Website Help Is Here!


Have you ever felt overwhelmed before sitting down to build your first website?  Do you stare at your computer for hours hoping that it will build itself?  Do you constantly ask yourself: “Where should I start?” 

I know how hard it can be to get your first website off the ground, especially if you’re new to internet marketing.  We’ve all wrestled with major decisions from “What’s the purpose of my site?” to “What type of design to use,” to “What kinds of pages should I include?”  Don’t we all wish that someone would sit next to us and help get that site published?

Everyone looking for guidance is in luck!  We recently introduced an integrated Website Setup Wizard and Checklist that will make it easier than ever for you to make an awesome site so you can announce your business to the world.


Website Wizard

So you just signed up for your free trial and you think “wow, what do I do now?”  As soon as you get to your dashboard, you will be able to get all the help you need by clicking “Help Me Get Started” on the left of the following screen:


This Setup Wizard will put you through a path that really helps address everything you need to get your site started.  We will get your name and message on your site and we will even recommend a website design that matches your other marketing materials or industry, which means everything can stay consistently branded.  If you’re having difficulty picking a website package, we have an interactive package selector to help.  We’ll ask you some questions that focus in on the website package that really suits your needs. You’ll also be able to set up all the pages you want, your website URL, and the email associated with your site. 

If something comes up while you’re going through the Setup Wizard, you can save at any point.  Next time you come back to your dashboard, you’ll be able get back in to where you left off from the dashboard message center.  Once you’re finished with the Setup Wizard, all you have to do is edit your content in the Website Builder and publish your site!      

Website Checklist

The Setup Wizard is great for those of you just starting up your site, but why stop there?  The Setup Wizard provides the essentials, but our new Website Checklist really helps grow your site.  Your personal checklist can be accessed from both your website dashboard and builder:

The checklist will really help you bring your site to the next level.  This interactive checklist will help you monitor your site and will give you guidance about what to add to your site - like maps, social media widgets and images.  The checklist will also help you easily edit your website keywords and add a guest book to connect with your customers.  It’ll even show the date you completed an item so you can reference it going forward!  This new feature will really help you get the most out of your site.


We really hope that the new Website Setup Wizard and Checklist help to get your site to the next level.  These tools are here to help you continue to grow your business online.  Looking forward to hearing your comments and thanks for your continued support. 

What’s new with your Vistaprint Internet Marketing Tools?

 
 
Hello folks,

Thanks for your continued support and following.  We really appreciate the engagement from all of you.  Your comments have been extremely important in keeping our products updated and fresh.  With some feedback we’ve received, we’d like to announce a few changes that you’ll see as you enter the builder to continue to work on your website.
 
One change you’ll see is an updated feature for PayPal.  For those of you that sell online, you can now offer discounted prices.
 
Use the following steps to start discounting your products:
     1. Access PayPal from the Extras dialogue
     2. Choose “Add a PayPal Shopping Cart”
     3. Enter the price of your product and a discounted amount
 
     4. Click next and check out the discounted price
 
If you’re selling something on your site, like a book, and normally charge $10.00 but want to discount it by $2.00, the product would appear like this:
You can update both new and existing products with this new feature.  If you don’t have a PayPal account, here’s some more information on how to set it up.  No matter how you update, this is a great way to show your customers that they can receive great products or services at a discounted price from your business!
 
Another feature we’ve added to our website extras is a Meta Tag editor.  You can access this through the Extras dialogue as well.
 
 
Meta Tags are HTML snippets that go inside the head element of your website.  To get your Google Site Verification meta tag, you must add your site to your Google account through Webmaster Tools.  By adding the code to your website, you are essentially verifying that you are the owner of your website
   
Lastly, we’ve created an Email Marketing survey to gather more feedback.  If you want to take the survey, you can access it from your Email Marketing dashboard.  There are some great questions in there and we’re really interested to hear what you think.  If you have a few minutes to take the survey, that would be awesome!

We hope that these new features make your website even better than it already is.  Also, we are continuously updating our products, so stay tuned for more articles in the coming weeks. Please feel free to share any feedback you have or thoughts for new features that you would like to see. 

Looking forward to your comments and thank you, for helping us make the tools better for you!
