Creating variants

To make Variants on the campaign page:-

  • On the left-hand side of the campaign editor, near the campaign name, we have a series of three dots " ⋮ ". Post clicking the icon we get a drop-down menu in which we have the clone option available.
  • This will create a copy of the variant available on the campaign and makes the desired edits.

Importing and Exporting data through spreadsheets

On the campaign editor screen, we have an option to directly import the data onto the Rocketium platform through a spreadsheet. We can achieve this by -
  • On the top left corner of the editor screen, we will have an option to Export to spreadsheet with a download symbol - This will give you the exact layout of the spreadsheet with the editable fields to be changed.
  • We can go ahead and change the Images/Videos (By adding publicly uploaded links) and text(Based on variant needs)one after the other in the rows below the first version.
  • Once completed save the sheet and get back to the campaign editor screen.
  • On the bottom right corner of the editor screen, we have a CTA which reads as "Import from spreadsheet"
  • By clicking on this we can import the saved spreadsheet. Further, we have an option if we would like to append to the current variants or replace. Once chosen all the variants will be visible one after the other on the left-hand side of the editor screen

Bulk Voice Over Creation with Text-to-Speech

When you upload a spreadsheet, you can also convert voice to speech, there by powering your videos with evocative voice over without the hassle of audio files. This, as you can see is a great example of a personalized video campaign. Different, named users will be sent the video.
The spreadsheet that will be imported will also have specified columns and text captions (to be made into voice over) as per the scenes. Note - remember to save your file as a .csv file and import it from the right corner Import from Spreadsheet button.
Once you import your .csv file, you will see that the convert speech to text check box appears. Check this box. Next, you can choose from the list of options here on the language, style and voice customization.
Once you hit Apply, you will see that your different versions are ready to be shared - all across the sizes you have chosen too.

Save and Export

Once the creatives are worked upon, We have an option to either save the campaign and edit later/Export later or export the campaign directly. This can be done by the finish CTA at the top left corner of the editor screen, on click we get the drop-down option of the two options.

Manage the Video Campaigns

Once the creatives are saved/exported we can find the campaigns on the campaigns section on the left-hand panel of the campaign product screen.
