They say that an image is worth a thousand words, so what’s a better way to show your company or services off than with an image? Using Social Booster, you can save time by uploading images to more than one location at once and ensure that your messages across different channels are all the same without all the extra work!

If you still need to connect your Social Brand account, please follow the instructions in Connecting a Website with Social Booster.

    • Page(s) - This is required to enter what social channel pages the post will be sent to. You can pick multiple pages if you need to connect them.
    • Post text - It is capped out at 1,000 characters.
    • Image(s) - Instagram and Google My Business only support uploading one image per post at the time of release. Facebook supports up to ten photos, nine for LinkedIn and four for Twitter.
