How to Become a Freelance Wix Developer

There are a number of platforms available for entrepreneurs and small businesses to launch a website. One popular platform is Wix.com which allows entrepreneurs and business owners to launch their own website and design their own e-commerce store or artists and writers to create their own personal website to increase online presence.

As the platform grows in popularity, more Wix developers are available to help clients develop apps and responsive web designs for desktop, mobile, and tablet use. If you enjoy developing websites and apps using a popular and flexible platform, you may have what it takes to become a freelance Wix developer on Upwork.

What does a freelance Wix developer do?

Freelance Wix developers are capable of creating responsive websites and/or apps using the Wix platform. Freelancers familiar with this platform can create and launch responsive websites for desktop, mobile, and tablet. In addition, Wix developers can build apps that are also suitable for integration into desktop, mobile, and tablet environments.

A freelance Wix developer can use the platform’s easy-to-use drag-and-drop editor or use Velo by Wix, the company’s full-stack development environment, to build and deploy professional websites and apps. There are also a variety of plugins to add additional functionality to the site including social media and customer care support.

Depending on client requirements and objectives, a Wix site development project can help organizations build public-facing websites or apps suitable for making available Wix’s App Market.

What skills do I need to become a freelance Wix developer?

While developers specializing in creating websites and apps on the Wix platform offer a variety of skills clients may find attractive, there are several skills that are common among seasoned freelancers.

Common skills a freelance Wix developer should possess include:

  • Knowledge and understanding of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. While Wix’s CMS offers an intuitive, drag-and-drop design interface that allows anyone to create simple websites, many clients need additional website design capabilities that go beyond the basics the platform offers. When clients need additional functionality that can only be incorporated by using HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, freelance Wix developers should possess the skills needed to leverage these options.
  • Database management capability. There will be times when clients need additional functionality with their websites or apps. One of the most useful additions is the incorporation of extended database capability. When clients require apps that connect with large amounts of data on the backend, a capable Wix developer should be knowledgeable about how to build and deliver these elements.
  • Familiarity with website hosting. While Wix does offer a hosting platform as part of its package, clients may also need additional capabilities, such as forwarding domains, configuring “who is” profiles or transferring existing domains to Wix. A freelance Wix developer should be well-versed in how to handle these types of requests from clients.
  • An understanding of libraries and frameworks. To add additional capabilities to Wix products a freelance developer should be familiar with libraries and frameworks as well as know the difference between the two. Knowing this difference comes in handy when designing client websites. As such, freelance Wix developers should have intimate knowledge of these configurations as well as which method to incorporate for their clients.
  • Project management experience: The process of website development can be a long one with many moving parts. You’ll want to make sure you’re well versed in how to carry out and optimize a web design that will serve your client’s needs and give their customers the user experience they deserve.

What are the core freelance Wix developer job responsibilities

Wix offers clients a platform that allows users to create a number of websites and apps that offer a variety of capabilities. When hiring a freelance Wix developer for the Wix platform, clients are looking for specific capabilities from their contractors.

While duties will vary from client to client and project to project, this job description covers some of the responsibilities that clients will ask their developer to handle, including the following:

  • Use the Wix platform to develop external-facing websites and internal-facing intranets for use by customers and employees, respectively
  • Create high-quality standardized design templates unique to the company brand that all subsequent web projects will follow
  • Identify, analyze, and resolve any programmatic errors regarding coordination of front-end and back-end information
  • Incorporate HTML, CSS, and JavaScript when needed to extend the capability of Wix apps.
  • Develop and distribute updates and reports to senior management and other stakeholders regarding the progress of website and app projects.

Should I get a degree or certification to become a freelance Wix developer?

While there are Wix developers doing freelance work with no formal education, obtaining some form of credential will go a long way in building your freelance career over the long haul.

Some examples of popular degrees, certifications, or classes that might be helpful in building a freelance Wix developer career include:

  • An associate, bachelor’s, or master’s degree in computer science, web development, graphic design, marketing, user experience, or an equivalent field of study from an accredited college or university.
  • Velo Certification - offered by Wix
  • Wix Website Designing Master Course - offered by Udemy
