Hands-On with BeRocket Advanced Product Labels
Now, let’s dive in, and I’ll show you how the different features of WooCommerce Advanced Product Labels work.
1. Creating a New Label
To get started, you open up your WordPress dashboard and click BeRocket → Advanced Labels.
Your next step is to add a label. To do so, click the Add Label button beside the Advanced Labels heading at the top of your screen.
BeRocket will now redirect you to an area where you’ll find tools to create a new custom label from scratch.
First, you’ll enter a title for your label. You could write “Sale” or “Bestseller” depending on how you wish to promote your items.
Then, you can choose from the 17 conditions available for your product label. At this point, you can decide if you want to mix conditions using “AND” or “OR” operators.
When creating a Sale label for my product, I selected On Sale as the first condition and Page ID as the second condition. Then I used the AND operator to form a relation between the two.
Next, go to Advanced Label Settings and pick a template you want to use for your label. As you do that, BeRocket will give you options to hide the label on mobile, tablet, and/or desktop. Check the box for the device you don’t want the label to appear on.
You also get to select from 8 content types for the label:
Depending on the option you choose, the plugin will modify the text, background image, and image title of the label. Once done, click Save to create your new label.
2. Modifying a Label’s Style
Not content with the existing style of your label? No problem – you can tweak it through the Style tab in Advanced Labels Settings. Let me show you how it’s done.
First, I’ll create a new label, this time to showcase stock status. Then, I’ll click the Style tab and select a new background color.
There’s a lot of options to play with. You can modify the font size, width, height, border radius, border width, and more for your label.
Two options that stood out to me are Opacity and Shadow effects. Used correctly, these two effects can draw attention to your best deals.
3. Changing a Label’s Position
Another neat option in the Advanced Product Labels tab is Position. This setting allows you to decide between keeping the label in its current position, putting it on the image, or placing it in the product title.
Based on the option type of position you choose, BeRocket will let you adjust the label for the positions left, right, and center.
You can also adjust the padding and margin of the label and rotate it as a part of an A/B test to see if a uniquely positioned label improves your conversions.
4. Using Tooltip
BeRocket Advanced Product Labels also lets you create a tooltip. Also known as a hint or info tip, a tooltip is a graphical UI element that displays a text box containing information about an element when a user hovers over it.
You can create a tooltip for any label to inform visitors about its function or convey what a particular abbreviation stands for. BeRocket allows you to enter the content you want to display and upload a custom tooltip image.
The plugin also lets you decide whether you want the tooltip to appear or close after a delay, whether it should have a dark, light, or translucent style, and more.
Further, you can adjust the tooltip for positions top, bottom, left, and right. Place it wherever you think your visitors are most likely to take notice.
How to Use Timers in WooCommerce Advanced Product Labels
Timers can help create a sense of urgency in your visitors. You probably know how it feels seeing a timer counting down 10…9…8…7… there’s a sudden urge to act before the timer reaches 0.
With Advanced Product Labels, you can set up timers for any products with sale price dates.
To do this, open BeRocket → Product Labels in your WordPress admin area. Then select the addon titled Timer and click Save Changes.
Next, open up Advanced Labels and click Add New Label. Enter the same title as you did while creating a product label, i.e., Sale, and choose On Sale as the condition. Now check the box for Use Timer. Once done, you’ll see various timers on display that you can choose to run on your sale.
The Timer addon lets you pick between large and compact timers. You can also add opacity or shadow effects to a timer, modify its margins, and instruct the Advanced Product Labels plugin to show leading zeros in it.
What’s more, you can change the timer’s style using the same setting as for the label, but any style changes would also reflect on the label as the two elements are interlinked in WooCommerce Advanced Products Labels.
How to Use Gradient Orientations In Advanced Product Labels?
Gradients are a perfect way to stand out with your design. The right gradients also help entice people to impulse buy by evoking their emotional responses to colors.
In Advanced Product labels, you can blend varying shades of vibrant colors and develop unique nature-inspired combinations by using the gradient end & standard colors.
Plus, the plugin lets you choose from gradient orientations like radial, elliptical, and linear to keep things exciting for the visitors.
To access gradient orientations, launch BeRocket → Product Labels in your WordPress admin area. Then select the addon titled Gradient and click Save Changes.
Now go to Advanced Labels and click Add New Label. Then in the Style section, click the box in front of use gradient to see all your options.
You should now be able to choose a gradient start color, end color, angle, and orientation.
And that’s it.
As you can see, BeRocket’s WooCommerce Advanced Product Labels is quite powerful when it comes to creating labels for your products. Although there’s a small learning curve associated with label creation, you should find it easy after creating a few labels for your products.
