My name is Suzette and I am the founder of Keep Modern, an interior design studio located in Manhattan, NY. I created my first website and blog in 2010 using iWeb to simply share photos with family and friends while living abroad. But as technology changed and tablets were introduced, the user experience also changed and I quickly realized that to create a professional site for my business, I would have to look elsewhere.
In early 2012 when I was ready to launch my business I went on the search for a new website builder, one that would support mobile devices and allow me to update my site from anywhere, any time. With the website being the most important marketing tool I have, I set a modest budget and hired a professional Web Designer, but after several weeks of coding and editing my excitement started to fade. I missed the process of doing it myself and what made the experience frustrating was knowing the design was my own, but I just lacked the technical skills needed to make the site function well. Then one night as I surfed the web I stumbled upon Wix and it changed my life.
As a designer I not only need to showcase my work, but I need to have access to updating it as often as I want. After a quick tutorial, I immediately began designing a site for my new business and I suddenly felt like I had my own in-house world class web support team for a fraction of the cost of hiring someone to do it for me. I was able focus on the design, knowing Wix was there to take care of the rest. I stayed up that entire first night designing, testing and editing my site. After two short days my site went live – my most exciting moment was showing it to a friend on his iPad.
Thank you Wix for providing a platform where I can have fun promoting my new business. You made building and updating the most important marketing tool I have so easy and so much fun. I’ve received so many compliments on my site, with people asking who I hired to design it and I’m so proud to say I designed it myself using Wix.
