ion’s interactive content marketing platform includes unlimited access to the Quick Start cloud. Quick Starts are pre-built complete digital experiences that help accelerate the launch of interactive content.
Customers can browse through the Quick Start library within their ion console, download an experience into their console, add content & images, and go live. Customized branding can be applied via a centralized theme that is controlled through a simple drop down menu.
Because the experiences are pre-built, all the logic, layout and links are already created, the resources and time are significantly reduced over designing from scratch and coding.
We currently offer over 100 Quick Starts including a wide variety of types from landing pages, microsite, quizzes, configurators, calculators, assessments, account-based content hubs, interactive white papers, infographics and lots more. Each quick start is categorized as basic, intermediate or expert, and these categories align with the concepts that are covered in our customer training series.
Our customers use the Quick Starts to launch their own interactive content, and for those who want assistance, our professional services team will do it on their behalf. And, the best thing is that these things are not at all set in stone. You can download a Quick Start and use it ‘exactly as built’ by just adding your content and images. Or, you can use it as a jumping off point, adding or removing content and functionality to accelerate the creation of something even more custom than what can be provided in a Quick Start. We use quick starts as a starting point for everything we do in our professional services organization.
“Easy" Quick Starts are designed to be a bit different from the Basic, Intermediate and Expert Quick Starts. Easy Quick Starts can be created & launched in under an hour with little to no training.
Easy Quick Starts are designed for a marketer with no ion training to download it into their ion console, add their content and go live in under an hour.
There are “how to” guides for each easy Quick Start, to help customers who need a quick orientation to navigating around their ion console. The how-to guides are written assuming a customer has never logged into their ion admin console, and so start with the basics. Customers who are already in their console won’t even need to reference the how-to guide at all.
