In order to create a custom blog post, you will need to access your Site Editor.
First, sign in to your CRM at crm.yourelevate.com. You can access the Site Editor from here by clicking 'Edit My Site' on the left-hand navigation panel as seen in the figure below.
Please note: If you have a team or office site, you will instead need to click "Edit..." (your team or office name).
The top of your screen should now read 'Welcome To The Site Editor' which indicates you're in the right spot.
Scroll down on the navigation panel on the left side of your screen and select the option 'New Post' (as seen below) to create a new blog post.
By default, the status of your custom blog posts is set to "save as draft". If you want to work on this blog piece by piece, it's highly suggested you first save it in this format. This way, you can pick up where you left off at a later time.
Make sure to fill in a title and description.
It's also recommended to add a photo visual for best practices.
Tags are optional but may help your users search for your blog.
If you're looking to send something out right away, follow the steps below to publish your post live! Please note: Anything posted to your 'Blog' will be dispersed across your social media platforms. Make sure your blog is complete prior to setting it to a "Published" status.
Change this to 'Published' from the drop-down menu
Click the red 'Create' button to publish your post!
Note: It can take up to 30 minutes for a blog to fully propagate to all of your connected social media pages.
