Content Asset Distribution

Content can also be promoted on various social channels like Twitter, Salesforce, and LinkedIn.  If you use Kapost's link shortener to shorten a piece of content's published URL and include that shortened link in your promotional Tweet, Facebook post, etc., Kapost will track the number of clicks that shortened link received and display the number above the appropriate promotion.

To capture clicks on links in promotions, the link must have been shortened using Kapost's link shortener.  Other metrics around promotions like retweets, likes, etc. are also displayed next to the appropriate promotion.
