Web design

Most of the sites I design these days I create in Wix. Wix is a website builder, this makes it easy to edit and reasonably priced. A basic site is about $27 a month including many great business features including basic e-commerce and email auto replies. I can also design in Figma and pass off the files to developer if needed.

What's so great about Wix?

Wix, like Canva is both a template based design system AND a basic design app. If you love the template and replace the words and elements with what is there as closely as possible (amount of type, quality and type of images) you should be a happy camper. But, as anybody who has tried to paint happy little trees with Bob Ross can tell you, it doesn't always work out that way. I included some screenshots below of an actual Wix store template, minimal, clean, doable. Jump in there, it's free to try.

One of the best things about Wix is what it includes and the fact that you don't need to rely on outside services and apps. I have a lot of websites in Wix and one in Shopify, the one Shopify site requires the most babysitting. Every few months I get messages about apps and plugins that require updates or payment, Wix must update automatically because the only updates I hear about are yearly billing. And no, you do not need to pay yearly if you cannot afford it yet.  Starting a business has a lot of startup costs, sometimes you need to smaller payments, here's how you do it.
