Why am I getting the Error: "You cannot schedule in bulk duplicate posts as they're prone to being marked as spam"?

While it might be important to repeat the same content for your social media strategy, not all platforms allow you to do that.

When posting in bulk on your socials you might get the error: "You cannot schedule in bulk duplicate posts as they're prone to being marked as spam" if you're trying to post similar or duplicative content.

Workaround #1:

If you're importing a CSV file for bulk posting, you might have a lot of content you need to go through. To find and remove the duplicate posts, you can use this function from Excel.

To find the duplicate posts using Excel:

Select the cells you want to check for duplicates.

Make sure to select both the Message and Link/Media URLs columns.

On the Home tab select Conditional Formatting > Highlight Cells Rules > Duplicate Values.

In the box next to values with, pick the formatting you want to apply to the duplicate values, and then click OK.

To remove the duplicate posts using Excel:

Select the range of cells that has duplicate values you want to remove.
On the Data tab select Remove Duplicates, and then under Columns, check or uncheck the columns where you want to remove the duplicates.

Click on OK.

Workaround #2:

After finding the duplicate content using the function from Excel, you can spin text and images by using the Spintax Generator in Publer.

Moreover, you can also use the Publer AI Assist to help you with the Spintax Variations.

By having at least 10 variations per post, then each time Publer will choose one of the 10 variations at random, which will avoid duplicate content.
