One of the best features of HNN is our ability to help drive local customers to your HNN website through our “locate a distributor” feature on the HNN Homepage.
We’re proud to announce that Zach has just made this feature even more accurate and easier for potential customers to find your HNN website! We’ve added a “Google Map” to the results page so customers can get a better idea of where each distributor is located. Also, this feature will work for all of the countries which our services are available in. It will also work in countries we’re working on, including India, South Africa, and Malaysia. This will enable us to add new countries to the site more easily, and will help with our roll outs of Mexico, Ireland, and France (among others).
The search box is also much more forgiving, as you don’t have to have a zip code to do a search now… you can even search major metro areas by using the city’s name, such as “New York”, or “London”.
If you’re new to HNN, here’s a brief rundown of how the locate feature works:
1.) New Visitors – we use some fancy code to look up their “IP Address” and then use a third-party service to lookup their city and state. We then find a “local distributor” and place in the “Featured Distributor” section at the top of the page, along with their city prefilled into the “Search for a Distributor” text box. They can either shop directly from the “Featured Distributor” on the homepage, or search for more local distributors and find one that’s closer (if they wish).
2.) Repeat Visitors – Once someone has visited your HNN webiste, we’ll store your information as their “Featured Distributor”, so next time they visit HNN, they’ll automatically see YOU as their Featured Distributor. That way, if they’ve forgotten your HNN username, they can still easily find you from the HNN homepage.
Try our new search now, and then let us know what you think!
