We are looking to add a url link to the images that we post to our social media without having the url link in the body of the post. Is that possible? Thank you in advance!

Hey @KOS @BigTFlyer this is not currently possible using the HubSpot social publishing tool. These are features that are currently reserved for posting directly off the LinkedIn and Twitter platforms.

Hey @BigTFlyer can you clarify further? Are you using the HubSpot Social tool to publish these images? Are you referring to LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook or all of the above?

I see these posts are quite old. Is it possible meanwhile? We are now 2019 and we just onboarded onto the Hubspot Platform. Linking the url to the images still seems to be an issue? Is this correct or have you developed a work around meanwhile?

We utilize our Facebook and LinkedIn images to publicize job postings on our website and used to have a button on the image that was able to lead to a specified URL when we were using Sprout Social. Is this something Hubspot is planning to implement?

I'd like an answer to this too.  When you post through HubSpot the image has no link so we are relying on people to click the link in the text.  I even had someone ask we to send then the link in the comments from one of my posts even though the link was already in the text!!!

You naturally click on the image not the link!

Hey gang !   here's a workaround I found.   it's free

there is a paid version that allows you to see stats and manage many pictures.

For our side, we are using it to make custom banners of speakers for a conference.   we ask them to post it to there networks.  Nice to know who are best influencers are 🙂  enjoy.

Hi Joe, Not sure what you mean? The image is just a png saved in our media files and dropped in.  Am I missing something?
