“Can I Do That With Wix?” The Definitive Wix Review


Can I Do That With Wix? The Definitive Wix Review. Wondering whether you should use Wix vs Squarespace, Wix vs Shopify, Wix vs Wordpress or any other website builder for website design? I’ve gotten tons of great "Can I Do That With Wix?" questions about the functionality of a Wix website, so let me answer those for you in this definitive Wix review. If you want a Wix review with pros and cons of using Wix for your web design to create a website fast, this Wix website tutorial is for you. Get ready to learn how to use Wix to its fullest extent!

In my last video, I talked about the 8 key things you need to know about using Wix as your website builder. Even so, you may still be on the fence about using Wix instead of Squarespace, Wordpress or Weebly. I get it.



Hi, I’m Marina, and I share simple tutorials for non-techie entrepreneurs as a non-techie entrepreneur. I’ve gotten tons of great "Can I Do That With Wix?" questions about the functionality of a Wix website, so let me answer those for you in this definitive Wix review.


1. “Can I blog with Wix?”

Yes, you can create and feed a blog with Wix (and customize individual elements to fit in with your site’s brand).


Adding a blog to your Wix website is literally just a click of a button away. You can then customize the blog feed and single post design settings, such as the date format, sharing options, button size, font, and much more, as you please.

Your sidebar is also 100% customizable. You can add your own images and text, or include blog elements that Wix automatically feeds, such as recent posts, featured posts, archive, categories, tag cloud, and ticker.

Within your blog manager, you have the option of scheduling posts in advance, saving a post as a draft, adding categories and tags, inserting images, galleries, video, GIFs, a divider and HTML, customizing the post’s URL, meta title, meta description, excerpt and title on mobile, adding related posts, selecting a specific post as featured, and even analyzing your insights so you can measure your blog’s performance.


2. “Can I create a landing page on Wix?”

Absolutely! You can create a landing page on Wix, and set it as your homepage to capture email subscribers as soon as they access your site, or as a regular page on your website that appears or doesn't appear on your site menu.


If you're promoting an event or webinar, are opening the doors to your online course, or want your site’s visitors to opt in to your free course or freebie, you'll definitely want to add a landing page as your site’s homepage. This will give them one of two choices: say yes and opt in to whatever you are promoting, or continue onto your site (usually your blog).

To create a landing page on Wix and set it as your homepage, all you have to do is:

Add a new page.

Change the layout so that the page has no header and footer.

Add a strip and change the background image.

Add text about whatever it is you're promoting.

Add two buttons - one to claim your offer, and another one to read the blog instead.

Set this page as your homepage.

Now whenever someone searches for your website, instead of landing on your homepage first, they'll see the landing page instead, and be tempted to opt in for your offer.


3. “Can I connect ConvertKit to Wix?”

Yes, you can add a ConvertKit form to your Wix site.

Although Wix doesn't provide a direct integration with ConvertKit in its App Market, you can add an opt-in form to your website using HTML code.

Get your form’s code from ConvertKit


Log in to your ConvertKit account.

Click on the form you wish to insert in your Wix website.

Click on 'Publish' and click on ‘HTML’.

Copy the code provided.

Insert your ConvertKit form in your Wix site


Access your Wix editor.

Click ‘Add’ from the left-hand side panel.

Click on ‘Embed Code’ and ‘Embed HTML’.

Once a gray square pops up on your screen, click ‘Enter Code’.

Paste the code you copied from ConvertKit, and press ‘Update’.

Resize the HTML code box so that your form fits properly.


4. “Can I sell digital (and physical) products on Wix?”

If you're on one of Wix’s Business plans, you can sell both digital and physical products from your Wix site.


As an online entrepreneur, you may wish to sell your eBook, printable, or digital album right from your Wix website, or even one of your physical products, such as a t-shirt, shoes or a skateboard. Although you'll be able to add an online store on any of Wix’s premium plans, you'll only be able to accept online orders from your customers if you're on a Wix Business plan.


Right from the Wix Stores panel, you can add your products (both individual and collections), connect a payment method so your buyers can pay you when they get to checkout, manage your shipping and tax rules, view your orders, add coupons and special offers, edit email notifications (e.g. order placed, digital product order, order shipped, and order ready for pickup), customize your policies and currency, and even manage your store on the go with the Wix App.


5. “Can I optimize my Wix website for SEO?”

Wix makes it super easy for beginners who have no clue how to optimize their site for search to do so.

One of the best features that Wix offers is the Wix SEO Wiz. It directs you through a series of questions with regard to your site’s general information and keywords, and provides you with a unique SEO plan.


This plan includes a checklist of all the important things that need to be optimized for best search results, and even offers you a step-by-step guide of the things you need to change, and why they matter, if for some reason they aren't optimal.


You can also customize each of your individual page’s SEO from the Wix Editor. It allows you to name your page for search engines, add a page description, hide or show a particular page in search results, edit the page URL, and even include specific keywords for that page.


Another thing Wix allows is to add image text. This is important since search engines can’t see images, but they can read Alt text. By customizing your image settings, you'll increase your page rank and boost your SEO.


6. “Can I add a members-only area to one of my Wix pages?”

Yes, you can create a members-only area or make any of your pages private on Wix.

Wix offers three privacy options to any of its pages: ‘No Restrictions’ (this page is public and open to all), ‘Password Protection’ (visitors need to enter a password to view this page), and ‘Members Only’ (visitors need to register as site members to see this page).

You can access these settings from the pages menu, clicking on the three dots next to the page name, and selecting ‘Permissions’.


If you click on ‘Password Protection’, Wix will prompt you to add the page’s password, and select the language of the login screen.


If you click on ‘Members Only’, Wix will prompt you to choose the language that registration is in. You'll also have the option of viewing or managing your list of site members, and editing the member signup settings.

You can allow anyone to become a member, or restrict it to only people you approve, toggle whether you prefer the new member signup or the existing member login to appear first, and allow or prohibit social login.

Remember to save and publish your site for these changes to go live.


7. “Can I add a customized announcement bar to the top of my Wix site?”

Yes, you can add an announcement bar to your site to boost clicks and opt-ins.


There are a number of ways you can add an announcement bar to the top of your Wix site: with a strip, a button, or with an app.

Strip

You can add a strip to the top of your header in a contrasting color, and link the text to your opt-in. The only thing with this is that it's not ‘sticky’ - when your visitor scrolls down the page, they won't be able to see the announcement bar, unless you ‘freeze’ the header.

Button

Since Wix is pure drag-and-drop, you can create and add a button to any part of your website. This means that you can add a button to your header that stands out and that promotes your offer. This way, you make it enticing and unmissable.

Apps

The third option is to add an app from the Wix Market to your site. The main disadvantage with those is that the free versions are limited, and so you may want to pay up if you're looking for more advanced features. For instance, the free version doesn't allow you to collect email subscribers from the announcement bar, and may include 'powered by' branding.
