Growth relies on one thing: creating a memorable customer experience. 

You can pour tons of time and energy into creating your Wix site and finding ways to get traffic to your website. But without a good lead generation process in place, your business won’t get the desired results you want. To help you get more from your business website, ManyChat integrates with Wix to help your business grow by building meaningful relationships with customers.

Once you connect your Wix website with ManyChat, you can create a better lead generation process for your business while helping site visitors quickly, and driving more sales. 

Whether you’re building your first or umpteenth Wix website, here’s how you can use ManyChat and Wix to boost your online business. 

Why use the Wix integration for ManyChat? 

Marketers favor a handful of key advantages when connecting ManyChat and Wix. Among these are: 

  1. Install lead generation tools instantly. You can use a Growth Tool to begin capturing leads right away. Set the design, timing, and placement, then publish it to your site in one click. Once you add a piece of HTML code to your Wix website, any tool you create will appear on your site right away, growing your Messenger subscriber list and building relationships with visitors at scale. 
  2. Greet visitors on your Wix website. A ManyChat bot is an excellent tool to help you build relationships with new visitors. You can send an automatic greeting when they land on your website, 24/7, and help visitors answer questions or find products in your Wix store. 
  3. Sell more with Live Chat. If a website visitor needs to talk to a human, you can jump in a conversation with them, anytime, anywhere. With ManyChat’s mobile app (available in the App Store and Google Play), you can chat with customers right from your phone, plus, manage subscriber data and send them down automated lead generation flows to encourage interactions and sales. 
  4. Send targeted campaigns to customers. Our omnichannel Flow Builder lets you talk to customers through SMS, Messenger, and email. It’s the fastest, easiest way to send post-purchase follow-ups, collect product feedback, and drive sales. 

It doesn’t stop there. After connecting your Wix account to ManyChat, you can set up conversion tracking and access ManyChat analytics, so you know exactly how much money your lead generation process makes.
