Getting started on Zenia

Wondering where to start, when connecting social media accounts?

You are lucky that you’ve come to a place with integrations to not only the big 3 – Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter, but also Pinterest, Medium.

AND if you are an ECommerce webshop owner, you can also upload your store products, for promotion across social media (= more traffic and sales!), from Amazon and AliExpress, as well.

Due to a lot of requests from people connecting their social media accounts, we are looking at ways of adding YouTube integration, and an Instagram connection that is smooth.

Currently Insta are only opening up connections to their select marketing partners. 🙁

During our closed Beta, we tested connections to Reddit and Hacker News, but they were not very popular, so we decided to take them down.

Let us know if you want to see them back?

We are open to the idea of adding any new integrations that will make your life easier, so make sure you contact us with any requests, via our chatbox on the homepage.

Quick tips on the possible connections for small business owners:

Facebook: You can choose to connect your Personal Account, Business Page or a Group.

LinkedIn: Connect to your Profile and any Company Page you are an Admin of.

Twitter: Add any accounts (Handles) that you have.

Pinterest: Pick a particular Board or your entire account, to connect to.

That is just a very simple intro to the connections available for you and your business.

We are adding more information everyday, to help make the process of connecting social media accounts, finding content and sharing with your audience, easier and easier.

Keep a look out for more blogs and videos, coming soon!

Many thanks What the hell do we do? Are we just another social media scheduling tool?

I am not going to get all pitchy here, but so many people still say they don’t ‘get it!’ – To be honest, sometimes we even say that ourselves.

Let’s talk about social media scheduling and growing your business.

Don’t get me wrong – we do know what Zenia does, but it can help sooo many people, sometimes we just don’t know where to start.

The nice problem we have when looking at the market is, if you are a person responsible for sales and marketing in any sector, you can use our tool to improve your social media activities.

In a simple form, Zenia is a lot like some other social media scheduling tools that have been around for over five to ten years – think Hootsuite, Buffer, CoSchedule and lots more (I mapped over 80 before throwing in the towel and giving up…).


We do the basics very well – we help you to schedule and share articles across the main social medias and give you some analytics of how they perform.

But what we realised a couple of years ago, was that the trend for building organic reach for your brand with a few clicks, were pretty much over on Facebook and LinkedIn.

To help solve that issue, we decided to start off by building in a Facebook (and Instagram soon!) advertising function as well – so you can spend say, 1 dollar a day (other currencies are available!) to expand your reach far and wide.

Building your brand and presenting yourself as a thought leader in your market?

Hands up, if you hate trying to find interesting articles to share with your followers? Yep, time consuming isn’t it, and those Google alerts are pretty crap, aren’t they! The alerts are even a bit biased, some would say…

Yes there are Chrome plugins to capture articles and IFTTT, hook ups to Zapier or Tray, but you don’t have time for that, do you?

We all want to achieve things with the least effort. It’s human nature! So we developed a pretty efficient content recommender that gives you the latest articles from across the web – hot trending stuff, new releases and all from trusted sources.

I won’t get too into the technical stuff of how it works here, but a few clicks can have your calendar up and running with interesting articles, you can then add your own stuff to the library, for posting whenever it fits in. Fairly simple, right?

I’ll expand on some other social media scheduling features later – but for now, please give it a try and reach out to us on social media or via our chat feature on the site.
