I got started in the design business working in advertising for huge NY agencies. I was always graphical and visual in everything I did. Being in advertising gave me an outlet to express my artistic side while building a solid career I could truly grow in. I went all the way to the top, then left in 2000 to start my own marketing software company – Ad Giants.
I heard about Wix simply doing a Google search. I always wanted to take my design to the web, but didn’t have the time to learn HTML or coding. So I was searching for the best online platform that was powerful, but easy to learn. I tried a few, but Wix hands down beat them all. Since then, I have built over 50 websites using Wix and I’m still pushing the limits of the tool with my design. Love it!
Wix has allowed me to help others who don’t have web design skills, and even though Wix offers cool templates, they lack the skills to even make a template “their own” and that is what everyone truly wants. Their “own” designed website to express what they feel and see.
By being a Wix Pro, it has given me the opportunity to listen to people, find out what they feel and desire in a website, and I become the translator to lead them to a truly professional design. It has also allowed me to share the years of marketing experience I have with clients who came for just a website, but left with a deeper understanding of how to build their business with other mediums yet still tie them all back to the website, which is the cornerstone for any successful business today.
I am living my dream through my own company. I have created game-changing software for marketing that is honestly changing the way advertising is done. So that is where I draw most of my satisfaction from with regards to a “dream anything” situation. But Wix allows me to express my design talents and combine that with my learned knowledge of marketing to help others, and that really makes me happy.
