How to get a URL for your Campaign

by Administrator on ‎03-16-2015 01:15 PM

Want to share your campaign on your website, social profiles, blog, or within a different campaign?  You can use the Campaign URL!  Here’s how you can get the URL:  (Please note, in order to get a URL, the campaign needs to have been sent and cannot be in a draft or scheduled status)

 

  1. Go to the Campaigns tab in your account
  2. Find the Campaign you need the URL for
  3. There is a Link icon right next to the name of the campaign, click on this. If you do not see the link icon, you can go to the Actions tab on the left and choose Short URL.

  4. A new overlay will appear showing you the URL for your campaign, you can copy this to use it wherever you need it!
    Please note, the url links to a web version of your email

That’s it!  Pretty easy, right?  Have you used the Campaign URL?  Where have you shared it?

I've done this several times now, and it's a handy way to send out as a text to our school families. However, when I post the short code to Facebook, I'd prefer that the image "icon" not be arbitrary. Is there a way to pull a prefered image out of the email message? Thanks for your help.

Hello @MontessoriDresher,

 

Great question. There is a way to choose which image is associated with your Facebook post. This is something that has to be handled on the Facebook end but I will provide two screenshots showing what it would look like and how to do it:

 

When you paste in the short URL of your campaign for a status update through your personal page the set-up will look like this:

I took a URL for one of your most recent campaigns to demonstrate. The arrows highlighted in red indicate where you can cycle through the images that have been identified in the campaign. If you do not want the pictures available you can always click "Photo/Video" to choose a different one from your computer.

 

This is what it would look like if you are sharing through a business page:

You can use that higlighted arrow to cycle through or choose from a selection of images at the bottom. Otherwise, you can hit the "+" symbol above "Boost Post" to choose an image from your computer.
