Step-By-Step Guide to Updating Your Business Information on InstaSites

1. Access Applications Menu:

Hover over the navigation bar to the left of the dashboard and select ‘InstaSites’.

2. Locate Your Website:

Navigate to the 'My InstaSites' tab and find the website you want to update.

3. Access the Editor:

Hover over your chosen website. An icon will appear next to the 'Company Name'. Click on this icon. In the pop-up menu that appears, select 'Edit'. A new tab will open, taking you inside the website editor.

4. Navigate to Business Information:

In the column menu on the left side of the page, click on 'CONTENT'. A slide-out menu will open. Click on 'BUSINESS INFO'. Another slide-out menu containing your original business details will open.

5. Add Another Location (Optional):

At the top of the menu, there is a '+ Add another location' link. Use this if your company has multiple physical locations with distinct information.

6. Update Business Name, Type, and Logo:

The next section includes the 'Business Name', 'Business Type', and 'Business Logo'. To change the business name, simply edit the text. To add or change a logo, click '+ Upload logo' and use the Image Picker.

7. Update Contact Information:

The next section shows your locations and their contact information. Edit a location name by changing the text in the field. Update your phone number and email address by clicking 'Edit' on the right side and clicking 'Save' when done. Add new contact information by clicking '+ Add phone number' or '+ Add an email address'. Delete contact information by clicking the 'X' next to the 'Save' button.

8. Edit Social Media Links:

This section is for your social media links. Change a link by clicking on the icon and editing the address in the field. To hide a link, click on the icon and remove the address in the field.

9. Adjust Business Hours:

The next area is for business hours. Click on the operating days and set the hours below. This uses a 24-hour format. You can also use the dropdown menu to select 'Open 24 hours'. To set different times for different days, click '+ Add Hours'.

10. Change Business Address:

The last section is for the business address. Edit the address in the field provided. This address will show on any Google Maps widgets on the website.

Add Your Own Data Connect Fields

While every InstaSite maximizes the usage of default data fields, as you grow more accustomed to the website editor, you may decide to introduce your own personalized fields.

Note: Editing the website design is best suited for individuals with prior experience. Although the platform provides an option to reverse changes via the top menu, certain adjustments may persist if left unattended for too long.

To initiate the process, it's critical to know where and how to input the information on your website.

Hovering over the business name on the home page prompts a box and a link icon at the top. This icon signifies that the data displayed is directly sourced from your menu content. You'll notice this icon appearing on all images, text boxes, or widgets that pull data from your content library.

Understanding how to distinguish linked content from standard text is vital. Next, we'll demonstrate how to distribute your linked content across the site, using a few examples for clarity.

1. Example 1:

In our first instance, we aim to introduce a line to the website headline that reads, 'Call now (Insert Business Phone Number Here).' Follow these steps:

  1. Open the text editor by clicking on the text box.

  2. Begin your message by typing 'Call Now'. Next, include '{{' to signify an intention to connect data.

  3. A Connect Data pop-up menu will appear, featuring a dropdown to select any information previously added to the content library.

  4. Scroll down until you find 'Phone Number', select it, then click Save.

  5. The text should now display as 'Call now (with phone number)'. To ensure consistency, check that your text color matches the rest by clicking on the color icon in the menu and adjusting it as necessary.

2. Example 2:

For our next example, we'll show you how to add and connect data to a widget by integrating business hours into our footer:

  1. Click on the text box where you want to place your business hours.

  2. As this involves a widget, it needs to be added via the menu. Right-click on the desired area to display a menu.

  3. Navigate to "+ Add", select 'Widget Below', and then click 'More Widgets'.

  4. A new menu will open, displaying an array of usable widgets. Either search for 'Business Hours' or scroll down to the Business category, and select the Business Hours icon.

  5. Now, a default Business Hours widget is present on your page. However, it needs to be linked to your data. Right-click the widget and select 'Connect to data' from the menu.

  6. A familiar data connect menu will pop up. As we chose a specific widget, the dropdown should only contain data for business hours. Choose your hours and click Done.

Bear in mind that the procedure may vary slightly depending on the type of widget and its intended location. You can always right-click any widget to link data by selecting it from the menu.

Note: Website modifications will auto-save after a few seconds. To view how your alterations will appear on the live website, click "Preview" at the top of the page.
