Pros

I find it truly amazing how little work I need to put in to make an amazing website. You will have people think the website was made by a professional not by yourself in a short amount of time.
I found WIX through an advertisement that claimed that the software was easy to use to create a website for yourself and it's true. It's easy to use and also fun to use.
You will like Wix and I'm sure with a little time and effort and your creative juices flowing, you can create a spectacular website that is user friendly and your customers would appreciate.

Pros

How you have access to so many fantastic features for free, it's amazing how much you can do within Elementor and how beautiful sites made from it can be.
I love elementor as it's very easy to use. It's slick and sharp to use, with great features like copy and paste which makes it a breeze to use elements from other pages.
I started out using Visual Composer because that was the main visual builder that everyone was using. Over time Elementor plugin got better and better and their visual builder got better and better.

Cons

Their policies are ridiculous and customer service knowledge and etiquette are terrible. I have to share the latest bizarre policy I've run into.
Sometimes the apps cost money or you have limited amount of the app you can use before it costs money. This is frustrating when you start using it and then realize you are stuck.
The only problem that I have faced is that trying get to different pages of your website while in editing mode is confusing.

Cons

Trying to correct formatting errors or other problems is where elementor fails. You have to pay for premium to perform a lot of functions.
I hate how every company now wants you to pay monthly fees, and guess what we do it. I don't know why, but many people are used to this model now, including myself.
Sometimes there are nasty bugs. You have to do that site again.

Easy and fun to use, however Wix seems less professional, overall, than Wordpress

Reviewed 2 years ago

Overall, if I were a beginner, I'd use Wix more. Since I usually build sites in Wordpress with Elementor, I believe there's more power and ability available.

Pros

It's ease of use, versatility and design

Cons

At a certain point, functionality begins to trail Wordpress

Wix is ok for small and medium businesses but be aware - if you need custom solution, look elsewhere

Reviewed 2 years ago

Ok for a "quick and dirty" website that I know I will not need to touch much and do anything advance on it.

Pros

It's easy to get started - pick a template and start putting stuff. Wix handles all the technical (at least most of it) stuff in the background.

Cons

It's limited - yes, you can start editing in less than 5 min but Elementor on WordPress (out of the box) is more flexible and there are more options available.

Wix

A simple platform to develop complex websites

Reviewed 2 years ago

You can seamlessly create a fantastic site that will perfectly fit your business or blog in seconds by any means. Each of the resources and tools that you can integrate is considerably helpful, look amazing, and work perfectly on any screen size. Wix is fundamental to making web pages, largely due to the unlimited results that the modules give, completing the site.

Pros

I am genuinely happy with Wix. It is not difficult to make my site. I can also use the Wix app, which is great because it gives me a lot of grit in planning my site and making it look exactly how I want it to look. It's so natural to use, which is why I use it when I need to manage my company's blog or for personal use! It's really customizable too. You can do almost anything with Wix and the way you can change your point is amazing.

Cons

Making a great Wix site that contains a lot of features or enhancements is moderately brittle. I have to involve Elementor for the plan and Wix is for the activity part.

An easy to use Website Builder with everything you need to get started!

Reviewed 2 years ago
Pros

Wix is actually a really nice tool if you are just getting started building websites or just want to quickly design a landing page. As a no code tool it offers a good variety of possibilities and templates.

Cons

As Wix is really easy to use - there are some downfalls to it as you can not design a website 100% like you want to. In comparison to wordpress plugins like divi or elementor Wix just does not offer you the full variety of possbilities but is also easier to use.

overall it's been OK. I had many issues with their photo albums, the photography section has it's own support (which is great, Sarah rocks)

Pros

it's very easy to use. it makes nice websites.

Cons

it's slower when compared to WordPress with elementor or Oxygen (by a lot) - mind you, I' m using the original builder, not the new "Editor X". I wish the mobile website editor was better, it just lacks features. Today is a mobile-first world and it feels like Wix websites are made for the desktop.

Here's why you need to give Wix a try!

Reviewed 2 years ago
Pros

If you're trying to get into web development/design I highly recommend you to use Wix, it's intuitive and easy to use tools will help you to achieve really good looking and professional websites for your clients or even for your own business, I really think Wix is a great instrument to learn new skills and make some money at the same time.

Cons

In the past I've also used few other tools for web desing (Elementor pro, for example), so I can say that I have some experience in the field and for me using Wix was easy, however I feel like it wouldn't be the same for people with no experience, maybe you can keep working on the "easy" version so it can be a little bit more intuitive for beginners.

Wix - Drag and Drop for your Website Needs

Reviewed 3 years ago

Wix rocks when you need a website to be published half the time and half the effort.

Pros

The best selling point of Wix is its drag and drop feature. You can build a complete e-commerce website without any coding knowledge. Although limited compared to the usual Wordpress et al, Wix is enough to keep you running. It has lots of integrations to 3rd party apps too, so you can have best of both worlds. Their drag and drop feature is at par or even better than Elementor, as far as Wix is concerned. Very intuitive and the user experience is top-notch too. They have lots of templates to choose from if you don't want to start from scratch. It's being categorized to different subjects so you can find exactly what you need for your business.

