Wix Use Cases and Deployment ScopeI use Wix for my personal design portfolio. My use of Wix has nothing to do with the company I work for. I use it as a display of the work I did in college and now heading into my professional career. I chose Wix because of its ability to customize and create a unique website while maintaining a fairly easy user interface.
Pros : For not having any coding/website building knowledge the site is easy to maneuver and understand what steps need to be taken to create your personal site.Wix provides a set templates to get you started but also gives you the option to customize beyond their templates to make your site stand out as much as you want it to.It can hold a lot of files and photos. I use the site as a personal project portfolio, so I'm used to uploading some large files and so far I've had no problem with loading them
Cons : I did struggle several times with image quality once I uploaded my photos. Sometimes certain things would get a little blurry/fuzzy when the file originally wasn't like that.Like I mentioned before, I have a lot of larger files on my site. Its easy to upload them, but sometimes it takes a while for them to load on the actual site which is a point of frustration when trying to present my portfolio.I wish there was more flexibility with text and images. Some layouts only allow a short line of text

Wix is a robust website builder with an impeccable reputation. Its most positive sides are ease of use, great templates selection and their official apps store. However, there are things that can be inconvenient. So, weigh the pros and cons for using this platform, read other Wix website builder reviews, or even test the platform yourself to get a better idea about this web service.

Overall, Wix is best suited for patient users who will take the time necessary to take advantage of everything it offers. Wix tries to give the users as many options as possible. Want to drag elements around your website like a power-point presentation? Go for it! Want to a bunch of different options for photo galleries? They’ll throw in as many as possible.

Wix may be one of the best known website builders, but it lacks a lot of functionality and design elements compared to direct competitors.

I’ve got to admit that Wix is one of the best and most reliable web-services I’ve ever used. Every step I took was smooth, reliable, and expertly guided. My final product was wonderful, and I couldn’t ask for a better website-designing experience than what Wix offered me.

Wix lets you easily build a good-looking site with all the commerce capabilities you could want, but you have to pay for any site stats, and its design freedom can result in less elegant-looking sites.

Wix is already a powerful design and promotional tool that users worldwide are using to build successful and marketable websites. Building a website should be as effortless as everything else the web now offers, and Wix is about giving you the freedom to design the website you want with great looking results. It's your personality, with a professional quality

Despite a couple problems areas (at least to me), the upshot is that if you're satisfied with the templates and plan on being committed to using Wix for a long time then you'll love it and it will make it very, very easy to maintain your website. With a fine selection of verynicely designed templates and a 5-star support system, you shouldn't really have much reason to leave.
We would recommend Wix to Artists and Musicians who want to present a powerful image through their website. Those looking for a website for commercial purposes will have to consider Flash's reduced searchability while those looking for something primarily practical or informative may simply not need the levels of complexity offered by Wix.
From IM Report Card
If you are looking for a simple way to build a nice website then Wix may be just the site to do it. Flash websites are the most professional looking but also the hardest to optimize for the search engines - but with Wix you will be able to have both. You will no longer have to choose between flash and optimization. Try out the service for free and see how you like the way it works and then decide if it is something you need to upgrade.
