Where shall we start with this blog? I have now been using the WIX platform to build websites for over 3 years and boy has it come a long way in that time.
The recently launched Ascend for WIX is an all in one business solution accessible through the WIX website dashboard allowing you to:

Now I'm not saying that it's as technically sophisticated as some of the software programmes out there, but then it's not as difficult to implement, update or use. And, of course, the beauty is that it's all in one package, no opening and closing and connecting packages to one another. AND you'll be surprised at how cost effective it is.
So, if you're considering a new website, don't discount WIX until you've investigated it's capability and value for money.
