Creating a Link post

When creating a Link post on Haiilo, you can use a URL from the article or website you want to link to. Haiilo will automatically try to fetch the content for your post if it's accessible on the website you're using.

When a link post is shared on social media, external clicks redirect to the original URL used to create the post in Haiilo.

To learn more about why Haiilo may not be able to fetch the content and what you can do to improve the fetching, please refer to this article.

Step 1: Enter a link

  1. Select Link in the Create a post box at the top of the feed
  2. Enter or paste a URL into the field. Make sure to include the full URL in Haiilo including https://
  3. Optionally, make edits to the title, body, or image of your post.
  4. Select Next

Step 2: Configure

  1. Select the channels where you want your post to appear. You must add at least one channel, but you can add multiple channels.
  2. Set the post's language. The language is automatically set based on the content of the post, but we recommend verifying that the language is correct.
  3. Add a campaign for your post. This option is only available for admins.
  4. Enable or disable comments for your post. This option is only available for admins.
  5. Select an audience: External sharing or Internal reading. External sharing means the post can be shared on social media. If you choose External, you can also:
    1. Select the social networks that the post can be shared on
    2. Write recommended messages for each network. You can write multiple messages by selecting the + icon or, if activated for your platform, use AI to generate sharing messages.
    3. Define points per network that users receive for sharing the post. This option is only available for admins
  6. Optionally, enable additional options, such as read confirmation, featured posts, or notify users immediately. These options are only available for admins.
  7. Select Next

Step 3: Confirm

  1. Optionally, write comments or an explanation for your post. These comments will be displayed above the post when it's published and will only be visible internally within the platform, not when shared on social media. We suggest using this field to inform your users why they should share the post on their social networks.
  2. Add custom UTM tags to enable tracking of traffic for your post. This option is only available for admins.
  3. If you want to delay the post's publication, select Schedule and define a date and time for it to be published. This option is only available for admins. Scheduled posts show on the Scheduled feed until they are published. 
  4. Once you are happy with your post, select Done to submit the post. Unless you scheduled it, your post will be published immediately.
    • If you are a user, your post will need to be approved by an admin before it is published.
