New free category landing pages!
June 26, 2011
It’s known that category landing pages are a great tool to promote your catalog, run promotions, and provide direct access to specific sub categories and products that yield a good ROI.
Magento is very well prepared for category landing pages and Ultimento 1.6 fully leverages this functionality! We’re really excited to introduce 2 category landing page templates that you can use on your Magento store to boost your sales and conversion rates! Not to mention many of the SEO benefits .
Two column category landing page:
The 2-column category landing page template is ideal if you want to keep the layered navigation and the other items on the left column. Here’s what it looks like:
One column category landing page:
We also wanted to include a 1-column category landing page with a completely different design and layout. Take a look:
The category landing pages include:
- Featured product area
- Nice fade-in / fade-out effects
- Easily extendable to any number of categories (currently setup with 3 sub categories)
- Unique design templates
- CSS3 powered – yet fully cross browser compatible
- Search engine optimized
- Developed for speed!
- Versatile and very easy to customize
- As always – 100% open source
- And more!
I’m sold! How do I use them on my Magento store?
In the latest Ultimento 1.6 these 2 category landing pages get automatically added to your Magento admin back-end via Ultimento’s 1-click auto-installer! Using them is then just a matter of following the quick steps to enable Ultimento’s category landing pages.
If you’re running a previous version of Ultimento, you can still use the new category landing pages . Just check out this section of the post.
