How long does it take to design a WIX website?

How long does it take to design a WIX website is the number one question we get from most prospective clients when performing a website design project. The website design time depends on a variety of criteria.


This post describes the main five criteria that will determine how long it will take to design a WIX website.


Let's start by looking at some numbers:

BASELINE

10-15 page WIX website

3-4 weeks

CONTENT

Sitemap is not ready

Add 1-2 weeks

Content is not ready

Add 2-6 weeks

PAGES

Over 15 pages

Add 1-2 weeks

Over 50 pages

Add 2-4 weeks

Over 100 pages

Add 4-8 weeks

DISTINCTIVE PAGE DESIGN

Over 5 distinctive page designs

Add 1-2 weeks

Over 10 unique page designs

Add 2-3 weeks

FUNCTIONALITY

Additional WIX Apps

Add 1 week

WIX Velo (coding)

Add 1-5 weeks

STAKEHOLDERS

3 stakeholders

Add 20%

Each additional stakeholder over 3

Add 10%

A simple 10-15 page WIX website should take around 3-4 weeks to create. This estimate is for a custom design. If someone promises you that they can design your WIX website in a week, it's not a custom design.


The five criteria that determine how long it takes to design a WIX website are as follows:



Content


The speed at which the content material, such as text and images, may be delivered is by far the most significant constraint to a website's launch date. Because the client supplies the content, this is usually the most difficult barrier to overcome. They're also frequently too busy with their business' day-to-day operations to devote the necessary time organizing and preparing the content. This is something we've tried to address in our website design process.



Pages


The length of time it takes to design a new WIX website is largely determined by the size of the project. Larger websites take longer to build than small ones. In general, the larger a website is, the bigger the project becomes and the longer it takes. That's because each extra page requires QA (quality assurance), mobile design, graphics, SEO tagging, and so on...



Distinctive Page Designs


Size isn't always important. For example, a 15-page website may take a long time to develop if each one of the pages is distinct from the next. Not only is the total number of pages essential, but also the total number of different page designs.
