This article covers link frames - how to attach a call-to-action to every link you share. With link frames, you can continue to be a presence with your users even after they click on a link of content you shared and leaves your social profile.

What is a Link Frame?
The idea of the link frame is simple. It is a frame with a fixed header and shared link content displaying right under it. Take a look at this tweet:
Now, click on the link inside of this tweet. You will be taken to the article but notice the header. It is completely custom!
We shared this article with our followers, our followers clicked on the link but we continue to be a presence - our followers are still aware of our brand and are still able to click on our action button.
Design Link Frames
To design a link frame, go to Publishing then Link Frames:
Click Create New and then you'll see this screen:
Add in all the information including the logo, color and the link where the button goes to when clicked:
|You can either upload a logo or use an image URL|
You can use hex color code for the frame background
|Text for the call-to-action button|
|Change the button color|
|Landing page the users go to when they click on the button|
|Frame Position:*||Choose whether you want the link frame to appear at the top of the page, bottom of the page, or both|
|Custom Script:*||Add marketing tags or tracking codes|
*Advanced and Pro Plan
Adding Link Frame to Post
When scheduling posts, simply click on Advanced Options and the link frame you created will be available for you to choose when sharing content from 3rd party websites.
The # of link frames are limited by plan. Standard Plan is 1 Link Frame per Project // Advanced Plan is 3 Link Frame per Project // Pro Plan is 10 Link Frames per projects.
Why Link Frames May Not Be Working
1. Link Shortening is Disabled
If you've turned off link shortening in your project's settings or post settings, we will not be able to add the link frame.
This is because we rely on our built in link shortener to be able to do this 😃
2. Website Blocks iFrames
Some websites block iFrames and we rely on the ability to iFrame links to add our Link Frame.
If the website you're sharing blocks iFrames, we won't be able to add Link Frames to those links.
You can check if the link your sharing has an iFrame blocking script by using this third party iFrame checker.
If the link you are checking on results in a blank box, after clicking step 2 Check frame killer script, it means the website you're sharing blocks iFrames.
