Custom tab in magento customer account page

The Customer edit page in the admin panel gives details about the customers account information,address,orders etc.

In some scenarios we may need to show our custom module contents related to the customer in a additional tab. To achieve this functionality we need to create a custom module and add our tab.

Step 1: We start with our config.xml file. In this file we are specifying an adminhtml xml layout file and a Block class for our custom module.

<config>
<modules>
<Mydons_Customertab>
<version>0.1.0</version>
</Mydons_Customertab>
</modules>

AIDA stands for Attention, Interest, Desire and Action. It’s the oldest trick in the sales book, but rarely thought about when it comes to eCommerce. The idea is that a sales person should follow these four steps when pitching a product to the potential buyer. In the world of eCommerce, you don’t have your sales person, so this process is (should) be done by your online store.

Attention

Using search engines, in most cases visitors will land on product or category pages. We will concentrate on your product pages within the AIDA process. Once the visitor lands on your product page, you have merely a few seconds to grab his attention. In these few seconds, this visitor will decide weather this is what he was looking for or he’ll move along. We are talking about attention, the first part of AIDA process. In the real world, you’d be trying to catch the attention of the buyer in this step, but online, you already have his attention. All you need to do is make sure you don’t lose it.
