Social media is one of the fastest, easiest, and smartest ways to reach your sphere of influence. If it already isn't, it should be a key part of your marketing strategy - and it goes without saying that Facebook remains the top contender in the social media category for this purpose. So wouldn't it be great if there was a way to get your Prompt content in front of people - right from your Facebook account? Good news, folks - now you can!
We're introducing our new Facebook integration with Prompt! Now you can post your Prompt material to your Facebook right from BombBomb. Once you set up the Facebook integration with Prompt, you'll be able to allow one or all of your Prompt campaigns to post directly to your business Facebook page. Each Prompt will come with a suggested status message for your Facebook post, or you can even create your own if you'd like. If you turn on social sharing and opt not to have a status message accompany it, that's okay - the Prompt campaign will still publish. All of this without you having to lift a finger!
Watch the video above to see how easy it is to integrate your BombBomb account with Facebook!
If you'd prefer to read, here's a step by step:
The first thing we want to do is to connect our Facebook account with Prompt. To do this, log into your BombBomb account and click on the "Prompt" tab. On the left side, click on the "Social Settings" tab.
This will show the accounts you can connect to Prompt. To connect Facebook, click the "Connect Now" button next to the Facebook option.
If you are already signed into Facebook, you will see a prompt asking to continue in your account. If you are not signed in, you may need to sign into your Facebook account for this step. Click the continue button to move forward.
You will then be able to select which Facebook pages you'd like to choose for posting Prompt content. Facebook is unable to post to your personal page, so select your business page. Then, click the "Next" button.
You will then see a page for permissions asking what BombBomb is allowed to do. BombBomb will never use your information; this is simply for permission to post content on your behalf. Make sure all the toggles are on "Yes" and click the "Done" button.
You will then see a message confirming that your BombBomb account is now connected to Facebook. Click the "OK" button to continue.
Now on your Prompt page, you will see in the panel on the left side that your Facebook account is connected. Now we need to make sure your Facebook connection to the campaign you want is turned on. Select the campaign email you wish to share.
Under the campaign settings, make sure the toggle for your Facebook account is turned on and green.
Now it's time to share the campaign you want. Under the campaign in your carousel you'd like to share, click the "Social" button.
This will bring up the social sharing settings for that specific campaign. We provide you with a suggested message you can use to accompany your social post, or you can type your own message into the text box. To use the suggested message, click the "Suggested Message" option and it will paste the suggested message into the text box. Or to create your own message, simply type whatever you want into the text box.
Once you're done editing your social campaign settings, click the "Save & Close" button at the bottom. Your campaign will now post to social media when it automatically sends!
If you want, you can also manually share any Prompt campaigns you'd like to social media at any time. Prompt campaigns are automatically saved in your Emails tab. To do this, click on the "Emails" tab at the top of your page and select the label on the left side where your Prompt campaign is located.
Next to the email you want to share on social media, click the "Use" button.
Now you can edit the email however you want. You can change the text, add a video, etc. Once you're finished editing the email to your preference, click the "Save" button.
Your edited email will now be at the top of your Emails tab as a copy (editing your email does not override the original email campaign - instead, it makes a copy with your edited changes). To post the email to your social media, click the dropdown next to the email you want to share and click the "Link & Share" option.
Now you have the opportunity to share wherever you want. You can copy the link by clicking the "Copy Link" button and paste into any social media post you'd like. Or you can click the Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn icons at the bottom to share your post directly to any of these social media accounts.
