Creating Your First Landing Page With Zipify

With Zipify Pages connected to your Shopify account, you’re ready to start designing custom landing pages for your store.

In the Zipify dashboard, go to Pages >> Create Page.

On the next page, you’ll have access to templates or the option to create your own custom page.

Before setting up a new page, let’s look at the types of landing pages provided by Zipify.

Types of Zipify Pages

There are 4 styles of landing pages provided by Zipify. Each have their own purpose and effect when combined with the overall goal of your Shopify store.

Here are the types of Zipify Pages you can create and when you can use them:

  1. Sales Pages. These are standalone pages which are perfect for featuring a single item from your store to increase its sales. Use these pages with a strong Call To Action (i.e. Buy Now) to convert the most visitors into new customers.
    • When to use it? Sales pages are most effective with products on sale, new items, seasonal items, and promotional items. Alternatively, you can use this to highlight a bestseller in your store to drive sales even more.
  2. Landing Pages. These are specific pages used in your marketing strategy to offer additional information or promotional materials for your store. Use these pages to collect leads and nurture your target audience to become future customers.
    • When to use it? If you’re providing a discount coupon, you can use landing pages to provide your coupons in exchange for an email. Additionally, you can use landing pages to send anyone who opens up your email to obtain a free download, seminar sign up, product discount, and more.
  3. Pre-Sell Articles. These are pages that provide visitors more information about a product before they make a purchase. Here you can include the benefits, features, and any other relevant information customers may need before being convinced to buy.
    • When to use it? If you have a new product that requires customers to be educated, these are the perfect pages to create. Alternatively, you can use these pages to give an in-depth look at a product with previous customer testimonials and stories of your products in use.
  4. Booster Page. These are a two-page process requiring an email opt-in and a thank you delivery page. This feature is only available in the Plus Plan.
    • When to use it? If you are using a CRM system, you can integrate your Zipify account and receive live updates whenever someone claims your coupon. Then, you can send those who opt-in through your sales funnel or a thank you page with featured products.

Using Zipify Page Templates

Once you know which type of Zipify pages you want to use, you can choose one of the templates and start building your landing page.

Let’s take a look at creating a sales page using the “New Product Announcement Sales Page” template.

First, click on “Use Template” then give your new landing page a name. You can add tags to help you identify and segment your pages in your dashboard.

After clicking “Create”, you’ll be taken to the drag-and-drop builder where you can begin to modify the template.

Each section, such as the Header, Counter, Shop Buttons, and Footer, can be rearranged and modified by hovering over the top left of the dashboard.

If you don’t want to use the Header and Footer design in the template, you can choose to show the native style from your Shopify theme.

To activate your Shopify theme’s Header and Footer go to SETTINGS >> Layout >> Use theme header/footer >> YES >> SAVE.

After activating your native theme’s header and footer, you can click on the trash can to delete the template’s header and footer. When your landing page goes live, your native theme will be displayed.

Changing any of the elements on the Zipify Pages template is quite easy. All you have to do is scroll over the items in each section and click on the small pencil in the top right corners.

Changing Text Boxes:

Changing Images:

Note: Be sure to add ALT Text to your image — this helps search engines understand your pages better.

When you are satisfied with the changes made to the Zipify Pages template, you can hit “Publish” and your page will go live.

It is possible to upgrade to a plus plan at anytime and if you choose to do so, your account will be prorated in the next billing cycle.

Drawbacks of Zipify Pages

Typically, when you are provided a free trial for a service, you have access to all the features available. With a 14-day free Zipify Pages trial, you only have access to their Basic Plan. Some landing page templates, blog pages, and split tests are only available in the Plus Plan. This is why we recommend signing-up directly on Zipify’s website instead of through Shopify’s App Store. This will give you access to all the features of the Plus Plan so you can check if you need them, without risk thanks to the generous 30-Day Money Back Guarantee.

At the moment, there are only 16 landing page templates available in the Basic Plan.

Also, when you browse the templates, you only get to see how many times the template was used and a few related keywords. It would be nice to see links to case studies or examples as to how these templates have worked (i.e. for 8-figure eCommerce sites).

Final Thoughts on Zipify Pages

There are not many drawbacks to using Zipify Pages because it does provide complete customization without having to hire expensive web developers.

Zipify Pages offers a very easy drag-and-drop page builder and that can be customized with a few single clicks. Perhaps what makes Zipify Pages most exciting is the templates based on what has worked for successful 8-figure eCommerce stores. Copying the style and approach while adding the right alterations to fit your own audience could yield incredible returns.

Overall, we believe Zipify Pages can be of a tremendous help to Shopify store owners, both to boost their sales and improve the user experience. And, since anyone can start with a 14-day free trial or a straightforward 30-Day Money Back Guarantee, there’s nothing to lose and only profits to be made! Just make sure you cancel your subscription if you are not happy with the results.
