How do I authenticate social media profiles?

Before a Social Marketing user is able to post to social media profiles, respond to lead searches, and respond to customers, you must first authenticate their social media profiles.

NOTE: Before connecting your clients social account, Ensure you log out of your personal account, and log in with whatever account has management permissions (either an Admin or Editor) for the page you are wanting to connect. OR use a private browsing session ( such as Chrome Incognito, or Firefox 'New Private Window') 

 

  1. From Social Marketing, select Settings > Connect Accounts
