Getting Started / Creating Campaigns

Creating Campaigns

It's no longer enough just to create posts and clutter up your social media accounts. Top marketers think about social media in terms of campaigns and carefully plan content for followers. These efforts are usually targeted (for example, promoting your Black Friday sales) and spread across multiple social media platforms.

Campaigns can help you organize your content and track your progress toward your goal.

Use campaigns to:
  • organize your content and make it easy to recall at any time.
  • keep track of your team's progress  
  • view statistics, and learn about results

Creating a New Campaign

  1. Start by clicking the Campaigns tab in your Comity dashboard.

  2. From there click Create a Campaign button in the upper right corner. 

  3. Enter a name for your campaign, choose a color, add a note (optional) and click Save Campaign.

Make your post the way you normally would. Learn how to schedule a post.

Any posts that have been planned for your campaign will appear inside the campaign.
