Add Campaign via URL

This is quite a long page, but the process is actually very quick. How long it takes very much depends on how well written your website actually is.

Adding a ‘campaign via URL’ means you will create a campaign which sends lots of traffic to a single page on your website.

The campaign will be made up of the lots of small pieces of content. This content we will get from your web page upon which we will send traffic.

Titles on their own might not make much sense on their own, so delete them or expand on them. Long paragraphs can be split up here, but we will automatically split these for you later, but ideally, your paragraphs should be short anyway, similar to the above. You can edit this later.
  • ImageThis is automatically populated based on the featured image of your webpage.
  • Selected tags – Select which hashtags are relevant to this campaign. You can add new tags on this screen too. If you ever need to edit your tags, you can do so later, from the hashtag manager screen.

How we split your content

If the length of your content is longer than what twitter allows (280 characters), then we will further split your paragraphs into the sentences. We calculate the length based on your template and allow space for the link to your website.

So you might have a really long paragraph. This will be suitable to post on Facebook or LinkedIn, but we will split it down into smaller pieces so it is suitable for Twitter. So one long paragraph will create one post PLUS lots of smaller posts.

Don’t worry, you can edit all your smaller pieces of data at any time.

How do I edit my campaign once it has been created?

Once you press submit, you will automatically be redirected to the campaign details page.

You can edit your campaigns at any time by going to the campaigns page.
