Socialdraft Features You’ll Love
This one is great for anyone who works with a team (or with a client that likes to micromanage). With collaboration, you can set up people in your team (and clients) so that they have access only to certain social accounts, and only to certain areas within those accounts. It’s super easy to set someone up and to remove them when needed. What kind of users can you set up?
- Admin: This is the person who owns the account (most likely you). This person has control over the entire dashboard and back-end items such as billing.
- Manager: This person can be given almost all access to the site, except for back-end items such as billing.
- Sub-User: A sub-user can be allowed to schedule and post content to a page. They can also be given access to Instagram tools, the Socialdraft Queue, the Engagement Inbox.
- Managed Sub-Users: These are almost the same as sub-users. The difference is that while they can schedule content, the content won’t publish unless it is approved by an admin.
- Guests: These are the users with the least power. Most of our users use this setting to give access to clients. Guests can access only the social networks you choose. They cannot edit, delete or re-schedule content, but they can leave notes on posts for your team.
SUPED UP INSTAGRAM TOOLS
You can now connect Instagram accounts to Socialdraft. You and your team can schedule posts to all the accounts. But that’s not all. With Socialdraft’s Instagram tools, you can:
- Schedule posts to one or multiple Instagram accounts
- Search for posts by keyword
- Schedule reposts of those posts to all your other connected social networks
CUSTOM URL SHORTENER
We love bit.ly as much as you do (especially since Tweets that useURLsS shortened with Bitly get significantly more re-tweets). That’s why you can now set up your custom bitly to track your social media performance.
With campaigns, you can set up groups of social accounts. This allows you to schedule and post the same message to multiple social networks in just one shot. This suggestion came to us via our Facebook
You can pull reports for Facebook AND Twitter. We even have white label options.
SOCIALDRAFT CORE FEATURES
Drag & Drop Calendar
Our drag and drop calendar allows you to schedule posts to Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn for as long as you like. You can schedule an entire month…even an entire year. It also allows you to drag & drop a post to reschedule it AND to duplicate posts you want to repeat.
You can bulk schedule lots (and we mean lots) of posts on social media by utilizing our CSV posting feature. You can choose a time zone, you can have us TrueTime your post, AND your images will look gorgeous when they post to Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn
Instagram Regram or repost campaigns are incredibly powerful. They can help you get in the faces of new audience members, grow your brand awareness, and build a targeted following. It’s also a great way to generate content if you don’t have great photography skills or if you have a client that is not so prolific when it comes to sending you content. Today, we’ll discuss how to get started on an Instagram regram or repost initiative so that you can achieve the above goals:
How to Run A Successful Repost Campaign
First you need to understand what a regram or repost is exactly. These are Instagram terms for sharing someone else’s photo on your Instagram account. The key here is that you are not stealing the photo or using it without permission. A proper regram requires that you have the content creator’s ok to post.
This type of content campaign is incredibly powerful because it requires you to engage with your target audience which in turn helps them get more exposure to your followers, and in turn yours.
Step 1. Choose a Hashtag
You will need a hashtag so that you can properly tag those who want to be regrammed by you. We’ll be using one of our users as a case study. Cognac Maniacs has run a very successful regram content campaign. They have been growing their account at about 1,000 targeted followers per month utilizing this technique. They chose #CognacManiacs as their hashtag.
Step 2. Promote Your Hashtag and Campaign
Once you’ve chosen a hashtag, make sure you include it in your profile with a call to action for your followers to use said hashtag for a chance to be featured. Then, cross-promote the campaign on other social media networks. Let your community on Facebook, Twitter, and all other social media networks know that you’re ready to share their content if they use your hashtag.
Step 3. Get Out There And Find Content To Share
Chances are when you first get started, you won’t have too many people participating. So get out there and search. Yes, you can do the search manually on Instagram and then screencap the image and then repost it after you’ve cropped it…but this takes so much time. Instead, you can save time by using the Socialdraft dashboard to search for content that is specific to your industry. Click over to their profile and ask permission to repost their image. This can be something as simple as a simple comment on why you love the image followed by “would love to repost, mind if I do? Full credit will be given”. Once they approve, you can schedule the repost using the Socialdraft dashboard.
Step 4. Schedule your repost
From the Socialdraft dashboard, click “share”. A modal box will open and you will be able to credit the content creator, add a write-up, and of course, include your hashtag.
***Make sure to add a line telling people who see this image that they too have a chance to be featured if they use your #reposthashtag.
Step 5. Follow and Engage
Make sure you follow and engage the people involved in your regram campaign. They will become brand advocates, probably regram your regram with a thank you…and tell others about it.
PRO TIP: Always credit the content creator. This is not just polite, it’s the right thing to do.
