How do I create and share a post in GetResponse Social Ads Creator?

GetResponse Social Ads Creator lets you create simple template-based animations or images – called posts– that you can share on your social media. Use them to promote your seasonal deals, temporary promotions or to simply wish your followers a good week.

What types of posts can I make?

You can choose between two types of posts:

  1. Animation: a gif-like moving image. Animation posts can come in two types:
  • single picture (with optional text),
  • a short sequence of pictures.

    Note: the animation style comes with the template and you can’t edit it.

    2. Image: a static picture with optional text, without animations.

Can I check how my post is doing?

Once your post is shared, you can keep track of how it’s performing. This will give you useful feedback on whether or not your posts are catching the eye and resonating with audiences. If the responses seem lukewarm, this might be a signal to adjust your marketing strategy.

To check your statistics, go to the Posts section and look at the Shared gallery. Under each shared post, you will see performance stats.

Tap the post to see detailed statistics. These include:

  • number of likes and comments for Facebook Pages and Groups,
  • number of likes and retweets for Twitter,
  • number of likes and comments on Instagram.

Note:

Facebook doesn’t allow external apps like GetResponse Social Ads Creator to pull statistics directly from your personal Facebook profile, so you need to check the post statistics for Facebook in your personal Facebook account.
Additionally, GetResponse Social Ads Creator doesn’t show who exactly interacted with your posts, or the comments on your posts. To check the detailed performance of your shared posts, open your social media apps and check the posts directly in your profiles.
