We have a new page ready for testing in our new mobile-friendly world! This is your site homepage. Here is an example, for my Low Carb Site -
Start there. Then in the top URL bar of your browser, delete out the "lowcarb" at the end of that URL and substitute your own site "shortname". This is the one-word no-spaces reference to your site that's in your site email address. Examples are
and so on. If you have any trouble figuring out your site shortname, let me know and I'll lend a hand.
My Low Carb example is set up with all the images so you can see what each page will look like when fully populated. As you add in recommended products, social networking links, article featured images, and so on to your own site, you'll see your own site update with the additional items.
This page draws from the actual database. So any changes you make in your admin area immediately go live here.
There are four main things for you to work on here.
1) Every editor now has a short description which goes beneath their main photo. You enter that description in the bio area of the admin area. Please also make sure your image is the full 400x400 square now.
2) Continue to add the featured images to your articles. You can now feature up to 10 articles on your site homepage. Look to choose featured images at the 800x534 size for each one. If you need help, let me know.
3) You have space for 3 recommended products at the bottom of your page. These also get promoted on the channel and site homepage. Fill those in! It's an easy way to make money or to help charity. You can drive traffic to your own books, any products you recommend, or promote charity projects in your topic area.
4) Check your social networking links to make sure they're set up. Facebook and Twitter are incredibly popular. You don't have to like them :). Just use them to market and watch your traffic soar.
Let me know if you have any suggestions for this page or if you run into any problems with it. I look forward to hearing your thoughts!
