Version 15 Features
Free Smart Living Company Membership & Renewal
Version 15 includes a free Smart Living Company Enterprise membership, giving you the biggest discounts on all of Smart Living Company’s products without the monthly $39.95 fee that other members pay. eMerchantClub will pay your membership fee every month for as long as your website is on the current version, hosting payments are up to date and your website is active. With v15, we will also pay your yearly membership renewal fee. Add it up, and this feature alone saves you nearly $400!
This cool marketing tool places a pop-up contact information “grabber” on your website. A few seconds after any visitor arrives on your home page, a box appears and asks them to enter their email address into a simple form. Even if that shopper doesn’t buy anything during the visit, their email address will be stored in your customer database so you can market to them in the future with special promotions, your monthly newsletters, links to your social media pages, and more. This pop-up can even offer them a discount that you determine, which will encourage them to make a purchase immediately.
Facebook Customer Login
Version 15 will add the capability for your visitors to log into your website through their Facebook account. This is simply one of the hottest technological and marketing features on the Web, allowing customers to create a new account on your website in seconds rather than minutes. Remember: The easier it is for a customer to log in to their account or create an account on your site, the more likely they are to follow through with an order and make a purchase.
New SEO Tools You Need
Google, the Web’s biggest and most-popular search engine, made some significant changes recently to its search algorithm. The new Panda and Penguin releases from Google reward websites for continually updating and having rich content. eMerchantClub is dedicated to giving you the tools you need to create the best SEO possible; with Version 15 you have more ability to fine tune your site’s SEO down to the product level with meta tags, keywords, and descriptions. This allows you to create custom SEO, current with the latest updates from the world’s largest search engine. This can improve your search engine ranking, which can in turn bring more customers to your store. You will also notice changes to tableless design with an update to the latest CSS3, as well as an update to robot txt. to help you control what the Google bots see when they scan your website. Search Engine Optimization is absolutely essential for any website, and your online business depends on SEO to attract customers.
Social Sharing Made Easier
Version 15 adds social media buttons to your website that allow you and your customers to share the products you sell right from your website to Pinterest, Google+, Twitter and Facebook. Social media is absolutely the hottest way to market your business; there’s no other marketing that gets you more attention for free than viral marketing!
Deal of the Day Promotion
Another incredible feature added to the Version 15 tool box is the “Deal of the Day” function. This allows you to select a particular product that will be automatically discounted for a 24-hour period, making it your website’s Deal of the Day. The urgency of a one-day special is a great way to get customers to buy now before the offer disappears. You can promote this deal on your website, send an alert to your registered shoppers, and promote it on your social media pages. It also helps your search engine ranking because your website will have new content on a daily basis, plus you can schedule products in advance so your website will have fresh content daily with minimal setup time.
Improved Search Function
Google’s recent search changes have made it impossible to stuff repetitive keywords onto your website pages, which affects any site that relies on keywords to help shoppers find the types products they are looking for. Version 15 gives you an updated search function to accommodate Google’s changes, and this “halo” search helps to deliver relevant results to your curious shoppers. When they type in a word or phrase into your site’s search box, they will see products that contain different forms of that word or concept; for instance, if your customer searches your site by typing “Candle” into the search bar, the delivered results will include products labeled Candles, Candle, Candleholder, Candle holder, and so on. This can increase sales and help your site with Google search engine rankings.
With your Version 15 update, your website will be loaded with the current eCatalogs from Smart Living Company when the digital catalogs become available. Your website will showcase the Fall 2014 and Spring 2015 eCatalogs, and your customers will be able to flip through the pages of these digital books right on their computer screen. When they click a product they like, they will arrive on that product’s description page on your website. All they have to do from there is add it to their cart and check out! You will also be able to email pages from these catalogs to customers to encourage registered shoppers to click and buy.

Some of the features listed above may not be included in your website package. All Non-Big Value Websites are automatically charged the annual update/maintenance fee on June 30th of each year, as agreed to in our Membership Rules. The Social Media update feature was originally set to include Flickr and Instagram, which are restricted to mobile-only platforms. We found it to be in our members’ best interest to forgo links to those social media sites in favor of the widely used Pinterest and Google+ for best performance and applicability on all platforms.
