Overview

Instead of sending images directly to users in an e-mail, you can now have images posted to a branded microsite. When images are posted to a microsite, users will receive their image as a LINK which will direct the user to the Microsite. This is perfect for generating traffic to branded pages and increasing the number of impressions for your client. This guide will show you how to get started with using this great feature for advertising your brand!
