3 Ways to Drive the Right Traffic to Your Wix Website
Social Media: Share your site on social media and don’t be shy about asking your followers to re-share in order to spread the word even further. Fortunately, Wix makes it super easy to add social share icons and then link these up to your individual accounts.
Once inside the Wix editor, click the Add button on the left and select Social from the list. You can drag a social bar onto your site, position it, and then click on the bar to see the Set Social Links button where you’ll manage the settings. Easy.
Site Booster App: This 5-star app lists your sites on business directories including Google, Bing and Yahoo. It literally ‘puts you on the map’ by showing your business address, hours and phone number in places like Google Maps, Bing Maps, Yelp, FourSquare, Yahoo! Maps and more. Finally, it will help you rank higher in search results increasing your visibility and traffic in the process.
Bonus: This third-party app comes free for the first year with select Premium Plans. An email will be sent to you after you upgrade with instructions on how to install it. You can also install it directly from the App Market on the left side of the Wix editor.
Wix ShoutOut: Get the word out there by taking advantage of Wix ShoutOut – an app designed to help you create and send out eye-catching marketing messages to your subscribers. People that have already shown interest in what you have to offer.
Access this app from your site’s dashboard by hovering over the Email Marketing App and then clicking on Send a ShoutOut.
If you’re inside the Wix editor, you can click on the Promotion tab on the left side, and access Wix ShoutOut from there(see below.) Once you’re there, click the blue, Start Now button and follow the prompts to send out a professional message in no time.
Bonus: The free version lets you send 3 ShoutOuts per month with a total of 5,000 emails per month!
