The Basics

A quick peek at what you can do.

Verst Staff

WELCOME TO VERST!

Thanks for checking us out :)

(For detailed walkthroughs and troubleshooting, please visit our FAQ page.)

You may be wondering what’s possible on Verst. Let’s take a look at some of the simple, elegant formatting options at your disposal. 

*Remember: For the best experience, please use Google Chrome.


THIS IS THE BIT. THE BIT IS YOUR BEST FRIEND.

WITH THE BIT, YOU CAN CREATE HEADLINES (LIKE THIS) AND LISTS WITH BULLETS...

  • 2 tbs powdered sugar
  • 3 lbs bananas, ripe
  • 1 cup milk

OR A NUMBERED LIST...

  1. Mix 1 cup of milk with the 2 tbs of powdered sugar for 5 minutes
  2. Take the 3 lbs of ripe bananas and mash in a separate bowl
  3. Combine the bowls and mix together until it is a uniform consistency and enjoy!

YOU CAN ALSO ADD A QUOTE:

We must let go of the life we have planned, so as to accept the one that is waiting for us.

If you want to compliment your text with a tweet, embedding one is a piece of cake.

If your post starts growing overly long, insert a horizontal line break to add some breathing room.


Another great way to diversify or enhance a post is by uploading a photo from your phone/computer. Or, you can click the magnifying glass to search for one without ever leaving the Verst platform.

Here's an example of a tiled gallery of food:

You can easily make that gallery a slideshow instead:

We also support gifs:


We also support a ton of third-party media embeds via Embed.ly:

So you can simply embed a song from SoundCloud...

Or if you’re more of a visual person, embed a live performance from YouTube!


Once you have created an article, you can schedule it, save it for a rainy day, or publish it right then and there.

Along with publishing, Verst is a platform that’s focused on results. You can A/B test your articles to get the most engagement possible, and you can capture more email signups, podcast listeners, or whatever you want with powerful calls-to-action! More on these features in our “Advanced Techniques” article. 


If you have any more questions, please reach out to support@verst.com or, again, check out our detailed FAQ page

Happy publishing!
