An Introduction to Wix
Wix is a powerful internet based web design solution ideal for those who wish to create websites with the minimum of technical complexity. Wix heralds the latest generation in web design software, a design tool that exist purely in ‘the cloud’, where the user has nothing to download and configure, and no tricky plugins or modules to setup and debug. From the get-go, Wix enables you to get your website up and running almost instantly, and offers you an ever growing range of themes, templates and drag-and-drop elements to make the construction of your website as enjoyable and as effortless as possible.
However, whilst the Wix platform is indeed powerful and versatile, basic web design principles still apply, and this course merges the best of those principles with practical hands-on experience in using the Wix platform. In addition to learning how the Wix platform works, and how to get the most out of it, you will also be shown the best way to plan and structure your website, using SEO to optimise your pages, and how content, keywords and imagery work together to excite, inspire and incite your visitors to engage with your products and services.
An ideal entry point into the world of web design, our Wix training course shows you how to get to grips with this powerful cloud based web design tool quickly, and with the minimum of fuss.
Thoroughly enjoyed the course. An exceptionally skilled and experienced tutor willing to share as much information needed and beyond. This has given me great confidence to creating and managing my own website and to understand the processes involved. Great, calm and positive environment, which gave me a great opportunity to explore ideas and what I want to achieve in the long run using the knowledge gained. Highly recommended course.
