After you create a Ceros experience, you have quite a few options of where it can ultimately live. This article will help you understand which options are best for your situation and direct you to articles with more information about each option.
Embedding on a CMS:
First, you have the option to embed your experience directly into your CMS. This means you can take the entire Ceros experience and place it directly into a page on your site. Depending on the templates you have set up on your CMS, this could be a smaller experience in-line with other content or result in a full page takeover. To learn more about this process, check out this Educate article on embedding.
If you choose to have your experience living on its own, the format of your URL will typically look something like this: view.ceros.com/my-account/experience-tag. This Ceros experience will behave like its own landing page and does not have to touch your website. You do, however, have the option to mask this URL with a vanity domain that you personally own and manage. This article reviews the process for masking your Ceros experience with your own vanity domain.
The standalone URL option can be socialized in a multitude of different ways. You can link to this experience from your site, through emails, on social media, or anywhere else. When it comes to sharing Ceros via social sites, most users choose to use a free online gif creation tool to capture an engaging, animated portion of the experience to act as a teaser for the entire experience and include that gif in emails and social posts.
You also have the ability to link to your Ceros experience in Instagram and Snapchat stories. To learn more about this process, check out these two articles for Instagram and Snapchat.
Finally, you have the option to export the entire Ceros experience. There are two reasons why you would want to export your content:
- For security or other reasons, your business may restrict you from iFraming externally-hosted content. In these cases, we provide the option to export your Experience code directly from Ceros to host on your own web servers.
- If you would like the ability to view your content offline – like at a trade show or if you’re on the road with shotty wifi – you also have the option to export your content as a Ceros Digital Experience (.CDE). This enables you to still be able to use your Ceros experiences even when you don’t have an internet connection. Check out our Educate article on the Ceros Offline Viewer app.
