Sending a Broadcast

Broadcasts are one of the best, most accessible features that we offer site-runners on Spot.IM. With a broadcast, you can send an instant on-site notification to every single user visiting your site, along with a link to promote specific content. It’s a great way to call your users’ attention to a new piece of popular content or breaking news.

Once there, you’ll be prompted to enter your Broadcast Details. This includes the Title of the notification, the URL of the content you want to promote in the notification, and the custom message that you want included in the notification to give context to your Broadcast.

Then, set the Duration of your Broadcast, which can be anywhere from 5 minutes up to 12 hours. Finally, hit Send Broadcast and you’re on your way.
