Setup Assistant Prototype 2.0

Today I want to show you how the current setup wizard looks like. There’s a little video showing it in action.

Don’t forget: This blog article is part of my journey with the plugin. I’m doing this to do share with my (future) customers what I’m working on. I decided to do this because I read the book Traffic Secrets by Russell Brunson. He thought it was a good idea to document the journey with your own plugin.

Target focus: More visitors

As you know, I’m currently all about building traffic for my plugin: SNIP – Structured Data and Schema Plugin for WordPress. It is available for free in the WordPress.org plugin directory and should of course increase my sales in the future.

Setup Wizard

I have already shown how my setup wizard should look like. Currently I am already in the implementation phase. Here is a quick video of what I currently have:

As you can see, it builds on the current Global Snippet Assistant, but has a few more steps:

  1. The name is requested (which is important for the newsletter entry later).
  2. A picture of me is displayed with a bit of text. Just to build more trust. (Maybe it makes sense to display my photo all the time?).
  3. It asks if the user is a newbie or a professional user. Also important for later differentiation in my target group.
  4. In the next step you see an iPhone with different preview images. This makes it relatively easy to see which schemas produce which rich search results.
  5. In the next step you can select which schemas you need (if there are more than one).
  6. And that’s it.

What comes next

Of course, that’s not all. It is still a prototype. The following is buzzing around in my head:

  • Definitely, I’ll add another step that manually queries data. For example, the social links or the phone number of an organization.
  • For this I need a subscription to a list. After all, users of the free version should eventually run into a sales funnel (according to Russell Brunson).

Beyond that, it would be nice if ….

  • I could improve the whole thing even more. I’m not quite satisfied with the layout yet.
  • And yes… that’s all I can think of right now. Haha
