hello it's your youtuber here computer MDM gilbert and for those of you who do not know me one i'm a WIC certified trainer so Wix has certified me to go out and teach people like yourselves about the Wix platform and how to build in it as I do Wix tutorials here on this YouTube channel a secondly I'm Wix design expert so I'm part of Wix design experts program which just means I engrained myself I'm on the way Serena and I love just engrained myself without Wix community and then three one of the most fun for me is that I am running my own Wix web design agency which is an awesome experience and I love just being able to help people build their websites from start to finish or even pick up where they left off and just seeing their expression that awesome expression as soon as their website is complete there's nothing more rewarding than seeing that but let's focus on today's video which happens to land now on December 30th 2017 which means tomorrow night is neut well tomorrow is New Year's Eve and then as soon as that clock strikes 12:00 in it's New Years Day tomorrow night or technically New Year's Day we are heading into 2018 now heading into 2018 what does that mean well one we want to set some goals right we want to have a flourish 2018 I want you to all have a successful in happy 2018 that's first things first so before we hop into everything a quick Happy New Year for me here at computer and be of Guilbert your host Michael struk but we have a couple things that go on one going into a new year we have a lot of people start new businesses maybe decide to rebrand themselves and take that leap into Web Design some people have never even taken that leap so a lot of people decide to do that but we have a couple different things that happen whether that is starting your new business or rebranding yourself but either way you need a successful website 2018 if 2017 wasn't that your digital which it was but 2018 only getting more advanced from here so to have a proper website is an understatement you need a fantastic website nowadays that really converts and draws attention in order to be successful online so when doing that you need to choose the right web design platform to build on and that's what I'm going to teach you today I'm gonna teach you one why Wix is so amazing in my opinion yes I know it may seem like I'm a little bit biased but I promise you I'm not I know the pros and cons and I'll mention them throughout the video and two I'm gonna show you why Wix is so incredible at doing what they do best so when you're looking for a web design platform I'm gonna cover five areas these are the five most important areas you should cover when looking for that platform so first I'm gonna start with functionality you you obviously are looking for features functionality what the platform is able to do what you're able to accomplish and though that's a pretty basic button one of the most important aspects of looking for a platform – we're gonna focus on cost when you're building a website you have to take in all these different costs into consideration one are you gonna hire a web design agency to help you out if so you got to look at your costs there talk to the agency as I said I am an agency if you guys would like to talk to me about cost feel free to you have to look at within that cost what it's what the cost is gonna be to buy your domain name your hosting all of that so you have to take this cost into consideration 3 you want to look at their community what does the community look like is it a good community is it filled with good people helpful people that are always willing to lend you a hand or give you tips give you tricks all of this you want to look at the community surrounding the platform if they've got a good community likely they've got a good platform for you want to look at support is there support good do they have lots of outlets of support whether that be their direct of support there's help center or people like myself that can help you outside of witches in-house support and then five is ease of use you want a platform that's easy to use yet does everything you want it to do but ultimately ultimately when you're looking for a platform you want to answer the question will this platform enabled me to get to my desired results and if the answer is yes and all these boxes are checked then this is the platform for you so let me go into it and explain to you these five different areas and then you determine will this platform get me my desired results and another little side note to that one will this platform give me my desired results in a timely manner because I know a lot of you would like to get this stuff done quick and Wix dozen able that but let's hop into it excuse me so one functionality first things first this is the Wix dashboard whenever you create a new website you get a dashboard that looks just like this for every website you create you have the website over here and then these are your tiles this is where all the apps you have on your website are located it's easy to access you can see you can just go into all these apps right here instead of going into the editor and going into the app that way also it makes it quick and easy to use next is you can manage your website this is where all of your managing happens a couple cool things about Wix as far as functionality goes is you have the ability to duplicate your websites you can even transfer your website ownership excuse me so what that means is if you build a website say you're a web designer you can then transfer that website you built to your client or maybe you're working for your company and they asked you to build their website and you're working within your company you could then transfer the website over to your owner or your boss's Wix account that's a nice little functionality right there you have all these different asset since domain SEO favicon language business info social analytics roles and permissions this is another cool one roles and permissions so you could actually add contributors to your website and what that means is you put in their Wix email and then you can choose the role they have so they could either be an admin where they have access to everything in your website besides payment info and important business info but this means they could edit the website they could publish the website all of that – you see you have a back office manager this means