Your website is your online home. Like any home sweet home, you’ve designed and decorated your web pages just the way you like it. But a house is not a home without those little trinkets that give your living space a personal touch. At Wix, we call those trinkets “Web Apps”.
Web Apps are the missing link that you didn’t know your website needed to give your site an extra boost. They’re calendars that let clients book you for an appointment, they’re the secret ingredient to increase your site traffic, they’re the easiest way to sell your products online, & so much more. In short, they make your website and your online business look and operate the best that it can!
Adding an app to your website is incredibly easy, and trust us, once you find your favorite, you’ll wonder how you ever lived without it! Here’s what you need to know to boost your site and grow your business with the help of the Wix App Market.
First things first, you can’t go on finding your favorite Web App if you can’t find the Wix App Market to begin with! The Wix App Market can be found in 3 places: 1. Inside your Editor: Next time you’re fixing up your Wix website, pay attention to the fourth icon on your left sidebar menu. That’s your first easy gateway to the Wix App Market. Here you’ll find a variety of tools to enhance your website’s capabilities. Wonder what these tools can do? We’ll get into that further down this post. 2. In Your Dashboard: If you’re in the ‘My Sites’ tab of your Wix account, you’ll notice a button called ‘Manage Site’ next to your website. Once you’ve clicked that button, you’ll find a whole dashboard of goodies on the left hand of your screen. Click on the App Market tab to find tailor made apps that will help grow your business. These apps and services were specially selected to help generate traffic to your site, promote your business, manage your business, improve your SEO & so much more. 3.

The Wix App Market is like the ultimate website toolbox filled with items that are made to enhance your website. Many of the apps that you’ll find there are made in the Wix Labs, but others are made by third parties that you’re already familiar with. Popular brands like MailChimp, Etsy, Constant Contact, Eventbrite, Shopify & more have created helpful apps that add the same services that you love on their external site seamlessly into your Wix website.
We’re not kidding when we say that the apps in the Wix App Market can do pretty much anything! Here are some of our favorite functions. Improve your communication:
