The bootcamp was intense – but worth the effort. The session motivated and trained us to a create new website in 48 hours – that’s pretty incredible! Wix is a really user friendly platform that offers small businesses many options to run their website more effectively. Boostflow was great at sharing information and their skills to make it all come together. We got new bookings within the first 6 hours of the website going live!
