How to add a Twitter profile
Adding a Twitter profile is pretty straight forward process.
You just need to have the username and password for the profile you want to add.
We support both profiles, the ones that have two factor authentication enabled as well as the one without two factor authentication.
Here is a video that shows the steps needed to add a Twitter profile.
How to add a Facebook page
Adding a Facebook page is also a simple process.
However, if you want to give us access to only a subset of your pages, then you need to be careful.
This video shows you exactly how it works and how to change permissions from Business Integrations settings on Facebook.
How to add a Facebook Group
Adding a Facebook group is not as straight forward as a Facebook page.
You have to be the admin of the group you want to add, or the admin must have given permissions for the group members to post.
Facebook wants you to install the apps you want to approve on your Facebook group.
RecurPost has been approved by Facebook and thus the app is available on the Facebook app store and you can download it from there.
This video shows you how to do that step by step.
How to add a LinkedIn profile
Adding a LinkedIn profile is a straight forward process as well. You simply click on add, type your username and password and you are good to go.
Check this video out for steps:
How to add a LinkedIn company
The difference between a LinkedIn profile and company is that one LinkedIn profile can have multiple companies inside it. When you sign up for LinkedIn, you get a profile. Then you can go on to create multiple company pages. Here are the steps to add a LinkedIn company (page) to RecurPost.
How to add a Google My Business location
Adding a Google My Business location is also a straight forward process with one exception.
Please note that as of January 2021 GMB only allows you to add those locations that have not been marked as chains by them.
There is no standard definition of what is a chain, but when they mark a location as chain we will not let you add that to your RecurPost account.
As long as you are a manager (or owner) for the location it will show up in the list to add it to RecurPost. In this video we show you how to add your GMB locations to RecurPost.
How to add Instagram Personal Profile
Facebook does not allow posting on Instagram personal profile directly. This is the same for every social media scheduler out there.
We do have a workaround for this limitation. This is via our mobile app.
When it is time to post on your account, we send you a push notification. By clicking on the push notification you will be able to post on your Instagram account.
How to add Instagram Business Profile
Instagram Business profile is different than the personal profile as in this case we support posting their directly.
You can create a Zapier Zap to post on your business profile directly. It will require you to create a Zapier account and connect it to RecurPost. Once you do that it will work automatically.
If you don’t want to do that, you can also post on Instagram business profiles via push notifications. This is similar to the Instagram personal notification as explained above.
Here is a video on how to add your Instagram Business Account.
