Right after you login you can create your newsroom. The name of the newsroom is the first thing users will see on the top left of the page, together with your logo. The name is usually your company's name, or the product you're launching. After that, set up the subdomain: this is the url where your newsroom will be hosted - You can also customise it. Lastly, we also need to know what is the language of your newsroom and the timezone.
What company is behind this newsroom? The information you provide here will create a boilerplate at the bottom of every news release of this newsroom. Here you can recap what the company does and some contact information, such as address, phone number, etc. The online presence is also important: add your website, LinkedIn page, Twitter handle and any social profile that adds value to your newsroom.
Spokespeople's pictures come directly from their Twitter profiles, but you can still change them by clicking on the icon. On each campaign you can rearrange the order of your spokespeople.
There are many ways to customize the design of your newsroom in order to match your online brand. You can upload your logo on a white background, customize the color of the links, upload a background image and even add custom CSS.
The Media Library is the central hub for your files: pictures, videos, documents and audio files. Once your files are in the Media library, you can add them to your campaigns and to your presskits with one click.
You can also add videos from an external source - the most common ones are Youtube and Vimeo. Make sure you set the video as public from the original platform - if you change the visibility right before you add it to pr.co, it may take up to 24 hours for the video to be available.
And that's it!
