wix and other easy making website solutions

  • # September 12, 2012 at 4:42 pm

    so i have a friend who does not know html through a hole in the wall…
    yet he makes websites for people.
    In one evening he makes a few thousand dollars… how?

    apparenlty now creates html5 websites and is of course super easy to use.

    here I sit on my butt being all creative and creating websites from scratch.
    obviously wix is not wordpress and if someone wants a blog or a larger website they will not be able to use wix, however it makes me feel uneasy to know its super easy for people to make websites, and it now supports a shopping cart and all…

    so what will become of us developers when most people are willing to pay for easy made websites (or dont even know that their website has a template shared by 1000 other people)
    rather than premium?

    Hmmmm…..I dunno…this feels spammy.

    I could be wrong though.

    @Paulie_D I would consider it spam if he started linking to the site multiple times.

    @shamai Eventually those clients of his will realize. There’s nothing you can really do. When you start receiving clients with real budgets, you’ll notice they are far less ignorant to what is acceptable.
