Here's how you can start creating Linkpages on Beaconstac's dashboard.
Step 1: Go to Linkpages
Select 'Linkpages' in the left panel.
Click on ‘Create Linkpage’ on the top right of the screen. Enter your Linkpage name and click on ‘Start’ to begin.
Step 2: Build your Linkpage
Enter a ‘Title’ and a ‘Description’ for your Linkpage. Also, add a ‘Button title’ and the correct URL for your link below it.
Add an ‘Icon’ or ‘Thumbnail’ of your choice to your button link.
Images with your brand logo can make your page recognizable and reinforce your branding.
Ensure the image size is 500 x 500 pixels with a 1:1 aspect ratio for the best outcome.
Click on ‘Add Link’ to add more links.
By now, your Linkpage should start taking shape on the right side of the screen.
With Beaconstac, you can create a Linkpage with either ‘Standard’ or ‘Advanced’ links. For this tutorial, we will create a Linkpage with standard links.
Step 3: Design your Linkpage
After adding the relevant links, click “Next Step” on the top right of your screen to begin designing your Linkpage.
Here, you can customize the background by picking a color or uploading an image. Select a color from the palette or enter the hex code directly.
You can also change the style and color of the font and link buttons.
NOTE - To make your link buttons stand out, ensure their colors are in contrast to the background.
Click on ‘Next Step’ after you have given your Linkpage the desired look.
Step 4: Set up your Linkpage
Turn the ‘auto-generated’ toggle button OFF if you want to set a custom URL slug to your Linkpage.
Alternatively, let the toggle button be ON to create an auto-generated URL slug.
Click ‘Finish’ after setting up the Linkpage. Your Linkpage is now ready to view!
Note: You can view the Linkpage name, the date created, Linkpage URL, total page views, and much more under ‘Linkpages’ as shown below.
You can always edit, rename or duplicate an existing Linkpage after creating it by clicking on ‘Actions’. Click on ‘Close’ to finish.
NOTE: Linkpages are editable. You can always go back and change the button URLs, customize the design, and toggle the settings even after publishing your Linkpage.
