What is Content? How is it different from managing my website?
"Content" or "Marketing Messages" or "Posts" are a separate activity from managing your website because you want your marketing messages to reach far beyond your website, to share them to social media for example.
In many Content Management Systems the 'blog' is synonymous with managing your website however they don't properly account for the purpose of a website for a local business, organization, or group. That purpose is to drive customers, advance a mission or simply engage the community.
Moreover, many Locable customers will use the Content creation, management and distribution capabilities of Locable in collaboration with a website built on another platform.
It's true, Content created in Locable is completely and natively incorporated into the Locable website builder and can be used throughout your site thanks to the Content Feed Component (learn more about adding content to different pages of your website).
Content Types Provided by Locable
To streamline the process of creating content and reduce the "design overhead" we've broken content into 6 types which can be created at any time under the Manage Content navigation option.
You can access your existing content to make edits by clicking Manage Content > Content Library. Likewise, you can access all of the images on uploaded to your account or upload images in bulk by click Manage Content > Media Manager.
Each content type has unique data that is required. For instance, an event requires the most data including a date, time, location, in addition to a title, description, optional image etc.
Is there another content type you'd like to see? Let us know.
