Social Marketing with ClickDimensions allows you to create, schedule, and publish social posts while tracking the analytics from within your Dynamics environment!
ClickDimensions customers with an Embedded license will be able to access Social Marketing with ClickDimensions as an embedded feature. The Basic license solution includes support for up to 5 social profiles.
If you are interested in increasing the number of available social profiles or accessing additional social marketing functionality, you can contact your ClickDimensions Customer Success Manager for information regarding upgrading to the Basic or Business social packages.
To use this embedded social feature, connect your various social profiles, then you will need to set up a separate CNAME within your DNS host. Once set up, it is easy to create, schedule, and publish social posts and report on the interactions, as well as tie these social marketing efforts to CRM Campaigns.
Setting up a Social Account with our Social Wizard
The first thing you will need to do is set up your Social Marketing account. To do this, you will need to navigate to Settings and Support > ClickDimensions Settings > Social Marketing Settings.
If you have not already set up an account, then this will open our Social Wizard to help guide you through the account creation process. If you instead try to select "Social Profile Configuration" to create a Social Profile before creating your social account, you will receive an error and will not be able to create a profile. The first screen of the Social Wizard requires your acknowledgement of our Account Owner and CNAME requirements:
After reading and acknowledging these requirements, the next page will request the details for your desired Account Owner. Please note that the email address must be unique and cannot be used for a Social Account for another environment:
After entering your Account Owner's details, you will then need to enter the CNAME that you would like to use for your Social Links. For more details, please see our CNAME article.
Upon clicking the 'Create Account' button here, our service will display a success screen and finalize the account creation process so that you can begin creating profiles.
