TIP: It's also very good to use Image Link Ads on Snapchat, IGTV (Instagram videos), Youtube videos or any videos.

How to get many videos from any Youtube tag, generate social posts with your advertisement shown to those who click your links:

  1. Make a Youtube Source Formula in Bulk Creator, the automation dashboard included with RiteBoost and the RiteKit Package:
  2. Check the Enhance section, be sure to select the right Link Ad to use, and Save at the bottom of the Formula.
  3. Select posts, Enhance, open any that need manual polishing
  4. Set social profile(s) in Add to queue, then hit the Add to Queue button.


  • You can click the edit button beside the Formula name, when the Formula is selected from your Formulas on the left. This way, you can constrain to give you less videos that you would not share - such as my example in the screenshot above which excludes those with "CompetitorName1," "CompetitorName2" (you would note the competitor's actual names, of course).
  • Image Link Ads, rather than video ads work better when embedding them on Youtube, Vimeo, IGTV, etc. - any type of videos you are sharing as Rite.lys.

How you will mainly use this unique ability, only possible with RiteKit

  • Find Youtube accounts that offer great stuff for your target customer or audience.
  • Advertise on them while attracting viewers of the content (and your Link Ads) based on the content and big accounts you are sharing to social.
  • You may need to do some research on the web to isolate the best Snapchat accounts to share, based on their popularity as well as fit for your desired audience.

Note that for links shortened with, Facebook and LinkedIn will not accept them. This is beyond our control; FB and LinkedIn are now blocking all short links created of full URLs. So, if using RiteForge, RiteBoost for scheduling posts, we suggest that you do not shorten links for posts you schedule to LinkedIn or Facebook. If just using, even with custom subdomain, please use them in Tweets, emails, IG comments - and everywhere else - just not in FB or LinkedIn.
