How can you add links to a post? How will it look in the feed?

Do you want to lead traffic from your social media directly to your website? It's easy! Just add a link to the post. 

When creating a Facebook post in PromoRepublic, insert a URL in the text box and the website preview will automatically be pulled up. It includes the website title, description, and thumbnail image. 

You can delete the preview and add your image, but clicking on the visual in the feed won't direct you to the URL destination. Only clicking on the link itself will lead you to the website.

Feel free to shorten the link so it looks nice in the feed.

Here are two examples of creating a Facebook post with a link in PromoRepublic.

Website original preview

When the post is ready, paste a hyperlink into the text bar in addition to the caption. Once you do this, the website preview will auto-populate.

When the post is published, clicking on the picture will direct you to the website destination.

Post with a customized visual

When the preview auto-populates, delete it and add your own picture.

Or first, choose a visual and then add the URL. This way the preview won't upload because the image is already there.

Once the post is published, it will look this way in the feed. The visual won't be clickable, unlike in the first case, but only the link.

If the preview doesn't populate, check the website settings in the Facebook debugger. In case there is no thumbnail image, it means that it is not developed originally, an example is below.

We hope this guide was helpful!
