How to get the most out of your Publisher

How to get the most out of your Publisher

Agorapulse publishes to Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+ — or all of them at once. You can also schedule items to be published later.

You can set up automatic publishing by creating a queue. A queue is a set of recurring time slots for automatic publishing. Posts added to your queue will get in line to be published automatically upon the next available time slot.

 

Instagram does not permit publishing from anything but a mobile device. You can build and schedule your Instagram posts from your desktop to be published later via your mobile device.

 

Your team can collaborate by setting up publishing workflows and create content drafts to be approved.

Open Agorapulse in another tab and follow along!

 

Publishing as one or multiple social profiles

You can schedule, queue, or publish a post from anywhere in Agorapulse.

 

Select which social profiles you’d like to use to publish this content. Your tweet might also make a great Facebook or LinkedIn post — so save time and publish your message to from multiple profiles across multiple social channels!

 

Create your message. Type the @ symbol to mention Facebook pages or Twitter accounts. Agorapulse will make suggestions as you type.

NOTE: Due to Instagram’s restrictions, it is not possible to include a link within an Instagram post.

 

Add an image, video or a link. Links will autopopulate with a default thumbnail image. You can remove this image or change it by uploading a new one.

NOTE: Facebook & Google+ restrict third party tools from altering link previews.

 

 

You can preview how your post will look on each network by clicking the network’s icon above the draft preview window.

 

The draft preview window also allows you to edit your post for each social network. Edits made for one network won’t affect the others, so you can shorten your content for Twitter, lengthen it for LinkedIn or add hashtags for specific networks but not others.

EXAMPLE: When this post is published to Twitter, it will contain the hashtag #Jedi, whereas in Facebook and Google+ it will not.

 

Scheduling and queueing posts

Select ‘Schedule’ and ‘Next’ to publish this post at a specific date and time.

 

Enter the date and time you’d like this post to be published on each of the profiles you selected.

 

If you’ve got a good piece of content, you can set it to repeat…

 

or, you can schedule this post again as many times as you’d like.   

 

What’s a queue?

Posts and tweets added to the queue will get in line for automatic publishing upon the next available recurring time slot. Automatic publishing time slots are predetermined by you in each profile’s settings.

NOTE: Each of your social profiles has its own unique queue.

 

Select ‘Add to queue’ and ‘Next’ to add this post to each profile’s queue for automatic publishing.

 

You can add this post to the top of each profile’s queue to be published next or to the bottom of each profile’s queue to be published last.

 

You can also set queued content to repeat automatically.

 

Drafts and workflows

Whether you’re publishing it now, queueing this post, or scheduling it for later, you can send it to one of your collaborators for approval with a custom note.

 

Drafts can be passed amongst multiple collaborators (one at a time) and edited by each one. Drafts will not publish until they are approved.

 

Using Agorapulse team roles can help you collaborate even more efficiently.

Agorapulse moderators can create, queue, and schedule drafts only. Their content will not be published unless an Editor or Admin approves it.

Agorapulse Editors and Admins can not only queue, schedule, and publish content without approval, but they can also approve Moderator’s drafts for publishing.

Agorapulse Admins can manage team roles from the Team menu.

 

Tags

You can assign any number of custom tags to your posts as you’re publishing them.

 

Your Reports will then show you which topics (tag) reach and engage the best with your audience.  

 

You’ll also see a breakdown of each profile’s conversations by topic (tag).

 

Custom Publishing Groups

You can create custom publishing groups for quicker publishing by clicking ‘Manage this menu’.

 

Then, drag and drop profiles into groups.

 

Now you can just select this group when creating content instead of selecting each profile individually.

 

This is especially useful for agencies and consultants who manage client groups.

 

Managing queued and scheduled posts

Drag and drop scheduled items on the calendar to re-schedule.

 

Hold shift while dragging any scheduled item to copy it to another date.

 

Select Publishing, Queued, and List to re-arrange queued items. Drag and drop items to change their order within the queue. Click on any item to edit or delete it.

 

Click on any scheduled or queued item to edit, delete, or assign it to another team member.

with a custom note.

Scheduling to Instagram

Agorapulse makes it easy to build and schedule your Instagram posts from a laptop or desktop device. Due to Instagram’s restrictions, you’ll still need to publish Instagram posts from a mobile device via your Instagram app, so we’ll provide you with push notifications that make publishing your scheduled Instagram content easy.

You’ll need the Agorapulse mobile app.
