As someone juggling a full-time career with a busy part-time small business, time and money are obviously very important to me. Effectively managing my time and money (expenses and sales) has been a challenge for me since I began this over five years ago.
It was then that I would manage my website with one provider, my email with another, with my accounting, marketing, social media and other business functions spread out over half a dozen other providers. Thus, I spent the majority of my time logging in and out of different sites.
Fortunately in recent years, Wix.com has made my life as a small business owner much easier. Wix started as a website building platform and has grown into so much more. It it basically the lifeline of my business at this point.
Wix is a ridiculously easy to use drag-and-drop website builder and domain/hosting provider that anyone with a computer can use effectively. In the last couple years, Wix has grown and developed into an all-in-one portal allowing business owners like myself to manage their accounting, email marketing campaigns, search engine optimization, email inbox, invoicing, social media content, blogs, CRM, and more. They also have the Wix App Market with dozens of useful apps to business owners.
On top of that, they have also introduced a mobile app allowing me to connect with customers, manage my schedule, invoice and accept payments from customers anywhere, and at anytime.
So if you are thinking of starting a new small business, or already have one and looking to consolidate many of your business functions into one easy-to-use software, I would strongly recommend giving Wix a try!
I’m always looking for new ways to help me run my business better and more efficiently every day. If you have any good recommendations for the latest and greatest in business software, I’d love to hear it in the comments.
