Step 1: Log into your Social Rotation Account.
Step 2: Select Content from the left sidebar.
Step 3: Choose which type of bucket you want to create.
( Your buckets are for uploading your own content, prebuilt buckets are buckets created from content from the Social Rotation MarketPlace).
Step 4: Click on Your Bucket then click on the create content bucket button.
Step 5: Choose which way you would like to upload your content.
An individual image
Zipped file with several images at once
To upload an Individual Image:
A. Choose a file from your computer then hit save changes.
B. Once your file has been added to your bucket you can edit that post. Click on the Edit button.
C. Add your post caption in the area marked Post message.
D. Choose if you want to watermark that post with your logo.
E. Hit the save button.
If you are uploading your own images you will want to make sure that you follow the image size guidelines.
If you would like to watermark the images with your logo you will want to be sure to keep the upper right-hand corner free of graphics or text.
To upload several posts at once using a Zip file.
A. You will want to put all of your image files into one folder on your computer.
B. You will want to create a CSV (comma-separated value) sheet with the image name and captions.
(Tab 1 – Instructions / Tab 2- Sample CSV / Tab 3 Date Based Sample CSV)
1. Make a copy the CSV Google Sheet. (File > Make a Copy)
2. Click on the bottom tab that says Sample CSV.
3. Type in your file name in Column A.
(name MUST match the exact name of the file)
4. Type in your caption in Column B. Captions are what you want to say about your image inside your post.
5. Save the file and a CSV File. Go to file > download > Comma-Seperated Values- .csv, current sheet)
C. Combine all of your images and the CSV file into one folder on your desktop.
D. Compress that folder into a zip file.
E. Upload the Zip file. Choose File under Add Zipped Package. Hit Save Changes button.
F. Once the files have been uploaded you can edit the captions if you want to. And you can choose if you want those graphics watermarked by selecting the button above Randomize Bucket.
(Randomize Bucket will shuffle all of your images. This is a great feature if you have several images in a row that look similar (like in a series) so that they do not show up altogether.)
