Toggle to Your Tag

In our efforts to enhance ShopYourWay as a place to build community, we are connecting the pages you manage to your page followers’ recent activity.

Now when you toggle between your profile and different pages, your page’s top navigation bar is streamlined specifically for that page. We’ve gotten rid of individual Messages, Rewards, and Cart tabs, and left what’s really important—Notifications.

When you switch page identities, you’ll now see that at the top menu bar, the only thing that’s on your menu is your page and Notifications.

Go ahead, click on the notifications button. You’ll be directed to your entire page’s recent activity, which is listed by date, and broken further down into follows, likes, and comments.  You can then click on the recent activity to see details, and even find out more info about what’s going on by clicking on “More Details.”

The new notifications is built for responsiveness, and so that you can easily see and access new activity on your page. What’s more is that you’ll even get a little notification about notifications to always keep you updated!

Take Your Tag Page to the Top

Thursday, April 4th, 2013

One of the best ways to create an engaging and interesting page on ShopYourWay is by adding a Hero Ad and Profile Icon to the top of your page.

Doing so will not only unify the page’s content, but it will also attractively display what your page is all about.

It’s a fast and awesome communication tool; as they say, a picture is worth a thousand words!

To help you get started we’ve outlined some guidelines that will make it a cinch!

Hero Ad

The Hero Ad is the large image at the top of your tag page right above your page’s profile icon. To ensure the best visibility and readability for your Hero Ad, please use the following guidelines.

  • The image you use must be at exactly 230 pixels high.
  • The image must also be at least 560 pixels wide, but we recommend that it be 1900 pixels wide for it to look its best.
  • It is best to locate any text within the Hero Ad inside the “safe area” of 768 pixels to ensure 100% visibility for all screen sizes and mobile tablets.
  • If you would like to insert a linked button within the Hero Ad, please use an online image map editor.
  • To achieve the best quality image for your Hero Ad, please upload images as PNG files.

Profile Icon

  • Profile icon images must be at least 230 x 230 pixels.
  • To achieve the best quality image, please upload images as either PNG or JPEG files. 

Please DO NOT:

  • Upload empty images to your tag page.
  • Upload images containing profanity or expletives, nor political, sexual, or other sensitive material.
  • Upload images with QR codes.
  • Upload images containing nonexistent functionalities, including but not limited to play buttons that suggest video capability and close buttons that do not close.
  • Upload images that are inappropriate for age groups under 18.

A Solution to Stay Organized

Tuesday, March 12th, 2013

This week we’ve got a great new update that is sure to keep you organized as you continue to manage your various pages.

PAD1

This feature lets you define a set of pages that are connected to one central page. Once defined, these “sub-pages” will appear on a separate tab on the main page. In addition, each sub-page will have an indicator that tells you what central page it belongs to.

PAD2

The purpose of the sub-pages is to help you stay organized and provide easier access between several similar pages that you are overseeing. It provides a solution to either a chain of stores that are connected to one main store, or a brand or topic with a number of sub-pages.

Another feature that we are launching, which will also help manage store pages, is that each store will soon receive their very own URL. This address will be easier to remember, and will also boost the store’s search engine results.

We hope these new features help improve your page admin experience.

Adding Relevant Holiday Content

Tuesday, March 12th, 2013

Tagging Content

Adding content relevant to the holidays is a great way to boost your page’s exposure. Whenever a holiday approaches, we make sure to promote content for it on our newsfeed.

tagging

When you post an image or video that’s related to a holiday there’s an “Add Tag” option on the bottom of the window. Make sure to always tag relevant content with the correct tags to expose your page.

Note that you can also tag products; just make sure the content you post is interesting and engaging. Remember, it will be exposed to a large number of users on the homepage.

Stick to Top

In other news, we recently extended “Stick to Top” to catalogs so that you can move an important product or story closer to the top of the newsfeed. Doing so will give the item more visibility to page visitors.

One great way to use this is to move the most important stories and products to the top of your page. This will not only ensure exposure, but will help users as they search for the latest and greatest products and stories.

