Using the Muzeboard Tool

Creating Muzeboards is quick and easy – click and drag the items you want to display on your Muzeboard, attach an Inspiration Image to the board and a board description, and click on Save and/or Publish.

To create a new Muzeboard and choose your Inspiration image:

  1. Log in to your Muzeboard.com account
  2. From the navigation menu on the left, under the APPLICATIONS section, click on Muzeboard.
  3. Click on “Create New Muzeboard”
  4. To search your store inventory for products to display on the Muzeboard, under the Products section on the right hand side, enter either a product name, description, SKU number or product ID and the system will display a list of products that match the description.
  5. From the list, you can drag and drop items to the Muzeboard on the left to achieve the design you are looking for.
  6. Once the board is complete, simply click on the green “Save” button above the Muzeboard to save the board to your collection. Choose a name for your board, enter a description, and add any relevant tags. Lastly, upload your Inspiration Image.

You can choose to Publish your board on your website right away, by clicking on the “Yes” button next to Publish, or this can be done at a later time.

An Inspiration Image is a high quality lifestyle image of a completely furnished room. The Inspiration image is tied to the Muzeboard, so while the Inspiration Image displays the look you are trying to create, the Muzeboard itself contains the individual products that are available for sale.

Finding inspiration for your board can be challenging so here are our top 5 websites for free stock images:

  • Pexels  – Offering daily new high-quality photos.
  • Pixabay – Over 1M free stock photos and art illustrations.
  • Unsplash – Free photos, gifted by a community of photographers.
  • Picjumbo – A popular resource for your social media and over 600 high resolution photos for free
  • Gratisography – Free high-resolution pictures you can use on your personal and commercial projects.

Once you have created your Muzeboard, attached an Inspiration Image to it, and added any applicable tags and descriptions, it’s time to publish your board. There is a toggle button to either Save your board and Publish, or Save without Publishing.

While you are working to create the perfect board, you can save your progress without publishing the board. Inside the Muzeboard.com portal, in the board editing section, there are options to either Save and Publish, or just save without publishing.

Tip: if your board has already been published, but you need to make a few edits to it, you can make those edits and click again on Publish, and your published board will be updated with the new changes.

Creating Your Affiliate Account

Your affiliate account will be created automatically when you sign up for Muzeboard.

First things first. You will need to choose a subscription type, so please click on “Continue with Free Subscription”:

 

 

You can now start building Muzeboards. You can search for products, edit boards, arrange products etc.

 

Create as many boards as you would like. The more boards you publish, the more sales commission you will accumulate.

 

 

Your Muzeboards can be published on your website and shared on social media and by email. In all cases, if a purchase is made from all the above channels, it will be attributed back to your store using an affiliate ID that is attached to the board URL once it’s published.

You can always review your Muzeboards on your own website:

To access all information about your Affiliate account, please go to muzeboard.hasoffers.com. Here you will be asked to input your username and password. You should have received a confirmation email from Muzeboard once you created your account with all the information.

 

Please add your billing information into HasOffers. 

You can go to Reports, on the left hand navigation menu and select the Conversion Report option:

When generating a report, make sure you make the necessary changes to the filters in the header, such as choosing the correct date range, report options and filters. All these details will allow you to generate correct and full reports on your account activity.

All purchases related to your Muzeboards should show up here, as well as the status of your orders and your current balance:

 

 

Monthly Invoices are generated during the last week of each month and are paid during the first two weeks of the following month. You can view your account’s invoice details and payment status in your HasOffers dashboard.

Currently an order can have 3 types of statuses: Approved, Pending and Rejected.

Approved –  The order has been submitted by the customer.

Pending – The order is being reviewed. For example, if a customer contacts Home Square to cancel their order but the items have already shipped, Home Square will negotiate new terms with the customer. This means that the purchase could still go through but we are waiting for more information.

Rejected – The order has been canceled by the customer.

If your order status has been marked as Rejected, this means that the order has been canceled by the customer therefore the commission is no longer valid on this order.

If this happens after we have already made the monthly payment to your account, the we will deduct the amount from your next orders. The invalid commission amount will show up negative (eg: -$200)

Shoppable Instagram (Beta)

This is a new Muzeboard feature and it is currently still being rolled out. This is why we added the Beta next to it’s name.

To activate this new feature, please go to Setting -> Applications and activate the Instagram App as shown in the screenshot below. You will also need to log into your own Instagram account to activate the feed.

Next, under Muzeboards, you will find the Shoppable Boards (Beta) section. Here is where you will have two options available:

  1. “Instagram Feed” is where you can upload all of your Instagram images and select the ones that are suitable to create a Muzeboard. Click on  “Check Instagram for New Photos” to load your images.
  2. “Shoppable Board List” is where you can finalize your boards by adding the items and creating Muzeboards ready to share

 

Unfinished boards will be marked with the following message “Finish Your Shoppable Instagram Board”.

Once your board is finished, you can publish it to your website or share it, just like you would do with any Muzeboard.

Under the Shoppable Boards menu option, go to Shoppable Board List. This is where you will find all Instagram images you have converted into Muzeboard inspiration images.

A board that only has an inspiration image, but no products attached to it will be marked with the message “Finish your Shoppable Board” and tagged as Unfinished. See below:

 

Go ahead and click on your unfinished board to start adding products. You can add products to your inspiration image by searching for them by name of product, brand or attribute (red, modern, wood) and dragging and dropping them onto the image.

Once you have gathered all of your desired products, click on Publish to finish and publish your board on your Muzeboard page.

If you would like to see all of your published Instagram inspired Shoppable Boards, click on the “View Boards on Web Store” link from inside the Admin Portal, like in the screenshot below:

You can add this link to your Instagram profile URL to make it easier for customers to access your Web Store.
