Note - This module is an add-on of Webkul's Marketplace Module. To use this module, you must have purchased and installed Multi-Vendor Marketplace first. 

Using Blog Manager Marketplace Add-On, the admin can allow the sellers to add blog posts and display engaging content, write marketing articles, share views, opinions, stories for driving traffic and promote products. The blog post can be written related to product reviews, shopping tips, shopping experiences, or any interesting information needed to be shared with customers. Using the open comments section, the customers, as well as guest users, can express their views and opinions on the seller blog posts. From the backend, the admin can set preview word limit, configure email notification templates, enable auto-approval, moderate and manage all the blog posts and comments. 

 

Business Value 

Online blogging is one of the best forms of product promotion and marketing strategy. By adding blogs to the marketplace site, the sellers can effectively draw potential customer's attention and generate traffic, leading to more sales.  Blog Manager Marketplace Add-On enables the most effective means of sharing views or opinions on product reviews, shopping tips, news articles, or publish any useful information for the customers. Further, the sellers can learn about the views and expectations of customers by viewing the comments. The extension provides the admin with multiple options to restrict comments and blog posts on the storefront. The admin approval is required for displaying the comments on the storefront added by the customers. 

 

Features 

  • The admin can enable or disable the marketplace blog whenever required. 
  • The admin can set the limit of words to be displayed on a particular blog post on the list view page of blogs. 
  • A seller can add a new blog category.

  • The seller can publish any number of blogs for their products.

  • The sellers can view customer comments added to their blog posts. 
  • Complete blog management- add/edit/delete from the seller’s account. 
  • The logged-in customers can add comments to the seller blog posts. 
  • Guest users can view the blog and can add comments as well. 
  • The admin can fully manage the blog posts and its comments by approving/un-approving or by deleting them. 

 

How Does The Extension Works?

Blog Settings 

After the successful installation of the module, the admin will enable the marketplace blog manager. The admin can set the preview word limit of the blog post. 

 

Admin Moderation

The admin can manage the approval of comments and blogs added from the frontend. If the admin sets the comment and blog approval required to Yes then comment or blog will not be published unless approved from the backend admin panel. Whereas if these fields are set to No then the comments and blogs will get publish without approval. 

 

Blog Email Notifications 

Every time a new blog post or a comment is added, an email notification is sent to the associated admin, seller or customer. For these, the templates can be set in the backend. These templates are added by the admin. The templates are generated for the New Blog Approval Template, Blog Notification Template, Comment notification Template, Comment Approval Request Template, and Comment Approval Template. Every time any of these actions will be performed the email notification will be shared with respective sellers and customers. 

 

Publish Blog Post 

The seller can perform multiple actions if the module is enabled by the admin. The seller will be able to Add New Post, Add New Category, and View All Posts under the Manage Blog section in the seller end. Every post comes under a specific category. The category name and status are needed for creating the new category. While adding the new post the seller will have to choose the associated category then the content details will be added. 

 

Seller Blogs Section

The sellers will view their blogs from the View Post section from the seller end. Whereas the customers will be able to view the blogs of all the sellers by clicking on the View Blog under the header and footer section on the storefront. Also, to view the blogs of any specific seller the customer will click on the view blog link on the product page and the customers can read the complete blog post and can even add comments. 

 

Comments Section 

The module allows the customer to share views by commenting on the blogs. So, the details needed for registered and guest customers separate accordingly. The guest customers will add details like Name, Email, Website, and Comment. On the other hand, for the registered customers the name will be auto-filled and only the website and comment will be added by them.
