How to set up automated Facebook posting with Bludged.com

You have signed up for Bludged.com – that’s great! We are thrilled to hear that.

What next? One of the coolest features of Bludged.com is the ability to generate Facebook posts based on your website’s content. This way you can create a schedule and focus on your primary business leaving your content marketing running on autopilot. Well, up to a certain limit🙂

But we’ll talk about it later. Let’s start the setup!

How to configure automated feed on Bludged.com

  1. Now first thing you need to set up is your feed source – link your website, and teach Bludged how to parse it. To do that, navigate to “Feed Sources” menu and then click “Add New Feed Source” button.

Finalizing your automated feed setup

Next thing to do is to create a scheduler. Navigate to “Schedulers” menu and click “Add New Scheduler” button.

All done! Now in the background Bludged.com will start crawling your website, generate posts and store them in the system. You would have to approve those before they get posted. But don’t worry, you can approve all by a single button click🙂 Navigate to “Posts”, click “Automated Posts” button to find all your automatically generated posts. If you like what you see just click “Approve All” button and this is it.

Before we wrap up, there is one more thing I wanted to talk about.

Is it good enough to run on autopilot?

The answer would be “NO”. If you only want to fill up your Facebook feed with automatically generated posts listing your products, this is a bad idea. But mixing your manually crafted posts with those product promotions would be a much better approach. So ideally create an automated feed, post with it 3-5 times a week and schedule some manual posts as well. This way your feed looks live and user friendly, your followers don’t feel stuffed with dry product posts.

How does it work

So what is this fancy Freemium subscription? It is a full access to all features of the system with no limitations whatsoever! You get it all for FREE!

But yes, there is a catch! If you choose freemium subscription then Bludged.com reserve a right to tweet on your behalf one promotional tweet after every 100 tweets you posted using Bludged.com services. This promotional tweet would be something like "I am using Bludged.com for automating my Twitter marketing. You should check it out!". Tweets might be different and may contain graphics attached to them, but they will be always targeting Bludged.com promotion.
