Rolling out the red carpet for new MyAIMStore users

Beginning Monday, March 1, the MyAIMStore websites are offered free of charge to all AIM Members. You may sign up for a new site at the AIM corporate website as well as follow a link to log in to your MyAIMStore. Don’t forget: If you want to change the content of your store, you can always log in by going to https://myaimstore.com/storename/wp-admin (just be sure to replace “storename” with the name of your MyAIMStore).

I would like to thank the hundreds of AIM Members who currently have MyAIMStore websites for their help in ironing out the wrinkles of this revamped service over the past 30 days. Your feedback has been invaluable. And keep it coming! The MyAIMStore sites exist to serve you and your business. If there are ways that we can improve the sites, let us know by emailing myaimstore@aimintl.com.

Thanks again for choosing MyAIMStore for your AIM business. See you around the web!


Question of the week:

How can I check when someone contacts me through my MyAIMStore contact form?

The MyAIMStore contact form uses a comment field to receive contact submissions. When you log in to your MyAIMStore, you will be at the dashboard for your store. On this dashboard is a widget titled “Comments.” If someone has contacted you through your site, their message and information will appear here.

Here’s a tip: If you would like to receive your store contact in your email, go to Settings > Discussion in the left menu bar, and at the Discussion Settings screen, make sure that the box is checked to “Email me whenever anyone posts a comment.”

Updates for week of 2/25:

  • Updated the MyAIMStore Welcome Guide
  • Fixed a bug with the Contact form. You can now submit feedback by going to the MyAIMStore support page.

Using Google Docs as a contact form

There are many creative ways to use free software on your MyAIMStore website. One of the best free software tools is Google Docs, which features online document software that is accessible from anywhere. To use Google Docs, you must have a Google account. Get one by visiting Google’s homepage.

Log in to your Google account and visit docs.google.com. Click on “Create New” in the upper left-hand corner of the screen. Select “Form” from the drop-down menu.

Create a form using the options on the Google Docs page. When you are finished with the form, click “Save.” Then click “More Actions” and choose “Embed” from the drop-down list. Copy the embed code.

Back at your MyAIMStore dashboard, select Pages > Add New from the menu bar at the left side. Give your new page a title (e.g., “Contact”). If you are typing in the Visual editor, switch to the HTML editor. Paste the embed code from Google Docs into the body of the HTML editor. Click Publish.

Whenever someone uses your Google Docs contact form, their information is stored in a Google spreadsheet for easy access. For more information on all the options that Google Docs offers, visit the Google Docs support page.
