🖌️ Finalize the page content

By default, in the old editor, you land on a page where you can add sections to define what content your page should have. All the available sections are easy to use, however, we would like to share details on some. Please check the below info:

As far as the new editor is concerned, you can edit the page content directly from the preview panel.

👉 Let's start with the 'Image with text' block:

Choose an image for your landing page and then define its width, alignment, and destination URL

Now come to the ‘Text’ section and enter data with respect to ‘Header’ and ‘Description’

In case you want to add a button to your landing page, one field is specifically given for the same. Give your button a name and mention the URL, where you want your website visitors to be redirected

👉 Now, let's come to the 'Image' block:

It's pretty much similar to the aforementioned block as it also lets you upload an image of 2mb, adjust the width, add desired URL, and use these formats: .jpg, .jpeg, .gif, and .png

However, the difference lies in the image size. In this block, you can have a bigger image (960 × 480) than the aforesaid block (460 × 345).

In case you want to uplift your profits by promoting your top-selling products or want to introduce the newly-launched ones, the 'Image gallery' block can help your cause. Add a multitude of product images with the utmost ease.

Image uploading condition is as same as the above-mentioned blocks: Keep the size under 2mb and the format in any of these - .jpg, .jpeg, .gif, and .png

However, keep the dimensions small. 300 × 225 is the ideal dimension for this block.

👉 Let's check what 'Text' block has to offer:

If you want to add some engaging or informative content like quotes, statistics, etc. then this block is for you. It allows you to enter text (up to 5000 characters) and also helps you with setting the position, size, and weight.

👉 Learn what we can do with 'Text columns with images' block:

Every brand has its story to tell, and you can tell yours with the 'Text columns with images' block. It has two sections: 'Text' and 'Content'

In the first section, define the header and description, whereas the second one is all about introducing decision makers in an appealing way. Here's how you can do it:

👉 Let's find out what we can do with the 'Product list' block:

This block lets you promote other products to drive sales and reduce the bounce rate.

Assign products: Decide whether you want to show your best-selling products, specific product collection, or some particular products

Conditions: If you select a specific product collection, up to 50 products will be shown, whereas you will be allowed to select up to 20 items in case you want to show particular products. As far as best-selling products are concerned, up to 20 items can be shown.

Items that you've sold in the last 30 days will be considered as best-selling products. If any of your best-selling items have already been purchased by your store visitor, he/she will see other top-selling products as recommendations. In case you’ve not sold anything in the last 30 days, random products will be recommended.
Layout: Specify how many columns you would like to have while showcasing your products.

Note: It can be done only for the desktop version, as the mobile one will have only 2 columns. It is been deliberately so that store visitors get a pleasing mobile experience

Content: Click on the checkboxes to decide what product content you want to show. Also, add an action button and decide its behavior as well.

There are 3 different button types are available: ‘Add to cart button,’ ‘Redirect button,’ and ‘Shopify dynamic checkout button’.

‘Stay on the same page’ and ‘Go to cart page’ are two options you can choose from while deciding the behavior of your action button.

Besides this, you can modify the button name and also select a suitable picker type, which will be shown only when variants of products are available.

Text: Mention what your product list block should be saying by simply entering the desired content in the ‘Header’ and ‘Description’ fields

Color: Decide the colors regarding the sale price and comparison price

👉 Let's try the 'Form' block:

This block lets you increase the number of subscribers, which helps you expand your customer base after proper lead nurturing. You just need to enter details in the given fields like this:

👉 Let's move to the 'Button' block now:

As its name suggest, you can add a dedicated button to your page. Just give your button a name and mention the URL, where you want your website visitors to be redirected.

👉 'Product detail'

This block plays a pivotal role in increasing the GMV (gross merchandise value). You can show hot-selling products on your Shopify store's home page, blogs, collections, and other general pages like 'About us.'

The major difference between 'Product list' and 'Product detail' blocks is that the latter lets store visitors add products directly to their cart. However, the former redirects prospects to the product page upon clicking.

You can add this block up to 20 times. It also lets you change the color of discounted price and actual product price according to your store theme.

If you're using Shopify theme 1.0, you can show/hide this and move its position. In case of Shopify theme 2.0, you can only show/hide it.

Note: This block will disappear as soon as you mark the chosen product 'Inactive'.

👉 Let's test the 'Image with text overlay' block now:

If you want to add a text element along with a dedicated button over an image to grab the attention of your store visitors for a particular purpose, this block is meant for you. It has s sections: Image, Layout, Text, Button, and Color.

All the sections are self-explanatory and easy to use 🤟

This block lets you mention social media buttons on your page, which further helps you to gain more followers. Besides strengthening your online presence, it aids in increasing the sales growth 🤟

You can easily add more social media buttons if required. Simply click on the 'Add logo' option and choose the desired SM platform. Once done, enter the correct link in the given field.
