How to Add Media to Your Experience
There are 5 different types of media you can add to your experience:
Images are an easy addition to the experience as they provide a visual representation of what the experience would look like. As they say, a picture means a thousand words. The beauty of the experience can only be explained through a visual representation. You can choose to take the photo live at the spot or you are able to choose a photo you have taken previously.
Videos are a very easy way to demonstrate an experience in the full tour. For example, you can upload a video of the views of the experience you are guiding which allows the explorer to understand. Furthermore it can be used to promo the experience by snapshotting the key moments of the experience; similar to a vlog intro.
Audio is also an important tool that you can implement into your experiences as it will allow you to verbally guide the explorer with the content. This audio can be played while they are partaking the experience and not have to read the content as they are walking. Having a good audio explanation will allow the explorers to take their eyes off the screen and listen to the audio.
Links can also be added for the explorers convenience to lead them to the official website of the experience or could be linked to a YouTube video where they can view similar content that is already existing.
Text can also be added for the explorer to read and to give them an understanding / description of the given experience. The text is written in 'Markdown Language' and can be used to format the text.
The screens where media can be seen are:
- During an Experiences
- Add Media (when creating an experience)
- Edit Media (when editing a previous experience)
Why is having media important?
Media are an essential part of experiences to ensure that the explorers get all the visual triggers needed to go on an enjoyable experience. Adding your Audio Messages and Videos can add personality to your experiences allowing the explorers to more effectively foster a bond over the experience. Text and Images can add visuals and descriptions of each stop, allowing explorers to get a better understanding of the journey they are about to undergo.
This is an example of one of our Super Experiences using a variety of media forms to assist the readability of their experience.
To get your experience approved, there is a minimum requirement of 3 media per stop.
