Getting started

Creating your account

It only takes a few details to create your nthuse account. It’s free to use nthuse, so you can get stuck in and create your ads without paying subscription fees. You only pay to post your ad. To create your account, just click ‘Create free account’ in the top right of this screen. You can use your LinkedIn, Twitter or Facebook accounts to register, or just fill in the form with your email address, name, company name, your company’s website url and your chosen password. Check the box to confirm you’ve read and agree to the terms and conditions, then just hit continue.

Setting up your account

Once you’ve created your account, you’ll be prompted to collect your brand material from your website.

Simply enter your company’s website address or career page URL and hit Run Wizard. The Wizard will then search your website for logos, images, fonts, typography and colours, pulling all of this information into nthuse ready for you to use in your templates.

The Wizard will only pull in brand assets from the URL you’ve specified, it won’t canvas your whole website. So, if you have a couple of pages you’d like to pull assets from, all you need to do is re-run the Wizard. You can do this at any time in your account settings.

You can read more about the Wizard and uploading your brand assets here.

Creating multiple companies

If you want to use nthuse for multiple companies, you can set these up within your nthuse account – you don’t need to register for each company separately!

Simply click on your company name in the top left to open the drop-down menu. You’ll then see an option to Add Company. This will open a dialogue box. Just enter your company name and URL, then click Add New Company. You’ll then be prompted to run the Wizard again and set up your new company.

You can switch between companies at any time – just click the company name in the top left, and choose which company you want to work on from the drop-down menu.

Navigating nthuse

All of the nthuse tools are organised in the menu bar on the left, whilst your account, settings and user profiles are accessed through the top navigation. Here’s an overview of the top-level items in the navigation and the cool functionality within each of them.

  • Dashboard – this is where you’ll find real-time reporting on all of your adverts by channel, plus options to export this to .csv or .pdf.
