Social media automation is a game-changer when it comes to promoting and distributing events efficiently. Not only does it save time, but it also enhances productivity by eliminating the need for manual review. With Timely, you can now automatically share your event posts on platforms like Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn. Let's dive into how you can effortlessly post events on Facebook through automation.

Streamline Your Social Media Promotions

Sharing events on social media is arguably one of the most effective ways to reach a vast audience with just one marketing action. However, manually publishing events on your online calendar and then reposting them on social media can be incredibly labor-intensive. This is where Timely's native social media automations come in handy.

By automating your Facebook publications with Timely, you can significantly reduce the time spent on distributing events and managing your brand's presence on this social network. It's a win-win situation, where you can focus more on what matters – creating remarkable experiences for your attendees.

Authorize Timely to Post Events on Facebook

Considering that Facebook is one of the most widely used social media platforms globally, tapping into its potential can significantly increase event awareness, engagement, and attendance. To get started, follow these simple steps to authorize Timely's integration with Facebook:

  1. On your Timely dashboard, click on the "Distribution" item in the main navigation menu.
  2. Next, click on the "Facebook" submenu.

The automation feature empowers you to decide how many days and hours before the event starts you want Timely to post on Facebook on your behalf. If you prefer, you can also enable the "Post for all events by default" option. However, keep in mind that this only affects new events and not existing ones.

If you want to be more specific and publish selected events on Facebook, you have the flexibility to do so. Simply go to the event creation page, where you'll find a Social Media option to automatically post events on Facebook.
