While for both Standard and Volume Campaigns, there are several methods for adding a post such as:
The Add Posts sub-tab

There are four ways of adding posts in bulk: Add Multiple Text Posts, Add Multiple Image Posts, Import Text Posts From File and Import Posts From CSV file.
- ADD MULTIPLE TEXT POSTS: Once clicked, a pop-up window will appear and you can add texts for your multiple posts in the texts fields and attach pictures or a video as we explained above, once you finish setting up all your posts click “OK” and the posts will be added to your “Posts List” tab.
- ADD MULTIPLE IMAGE POSTS: Once clicked a pop-up window will appear and you will need to either upload the images from your computer or add them from URL’s, after you type the URL’s click “ADD IMAGES FROM URL” and wait until the images are scraped and shown in the “Attachments:” field and then click “ADD PHOTOS” and a pop-up window will appear with those images where you can add text to your posts, once you finish setting up all your posts click “OK” and the posts will be added to your “Posts List” tab.
- IMPORT TEXT POSTS FROM FILE: With this option, you can import posts from a text file, just use a series of 5 # ( ##### ) as a post separator. Posts that already exist in the Post Queue (with the exact same text) will not be added. The text file should look like the below image
- IMPORT POSTS FROM CSV: This option will allow you to import posts from a CSV file, please go to the Posts List tab > Show Advanced View > Export Posts as CSV to see the file sample.
