Congratulations on your new blog with Zibster! Blogging is a powerful branding tool for engaging your customers and potential customers. Your blog can truly become the "heartbeat" of your business when you blog regularly. Below are some guidelines for getting started on your Blog with Zibster.


1. ADD A BLOG POST WITH IMAGES

When you first open your Blog icon in your Zibster account, we recommend creating a post first. This will help you see the main controls you have access to and help you get a feel for working with the blog post editor. This first post can be one you never publish, but just use as a test run.

2. SETTINGS

After you've started to get a feel for how to create a blog post, you'll want to make sure your settings are the way you want them before you start publishing any posts. When you click on the SETTINGS tab, you'll see many different settings you can tweak as needed. Two important settings to look at are how comments are handled and what social media links are available for sharing. You can also choose your time zone and your date and time display, among other settings.

3. BLOG PAGE

You'll control what your Blog page looks like on your Builder tool. Click on the BUILDER tool and then click on WEB PAGES tab to add and customize a blog page.

4. START POSTING & SCHEDULING

After the look of your blog and all your settings have been decided, it's time to start posting! We recommend posting regularly and consistently. There is no "magic" number of posts per month you have to do, just decide on what works best for you, then stick to that schedule.

Something that makes it easier to appear as though you're posting regularly is to schedule your blog posts to post automatically.
