How to automatically distribute your blog to Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and more via RSS

One of the most popular features on Sendible is the ability to automatically distribute your blog posts to all your social media accounts at once. This blog post will explain how this can be achieved.

Step 1: Add your social media accounts

The first thing you’ll want to do is add your social media accounts. You can do this by going to Add/Edit Services where you’ll be able to add your Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn accounts as well as many others.  

Step 2: Create a group

  1. After linking up your accounts to Sendible, go to My Groups and click New Group. Give your group a name and click Create.
  2. Once your group has been created, click “Add Contacts/Services…”.
  3. Select the services you wish to add to the group and click “Select Contacts/Services”. These are the services that will receive the RSS posts. You can select as many services as you like.

Step 3: Add the RSS autoposter

Now that you’ve added your social media accounts and created a group of services that will receive RSS posts, you can configure the RSS autoposter.

  1. Go to Add/Edit Services and select the RSS tab.
  2. Click “Add” next to the RSS Auto Poster service.
  3. You will then be taken to the page that allows you to configure your RSS autoposter.
  4. Complete all the settings, by adding your RSS feed and making sure you select the group you created in Step 2 where it says “Post to the following group”.
  5. Click Save Settings for your changes to take effect and Sendible will start distributing your RSS feed.

Geotargeting Facebook Fans with Sendible

We are excited to announce the release of a new powerful piece of functionality exclusive to the Sendible platform. In fact, this has been one of the most frequently requested features and finally Facebook has made this possible via their API. 

What is Geotargeting?

Geo targeting in geomarketing and internet marketing is the method of determining the geolocation (the physical location) of a website visitor and delivering different content to that visitor based on his or her location, such as country, region/state, city, metro code/zip code, organization etc. 

How can I target specific fans within Facebook? 

In Facebook, users disclose a lot of relevant information about themselves – for example their age, gender, location, work history, language etc. As a Facebook Page administrator, you have the ability to deliver content that’s only relevant to specific fans. For example, you may be promoting an event in Los Angeles and only want your promotion to be visible to your fans located near LA who speak a specific language.

An example of a targeted message could be:

“Free comedy tonight at the Spanish Comedy Club in downtown LA.”

And you could target this directly to all fans who are most likely to be engaged by it. For example all people in Los Angeles who speak Spanish.

How do I do this in Facebook?

In Facebook, you would select the Customize option just before you post your update to your fans. Here you can decide exactly which fans your post will be visible to.

How do I do this in Sendible?

In Sendible, when you first add your Facebook Fan Page in Add/Edit Services, you can define exactly who to target. To post to different fans, you can add the same Facebook Fan Page multiple times and just change the “geotargeting” options each time.
