How to Use Postradamus to Find Viral Content
In this video, you'll see how you can use Postradamus to find viral content from different sources or create your own content for your posts.
Postradamus allows you to search many different sites from one central place, and it also allows you to save any content you find with just a click of a button.
Find on Web
First option we'll explore is searching for content on the web.
Postradamus can pull in content from a lot of different platforms. You can search Facebook or Twitter for posts, YouTube for videos, Amazon for products, Pixabay for free photos, and more.
To search in Postradamus, you will use keywords or phrases: for example, if you want to look for content about pandas, you will use the keyword panda, or phrase cute panda. If you want to search for chocolate cakes, you will probably use keywords like chocolate or cake or the phrase chocolate cake.
Some sites have additional search options, which you will see above or below the search bar.
For example, you can search your timeline or your lists on Twitter, you can filter YouTube videos by category or duration, you can specify the amount of search options for Pinterest, and so on.
Below every search box, you will see the box "Don't show content I've already saved". This filter has a purpose if you have already searched for a certain type of content from Postradamus, and saved this content. Leaving this checkbox checked means that you do not want to see posts that you have already saved in your lists in Postradamus. Turning it off means you will see all search results, including the ones that you have already saved before.
Every search result is shown as a "post" in Postradamus. Each post has 3 options: Select, Send Now, and Delete.
Select is used to choose the posts that you would like to save, and you can also use the Select All button to select all posts from current search results.
Selected posts can be saved to a list that you specify, but we will go over lists in the next video.
Send Now will allow you to instantly, manually, send this post to one of your social sites. You will also be able to edit the post before sending it.
If you delete a post, it will no longer be shown to you in the search results once you run the search again.
In the top-right corner, you will see sorting options. You can sort search results by different criteria, ascending or descending. This criteria will change depending on the site you're searching. For example, Twitter tweets can be sorted by the number of retweets, favorites, or date and time of creation, YouTube videos can be sorted by number of likes, views, or comments, and so on.
Find on Computer
This option is used for uploading images from your computer to Postradamus and turning them into posts. You can drag and drop images in this window, or you can click and select images manually.
Maximum file size per image is 6 MB - if you upload an image that is larger than that, you will see a red X over it. In that case, you should try resizing your image to less than 6 MB and uploading it again.
If you want to remove one of the uploaded images, just click Remove File.
Find in Existing List
This option is useful when you've already created lists in Postradamus, and you want to duplicate some of the posts, or re-use them to in a new list.
By default, the search results will show you all posts you have across all your lists in your current Postradamus profile.
Click on the dropdown to select a specific list you want to see posts from. You can further filter your search by specifying the text that appears in the post, the category that was assigned to the post, and so on.
Import from CSV
Final option is importing content from a CSV file. This method allows the most customization and is definitely recommended if you want to create your own content.
We made a separate video for importing and exporting CSV files, so you can refer to it for more in-depth instructions.
You can simply drag and drop a CSV file, and Postradamus will convert each row into a post. You can then select your posts and add them to a list.
