How to pick a product to share on social media

When your store is connected properly, you should be able to see all your products in the My Products section of your dashboard. Now you can pick any product to schedule/share on your connected social media platforms. Here’s how:

How to share my products on Facebook

Sharing your products on Facebook is easy and simple.

Here’s how to do that.

  1. Make sure you are on the products page. When you login, this is the first screen you’ll see.
  2. Click on the product that you want to share.
  3. Now, select a Facebook page to share your product on.
  4. Optionally, add some message to post along with the product. You can also add hashtags (if you have saved some) just by clicking on the hashtags.
  5. If you want to share your product as a photo (instead of a link), select the “Share as an image post” checkbox.
  6. Select a date and time to post at.
  7. Once you’re done with your post, click on “Schedule”. This will schedule your post.
  8. If you want to post it right now instead of scheduling it, click on “Post now”.
How to change the photo to be shared

When you share your product on Facebook as a photo/image (by selecting “Share as an image post”), you can change which photo of your product gets shared.

To do this, simply select the photo you want to share from the product photos you see on top of the share page.

These photos are taken from the product listing in your shop.

Note: When sharing your product as a link (without selecting “Share as an image post”), Facebook will automatically pick an image for the post based on your product link.

Also, when you share a product as a photo/image, there will be no product link posted along with the image, unless you paste the link in the text field before posting/scheduling. (This is because we can’t add any pre-filled text when users post photos to Facebook through third-party apps, according to their terms).

How to share my products on Pinterest

With Around.io, you can pin your products to Pinterest boards.

Here’s how to do that:

  1. Make sure you are on the products tab. When you login, this is the first screen you’ll see.
  2. Click on any product that you want to share on Pinterest.
  3. Now, select the product photo you want to pin. Simply, click/tap on the photo to select it.
  4. Next, select the Pinterest board you want to pin this product to.
  5. You can then edit the text that goes with your pin (the description). You can also add hashtags if you have added them in your Store Settings.
  6. If you’re scheduling this pin for later, set a date and time.
  7. Then, click on “Schedule”. If you want to post it right now, click on “Post now”.

How to share my products on Twitter

Here’s how to share your products on Twitter with Around.io:

  1. Make sure you’re on the products page. When you login, this is the first screen you’ll see.
  2. Click on the product you want to post to Twitter.
  3. Select the product photo you want to tweet. (Simply, click/tap on the photo)
  4. Edit the tweet text if you want to change it. You can also add hashtags to your tweet by clicking on the hashtags below.
  5. If you’d like to tweet your product as an image, select the “Share as an image post” checkbox. If not, your tweet will be posted as a link tweet.
  6. Then, select a date and time to post at.
  7. Once you’re done with your post, click on “Schedule”. If you want to post the tweet right now, click on “Post now”.
What does “Schedule 3 times in 24 hours” mean? How does it work?

Tweets have very little shelf-life. This is why it is recommended that when you share something on Twitter, you should reshare it a couple more times (so that all of your followers get to see your tweet).

Around.io makes it simpler to re-share a post up to three times in a single day with the “Schedule 3 times in 24 hours” button.

When you click this, we will schedule three tweets out of the same content:

1. The first tweet will be posted immediately
2. The second tweet will be posted in a few hours.
3. The third tweet will go out a few hours after the second tweet.

The scheduled times of second and third tweet are random.

You can confirm that your tweets have been scheduled by checking the Scheduled page.

How to share my products on Tumblr

Sharing products on your Tumblr blog is easy.

Here’s how you to do that:

  1. Make sure you are on the products page. When you login to Around.io, this is the first page you will see.
  2. Click on any product that you want to share on Tumblr.
  3. Now, select the product photo you want to post. Simply, click/tap on the photo to select it.
  4. Next, select the Tumblr blog you want to post to. (If you have only one blog in your Tumblr account, or if you have selected a default blog in your Store Settings, that blog will be selected by default)
  5. Optionally, add some text to post with the photo. You can also add hashtags.
  6. Set a date/time for your post if you want to schedule it for later.
  7. Click on “Schedule” to schedule your Tumblr post. If you want to post it right now, simply click on “Post now”.
