Creating Your Content Library

Set up your image library and media library to easily use your marketing assets in your content.

Once you add content, you can promote it through social media, your website, emails, and landing pages.

Good images are more attractive and engaging to prospects. This includes images to use as buttons, social media icons, campaign creatives, banner headers, or assets to embed in your emails, forms and landing pages.

  1. Gather all images you want to use into a single folder
  2. Save that folder into a .zip file (optional - you can also upload images individually)
  3. Go to Content > Image Library
  4. Hover over the blue plus sign on the right side of the screen, then click the Upload Images icon
  5. Upload the .zip file with your images

If you do not have images, you can get content with stock images, such as email templates, from the Content Catalog.

File downloads are a great way to provide value to your prospects. You can also track who downloads your content. This is most commonly done with PDFs, but other file formats will work as well.

  1. Gather all files you want to upload into a single folder on your computer
  2. Save that folder into a .zip file (optional - you can also upload files individually)
  3. Go to Content > Media Library > Actions
  4. Upload the .zip file containing your media files

Note: By default, Act-On will unzip a .zip file and add all contained files to your library. If you would like a file to stay in .zip format, add the .zip file to a folder and then save that folder as .zip before uploading it. 

To use a file in your content, you can choose your media files from Act-On's rich text editors or:

  1. Click the dropdown beside each file and select Public Content URL
  2. Add the public URL as a download on your website and landing pages

Videos are very engaging to website visitors. You can add links to your videos hosted on YouTube, Vimeo, Wistia, etc. and use those in your Act-On content.

  1. Gather all the links to your videos on external services
  2. Go to Content > Media Library > Actions
  3. Add each media link you wish to track

To use videos in your content, you can choose your media links from Act-On's rich text editors or:

  1. Click the dropdown beside each file and select Public Content URL
  2. You can now add the public URL as a download on your website and landing pages
