Create a Social Campaign

Creating standalone social messages will help with your quick one-off messages, but creating social campaigns will allow you to create multiple social messages easier.

Why Would You Want To Use a Social Campaign?

A Social Campaign helps you create, manage, and track social messages as a group. Using a link to a web page, they can also help you promote your website, even if it’s not a WordPress site. You can search your calendar for the title of the Social Campaign and use them in filters for Saved Views on your calendar. You can use them in conjunction with Social Templates to make scheduling your messages go quicker and be more consistent. They’re a mainstay of the CoSchedule calendar!
