Graphic Designer & Website Designer Tips

As a website designer and graphic designer, I love sharing great tips and tools that make designing easier. As part of my website design services, I train clients on how to update their websites or to do their own SEO (search engine optimization), so I post many of these tips for my clients to train them how to use Wix and other tools to keep their website up-to-date. Keeping websites current is the best way to get found and to keep people coming back to your website.

Wordpress to Wix Migration

A Wordpress to Wix migration is starting to become a reality, as Wix just released a Beta Wordpress Blog Import that allows you to import all your Wordpress blog posts into the new Wix blog. This is a game changer for Wordpress websites who have expansive blogs, as before you would have to manually recreate each post from a Wordpress blog into Wix – there was no way to import posts. But, Wix released a simple Wordpress Blog import feature to us Wix Beta testers to test. I did run into a problem with the import feature not recognizing my Wordpress blog as a Wordpress blog, but I reached out to the Wix Designer Support team and they were able to fix it (they said it had something to do with re

Wix Wordpress Blog Import

In May 2019, Wix just released a Beta Wordpress Blog Import so you can import blog posts from a Wordpress blog into the Wix blog! WOO HOO! Finally! As a Wix Website Designer, this has been on my wishlist ever since I started using Wix about 5-6 years ago. This has been a feature request for many years, and is now just released into Beta (I don't believe it has been released to the public yet, but it should be soon!) I just tested it with my Good Environmental News blog, which I've had for over 10 years – and it has hundreds of posts. I always wanted to bring it into Wix from Wordpress but never had the time to manually recreate all the posts. Well, now I was able to do that in a matter of mi

Wix SEO

Wix SEO is legit. I've heard lots of SEO companies and Advertising Agencies say that Wix isn't good at SEO, but I think they just haven't taken a close enough look at it. Wix has all the features you need to excel at SEO, including Page Title & Description meta tags, structured data ability, Google Analytics settings, and Verification settings so you can verify any Bing or Google account, as well as a blog, customizable URLs, and Alt Text on images. The most amazing thing about Wix SEO? Wix makes it EASY to use your website. My Website Design clients love when I design a website for them, and then train them how to easily make their own edits, add pages, add blog posts – plus, how they ca

Wix Popup Lightboxes - Editing & Quick Tips

As a Wix Website Designer, clients often request popups on their Wix websites. I always advise to use popups sparingly, as Google does penalize sites now for having overly obtrusive popups (like newsletter signups) that block the user from seeing the content. Sometimes, though, popups do come in handy for events or other temporary promotions. Here are my quick tips on how to edit Lightboxes in Wix in the video above. Also, not shown in the video – make sure to go into your Mobile View editor and edit the lightbox there as well to automatically show up, I believe by default the mobile lightboxes are NOT automatically set to popup so you need to turn that on if desired. I like to use popup
