PREVIOUS CLIENT UPLOAD - Previous Clients for School Holidays (Approx 1 hour)

Upload Checklist

Download and use this checklist for each previous and new client uploaded.

Automation Update

If your Automations are active the first thing to do is -

  • Go to the Automation they are currently in (probably Apply Tag: Previous Client - District) | View Reports
  • Manually take them out of this Automation otherwise they will stay in both – this is very important
  • Then go to their Contact listing - remove the previous client tag and add the client tag. Then under the Emails tab scroll down and check they are out of the previous automation and you've just activated the client automation.

Then get any images you need etc from the client or their FB page or website. Then go to your holiday spreadsheet and add the business as an Advertiser

Canva Updates

Go to Canva and create the following images –

  • FBOG (Facebook Open Graph) – 600 x 314 px – you will use this same image for both under the Social tab and for your side advert - if Summer holidays create 2 x of these images for two separate posts
  • If a Sponsor create top banner – 800 x 150 px
  • Any images you want to include in the client page
  • Create a Facebook Video image (use the template size as it won't work otherwise) for a video post

NOTE: You may wish to use some previous images for the above so see what you have on file for the client.

WP Updates

Go to WordPress -

  • Go to your current listing in Businesses
  • Add the client tag in the right column (this makes it easier if you are just searching for current clients under Business)
  • Change membership and do page updates
  • Check all SEO links and images including social FB (fbog – 600 x 314 px) and Twitter links

If you change your social image, get Facebook to update its cache by -

  • Updating your listing
  • Go to top of the Facebook social section and click on the “Ask Facebook to update its cache” link
  • Once in click on “Scrape Again”

Go to -

Sliders | Find your Region slider

You may already have an image in the paused slider in which case just check details and set up new scheduling; or select File from your Computer

If adding a new image,click on the modify pencil in the top right corner of your image and –

  • Change your Title
  • Add your Alt text
  • Add your URL link
  • Tick open URL in new window
  • Tick schedule slide
  • Enter your start and end date and time
  • Save Metadata
  • The exit out

If you are also adding a Sponsor banner go to your Slider for this too and repeat above. If this is not being done before the Automations are activated (eg clients who have signed up later) try and set up as many clients as possible at one time as you will need to set up with new tags and Automations so you can then keep them together in the new tag and Automation.

Then go to the Giveaway page slider -

  • Activate just your client slide
  • Also re-activate whole slider from schedule option in left menu (if it’s not already active)

Then go to the School Holiday Dates page slider -
