As a professional web designer, one of the biggest challenges you probably face is transitioning the responsibility for the website's content over to the client. When it comes to passing on the torch, there is no magic recipe. Each client has different expectations for their new website and your continued work - especially those who are not very tech-savvy. So it is important to have that in mind when designing, in order to avoid unintended disappointment.
For example, you wouldn’t want to see your clients’ websites quickly running out of date because they did not plan or cannot afford to generate fresh content constantly. Although each type of client requires a different approach when it comes to defining where your role ends and theirs begins, there are several Wix features that can help you both overcome the separation anxiety.
All of them require very little recurring attention, and can be integrated into the routine of any small business owner. You should mention these features from the beginning and see if the client is on board with adding them to their websites, so that their implementation is as smooth as possible. Keep reading to take a look into six must-have Wix website features that require zero maintenance.
01. Automated Emails
Automated Emails is a little gem hidden inside your Dashboard, using the power of Wix ShoutOut to save you (and your client) a lot of time. This helpful tool generates an automated response each time a user performs a specific action on their site, such as following up a purchase with a ‘Thank You’ message or greeting newsletters’ subscribers with a welcome email. All you have to do is define the appropriate triggers and their respective actions, a step which you will probably want to do together with your client. We suggest coming up with a list of the most helpful ones, and then preparing the corresponding content for each scenario.
