"Go live" checklist

Ready to go live with your Meme Generator? We recommend reviewing the following list before launching and double-checking if you have:

  • All images uploaded are the correct dimensions. Export image files in 2x to ensure none of the images appear pixelated.
  • You have added an example set-up and punchline on the card and have these options selected as input to allow users to change the copy.
  • You have uploaded a list of blacklisted words.
  • If you have a competition and a data capture attached:
    • All your communications (Registration, Winner/s, Everybody Else) are fully set up and ready to send.
    • You have hyperlinked your T&C's to the opt-in-field, which is created in the data capture section of the settings tab.
    • Ensure your Prizes and the awarding rules are set up correctly.
    • If you are using coupons, make sure the coupons created are set up correctly. Check the coupon limits are set, the copy for each screen is right and you have linked the appropriate coupons to your communications.

Then you're ready to go live!

How many background options can I upload? 

You can have as many options as you would like!

When a Meme is created where is it stored?

If you go under the Meme Creations tab you will be able to review and download all Memes that have been created on your card, within this card you will also be able to review the details of the user that created the meme. 

Is there a way to see the number of creations made?

If you click on the card's Settings and then the Analytics tab, you can see a breakdown of stats relating to the card. Alternatively, you can check the number of creations made by clicking on the Meme Creations tab and scrolling down to the bottom.

Can users take photos/selfies in the Meme Generator?

No, they cannot. If you would like users to take photos within your card, check out our Photo Frame card.


Top Tips

  • Create something where your audience is able to alter and input their own text. This creates more engagement as your audience can produce their own meme.
  • If you allow users to input text, make sure to double-check how it will look with longer text inputs. This is so you are able to see and adjust the size of the text box accordingly. This will be necessary depending on the question/information you are asking users to input.
  • You can host competitions using the Meme Generator card. Get users to create the best meme for a chance to get featured on your socials or to win a prize. You could also pick your favourites and display these in a Carousel card or Vote card and get users to vote on their favourites creating more engagement on your Hub!
  • Try to have the location of the text box/es close to or along the borders. This is so if users are able to upload their own image, the text won't cover too much of the image.
  • Select the aspect ratio you wish users to create memes in. This can depend on where you or users will share the creations.