A New Discovery Menu

Tuesday, March 12th, 2013

It’s new, it’s pretty – and it’s all about discovery. Yes, after weeks of hard work we have launched the new site menu, and it’s a whole new experience.

The main purpose of the new design is to help users find content that’s interesting and relevant. We want to expose users to the most interesting and engaging content on the site.

pad1

And this is where you come in. You’ll notice that each category – brands, topics, and catalogs – has a tab of recommendations. Think your page should be in the spotlight? Let us know!

Pages that look great and are consistently updated will get to be on top. So polish up that page, and send us a link if you want some great exposure.

Make Them Notice

Tuesday, March 12th, 2013

If you manage a page, we know how important it is to show the best content first, as it gets seen the most by your page visitors. To ensure that your visitors always see the most relevant content, you can use the “Stick to Top” feature for stories on your page.

To use, simply hover over an item, either one you posted or one posted by users, wait for the pop-up box to appear, and click “Stick to Top.” Sticking a story will move it to the top of the newsfeed. You can stick up to ten stories at one time, and always switch them around with newer content.

To unstick a story, hover over the story, wait for the pop-up box to appear, and click “Un-stick.” Your story with then be moved back to its original spot.

Try it out by playing with the order of stories on your page and watch as the most important items get the coverage they deserve.

Show off Your Catalogs!

Tuesday, March 12th, 2013

We wanted to let you know about a great new feature that lets you put your favorite items into a visual context!

The Cover Image tool is a fantastic way for users, and especially page managers, to take an image, upload it to your profile, and then directly tag items in your catalogs.
This gizmo also allows you to showcase your creativity and favorite items in an actual setting, making the site more interactive and fun to use.

It’s super-easy to use! Go to your Catalogs page, hover over a catalog, and select “Upload Cover Image” from the menu that appears.

PM1

Start by selecting an image to upload (within the parameters of how to “Choose the Right Image”), click “Upload,” then adjust the image size and position. When you are done, click “Set Cover Image” and start tagging the photo.

PM2

To tag the photo, click anywhere on the image, and then select the products in your catalog that go with the picture. When you are finished tagging, make sure to click “Done Tagging” so save.

PM3

You can change, adjust, or replace the cover image of a catalog at any time, which makes it easy to switch things up and personalize your page to how you like it. Checkout some examples:

The Ideal Halloween Batman Costume!

Girls

Sofia’s Cutest Outfits

Thanks and enjoy catalog-making!

Promote Your Page

Sunday, March 10th, 2013

We wanted to let you know about some great new ways to ensure higher visibility for the posts you publish on your page.

When you post an image or a video that’s related to a certain holiday or event, there’s an “Add tag” option on the bottom of the window. Click it, type the relevant tag – e.g. Christmas, Easter, Thanksgiving – and that’s it—you’re done!

Note that you can also tag products, but in most cases they will already have been tagged automatically – so make sure it’s really necessary before doing so.

pagemanager2

You can start using “Add Tags” right now! Holiday tags will be promoted until a day after the holiday itself.

pagemanager1

Important: Please make sure the content is relevant to specific holidays and tags, and that it’s interesting and engaging. Remember, it will be exposed to a large number of users on the homepage.

Also – don’t post too many items at once, as they’ll get lost in the flood. One item every once in a while will be enough.

Measure Your Page’s Performance

Tuesday, March 12th, 2013

We’ve got some very exciting news for you – your requests have been answered and your page is now equipped with a powerful statistics tab. Yup, you can now see how your page is doing and how your users react to it.

Eager to take a look? Go to your page under the admin identity and you’ll notice a new tab called “page stats.” Click on it and see how many visits your page got, how active and engaged your users are, and most important of all, trending topics.

The great thing about the stats tab is that you can gauge if you’re doing things right, or should adjust and change. If the trend is positive, then you’re doing great. If it’s negative, there’s no need to panic, it just means you should try a new approach on the page.

This is just a first step; we have more options and features designed to help you understand your followers better, and manage an awesome page.

PM!
