How do I add trackable links to the social media posts in an automation campaign?
Posted by The Team at Mindmatrix on 19 October 2015 07:43 AM

Step 1: Click to expand “Manage” and click on “Campaigns”. Then click on “Social Drip”.

Step 2: Click on the social drip you want to edit.

Step 3: All of the trackable links and posts have been made for you. All you have to do is check the boxes next to the social media site you would like to post to...and then add the trackable links.

Use this spreadsheet as a map. (posts should be in the same order) Click here for the social media spreadsheet

Check the box next to "choose randomly" so similar posts aren't posted consecutively. You choose: every day, every other day, and so on- from the pull down menu. Then, click on the post.

Step 4: Check the boxes next to the social media sites you have activated. For Facebook, select your fan page from the facebook pull down menu.

Now you can add the relevant link to the post. To do this, click on "links" and select the link that corresponds to that post (see spreadsheet).

We recommend you add the links to 5 posts and then click save- and then return to the edit page. This ensures you will not accidentally lose your work.

If you edit the posts, be mindful of the character limit for LinkedIn and twitter. You can add text, if you are below your character limit- or you can take the trackable link to bitly and bring the shortened link back to the post to save characters. These are your posts so feel free to modify them, delete them, and/or add to them.

Notes:

  • Posts may take up to 24 hours to appear on the social media sites.

  • LinkedIn posts go to the personal profile area and not the company page.

  • Be sure to start the drip campaign when you have finished adding the trackable links.
