Hootsuite and Amplify: getting started guide 

Getting started checklist 

     1. Gather your current social media profile details, make sure you remember your usernames and passwords for when you connect your social networks to Hootsuite. 

     2. Take a look at this short clip of Hootsuite Amplify, the first tool that you'll be using. 

     3. Download the Hootsuite Amplify App from the App Store or Google Play Store. Using your business email address, click on "forgot password" to get a password set-up link sent to you. 

     4. Watch these helpful video tutorials. After downloading and connecting to the Hootsuite Amplify mobile app, you can take your social media efforts to the next level. 

For additional advanced social media functionality, visit the Hootsuite website. You can use the same login as you did for Amplify. You will be able to create your own content, engage with others and listen for keywords. 

Connecting your social accounts 

Once you login to Hootsuite, you’ll land on the home page. 

The first time you sign in, Hootsuite prompts you to connect your social accounts and set permissions. The number of social accounts you can add depends on your plan type, but we recommend adding at least two or three. As an example, an Instagram account, a Twitter account, and a Facebook Page make up a total of three social accounts. 

For step-by-step instructions for connecting each type of account in web or mobile, see:
