Targets in the Social Scheduler: finding the right audience was never easier


You've used the Social Scheduler before, where you can distribute your content to social networks. And of course you've seen Discovery before, where the fine tuning for social distribution happens.

Well, we're doing some feature upgrades that will make working with both tools in the Entry Editor easier.

We want you to always get to the right audience with the right content, so for that we've made improvements to the targeting. Now you can easily see a card with the target's basic information while doing the scheduling.
Step by step below:

1. Go to the Entry Editor, either by clicking on 'Add Post' or by editing an existing article.

2. Go to the Discovery tab, and enter a tag and select 2 or 3 targets to test this.

You can edit/customize the comment copy in Settings > Templates > Comments Template:

3. Go to the Social Scheduling tab, you'll see a collapsed list of your selected targets there. By clicking on it you'll be able to expand it.

4. To @ mention a target in the post's description, click on '@ post'. The target will appear in the description above the media.

5. By clicking on the little arrow in the target's name, a card will display where you can see the contact's info, a link out to their page/site and what email addresses we have saved from them. You can also add a new email address from the card.

How to Include Interactive Elements in Posts

Enhance your articles with rich and creative media

Every article is a fresh chance to grab new readers and nurture loyal followers. This is why we give creators every opportunity to build content rich with media elements that enhance every reader's experience.

Add More Layers to Your Content

You can easily add interactive elements, like charts, to posts on our platform. For example, if you need to embed iframe code into a post, this can be done via our Add Media Bar. To do so, click the code icon (< >):

A text box will appear so you can insert your code:

Embedded Code Across Platforms

One important thing to keep in mind is that Google AMP, AppleNews, and Facebook Instant Articles will not always support embedded code. So if you use an iframe, it's best to turn off distribution to those channels for that particular post. If you have a lot of posts that require embedded code, this could be problematic for growth across those important platforms.

If you do want to use an iframe on a post destined for Google AMP distribution, it can be possible if the iframe is not at the top of the page or within the first 75% of the viewport when the page is scrolled to the top (whichever is smaller). AMP is a fast technology designed for mobile users and iframes are loaded using arbitrary timing that AMP's technology cannot ensure. For this reason, it's suggested that iframes be included in places that are not visible by users upon load.

If you have an article that needs to include an iframe at the top of the page, or within the first 75% of the viewport, AMP can be turned off for that individual article within Entry Editor.

If you don't need an interactive chart to be interactive in nature, can turn it into an image and upload it directly to your post. This way it will work on all platforms, including Google AMP, Apple News, and Facebook Instant Articles. This option, when possible, is ideal to ensure you're optimized for page speed.

Take Advantage of Shortcodes

Another great way to embed media is through our shortcodes functionality. Click here to learn more about shortcodes. Shortcodes can also inserted using the Add Media Bar. Click the brackets icon ([ ]) to choose the shortcode you want to use.

Here's an example of a chart on an article page that's been inserted using a shortcode:

Shortcodes Dashboard: Dynamic Media in Just a Few Clicks

Create multidimensional content with easy-to-find shortcodes

We believe static media is dead, and that every piece of content should be multidimensional and engaging. This is why our platform enables creators so they can add dynamic media to their content in easy and efficient ways.

One simple way to add interactive content to any post is through the use of shortcodes. Shortcodes are small snippets of code that are easier to remember than longer sequences. They typically will activate a feature or embed media into an article.
