Keeping in contact with your clients and marketing your business will ultimately keep the money rolling in. With Wix, that’s easy because you can do everything from the same platform. One Wix add-on that’s making life easier for business owners is Shoutout.
The Shoutout Marketing add-on is a simple way of making your business more accessible without the need to use third-party services. Now with over 1.5 million businesses subscribed, this is a ‘must have’ for any company.
What is Shoutout?
A shoutout is just another name for an email blast. Each shoutout, depending on the plan, will have a maximum number of people it can be sent to. Even the most basic plan is suitable for email lists of fewer than 5,000 people. For small businesses, this is a cost-effective way of staying in touch without those expensive monthly costs you find with services like Mailchimp.
Unless you’re sending out emails multiple times per week, you’re going to find the basic plan to be more than enough for your email marketing campaigns.
And at just $4.90 per month, it’s not going to dent your cash flow.
You’re in Total Control
The value of the Wix website builder has always been to give you total control over the look and feel of your website. That same principle has been carried over to Shoutout.
It comes with literally hundreds of premade and custom styles. Make the email you want by changing the background, the color, the font, and more.
And if you’re feeling lazy you can just pick out one of the many unique premade styles for your email. You’ll be able to create a completely unique format and style within a matter of minutes.
Fully Integrated Contacts
There’s nothing more annoying than trying to keep track of hundreds and thousands of contacts. You can do just that with fully integrated contacts.
In seconds you can record and store the contact details of your clients. Plus, you can put them into various categories and send a shoutout to them without any messing around.
Addressing Your Social Media Needs
Social media is essential for promoting your business and making sure that it gets the attention it deserves. Wix Shoutout comes fully prepared for that with a range of social media tools.
All your shoutouts can be shared on social media networks. It goes one step further than an ordinary email blast because that same message can be placed on your favorite social media network to bring in even more fans.
But how do you know that it’s actually working?
Shoutout has you covered there too. It comes with a completely built-in tracker. You’ll be able to generate detailed stats from your various campaigns to find out what works and what doesn’t.
This analytical information is extremely accurate and will help your business make the big decisions.
The Only Truly Mobile Campaign Manager
Unlike other brands, you get the same functionality on your smartphone as you do on your computer. Just connect your smartphone with shoutout and you’ll be able to send shoutouts on the go.
You can send the same beautiful emails from your phone. And if you’ve already saved your favorite template all you have to do is write the email and you’re good to go.
Plus, all shoutouts are automatically optimized for mobile.
What’s the Value in Upgrading?
You may think that as a small business you don’t need anything more than the cheapest, most basic package. There’s no denying that this is a good way to get started with Shoutout, but there’s value in upgrading.
For a start, limits on both shoutouts and the number of contacts are lifted as you start to upgrade. Furthermore, with the Business Essential package you can connect the add-on to your Wix website. And if you decide to opt for the Pro version you get specialized VIP support.
It’s not expensive to upgrade. The premium package will cost you $44.90 per month. But the value this can bring to your business should easily cover the sticker value.
That’s how valuable Wix Shoutout is to any business that uses it correctly.
Last Word – Why Shoutout is Crucial for All Businesses
Shoutout offers an additional level of intimacy with your clients. Do away with that one-track style of marketing and invest in each individual client. Begin to build those relationships that will lead them further and further down your sales funnel.
The value of Shoutout is that it’s cheap and you can do everything in-house. There’s no need to sign up with a separate service because everything can be integrated with your Wix website.
You’ll see an uptick in your business and you’ll find that you have better relationships with all of your clients.
