In Cool Tabs, we have a feature that allows you to set up a custom campaign from our public domain templates. This is a starting point for the creation of campaigns with the same mechanics. So you don't have to start from scratch every time you want to generate a campaign.
In this tutorial, we explain, step by step, how to set up your campaign with the Content Carousel template, which allows you to generate a campaign to display, as a content carousel, text, image and/or video, embedded within a web page, article, post, or any other digital media.
You can easily edit the template to customize the content and design, without any programming knowledge.
Below, you can see an example.
2. Step by step.
2.1. Template selection.
1) Login to your Cool Tabs account.
2) Click on the 'My templates' button, which you will find in the main menu of your campaigns.
3) Once inside 'Template Management', go to the 'Public Templates' tab.
4) Find the template CONTENT CAROUSEL. You can view it by clicking on the magnifying glass icon. Click on 'Use template'. When you do so, a copy will be created in the main list of your campaigns.
We remind you that this system is a starting point for the creation of your campaigns. By choosing this template, you will be creating a copy of a campaign with a landing page, a data form, and a default final screen. You can edit the images and texts of the campaign, the participation form, the final screen for non-winners and those associated with the winning moments, the participation dates, add your legal bases, etc.
5) Access the campaign edition, from the list of 'Your campaigns', by clicking on the edit icon.
2.2. Basic settings.
The template is enabled as a multi-language in Spanish and English. To remove a language or add another one you need, go to Basic Data > Languages tab.
Note that the multi-language functionality is only available with the Diamond plan.
If you are going to add a new language, once you select it, you must save the changes and edit the campaign again.
See the tutorial on How to set up a multi-language campaign.
From the Design section, you can modify the images, colors, and texts of the campaign. Keep in mind that the content carousel campaigns are designed to be embedded on the web. It does not have a landing page or registration form.
- Styles tab. From this tab, you can change the colors and font of the campaign.
- Content tab. You can include your own HTML or opt for further customization, with our advanced customization.
In the Dates section, determine the campaign start date, that is, the day from which it will be visible. And the campaign end date, when it will no longer be visible.
These dates should not be confused with the participation dates. The dates on which users can participate must be determined in the Participation section.
2.2.4. Default final screen.
The default final screen is always displayed to users after viewing the entire carousel.
From the End Screen section, you can customize the message they will see.
See the tutorial on How to configure the final screens.
2.3. Survey configuration.
You can customize the different "pages" of the carousel from the Quiz section.
You can refer to the tutorial on How to configure a campaign to display content in carousel mode.
2.4. Other settings.
2.4.1. Tracking codes.
This type of campaign encourages the average time spent and will multiply the number of page views on your website.
You can track this by including the Analytics tracking code in the campaign, and thus generate page views with each item in the list.
To set up your footprint, see the tutorial How to set up tracking and conversion footprints for a campaign.
2.4.2. Embed the carousel on your web.
Once the campaign is ready, it will be time to embed it, using the content widget we provide you with, on a web page, blog, etc.
Follow the steps in the tutorial on How to set up campaign tracking and conversion codes.
It is important that the widget you copy is the one corresponding to the one on the entry form page.
3. Other specifications.
The functionality to generate or use public templates is only available for Cool Promo or Cool Promo White Label campaigns, included in the Gold or Diamond plans, respectively.
