This article will walk you through creating draft content for a Twitter post in the system.
1. Now that your bid has been approved (or you have accepted a Direct Offer), it's time to create your draft content. From your Dashboard, click the Offer that is ready to have content created (it will be listed as Create Content) by selecting the Project name.
2. From here, you will have the option to create draft content for this Offer. If it is a Multi-Channel Social Post, you will see more than one Unit listed to create content for, if it is just an Instagram Post, you will only see the Twitter Unit. Locate the Twitter Post Unit and click Create Content.
3. Once on the content creation page, will be able to view the Draft Due Date, the Content Publish Date, and all of the Requirements for your post on the right hand side of your screen.
4. The first step in creating your draft content is to add any and all images you would like to use. To do this, you may drag or drop your images or click the + icon in the media box. From here you will be able to select a photo from your desktop to use in your post.
5. Once your photo has loaded you will need to crop your image. You can choose what shape you would like to crop it to. In this example we are using square. After you have adjusted your image, select Crop and Upload. If you would like to add another photo, click the + icon in the box provided.
Note: If the Marketer approves this draft, they and the system will expect that all photos you submit here will be posted with your content. We recommend only submitting the one photo or group of photos you plan on fully posting with your content to avoid confusion or system issues after approval.
6. Next, you will need to select the type of disclosure you wish to use. Based on FTC legal guidelines, your content must include a clear disclosure to signify sponsorship. To select your preferred disclosure, click on circle the next to one of the disclosure options. Please refer to the disclosure article linked above to make sure you keep your disclosure where it needs to be to stay compliant for your post.
7. You will now need to create the text content for your post in the box provided. Along with your custom content, your caption must include all of the Required Elements requested by the Marketer (which will be listed directly below your draft box). For Required Elements, you will simply need to place your mouse cursor where you would like to insert them and then click ADD to insert them into your draft. Alternatively, you may type any required mentions or hashtags as you see them listed and the system will automatically mark them as inserted, provided the spelling and casing match. Share URL links will need to be manually added by clicking them below however.
8. Once you have inserted all of the Required Elements into your content, they will turn green to signify that you have completed adding them in.
9. After you have completed typing up your draft, review your content and make sure that everything is spelled correctly (especially the brand and product names) and then select Submit Content to send your draft to the Marketer for review. If you're not ready to submit you can always select Close and Save as Draft.
10. If this is just a single Twitter Post, you are all set. If this is a Multi-Channel Social Post, you will now need to submit your content for your other Social Share(s). The following articles will walk you through how to submit content for each social share.
