Simply follow these 4 steps to get a stunning microsite
First of all, you'll need to have a Fastory account to create experiences. Once you've logged in, simply click on the "+ New experience" button to proceed:
1. Choose a format
You can choose between 3 types of experience: Microsite, Landing Pages and In-App Story Adds.
Read our article to know how to choose between them.
2. Choose a theme
Several public themes are already available in our gallery.
Themes allow you to get different atmospheres for the same content. They ensure design consistency. Note that you can also contact us in order to activate the "Custom Themes" Add-on.
Our pre-created themes are all different and contain:
- animated cover: this is the first screen of your experience. In the background, you'll find a video or a picture. Over it, you can put an animated headline, a logo and a text area;
- colors: each theme has a different color scheme, which will be applied on backgrounds, texts, borders, buttons, etc.;
- effects: effects impact the way texts appear on the experience. Each theme has its own effects;
