Presented in a beautiful grid format and designed to be embedded into an existing site, this experience allows you to present a variety of assets and calls to action which prompt the visitor to complete a form to access them. Once the visitor has completed a form, they then have access to all the assets presented in the grid. This is a great lead generation experience, presenting a variety of your content marketing assets in a visual "library" format.
We recommend that you receive expert-level ion training before using this Quick Start because it uses advanced rules, custom forms, expert interactive components and expert palette tools. Feel free to contact your customer success manager for a brief orientation if needed.

Here'e a brief orientation to this Quick Start.
The Gated Library page is the first page respondents will see within this experience. Here they will find nine assets that they can download after submitting a short lead generation form. This page includes:
