Amazing imagery is becoming more and more essential when creating your online presence, which is why we’re happy to announce our new partnership with Wix.com, a leading cloud-based web development platform with over 56 million users. Wix users will now have access to millions of royalty-free images from Shutterstock’s Bigstock collection, without ever having to leave the Wix platform.
Wix offers hundreds of beautiful website templates that you can easily customize to create the best website for your biz. In the last two years alone, the use of images by Wix’s customers has increased by more than 150 percent. And, with Wix’s simple “drag and drop” system, no coding skills or web design experience are needed.
There are plenty of other ways Wix can help your brand or small business. Here are a few biggies:
LOOK GREAT ON MOBILE
Ever notice that when you’re looking at sites on your smartphone, some look a lot better than others? There are sites that easily adjust to the device you’re on (laptop, tablet, smartphone, etc), and there are others that don’t. This quality is known in the web design biz as “responsive design.” It’s critical for sites to adjust to the needs of the customer and device, and not the other way around. When you create your website or blog on Wix, they make sure your online presence looks right on any device.
CREATE AN ONLINE SHOP
If your small business is of the “tangible goods” variety, Wix’s website builder gives you the power to create your very own store your very own way. All you need to do is pick a template, add your products & collections, and boom – your site is live and you’re ready to sell, sell, sell.
With our image integration, you can now easily add professional imagery to your store. Creating a site for your fitness studio or gym? Simply search for “fitness” photos within the Bigstock Images area of Wix. You can search and find high-quality images for all of your site’s visual needs without ever having to leave the Wix editor.
You not only get to call the shots with template choice and the look of your online shop, but you can even choose how your customers can pay you. And, your online store will be mobile optimized, so people can shop for your goods while they’re on the go.
GET YOUR QUESTIONS ANSWERED
Even though no coding or programming skills are required to boost your biz on the Wix platform, you may have an occasional question or two. Well, the wizards of Wix have you covered. From their FAQ’s, to their forums, their answers to your site-building questions are only a few clicks away. Wix even offers online training videos, on their own YouTube channel, to walk you through all kinds of tasks, like the oh-so-appropriate How to Add a Video to Your Site. If you have questions on the Wix-Bigstock partnership specifically, you can visit our partnership support page at: http://www.bigstockphoto.com/wix.html.
So, whether you’re a small business, a freelance designer, a musician, or if you’re looking to create your wedding website, Wix can help. And, of course, you can now make those sites even cooler with high-quality images from Shutterstock’s Bigstock collection (see below for a glimpse).
Have a blast!
