What Are Snippets?
Snippets are a fantastic tool to quickly and effectively add frequently used text and hashtags to Posts!
Always find yourself typing out the same string of hashtags? A call to action? The link to your blog?
Save the phrases, hashtags, and text you use most often as Snippets and simply add them to your Posts in one click ✅
How Do I Create Or Edit A Snippet?
Click on the 'clipboard' icon inside the Post Editor to create a new Snippet.
Select 'Create a new Snippet' to open the Snippets editor.
Name your Snippet and add your frequently used text or hashtags. You can add anything including:
- Line Breaks
- and more!
💡 Tip: Keep track of the number of hashtags and characters you've used with the counter on the right so you stay within various social media platform's limits!
Note: Hashtags work the same as in the Post Editor – simply start typing your hashtag with a # character, and we’ll show a list of the suggested hashtags. This requires you to have an Instagram profile connected.
To manage and edit a complete list of your Snippets, click 'Settings' on the Cog menu and navigate to Snippets on the left.
Click 'Edit' next to the Snippet you'd like to modify.
How Do I Add A Snippet To A Post?
You can add Snippets to your Post Text from the Post Editor.
Click the 'clipboard' icon to view your saved Snippets.
Preview each Snippet by hovering over the 'Preview' button.
Once you've identified the Snippet you'd like to add to your post, select 'Add.'
💡 Tip: If you're adding hashtags to an Instagram post, choose to hide your hashtags below your caption by clicking the 'X' next to 'Add 5 lines before the Snippet!'
Note: You can also bulk add Snippets when using the Importer tool. Click the 'clipboard' icon to choose and add a Snippet to all selected posts.
Examples Of How To Use Snippets
- Collect 30 hashtags in one Snippet, so you can add all of your frequently-used hashtags in one go!
- Collect smaller groups of hashtags, so you can mix-and-match hashtags. e.g. 10 hashtags about blogging + 10 hashtags about social media + 10 hashtags about your city.
- Add a promo blurb about your business – what you do, your benefits, and a link to your website/blog/promotion.
- Commonly-used phrases: “In case you missed it, check out this great article”; your favourite emojis: ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜; or even ASCII art: ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
- Bulk import lots of posts from RSS or a social feed, and add a self-promo blurb to the bottom of each post.
- Create a Snippet with the link to your most recent blog post or website to save time on typing it out
Note: When you create a post you are only permitted to have one tracked shortened hyperlink in it. If you already have one present and try to insert another one, even within a Snippet, it will be posted as is, without Google UTM or Bitly Processing.
