Any person who has had experience setting up a business or running a business on a day-to-day basis knows what a challenging operation it is. While many starting entrepreneurs and professional freelancers do their best to prepare and streamline their work, there are some aspects that often get left out of the big business plan.
The “backstage” of daily business management requires attention to detail, performing technical tasks, juggling administrative chores, keeping schedules, and more. This sounds like a hassle, but it doesn’t have to be. With Wix, you get all the tools you need to manage your business smoothly and skillfully, all in one place.
You already have a stunning website. Now with Wix, you can easily manage your entire business online. Wix provides you with a set of professional business management tools that will simplify your administrative flow, clear up your desk and leave you more time for biz dev and strategy. From building a website to keeping invoices, Wix delivers the ultimate experience for running a business online.
The following apps and services were created with one purpose – helping you manage an efficient and thriving business operation:
A business manager always needs to have a bird’s-eye view over every activity that is taking place. Wix Engage gives you the freedom to do that.
With Wix Engage, you get real-time updates whenever site visitors engage with your site. When they purchase something on your store, send you a message on your site, book an appointment or interact with you in other ways, Wix Engage let’s you know right away so you can keep track of these actions.
That’s not all. In addition to monitoring your business activity in real-time, the app also allows you communicate with your visitors, respond to their questions, text or even call to follow up on leads. Think of Wix Engage as a team member that lets you know whenever something important is going on so you can take further action and seal the deal. Perfect teamwork!
For most managers and administrators, invoices are a hassle and a nuisance, yet they are absolutely crucial in the business operation. What to do? Meet Wix Invoices, the friendliest invoicing tool that organizes your billing workflow and makes your life that much easier.
The keyword here is simplicity – you can easily create invoices to send to your clients, keep track of the payment status, set and monitor payment deadlines and monitor incoming funds. Wix Invoices allows you to edit the information on your business invoices and specify your services and products, providing a professional and detailed billing experience for you and your customers.
Your business’ contact list is one of the most valuable resources you have. You need a system that allows you to manage the list properly, and Wix Contacts is exactly that. This tool streamlines your interactions with your contact list, making your communication process easier and faster.
One of the most important features in Wix Contacts is combining several input sources – you can add new contacts manually, you can import contact lists from your email accounts and you can use a contact form on your site to collect more and more leads. To make your interactions with your contacts more effective, you can also divide them into contact groups or categories. When you have a newsletter or email campaign for distribution, your contact lists are just one click away.
Keeping an organized schedule is a primary goal for all business managers. It can get tricky, but we have just the solution for that. Wix Bookings is a powerful appointment scheduling app that was designed to support businesses and freelancers in increasing their productivity and profit while eliminating the hassle of managing timetables.
Wix Bookings is fully customizable and offers a variety of scheduling services, including group sessions, multiple-instructor options, online payment, personalized pricing, email reminders and so much more. In addition to offering you the peace of mind of taking care of your business calendar, Wix Bookings makes it easier to set up appointments with you. You will see your schedule filling up faster and faster!
Building a long-term business relationship with your target audience requires you to develop personal interactions and show them that you value them. Email communications is an effective method of showing that type of appreciation but it is also a time-consuming task, especially if you want to send different emails to different categories of clients or users. This can be easily addressed by setting up automated emails with Wix ShoutOut.
Wix ShoutOut is a superb newsletter service that allows you to design and send out beautiful emails to your contact list. In addition to your regular newsletter, you can use ShoutOut to send automated emails following a certain action. For instance, you can define that every new subscriber receives a “welcome!” email, or that each visitor that submits a contact form will be greeted with an acknowledging email.
You can customize the email design and the texts to personalize your messaging. This allows you to cultivate more meaningful connections with your audience while saving you a good amount of time every day.
Working with a team has many advantages, one of which is the ability to integrate input from people with different perspectives and skills. This collaborative environment is a major component in helping a business to thrive. Invite Contributors is an app that extends your office brainstorming sessions to working on your business website, allowing multiple team members to collaborate on the design and the content of the site.
