Hi everyone.

 

I am looking to upload my first blog post, but I am not sure how to upload it to my webpage that's titled "Blog." Any idea how I can do this?

 

Thanks

Hey there, you're well on the right track. 

In order to display your blogs individually, you'll have to go back to the blog creation page in your admin and click the "Add blog post" button on the top right. There you can create the content of a blog, edit and customize as needed, save and publish. Looks like this: Screenshot 2022-08-04 7.25.04 PM.png

 

Once that is completed in the admin, you can go ahead and view your blogs online and the format should show them as individual blogs like so:

Hope that helps. If I can help clarify any of that, please let me know! You can also find these tips in video form here as well as some examples of really well done blogs to help you fine-tune your posts.

How are you finding working on the Shopify platform so far? Have you run into any issues I might be able to assist with? If you'd like to share your page here, I'd be happy to review your work so far and offer some feedback and guidance.

Thank you for this! I was able to add the blog post. Question, right now,
the whole page is the one blog post that I posted. How do I make the blog
page a collection of blog posts that you can click to read instead of
having the full post be opened once the blog link is clicked?

Thank you!

Hello. Thank you for this information. I was able to post a blog as an
individual post.

I would definitely love to hear your feedback on what we can do to improve
our site. Our site is www.waggin.com

Thanks

Hey Cesar! Glad that worked for you and thanks for the link! I absolutely love the concept of this product and think the name Waggin' is extremely clever branding. Nicely done. 

Your content is looking really great so far!

I see that you have a banner indicating that pre-orders are launching soon and I'd recommend actually producing a product page where you can showcase the backpack, have a detailed product description with measurements and all relevant details and some real life images. These help for size comparison and relatability. The product page can still have a "pre-orders soon" banner and when you're ready to start accepting pre-orders then it's an easy switch! 

Otherwise, everything has been well thought out and I'd like to congratulate you on your successes so far. Fine-tuning your SEO would be a great next step. 

Do you have any questions about where to go from here once your product/orders launch?

P.S. Ginger looks like such a sweetie. What a lucky pup!

Hi,

Thank you for the kind words. We do intend to put a product page with the
details once we fine tune the prototype and are a bit closer to accepting
pre-orders.

Thank you for the SEO link. That's definitely our next challenge that we
want to attack.

We definitely will have questions about product orders / launch. Right now,
we aren't sure where to start with that though.

Thanks

Hi Cesar! Just jumping in to give Ren a hand. 

 

For your orders and fulfillment, do you have a warehouse that you will be fulfilling orders from? Or will you be packing and shipping orders from your home or personal location? It's okay if you don't know yet, as I can see from your earlier posts that prototyping, etc, is still under way. 

 

If you believe that the setup will be done as fulfillment through a warehouse location, I would definitely check in to see if they support fulfillment requests by email. This is super easy to set up and essentially can send their email service an email every time an order is placed and provide them all the relevant details. This way you don't need a staff member forwarding orders over all day long. You can learn more about setting that up here: Custom fulfillment services · Shopify Help Center.

 

 I do agree with Ren that an interest capture page is incredibly important! Not only is it a huge benefit for your SEO, as it allows the page to have time to be indexed by search engines, it builds brand and trust with your customers. You can do a very simple page like this (check screenshot below) where you prompt customers to sign up for your newsletter so that you can email them once pre-orders are live.

Highlight 1: If using a new 2.0 style theme you can create new product templates for your "pre-order" items. 

Highlight 2: Remove all unwanted content from the product page and add/move the newsletter signup and prompt to be highlighted. 

 

If you choose not to go that route, I would still encourage you to update your newsletter signup prompts with stronger calls to action and to let customers know they can get more information if they do. 

 

Another huge benefit of having a specific page is that customers can bookmark the page to come back to, you can link to it from your social media accounts (get those going ASAP!) and this builds trust with the platforms you are selling on as well. Showcasing that you are a real business, selling a real product is vitally important when selling online and it is something that all platforms and search engines will be calculating regularly. 

 

Hope that info helps!
