How to Promote your Inventr Boards

Administrator Pre Share Text

Before we explain how to share the boards across multiple social media accounts there is a setting on each Inventr board that allows you to insert a small amount of text every time a board is shared, this is only reserved for hashtags. 

To set the share text login to the Inventr dashboard then click boards on the left, find the board that you have embedded in your website or blog and click 'Advanced Settings'

Insert the hashtag and click save.
















Now every time someone submits and answer to your Inventr board and boosts it across all their social networks for points every 7 days it will always display the hashtag you inserted.

Sharing an Inventr board from your WebApp or Blog.

Now that you have successfully created an Inventr board, embedded it in your Facebook page and embedded it your website it is time to promote it across your social media feeds. 

Facebook Tab / Page

Let's do this in Facebook first as you will want to share the Inventr board on your brand page to invite interaction rather than as your personal Facebook account.

To begin, logon to Facebook and view the Facebook page where your Inventr board is embedded.

On the top left you will see a small share icon:




Hit the share icon and when prompted, sign in with Facebook.


Inventr will need permissions to post on your brand page so accept the FB tab permissions to enable this. These are required by all apps that post on your Facebook page.

Once permissions have been accepted, the share options will appear. Here you must type in something to promote the Inventr board, something about the giveaway and or question is fine then select the brand page that you wish to share on.



That's it! You have shared your Inventr board on Facebook. It looks like this:



When customers or followers see the board they will click on it, if they click from a desktop browser then it will rendered the board directly in your Facebook page on the Facebook tab that was created when you embedded the board in your Facebook page.  If they see the board on a smart phone within the Facebook app it will render the board within the Facebook mobile browser allowing customers and fans to submit and boost their own answers across their own social networks, every 7 days this enables a sharing loop. 

Share to Twitter from your Facebook Tab / Page.

Now let's do this for Twitter. Again hit the small share icon to the top left of the board but this time authenticate to Twitter with the brand account you want to promote the board to.

Again type in a message to promote the board and then hit the share to Twitter option.




That's it! You have promoted your embedded Facebook Inventr board to Twitter. Now if anyone see's the following post and they click on it if they click from a desktop browser they will be taken to your Facebook page and tab with the Inventr board if they click on it from a smartphone it will render the board within the Twitter mobile browser allowing customers and fans to submit and boost their own answers across their own social networks, every 7 days this enables a sharing loop. 




Share to LinkedIn from your Facebook Tab / Page.

The exact same process for Twitter above can be completed for Linkedin, again if they click from a desktop browser they will be taken to your Facebook page and tab with the Inventr board if they click on it from a smartphone it will render the board within the Linkedin mobile browser allowing customers and fans to submit and boost their own answers across their own social networks, every 7 days this enables a sharing loop. 



Sharing an Inventr board from your WebApp or Blog.

Sharing from your embedded webapp Inventr boards is slightly different as we want to ensure that when your customers and fans see the board and click on it then it needs to redirect to your webapp or blog site where the board is embedded therefore we need to set the location for it in the board settings. 

To do that login to the Inventr dashboard then click boards on the left, find the board that you have embedded in your website or blog and view the call back URL (in this example we have populated it with inventr.org).

Type in the URL where your have embedded the Inventr board and click save.


Now the callback has been updated you can share the board to Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn in the same methods as listed above.
