June 29, 2010 (Newswire.com) - Small business owners, non-profit organizations, and entrepreneurs are creating their own Flash websites without entering in a single line of code or paying a cent for a professional web designer. This is made possible with Wix' intuitive web-editor, free online software designed to take the hassle out of website building. Users can sign up at Wix to create a free website from scratch, or to customize a Flash web template, with nothing more than the free design tools found inside the website builder. A revolutionary product in the fields of both web design and online marketing, Wix is making it as easier than ever to create and promote a website, even for those with no technical experience.
This week, Wix has released a campaign in which all users who upgrade their free website accounts to a Wix yearly premium package receive $50 vouchers for Facebook advertising. With a premium package, users attain full control over their site's domain, as well as access to Google Analytics and optimized support. By cashing in on this new offer, users are able to tap into their online markets in a highly-efficient manner.
Facebook has grown to become more than a social network, hosting more than 400,000,000 active members engaging in business relationships, buying and selling items. All sorts of consumer needs are satisfied through Facebook, as each member is targeted by ads specifically designed to address interests indicated through user profile text, link behavior and other online activity.
Avishai Abrahami, Wix Founder & CEO, comments: "The Facebook promotion allows Wix users to tap into their online audiences...We're giving site owners a strong push toward customers who are already looking for them."
The Facebook promotion complements a similar special already in effect with Google, in which Wix is offering users free $75 coupons toward Google AdWords. These combined offers amount to $125 in free advertising offered by Wix. Facebook and Google are two of the most popular hubs of online activity. The commercial opportunities that can emerge from this promotion are endless, and users can expect to reap the benefits from their free website ads.
Wix was created in 2006 and is backed by Mangrove Capital Partners, Bessemer Venture Partners and Benchmark Capital. The company is headquartered in NY and has offices in Tel-Aviv. There are currently over 4 million users worldwide with Flash websites built with the Wix free website builder.
