Website Pages

Website pages are extremely versatile; they can basically be anything you want them to be. In Simplero, when you choose to add a new page, you have a bunch of options. Some site pages are pre-formatted for you, like the blog and forum, while others like the content page, you design yourself. This guide will show you a few ways to design a page that is unique and right for your business.

Adding Call to Action Buttons to Turn a Site Page Into a Sales or Opt-in Page

Some people prefer to design their own sales or list opt-in page on their Simplero site directly, instead of using a standalone sales page. This is easy to do by creating a content page and adding a call to action button to it wherever you want.

    • Enter a Label for your button (e.g., "Click Here to Sign Up!").
    • Enter the link you want to send users to (this could be a product sales page, order form, list opt-in, online scheduler, wherever you want them to end up).

    • In the Content options menu, select the Text tab and click the blue Add button.
       
    • Write out the Label for your button (e.g., "Click Here to Sign Up!").
    • Highlight the text and click on the Insert Link icon in the Text Editor.
       
    • Add the Link for the button under URL, or choose it from the dropdown menu.
    • Check Display as button.
    • Check Open in a new window (optional).
    • Hit the Insert button to save your changes.

NOTE: If you don't put a link into the URL section, the button will not be created. If you don't have a link yet but still want to create the button, you can click on the URL section and choose your homepage from the dropdown menu. Then you can go back and add the correct link later.


Designing Your Products Page

We all want our customers to be fully aware of the products we're selling. There are a few ways you can do this on your Simplero website.

  1. You can create a content page and use the featured products section and feature a select few products of your choice.
  2. You can create a sales page for every product or a single sales page that talks about all your products with buttons that link to their order forms.
  3. You can use the pre-formatted product catalog page. This page is determined by your products catalog. From there, you'll be able to add categories and list and unlist products.

Social Media Sharing

We know you and your customers want to share your website on social media. But sometimes those shares don't look the way you want them to, and Facebook prevents users from editing the share. We know this is to protect against the false representation of the shared site, but for legit companies like you, who want their business represented beautifully, this can make things a little harder. But Simplero makes it easy for you to control what image will be in that share, giving you some say in how your website is represented.

All you need to do is follow the steps below:

  1. Select Marketing from your Simplero Dashboard.
  2. Choose Website from the dropdown menu.
  3. Select the Pages tab.
  4. Find the page you want to share and click the blue Editor button next to the page name.
  5. The editor interface screen will open.
  6. Select the Settings tab for that page.
  7. Scroll down to the Search engines and social section.
  8. In the Social sharing image, click the Choose media button

        

  • Choose the image you want to display. Note: The image must be at least 200 x 200 to be accepted by Facebook.
  • Select the blue Save changes button.

To edit multiple pages in a row, or to see which ones have already been updated, you will also find these settings on the very convenient Pages >> SEO tab:

NOTE: If you add the social sharing image and it doesn't appear when you try to share the page on Facebook, run it through the Facebook Sharing Debugger tool and scrape it a few times until the image appears. See below:

Removing a Page

  1. Select Marketing from your Simplero Dashboard.
  2. Choose Website from the dropdown menu.
  3. Select the Pages tab.
  4. Find the page you want to remove and click the blue Editor button next to the page name.
  5. The editor interface screen will open.
  6. Towards the bottom left corner, you will see a grey link that reads"Delete page."
  7. Confirm your request.

Alternatively, delete the page from the Pages table>>Select action dropdown:
