How to Upload Content Manually on the Live Site

Within the Live URL, after the proposal is submitted, you are able to deliver content manually for the brand you are working with based on their requirements or request. Use the following steps to learn how to deliver upload types of content. 

Within this article, you will learn how to:

 

Deliver Network Posts and Videos

You are able to deliver network posts and videos manually within your Live URL if you do not have your social media accounts connected. Once uploaded, the brand you are working with will be able to view the content and the associated metrics for that content.

The brand will then review to be able to determine if your collaboration was successful, which could lead to more sponsorships in the future. Posts from Instagram, Facebook, Youtube, etc. can be uploaded using the following steps. 

 

Note

If you have already connected your social media accounts there is no need to upload posted content. GRIN will pull in content with the appropriate hashtags/mentions automatically without the need for a manual upload. But, if your brand wants to review your content before posting then upload your content via General Upload.

 

Step 1 Copy the full URL of your post or video from your social media account.

Step 2 Within your Live URL, locate the campaign you have applied for and click My Proposals

Note

If you receive an error message when delivering your content, this may indicate that your content has already been pulled in, based on the hashtag and/or mentions that were used in your post. If you receive an error first check that your social media is connected and if not please contact your Brand.

Delivering Instagram Stories

Instagram stories and story insights take a slightly different process than uploading posts because they are not visible after a 24hr period. After the 24hr period, stories disappear from public view and are then stored in an archive, if set up, along with story insights.

Please keep in mind story insights are only available for up to 14 days after a story is created. You are able to download your stories and upload them to the Live URL using the following steps:

Delivering Content via a General Upload

You are able to upload content that is not connected to any current task or if there is no other upload option available for your campaign tasks via a general upload. Please note that the size limit for uploads is 500mb (.5GB). 

General Uploads is the perfect place to submit content for approval before posting your content on social media. Once the content has been approved via General Upload then after posting either it will be pulled in automatically if your social media accounts are connected or you are able to deliver the content manually within the Tasks for Deliver Content

Step 1 Within your Live URL, locate the campaign you have applied for and click My Proposals
