To get started with Oktopost, the very first step is to connect your social profiles, company pages, and group pages. The more profiles and pages you add, the easier it is to expand your brand's social reach.
Oktopost enables you to add your personal social profiles, company pages and group pages that you manage, as well as those of colleagues, to post on their behalf.
For each social network, Oktopost helps you manage the following channels:
|Personal Profiles, Company and Showcase Pages|
|Personal Profiles, Pages and Groups|
Adding Social Profiles
To connect a personal profile or a company page of which you are an administrator of:
- Go to the Social Profiles tab in your account, click on the Connect a Profile button and select the profile you want to add.
- You will be redirected to the social network in order to grant Oktopost permissions to access your social account.
Make sure to approve all of the required permissions otherwise, Oktopost will not be able to use the profile. Once the process is complete, you will be redirected back to Oktopost and the profile will be available for you to manage.
Instagram Business Pages
Note that for Instagram you will be required to authorize your business profile both on Instagram and Facebook. Make sure that you're logged in to the correct profile on both platforms before beginning the process.
To manage your Facebook Group with Oktopost, you will have to install the Oktopost Facebook Groups app.
Adding Your Colleagues Profiles
Apart from adding your own profiles, Oktopost lets you extend an invite to your colleagues and use the profiles or pages they manage on their behalf.
To connect a colleagues profile, simply choose the Invite a Colleague option when connecting a new profile and send your colleague an invite to connect their profiles or pages to Oktopost.
Your colleague will receive an email invitation containing links to add his or her profiles. Once he or she approves the permission process, the social profile he or she added will appear in your interface.
