With the onset of the coronavirus and the unprecedented social climate we find ourselves in, businesses are working online more than ever. Having to work from home (WFH) has caused a bit of a kerfuffle for those used to the office environment. With meetings going virtual and getting to work in pajamas it's quite a bit different than what some are accustomed to.
For those businesses with a WIX site, navigating this new world is a little easier than the norm. There are many options to choose from when it comes to working virtually and most of them are included with the premium hosting plan. Here are a few technological functions you have access to with your WIX site:
1. Live Streaming
Perfect for the virtual meeting, online class/course, church service or happy hour, the live streaming option with your WIX site can be quite handy. It's easy to set up and allows you to stay connected with your clients or employees. You can live stream from your iPhone or desktop and set up an event in advance. And, with the Wix Premium Plan, you can live stream for up to three hours.

2. The WIX App
Downloading the WIX app gives you the ability to interact with members of your site and manage your business on the go. It's designed to help you stay in touch with your customers and grow your business. You can write a blog, send out social media posts, create groups among your members, chat with visitors, manage your store and so much more.
But besides all of that greatness, our fave feature of the WIX app is its notifications. Anytime someone visits your site a notification pops up on your phone. It will even tell you where they are visiting from. If you have the chat installed on your site, you can immediately start a conversation with them while they are active on your site, offering convenient customer service in real time.

Why should Facebook get all the fun? You can add the WIX Forum to your site and create a community on your own website. Guests can read, share and like your posts; members can comment, and post; and as the owner you can manage categories, move and delete posts, disable comments and pin a post to the top.
Adding the Forum is a great way to drive traffic to your site, build your community and share your content. Which are all great ways to grow your business.
