Overview

Instead of sending images directly to an attendee, you can now have image/video files posted to a branded landing page, also known as a Microsite. When images are posted to a Microsite users will receive their file as a URL LINK which will direct them to the Microsite. This is perfect for generating traffic to a website and increasing the number of impressions for your client. This guide will show you how to get started with using this feature for advertising your brand!
