How to Optimize Your Shopify Site for Conversions with a Mega Menu
Hey everyone! It’s Laura here with Fluorescent, and today I’m going to show you how to optimize your Shopify site for conversions by using a mega menu to make your products quick and easy to find.
A mega menu replaces your standard dropdown menu and allows you to display multiple columns as well as images to organize your Collections and Products in an intuitive way. This means less clicks for your visitors to find the products they’re looking for, and increases your chances of turning that visit into a lifelong customer!
What is a mega menu?
A mega menu is a type of navigation menu that goes beyond the traditional dropdown menu. It allows you to display multiple columns, images, and other interactive elements, making it easier for visitors to navigate your site and find the products or information they are looking for.
Examples of mega menus
To give you an idea of how a mega menu can enhance the user experience, let's take a look at a couple of examples. Our Stiletto Organic demo shop is a great example of how a health & beauty brand can use a mega menu to organize their product collections. Similarly, our Chic demo beautifully showcases a large inventory of products in a way that is clear and easy to navigate.
Setting up a nested menu list
Before we dive into the steps of setting up a mega menu in your Fluorescent theme, we'll first need to set up a nested menu list in the back-end of your Shopify store. This will allow us to organize your menu options into different levels and tiers.
To do this, log in to your Shopify admin and click on "Online store" and then "Navigation". Here, you'll find your main menu, which is what we use on our Homepage for our top-level navigation. To create the nested menu list, simply add your second and third-tier options under the appropriate parent category.
Linking the menus in your theme
Now that we have our nested menu list set up in the admin, let's take a look at how to link them all together in your Fluorescent theme. First, navigate to your Theme Editor by going to "Online Store", then "Themes", and then clicking on "Customize".
Open up your Header section and click the "Add mega nav" button. From here, you can choose the type of mega menu you want to set up. For example, if you want to set up a mega menu for your clothing category, choose the "Full width mega menu" block.
Next, enter the name of the top-level link (e.g. "Clothing") in the Dropdown parent link field. Use the Column count option to display your menu lists in 1, 2, 3, or 4 columns, depending on your preference. You also have the option to display a feature image, promo text, and call-to-action button within the mega menu.
Once you have customized your mega menu, simply add in your images and any promotional content you want to include and click Save. Repeat these steps for any other mega menus you want to create, such as a footwear mega menu.
Creative ways to organize products and collections
With your mega menus set up, you now have the flexibility to organize your products and collections in creative ways. For example, you can use a mega menu to allow customers to shop by specific categories, such as "Skin Concern" for a skincare brand or "Room" for a home decor brand. The possibilities are endless, and you can tailor your mega menus to best suit your brand and products.
