Readymade for Media

Readymade for Media was developed to supply media companies with everything needed to launch, run and monetize a website—without burdening your IT department. Our pre-packaged components include a best-in-class publishing interface, advertising tools, native video support, personalization, syndication and more.

Advertising

Advertising revenue is core to the media business. We integrate with a variety of advertising networks (from DFP to Nativo to FreeWheel) and offer you complete control over your advertising templates. Place ad units on your pages precisely where you want them.

We give you the flexibility to control your ad placements directly in the CMS. Want to add a second 300x250 unit onto the right rail of your articles? That’s a publishing change. Need to display a new ad size for mobile users? Again, simply a publishing change. Our platform empowers you to deliver on your advertising goals today—and in the future, as display options grow and evolve.

Syndication and SEO

With Readymade, you’ll have the ability to push content to all your channels in a single publishing step. What’s more, our SEO capabilities will allow you to control your metadata and maximize search results.

Whether it's through social, search or other channels, your content is likely to be consumed away from your site. Readymade's out-of-the-box syndication is optimized for Facebook Instant Articles, Google AMP, APIs and RSS feeds. Publish once and watch as your content is transformed into a vehicle for promotion that gets your ideas and brand in front of new and larger audiences.

media-seo-syndication.png

Authentication, Login and Paywalls

More and more media businesses are adding subscription and paywall features to increase revenue. We support this model by allowing users to create an account, log in and view gaed content on your site.

Readymade gives you the ability to create granular subscription products. Gate your content by type, author, section or tag. A publisher can choose whether it’s gated or free at the asset level. When it comes to handling payment processing, we offer custom integrations with Stripe, Braintree, Zuora and others.

Affinity Features and Personalization

Affinity features are a natural extension of an authenticated user experience. They allow your users to bookmark, favorite and follow content on your site once they log in.

You determine which topics and assets are available to bookmark, favorite and follow. With total insight into users' affinity behaviors, you can then define and create audience segments that can serve as the basis for delivering a personalized experience.

Integrations

Third-party services and providers that you use daily will integrate seamlessly into our CMS.

We are partner agnostic. If you have an API, it’s safe to assume we can integrate it in the CMS. In fact, it’s possible that we already have a built-in integration or have worked with your partner in the past.media-personalization.png

media-federated-search-images.png

Permissions and Workflow

A Swiss Army knife of permission systems lets you define roles and control any task in the CMS. Create roles that will allow your SEO agency access to only the SEO metadata fields. Give freelance writers the ability to upload content to the CMS but not edit it. If you can identify the task, you can define the role.

Permissions can be refined down to the most minute level. That allows you the control to determine field views, dashboards and action-levels for each role. You can even control the content types and sites available to specific roles.

media-workflows.png

Multi-Site & Multi-User

Whether you’re local or global, Readymade for Media allows you to host multiple sites from a single CMS. In addition, there’s no limit to the number of users you can allow to have access to your site.

Switching sites is easy and managed from a single access point on your dashboard. There’s no reason to log in and out, nor is there a reason to open a new browser tab. We don’t limit you to a restrictive number of users, and we won’t charge you for additional seats. Even better, our multi-site tools allow your sites to easily share content with each other—meaning you can do more with less.

Rich Text Editor

Readymade features a potent set of writing and communication tools engineered to make editors work faster and smarter. Get all the rich text editing tools you would expect (styling, hyperlinks, alignment, bullets, etc.), as well as the ability to embed tables, images, galleries, videos and pull quotes in a single step.

We added more features built around the workflow of today’s publisher. Track changes and commenting directly in the RTE. Create publishing workflows customized to your publishing model. Drag and drop images and other embeds from your desktop to your story. Set notifications and communicate with your team via a conversations widget.

top-10-screenshots/rich-text-editorCallouts.png

In-CMS Native Video

Take your video storytelling to the next level with a template that makes your video the star but also gives you all the power of our article template.

We put an end to the back-and-forth between your OVP and CMS through an integration with Amazon Elemental. Now publishers can work in just one system. Upload, transcode, edit and publish directly from Readymade. If you’re still married to your existing OVP, we offer integrations with Kaltura, Vimeo, Brightcove and YouTube.

Storytelling Templates

Flexible templates—article, listicle, gallery, quiz and live blog—give you the ability to tell every story imaginable.

More than just a headline and a field for copy, our article template includes separate fields for everything you would expect to find in an article: sub-headline, author, tags, sections, SEO titles and descriptions, and more. Each asset includes a rich data model with all the metadata a publisher needs to power a rich content site.

media-quiz.png

Flexible Page Types

Templates allow you to create your homepage, section pages or other front pages of your site. We know that you get only one chance to make a first impression. That's why we allow you to customize the experience for visitors using our audience capabilities for dynamic personalization.

Curation is not required. Simply create a section and apply that section to an article or any other asset, and your section begins to build itself. You’ll never need to update your tag pages again.

Search

Search is at the core of our editorial experience. Our keyword-driven search is based in Solr, with filters for content type and other metadata associated with it. So, if you’re looking for an article by a specific author, it will take you a total of two clicks to locate it.

