How Do I Use ClickSocials & Publisher For My Social Media Posts?

In this article, you'll learn how to find and access ClickSocials and Publisher for all of your social media posts.


After you've logged into your ClickDesigns account and are on your dashboard, to access ClickSocials, simply select the "Templates" section above your dashboard.

This is going to allow you to view the different categories of done-for-you templates to choose from. To access ClickSocials, choose the "Socials" category and click on it.


Opening up ClickSocials is going to show you different categories of social media platforms, as seen here. The following social media platforms covered by ClickSocials are Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter, and LinkedIn.

On the left side under each category, you'll be able to view all the different types and styles of post templates according to each category, as well as their dimensions.

When you scroll through the templates underneath each social media platform, a button that reads "View More" should allow you to view more of the many templates that ClickSocials has to offer.


Now, let's try creating some social media posts or assets that we can schedule out with the help of Publisher. To start, click on the "Publisher" section on the top portion of your account.

This is going to provide you with a calendar where you can personalize and schedule out posts for the upcoming months, weeks, or days.


When scheduling posts on Publisher, you'll need to add and connect all of your necessary social media accounts. You can connect your Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter, and LinkedIn accounts; and you can even categorize said posts for Google Drive, Dropbox, and AWS S3.

To connect your social media accounts on Publisher for ClickSocials, simply click on your Profile to open up the dropdown menu, and choose "Settings."

From here, you can set your Google Drive, Dropbox, and AWS S3.

To set up your accounts on certain social media apps, click on "Apps."

This is going to allow you to view all the different social media platforms where you can connect your accounts to schedule your posts on ClickSocials.


To connect your account(s), click on a social media platform, and a pop-up similar to this one should appear. From here, clicking on the blue "Connect" will sync said account to your ClickDesigns. Note that the API of Facebook specifically refreshes every 60 days. In this case, you may have to reconnect your account.

Once your social media accounts are connected, you can now create and customize your own posts with the help of ClickSocials.


Going back to ClickSocials, feel free to choose from any of the templates for each corresponding social media platform. For this tutorial, let's try choosing a template for Facebook, under the "FB Timeline Post" category.

Once you find a template you want to work with, simply hover over it and click on the "Edit" icon. This is going to open up the ClickDesigns Editor.

From here, feel free to edit your template to your liking. Play around with the Editor features and be creative! When finished, don't forget to click on the "Save" button.


Now that we've edited a design - we can now schedule it as a Facebook post. Going back to the calendar on Publisher, set it to the month you wish to schedule the post on.

Hover over a day you'd like to schedule the post, and from here, click on the "Plus" icon.

Now, you can easily select multiple videos and photos to post on the scheduled day.

When finalized, click on "Publish."


Clicking on "Publish" is going to provide you with more information on your scheduled post. Here, you can select a platform, type, and even generate a caption using our Social AI Writer!

Once finished with all of the post details, click on "Schedule." If you want to go back to it later, you can also always save it as a draft too.

And Voila! That's how easy it is to seamlessly utilize ClickSocials and Publisher to schedule your social media posts!
