Haulix Promo Customization Just Got Better


Here at Haulix we are always working to refine and improve our distribution efforts. Over the summer we increased our anti-piracy measures by releasing our automated takedown notification tool, and today we are turning our attention to promo customization to reveal an update your contacts are going to love.

Promos with custom designs are more eye-catching and tend to receive more attention from listeners. Starting today, clients are now able to create customized promos with transparent backgrounds. It may seem like a small change, but it’s one that makes a big difference on screen. 

In order to create you own custom promo with a transparent background, log in to your Haulix account and follow these instructions:

1. Click on Promos

2. When you have your promo selected, click on the Design button

3. In the upper right Design column, click the drop down list and select New…

4. Give your template a name and Create

5. In the right column, click to upload a background image.  You can either use one wide 2000px image that does not repeat or upload a small tile and repeat it.

6. With your background image uploaded, adjust the other colors and check both of the “transparent” checkboxes.

7. Click the Save button

8. Click to Preview your promo

TIP:  Create a semi-transparent header image (870px wide) and upload it. Your background will blend into the header image.
