How To Change Your Wix Template
Wix is among the most popular platform for creating websites. It is easy to use even for people with zero experience in the field, which is why so many people use it to create their websites.
There are many features and options you can use to perfect your website and this article will explain everything you need to know to change your Wix template. A few additional tips on how to create your website are also included.
Before You Select the Template…
Wix is a great platform because it makes the process of creating a website fun and easy enough for complete beginners. Even so, there are some general guidelines you should stick to if you want to create a stylish website. Here are some questions you have to answer before choosing a Wix template.
What Is Your Style?
What do you want your website to look like? You have to put a lot of details into consideration before you can figure that out. Think about the colors, fonts, and general design you want. Also, keep in mind that it has to compliment your services, business or brand. The good thing about Wix is that it offers many different pre-designed templates that can save you time and point you into the right direction.
What Is Your Website About?
The story behind your website makes all the difference. Is it a blog site or a site where you share your photos and other art? Is it a business website where you sell products or something entirely different? It’s crucial that you define the purpose of your website before you start the creation process.
What Is Your Brand About?
You have to send the right message to your website’s visitors. You have to design your website, so it compliments your brand. Some products demand simplicity and minimalist design, while others work better with a lot of colors and a playful look. Tune in your brand with your layout, and it should work out just fine.
How Much Time Do You Have?
If you’re in a hurry and you want to get your website online as soon as possible, you can choose a template with all the features you need. On the other hand, if time is not an issue, you can select a minimalist or blank template and build it from the ground up.
Choosing the Right Template
You can easily select any template and edit it however you like. The process goes like this:
- Open Wix and open the “Templates” page.
- Hover with mouse over the template you want.
- Preview the template by clicking “View.”
- Click “Edit” to start making changes.
You can use any template and build your website for free. If you upgrade to a Premium Plan, you will get more advanced features with even more options.
Switching an Edited Template
It’s essential that you choose your template right the first time because you won’t be able to switch templates of a Wix website you’ve created already. When you add content to a template, you can’t change it any longer. Another thing to keep in mind is that you can’t combine two templates on one website. So, if you don’t like the template you used the first time, you will have to rebuild the entire website from scratch.
What you can do is transfer your created website to a premium plan and domain at any time. You can also use ADI (Artificial Design Intelligence) at any point to make slight changes after creating the site. You can make color changes, use different fonts, and add animations to your website.
Benefits of Using ADI
ADI is the newest smart feature on Wix, and it is designed to break down the website creation process into six steps. You will be able to put a professional-looking business site together without any previous experience in no time at all. The process looks like this:
- Select the style of your website. Choose between e-commerce, blog, or other.
- Add the name and location of your business.
- ADI will then scan the internet, including social media, to find and pull the correct information into a suggested design you can change further.
- You can then select the style. ADI bases the site’s style on the colors of your logo.
- ADI will show you the result. You will get another chance to review the work so far and make adjustments where needed.
- Follow the smart assistant roadmap to finish the process and post your website online.
The Possibilities Are Endless
Wix is one of the smoothest website creation platforms out there. There are many templates and features to choose from, and ADI will do most of the work for you. With a little creativity, you will be able to create a site you can be proud of.
