How to Import Social Posts



Social media provides you with the means to build, mix and promote business engagement, conversation, and supplier and partner-generated social content. Social content comes in many forms (audio, text, video, images, etc.). Suppliers create social content for partners that is co-branded with the partner’s social accounts and allows the partner to push social content to their connections and followers. This content is continuously updated by the supplier and pushed out to partners.

If you have social posts in a CSV file, the posts can be uploaded in bulk into ZiftMarcom. The CSV file must be in a UTF-8 format and cannot exceed 100MB. Use the Download sample file to get started creating the file to upload.
