Keys to success
📌 For use with the clickable image post, you must set up your own clickable image post server. Furthermore, remember to configure it under Settings > Connectivity; this is a global setting that will be applied to all of your clickable images.
📌 If there are no clickable image servers added, you will instead see the error message below.
📌 You will need to upload the image elsewhere or use an image that is already available so that everything is set up before you begin; you cannot upload it using the SU Social.
It would be fantastic if you had it on your website because you could utilize it from there. If not, simply submit it online anywhere that accepts uncomplicated image uploads. You can accomplish this using http://imgur.com; it’s simple to post a photo there and obtain a direct URL; and you don’t have to register if you don’t want to.
📌 Use a high-quality image in your post to ensure that it looks amazing. Use a wide image whenever possible because social networks prefer them. Get the direct URL for your photo to be used in SU Social.
📌 It is highly recommended to utilize at least a minimal amount of spinning for the title of your article since different titles will result in different URLs for SU Social to publish. This is particularly beneficial when posting to numerous Facebook groups because it will ensure that you use various URLs for the same message, lowering the likelihood that Facebook may block those URLs. You can also utilize a few different servers as an alternative.
Clickable Image Posts are a great way to increase interaction on social media platforms and drive traffic to your website. SU Social provides an easy way to create and use clickable images on Facebook, LinkedIn, Pinterest, and Twitter. It is important to remember to set up your own clickable image post server and use a high-quality image for the best results.
