How to add posts in Bulk

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 to post so many posts individually and the amount of time and effort it takes.

To help you with that, we have created a way for you to add posts 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 ) which you can find by going to Recurring Posts page. You can create new libraries by clicking on the ‘ADD NEW LIBRARY’ button. Click on the library of your choice to add posts in it.

RecurPost supports uploading content in bulk in various ways, so you’ll get a lot of options to upload content inside the library. By selecting ‘ADD RECURRING POST‘ button at top center of the page, you can add one post at a time. Click on ‘ADD‘ button on the right corner to add your posts in bulk.

Here, you can add either text/link posts or image post in bulk or you can also add posts in bulk through a CSV file. 

Step 2: Add Your Content

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

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

Bulk uploading for Text/Link posts

Next, I’ll be seeing total 3 posts. The preview allows you to see how your posts 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.

First post will be the text post as Sample Post 1, Second will be the text post as Sample Post 2, and Third will be the text post as Sample Post 3. So, the message for each post will be separated by a new line like shown in the image above.

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

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

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

The preview allows you to see how your posts 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 post and are satisfied with how it looks, you can directly add those posts to your selected library. To do so, scroll down and click on the ‘ADD TO LIBRARY‘ button. 

Bulk uploading for Image posts

Now let’s see how to add image posts 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 4 MB in size.

After adding your images, you’ll see them displayed one after the other. In this case, I have added 3 images so I’ll see them in preview as ‘Update 1’, ‘Update 2’, and ‘Update 3’.

Here, you will be able to write your message 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:

after clicking on apply to all - recurpost - social media scheduler

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 text to all images, click on ‘YES, SAME TEXT FOR ALL IMAGES’.

Now,

If the number of text lines equates to 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 posts as drafts until a particular date and stop recycling them after a certain date.

For more info on drafts and recycling, please read here.

Once you’ve made your settings and are happy with the entire layout, scroll down all the way and click on ‘ADD TO LIBRARY’ button and you’ll see your posts in your selected library.

In addition to the above ways, you can add posts in 3 other ways. 

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

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