Creating And Scheduling Your Blog Post
1. Log in
From the back end of your site, you can navigate to the blogs module by clicking Modules > BLOGS.
From the front end of your site, you can set a dedicated login for a specific team member in order to log into the blog area. This is a great way to add Front End Security to your site while keeping the primary site admin secure.
2. Write your blog content
When you’re writing your blog article, don’t forget to include internal and external links, photos, keywords and a good use of your Header texts! These will help improve the layout of your blog, while also improving the site’s SEO.
3. Name your post
Use a catchy headline that sparks interest in the content of your blog. While you’re naming the blog, don’t forget to include the categories that this article would fit into. This will help your customers in navigating the site for specific information later.
PRO TIP: Use keywords in the title of your blog!
4. Schedule your posts
In the “Posting Date/Time” section, select the date that you would like to schedule your blog for launch. You can schedule it as far in advance as necessary, or even within the hour!
If you want to launch your blog immediately after writing it, simply leave these Date and Time fields blank.
And that’s it!
