How Can I Create Posts in SocialBee?
Once you’ve connected your profiles, you need to start creating the content you want to set out. If you’ve chosen a Concierge Service, your designated bee will do this for you. Otherwise, please refer to our Content Documentation to see how to create your posts and your categories.
How Can I Create a Schedule in SocialBee?
Are you all done with your content? Time to schedule it for posting. If you’ve chosen a Concierge Service, your designated bee will do this for you, according to the best practices or your specifications. Otherwise, please refer to our Posting Documentation.
How Do I Start Publishing My Content?
Now you’re all set up! All that’s left to do is enable your content so it gets published. On your main dashboard, you have an overview of your accounts and what’s enabled on each. You can click the toggles to enable or disable the Content.
On this page, you'll be able to go to the Posting Setup for each profile, get quickly redirected to the View Your Next Posts page, or reconnect profiles (when it's time). From here, you can also set the timezone for each of your profiles to match your needs.