they have access to Wix home and they can manage the site settings and apps but they can't edit the site excuse you have a little bug in my throat three you have the blog editor and blog writer so you could actually make a blog editors and writers so you can add positions to your blog so that's a nice little feature right there so these are your basic back office back in which web design functionalities now there's a lot of them in here and I'm not going to get into all of them but what I do want to focus on is actually editing your website and all the functions you get with that so let me first go into here excuse me well so when we come into here this is where you pick your type of template you want Wix is simply it made it nice to just come in here and choose whatever industry you're in and it'll populate templates based off your industry I'm gonna click other for a reason so when we come in here you can then choose two options now this is where it gets kind of cool a Wix Adi is actually a Wix artificial design intelligence it's an excellent platform for you to just quickly put together a website although there's not as much customization and it does all the work for you you don't have all the customization as you do any editor so it's nice if you just want to throw together a quick simple website that looks very good but it really has no customization on the other hand create a website yourself with the editor this is what I work in this is my bread and butter right here and this is what you have all the customization to you control everything from start to finish so we're gonna click choose a template once we do that Wix has a template base of hundreds of templates if not thousands of templates and you could come in here and choose the one you like best now the thing I want to make certain to you is that it really doesn't matter what template you choose now I do recommend that you choose a template especially if you're just starting out that's aimed toward your industry that's just going to be easy to change the verbage ginge the pictures and all of that although truthfully no matter what template you start with you have the ability to transform that template into anything you want excuse me so you could come over here to blake blank templates you could start from scratch this is a start from scratch template and then as you into this this may seem a little scary there's nothing to work with you literally have a blank template but it's such an exciting process and maybe this is me as a web designer but you could take this blank template and turn it into something amazing you can turn it into something that you've never seen before or you could turn it into a unique experience in this template can transform into something like this this is my website this is which my website com and by the way guys just so you know you can get on this email list I do weekly which tips it's very helpful it really helps people out but you could take that blank template and you could turn it into a website that's very simple and easy to use but just like this and we went from a blank template to a full website it's very cool it's very easy to use excuse me Wow I apologize so as far as functionality goes we have different apps we can add we have different editions we could add videos music social buttons interactive page boxes strip shapes blogs online stores we can add a myriad of things but one of the newest features that Wix just released that really complements this editor and takes it to a whole new level is Wix code so with which code this is what they said its creation without limits and it's true sophisticated technology advanced web applications so Wix code now enables you to write your own custom JavaScript now wait I know I might've lost you there it enables you to have the ability to write your own custom JavaScript to truly make anything happen in your website although if you're not a big fan of writing code or you don't know how to write code Wix has taken all of your main awesome cool backend technology like creating databases custom user input forums dynamic pages categorized list item pages profiles creating like social media type profiles they've taken all that and made it possible with just simple buttons drag and drop and click and which code enables you to do all that you can create like I said databases you can create custom user input forms this is a little example here of what you can make happen with which code it's so easy to use it's so simple and it's creation without limits that is one of the huge functionalities I really wanted to highlight here in the Wix editor other than that I mean the Wix editor is awesome to use some of your main key apps I'll come in here this is the Wix app market place where they have thousands of apps in here but some of the main apps I wanted to show you are made by Wix and if we view them you can add you can see just by this some of the things you could add if you're a photographer you could add the Wix pro gallery if you're looking to build a community you could add a forum if you're looking to sell tickets to an event excuse me you can add Wix events if you're looking at create a stunning blog you can add which blog if you want to be able to chat with your visitors you get a twitch chat if you're looking to create an e-commerce site or an online store you could use which stores if you're looking to book people for your private events consulting calls group events may be a fitness classes you could use which bookings you could take payments straight online if you're an artist a band or a music producer you could use Wix music to sell your music and reach a big audience through the different distribution networks like Spotify iTunes all those if you're a restaurant you could accept orders online with Wix restaurant orders you can use Wix restaurant menus to create a stunning menu if you're looking to create a different video series or an online video course or your YouTube channel you could use Wix video and you can showcase your videos and even charge a monthly subscription fee to watch some of your content if you're a hotel looking to start booking rooms you could add which hotels you could create a multilingual website in which guys these are just some of the Wix apps that you can create you can go to my youtube channel and check out all the different Wix apps and I'm going to be starting a new series on the Wix