If you’re looking to create a website for your business, Wix might be the best website builder option. Currently, it is the prefered tool to create websites for over 176 million users! From the most basic packages, to unlimited and VIP, Wix plans offer something for everyone. To support all of these users and offer them tools to improve their websites, an impressive app market is constantly being updated.
Furthermore, in the last few years, Wix employees have been working hard to create more than just a visual website builder tool - which was already a good option for non-technical users - but an overall coding platform called Corvid. This enables developers to create literally any type of web platform, while at the same time, still maintaining the possibility for the end-client to modify anything in the interface of a website with incredible ease - a perfect match.
Let’s assume you’ve created your Wix website, perhaps you’ve even hired a Wix Partner to help you with the harder parts of the implementation, and you’re extremely satisfied with the design.
Having your website published is just the start of the journey of attracting new customers and connecting with the ones you have. You’ll need to do a lot more for it, such as creating content, making sure you are following privacy regulations, trying to rank on search engines, and overall, exploring all the options on engaging with your visitors and monetizing your business.
In this article, we will give you tips on the best 20+ Wix Apps and Tools that will ensure your website succeeds. We will be covering 3 types of apps:
Wix Apps are apps from the Wix App Market that are made by Wix.
3rd Party Apps are another category of apps from the Wix App Market. However, they are created by 3rd party companies or developers. These apps bring great functionality to the Wix platform and should definitely be used.
Wix Tools are not really apps, but rather functions or tools that are made available by default in Wix, without the need to install them.
