"Many companies will jump to marketing tactics before defining a clear marketing strategy that’s clearly linked to the business strategy. Without a clear strategic approach, it’s hard to measure a return on investment of marketing activity and spend. I love to help clients clearly define a robust marketing strategy."

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

  • By following these tips, you can make sure you’re noticed on LinkedIn and start building the professional connections you need to further your career.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
