How to set up an online store

Some time ago I told them about Regnow, a site that facilitates the way to sell products on the Internet for manufacturers, through sites that can function as display windows for product downloads or for sale. Additionally, Regnow also has the possibility to create online stores to facilitate the search and display of products.

This works through Site Builder. Let's see how it works by showing the example of the creation of the egeomate store.

To begin with, you have to be registered with Regnow, and once inside you have made relationships. This is done by looking for manufacturing companies or products and requesting a relationship, If the company accepts then we can promote your products.

But there are also a number of products that do not occupy relationship, These are the ones that in the online store will be displayed as a result of the search by category or keyword.

1 Use the Site Builder

The Site Builder that Regnow has is an online version of this software that allows you to create a store with dynamic content. When selecting it, a panel appears with which we can create pages and accommodate them in a drag-and-drop environment; pretty practical

The help is complete, but basically the order is this:

  • Create the site, configure the properties, choose the template, change the logo. This is done with the top panel.

  • Then the page creation that is done in the side panel (add page) and in each one of them indicates the specific products or searches already existent as the most downloaded, the best evaluated, the column of categories, etc.
  • Also in the left panel is configured the Home, the header, which indicates which pages will be displayed and in what order; you can create links to a specific url and enter html insert.

The following graphic shows the GIS page, with the specific products that we hope will appear displayed, for example Global Mapper 12, As well as if we expect them to have the download button, extract and size of the image.

A complete site could be set up in one hour. If a page looks bad, it is only deleted and made one again; definitely the help is very broad.

4 Upload it to the host

Regnow online store This is the most complicated part, as there is not much to read in the Regnow forums. When the site is finished, we download it with the button that appears above (download); this lowers it compressed in zip. It is a dynamic page, so it only contains php and javascript files plus the necessary images, it is not possible to visualize it unless you go to a site or use a specialized program in site creation.

To upload it, we have a hosting available; It can be done via FTP, with DreamWeaver or directly by the Cpanel file manager.

*** Does not work with a Blogger-type hosting?

*** It also does not work with sites hosted on WordPress.com, but with sites mounted on WordPress in a paid hosting.

*** You have to upload the contents of the folder, not the folder.

*** If you want to upload it as a start page, upload all files and folders in the pubic_html directory; With that, when writing the domain www.yourdomain.com will appear the store.

But if we want to add it as a subdirectory of the existing page, then we create a folder in this same directory (public_html), which can be Downloads; So when you search for the path www.standard.com/store the online store will appear.

*** Depending on the template used, we will have to add the Google Analytics script or Woopra To monitor traffic. If the template does not have a header, it will have to place the code on each php page.

If we additionally want to improve the route, we could create a redirect or subdomain from the hosting administrator, in this case I am using Cpanel. The order that I am giving you is that you believe me Downloads.egeomate.com For the address http://egeomate.com/downloads

As you can see, RegNow has enough products for download in the CAD, GIS, Google Earth / Maps and Engineering area to take advantage of the traffic a site has. Most of them can be discarded as trial versions, also search engine optimization is very robust, so that visitors arrive soon through various products within Whole catalog Of Regnow.
