Target Social Accounts With Rebel Discovery
Chances are that only a fraction of your content is getting to the audiences it deserves. As a core component of the RebelMouse platform, Rebel Discovery give teams an efficient playbook to systematically connect content to the right audiences, build sustainable social relationships, and make distribution a strength in your organization.
How it works:
We're blurring the lines and empowering writers to think content creation and distribution at the same time. The tags of your post will surface suggested Facebook & Twitter accounts to link to your content; edit the tags to optimize results article tags. For each post, select 2-5 discovered accounts that align with your editorial identity:
Pro tip #1: Instead of always going for the big names, be strategic and opt for lesser-known pages with solid fan bases. This increases the likelihood of building a content-sharing relationship.
Pro tip #2: To further attract attention and promote a Facebook page in your post's comments, check off 'Promote in comments' once you select a target account in Discovery search. Note: You can select only one account per post:
