How to Add Social Updates in Bulk

  knowledgebase

Keeping up with the latest trends seems almost impossible these days. Not to mention how the need to constantly post bulk content on social media is on an all-time high.

This is where RecurPost steps in. We know how hard it is to write and post so many updates individually and the amount of time and effort it takes.

To help you with that, we have created a way for you to post updates in bulk, saving you a ton of time and energy.

Let’s see how to add content in bulk.

Step 1: Go to your Library

When you create an account, 3 libraries will be made by default – My blogs, Shareable quotes, and Other people’s content. You can create new libraries by clicking on the ‘Add new library’ button. Now from the Dashboard, click on the library that you wish to add content in.

Inside the library, you’ll get a lot of options to upload content.

RecurPost supports uploading content in bulk in various ways. Click on the ‘Recurring Updates’ button on the top-right corner and select ‘Add in bulk’ from the drop-down menu. Here, you can either create updates one-by-one or through a CSV file. 

Step 2: Add Your Content

You can add two kinds of content in bulk: Text/Link updates or Image updates.

First, let’s see how to add text updates in bulk.

Next, you’ll be adding the actual content. The message for each update will be separated by a new line like shown in the image above. In this case, I’ll be having 3 different updates made.

You can also add in links instead of texts like so:

In this case, I’ll be creating 3 link updates.

Once you’re happy with your selected links, click on ‘Generate Preview‘.

The preview allows you to see how your updates will look on each social media platform. You can still make changes to your content, save them as drafts, recycle them, or add media images for each post.

Once you’ve previewed your content and are satisfied with how it looks, you can directly add your updates to your selected library. To do so, scroll down and click on the ‘Add to library‘ button. 

Bulk Uploading for Image Updates

Now let’s see how to add image updates in bulk. It’s almost the same procedure to add images as it is to add text.

On the ‘Upload Content in Bulk’ screen, click on the blue ‘Add Media‘ button and select your images directly from your computer. Keep in mind that your images must be less than 4MB in size

After adding your images, you’ll then see them displayed one after the other. In this case, I have added 3 images so I’ll see them in preview as ‘Post 1’, ‘Post2’, and ‘Post 3’.

Here, you will be able to write your content in the ‘Image Caption’ window like shown in the image below.

After adding your captions, go ahead and click on the ‘Apply to all‘ button.

You’ll see the following pop-up:

Let’s say I want my captions (3 messages) spread to the 3 images evenly i.e. one caption for one image.

To do that, click on ‘Add one item to one image‘. That way, you will distribute your content evenly among the different images like so:

Keep in mind that if the number of captions (text lines) is not equal to the number of images, you’ll receive the following error pop-up:

add one item to one image - recurpost - social media scheduler

In this case, you have two options:

1. Add the entire text (all the captions) to every image

2. Add or remove some captions or images to equate each other

To add or remove, click on ‘No, let me fix this‘. To add the entire content (all text lines) to all images, click on ‘Yes, same text for all images’.

Now,

If the number of text lines equates the number of images, and you still wish to add the entire text content to every image, you can do so by simply clicking on ‘Apply to all‘ and further clicking on ‘Attach entire text to every image‘.

It will look a little something like this:

You can also keep your image updates as drafts until a particular date and stop recycling them after a certain date.

Once you’ve made your settings and are happy with the entire layout, scroll down all the way and click on ‘Add to library’ and you’ll see your updates in your selected library.

In addition to the above ways, you can upload content in 4 other ways. 

Inside the library, you’ll see all these options: Add content through a link, Import from a CSV file, Import content from website, and Import from a social account.

That’s all! You’re good to go! You can now edit, schedule, or delete these updates according to your preferences.
