ContentBuilder Overview Screencast (Video)

 

Transcript

ContentBuilder is a browser-based image editing tool. It allows you to create dynamic, layered content for use in Monetate campaigns.

To start, navigate to the components tab and click content. This will open ContentManager, a central location for maintaining all of your campaign's image, code, font, and location assets. Here you can upload a new image from your computer or use an existing image from ContentManager. Once you have selected an image, click "Edit in ContentBuilder." ContentBuilder will launch with the selected image asset included.

You can use ContentBuilder to build multi-layered content using images, shapes, text, and links. In this screencast we will focus on adding an image and a link.

The image tool allows you to add an image to your canvas and edit the size, opacity, borders, and shadows in the properties panel.

You can add a link to your layer by selecting the "Link" from the "Layers" drop down. You can add your link, alternate text, and URL open preferences in the properties panel. You can also add a CSS class in this step.

Adding a link layer creates a defined area on your image that redirects the visitor to a destination URL when it is clicked. Here we will add a link over the "claim your offer" button that links to the special offer page. Make sure that your link layer is a higher priority than your image layer so that both links will function as expected.

After editing your creative, click the "Save" button. Then, click "Close."

To add your image to a campaign, navigate to the campaign page. Keep in mind, you can only edit new campaigns and campaigns that have not been activated. For this screencast we will add the image to a new campaign.

Start by clicking the "choose" button in the action where you want to add or edit the image. Next, find your image and click "Select." Then, fill in any other optional inputs you want to apply and hit "Create". This will add your image action to the current campaign.
