How Content Automation Works

How Social Media Hammer Works

Social Media Hammer is super simple to use. It can create a 300 post bulk upload csv for Hootsuite in two minutes. The csv will have date and time, content, and links. It’s free to try so let’s get started.

Enter Your URL

social media content creator

Enter your website address including the http:// or https://. If you don’t you will get an error message like this:

The checkbox is to tell Social Media Hammer whether or not to include content with your emails address. We don’t recommend creating social media posts that include your email address. Since Social Media Hammer pulls content from your website, there’s a good chance that it will pull your email address.

Create Schedule

Following these simple steps:

  1. Select the start date for your social media calendar
  2. Select the end date for your social media calendar
  3. Choose if you want to post every day of the week (select Daily) or if you want to choose specific days (select Weekly)
  4. Keep Interval at 1 if you want to post on the same days every week. If you want to post every second week choose 2; for every third week choose 3, and so on.
  5. Select how many posts you want each day. For many people, Facebook schedules might only have one or fewer posts a day; Twitter usually has multiple posts per day. You can choose the platforms on the next screen.
  6. Do you want the post at the same time each day or do you want random times?
    • If you choose Random then you will see the following:

Enter any additional hashtags you want to use. Then enter how many hashtags you want to add to each post. Be careful not to add to many hashtags to Twitter. Even at 280 characters, you can run out of room and your post will be shortened.
