Wix Introduces its Official Designer Directory
September 11, 2009 (PRLEAP.COM) Technology NewsNew York, NY, 09/11/2009 - Wix has recently introduced the designer directory. This directory allows Wix users to connect with a network of professional web designers, available for hire, who are experienced in creating various types of websites using Wix's intuitive website builder at a price point that is significantly lower than on other platforms.
One of Wix's greatest strengths is the fact that no technical knowledge is necessary in order to create free professional - looking websites. For the most part, all it takes is a little creativity and Wix users are on their way to creating highly visual, cutting edge design websites. Others prefer to leave designing to designers or would like to have their Wix site 'touched up'.
The professional designers currently included in the directory were chosen for their talent, skill and experience. Creating, designing and launching a website via the Wix designer Directory costs a fraction of the price of working with independent designers who need to create most of the visual elements and behaviors from scratch.
Wix.com provides access to a free Flash website builder. "Our product was designed keeping non-developers and non-designers in mind. The goal is to make it possible for new users to jump in and start creating right away. No technical skills are necessary in order to make a website. Anyone with a little imagination and creativity can make a website in no time, it's just that simple, but we also wanted to offer our users the option of leaving the web design work to professionals.
Introducing our designer directory is a great boost" Said Allon Bloch, Co-CEO of Wix.
Creating your own website and hosting it with Wix is free. Upgrade benefits such as unlimited bandwidth, 2.5 GB of storage and the recently introduced commerce option costs much less than what these components would normally run for individually. Wix also offers upgrade packages with benefits such as using a personal domain name, embedded Google analytics and extra storage for users who need a little more control.
Wix is working steadily working towards providing a complete solution when it comes to web design.
In addition to giving businesses access to a high power Flash website builder and editor, Wix is also making significant updates to the quality of the images and videos shown on their user's websites. One of their key strengths is the balance they've created, between ease of use and high quality design elements.
