4: Choose step type

Choose between adding a link, an image, a PDF or a text step. A text step will let you add free text and images and design it with basic formatting. Tip: A URL step can include a URL of a video, TED talk, Slidshare and more - and they will automatically be embedded into the Roojoom.

5: Design the cover page

After you've added all the steps you want, it's time to design the cover page. The cover page is the first page people will see when clicking into your Roojoom so make sure it is engaging. Add a visually attractive cover image that is relevant to your topic, and use the introduction to briefly describe the content the reader is about to see. Tip: While Roojoom will automatically add a cover image (when possible), consider replacing it if it is not the most engaging one available to you.

6: SEO - Choose a category & add tags

Click on "settings" to select the right category and add 2-3 tags. This will help people discover your Roojoom on search engines. Tip: To strengthen SEO even further make sure the tags are also mentioned in the title and introduction.

7: Add a Call-to-Action button

A Call-to-Action (CTA) Button is important for driving leads to your website or other business goals. You can choose a text button or upload an image button (recommended). Make sure the button is linked to your landing page where prospects can leave their contact info. Tip: A CTA should call for an action. Use an active voice to tell your readers what they are expected to do. For example: Contact Us; Subscribe to Our Newsletter; Follow Us on Twitter.

Post creation: Share your roojoom

Once your Roojoom is ready, change the privacy status to public or link sharing, and hit the share button to share it with the world! We can't wait to read it :) Tip: To increase engagement, share your Roojoom on all social networks and invite people to comment on the content or start a discussion with people that would be specifically interested in the topic.

The Roojoom widgets allow you to embed your Roojoom directly onto your website where it will open as a lightbox on top of your site. You can easily embed your Roojoom using the HTML code found inside the Share screen. Here is a quick guide. Tip: Try different widgets on different pages to see what works best for your audience.
