Product Information Management – Take a weight off your shoulder and invest in a product information management (PIM) system to help you better manage localized content as you scale. Be sure you select one that can provide you a repository for not just product information but also content and media. You can do this on BigCommerce using the products section as well as the content media tab. Keep each country’s product and content usage organized and separated using various BigCommerce stores for specific regions. If you want something more centralized and customized, a company like Jasper Studios can help you set up whatever you need.

The best way to perform these audits is to dive into your analytics to get a good understanding of your traffic’s behavior and how it relates back to your site’s design and page architecture.

Google Sheets beat Microsoft to the punch and introduced a Checkbox as one of the Data Validation options. You can go to Insert > Checkbox to quickly create one, and you can customize it by going to Data > Data Validation. I've updated most of the Google Sheets versions of my checklists to use that feature. I hope Excel gets smart and introduces a similar feature some day.
PencilKings is positioning themselves, it seems, as a real alternative to more expensive art schools. They use professional artists to create their material. They call their training “collegiate-level training”. This makes sense because being an alternative to more expensive schools is a good hook. This is also helping gear these artists toward real careers in their craft.

The program runs $11.99/month, $28.75/quarter or $108/year. I’d be curious to see how many people take the quarterly option. I know in my own business, when I offered a quarterly it just didn’t work. Everybody went for the annual plan. Plus, an annual plan would increase lifetime customer value quite a bit. I don’t know the numbers internally, but I’d probably want to test getting rid of the quarterly option and see how it tests out.

If you just have a sales page and want the button to take people to the next page, you choose NEXT STEP. But, if you are taking information from people (email opt-ins or contact info), the action must be set to SUBMIT FORM. Then it will automatically send them to the next step in the funnel. There are also actions to show/hide elements, take people to certain spots on a page, and the option to write in a custom link.

Checkbox Form Object - Use the checkbox form field only if you are wanting to add interactivity to your checklist. The checkbox form field, found in the Forms toolbar, can link to a cell in the spreadsheet without requiring any Visual Basic programming. The linked cell will be a boolean value TRUE or FALSE. Like the drawing objects, working with a large number of checkboxes can get messy.
