How to get the most out of your Publisher

How to get the most out of your Publisher

Overview

Agorapulse publishes and schedules to Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+ and Instagram — or all of them at once!

 

Instagram business profiles that are linked to a Facebook business page can publish directly from Agorapulse without the need of a mobile device. Direct publishing can be enabled while creating a post.

 

Bulk uploads make it easy to fill a month’s content calendar in minutes.

 

 

Posts can be uploaded in bulk from a csv file to schedule or queue and repeat.

You can also upload groups of images to schedule or queue and repeat.

 

 

The RSS option enables you to collect previous blog posts from a website or blog, select the ones you like and create posts out of each one to schedule or queue and repeat.

 

 

Automatic publishing is made possible with publishing queues (sets of recurring time slots that can be separated into topics or categories). Posts added to your queue will get in line to be published automatically upon the next available time slot.

 

Scheduled evergreen content can be easily rescheduled or repeated.

 

Queued evergreen content set to repeat will get back in line to be published again like kids on a water slide.

 

 

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

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, Instagram or Twitter profiles.

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.

NOTES: Facebook & Google+ restrict third party tools from altering link previews. Due to Instagram’s restrictions, it is not possible to include a link within an Instagram post.

 

Add UTM Parameters to any post with a link in order to track their performance. You can add as many custom parameters as you like.

 

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.

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 and can be separated into categories if you’d like.

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. Queued posts and tweets set to repeat will keep getting back in line to be published again for as long or as many times as you specify..

 

Bulk uploads

You can upload posts and tweets in bulk from a csv file to be queued or scheduled.

 

If you’re uploading content to be queued, you can save time by including these items only:

Text in Column A

Link in Column B (if applicable)

 

You’ll then have the option to assign each item to a queue category individually or assign all items to the same queue category at once.

If you’re uploading content to be scheduled, you’ll need to include dates and times for each item in columns C and D.

 

To upload images in bulk, just drag them to the box labelled ‘Upload Images’, and choose ‘Schedule’ or ‘Add to queue’.

 

Then, you can craft posts our of each one and set them to repeat if you like.

The RSS option enables you to collect previous blog posts from a website or blog, select the ones you like and create posts out of each one to schedule or queue and repeat.

 

Drafts and workflows

Whether you’re publishing content now, queueing it, or scheduling it for later, you can send it to one of your collaborators for review or approval.

 

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.

 

Labels

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

 

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

 

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

 

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 and Queued, rearrange queued items. Drag and drop items to change their order within the queue or move them to a different category. 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 personal profiles

Instagram business profiles that are linked to a Facebook business page can publish, schedule or queue posts directly from Agorapulse without the need for a mobile device. You can enable Instagram direct publishing from any Instagram profile’s publishing tab.

Once direct publishing is enabled, your Instagram business profiles that are linked to a Facebook business page can publish, schedule and queue posts without a mobile device, just like the other social networks.

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

You’ll need the Agorapulse mobile app.
