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):
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:
- Background image / colour
- 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.

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.

Showcase live individual posts or feeds from social channels.
Draw attention to comments from media influencers or event attendees.
Showcase product shots, event images or any other supporting imagery in a gallery.
Upload/embed broadcast coverage or promo content which can be played within the Page.
Embed press releases, reports, coverage logs or any Word, PPT, PDF or Excel files.
Include links to other Releasd Pages or any web page.
Add contact information, for example for the team who created the Page.

9. Viewing Page Engagement Analytics
To see how much engagement your Pages are getting, follow the steps below.

Find your page, then click 'Analytics'.

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
