MARKETING/REPORTS

We are creating a new area in the site builder that will combine much of what is in the marketing area, reports and other misc features. This area will provide quick access to reports, help information and core marketing features such as the blog and mailing list. We plan to grow this area over time. The initial marketing/reports section will include links to the different site builder areas.

UPDATED USER EDIT TABS

We have added an option to try out a new set of tabs at the top of the site builder to get feedback. The new set of tabs provides quick access to the new marketing/reports area as well as direct access to core ecommerce functions for store accounts. It will be easy for customers to switch between the existing tabs and the new tabs.

Edit tabs ( this design is not final - we are still working on it )
With the new marketing/reports tab (shown in preview image), we are providing more direct access to important site builder areas. This includes the new marketing area which should help highlight many of the marketing/site management features that are included with the system.

We want to encourage you to be more proactive in marketing your website. To be successful you need to do much much more that enter keywords, submit your site and wait for something to happen. We want to provide direct access to the tools, information and tips you need to be successful.  Eg how to run a blog, tips for growing your email newsletter and how to use social media marketing.
