We do our best to make building your new website a smooth process but there are a lot of details that need to be covered. We hope the answers to these questions will help you better understand the process.
Can I have a mailing list sign up on my website?
Definitely! All of our websites come with a mailing list sign up so you can invite your customers to join your emailing list. It's optional though so we won't place it on your site if you prefer not to have one.
If you additionally send out marketing pieces by regular mail, we can add that information to your sign up form.
How do I get my products into my website?
Most often our customers enter their own product data using the MightyMerchant Site Manager. Before you begin, we will set up your Site Manager specifically for your business so you can easily enter the data for each of your products on a single screen. For example; pricing, product weights, photos, descriptions, color and size options - we'll tailor the entries to match your needs.
We will show you how to set up your categories and enter your products. In addition, we provide a "fast add" option, that allows you to enter product details for up to 10 products at a time.
For stores with more than 300 products, we can usually set up a data import for you if you can provide your data to us in an Excel spreadsheet. Call us for pricing or to learn more about data import.
How long will it take to complete my website?
The answer to this question will vary depending on the project, but generally it takes three to four weeks. We can give you an estimated timeline for your project, and if you need to have your site completed faster, let us know.
How long will my current website be down while you work on my new site?
Your new website will be developed offline (yoursite.mightymerchant.com) so that your current website will be unaffected. Once you have approved your new site, we will switch the domain to point from the old to the new website.
How many pages can I have?
Unlimited! Using MightyMerchant's Site Manager, you can create new pages for your website anytime.
I'm located in a different state, is it practical for me to use your services?
Sure, the majority of our customers are located out of state. We are used to coordinating your website development with you over the phone and by email.
We do enjoy meeting with our local customers in person, but it's not necessary in order to develop your website.
What is the Site Manager?
Think of the Site Manager as your custom website editing tool. You access your Site Manager using your web browser. When you log in to your password protected Site Manager, you will see a well organized listing of all of the sections of your website, and many management tools that are available to you.
You can edit your product catalog and other pages of your website by just entering text in the fields we set up for you. It's almost like filling out a form - it's that easy.
Other tools you can access from the Site Manager include your online Order Manager, shipping and payments manager, your website traffic statistics, automatic Froogle data feed, and more.
Ask us for a demo of our Site Manager so you can see for yourself how easy it is.
Can I change things on my website?
Yes - not a problem! Using the very easy-to-master MightyMerchant content manager system, you'll be in full control of your site at all times. Add products, write descriptions, put up special promotions – all from your own home or office computer, at any time of day or night.
