Adding rich "stuff" content

There are a few ways you can add stuff.

  • You can upload stuff by clicking “Add my own stuff” in your own stuff page or by clicking “Add new Stuff” from the left hand red toolbar on each page
  • AND You can also add stuff you see on another webpage or blog, simply by dragging the "Zig Stuff" button to your bookmarks bar.
    Drag to bookmark bar
    • So when you see something you want to add to your stuff in ZigAZig, just click the "Zig Stuff" icon in your bookmark toolbar and select the image you want to use.
      Select image
    • We'll open a new ZigAZig window for you and ask you to click to tell us if you want to add this into your "Stuff to have"/"Stuff to do or try"/"Places to go".

    • You can edit the description, add a category and brand and save.
    • It's always a great idea to ensure the product name, place to go etc is specific, as that will help us to search Google and return super quality results to your readers and other users- and that of course increases your monetization opportunity up to five-fold.
    • You've just Zigged Stuff successfully!

To create a blog post for Retailers and Brands, follow these 6 simple steps

Log in and Click "My Blog" in the left hand toolbar from any screen

This will take you to "Manage My Blog" page - Click "Create new blog post"


Step 1

Add your blog post title

Step 2

Upload your feature image (optional)

If you’re copying directly from your blog, just right click on the image on your blog and click "Copy Image URL" (or similar - the exact wording will depend on your browser) and simply paste this into the URL box choosing "Remote URL/image".

Alternatively just upload the image from where you have it saved on your computer.

Feature image screen

This image will appear as thumbnail searches on your blog page in ZigAZig and also in Twitter Card posts, Facebook & Google+ posts etc, if you later wish to post the article to your other Social Media platforms. We’ll also use it in our own Social media feeds, if it we select your article as our featured post of the day.

Step 3

Add your blog post text and images (you can simply copy and paste this directly from your own blog)

You can also add a summary just by clicking on "Edit Summary" (above the main blog article)

Edit summary screen

Step 4

Save as draft

Save as draft

Step 5

Now help people find your blog by adding your "stuff" (i.e. your featured products)

Just add related "stuff" (relevant to your blog) by creating "Stuff to have", "Stuff to do" or "Places to go". Simply do that in the normal way. You can check out how to do that below.

Go back to your ZigAZig blog page and click on the blog which is now in "Draft posts" and click "Edit this post"

Edit post

Scroll down your ZigAZig blog post and now click "Add items" under "Related stuff"- Just click to add the Stuff you wish to appear at the foot of your blog (and to which you want your blog to attach, allowing other users to find your blog when looking at stuff in "Recently Added" and "What’s Hot" pages, as well as from your profile when people follow you)

  • You can do this by viewing your most recent added stuff- we’ll automatically show your latest 5 items of "stuff" and you can simply click to reveal more OR you can just type a keyword and we’ll show your stuff matching the word search.
    Add existing content
  • You can of course add older "Stuff" from anywhere in your "My Stuff" pages, including anything you’ve zapped on your mobile phone in "My Zaps" as well as "Stuff to have", "Stuff to do etc" and "Places to go".

Step 6

You’re now ready to click "Save" and "Submit" (unless of course you want to just save to drafts to make other changes and submit later)

Once submitted, we’ll review your post and drop you an email as soon as it has been published.

We’ll also award "Auto Publish status" to bloggers whose blog post quality is the best, so that those articles are immediately published as soon as you hit the "Submit" button
