Wix Templates – Making You Look Good

Wix templates are beautiful.  We don’t know what it is, but every time we look at them, the words that come into our minds include “professional”, “stylish”, or “polished”.

There are a lot of website builders out there, each with their strengths and weaknesses.  Although most of them do a pretty good job in allowing non-techies to build websites (without having to learn codes), a lot of them really feel incomplete, in that the templates that they offer you just aren’t professional enough.

Sure, you can populate the website with content – almost anyone can add pictures and text.  But the magic is really in the design, and this is where Wix templates really shine.

Over 510 Wix Templates for Free

It really doesn’t matter what type of website you are building, there are Wix templates for you.

With over 510 premium templates, Wix’s templates are uniquely designed for businesses, online shops, music, restaurants, hospitality, photography, portfolio, retail, fashion, creative, etc.

Wix goes even further and categorizes their templates into over 70 sub-industries.  They understand that not all business templates are applicable to all businesses.  After all, a website design for a lawyer should be different from a design for a plumber.  A website for a music rock band should be different from a website design for classical musicians.  A wedding photographer’s website should be different than a traveling photographer’s website.

They categorize their templates so this makes it easy for you to find a template that’s relevant to the type of website that you are building.

We found this function very helpful, especially being able to see what other Wix users are doing with their website design.

Let’s face it, it’s challenging to design a website from scratch.  So being able to get inspired by looking at other people’s websites, and knowing which Wix templates they are using, will be very helpful to get you started.

HTML5 Templates

Wix templates are HTML5-based templates, so they are using the most up-to-date codes to ensure that the designs are more SEO friendly and that they are also compatible with mobile devices (such as iPhones, iPads, and iPods).

This helps ensure that you are providing the best experiences for your visitors when they land on your website.   The last thing you want  is that your visitors see your website differently than how you are viewing it.  This is why Wix is a good website builder choice, as their templates are not only stylish and professional but also created using the latest technology.

Conclusion

If you want a great looking, stylish website design, Wix is definitely one of the strongest website builders available in the market today.  Wix templates are contemporary, professional, and can make your website look good.

With over 510 premium templates, categorized into over 70 different niches / industries for you, it will really help you find the best and most relevant design for your website.

Maybe just like you, at first we didn't have a darn clue about how to build a website, nevermind write half a line of code if our life depended on it! We wanted to build a website to start a side business, and felt overwhelmed, confused & scared about how to actually do it, which builder to use, and making wrong decisions. After years of trials & errors using different website builders, we're here to share our experiences with you.

    Hi Jeremy,

    Great stuff. Thank you.

    I have a few questions below:
    1. May I insert third party Survey Monkey App link to my wix website, or need to use wix built-in polls only?
    2. Can I put up Ad-Banner and Links on my wix website? It may be my sole source of income on web.
    3. May I know which template is good for forum, subsription and club membership at WIX?

    Many thanks for your help.

    Regards,
    Eddie

      Hi Eddie,

      1) I think they have a couple of other survey apps you can add to your Wix site, if you visit their App Market. So those are one click

      installations. I’m not 100% sure if Survey Monkey works well with Wix, but you might want to ask Survey Monkey’s support team directly. I’m assuming it’s just embedding some codes into

      your Wix site, and the way to do that is to use Wix’s HTML App (which allows you to insert external widget codes into the website).

      One huge advantage of using one of the survey apps in Wix’s App Market is that they are all configured to work perfectly in Wix, and the installation process is literally just a click.

      2) Yes you can.

      3) I’m not entirely sure as it really depends on which design you like the best. All of Wix’s templates allow you to drag and drop elements anywhere on the page, so it’s really flexible.

      So I’d suggest you find the design that you like the best and start from there!

      Hope this helps.

    Thanks for your helpful articles. I’m evaluating Website Builders and Wix looks pretty interesting. And I agree, most of the templates do look very professional. I have a question about some specific template functionality (or how I might be able to do this). One of the businesses I run provides training classes and I want to have the ability to manage class registrations within the website. So, I’d like users to see a list of upcoming classes and whether there are spaces available and allow users to register & pay for classes directly on the site. Do you know if any of the Wix templates provide anything like this? If not, are there any external apps that might provide something like this? Appreciate any help.

      Hi Chris,

      Wix’s App Market does have a free plugin where you can create a membership gateway so that only registered users can access certain parts of your website. We went over their App Market in this article here. When you visit their App Market, just type in “Member” and you will see the App.

      However, I haven’t seen a way to create updates on class availability with some of Wix’s tools. I’d love to know if they have something in their App Market that can handle this.
