A Fast and More Flexible Way to Deliver Rich Information to Your Shoppers

Tue, 10/31/2017

CNET ContentCast is excited to announce the launch of Feature Icons - an innovative way of serving rich content above the fold. 


Why Feature Icons?

Not all users behave the same on a website; some users will scroll down and find rich content, while others stay above the fold. Our research has consistently shown that when visitors engage with rich content, they are more likely to convert. Feature Icons provide another interaction touch point to engage those users who don't scroll down the page.

Login now and take advantage of this exciting feature, just in time for holidays!



Rich content is broken into sections:

  • CNET Expert Reviews*
  • Image Hot Spots
  • 360° Spin
  • Media Gallery
  • Features
  • Specifications
  • Documents
  • Comparison Charts

Feature Icons enable you to display each of these sections as an interactive icon that loads either as a lightbox or a hover. Feature Icons are mobile friendly and fully 508 compliant.

*CNET Reviews are premium content that is either sponsored by the manufacturer or can be purchased by retailers at an additional cost.



Feature Icons are configurable to match your website or product page design. These customizations are self-serve in our Portal and can be made within seconds including;
  • Vertical or Horizontal display
  • Lightbox or Hover mode for displaying rich content
  • Support for multiple icon sizes
  • Support for multiple icon colors
Available Icons - By default all icons are selected, but if you wish, you can deselect one or more. For example, you may choose not to display the ‘Documents’ icon or any other by simply deselecting the Documents icon within our Portal settings.
