NEW Feature Release! Edit/Add Content to your Home page.

Telling your story is one of the most important aspects of your business website.  Within the first few seconds a visitor comes in contact with your site, they should have a clear understanding of what it is your business has to offer. The faster a new visitor can understand your business, the more likely it is for you to convert them into a paying customer.  

Due to this understanding, we saw an opportunity to provide you with new tools to help you 'tell your story'.  You can now add more information about your company right there on your home page.  Also, when adding content here, it is important to include keywords such as the services you offer, locations you exist, products you carry and more.  Adding this content will help boost your SEO (search engine optimization) rankings and search engines like Google will love you for it :) 


Here's how it works:  When your site is created, we will automatically populate this area with content we gather from your Facebook page.  

If that information is not enough and you wish to add more; while in the 'customize' work space of the Sitefly app,  you can edit and add new content.  To begin editing, simply hover your cursor over the field.  When you see the dotted line pop-up, click your mouse to open our text editor tool. 



Once you have opened the editor, you can format your content by changing font styles and size along with colors and alignment.  


Now that you have a more robust home page filled with SEO-rich content, search engines will give your site higher authority when delivering search results to searchers.  

Also, visitors to your site will appreciate you delivering a precise explanation of what exactly it is your business can do for them.  This in turn, will speed up the process in converting new leads into customers.  

As always, we hope you enjoy this new feature.  If you have any further questions please feel free to contact our support team.

Ready, Set, Customize!

     Okay, so you've just created your site with 1-click.  Now, you would like to give your site the look and feel it needs in order to reflect your brands identity.  Here, I will walk you through the necessary steps to customize your site to give it the look you desire. 

Immediately after you click 'preview' from the 'Congratulations' page notifying you your site has been successfully created, you will be directed into the 'Customization' workspace where you have the opportunity to edit your sites 'Title', 'Logo' and 'Colors'.  

To start, lets begin with editing your site's title: 

Step 1:  Edit/Change Site Title

After your site is initially created, the site title that appears is the name of your business as it’s listed on your Facebook page.  If you wish to change the title, simply delete the existing title from the text box and re-enter a new title name.  Then, click ‘Save’.  You will notice the change has been made instantly.

   



If you wish to hide the title of your site completely, simply click the ‘Hide Site Title’ check-box and you will notice the title disappears from the site.  Then, click ‘Save.’


Step 2: Upload/Edit Logo and Cover Photo

Have a different logo you wish to use for your site?  No problem!  

Simply click the ‘Upload new logo image’ button and select a file from from virtually anywhere; Facebook, Instagram, Google Drive, Dropbox and more. 

Once the new image has been selected, our system will automatically replace the existing logo with the new image.




When you’re satisfied with the new logo, simply click ‘Save’ and proceed to the next step, ‘Colors’


Step 3: Colors

When inside the ‘Colors’ tab, you will notice six fields in which a color change can apply.  ‘Background’, ‘Title’, ‘Navigation’, ‘Header’, ‘Text’ and ‘Links’.

To change any color, simply click the box of the item you wish to change.  Once clicked,, you will notice a color picker open up where you can choose a color by dragging the pointer across the screen. 



When your colors have been selected, don’t forget to ‘Save’ your work before exiting the screen as we do not want you to lose your work.

Feedback -- If you have any more questions regarding how to customize your site, please feel free to contact our Support Team.

Thanks!
