What does changing the settings of a live Project do?

Once your ContentAmp Project has been created, there are some settings that can be changed that will only affect new articles being pulled in by your RSS feed or any additional articles manually added by you. Changing the settings of a live Project will adjust the following: 

  • Title - The title of the Project/Publication. This is how the title appears to you. This is not a public facing title.
  • Article Budget - This is not retroactive and will only affect new Articles if changed.
  • Cost Per Click - This is not retroactive and will only affect new Articles if changed.
  • Grace Period - The amount of time the system will wait before starting an article. There is a systematic 10 minute grace period in addition to the grace period you set. For example, if you set a 30 minute grace period the Article will go live in 40 minutes. 
  • Duration - The length of time an article will remain Active and available for Creators to post.
  • UTM Tags - You can update the UTM tag for tracking purposes. 
  • Feed - This field will appear if you have set your Project up with an RSS feed however, you are not able to update the feed once a Project is live. You will need to Stop a Project and create a new one if you would like to run a new RSS feed. 
  • Social Platforms - Change the Social Platforms to which any future Articles will be shared.
  • Targeting - Change the minimum Creator reach and Communities you would like to target for future articles. Please note that changing the minimum Creator reach will increase the Minimum CPC and you will need to adjust this field accordingly.
