Did you know that you can use an image or video in a twitter poll? Here’s our step by step guide of how to achieve this:
Step 1 – Create a Twitter Ads Account
To do this go to http://ads.twitter.com and log in with your usual twitter log on details if you are not already logged into twitter.
You will then need to follow the onscreen instructions to set up your account including adding debit or credit card details. Note you your card will not be charged for creating poll tweets provided you don’t select the promoted option (more about this later).
Step 2 – Log into the Brand Networks Composer
To do this go to the https://composer.bn.co/ and sign in with your twitter account details. If you are logging in the Brand Networks Composer for the first time you will need to follow the onscreen instructions to Authorise the Brand Networks Composer to access your Twitter account . You will also need to select the Twitter Ad account that you wish to use.
Step 3 – Select the media poll option
Once you have completed step 2 you should be presented with a screen like the one in the screenshot. From here you need to select the Create a Media Poll option.
Step 4– Create your tweet
Then add some text, an optional image or video, and some hashtags into your tweet.
If you have issues with adding the image or video then use the twitter media library which is found in your twitter ads account under the creatives menu. If you add the image using this method then you will need to add you image or video to the media library before you use the Brand Networks Composer to create your tweet.
Now add 2-4 polls options and then select the amount of time you would like the poll to run for (between 5 minutes and 7 days.)
In the publish details section untick the Promoted Only box if with you want to do a free twitter poll.
Next select whether you would like to publish the tweet now or schedule it for a later date. Once you have done this then click tweet and your tweet will either be published straight away or scheduled for a later date depending on what you selected.
And that’s all there is to it.
