When one of your primary drivers for your business is your website, it’s essential that you make it attractive and accessible to clients. The Wix website builder, reviewed by top tool testers, allows you to create a stunning website. But if you need to extend its functionality even further, the Wix App Market is your next stop. With hundreds of apps to add to your site, the Wix App Market caters to many different business types. From social networking applications to marketing tools and analytics, there’s something for just about everyone! Still, if you’re busy running your business, you may have trouble carving out the time to dig through all we offer. Not to worry, we have you covered.
Sit back while we showcase some of the apps that can help your business in big ways:
The Amazon app lets your visitors know that you also sell products on the eCommerce giant and gives them a sneak peek of what you offer right on your website. You can show off 30 of your Amazon products in a stunning product gallery and display any item in its available colors. Have more than 30 items you want to show on your website? Not a problem! You can add the app to your page again to include another gallery of items.
Another great feature you can find on the Amazon app? If you’re an affiliate for the leading e-retailer, you can still earn commission on purchases from the products that you display on your website by easily connecting your existing account. Overall, the Amazon app not only complements your website, it also lets your site visitors know that you’re not just another seller floating down the Amazon river.
Have a brick and mortar store in addition to your stunning website? Then Moovit is for you! Adding Moovit to your site allows you to drive foot traffic to your store with easy-to-follow public transit directions. Available in over 1500 cities, 78 countries & 44 languages, this is a tool that you can set and forget after the effortless setup. Our favorite part is that your visitors can plan their trip ahead of time by setting their departure time and date right from the app.
As you’d expect, you can customize the look and feel of Moovit so it fits right in with your website, and you’ll be happy to know that it looks stunning on both desktop and mobile devices!
Visitor Analytics is exactly what it sounds like; it’s a great tool that gives tons of insight on how people interact with your website The app collects the stats you care about, but one of the best aspects is how those stats are displayed. The charts and graphs are easy on the eyes and even easier to understand.
Tracking users by their country, device type, IP address and conversion rate is just the beginning of Visitor Analytics. You can see your visitors’ navigation path so you know exactly how they interacted with your website, viewable from a simple and straightforward chart. We know you have a business to run, and we don’t expect you to keep your eyes glued to your computer at all times, so Visitor Analytics lets you set up email notifications so you can stay in the know while you’re on the go! You’ll also be able to export your analytics data to an Excel spreadsheet for additional flexibility.
Sometimes getting the information you need from a potential customer can be an arduous task. It can easily turn into a game of email tag until you get what you need in order to progress. Luckily for you, if you need to give your clients the ability to send you photos, documents, etc. from your website, Get Files to Dropbox is your answer.
Effortlessly connect to your Dropbox account and customize the upload form so you can ensure it fits right in with your website. It also allows you to require an email or password before someone can upload a file, and you can even set the file size limit. You can also stay up to date and opt to receive email notifications when a file is uploaded.
Whether you’re collecting resumes for a new job opening within your biz or you need photos for a custom order, it just doesn’t get easier than this.
Why have a separate feed for your Facebook, Twitter and Instagram on your website when you can condense all three (and more) into one streamlined package? The Social Media Stream app lets you do just this, allowing you to avoid a cluttered or noisy smear of social apps all over your site.
Painfully easy to set up, Social Media Stream allows you to add your Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube and Tumblr account so your site visitors are kept up to date with all your social escapades! You’ll also be able to fully customize the app’s design so it matches your brand. Moreover, you can be assured that the app will look great both on mobile and desktop as well.
If you’re a landscaper, antique restoration expert, or have a business that makes anything look better than it did in its previous state, Before & After Slider is a must-have app for your website. All you have to do is upload two photos and this tool takes care of the rest, so you can showcase your talents in a flash. Your website visitors will be able to interact with your images by using the slider icon to see the before and after photos in all their stunning glory. This is a simple app that really speaks for itself. Just take a look.
Now this is an app anyone can benefit from. Traffic Generator creates and optimizes ad campaigns for you via Google Adwords and Bing Ads in order to drive customers to your website. With a 30-second setup, it’s definitely worth taking a look.
