Company Branding

Advanced Branding

It is important that your referral program is in line with your company branding. In Firstbird, you can create different job headers for your jobs, and different share logos and share texts for sharing on social media platforms.

Administrators are able to create and edit brandings. As soon as a new branding has been successfully created, this branding is visible when you create a new job. If no additional branding has been created, the “Branding” field is not visible and the default branding will be chosen automatically.

As an additional add-on, at Firstbird you can customize the sharing text for each social media channel (Facebook, LinkedIn, Xing and Twitter) in different languages.

 

Edit your Default Branding

In each Firstbird Account (except in Free plan), the default branding can be edited. Log in to your Firstbird Account, click on your name top right, and a drop down menu will appear. Go to “Account Preferences” next to “Branding”, and at “Job advert” you will see the default branding.

To edit this, please click the function “Edit”. The name “Default Branding” cannot be changed and you will not be able to delete this branding.

A Tip for Uploading a Logo

In the case that you have problems in uploading your company logo, try out the following:

  1. Open the logo in an image editing program (e.g. IrfanView).
  2. Choose the function "Canvas size" (the name for the function in IrfanView). The name of the function will depend on the type of image editing program you are using.
  3. Change the canvas dimension in pixels. The result should be a square version of your company logo (min. 200 x 200 pixel).
  4. Choose the canvas color (mostly white).
  5. Save your changes.

After completing these steps, you should have no problem in uploading your company logo.

If a problem continues to occur, don't hesitate to contact our support team via support@firstbird.com.
