SEO Wiz: Your path to the first page of search results
This incredible solution is going to make your website best friends with Google. Think of the SEO Wiz as your private SEO consultant. This tool helps you improve your website’s ranking on search engines by creating a customized action plan that will analyze your site’s info, track its performance and provide valuable guidance in optimizing it further. As your search engine ranking gets higher, your website will get more and more visits and expand its reach to new audiences.
Wix Forum: Build a powerful community around your brand
One of the most effective methods for engaging with your target audience is to start a conversation. With Wix Forum, you can do that directly on your website by adding a robust forum platform. Through this community, fans and visitors can be in touch with you and with each other directly. They can create their own profiles, share their thoughts and follow each other’s updates. And let’s just be clear here – this is not the kind of grey, unappealing message board you know from 2004. The forum layouts are absolutely gorgeous!
More cool functionalities on Wix ADI
Smooth page transitions: If you feel that your site could use some motion, you will love this feature. Bring your site to life with these animated page transitions. You can make your page slide, fold, turn, fade in, float or fly. It doesn’t just look cool, it will also give your visitors a more dynamic browsing experience.
More flexibility with font sizes: It’s now easier than ever to play around with your site’s text size. Using the simple dial, you can control the size with precision. To save you time, we added an option to easily set the font size for the entire site – but you can also change a specific text segment, of course.
New mobile capabilities
Wix Chat for mobile: Remember when you had to be in front of your computer in order to answer your visitors’ questions? Those days are gone. The new Wix Chat feature in the mobile app lets you engage with them directly from your mobile device. By being 100% available, you’ll be able to solve problems, provide assistance and prep a sale on the go.
Mobile Crop: Make your mobile site even more beautiful by optimizing images for mobile viewing. No need to prepare your visuals in advance and calculate heights and widths. Now all you need to do is enter the mobile Editor and use the cropping tool to customize your images.
Stylish new players on Wix Music
The web design masterminds from the Wix Studio created a new player for Wix Music users that will totally transform your music website – for good. The new look includes three different layouts for a playlist player, so you can choose the style that best suits your overall site design. Because after all, your awesome music deserves a rockin’ design.
Promote multiple events
In real life, and especially in business life, many things are happening at the same time. You work hard to plan multiple events, shows or meetups and you should be able to prepare and promote them to your audience in the simplest and most effective way. That’s why we added a new feature to Wix Events, which allows you to create multiple events and display them throughout your website. Have a weekend-long conference coming up? This is your solution.
Member Login for Wix Bookings
Your online scheduling system just got a significant upgrade. From now on, your clients are able to create member profiles on your website, keep track of their scheduled appointments and make changes to them if needed. This will make your interaction with your clientele much smoother and your calendar will be even more accurate and orderly than it was before.
New apps that add more pizzazz to your site
360 Images: Your visitors will be wowed when they see gorgeous 360° images displayed on your site. Thanks to this app, they’ll be able to “jump in” and view your hotel rooms, your venue, or your products as if they were standing right in front of them.
Facebook Store: Want more exposure for your online store? Now you can showcase your products directly on Facebook and use this powerful marketing platform to sell more. This app easily integrates your Wix Store to your Facebook page in a few clicks.
Voice Comments+: Using testimonials on your site is highly effective in demonstrating trustworthiness and reliability to your clients. With this app, you now have an innovative way to record voice testimonials and reviews from your customers and fans. A person’s voice can say so much more than a short paragraph. Let your happy customers speak on your behalf!
