Design Canvas Overview

Our design canvas has been set up like most editors however lets walk through how to set up a good looking promotion from scratch! Watch this video or follow the steps below!

Step 1: Choose a promotion type. More info located here and here.

Step 2: After you've chosen which promotion you would like choose the blank canvas template. If you want to completely customize your overlay this is the best option for you.

Step 3: I like to start by adding a nice background image. Once the background of the overlay is highlighted head to the image icon on the left of the design canvas and find an image you'd like to use

Step 4: Say you do not want a background image but just want to change the background color. Highlight the background layer again but this area

Step 5: Next lets add in our social information. These settings are located after the social icons are highlighted in the settings wheel at the top of the design canvas. The same goes for the location of your email settings and the email after sign up feature.

Step 6: If you don't like the social options that are presented automatically head to the "Add Layer" tab on the left, then choose which social integrations you would like to add.

Step 7: Add the promotional copy you would like by highlighting the text boxes and text and heading to the hovering editor you can find all editing tools toward the left

Step 8: Lets add a border to the overlay! In this area you'll find all border options:

Step 9: In that same drop down menu you can change the thickness of the border with this icon and round the edges with this icon

Step 10: Lastly, lets add in our promotional code and post engagement copy. Head to the post engagement tab on your overlay and highlight the coupon area. Then you'll find the settings button appear on the top of the design canvas. Note: If you do not want to present a coupon after engagement but rather a link, please choose this option in the "pick your promotions section".
