How do I post on social media?

Your designs can be uploaded directly to social media from your My Stuff page. You can create posts for Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, and these can be shared across multiple channels. This means you can share your design to multiple pages and groups on Facebook, and your Twitter account at the same time. 

Create a social media post through your My Stuff 

Here we will explain how you can publish your post on social media via the My Stuff page.  

  • Go to your My Stuff. Click on the design you want to publish to preview it.

If you choose Facebook or Instagram, you will be able to connect your Instagram business profile, Facebook page, and Facebook group(s) administered by you all in one go.

  • Then you’ll be asked for posting permissions on behalf of the social media platform you chose. Social media publishing might not work properly unless all requested permissions are granted. 
  • Select the accounts where you want to publish your content. Users with a free basic account can select up to two accounts for publishing, while Premium and Premium subscribers can select an unlimited number of accounts for publishing.

PosterMyWall’s publishing suite allows you to publish your designs to all connected social media accounts simultaneously. 

If you wish to edit your design at this stage, click on the ‘Edit design’ button given under your design. 

Once you have saved the edits to your design (if any) and selected accounts for publishing, click ‘Next’.

  • Add a caption to your post. If you’re posting a video, you’ll also need to add a title to the video.

  • If you want to publish your post immediately, click on ‘Publish’. You can also schedule your post by clicking the calendar icon beside the publish button. 

You can view your published and scheduled posts in the ‘My social posts’ tab on the My Stuff page and the Content Planner. Use the Content Planner to review older content and plan for the future. 

Publishing costs

Publishing (and scheduling) on social media is not free, though if you've purchased the design you need to post, then it's free. Here's how it works. 

If you're not subscribed to PosterMyWall Premium or Premium plus, you can still publish your designs for free, however the published design will have a watermark. However, you can avoid this by purchasing the design in advance, or by using the 'pay and publish' option in the publishing interface. Content with GettyImages cost an additional $2 to purchase and post. 

If you want to publish without paying, just use the slider, as highlighted below.

For Premium and Premium Plus subscribers, all images and videos are free to post, and will not contain a watermark.
