needs a website if you are going to keep up with the competition. Whether you are a plumber, a florist or a doctor the chances are that your customers will expect you to have a professional looking website which tells them about you and your services. Of course if you operate a shop in your town then you definitely should take advantage of the massive marketplace that e commerce opens you up to or perhaps you are not currently working and you're thinking of starting blog to generate some cash.


There is every reason to create in 2023 and no good reasons why your business should not have one, so how do you go about creating a website for your business without breaking the bank. My recommendation is to use a website builder like Wix.com

My favourite alternatives to Wix (in order of how easy they are to use)

  1. Strikingly

  2. Google Sites

  4. Mobirise

  5. Wordpress


At Marshall Arts we have used Wix to build over 250 websites. Our reason for choosing Wix is for the incredible diversity of tools that Wix has available and the impeccable security standards that their websites conform to. Of course if you feel like you just want a simple website with few features that does what it needs to really quickly, then i recommend checking out Strikingly or Google Sites
