Optimising a media-heavy portfolio site built with Wix.
Similar to a portfolio site - where primary emphasis is placed on high-quality visuals and media - it was of utmost importance that this website was able to deliver both photo and video content consistently, effectively, and quickly for visitors around the world.
However, in its default form, Wix sites are widely known to face availability issues in China due to overall platform incompatibility with onshore delivery. In fact, due to the way Wix is built as a platform, Wix sites inherently require more custom engineering work to optimise for China than sites built with other website builders.

"We needed to make our U.S. site viewable in China because we discovered that our site’s video content (commercials and music videos shot by our clients, etc.) were restricted there.
China has a huge market for the commercial industry and advertising which our agency had not yet tapped into – Chinafy allows us to expand our outreach to this market. "
"We had an assistant who did online research regarding the topic of converting U.S. websites to Chinese and making site content viewable in China. He discovered Chinafy quickly via Google."
"Last fall and winter we had contacts in China to begin launching a Chinese branch of our company, but soon after COVID hit we had to hold off on our development. We had built most of our China-facing site with minimal challenges, technologically speaking. "
"We have had a positive experience so far working with Chinafy to create our China-facing site."
