WIX Free Online School For Website Design
DIY website creator Wix wants to make starting a career in web design as easy as it’s made building your own site.
Today, the company is launching WixEd, a free online education program that teaches Wix users everything they need to know to launch their own website design business.
The course consists of three parts: Wix Webmaster, which teaches web design with the tools Wix provides, and two business and marketing classes that cover all aspects of running a small business with intros to SEO, e-commerce, accounting, and photography.
A group of Wix instructors are on call to answer questions and review the homework that’s assigned after each section, including building a website for a real small business client.
“It’s not only about building websites, it’s about being the person who is responsible for the online presence of a small business,” says Yuval Finkelstein, who is running the WixEd program for Wix. “All of the strengths that online marketing had two years ago are now available for small business owners, they just need the professionals that can do it.”