community channel as I just got added to the YouTube Council for the Wix community channel that you can go ahead and look at all the different Wix apps and functionalities that you're able to do but ultimately you have complete freedom the Wix functionality is endless you have complete freedom over the design and that is one of the main things I wanted to hammer in here for you next you're looking at cost so what does it cost so this is what it costs right here these are the premium plans and Wix you can see you can just connect your domain this is the most basic one for five dollars a month your combo plan you could also you know connect your domain plus you get a free domain name and you remove the Wix at $10 a month the most popular is the unlimited plan where you can connect your domain get a free domain name move wicks add and get a few cool apps like your site booster for and build their apps this is a great plan however if you're looking to accept payments online or a certain online store or do anything as well involving accepting payments you're gonna need the e-commerce plan which also gets your free domain or connecting your current domain and you also get all these different plans but you get the online store and then obviously your VIP first priority support is $25 a month now here's the cool thing if you guys decided to work with me I have the ability to give you by working with me half off any of these plans so if you decide you'd like to use my web design agency to help build your website well we just took this fourteen and took it down to seven or this seventeen and you know took it down to about 850 so it's very convenient it's very cost effective and it's it's definitely one of the most affordable web design platforms out there no doubt in my mind so just take a look at these the next thing you want to look at is the community so you want to know if they have a good community of people obviously that's just make sense so one I'd like to say that I am part of the Wix community I love the whit's community I have created my own rich community when you guys subscribe to that email list or subscribe to me here on YouTube you are joining my community and I have an excellent community you can see if you come in here to resources and we go to community I have a Wix forum right here and this is where a lot of my community asks questions or or joins me and this is just my little Wix family right here now there's also a much more broad Wix community we have different little groups through in that so I'm part of the Wix design experts that's one little community right there but ultimately this is a whole Wix family and one of the main things that Wix focuses on building is a strong helpful community so I can tell you by being ingrained in it that they do a fantastic job of doing that and there are so many ways to get involved whether you decide to get involved with me over here on my website by signing up for these weekly wicks tips or you decide to go in start using Wix and start joining some of the other communities within which it doesn't matter either way you get access to an excellent community guys next on our list we have support you want a web design platform that's got a great support so I'll be honest with you sometimes like the Wix phone support is not the greatest and I'm gonna tell you that right now it's not that they don't have good people on the phone it's that their phone support is kind of hard to access however what they do have let me show you is it have a Help Center this Help Center is loaded with anything you could pretty much think of for your which website you can search it right here you can see all the different sections of help center material that they have and you could come in here and usually find an answer to most things by just searching this Help Center although the other thing you have to look at is support outside of in-house which like people like me I'm here to support you I'm a witch design expert which means you can come to me for support I can pretty much answer all of your questions sometimes I need to do a little research myself but primarily I can answer all of your questions and there are a lot of people just like me out there in the Wix community that you can ask for support so to answer the support question although their phone support is a little limited they have a great help center right here and then they have an even better outside community of people that can help you and support you when building your website so that answers the support for you and lastly is ease of use ease of use is an is an important thing so let me explain to you that which is possibly one of the easiest web design platforms to use let me explain why let's just say I want to add some text I come in here I go to text I click site title BAM I brought it in I drag and drop wherever I want I control where this goes let's just say I want to add a picture I come in here I go to image I come into my images and let's just see uh-oh there's a cool image of myself BAM I bring an image in just like that now I'm not showing you any design as far as this goes I'm not creating an actual design but just like that oh hey you know what um I want to add a witch forum to my website I come in here click Add to site BAM the witch forum was added to my page but now wait a second I want the forum to look a little different this isn't how I want it I click settings ah oh wow would you look at that all the settings in here control a whole forum it's easy to come in here and just change the settings I want different categories ok I could edit this category BAM just like that I could change the title I can change the description I can change the image I can change the text colors just like that that's what I'm trying to show you guys it is so simple to drag-and-drop and create your website and wit now trust me I understand some of you may be looking for more functionalities and adding some text in a picture I understand that and that's where people like myself or my educational tutorial videos on YouTube come into play but which is so simple to use so guys I hope this video offers you a good insight into what Wix is capable of doing and before I let you go I wanted to show you a few websites that I've you know helped associate with or helped build in which that they've loved the platform one is obviously my own website I love the platform I built this
