Wix is a solid website builder option. It will get everything you need to get done for a great website building experience.

Ready for the fun part? Here’s how to make a website with Wix…

1. Create a Wix account

First you need to register for an account then yo will be able to create your Wix Website. Open the Wix homepage and select Get Started. Enter your email address and create an account.

The sign up process is easy. Answer a few short questions about your new website and then you are complete. Next, you will be asked whether you want to create a website within the Wix Editor or let the Wix ADI tool design a website for you…

2. Let Wix ADI create a website for you

Although Wix’s artificial intelligence designer (ADI) is a useful tool, its design and customization options are limited compared to the Wix templates and editor. Therefore, if you have a basic understanding of website design (and I mean basic), you can click here to skip ahead to Step 3 and choose your own template.

However, if you are totally new to building a website, then Wix ADI may be a good option for you.

After selecting Start Now, the tool will then ask you a few questions about your new project. Make sure you carefully choose the design options that most appeal to you as the ADI tool will design a website based on your answers.

Your new website will then open within the ADI Editor.

Mastering the ADI editor

The ADI Editor is easy to navigate. But here are just a few pointers to get you started…

  • Elements – Click on an element to customize it. The settings for a selected element will appear in the left-hand menu bar where you can then make any necessary alterations. Options include changing the images, writing text, adding buttons, and more.

  • Add a Page – Select Pages > Add Page from the top menu bar. Then select from a range of new page types and pre-made page templates.

  • Design – Click on Design in the top menu to change your website’s theme and layout, or alter global colors, fonts, and more.

However, if you want more control over your website, you’ll be better off skipping the ADI and selecting your own template (which is my recommended method).

3. Choose a Wix website template

To get started with the Wix Editor, select Choose a Template.

To find designs that match your site, you can filter the templates by category, and you can also View each template in demo mode. Once you have found a template that fits with your project, select Edit.
