Provide a complete, valid URL for the image to display in the content offer.
You must specify a complete URL address, including the protocol. For example:

Publish the content offer


After creating the content offer, save and publish it so that it's available for an action map to use.
You can't edit an action after you publish it. So, if you're not ready to publish the content offer, save it as a draft. Then, you can publish it when you're ready.
For more information, see Save an action: draft or publish.

Link the content offer to an action map


After you publish a content offer, link it to an action map so that your users can see it. The action map defines the conditions that trigger the content offer. You can either create an action map to link the content offer to, or link it to an existing action map.

Specify when to activate the content offer and the time period during which to use the content offer. For more information about action maps, see About action maps
