Getting Started with Recommendations on SmartWeb
Clerk.io’s Recommendations can be installed on any page of the webshop, to help customers find the right products.
With the Setup Guide, you can see which pages to install recommendations on, and which types to use, to get our Best Practice running.
From the main menu start by clicking on Getting Started:
1. Create a Standard Design
The first thing you need to do, is create a Standard Design for your sliders.
You can use the Setup Guide under Recommendations - Create a design for your recommendations sliders - to quickly create a Design that has the same colour scheme and style as your webshop.
Click Publish when you are happy with the styling.
You can easily change this later, under Recommendations - Designs in the left menu.
2. Selecting Which Recommendations To Use
Next, each step of the Setup Guide focuses on a specific page of the webshop.
They contain information about
Why recommendations are important on the page.
Which recommendations types to use.
Where on the page they should be placed.
Click for each type of recommendations you want to use and follow the steps.
Please bare in mind: by only clicking on each block of Recommendations they will turn green as if they were installed - they are not - you still need to click and follow the steps.
3. Inserting Recommendations
After choosing which recommendations to use for a page, you can add them to your webshop.
Inserting only with Embedcodes
SmartWeb only allow an integration with embedcode:
For each type of recommendations, simply copy the embedcode and insert them to the file that generates the relevant page in your webshop.
Click on each type of Recommendations and follow the steps.
Here is an example of how to Add recommendations to your product page:
Click on DONE
Some embed codes require variables like product or category-IDs. In these cases, simply choose Smartweb / Hostedshop from the Choose Platform dropdown, before copying the embedcode.
You can easily change your content later, under Recommendations - Content in the left menu.
After enabling the features, you will be able to see Clerk.io’s RECOMMENDATIONS function on your webshop.
