It was very easy to integrate into my site. The external campaign editor has tons of versatility, and the maps and media are making my listicles POP! No more just static text... this blog is ALIVE

I thought my blog posts were pretty dope before discovering Vessel...then entered Vessel. Now my blog posts are next level with a built-in interactive map that allows you to post pictures and videos! It's truly a game-changer and you'd be foolish not to try them out. Let me know if you have any questions or need help setting up a campaign.
