If you're here, you're probably looking to showcase your work in a more visual and digestible way.

These step-by-step instructions will help you do just that.

Read the brief guide below, or watch our 20 minute Guided Tour video.

 

 

1. An Example Releasd Page

 

First, let's have a look at an example of a Releasd Page (you can see more examples here):

Releasd.com/example

 

You control the branding, layout and content of your Pages, and they work perfectly on any device.

If a recipient clicks the Menu icon in the bottom right corner, they're presented with a handy navigation panel, plus the ability to download as a PDF and view fullscreen (like a PowerPoint).

 

 

2. Logging in to your Control Panel

Go to releasd.com/signin and enter your name, email and password.

Tip: If you haven’t got a Login yet, you’ll need to request one from your account Administrator.

 

 

3. Adding Users

 

Anyone who needs to create or edit a Releasd Page requires their own Login.

Logins are managed from the Control Panel > Users tab.

Just click 'Add a New User' to set access rights and invite your colleagues into the account.

4. Using Brands to Control Logos, Backgrounds, Colours & Fonts

All Pages under a Brand share the same:

  • Logo
  • Background image / colour
  • Fonts
  • Colour scheme

You may want to create a Brand for a client, product line, campaign or event for example. 

 

 

1. Click on the Brands tab

Then click 'Add a New Brand'. 

 


2. Add your look and feel

After giving the Brand a name, edit the header, background and widget settings.

5. Creating a New Page + The Templates Gallery

 

Now you've added a Brand, it's time to create your first Page.

 

1. Click the Pages tab

Then 'Create a New Page'.

 

 

2. Pick a Brand

This will determine the look and feel of your Page.

 

 

3. Start from an editable, best practice Template, or blank canvas

Select from a range of layouts based on use cases like reporting, media relations and new business.

Note: The structure and content of a Template can be easily manipulated in the Builder.

1. Go the Pages tab in the Control Panel

Find your page, then click 'Analytics'.

Best Practice: Are Your Releasd Pages Getting Engagement?​

 

10. Saving Time by Duplicating an Existing Page

 

Once you've created a Page that you're happy with, you can save time by duplicating it.

1. Go to the Pages tab, then click 'Duplicate'

 

 

2. Decide whether to keep the original content, or just the structure

  • Keep the layout: This maintains the structure of the Page, but strips out all of the content (e.g. coverage, stats etc). This is useful for monthly reports for example

  • Keep layout & content: This maintains both the structure and the original content. Useful if you want to tweak a Page for different audiences, for example one for Execs, another for Sales
