In this blog, we will go through the steps to onboard onto the Yip Yip platform as well as how to approve a social media post, both on desktop as well as on our mobile app.
Onboarding to Yip Yip
Step 1: Your social media program is provided through a company called Yip Yip. After submitting your request to join, you will receive an email from their support team.
To begin, find that email, and click “Accept Invitation.”
Step 2: You will be prompted to create an account. Simply add your account information and set up your password.
Step 3: You will now be prompted to connect your social media accounts.
Be sure to allow all permissions so that we can post to your account. Don’t worry – we only request the absolute minimum required. If you do not allow the permissions, the posts will not go out to your accounts.
If you have a business profile on Facebook in addition to your personal profile you will be prompted to select which page you would like your posts to publish to. We recommend using your personal profile as you will have a higher organic reach.
And that’s it! After you are set up you can expect to receive notifications that you have new posts to approve for Facebook (Twitter & LinkedIn will automatically be published to your account).
Mobile App: Approving a Facebook Post
Facebook requires users to approve social posts before they are posted to their social channels. Yip Yip offers a mobile app so you can receive push notifications when you need to post on social media.
Our app, available on Google Play and the App Store, allows users to approve their social posts on-the-go. The images below are taken from an iPhone, however an Android user will have the exact same user experience.
