Best Practices

When you add Spot.IM to your site, you’re pretty much adding an entire ecosystem where your community can grow organically. However, while Spot.IM works perfectly well without any micromanagement from your end, there are still certain things you can do to maximize its value on your site. As in: retaining your users, incentivizing their contribution, and increasing your pageviews.

Here we’ve included some basic tips – ‘Best Practices,’ so to speak – to make sure you’re getting the most out of our partnership.


Customize to your Brand

Make sure to match your Newsfeed and Spot.Im Conversations name, logo, color scheme, and language to your site’s native settings. This will provide your users with the most seamless feel possible while engaging with your site’s content and community.


Double-Check your Implementation

Adding Spot.IM to your site is a simple and straightforward process, no matter what platform you’re using. That being said, code and tech can be confusing, especially if you’re not used to messing with your website’s settings. We’ve set out detailed instructions here about how to properly implement Spot.IM, but in case something just doesn’t seem to be working, feel free to contact our team at any time and we’ll be happy to help.


Check your Moderation Settings

Moderation used to cost time, money, and manpower. We made it one of our key missions to fix that with Spot.IM. Spot.Im’s moderation filters do all the heavy lifting for you – just make sure they’re set up for your site’s needs by logging into your account and heading over to Moderation > Rules.


Engage your Community

Calling attention to new or trending content on your site with our unique Broadcast feature helps circulate your users and also gives them a sense that you’re an active participant, like them. And we’ve noticed that when content creators, editors, and publishers get down into the Conversation itself, it takes our partners’ sites and communities to an entirely new level.
