Preparing document for upload

Below we have prepared a step-by-step guide for uploading your documents. But, before you get started, we recommend preparing two versions of your document. A ‘Final version’ and a ‘Demo/preview version’.

Please also note that there are 2 ways to provide your documents to marketers. The first way is to provide a link to your document. We recommend this where possible, especially for file types like Google Sheets, Google docs, Google Slides and Data Studio. The second way is to upload your file to the website.  The instructions are different depending on the way you provide your file.

File Type 1: Final version

The final version of your product file is the one that customers will receive after they purchase it by checking out on the byMarketers website.  

  • If you are providing a link to the document like a Google doc: All your customers will receive the same linked product when they purchase, you won’t want anyone editing this linked document. We want them to be able to view it and make a copy for themselves. You can specify this in the sharing settings
  • If you are uploading a downloadable file for customers, then you can simply upload the completed file to the “Add Product” page, since the original file will not be editable by customers.

File Type 2: Demo/preview version

We strongly recommend preparing a second version of your file, which will be a demo version. This is a version that will be viewable before checkout from the product page. Anyone interested in your product can view this.  

  • If it is a link, you can set the demo file to viewable mode only, so it is non-copyable and non-editable.  In this case, you can provide the full document and it will only be viewable. 
  • If it is a file download, the original document will not be editable, but since you are providing users with a download, you should only provide users with a sample and not the final document.

Step by Step: uploading products as a byMarketers vendor

Adding a product

Step 1: From your Pro Dashboard, select the “Add Product” button

Customizing your product 

Step 2: From the “Add Product” page, you can input a product name to personalize your work. This name is how people will find your product from the search bar, so we recommend choosing a simple name with recognizable keywords. A shorter name will appear better on mobile, but including more keywords can help customers find your product. 

Step 3: Below your product name, you can input a product description to provide information about what the product does, its platform, its ideal user and how to set it up. You can also include media up to ​​512 MB big in this section to give clearer information and instructions.

Adding images 

Step 4: In the Images section, you can select a featured image, which will represent the product.  The featured image will show across the website homepage and category pages. You can also upload some additional pictures to your product gallery, which customers can view from the product pages.

Setting a price

Step 5: Vendors can control how much they charge for products. If you’re unsure of how much to charge, try checking out similar items and seeing what other vendors charge for them.

Adding product files

Step 6: You can upload the final version of your products, either as a link or downloadable file. All links should be viewable and copyable but NOT editable.  Purchasers will receive access to this link to make their own copy.  For files uploaded you don’t need to worry about creating a non-editable version, (since each user downloads their own file and does not get access to the original)

Step 7: The Product Category section allows you to select the type of product you are uploading from a drop down menu. You can select multiple options including Affiliate, Analytics, SEO Templates and Site Traffic Templates, depending on how you categorize the product.  

Adding product attributes

Step 8: Once you have uploaded your product files, you can add details about your product to help customers find it in our marketplace. The File Type drop-down menu allows you to select what file type represents your product, eg: Google Sheets, HTML, Image, Video and PDF etc…

You can select as many types as are relevant for your product.

Step 9: You can then select the Platforms your product works with, selecting options like Amazon and Google Analytics from the drop-down menu.

Step 10: The final part of uploading a product involves selecting your Resource Type from the drop-down menu, such as Budgeting or Email Templates.

Step 11: Once you have completed the Add Product page, select “Add Product” to upload your product or “Save Draft” to save your work to upload at a later date.
