- Sign In with your temporary password. You will be directed to a page with three tabs that walk you through the advocacy sign in process.
- The first tab, “Manage Your Account”, is simply a summary of your business and personal information. The first time you land here, you will be asked to change your password and confirm.
- The second tab, “Connect Your Social Networks”, is where you connect your social media networks- Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter. Click on the “ Connect Me” icons for each network.
You will have to connect at least one social network to be added to the NewzSocial platform. You may also connect multiple networks to broaden your advocacy options. Click on Continue to proceed to the next tab.
- The third tab, “Select your Social Targets” is where you give permissions to post on various network touchpoints. The more touchpoints you add, the easier it is to distribute your content across multiple networks, enabling you to reach and engage with your desired audience, irrespective of which network touchpoints they are connected to.
For each social network, NewzSocial supports the following:
LinkedIn: Personal Profiles, Discussion Groups and Company Pages
Facebook: Personal Profiles, Company Page, Groups
Twitter: Personal Twitter Handle and Company Twitter Handle
For your Facebook and LinkedIn networks, the system automatically displays all the pages and groups you administer and any discussion groups that you belong to.
Under each touchpoint, you will see an option for Approval- Automatic or Manual. These relate to whether you want the post to flow automatically to your permitted touchpoints or whether you prefer to approve each post manually, which will require an additional step on your part. Click on the Approval Mode you prefer.
You can also change the number of permitted posts by editing the number in the pop-up box and checking it off.
Similarly, you can edit the time period allocated with post limits by editing the number in the pop-up box and checking it off.
Ensure that you add and give permissions to post on all the required social touchpoints for each network. This is a simple process of hovering on the “+” icon next to the social media profile in the column “Available Social Touchpoints” and clicking on it. This will transfer the touchpoint to the right column, “ Selected Social Touchpoints”.
If you do not select any target, the following screen will appear and you will not be able to continue to the next page.
Lastly, click on the green Continue button to be transferred to the Home Page or NewzSocialWeb page.
