👌 Creating link posts is super easy in Post Planner!

In this article I will show you how to create posts using links and optimize them per social network.

There are two ways to create link posts:

  • Using links available in the CONTENT section of the app.

  • Manually adding a link using the post composer.

Links in CONTENT

The Content section is one of the most powerful features of Post Planner. Here you can search and access overflowing content which you can use in your own posts.

Once you have created your own content streams (Here is a guide if you have not created one yet) you can now use your available content to easily create your link posts.

To do this:

(1) Go to CONTENT > MY STREAMS.

(2) Hover over the article that you want to add to your post then click on the Create Post button.

(3) This action will lead you to the post composer where you can optimize your posts per social network using the network tabs.

Note that Instagram supports only photo and video posts. The composer will not allow you to create a link post in Instagram.

You also have to select a Pinterest board to create a post.

(4) You'll notice that it is only when you have optimized the post to comply with the posting rules of each social network will the Add to Plan button be activated.

(5) Click on the Add to Plan button to create your planned link posts.

Creating link posts in the Composer

Pinterest

(1) Once you have copied the link that you want to share go to the post composer.
