So you heard about Wix.com from friends/colleagues and you you’re itching to try the famous editor and create something beautiful. Problem is – you don’t really need a website. You don’t have a small business, you don’t want to sell anything, you don’t even have an agenda to push. What could possibly justify spending a few idle hours online?
Well, lots of things. True – Wix is a web publishing platform that is mainly geared towards website creation, but the amazing functionalities it has can be used to create any outstanding online document. Check out the following creative ideas and see how using Wix can help you easily fulfill creative tasks.
Create an Online CV
Job seekers can’t afford to lose work opportunities – and those sometime appear out of the blue. Say you’re in a restaurant, on a date, and you get a call asking you to send your CV NOW. Instead of running home to search for that Word document, you can simply give your caller the link to your online CV – how cool is that? You can send them a hard copy later, if they ask for one, but most chances are they’ll be satisfied with the link you sent them. Having an online CV shows your potential boss that you’re a resourceful and web savvy candidate who’s able to adapt to new technologies.
Tip: If you have a LinkedIn account, be sure to add it into your online CV (see how). This will help potential employers see more information about you: endorsements you received, shared connections you might have, etc. Also, by adding the LinkedIn app to your online CV, you’re actually enabling viewers to share your profile with other people. This increases your chances of getting your CV exposed to more potential employers.
Create an Online Event Invitation
An unforgettable event starts with an unforgettable invitation. A beautiful, interactive invitation can build up expectations, create anticipation, and give your guests something to talk about even before the event begins.
The Wix platform is any event organizer’s best friend. It lets you add ‘preview’ or teaser videos promoting the event, RSVP functionality, photos of the locale chosen for the event, a map with directions, galleries featuring guests’ photos so your guests get to know each other even before the event. Once the event is over, you can add a photo album with memorable moments and add a comments widget for your guests to share experiences.
Create an Online Presentation
There are plenty of decent tools to go around when it comes to creating an online presentation. But when it comes to creating a presentation with an arresting visual impact, Wix is King. The Wix platform comes with an amazing selection of beautiful ready-made templates with custom features that top any other platform in the market. Adding/importing visuals? – check. Embedding videos? – check. Photo galleries, animations and special effects? check, check, check. Wix templates cover a wide collection of topics so whether you’re creating a presentation about business trends in Southeast Asia or stats for this week’s NFL games, you will surely find what you’re looking for.