If you know how to use Google, you know how to use Brightspot Readymade. There’s no reason to drill down into an endless folder structure or scour your sitemap to find the content you need. Just search for it.

We also incorporate federated search that allows you to search your external content sources (i.e., Getty images, Dropbox files, etc.) directly through the CMS.

Brightspot Readymade is an enterprise-quality platform with all the elements you need to launch your site quickly. WordPress VIP features unlimited options—most created by third parties—but finding, integrating and maintaining those components is complicated and time-consuming. Whereas Readymade users will be up and running with their new website, WordPress VIP users will still be sorting through their options.

Readymade for Corporate

We work with some of the largest companies in the world. We understand the role a corporate website serves and the demands that are placed on it. It needs to scale globally, be optimized for every channel, manage content syndication and, above all else, be responsive when direction changes. This is why we created Readymade for Corporate. Our pre-configured templates and components are the fundamental elements of a corporate website. Our configuration means that you don't need IT involvement. You get only what you need to launch your corporate website and start serving your business.

Roles & Rights

A Swiss Army knife of permission systems lets you define roles and control any task in the CMS. Create roles that will allow your SEO agency access to only the SEO metadata fields. Give freelance writers the ability to upload content to the CMS but not edit it. If you can identify the task, you can define the role.

Permissions can be refined down to the most minute level. That allows you the control to determine field views, dashboards and action-levels for each role. You can even control the content types and sites available to specific roles.

Syndication Options

We make it easy for users to discover your content outside your site via the following: Google AMP for search results, RSS readers and content feeds for affiliate partners.

With Brightspot’s out-of-the-box syndication (APIs/feeds), watch as your content is transformed into a vehicle for promotion and gets your ideas and brand in front of a new and larger audience.

Article

A flexible template gives you the ability to tell any story.

More than just a headline and a field for copy, our article template includes separate fields for everything you would expect to find in an article: sub-headline, author, tags, sections, SEO titles and descriptions, and more.

Photo Gallery

Our photo gallery is an image-based storytelling tool with images, captions and credits, but it also includes fields for a sub-headline, author, rich text editor, tags and SEO title and description.

No need to spend hours researching thousands of plugins to identify one that is stable, won’t break your site and will allow you to do everything you want. We give you the only one that you need—one that’s robust, reliable and saves you time. Build a gallery with default captions and credits from the images you upload, or overwrite them as you wish. The biggest time-saver might be our drag-and-drop UI that lets you reorder your images at will.

Readymade for Intranet

Readymade for Intranet is an out-of-the-box communications platform with all the pre-configured templates and components needed to engage your workforce and increase productivity. Our solution integrates with your other software and services, requires little from your IT department, and can be deployed in weeks, not months.

Authentication and Single Sign-On

Readymade for Intranet offers easy authentication with your existing systems, whether your IT department uses Active Directory, SAML, LDAP or another system.

1-auth-singlesignon_intranet.png

Employee Profiles

Readymade for Intranet provides the ability to create comprehensive profiles for your employees.

Our employee profile template goes far beyond first name, last name and email address. You have the ability to assign titles, roles, biographies and social links. Plus, Brightspot for Intranet includes built-in support for location and employee groups so you can organize your staff geographically and by organization.

2-employee-profile-permissions_intranet.png

Personalization and Permissions

Dynamically customize your intranet experience for employees based on their location, job function, tenure and other factors.

Your employees are unique—and their Intranet experience should be uniquely personalized to their place in the organization. Create roles directly in the CMS, or leverage attributes from profiles in your existing authentication set-up.

An intranet isn’t a one-size-fits-all experience. Use defined personalization modules to serve content that applies only to specific employee audiences. Remind new hires to enroll in benefits programs, notify regional employees of a weather-related office closure, or allow your accounting department to let business travelers know that their expense accounts have been approved.

3-personalization-roles_intranet.png

Corporate Content Types

An intranet contains assets that a website does not. In addition to articles, images and videos, Readymade for Intranet allows you to upload and store documents, presentations, spreadsheets and other corporate collateral.

Readymade for Intranet does more than store your corporate content. It has an added technology that "reads" the content and indexes them so they're easily discoverable through site search.

4-business-content-types_intranet.png

Commenting and User-Generated Content

In addition to a resource site, an intranet is a communication portal between the company and its employees. Because of that we give employees the ability to comment on content. UGC functionality means that employees can submit their own content (copy, images and videos) and site managers can moderate that content.

With Readymade for Intranet, user-generated content is stored as a draft. Site managers can review and, if approved, publish live with one click. There is no copying and pasting from one system into another. The moderation features ensure that nothing goes live until it's reviewed and approved.

5-commenting-ugc_intranet.png

Integrations

Third-party services and providers that you use daily will integrate seamlessly into the Readymade for Intranet CMS.

We are partner agnostic. Authentication managers, corporate calendars and event registration tools are just a few sample integrations available in Readymade for Intranet. If you have an API, it’s safe to assume we can integrate it in the CMS. In fact, it’s possible that we already have a built-in integration or have worked with your partner in the past.
