Maker UGC Implementation Guide

You can easily add Maker to any eCommerce page with our embeds. There are currently two kinds of embeds - a story embed (ideal for PDPs, landing pages, etc) or a grid embed (a collection of Maker stories, ideal for a UGC campaign).

In this guide, we will go over how to add grid embeds to create a UGC campaign in four simple steps:

  1. Create a new collection
  2. Assign your collection a specific URL
  3. Copy the embed code of your collection
  4. Paste the embed code into your CMS

After your UGC campaign is ready to go, contact your Maker representative to customize your UGC campaign features.

Here's a video demonstration of how to set-up a new collection within Maker and copy the embed code to paste on your site. To follow the step-by-step guides, see below.

1. Creating A New Collection 

The first step to creating a UGC campaign is creating a new collection from your Stories Manager. After logging into your Maker account, click on your profile picture in the top right corner and select Manage Stories from the dropdown menu. 

This will take you straight to the Stories Manager. From there you click on + New to create a new collection.

2. Assign your collection a specific URL

This is a quick but important step: make sure to enter the specific URL where your campaign will reside on your site. This ensures that your UGC stories will get redirected to the right place once approved.

3. Copy Embed Code from Stories Manager  

Once you've created your new collection in Stories Manager, click Copy Embed code on the right hand panel.

Note: The Copy Embed Code link will turn green when successfully copied.

4. Paste the Maker Embed Code into your CMS

Once you're done copying the embed code from Stories Manager, now it's time to add it to your CMS.

Create a new page in your CMS where your campaign will live. Then Paste the Maker embed code in a full width container [recommended] and make sure to Save the edited page

Done! Customize Time

Once you've copy and pasted the embed code of your UGC collection, you can contact Maker to customize the UGC features.

Note: If your campaign page is live, you can test how the embed code looks on your site by simply visiting the page.
