1. Attention Grabber

Here you can enter information that will be shown at the very top of your automated Facebook posts, so needs to be generic to fit every advert. You don't have to use this, but if you do, we recommend keeping it short, a few examples here:

12 months MOT on all vehicles
Finance available, get in touch today!


Once added, click the Preview Text Template button at the bottom of the page to preview an example of how your automated Facebook text will look & if you are happy, click Save.

If you make any changes, click the Preview Text Template at the bottom to preview an example of how your automated Facebook text will look & if you are happy, click Save.

3. Garage Contact Info

4. Automation Post Designs

These are your design templates that will be used for your automated Facebook posts. You can tick or untick these anytime. For example:

If you would rather only use the single banner templates, you can untick all others, followed by save. This will result in your future automated posts only using the single banner templates.

2. Add Priority Button

You are also able to prioritise vehicles for your automated posts, simply click Add Priority & the vehicle will be added to the top of the list for your next automated post.

The automation software will work through all of your vehicles, once it has posted all stock, it will restart from the beginning and work its way back through your vehicles, but always making sure it posts the most recent vehicles that have been imported to your account.
