That's a great question. About 5 years ago, we would have said it really depends on what you need. But for the last few years, the winner has been a clear choice. Let's look at Book like a Boss and Wix Booking to see a quick side-by-side comparison. Let's go!
A solution for any service-based business, Wix Bookings frees up your time by letting you accept bookings and payments.
All-in-one scheduling platform for you to take appointments, sell your services and manage your business. Book Like a Boss in many ways functions as a stand-alone website.
The set-up process for Wix Bookings has multiple parts. To get started, you have to do the following:
Build a Wix website using its Wix Editor or Artificial Design Intelligence site builder tools; this involves:
Selecting the site’s category
Choosing a site template
Editing the template and adding your content
Adding site elements (photos, videos, buttons, menus, etc.)
Purchasing or connecting a domain so you can publish the website
Publishing the website
If you already have an existing Wix website, you can add Wix booking by visiting the Wix.com’s App Market. Select the Wix Bookings app and add it to your site by clicking “Add to Site.” Remember, you still must have a Business Premium Plan starting at $23. a month to use Wix Bookings.
Please Note: Wix rates are constantly fluctuating from month-to-month so these starting Wix rates may increase.
After you have finished building your website, aquiring and / or connecting a domain and publishing the site. You can visit the Wix Booking dashboard to customize your booking details and design (time required depends on extent of detail preferred).
The set-up process for BLAB is very simple. To get started, all you have to do is the following:
Sign up for a free Book Like a Boss account to schedule appointments online. Or if you want to charge for your sessions (great for therapists, coaches, tutors, music lessons) then upgrade to the Cappuccino plan for $19. a month.
Your Book Like a Boss account provides a booking page that you can use to schedule appointments and sell your products or services. For many entrepreneurs, this solution can function like an all-in-one website.
The sign up process takes about 2 minutes. Afterwards you can visit the account’s dashboard to customize your booking page design and session details (time required depends on extent of detail preferred).

I've been programming, designing, writing and publishing professionally online since 1995. I've worn many hats throughout my life, but the common core of my career has always been media. Besides theportfolio you see on TNW Creations, my internet presence has been substantial for over 2 decades. In 1995, while still in college, I founded TNW Creations and became part of the grassroots development for teaching the Lakhota language online. By 2004, my bilingual work was listed on many sites, including National Geographic , Encarta and Touchstone Pictures Hidalgo. When I'm not developing and writing, you'll find me managing MagicStoryLand.Com, creating kid-friendly game & video content, investigating and initating hostile website takedowns, posting salty articles about cyber threats, moderating UnifyLife.Org and enjoying my community, church & family.
