2 weeks passed since the latest updates. We’ve been working hard to ship the next version with bug fixes and feature updates. The most wanted feature that helps you with starting to build the landing page for Shopify is the “Predefined landing page templates.” Moreover, we released 20+ Shopify landing page templates to the public for different niches.
The second feature that you wanted and waited so long for is the signup form page element with MailChimp. Now you can build Shopify lead sales landing pages quickly and convert better. With the Analytics dashboard, you’ll know how your landing page performs and whether it gets leads.
So, let’s explore in detail the new features and product improvements.
To see the app changes please sign out from your app store and clean the cache of your web browser. After that, log in again to your account store and access PageFly from the App page.
MailChimp integration with form signup page element
Sign up form element was one of the most asked features since the official release of the PageFly Shopify app. We listened to the feedback from PageFly users carefully and decided to prioritize this feature to be available in this version. From now, you can collect the email address of leads on your landing page and connect with the MailChimp service.
The signup form page element has options to edit the text button, the placeholder in the input box and icon. In the image below you can see “Action URL” which you need to insert the Mailchimp list link. For more details on how to use this feature, please read this tutorial.
Blog List page element
Since now you can put a blog list on Shopify page, (let’s say homepage) easily with the PageFly app. This page element can be found in Shopify Category - Blog Posts.
You might be asking, why should I care about blogging stuff? Well, organic traffic from Google or other search engines are free, and when you are producing more blog posts, you’ll get more chances to appear in Google search results.
Simply think that each blog post is a new destination which Google will send traffic to. And when you have the blog post updated freshly on the home page it’s a good “trust signal” to Google bot.
Another thing to think about is when you write blog posts you show that the website is "live" to customers. When they read newly published blog posts, they will have more trust in your brand and your products.
With the default settings of this page element, you can decide whether to show the blog image or not and with what dimension. The blog post information with the data of publishing and author also can be configured via “Show Meta” parameter.
And the final thing is to make sure that this blog list section matches your design - we’ve added one more setting called “Show Excerpt” with its length. You can adjust how many words to display in the single block of the blog post.
Besides this, we can go further with customization option of blog list layout: Vertical or Horizontal. You can quickly adjust the design of this section.