Cons

Wix is limited to the features it offers. For those who would like flexibility, you might not be able to find it in Wix. But then again, Wix's market is for those who need drag and drop and without coding, so this is understandable.

My only site buldier after WIX

Reviewed a year ago

Great tool the start building and design your WordPress website specialy if you was regular working with WIX

Pros

1. Its a very organized and intuitive site builder, in my opinion, the best friend of WordPress sites, you can design almost everything without code. 2. you can start using it and receiving updates absolutely free, its possible to complete most of the missing features using another free third-party add-ons from the market.3. Very organized with the elements, and build to be responsive for each display: desktop, tablet,mobile, and its very easy to make your fit to each device.

Cons

1. some times you can't get exactly the look you want in the easy way like WIX, its not possible to drag the elements around because its build on grids and areas but after all its keep it always orgnize and responsive.

The New Gold Standard

We switched after using Wix and Adobe Muse and haven't looked back in several years. The amount of flexibility it offers while being on WordPress is incredible.

Pros

This software makes building custom websites extremely easy on WordPress platforms. Anything you can think of, Elementor has a solution for. We run a web design agency and have never had to tell a client we couldn't fulfill their order since we started using Elementor.

Cons

I wish premium features were free, but you gotta eat.

Using Elementor for a Digital Agency Start up

Reviewed 9 months ago

On the whole really impressed and would recommend it as a strong alternative to the likes of Wix and Squarespace especially given the power of the tool to do more with it

Pros

Elementor has helped me fill knowledge gaps as I start up a business providing web design for small businesses. It is easy and intuitive to learn. The tools are powerful and integrations are good. I am using mailchimp integration more

Cons

Initial integration with woocommerce seemed to limit my options for themes. This maybe because I am creating my first shop but I think could be improved. I.e I seem to not be able to use a standard header and am restricted to archive templates

Elementor

The best website builder I have ever used.

Reviewed 3 years ago

We used to use wix but we migrated to Wordpress and started using elementor. It has been the best thing we have done, we have very good results in all our websites with this tool.

Pros

This tool is one of my favorites, I use it every day to develop websites in our company, it is very easy to develop a web page using Elementor, in addition, it has multiple templates and predesigned blocks that we can easily use in the company for websites.

Cons

I think that the free Elementor option has many limitations, the sites that are developed with this option are very basic, I must combine this with other plugins to have good results. But the PRO version is very complete and allows you to use 100% of all the functionality.

My overall experience with Elementor was good. Good enough to make me switch platforms from Shopify to Elementor. The price is so fair a d features are pretty stellar too. Awesome website design platform.

Pros

The thing I like most about Elementor is that it is a plug in and therefore can be used on Shopify or wix and WordPress. It's also fairly easy to use and for $40... You can't really beat their offer

Cons

The thing I like least about Elementor is their customer support and options for running an online store are not that many or diverse. The landing pages are drab.

Ok Product, Terrible Service

Reviewed 2 years ago

I was a writer when I started using Elementor. I loved it at first. When I launched my own agency, my go-to was the Astra theme with Elementor. I don’t even know how many sites I built anymore. It really was a beautiful thing. Now I’m the in-house head of digital marketing for a company. My boss insisted I use another theme and host with Elementor. It’s been nothing but problems. Elements are glitchy,...

Pros

When it works, it makes WordPress sites as easy to work with as Wix, SquareSpace, or Weebly. My favorite theme (Astra) builds with Elementor, so I can build a very nice customized site in about a day despite not being a developer.

Cons

It’s buggy. Elements, like the typing/ animated text were released even though they don’t display properly. They were left buggy for forever (many months). I’m not even sure they’re working right now. Oftentimes, things don’t display right on mobile either. Their latest update broke my site. I didn’t realize it was Elementor’s fault, so I left updates on. Two weeks later, it broke my site again. Pair that with their shoddy hosting that’s often down and crummy tech support/ customer service and it’s a recipe for disaster. I wasted so much time going between Elementor and the theme’s developer with each blaming the other for things not working during the build. I don’t know how many things i scrapped or how many times I changed direction because things just weren’t working right.

Thoroughly impressed!

Pros

As I progressed from a simple website for my business through Wix to a more refined and professional website through WordPress, I stumbled across Elementor and am so happy I did! The tools made so readily available through Elementor give my website the look of a professional developer, without years of experience in graphic design.

Cons

At little difficult to navigate and program in some of the tools, but with the help of YouTube tutorials, which there are plenty of, I could not be happier with the end result.

It's worth the learning curve!

Reviewed 7 months ago

The first week, I was incredibly frustrated because I was expecting a drag-and-drop experience similar to Wix or Squarespace. I did not find Elementor to be very intuitive. HOWEVER. Once I sat down and watched some tutorials and figured out how to navigate the software, I fell in love! I don't think I'll ever use another site builder!

Pros

I have precise control over my website I have the flexibility to code my own content when I need to It manages my content beautifully My load times are MUCH better than on my previous site Managing the theme is quick and easy

Cons

There's a definite learning curve in the beginning, but once I figured out how it works, it was pretty smooth sailing
