Given the high number of social media posts that marketers are expected to create on a daily basis, sometimes it's easier to write them out in a spreadsheet, and then upload them. With Oktopost, you can upload messages from a CSV file, and all of them will be saved in Message Assets, which can later be accessed for scheduling.
How to Use the Bulk Uploader:
- Go to the Campaigns tab, select a Campaign go to the Message Assets tab.
- Click on the Import button, and download the CSV template
- Fill out the template according to the legend below; save it as a CSV file. Once the file is ready, navigate back to Message Assets, click on the Import Messages button again, and upload your file.
|Network||All||Mandatory. Type it exactly as written below, keep in mind capitalization:
Google (do not include a "+" sign)
|Message||All||Mandatory. This is the body of the post itself. If you are tweeting, make sure to include any links in this section. Please note they will be shortened upon publication. A link in a tweet counts as 23 characters.|
|LinkUrl||Facebook, LinkedIn, Google+||Optional. Facebook, Google+ and LinkedIn posts all support link attachments. This is why you don't need to include the link in the message itself. The link attachment is constructed using four fields; LinkUrl, LinkTitle, ImageUrl and Description. At the bottom of this article you can find the anatomy of a link attachment.|
|LinkTitle||Facebook, LinkedIn||Optional. Used to create headline shown in the link attachment. In Google+, the headline is automatically populated by Google.
|ImageUrl||Facebook, LinkedIn||Optional. Used to create the image (thumbnail) shown in the link attachment. In Google+, the link image is automatically populated.|
|Description||Facebook, LinkedIn||Optional. Used to create the description of the link attachment. In Google+, the headline is automatically populated.|
|Picture||Facebook, Twitter, Google+||Optional. Used to upload an image to your post. The image must be in URL format.Important: On Facebook and Google+ you can either have a link attachment or upload an image, but not both. This is irrelevant for Twitter, since Twitter doesn't have a link attachment and the link is just a part of the Tweet itself. If you still would like to have a link in your Facebook or Google+ post, just include the link in the message itself, and don't use the link attachment option.
