Configuring Social Poster

Scheduling and creating posts using Social Poster takes just two simple steps:

  1. Connecting at least one social media profile
  2. Adjusting your settings

The following social accounts can be connected to Social Poster:

  • Facebook: Business Pages
  • Twitter: Profiles
  • LinkedIn: Personal Profiles & Business Pages
  • Instagram: Business Pages
  • Google Business Profile
  • Pinterest: Profiles

The number of profiles you can connect depends on your Semrush plan:

  • Social Subscription users can add up to 10 profiles at a time
  • Pro users can add up to 10 profiles at a time
  • Guru users can add up to 30 profiles at a time
  • Business users can add up to 50 profiles at a time

This article will guide you through the tool’s setup and settings adjustments.

Step 1. Connect your social media profiles

Start with connecting a profile by choosing a social media channel and clicking on the ‘Connect’ button.

If you’re logged into a social profile and using Semrush in the same browser, the tool will prompt you to authorize Semrush to use your account. Otherwise, you’ll have to log into the social platform you want to post from and authorize Semrush to use your account after that.

So, how can you authorize Semrush to use each social media platform?

Facebook Page

  • Add your profile: select your Facebook Page(s) to post from, and tap on ‘Save

Twitter profile

  • In the popup window click on ‘Authorize app
  • Add your profile: select the profile(s) you want to post from and tap on ‘Save

Google Business Profile

  • Sync your Google Profile with the Social Poster

LinkedIn profile

  • In the popup window click on ‘Allow
  • Add your profile: select the profile(s) you want to post from and tap on ‘Save

Instagram profile

  • In the popup window click on ‘Authorize
  • Add your profile: select your profile(s) and tap on ‘Save

Pinterest profile

Once you connect your Pinterest account, the tool will automatically find your boards so when you create a post you’ll also choose the board to post to in the drop-down menu.

You’ll also have the option of adding a website for your image:

Once you’ve connected a social profile, you can add more directly from the tool’s Calendar tab by clicking on the ‘Add profile’ button on the top left.

Step 2. Adjust your settings

This step is optional and can be completed later — once you connect a profile you are free to start creating and scheduling your posts.

To adjust your settings, go to the ‘Settings’ button at the top right of the tool's interface and click on one of the four options.
