With Wix, learning to build a website requires nothing more than having access to the internet. Users can sign up for free website accounts from the company's homepage, and create unique websites either from scratch or with the help of a professionally-designed Flash website template. The Wix website builder is graphic-based, and design elements are added and edited through a drag-and-drop process. The software is ideal for the professional and affordable creation of online portfolios for artists and photographers.
The company recently launched a Wix Photography Blog, embracing the needs of one of Wix's largest niche communities. The blog provides opportunities for photographers to showcase their work, gain inspiration from fellow photographers and participate within a vibrant section of the Wix Community. Photographers can submit their websites for review by professional web designers for feedback. Posts also include tips and tutorials on how to make a website for one's photography portfolio using Wix, as well as general photography tips and photo-business advice. Comments by fellow blog members provide for an inspiring and social atmosphere of knowledge sharing, artistic exchange and even business connections.
Blog highlights include a "Photographer Zoom" category, where selected photographers have their work featured next to a questionnaire adapted from Inside the Actors Studio and links to the user's site. "Photo of the Day" posts will feature photographs sent by Wix users, with links to the artist's portfolio. These features provide excellent SEO opportunities for featured photographers, as they provide backlinks to users' portfolios.
Professional and wanna-be photographers alike can make a free photography website, and submit their work for review by in-house expert designers. Through a link on the blog, photographers can submit their work for review or to get featured through the "Photographer Zoom" or "Photo of the Day" posts. Guest bloggers are also welcome to contribute articles, and can apply by sending a link to their websites via the blog as well.
Editor-in-chief Talya Fuksman is enthusiastic about the possibilities this blog provides for Wix users: "We created Wix Photography as a place for photographers to gain inspiration and learn how to improve their sites, not just from Wix but also fellow photographers and designers. Additionally, the blog provides a platform for users to gain exposure to the online community and showcase their work on a much larger scale. It's a very exciting opportunity for newbies and seasoned pros alike, to drive more traffic to their sites and generate new leads."
