If you already have a mobile optimized website, and have created a mobile optimized gallery in Vizlly, your final step is to launch your gallery for travel shoppers to see.
All you need to do is follow the steps below:
Step 1: Register a subdomain for your gallery
If your mobile website is not powered by Vizlly, you will first need to register a subdomain for your gallery.
For this process, you’ll want to go to the person (likely your Webmaster, or potentially a Domain Registrar) who registered the domain for your mobile website.
When selecting a subdomain, you’ll want to choose something simple like gallery.myhotel.com
Step 2: Go live in Vizlly
1. Login to Vizlly, then hover over the Publisher tab and select Mobile Marketing.
2. Here you’ll see the mobile gallery you previously created. Select the gallery you want to launch then click on Go Live.
3. Input the domain for your mobile gallery, then click Next.
4. Repeat the same process for your Tablet website.
-Go to Publisher, Tablet
-Select Go Live
-Input the same mobile subdomain
Step 3: CNAME Update and Adding Gallery Link
The final steps in launching your mobile gallery for the world to see are 1) updating your CNAME to point to our servers and 2) adding a link to your new gallery on your mobile site.
These steps are somewhat technical, but, don’t worry, all of it can be handled by your Webmaster.
To make it easy for you, we’ve drafted an email that you can simply copy and paste and forward over to your Webmaster.
