How to optimize your brand in Ripl
Your branding information can be found in the My brand tab of your Ripl account.
On desktop, the tab is split into two different sections, creative and settings. Read on for tips on optimizing both.
The creative section allows you to pre-set the visual aspects of your branding such as logo, brand colors and brand fonts.
Saving these ahead of time makes future content creation easier because the elements you regularly use will be quickly accessible.
Upload your logo to incorporate them into your posts.
You have the option to toggle the logo on and off. If you decide to keep it on but don’t want it on a particular post, you can remove the logo on a post-by-post basis by double tapping on your logo and selecting "remove for this post".
An easy way to have a consistent look in your marketing is to stick with your brand’s color scheme for your social media content. This is why we recommend saving your brand colors ahead of time.
Ripl makes it easy to use hex colors. When setting up your brand colors, you can enter the hex color of your choice and save it. You have the option to save two colors at a time.
