Asset Folder Use
You can host your downloadable content, such as white papers, case studies, and brochures in our Asset Manager. No more waiting for your IT or Web team to get a new asset uploaded onto your website, simply upload it to Net-Results on your own.
The advantages to having Net-Results host these files for you are two-fold:
- More reliable tracking – if we’re hosting the file, we definitely know when it is accessed, and by which Contact.
- Better reporting – an entire dashboard is devoted to showing you how many times your Assets were downloaded and by which Contact.
How to Upload an Asset
- Navigate to the Marketing Center -> File Manager
- If this is your first time navigating to the Asset Manager, then you will need to enter the domain that was sent with your DNS records in the Asset Configuration tab. Then navigate to the Asset Manager to add your PDFs. For questions on DNS set up, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
- In the Asset Manager, ensure that the Asset Folder is selected. Then, select the blue “upload” button in the upper left-hand corner.
