Lack of programming background is one of the major issues marketers in big companies face. Frequent changes, new products and a lot of announcements are just everyday routine for Hayley Delmare, marketing coordinator in Selkirk.
“All of us just don’t really have any experience with programming or coding and it’s kind of a little bit harder for us to deal with the technology aspects and website design.”
Selkirk is a leading brand of chimney, venting, and air distribution products for the commercial and residential HVAC and hearth industries. As a huge company, they are using eCommerce platforms for selling their products. Magento is one of them.
The adjustments occur on a daily basis and they all must be presented to the clients. The problem is how to publish news and advertisements on Magento without coding. The programmers in the company are mostly dealing with backend of Magento and it is up to marketers to create and publish new pages.
“So, I have experience doing graphic design, but it’s just kind of a whole different world when going to web design.”
Magento, itself offers the option of creating pages but it requires coding and furthermore the user can’t see a preview of the page until it’s published. And then, it could be too late for changes.
“I’ve tried to do the training with Magento and just programming. It’s just hard for me to understand what buttons to do, what code to put in, and how the different categories were.”
Besides this, there is one more challenge. Selkirk, like all other brands, use a specific font. They want their advertisements to be uniformed with the font on the website.
For all these challenges, landing pages are identified as an excellent solution. With landing pages builders, the work becomes even easier. DragDropr is one of them.
