Generate Gated Content Links for Media Assets

AUDIENCE: Administrator, Marketing Users
OBJECTIVES: Learn how to generate gated content links to one or more of your media assets.

You can gate the premium content in your Media library by requiring visitors to register using an Act-On form before accessing the content. When visitors comes to your site and clicks on any of these gated content links, they will be shown the form of your choosing. Once the form is submitted, the visitor will be redirected to the requested document or media URL.

For example, if an anonymous visitor clicks on a gated white paper link on your website, a form that only asks for their name and email address can be shown, once the user provides their name and email address they will be directed towards the white paper.


To gate your media assets:

  • Click on Content, and click Media Files.
  • Hover over your document or media link and click the Down Arrow > Gated Content URL.
  • Click Add and specify the form you would like to be associated with this content
  • Click Create
  • A unique URL is generated which is to be used if you wish to have the content gated
