wix mobile site builder reviewsWith an estimated 80 million Smartphones being used in the United States, online businesses can no longer afford the opportunities presented to them by mobile customers. A problem that business owners face is that regular websites are not ‘mobile friendly’. However, you can utilize the services of companies like Wix who are now offering a specific mobile site builder. Wix is already known for its flash websites but was suffering in the marketplace because Apple does not support Flash on its iPhone or iPad. As a result, Wix created a mobile website builder which will help your business become accessible to Smartphone users.

Pricing
When you create a website with Wix, you get a number of basic services free but have to pay extra for additional features. This is also the case with their mobile website builder which allows you to design a mobile site for and publish it on a Wix.com address for free. However, everything else costs extra and there are four separate packages.

  • Mobile Ads Free: This costs $4.95 a month or $49 a year. You get free Wix ads, click-to-call and click-to-text, 500MB of storage and 500MB of bandwidth.
  • Mobile Domain: This is $5.95 a month or $59 a year. This allows you to connect to your own domain and Google Analytics but restricts you to the same storage and bandwidth as with the cheaper package which is strange.
  • Mobile Combo: You can have this for $9.90 a month or $99 a year. The annual package comes with a free domain and a $75 voucher. You get 2.5GB storage and 1GB bandwidth.
  • Mobile Unlimited: The most expensive Wix mobile site builder package costs you $14.90 a month or $149 a year. The annual package offers you a free domain and a $125 voucher. The storage limit is 2.5GB but you do receive unlimited bandwidth.

Features
This new innovation from Wix enables you to create content that can be seen on iPads, iPhones and all other forms of Smartphones. There are a number of sample templates and easy to use editing tools which help you create a basic site without paying a cent. You will be able to build several pages including a home page and photo galleries. It allows you to view all changes as you edit which prevents you from making mistakes and having to continually return to the editing screen. You can create a website in a few minutes such is the simplicity which is by far its best feature. The click-to-call and click-to-text buttons are essential for mobile users and are included in the premium packages.

Verdict
The Wix Mobile Site Builder is a good option for smaller businesses because of the relatively low cost of the premium packages. The fact that it is Flash-based may turn off some companies but overall, this is an excellent site builder that takes simple website creation to the next level.
