Finding the Facebook Post in the Monthly Value Program
For each Monthly Value Program, we provide you with a post to add on Facebook. To get the copy (words) and image for each Facebook post in the Monthly Value Program, you will need to download two files from the month's campaign you wish to use:
- The Support File
- The Social Media Image
So, for example, if you wanted to use the February 2018 Digital Marketing Campaign, you would take the following steps:
- Login to your Paperless Agent Dashboard
- Click on the course card titled "Monthly Value Program"
- Select the chapter titled "February 2018 - Home Design Trends to Watch in 2018"
- Click the section titled "DOWNLOAD: Campaign Collateral"
- Click the "Download" button next to the Support File and Social Media Image
