2. Live website editor
Once you have navigated to Live Editor you will see your new website pre-populated with some nice images. Now it is time to start putting your branding on your website.
For most convenience stores businesses their brand is one of their most valuable assets, and that always starts with a logo.
So get a high-resolution logo and simply upload it. With the Live Editor you can also set your convenience store website’s basic settings. These include:
Your convenience store’s name
The brand color of your convenience store website
The language you want your website to be in
You should get your most appealing business photos and add them to your homepage using the carousel tool. This will dictate which images your customers see sliding behind your logo on your homepage. If you add one photo, then it will be static and won’t slide.
The about section of your convenience store website is going to be important to build trust with your prospective customers. People want to know who is behind the convenience store from which they are ordering, and the About sections are the perfect place to hold this content. Here are some ideas:
When did you start your convenience store business?
Why did you start your convenience store?
What is your mission statement?
What are your values?
Where does your produce come from?
You can add images to this section too.
Now it’s time to add your awesome photos to your gallery. These could include photos of your premises, your items including food offerings, your customers, or anything you want. That’s the beauty of having your own convenience store website, you made the decisions.
Social proof and goodwill are extremely valuable. So get your best customers to give you some quotes you can add to the testimonials section on your new website.
You can add a form to your convenience store website so you can receive messages with questions or feedback from your customers.
No convenience store website would be complete without a map showing where your convenience store is located. Simply flip the switch to turn on your map.
3. Add your menu
Adding your convenience store’s online menu with Flipdish is easy. Add your section headers, food items, images, descriptions, prices, and options sets.
4. Set your opening hours
You can opt to add a section that displays your opening hours with an image in the background.
5. Add your bank details so you can get paid
This is simple but important step. By adding your bank details, payments will be processed as you start to make sales through the website.
6. Link your domain
Doing this will ensure that your Flipdish-powered convenience store website uses your own domain name.
7. Promote your new convenience store website
Once the above steps are complete and your convenience store website is built, you’ll want to promote it to drive web traffic and ultimately make sales. Some simple ways to promote the website include displaying the website URL on your offline and in-store marketing materials, placing it on your social media channels and email or SMS communications.
