Creating Websites for Customers? Here's What You'll Need
When it comes to building, maintaining, and promoting a website, creatives have a plethora of tools at their disposal. Finding the right tools, on the other hand, is a different storey. It is frequently a case of trial and error until you find tools that meet your company’s and clients’ needs.
In this article, we’ll look at four critical aspects of website development: creation, collaboration, performance, and security, as well as the tools that can help you bring your clients’ visions to life more efficiently.
Create sophisticated websites for any client.
Whether you work for a full-service agency or as a freelance designer, the goal is the same: to create creative, innovative websites that exceed client expectations. This necessitates the use of a platform that is completely customizable. Not only can you create at scale and accelerate the web development process with Wix, but you also get access to advanced design features, eye-catching visual elements, and cutting-edge video technology.
Editor X includes responsive CSS for complete design control. With flex and grid layouts, custom interactions, and full breakpoint control, you can define every element’s exact position and behaviour in any viewport.
“When we first started using Editor X, it felt like something we’d always wanted. Andrea Beaulieu, Creative Director and Founding Partner at Studio Linear, says, “I love it.”
Encourage client and team collaboration
If the pandemic taught businesses anything, it was the value of communication and collaboration. Many people find remote working difficult, but with more tools being developed to break down virtual barriers, designers, developers, and marketers are working together more successfully than ever before.
With Editor X’s Collaboration Suite, for example, teams can collaborate on the same site at the same time, thanks to tools like Concurrent Editing. Meanwhile, communication tools such as live commenting and Get Feedback assist in streamlining how you receive feedback from clients and colleagues.
Managing tasks is also easier, whether you’re working on 10 or 100 sites. Assign roles and permissions, track tasks and reminders, and keep track of updates all from a single platform.
Power great user experiences
We can’t discuss web design without mentioning performance. Users can now simply leave a website if it does not fully load within two to four seconds. Fortunately, the industry has prioritised performance, and Google’s CWV technology report provides useful insight into how different platforms compare.
Wix is assisting publishers in achieving high CWV scores. Wix handles site updates automatically and reformats images, converting them to WebP for faster downloads. It also develops tools in-house, which means it isn’t reliant on third-party developers for plug-ins, which can have a negative impact on performance.
Wix users can access the platform’s Site Speed dashboard to see how their site compares. It simplifies assessing site performance based on real user measurement, similar to Google tools PageSpeed Insights and Google Search Console.
Safeguard your client's websites and visitor data.
Many businesses prioritise site security, which is understandable given the threat of hacking, malware, and malicious software. Having complete faith in a platform allows you to concentrate on what you do best: creating powerful websites.
Every Wix site includes SSL certification, which enables encryption and ensures the proper authentication and verification checks are in place. On all eCommerce sites, transactions are encrypted with HTTPS traffic and supported by the TLS 1.2 protocol or higher, ensuring customers a secure checkout. Sites are also hosted on a global CDN, which helps to mitigate DDoS attacks.
Obtain a digital ecosystem on a single platform.
Finally, when creating your next website, it’s critical that your tools are up to the task. Platforms that include solutions for creation, business, and team management, as well as client management, allow you to work more efficiently, increase productivity, and grow faster.
Wix offers a complete digital ecosystem with advanced creation tools, secure hosting, and high performance. By becoming a member of the Wix Partner Program, you will gain access to exclusive agency benefits such as revenue share from the sites you build, dedicated support from a Partner Success Manager, custom solutions based on your clients’ needs, bespoke product training for your team, and more.
