Social Media Best Practices
There are a number of ways to best utilize your social media connections on Untappd for Business.
Sharing Beers to Twitter
One way to keep users up to date and interested in your venue is by sharing your beers to your Twitter account.
You can do so by selecting the beer* you would like to share, select the share option at the bottom of the screen, and choose if you would like to share this beer to Twitter.
*You only have the ability to share beers to social media, we do not support the ability to share the addition of non-beer items to your menu on the Untappd app.
Creating Social and Menu Announcements
You can create announcements that will post on your Twitter feed. Announcements are a great way to make sure that your Twitter audience stays up to date on everything happening at your venue. To do this, select the “Social” option located underneath the “Announcements” heading on the left of your screen.
From here, you will be able to choose whether you would like this announcement shared to Twitter, create the announcement, upload an image or GIF, and choose whether to send the announcement out now, once, or on a weekly recurring basis.
Now: This is for one-time announcements. “We’re closed for the holiday” or “Just received a special delivery of __________ (insert super amazing beer)!”
Once: These are scheduled announcements: “Alpine Tap Takeover Friday 1/6 - 2 limited release kegs will be tapped!!"
Weekly: These are recurring announcements: Firkin Friday, ½ price drafts, or Happy Hour Specials.
