NOW, LET’S CREATE YOUR OWN BRANDED PORTAL
Now that you have signed up for Famecast, you’ll want to create your own custom branded Portal. Your Portal is a full website that aggregates your online and social presence into an easy place for your fans to find you and keep up to date with your latest news and updates. Your Portal also has your own complete Fan Club Community. Think of it as “your own Facebook” where your fans can come together and interact with you and each other. Just like Facebook, it has Member Profiles, Activity Feeds, Groups, Messaging, Forums (Message Boards) and much more. It also comes with its own Membership Subscriptions where your members can pay for access to different features of your site, get access to your exclusive content and events, and get discounts for your merchandise and event tickets.
STEP 1: CHOOSE A SUBDOMAIN NAME
First, you will select your portal’s subdomain name. This is the subdomain website URL that users will enter in their browser to access your Famecast-powered Portal. Make sure that it is unique to you. So if you use myportal as your subdomain name, your URL that your fans will be able to access your Portal is https://myportal.famecast.site. You’ll also be able to use your own custom domain name in our next release.
STEP 2: CREATE OR UPLOAD YOUR PORTAL LOGO
Now, you’ll be able to choose your Portal’s logo. This logo will appear as your logo on the Portal and will be imprinted on all your default standard merchandise (i.e. t-shirts, caps, mugs, etc.) in your Portal’s E-Commerce Shop. A default option is generated for you which you can select via Use Default Logo or you can customize your logo by selecting Create / Upload Logo and hen click Continue. The Default Logo will be a stylized font version of your subdomain name. We recommend, however, that you upload a graphical logo as this will make your Portal and your Merchandise look a lot better.
You are now presented with the options Create or Upload Logo or Upload Logo. Create or Upload Logo gives you the 6 font stylized options of your subdomain name. Upload Logo allows you to upload your own graphical logo. We recommend that its best to upload your own logo as this will make the Merchandise look much better. If uploading a logo, you should use a transparent PNG graphic with at least 1000 x 1000 resolution if possible (a transparent PNG file shows your image only and is transparent where there is no image).
Once you’ve selected or uploaded your desired logo click on Continue.
STEP 3: ADD HEADLINE AND HERO IMAGE
Next is your Headline and Hero Image. The Hero Image is the main image that will appear on the home page of your Portal and the Headline is a tagline or phrase that will appear on top of your Hero Image on the home page of your Portal.
Enter the your desired headline in the Headline to be displayed text field.
Then click the “+” to upload a picture or image for your Portal’s hero image. The Hero Image needs to be at least 1920 x 1080 in resolution.
Once you’ve selected the desired hero image and headline click on Continue.
STEP 4: ENTER YOUR PROFILE INFO
The next screen is Your Profile. Here you will enter your legal contact information. It is important that you enter this correctly as this legal contact information will be used to pay you. If you do not enter this correctly, you will not get paid and we definitely want to pay you!
This data will never be shared or displayed in your portal. Once all the required fields are filled in click on “Continue”.
