Adding Deliverable Content for your Product
In order to deliver your materials via ProductDyno you will first add them to your product inside ProductDyno.
(Remember: if you have Enabled External Content, this option will be unavailable here)
Your content can consist of audios, videos, images, text, PDFs and Zip files. You can include deliverable content that you have already hosted online or you can upload deliverable content to your linked Amazon S3 or your FTP accounts. See Global Hosting Integrations on how to set these up. Once uploaded, access to these items is protected against unauthorized access - only logged in members can access this content
In this article:
If you have your audio or video already stored online, you can "link" to that from ProductDyno. The access permissions, etc will need to be set so that these files are available via the URL you give, ie they will not be "protected content" within ProductDyno
Add the URL to the MP3 and/or OGG versions of the audio file as already stored online
Add the URL of the video as already accessed online
Or that of the MP4 and/or it's Webm version
Upload with ProductDyno
You can upload your content to your own webspace (Amazon S3 or FTP) when setting up your product. This ensures that access to your content is ONLY available to registered and logged in members of your ProductDyno product. Obviously the only limit on size is set by your Amazon account
You can also link to your hosting via FTP - we recommend you only do this if you are familiar with FTP. The access will be slower and you do need to be sure you have sufficient "capacity" both in terms of storage and access (downloads) in your hosting plan. If you choose this option we recommend you set up a new FTP account exclusively for ProductDyno.
Integrating with Your Online Storage
Global Hosting Integration
First, set up the appropriate integration(s) in your Global Integrations
Amazon S3 (Recommended Option)
You can integrate as many (or as few) Amazon S3 Buckets as you want - for example to have each product in a separate bucket - or all product contents in the same bucket. Give each one a "NickName" so you can identify it within your ProductDyno account. Copy and paste the Key and Secret Key from your Amazon Account. If the buckets don't already exist, ProductDyno will create them. NOTE: This is NOT to access already uploaded content
Your Own Hosting via FTP
We recommend you setup a new FTP account for ProductDyno's exclusive use - with it's own login credentials. ProductDyno will "login" and upload your content to the assigned folder(s). NOTE: This is NOT to access already uploaded content. You should your settings using a file transfer program such as FileZilla. If that program cannot connect using your settings, neither will ProductDyno.
Product Hosting Integration
For each product, you now can select where you want the contents stored.
Just choose which of your Global File Hosting Integrations you want to be used for this product
Once you have set up your storage location options, you can start adding content...
Please note that you can add content that is not completely ready for public consumption by using the "Published" radio button
Just slide this to "off" when you add the content and your members won't see it.
When you are ready to release it and add it to the members' accounts, just slide it to publish the content.
Upload the relevant files
Note: if you upload your audio in only one format first - not doing the other format, maybe because you haven't gotten it ready - then come back to add the other one, be sure to hover over the existing audio and click EDIT to add the same audio in a different format
Note: if you upload your video in only one format first - not doing the other format, maybe because you haven't gotten it ready - then come back to add the other one, be sure to hover over the existing video and click EDIT to add the same video in a different format
When you click on Add Text, a WYSIWYG editor pops up:
Type your text in here. Please note: You will get very strange results if you paste already formatted text here. If you are copying text that is already formatted, paste it into a plain text editor such as Notepad to strip out the formatting. Then copy it again before pasting into ProductDyno Text Editor.
You can add style, formatting,links, bullets, etc to this text
Don't forget to SAVE!
This is for PDFs, ZIPs, etc. You upload the file and give the Link Text that will direct your member to access the file
This can be any code you like - tracking pixels, embed codes for videos from Vidello, etc, etc
Just copy the code you would like added to your product in ProductDyno and paste it into the window:
Don't forget to SAVE!
You also have the facility to add "supporting files" to your product.
Please Note: These files are hosted by us on our Amazon S3 so they will not appear on your server and there is a size limit of 10MB
Here you can upload additional materials such as ZIP, PDF and presentation slides, as well as Audio, video, and images.
REMEMBER: If you are planning on adding your product to a Collection, you have completed the Product Setup for now. CONGRATULATIONS! You can now go set up another product.
