Running a bulk link/CSV campaign

A bulk link campaign is typically selected when you wish to generate several unique media links for your audience in one go. The audience information is a prerequisite for activating this type of campaign.

Bulk link campaigns require you to upload your audience information to Nexweave via a CSV file, following which unique media links are generated for each recipient within the CSV list.


These unique media links may then be uploaded to Email marketing or chat platforms to share with your audience. 

Within Campaigns start by clicking on Create a New Campaign.


The Campaign process is divided into 2 tabs: Configure & Activate.

Let’s start by configuring the campaign.

Configuring the Campaign
