Follow this help article to create your first social posts.

Step 1. After logging in to StoryChief, choose Social posts.

Step 2. To create new social posts, click on + new social post.

Step 3. The social editor will now appear.

a.) Start by choosing which channels by toggling them on and off.

b.) The master message (template) is displayed on the right. The text you write in your master post, will by default appear on all your social media channels you've selected. You can choose to tailor this per channel (optional next step) or to use this as an easy and quick way of creating social posts for all your channels.

You can choose to create a social post from:

  • Story - If you want to link the social posts to a story you have created inside StoryChief, choose this option. A sidebar will open so that you can select the story to use.

  • Link - Attach a link (URL) to your social post.

  • Video - Upload a video with your social post (more info)

In the example below, we have chosen to create a social post from a story.

c.) Optional: Tailor your post per social media channel:

Once you've created your default message in the master post, scroll down to start tailoring your post per channel. This provides you with a unique way to engage with the types of audiences you have per platform.

For example:

  • Facebook audience might want something more lighthearted compared to your LinkedIn audience who need more of a business angle.

  • Add hashtags or tag businesses per social media channel to make your post more personalized. (more info)

  • Add an emoji depending on the social media platform.

Note: Be aware that per platform there are different rules. For example for Twitter you have a limit of 140 characters.

Step 4. Once you have finished creating your social posts, you can click on Publish now or Schedule to publish the post on a different date and time.

Step 5 (optional): You can also schedule the publishing time for each social media channel separately. To do so, go to the channel you want to schedule the post for, click on publish now and then adjust the date and time.
