Select "Social WiFi" to create/edit your custom splash page. Customers will see the splash page every time they sign into WiFi at your location(s). There are three main steps to set up your splash page; Theme, Sign-In, and Success. You can navigate the Social Wifi page by clicking on the section or subsection you would like to view/edit.
STEP 1 - THEME
Create the general look of your splash page.
- upload a company or location specific logo
- create a page title for the splash page OR you can leave page title blank to only display your logo above the accent line
- Choose a color scheme by setting accent and background color OR you can use a background image
STEP 2 - Sign-In
Customize everything the customer sees below the black accent line prior to the customer signing into your WiFi. Sign In is broken down into two subsections, Content and Authentication. In the content section, you can upload up to three images that will be displayed as sliders as well as customize language on the splash page. In the authentication section, you will choose the methods that users can sign into your WiFi.
Upload up to three images that will display on the splash page. Uploading one file will display as a static image on while uploading 2 or 3 files will display as a slider. We recommend that these images be 418 x 220 pixels in size. To add an image, click on "click to add image" and choose the file you'd like to upload. Images must be uploaded one at a time. You can adjust the order of images by clicking on the up or down arrows. You can delete an image by clicking on the trash icon.
You can also edit the copy that customers see below the slider images and above the authentication options in the "Text" section.
Choose authentification methods customers can use to sign into your WiFi network and opt into your Yelp WiFi marketing. Only offer sign-in methods that you plan to use for marketing. For example, if you only plan to market by email then do not offer SMS as a sign-in method OR check the "Require E-mail" box if you offer SMS. Easily toggle authentication methods on or off by clicking on the switch icon beside each method.
STEP 3 - Success
Customize the content customers see once they have logged into the WiFi as well as set internet usage thresholds.
Once a customer signs into the WiFi you can choose to direct them to a "Connected Screen" containing a message that you can customize as well as links to your social media or to a website of your choosing. Use the "Connected Screen" if you'd like to drive traffic to your social media and use the "Website" if you'd like to drive customer traffic to your website or any other site you'd like to drive web traffic. If "Not Configured" appears under "Social Follow" all you have to do is link your social media accounts by going to your account settings, going to the "Social" tab and entering the links to your social media. Make sure to save any changes before leaving the Social WiFi section so you don't lose your progress.
Thresholds default to unlimited and setting these thresholds is an optional step that can be adjusted. You will want to adjust your thresholds if you are concerned about customer usage on your WiFi network. Thresholds are broken down into three categories; Download, Upload, and Sessions. To turn on a threshold, toggle the switch icon to blue, set your desired limit and then don't forget to press save.
- You can set a limit on the amount of data a user can download or Upload as well as their speed. For a frame of reference, a tv show is typically 300 MB and a speed throttle of 1-2 MBS will typically prevent high resolution streaming.
- Duration: you can limit how long a customer can camp out on your WiFi by imposing a time limit
- Timeout: Will log a customer out of the WiFi if they are inactive for an amount of time that you set. If the user tried to use the WiFi again after they have timed out, they will have to log in again
- Sessions Per Day: If you are setting Duration and/or Timeout limits it might be a good idea to also set session limits. Sessions per day limits allow you to say how many times a day a customer can sign onto your WiFi. So if you set sessions per day at 1 after a customer is signed out due to duration, they would not be able to log back into your WiFi until the following day.
