‘I Imagine’ Platform
The easiest way to navigate around ‘I Imagine’ is from the My Home page. Some quick links:
Your Website
Replace the logo (optional)
We have created a temporary text logo for you. If you like it, you don’t have to change it. If you do want to change it, follow the steps in this video.
 
Edit Pages
 
Images: You can use the existing images you like but keep in mind that your site will look the same as other people that also decided to keep the same images. If you want to get started really fast, just add your text for now and replace the images with your own over time.
 
Watch this video to learn how to edit images.
 
Text:  You must create your own text for each page. We have provided sample sales copy on some pages. You can use them as a guide. If you don’t change the text your site will be the same as other people that don’t the text. It’s not a ‘huge’ problem but it might impact your SEO because the Google algorithm might recognize the site as a template site and that could result in lower rankings.

Setup Your Domain Name
We offer to do this for you. If you have decided to do this yourself, watch this video to learn how to set up your domain name.
 
WordPress: Edit Settings
Your website is built with WordPress. If you want to work on your site, check out the videos that we have included the admin section of your website: Settings > WordPress Videos. We have also included many WordPress tutorial videos in the website section you are working on so that you don’t have to go looking for the right tutorial video.
 
Note: there are thousands of videos about how to use WordPress on Youtube but they are not always up to date. Our videos are always up to date. Therefore, you should use our videos to solve any issue and only resort to Youtube videos if you need to do something that is not addressed in our videos (this usually means that you want to do something that’s a little unusual – which is fine).
 
Divi Theme / Page Builder
Your website uses the Divi Theme and page builder. It is (in our opinion) the best and most advanced page builder in the world. It enables you to create webpages that have stunning design without learning any coding.
 
The Divi theme is a product from Elegant Themes but you don’t have to spend any money to buy it. We have a developer license with Elegant Themes and this allows us to sell a completed website to you that includes the Divi theme. However, this means that support for Divi will be provided by us instead of Elegant Themes.
 
To get started with using the Divi builder watch these videos or visit the Elegant Themes Youtube channel. If you still need help, contact us in the support section.
Email Marketing
In order to capture email addresses from people that visit your site you need:
 
  • Email opt-in form: This is part of the Divi theme and we have already set it up for you on multiple pages of your website. Watch this video to edit the email opt-in forms.
  • Email marketing service: This is a company that specializes in sending mass emails. You can easily integrate many email marketing services with your website so you are not locked into anything.

We have integrated your website with the Sendinblue email marketing service in order to get you started without doing any work.

The reason we recommend Sendinblue is that is free to use up to 300 emails per day with an unlimited number of contacts. It also includes numerous other important features like a CRM, email automated sequences and many others.
