Getting Started on the Right Foot with CultureSpots
In our last blogpost we told you we’ve made CultureSpots as easy to use as possible. Today we want to prove it to you. Let us walk you through the easy 5 step setup process and help you get started off on the right foot with CultureSpots.
Step 1: Subscribe and Create an Account
Creating an account with CultureSpots only takes a couple minutes. On the CultureSpots website, click ‘pricing’, located on the green banner at the top of the screen. You’ll then be provided with details of all our pricing and plans. Once you’ve chosen your plan click ‘sign up.’ After filling out some basic information and setting up a username and password you will be on your way!
Step 2: Branding
Want to show off your branding with CultureSpots? We can do this for free for you, once you have completed the initial setup. If you want to get this out of the way yourself, press the ‘configure your brand’ button located at the top of the page and add a logo image, header image, welcoming paragraph and your brand colors.
Step 3: Audio Recording and Editing
To record audio, scroll to the bottom of the page on culturespots.com and then press ‘audio recorder beta’ under Help & Support. Click the microphone button on the right hand side of your screen. Once you’re finished recording, press save and the recording will go to your downloads folder.
Editing your audio is just as easy. It’s located right under the ‘audio recorder beta’ button at the bottom of the page at culturespots.com. Simply drag the file you want to edit from your hard drive onto the editing screen. The bar above the editing panel offers you the tools you need to create a more professional sounding recording.
Step 4: Create a Spot
To create a Spot, login to your administrative account on CultureSpots and click the second option, ‘2. Create a Spot.’ Then enter the name of your Spot, a numeric ID, a brief text description, and upload a cover image. Click submit and you’ll be brought to the edit Spot page where you’ll be prompted to upload your audio file if you want to add one. Reminder: Audio is optional, not a requirement for a Spot. Instead of audio, you can connect your visitors to a video, your online store, an event registration page, etc.
Step 5: Create a Tour
To create a tour on CultureSpots, select option three on the landing page, ‘create a tour.’ Give your tour a name, text description and cover image. You’ll then be provided with a QR code that points directly to your tour that you can easily share.
You’ll also see the ‘manage tours’ page option. From this screen you’ll be able to edit your tours, delete them, or archive them, as well as your organize your Spots into your tour.
If you’ve followed the steps, you now have created and launched an audio tour. Easy, right?!
