Congratulations, your Baby Diaries app is now
Now let’s set up your Marketplace.
3. Customise Your Marketplace with 6 campaign buttons.
You have a great opportunity to engage with your app users through the Marketplace page of the app. There are six (6) unique 'buttons' in the Marketplace ready for your promotions. Each button is a Campaign that you can use to engage your customers.
You can use these buttons to drive users to your social media pages; eCommerce site; in-store events; trade events; blogs; products or services; promotions; incentives; competitions; educational experiences; FAQs, or even as an additional revenue generator by offering advertising space for your suppliers.
*Important - when setting up your Marketplace it's important to remember that each button in the
Marketplace is referred to as a Campaign.
Follow these 6 simple steps to customise your app’s marketplace with your unique offerings and
you’ll be on your way to monetising your app!
To set up your first Campaign (promotional button) select CAMPAIGN MANAGER from the left column.
Enter the name you’d like to call this Campaign, e.g. “Baby Formula July Special”. It's best to use a campaign name that is easily recognisable to you so that, should you want to use it again in the future, you can quickly find it in what will become a saved list of previous campaigns.
Click ADD NEW IMAGE and select an image for the campaign. Optimal size for the campaign image is 2048 x 2048 pixels.
Now enter the web address where you want to send app users when they click on the image. For example, it could be your online store, your social media page, your blog, etc. Remember to include http:// at the beginning of the web address and test that the link works by clicking “Test Link”.
Click ADD Your campaign is now in your Campaign Manager ready for you to add to your Marketplace at any time.
Repeat this 5 (or more) times adding different offerings or promotions so that all six of your Campaign buttons can be populated in the Marketplace.
Once you have added 6 (or more) campaigns into the CAMPAIGN MANAGER, click on MARKETPLACE in the far left column of the page.
This is where you choose the campaigns you want to run. Click the SELECT CAMPAIGN / CLEAR button for each of the 6 buttons in your marketplace.
Once you select the campaigns you want to run, click the to UPDATE. These campaigns are now live in your app!
