Social Media Best Practices-
There are a number of ways to best utilize your social media connections on Untappd for Business.
Sharing Beers to Facebook and Twitter-
One way to keep users up to date and interested in your venue is by sharing your beers to Facebook and/or Twitter.
You can do this by selecting the menu and section of the menu that you would like to edit.
From there, select 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 Facebook and/or Twitter.
Here is an example of this beer shared to Facebook.
Creating Social and Menu Announcements-
You can create announcements that will post on your Facebook page and Twitter feed. Announcements are a great way to make sure that your Facebook and Twitter audiences stay up to date on everything happening at your venue. To do this, select the “Social” option located underneath of the “Announcements” heading on left of your screen.
From here, you will be able to choose whether you would like this announcement shared to Facebook and/or 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.
You can also create menu announcements that will publish onto your Facebook and website menus. You can do this by selecting the “Menu” option located underneath of the ‘Announcement” heading on the left of your screen.
From here, you will be able to choose what announcement you will post to this menu, choose to post it to your Facebook and Website menus, and choose to post the events now, once, or on a weekly recurring basis.
