Stumped by a term that you've seen somewhere in Uberflip or in our documentation? In this glossary, you can find definitions for Uberflip-specific terminology, as well as for some general terms that you might not be familiar with.
A tool for Flipbooks that automatically creates hyperlinks from URLs and email addresses found in the text. It can also be used to automatically create links on specified keywords using a CSV file or regular expressions, or on Digital Object Identifiers.
The "master" URL for a specific piece of web content (or, in the context of your Hub, an Item). If the same webpage can be accessed under multiple URLs, the canonical URL refers to the primary version, the authoritative URL for that page. Canonical URLs are mainly important for SEO, because search engines see the same webpage with multiple URLs as multiple separate webpages. Specifying a canonical URL for a webpage can help prevent dilution and improve ranking.
A term to collectively describe all the factors associated with how your prospects and customers discover and consume your content. A content experience consists of the environment in which your content lives, how it's structured, and how it compels your prospects and customers to engage with your company. Uberflip Hubs are specifically designed to make it easy to build your own content experiences. For more details about content experience as a concept, see this page.
Content Experience Framework
Uberflip's structure for creating successful, scalable content experiences. It consists of five steps: centralize content, organize content, personalize experiences, distribute content, and generate results. Your Hub are built around this framework, and contain tools to help you perform each step.
The Item to which a Hub visitor's conversion into a lead can be attributed. A conversion takes place when a visitor submits a Form CTA, so we can identify a conversion Item if that Form CTA was associated with a particular Item (for example if it was placed as a gate).
A customized URL that replaces the default co-branded URL for your Hub. Custom Domains are usually used to integrate Hubs with existing websites, primarily for SEO and branding reasons.
Stands for Call-To-Action, a special kind of Tile in your Hub. Uberflip CTAs are designed to drive your visitors to specific Items or Streams, to contact you, or to submit personal/contact information for lead generation. Available in two types: Link CTA and Form CTA.
The Uberflip extensions, add-ins for Google Chrome and Microsoft Outlook that allow you to easily browse and share content from your Hub without leaving what you were working on. The extensions embed Tiles representing individual Items, Streams or whole Hubs into any text field (such as email, blog posts, etc.).
A PDF converted to be displayed in Uberflip's web-based viewer. A Flipbook presents your PDF like an interactive digital magazine or book, and can be enhanced with links, rich media like embedded videos, clippings, page widgets, and more. Flipbooks also enable enhanced metrics on your PDF content, allowing you to track pages viewed and reading completion.
A location in which Flipbooks are stored. Before you can upload a Flipbook to Uberflip, you must first create at least one Folder to contain the Flipbook. Whenever you upload a Flipbook to your account, you choose the Folder to upload it to. Settings for styling, widgets and other options are set at the Folder level, and all Flipbooks within a Folder inherit its settings. Each Folder also has a unique ID and link URL: when shared, the link will always serve up the latest Flipbook published in that Folder.
A type of CTA which contains a text input form. It's designed to collect information from Hub visitors and send it to a Marketing Automation Platform like Marketo or HubSpot. Form CTAs can be used to gate content or can be used for non-mandatory collections like newsletter subscription prompts.
Front End V1 and V2
The technology that powers the elements of an Uberflip Hub that visitors interact with: the home page, the navigation menu, Stream and Item pages, Tiles and CTAs, etc. There are currently two versions of this technology in use: Front End V1, which is the original version; and Front End V2, which is the next-generation version built to be not only faster, but also fully accessible (WCAG 2.0 Level AAA compliant).
To place content behind a Form CTA, prompting visitors to interact with the CTA (and typically submit information) before they can view the content. Gating with CTA is useful for getting the most value out of premium content (like white papers and eBooks) by using it to generate leads.
Predefined and custom groups of users in your Uberflip account. Groups are used to manage permissions in the Uberflip app for your users, typically based on their role.
The main Uberflip interface through which you serve the content experiences you create. Hubs aggregate all of your marketing content into a single, centralized location. Each individual Item of content in your Hub is visually represented by an attractive Tile, and Items are organized into customizable Streams. Hubs can also contain CTAs, while are likewise represented by Tiles that seamlessly integrate with your content.
A single piece of content in your Hub. An Item can be any type of content: blog post, video, tweet, slide deck, Flipbook, etc. Groups of Items are called Streams, and each Item is visually represented in a Stream by a Tile.
A type of CTA which contains a hyperlink. Link CTAs can be used to send visitors to a webpage you specify, including other destinations within your Hub (or other Hubs). They are also useful for giving visitors a way to contact you.
A type of Stream that collects Items from one or more Source Streams, allowing you to curate collections of content for specific audiences. Unlike Source Streams, Marketing Streams combine content from multiple sources and can therefore contain a mix of different types of content.
A variation of the Marketing Stream that allows for hyper-targeted Streams tailored for specific recipients. Sales Streams are hidden by default and can be used to privately share content with prospects, so they're very useful for sales enablement.
A type of Stream that is used to aggregate content Items into your Hub from a variety of sources, such as blogs, YouTube, social media, etc. Once pulled into your Hub, Items can be displayed in your Hub either as part of their original Source Stream, or you can mix together Items from one or more Source Streams to create Marketing Streams and Sales Streams.
A collection of Items, Streams are used to categorize the content in your Hub in various ways. The basic type of Stream is the Source Stream, which is used to pull different types of content into a Hub. Items from Source Streams can be curated into Marketing Streams and Sales Streams, which are customized for specific audiences. Streams can also have CTAs interspersed among the Items.
Keywords which can be applied to specific Items in your Hub, allowing them to be sorted and filtered. Can be used with Smart Filters to automatically sort Items into different Streams. Tags applied to an Item are invisible to Hub visitors.
The visual representation of a single Item or a CTA. A Tile associated with an Item consists of a thumbnail image and a short description, as well as a link to view the Item. Streams are made up of a collection of Items represented by their Tiles, which are displayed as a grid. Tiles are generally of uniform size, but featured Tiles are four times larger than normal tiles.
Uberflip's powerful business intelligence (BI) suite, powered by Looker.
