New Productivity Hack From Wix: Smart Actions
Today’s huge leaps in technology have made so many things easier. And yet, with so much being sped up, the amount of daily tasks we expect to get done has grown. That’s why we love us a good time-saving hack, and if you’ve got yourself a Wix website, we’ve got some pretty exciting news.
World, meet Smart Actions – your business website’s new awesome assistant who works tirelessly and for free.
What Is It?
It’s an intuitive feature that works with our newsletter tool, Wix ShoutOut, to send automatic emails to your contacts. Remember all those times you meant to send a thank you note to a client but didn’t get to it? Or when you really wanted to follow up with a customer after their purchase but forgot when something else came up? “Smart Actions” makes sure you’ll never forget another email by automating common business tasks. It operates on a simple “if this then that” logic, based on your own chosen set of requirements. For example, you can set Smart Actions to send a welcome email to every new member who subscribes to your newsletter.
Much like your very own IFTTT assistant within your Wix account, you can choose triggers and assign automated responses to them.
How Can It Help Me?
Ready to ‘set it and forget it’? Great! Currently, Smart Actions has 12 options you can play around with. Each one serves a different purpose but they all achieve the same goal: saving you time while increasing your engagement with your contacts and potentially earning your repeat customers. Here's what you can automate with Smart Actions:
Thank your site visitors for contacting you
Invite site visitors who have contacted you to subscribe to your site
Welcome new subscribers
Welcome new site members
Keep in touch with your site members
Thank your customer for making a purchase
