Adding a summary to your articles is a great way for your subscribers to preview your content - whether they find it in your newsletter or on social media!

Remember, only the Traditional and Headlines Plus newsletter formats include summaries alongside articles (Just the Headlines format does not). Here's a peek at a summary included with an article in a newsletter:

When writing your summary, don't forget to limit your characters to 250. Be sure to write a catchy phrase that will grab the attention of your subscribers, while they are scrolling through your newsletter.  

Your article summary will even appear when your share your Cerkl posts to various social media account - Displaying beautifully below the headline and photo. For example, if you share a story to Facebook, the post will look something like this:

Keep in mind, if you don't include a specialized summary, Cerkl will automatically grab the first few sentences from the body of your article. But, no worries, you always have the option to revise this text in the future!
