Posting content updates to social media automatically
Social media is fantastic for increasing your reach and growing your audience. Use it to automatically drive traffic to your site, by posting to socials automatically whenever you publish new content.
- Connect your Zapier account between your site/app and social media to post automatically
- Next, here we show you how to set up the Zaps for some common social media websites (Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn) - you can hook up to many more using Zapier integrations)
- Once those are set up you will be able to instantly send notifications out via email, social media and push notifications directly from the content form.
Set up the SupaPass Trigger
- Choose app and event: After connecting the SupaPass Zapier integration to your SupaPass account you can select the Trigger Event from the dropdown underneath in the Zapier “Zap Editor” window. Select “New Content” and then click Continue.
- Choose account: select the account you want to use. If you only have one SupaPass app there’ll only be one to choose from in the dropdown menu. If you have multiple accounts, repeat the connection steps for each of your SupaPass accounts, you can select the one you wish to use in this Zap from the list.
- Zap Name: name your Zap something sensible and related to the account you're posting to e.g. "New Content to Twitter".
- Test Trigger: Click continue, just to check everything is working. If not, check all the previous steps carefully, and if the problem persists contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
