If you need some help adding your social media accounts to your website, we've got a few simple tips that will get you connected, plus some social media tools you might not have known about.
The first thing you want to do is connect your various social media accounts to your Atwill Media website. This makes it easy for customers to find, and view your social accounts without having to guess their URL or search for them online.
To add your social media accounts, your first need to be logged into your Atwill Media website. Once you're logged in, click on Site Tools on your toolbar. Then, find the button for Social Media Options.
Once you're in Social Media Options, you can add the appropriate URL for each of the social media accounts you or your business owns, such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, YouTube, and more! To add your social media URL, simply go to your profile page for the social profile you want to add, copy the website URL, and then paste it into the corresponding text box for that social media account.
Click Save Changes at the bottom of the screen when you're finished, and your social media profile buttons will be added to your website's footer! If you'd like to add or remove social media buttons later, you can always copy and paste new URLs, or delete old ones, through Social Media Options.
If you want to add your actual Facebook or Twitter feeds directly onto a page of your website, Atwill Media makes it super simple to do so.
Simply log into your Atwill Media website, and then click on Add To Page on your toolbar. Go to the Social section, the third option of the sidebar, and then click either Facebook Posts or Twitter Feed to add the corresponding feed. Note that you must have the URL of your Facebook profile copied to your clipboard before you can add this feed. For your Twitter feed, all you have to do is type your username into the text box and your Twitter feed will automatically be pulled from Twitter.com.
If you no longer want to display your Facebook or Twitter feeds on your webpage, simply click the red X in Edit Mode to delete them.
If you want to add a box that displays your social media icons somewhere else your page besides in the footer, you can click Social Media Icons, and add a content box that displays all of your social media links that you've already added to your website in Social Media Options.
This tool gives you more versatility for your social media icons, so you can place them anywhere on the page.
